Standard Chartered Marathon

I woke up at 7:30 am on a sunday morning not just like that but because of my marathon. My sleepy head, closing eyes, tired legs didn't want me to go to run but I decided to carry on. I left home and reached the starting point. My race was a kids dash as i was not eligible to run 10 km. It was a 1 Km race and I wasn't set. Mainly because i didn't want to run and secondly because I thought I was too slow. The minute I reached I got to know my race was in 5 min! I rushed to the starting point and to my astonishment I saw Robbie Fowler. You guys must have heard abut him. I took a picture with him and also got his autograph! Suddenly my face became from sad and tired to excited and happy. The rae strted and I ran my fullest. I was fortunately the first 20 people aout of 300 kids :) NOT SHOWING OFF! It was a great day...Although I'm tired, It was the determination and commitment which pushed me. I ran to my fullest and got a medal :) Can't wait for next year! GOO STANDERED CHARTERED :)

Love and Sacrifice

Love happens but always ends with a sacrifice  Today, our class read a short story and my attention was quickly diverted into the book and I was dwelled into the story. The idea of love and sacrifice really fascinated me because I knew that every love story ended with a sacrifice. The idea of a typical love story. Mr Raisdana and our class had this interesting talk about how every love story ends with a sacrifice. How every story follows a pattern, A pattern of love at first and slowly problems ending up in a sacrifice. I'm sure most of you reading my blogs must be thinking about the rather strange topic i chose but instead of teasing me or making that face, try to think deep and try to look and relate and differ from all the books you have read and all the movies you have seen. Every love story follows a pattern. First there is love, then the love spreads, then comes the problems which break apart the relationship. More problems come, there is drama and one person being the boy or the girl has to sacrifice. Scarifying is something in every relationship. True love is very hard to be found....

Chiang Mai


OH MY GOSH! 1 more day and I'm off to Chiang Mai! Ahhh....the fun time I had in tioman with my school was an unforgettable trip. Now, after 2 solid years, I'm ready to go for another one! Chiang Mai caught my attention when I first heard about it mainly because I hadn't been to trip for a long time now and the stay of 2 whole weeks. 2 weeks is a very long time for me as I've never been on a trip so long. Chiang Mai, Here I come!

Things I Want to do before I die

I know you all might find this a rather strange topic. But I always wanted to have such a list. This is all random and the things you might find below might make you have horrible thoughts. But I soooo want to do these :)

Things I want to do before I die :-
1. Take a Ride In a Hot Air Balloon screaming 'OH MY GOSH, IM FLYING AWAY'.
2. Meet Harry styles :)
3. Make Vanilla pudding and fill it in a mayo jar. Walk in public and eat it 
4. learn some martial art
5. Become a fake teacher, stress my students over an extremely important, hard test. Only to give them the test a week later, with instructions printed on the top to NOT answer any of the questions on the test for 100%. Watch the rage begin.
6. .Spill popcorn over the person's head infront of you in the Cinema.

OH MY GOSH THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS I CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER!

Ellen scred new Staff! :D

This might be an old video from Ellen but it's so funny! Haha xD
In this video, Ellen welcomed her new staff member, Allison, by giving her some hilarious holiday-themed scares!
Just watch this video :)

Mitt Romney Or President Obama??



Whoever wins Tuesday's presidential election, be it Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, their allies and foes have a number of demands and wishes awaiting the victor.
Who do you think deserves the right to win the elections and take place as the next US President?  
Mitt Romney or our previous President, Barack Obama? This is actually a very heated topic and many people are talking about it. Some fear that their elected representative will fail and some fear the devastation of their country.

Most people according to Statistics want Barack Obama to win and he indeed has a very high percentage but both campaigns fought hard for months for the right. I personally want Barack Obama to be and continue as the President because he was a great one for the past five years. Unlike other presidents, he has the serious side but also the fun and enjoyable side. I'm not saying Mitt Romney will not be a good president but I really liked the attitude and commitment of Obama and I will always be on his side. 
Now it's up to you, Who do you wish to be the President? Mitt Romney or Obama? The battle is on...

Single stories??

Chimamanda was an early reader and writer. She started to read at the age of 2 and began writing in the age of 7. At that time, she was given American and british books to read and she was very much influenced by them. Her characters were all white, lived where it snowed, ate apples and were typical americans/britishers. But the truth was, where she lived, none of this was true. In this video, she explains how vulnerable we are when it comes to books and we directly copy the ideas of what you read. In er case it was american books. She was overwhelmed and shocked when she saw the african books and read them. She realized that people like her could be characters and they could exist. She then quickly diverted away from the idea of 'single stories'. The idea of looking things from one perspective no matter how wrong it was. The african books saved her from the 'single story' of what she thought was books. She related many other 'single story' incident in her lives about the thoughts of her roommate, the houseboy she had in Nigeria etc. Her  main aim in this story was to tell how wrong single stories were and how they could mislead someone completely.

Cues

  • The idea of single stories
  • What society thinks about one perspective
  • The false assumptions single stories can lead you to
  • There were no connections of equality
  • To look at one point of view/perspective is wrong. A healthy story should have different point of views in order to be balanced.
  • The idea about stories being dependent on power
  • The fact that single stories make a story incomplete
  • One assumption of view of a person can make many people relate it and therefore mislead their path


Summary
I think the main aim of this talk was to depict the fact that single stories are a bad influence and only look at one perspective. They related it to a Nigerian woman's life/experience to show what society relates from single stories. They show people one thing over and over again and we must overlook the idea and write from different perspectives.


Admiring the sunset- Another point of view


I lay on my back, the warm coarse sand touching my soft skin, making me feel as if I am lying down on a warm bed of salt. I gently lift up the fresh,brown, fallen twig and mimic how I would paint clouds on the cloudless baby blue sky above me. Sam and I were back from a long tiring day. The beach was all we could think of for relaxation and peace of our minds. Sam’s arm was stretched out with my tired head dumped on it. As I lay under the warm sun,with my stick in my heavy hand, something caught the corner of my eye. Something that I had not seen in a long time and it always fills my lovely heart with hope and love. The red, big ball of great light was slowly setting. My eyes caught on to the spectacular view/sight of a sunset. But before I could make my move, I was startled by a violent swing on my face. I fell towards the ground, I blinked my eyes, slowly got up and rubbed of the warm sand off my tanned body.

My eyes were filled with anger, and rage. I looked closely at that mannerless person. I realised she was a girl. Who was that girl?! Didn’t she have any manners? How could she just barge into me? I was totally furious by her atrocious behaviour. I stared at her with absolute disgrace. I slowly walked back to where Sam was lying down. My excited, peaceful mood had suddenly turned into an angry, furious mood. Sam turned around and saw my anger filled face. He asked me what was wrong and i couldn’t help but tell him. I complained about that girl and all he gave was a loud mirth. This loud laugh made me very upset. I got up and walked off.

I was very close to where that girl was standing... admiring the beauty. I realised she was much younger than me and probably didn’t see me, maybe the beauty of the sun didn’t make her realise where she was walking. I guess I probably overreacted to the situation. I started observing her unique concentration and focus towards the sight. I was totally overwhelmed by her present act. I looked at the sun. It was....wow....

The only thought in my mind was of the exquisite and glorious sight in front of my eyes.. Many people and their tired bodies were there after a long day from work. It was a romantic sight and I was overwhelmed by its beauty. It was a ravishing and stunning act of nature which occurred when the day turned into night. Sunsets have always been a wonderful and fascinating sight for me to view but this sunset was more than just usual. It was just unique and different,the sky started filling with vibrant and rich colours. Slowly everyone started leaving, You could hear the birds and fish. You could smell the scent of the water and the caress of the breeze. It was pure heaven. Now I realised why that girl couldn’t see anything but the unique sight in front of her.

My hair was flying into the cold,wet air and my eyes were stuck to the orange,fiery sun. I could hear was the sounds of the water crashing to my legs as i went deeper and deeper.The sunset had a feeling, It had a mystical feeling which made your heart dwell. The sun, like a large, orange fireball in the distance was cloaked by hanging clouds which were splashed with random colours of hot pinks, and even hints of purple and blues.The purple sky with the orange fireball circling in the middle created an admirable sight which can still never be forgotten by me.

Sunsets have always been an amazing sight for me and are one of my favourite scenes to admire and watch. As the night dawned, the beautiful sky turned into a soft crimson, the colors overtook the sky filling in each corner of the pale field. The magnificent beams of the sun shimmered on the water below. Wow. Sam slowly came and put his arm around me. I leaned onto his hard,muscular,tanned body. I hugged him tight on his waist. Ours eyes met and we slowly came closer to each other. Our lips met. I couldn’t believe it was my first kiss. My first kiss was during a sunset all thanks to that girl. She was an angel.

I now pay regular visits to this sunset hoping to find that girl and to thank her. But always when I’m there...Peace. Serenity. Contentment. A mixture of all of these creates the unmatched feeling that overwhelms me when I’m at the beach, watching the sun setting down.

Admiring the sunset- POV Final

I lay on my back, the warm coarse sand touching my soft skin,I am laying on a warm bed of salt. I gently lift up the fresh,brown,dingy stick and mimic how I would paint clouds on the cloudless baby blue sky above me. I lay under the warm sun,with my stick in my heavy hand, something caught the corner of my eye. Something that I had not seen in a long time and it always fills my lovely heart with hope and love. The red, big ball of great light was slowly setting. My eyes caught on to the spectacular view/sight of a sunset. I slowly got up and rubbed of the warm sand off my tanned body.

I walked closer to this spectacular range of colors in the sky and the only thought in my mind was of the exquisite and glorious sight in front of my eyes. Many people and their tired bodies were there after a long day from work. It was a romantic sight and I was overwhelmed by its beauty. It was a ravishing and stunning act of nature which occurred when the day turned into night.

Sunsets have always been an amazing sight for me and are one of my favourite scenes to admire and watch. As the night dawned, the beautiful sky turned into a soft crimson, the colors overtook the sky filling in each corner of the pale field. the magnificent beams of the sun shimmered on the lake below.

I spent my entire day at this wonderful beach admiring its beauty. Peace. Serenity. Contentment. A mixture of all of these creates the unmatched feeling that overwhelms me when I’m at the beach, watching the sun setting down. A sunset.

Castle


Murder, death, investigation, suspicion, accusation, mystery. Are those the word you search for in a TV show?? Castle in that case is something you should surely look for and see. Castle is a TV series and has had 4 successful series till now. It has a season 5 which just started recently. Richard Castle, a famous mystery writer and novelist is brought into NYPD. In NYPD, he meets kate beckett. Castle comes to the NYPD in order to know more mystery and murderous stories and write his books on those. Kate initially does not like castle in her team but through the seasons she slowly starts to like him and this friendship eventually turns into love. Castle is a funny, adventurous and fun guy who writes books and also solves cases. Kate is a self centered, annoying yet fun and cool to hand out with. Castle has always been one of my favorite things to watch on TV and I'm always sure to tune into it whenever possible. Castle is a must watch Tv serial. Must watch I repeat.

iPad Mini..Are you Kidding me?!




Here comes apple with another remarkable product, The iPad Mini. At first, my thoughts were pretty much the same as most of you are currently thinking. I was like ‘Oh My Gosh..Are you kidding me?? is apple that jobless??’ But looking at the product and going deeper into it, I realized it wasn’t all that bad. Apple had made the price nearly half of the normal iPads. The structure is the same, it is just smaller and more convenient to carry around. The iPad mini I have to say is not one of the best apple products in the world but it is not bad either. It is an interesting piece of art and is very much like a phone. The iPad mini when you think of it is not as bad but yet another creation of apple. It is a competition for the other small/mini pads from samsung and other different famous brands. The iPad mini has an amazing camera, the new software (iOS 6). The iPad mini isn’t all bad as you think it is actually. Try to dwell more and think deeper.

Why hate Justin Bieber?

Woah. I just saw Michelle’s video...I must say it was something..umm...different! Looking at all those brilliant ideas and videos, I very much enjoy reading them. Holidays have always been fun for me but this time all I’m doing is getting bored and lazy. So, after a long time of ‘being lazy and doing nothing’ I decided to write a short post on Justin Bieber. It’s actually a very random topic to be frank. Some if you must be pleased that I’m writing about him and some of you must have that grudge and hatred to my post. But frankly speaking, Why do we hate Justin bieber? Because of his girly voice? Oh come on, he has passed that voice already. Is it because of his choice of music, genre, pitching in his voice? To be frank, its just the awareness that has made his image bad in front of us. Sometimes I love hearing his music and sometimes because my friends don’t like it or he’s just being ‘weird’ changes my opinion. Justin Bieber does not have the best voice in the world but we don’t have to crib about that. If he pukes on stage, the news goes viral! I mean come on, Who does not puke? Is there something wrong with that? He is just an ordinary teenager with a dream to become famous and i think he succeeded in that. People also don't like his hair, but why do people look at it? It obviously has something to admire about and thereofore people like it. It's different and unique and people should first look at their hair,compare and then draw conclusions.Sometimes people don’t like the fact he’s famous for ‘nothing’. Well, he isn’t famous for nothing. He worked hard and therefore his voice proved the world that he was capable to move on to the next level. People also use the word ‘gay’ to describe him but seriously!? Are you kidding me?! How do you know? Did u live with him? Is it because of his voice? According to me, Justin Bieber does not have the best voice in the world but definitely does not have the worst. He is an ordinary boy with a dream and I think we should let him move on with his dream. Why do we hate him? Anyone has any answers to that?

My Journey till now - Perks of Being a Wallflower


My Journey till now

Reading has always been one of the activities I like to do when I’m bored and tired and need something to cheer me up. The perks of being a wallflower is the current book I’m reading as I said in my earlier post. Charlie (the main character) seems like a nice and straightforward boy but also seems to have some problems. Unlike everyone in high school, he talks about weird things at time that makes you wonder about his personality. I have read a lot during these past few weeks because I really like the letters Charlie writes, They are straight forward and easy to understand unlike other letters. He has also made some good friends. They include Sam, a very pretty girl who has a great personality and enjoys/lives life the way she wants to. Also, Charlie has a big crush on her and as i said before; him being straightforward, told Sam his feelings but because he was younger than Sam and all she joked saying ,” you know you’re younger than me right?’. Charlie still has a big crush on her and can’t resist to her unique beauty. He has also met Sam’s brother Patrick and all three of them have become really good friends. Patrick has a funny personality and gets teased very often because of one mistake he made when he was young. He isn’t usually called Patrick but called by the name of ‘nothing’. I’m not going to tell you why...Because you have the read the book for that! 
Also, now Charlie is getting invited to parties and people are knowing who he is. He has an existence. Charlie is very happy with his life. Teachers are complementing him, People are accepting him in their groups and he is leading a great life. I mean What else could a High Schooler want?

‘Sam’ From iCarly










HAHAHAHA! THAT WAS SOO FUNNY :D You got pretty freaked out didn't you? ;)
Rough, funny, talented and food are the only words that come to my mind when I think of Sam. Well I wouldn’t say that Sam is normal neither would I say she isn’t. She does not fear of anything and can do anything when it comes to her advantage. She is a dare devil. She is very tough (not like most girls) and is very funny. Her character sometimes states weird statements. She has enough power to beat any boy up and is prone to aggression. She loves food and can surely not live without it She has a particular love for heat. Other than all these things, Sam is a very nice and good girl at heart. Sam’s weirdness is proven in one of the episodes when she says that she has a twin sister and her mom gave birth to both of them in a gas station and then drove off from there. Sam also with her best friend Carly has a web show in which they; through funny and weird ways create entertainment for the people. Sam...well relates to me because she is aggressive and can’t stand anything when it comes to insulting her or her friends, I tend to also do that occasionally because I can stand the fact. She loves meat! Even i do! Also, sometimes the comments she makes is weird but makes everyone laugh! I tend to do that because i like to enjoy my life and well make everyone happy. She sometimes refers to herself as ‘momma’ and i too...well sometimes ;) Sam’s character is unique and i tend to relate myself to her very much while she I’m watching iCarly. Her real name is Jennette McCurdy and I will very soon like to meet her.

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower- Stephen Chbosky

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower- Stephen Chbosky
Wow. This book is a very good book and is definitely one I haven’t read in a long,long time. I’m in middle school and very soon everything will change and I will be in high school. Pressure, studies, academics will be most important at that time at that time. This book through a mysterious and fun way shows you how high school life is. How growing up is, the problems people face at home and many more things. It tells about the story of a 15-year old boy charlie, who is struggling in high school. He is struggling to cope up with his feeling for his first love sam. I chose this book after i heard about the movie. The movie stares very good actors and actresses. Watching the trailer, made me wonder how the book would be. Therefore, looking at the book in the library, i decided to read it. Till now, I have only learnt about Michael's death (Charlie’s best friend) and how Charlie expresses his deep sorrow for his friend. Charlie also tells about his sister and brother and the corrupt acts they do but also expresses his love towards them. I think this book will be worth to read! I will soon write about this book in my next post :)

2012- Is the world going to end?


I hesitate to write this article because I don’t want to scare people. But actually, The thought of the world coming to an end is killing me! Is the world actually going to end? What’s going to happen? I don’t want to die! 

I remember on 31st december 2011, the minute the clock struck 12, I was so happy to start a new year. My heart was filled with joy and I danced the whole night.That night, one of my friends came out with an interesting comment. She said,’ uhhh...guys...It’s the start of a new year and all but the year 2012 is the ending of the world. You know that right?’. My comment at that time was a very vague one. I said’ ahhh...no need to worry about that! It’s just a saying...nothing is going to happen lah!’. That comment echoes in my mind today. Is the world actually going to end? Is it just a saying? Is it the truth?

My heart is pounding while writing this but c’mon, we have got to face the reality....Is the ending of the world approaching? Are we all going to die? Is this what lies in our destiny?

Darwin- Waterfall Serenity















Last month on my trip to Darwin (Australia), It was a warm, lovely saturday morning and me and my family decided to visit the ‘Jim And Jam’ waterfall.It was an amazing and breathtaking waterfall in the kakadu national park.The moment i arrived at this waterfall, I was fascinated by its unique beauty and this photograph above depicts that waterfall vividly. The water was pure, refreshing and and brought a smile to my face.The sounds of water splashing everywhere, the pounding, the laughs of the children was a pleasing and beautiful sight to see. We all quickly changed into my swimming costumes and jumped in the cool,icy water. There were sudden shivers sent to my body. It was truly an amazing sight to see. The serenity in darwin and its national parks is something i still cannot explain. This national park was truly a blissful and extraordinary place with a wide range of wildlife and amazing sceneries.  My sister in fact created a splashing steady pattern of endless rhythms and the water falling felt like the heartbeat of the earth as it crashed on the rocks.
The rich and thick greenery I was surrounded in caused the sight of the waterfall to be just right. the sun shining brightly on the waterfall causing a beautiful reflection to occur...
The dense growth of the leaves and grass on the outskirts of the river made the sight even more appealing. Visitors from all around the world were present there and they spent their entire day either camping or admiring its beauty. We spent the entire day laughing, sharing thoughts and admiring its beauty. This was an unforgettable journey and i will never forget it. This waterfall is indeed a sight of nature that cannot be depicted it words...it's a magical sight which takes you to a different world.....

Michael Phelps- A tribute!

Michael Phelps. Of course you know him!  The champion is an American swimmer who has won 22 Olympic medals—six gold and two bronze at Athens in 2004, eight gold at Beijing in 2008, and four gold and two silver at London in 2012. Phelps holds the record for most gold medals won in a single Olympics (Beijing, 2008), and set a new record for most Olympic medals in 2012, beating gymnast Larisa Latynina's prior record of 18. He is truly an inspiration for me because of his attitude towards a sport. I have gained a lot of motivation from him to play my sport. He is indeed a great swimmer with a great style. He was named as the most decorated olympian in history. Young athletes like me have been talking about this great man as an inspiration and how he has made a completely new way of learning a sport with his attitude. He is indeed one of my favorite athletes and i hope you too find him the same. ‘You can't put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get’ Do it the way he says.

The London Olympics

h

For me, there are a number of reasons why the London Games have been so successful this year. London has been hosting the Olympics for the past few years and has always had good views. This year’s Olympic’s were very famous and the word was spread out mainly because of the sporting events lining up. There were various sports and many religions had shared participation. There was unity and there there were no fights or quarrels between any countries. I still remember the time during the summer holidays when I was sitting at home, bored and had nothing to do. olympics was an event which kept me busy. I enjoyed going through the different channels and watching the various sports. Supporting my favorite athletes and countries made me feel so proud and happy. The participation events had been a big hit with the crowds, and they were great because they got many people interested in the new sports and activities. Come on! sometimes you have got to admit it, Sitting at home all alone in summer with nothing interesting coming on TV, what did you do? I’m pretty sure you switched on the TV to watch the olympics. 

The London Olympics were a great thing to come and people were dying to see their countries play this time. Although the athletes might not be professional ,There was a lot of improvement from all the athletes. There was more competition and many people liked watching them. Entertainment was what they needed and entertainment was what the olympics provided them. My reason for watching the Olympics was mainly because I wanted to see how India was doing in the olympics, diving, weight lifting, volleyball and athletics. Usain Bolt was the man i wanted to see run. A few people this year came to see the olympics mainly to watch Usain run. The people wanted to see and know whether Usain kept his title of the fastest man alive or someone else beat him. There were many viewers because this event only occurs once in 4 years and many people are hardcore fans. Another reason for watching the Olympics was to watch my one and only favorite swimmer Michael Phelps. Although he didn't do well this time. His effort and commitment cannot be argued on.

Most of you might not agree with me saying that it will come again and there is nothing so special about it. But, i advise you to think again and admit that you yourself see it every 4 years. You might say it is only there for people to make money and raise prices but is that actually true? The people responsible for this might be doing this for many people to be aware of what sports there are. I think it is important to know facts before making conclusions. It caused a big impact and that’s mainly the point.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge


Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge 

Kate Middleton? The name sounds familiar doesn't  it? Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is the beloved wife of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and a member of the british royal family. Unlike Prince Harry, Kate grew up in a middle class family. She grew up in Chapel Row, a village near Berkshire, England. She studied at Scotland where she met Prince William of Wales in the University Of St Andrews. They were both married very recently in 2010 and Kate created a major impact on the way people viewed fashion in Britain. It was called as the ‘Kate Middleton effect’. Kate is a name heard by many of us and we think that the reason is because she is part of the royal family. Well, I think of Kate just like one of us because she led her life just like us. I know her for her personality and originality. Kate is truly an inspiration for many. She is prominent for her fashion sense and style and has been placed on numerous ‘best dressed’ lists. Her dress on her wedding was truly an amazing dress. She didn’t use some famous designer but one of her close friends to make such a lovely dress for her. Kate is a beautiful and loving life, she is at the same time fashionable and known. She has all the qualities and deserves to be a famous person. She truly is one of the most influential people of all times.

One Direction













One Direction
Liam Payne, Harry styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan are the ingredients to make the british boy-band ‘One Direction’. They created history with their great looks, charm, talent, human kindness and their dazzling voices. These 5 boys changed the way music was viewed and created a completely new era. They are known all over the world as cute, sensational and phenomenal. I’ll be surprised to hear someone not knowing ‘One Direction’. Their journey started in a famous show viewed by millions of people worldwide called as the ‘X factor’. This wonderful platform made all of them meet and form a boy band called ‘One Direction’. Unfortunately, they did not win but their talent made them go ahead in life. Their international chat-topping song ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ created a huge impact and their fame started from there. I love this band not only because of their singing but how they all work together as a team. Their personalities and charm makes them shine and unique from everyone else.  They are adored by many people worldwide including me and I will never give up on them! 'words will be just words, until you bring them to life'- One Direction

Lady Gaga's dress sense- Wacky or creative?















Lady Gaga's dress sense- Wacky or creative?

Dress sense. This is a very important word in our daily life. Your dress sense is what you need in order to move ahead in life. The people around us judge us by our dress code and appearance. My family and me often have arguments on lady gaga’s dress sense. They make fun of her dress sense and call it silly. Whereas, I always completely disagree with them. I have always found her dress sense to be innovative and creative. It might be wacky and weird at times, but thats what makes her different and unique. 

She has changed the way we view fashion. When Lady Gaga hits the red carpet, watchers just aren’t asking whether she looks good or bad, they’re more likely to ask,” wow, is that a live bird on her head?” Each Lady Gaga costume is a true work of art and the proof is always in her photos. Many people might have different opinions about her style. but I have to say, she definitely likes to go over the top with her fashion clothes. Being a pop star with a phenomenal voice, people usually view the way a celebrity dresses. Specially magazines and paparazzi. Lady gaga always astonishes them b her new and creative dress every time she is seen in public. She guarantees to get noticed. Whatever she wears, is truly remarkable.

Success changes people- What do you think?

Success changes people - what do you think?
Success is accomplishment of a job and achievement of an honor. The reward brings positive ways to encourage the successful man. Success changes the people around. Sometimes, egotism and selfish admiration and allied attitude of that man may spoil the growth process. A few people around us were once the only ones always left out but now because of their success,they are never left out and are always included. Their behavior slowly starts to change and they think of themselves at a very high standard. You may be successful and profitable but that shouldn’t change your attitude towards everything. It shouldn’t be the reason for your change. One example of a man who was very successful but one of his mistakes changed his life completely. His attitude and passion towards making animations changed and his entire career collapsed. This man is known as Walt Disney. Walt disney was a very favorable man who created the world famous disney. He was credited and many people admired his amazing work. But he was flourishing so much that his behavior towards his work completely changed. This caused his company to collapse and go bankrupt. Therefore, in my opinion, success isn’t everything. It comes and goes. What you have to keep in mind is the fact that your attitude and passion must never end. The key is always in your hand. You have to make the right decision.

Nik Wallenda
















Nik Wallenda. A very familiar name isn’t it? Well, he stands as one of my idols because of the near death adventure he was able to do. He is an american stuntman who became the first person in more than a century to cross the Niagara Falls on a tightrope.He crossed the immensely high Niagara Falls in less than half an hour which is a great time limit. A man at a tender age of 33 was watched by over a billion people on TV and about 125,000 people standing at the gorge and watching this live. He took an unbelievable time to traverse the 1,800ft gap from Canada to the US on a 2 in-thick steel cable on friday night.
According to him, he just wanted to show everyone the true happiness experienced from it. The wind was crashing at a very high speed at that time of the day and that was something this wonderful man tackled. To aid his balance, he also used a 40ft pole, attached by a brace to his neck. This man showed the world how to reach out and reach beyond and that truly is a great thing for many people worldwide. To end his remarkable  journey he said ‘ this is what dreams are made of, and i hope i did inspire the people to reach out for the skies’. Nik Wallenda is truly an idol for many of us!

CYBER BULLYING


CYBER BULLYING












Bullies and mean girls and boys have been around forever, but technology has given them a whole new platform for their actions. The real world has changed and online technology has exceeded to a very high limit. Cyber bullying can be a very dangerous factor for many people online. Name-calling, swearing and hurting the person has been one of the reasons and actually a very common reason for people to suicide. Cyber bullying is found on many social networking sites such a Facebook, twitter, texting, chatting. The person bullying the child does not know how the child feels. This sometimes causes the person to go in depression and many other symptoms.  Demi Lovato, I’m sure many of you must have heard of that name. She is an amazing singer and actress. During her sad childhood, she experienced cyber bullying. Demi Lovato has always been outspoken when it comes to being a bullying victim. She also wrote a heart touching song called as “skyscraper”. It showed how her life as a child was. During her childhood, She was under a lot of depression because she was cyber bullied and to overcome this, she would cut herself in parts of her body. Now being so successful she tells people to never do what she did. Many people are cyber bullied everyday because of their looks or because of how hey act. They receive threats and that is a very bad thing. Cyber bullying is bad and i will spread the awareness. IT HAS TO BE STOPPED.

HARRY STYLES

Harry styles. Hearing this I always get a picture of a a charming boy with a dazzling smile. Harry styles stands an idol for me and will always stand as one. His good looks, talent and charm has endeared him to millions worldwide. I remember telling everyone how much I loved harry styles and how one day he would come and visit me. But everyone till date makes fun of me. I still have that hope deep inside my heart that me, being a big fan of this charming man will get a chance soon. He is a member of a british band called as 'One Direction'. He came up with this wonderful band name and many people know him around the world very well. His great voice and hair is the main reasons why girls (like me) are crazy over him! I love his unique personality and I always will no matter what other think. He has been an idol for me and he always will be.'A dream is only a dream, until you make it true', This is a truly marvelous and inspirational quote by him. I absolutely admire his music and looks but on the most I love his attitude towards everything. Dreams can only come true if u let them and harry styles did let them. He is truly an idol for many worldwide...

My English Class

This class has been a truly inspirational class for me. In this class I have done things I have never ever done in my life. I feel very comfortable sharing my thoughts with everyone in this class and that is something I didn't expect to do in this school being new. I have learned many things out of which learning how to create a blog  has been a completely new and different thing for me. I have learned many more things like 'the round table' and the free writing. Other than that I have learned how to be free and comfortable in sharing my ideas. I have learnt the idea of sharing most vividly. I now also know about the   UWCSEA rules and the safety online and offline the computer. I'm looking forward to this class and hope this class truly becomes my favorite! A few weeks ago, I barely knew anything about the Macbook, I was completely new to this high-tech system. Now I know almost everything about the computer and what wonderful  and creative things you an do with this amazing machine. I enjoy sharing my ideas and  thoughts the most in this class. The idea of the 'round able' is wonderful and the way everyone is free inspires me a lot. I enjoy sharing my views and getting others. The idea of the 'round table' is a great idea and I really enjoy it .I don't particularly have anything I wish we could do differently. I love the way this class works and admire it! I'm very much looking forward to this class and am eager to know what's in store for me!

Last month on my trip to Darwin (Australia), It was a warm, lovely saturday morning and me and my family decided to visit the ‘Jim And Jam’ waterfall.It was an amazing and breathtaking waterfall in the kakadu national park.The moment i arrived at this waterfall, I was fascinated by its unique beauty and this photograph above depicts that waterfall vividly. The water was pure, refreshing and and brought a smile to my face.The sounds of water splashing everywhere, the pounding, the laughs of the children was a pleasing and beautiful sight to see. We all quickly changed into my swimming costumes and jumped in the cool,icy water. There were sudden shivers sent to my body. It was truly an amazing sight to see. The serenity in darwin and its national parks is something i still cannot explain. This national park was truly a blissful and extraordinary place with a wide range of wildlife and amazing sceneries.  My sister in fact created a splashing steady pattern of endless rhythms and the water falling felt like the heartbeat of the earth as it crashed on the rocks.
The rich and thick greenery I was surrounded in caused the sight of the waterfall to be just right. the sun shining brightly on the waterfall causing a beautiful reflection to occur...
The dense growth of the leaves and grass on the outskirts of the river made the sight even more appealing. Visitors from all around the world were present there and they spent their entire day either camping or admiring its beauty. We spent the entire day laughing, sharing thoughts and admiring its beauty. This was an unforgettable journey and i will never forget it. This waterfall is indeed a sight of nature that cannot be depicted it words...it's a magical sight which takes you to a different world.....

We were searching for dinner. Darwin being a small place didn't really have a variety of  cuisines but our stomachs were growling and we needed food to please our mood. We pushed our heavy bodies and walked whining. It was around 6pm and the sun was slowly setting. While watching my family whine and forcefully drag their bodies. my eyes caught on to the beautiful sight of a sunset. My hunger vanished. all i could think about at that moment was the beautiful sight in front of my eyes.I slowly started walking closer to the beach where many people around were sitting and admiring the beauty of the sun. It was a romantic sight and i was overwhelmed by its beauty. It was a beautiful act of nature which occurred when the day turned into night. Sunsets have always been a wonderful and fascinating sight for me to view but this sunset was more than just usual.It was just.....different...the sky started filling with vibrant and rich colours. My entire family was surprised and astonished to see such a lovely sunset and we all sat there admiring it. Hunger wasnt even i thought that occured to my mind.
the sunset had a feeling.....It had a mystical feeling which made your heart dwell with its divine beauty. It was like when the sun, like a large, orange fireball in the distance is cloaked by hanging clouds which are splashed with random colours of hot pinks, and even hints of purple and blues. The cool breeze gushed through my long hair and was almost like the touch of a human hand. The purple sky with the orange fireball circling in the middle created an admirable sight which can never be forgotten by me.
The still, cool ocean created a relaxing feeling and is just the right thing for a person who came back from his/her tiring day at work....
Sunsets have always been an amazing sight for me and are one of my favourite sceneries to admire and watch. The best part of the sunset is when the sun is right on the horizon almost about to disappear. In this part, the light from the sun spreads across a large area and shines its brightest before the returning the next morning.
Sunsets are truly very memorable sights and always remember that every time you wake up and ask yourself, what good things am i going to do today?, remember that when the sun goes down at sunset, it will take a part of your life with it....That was the most remarkable sight of a sunset i had ever seen! The sight cannot be explained in words....
