I got my report card for this term and here is a list of things I will definitely try my best to improve my mark in term number two :
Language : For Language I will write more detailed and descriptive work , along with expanding my vocabulary .
French : In French class I will work on recognizing more words from the play “ Louis La Grenouille ” while also trying my best to say those words out loud . Another thing I will work on is taking more care for the classroom work .
Social Studies : For Social Studies I will take notes more often and research more about the first peoples like the Haudenosaunee and the Algonquian peoples .
Physical Education ( P . E . ) : I will use more effort in the sports we play such as basketball and soccer . I will also focus more when I am playing dodge ball by not looking at the wall and looking at the actual players .
Music : I will try my best to beat the drum at the exact time required and at no other time except when the teacher allows it .
All in all I will do my homework better , hand them in on time and also work on my organizational skills.
Today I reset the timeline for A Kittens game . Now you may be wondering what a kittens game is so here is a short explanation .
A Kittens Game is a clicker idle game by BLOODRIZER where you start by gathering catnip and slowly you get unicorns , alicorns and a space program ( The cats can go to space! ) .
Today I reset my kittens after 9193 game years . That looks like a lot but lets do the math , each game day is 2 seconds and there are 400 game days in a game year so 1000 game years is 9 human days therefore 9000 game years is 81 human days .
The reason that I want to reset in this game is that if I reset I get a bonus to production proportional to the number of kittens I had before my reset .
The screenshot below is what I got before I reset the game.
Another element in the game is research . When I get a number of science points I can spend them to give me upgrades that boost my production , increase my storage of materials or to unlock new aspects in the game . There is also trading in the game which means that I can trade my resources to some special creatures such as dragons and Griffins for more precious resources.
In my opinion this game deserves a six stars rating out of five .
All of the libraries I visited on my 2017 road trip
The above link is to a PPT presentation about the libraries I went to on my road trip.
As some of you know,I am moving back to Ottawa in 2 days.Why do I say back you wonder?Well it’s because I was born in Ottawa so I’m going back to my birthplace.
I will keep you posted every day for my trip here.
Yesterday I finished Byte camp 2d video game design .The camp was 1 week long and each day had 6 hours of learning.One funny thing was that on the last day 2 teenage volunteers found out that I was going to Burnaby mountain secondary and even asked me about the head of math department there Mrs.Morrison.Every day there were 3 breaks whwere we played outdoor games.On the first day we learned how to make a simple dodge game where evil flowers fall from the sky and you have to dodge them.On the second day we did a platformer where you get Jake the dog to the end of a level.On the last 3 days we each made our own games mine was a cat platformer:
the green and brown block is ground,the – is no jump and the + is bounce
One of the best tings about this camp is that the teachers are nice and help us with our individual problems instead of as a group.The teachers also taught us new ways of debugging like using ctrl+shift+i to check for any bugs and looking at possible missing semicolons.Overall this camp has been w=very fun and if I could go again I definitely would!
This morning was the last part of summer school.This summer I enrolled in Pre-calculus 12.The course was 5.5 weeks long and had 10 tests(around 1 test every 2 or 3 days).In the total for my tests I got 92% which means that I got an A for the first part.Then in the final exam I got 100% which raised my total score to 93%.
I think my teacher Ms.Paterson is very good at explaining what each and every concept means.For example when she explained to the class what factorial notation is.Also when I am done the assignments for the day she lets me go to the library to read.
The library is one of my favourite places in the high school.One of the reasons why I like the library so much is that it allows me to wind down and relax after some studying.It is also a place for me to learn new things and read interesting science books like “How things work now”.
Overall this summer was AWESOME!
