Steve Jobs is Dead:
A few days ago, my friend and I were studying in the hallway outside. Beside us, were a group of boys studying. Somehow, we all ended up getting into a discusion about Apple and Microsoft. One of the boys argued against Apple, saying, "Ever since Steve Jobs died, the Apple company isn't making realistic products."
"WHAT? STEVE JOBS IS DEAD!" I yelled.
"Yeah, you didn't know?" said the boy, snickering. "
"When did he die?"
"What? Four years ago!"
" Yes, (insert my name), six years ago. You need to stop reading those books and realize what's happening in the real world!"
No thank you..I'd prefer to stay with my books. But, I really have to start paying attention to current events! I thought that Steve Jobs was alive and thriving (or is it alive and kicking..I never know!). Now, I know the saddening news.
In this last quarter of the school year, in my class we're doing a state project along with a report. At the beginning of the quarter, I decided on the state, Maine. The state project is actually a bunch of mini projects all molded together. Only three mini projects are required, but that gets you a grade, C. So, I'm doing all the mini projects to get more points than an A+ and an extra mini project that I made up myself. I was actually working on my made up mini project this morning. I decided to make a test on Maine, and write an answer key (it takes a lot of work..I understand teacher troubles, now..). I had ten multiple choice questions, 5 fill in the blanks, and 3 open- ended questions. Since it seemed like you guys enjoyed the trivia quiz that I made a while ago, I made another one, this time about Maine. The quiz includes the ten multiple choice questions from my project.

My birthday occured recently. I'm eleven now! I had a lot of fun, and I was so touched by all the cards I got from my friends.

Remember that post I did a while ago about New Years Resolutions? In that post, I mentioned that I loved the book, "The Clay Lion." Apparently, the author of "The Clay Lion" read that post, and she posted something on twitter regarding it! It's such an honor that the author of that book saw that post, and that she tweeted about it! Click here to see it!
Toodles! Have a nice day!- Jollygirl
