The Newspaper

Hello Blogger's! This morning I picked up a nice hot chocolate and Sunday paper with my dad. When I got home I had nothing better to do but read the newspaper. I saw an article about my school in there, about how our soccer team won state. My brother plays on the soccer team and I was at the game. Reading the players perspective about the game was really strange. I always wonder what other players think about the game especially after they on state.

I really liked how this article was written using big words and asking the players what they thought. You can defiantly tell the difference from the our schools sports writer to a real life writer. I liked how they put the boys not so good moments to the best moments of the game. They also pieced this together so well I don't know how they did it. I hate writing so writing an article about something intense like this I don't know how I would do it.

Blog Relection

When I think back on my time blogging this trimester I think of one word, time consuming.  This was very time consuming on my part because I never got done in class and I never liked what I was writing. That caused me to delete past post and write a new one.  Also in the beginning I was so behind trying to create a blog and not knowing what I was doing. We got almost once a week to write a blog post and you have to make sure you have an idea of what to write about and that you have read. Sometimes that was my struggle not being prepared.  Towards the end of the trimester I got a hang of it. Now for the future I will be prepared.  One strength that I had throughout the trimester was getting into my blog post not just writing a short little post to get credit but really explain so that it make sense.

My best blog post I think so far is about The Cupcake Queen. In this post I have used a quote to explain my reasoning and description. Also I said that I haven't got into the book yet and I wrote about what I knew so far. Also I wrote about the character and when I get further into my book I will write about how she has changed or how she hasn't changed. Also I followed all the requirements on the rubric but I didn't go above and beyond.
For the next trimester my goal is to read 3 books and write very well developed blog post. I want to wow everyone from the first trimester to the second. I also want to be prepared and read extra. I don't like reading that much but I really want to start getting into it.

The Cupcake Queen

Hello blogger's! I just started a new book The Cupcake Queen by: Heather Helper. I was reading Uglies but I got bored of that book and didn't really like it. I asked one of my good friends and she gave me the idea to read this book. She told this book was really well written and thought I might enjoy it. So far I am really enjoying it, I can relate very easily and makes so much sense. 

 Penny's mom and her left Manhattan to open  a cupcake bakery in Hog's Hollow. The name of there bakery is The Cupcake Queen, it's not an average bakery its only cupcakes and all pink. Penny is a young teenager. Penny is not an average girly teenager, she hates the color pink and cupcakes. Penny has no one to talk to because she left her best friend; the only one who understands her."They're pink, I mean pink. Pink cupcake papers, pink cupcakes, pink frosting, pink sprinkles, and now pink rosebuds. It's like someone drank a whole bottle of Pepto-Bismol and then threw up in six dozen cupcakes."(Page 1) This quote shows that everything on this one cupcake is pink. Basically everything is pink.

This is all I have read so far in this book. I am hoping on finishing it soon so I can start a new one. Once I read some more I will make a post about it and what I think.
