SBC 2019 Week 8/Reflection

Hey everyone! Drawing Addict here back again(guess who’s back, back again, shadys back). I am here with my week 8 post of the Student Blogging Challenge(SBC)! I know you’re excited(not) to see what this week’s post is about! This week’s post is really just a reflection of the SBC and all of that stuff. 

I have published 11 posts in total during these 8 weeks and I am so happy with all of the comments I have been getting on them. In fact, I even got a comment from a Tech Integrator! Some of my friends and teachers have also commented on my blog! I think the best post I have written is my Week Four post mainly because of the drawing I made and the story with it. In my opinion, that is one of my best drawings which is no small accomplishment because I have so many sketchbooks filled with drawings.

Blogging has changed my life for the better because of how much it has taught me. It has been so much fun and has helped me improve in my writing. I think I am going to blog for myself(plus maybe something to do with my name…) and not just for school. If you guys are interested in seeing that when it comes out, I will make a post about it. Thank you all for reading my posts and commenting! I am glad everyone enjoys my posts and I hope you will continue to enjoy them in the future!

SBC 2019 Week Five/Music

Hey everyone! Drawing Addict is back again with ANOTHER post and I know you are excited(I’m joking, you’re probably not) to see this week’s challenge! Here’s a wrap-up of last week; it was week four of the SBC and it was basically freestyle writing. Last week, I decided to use a writing prompt to make a short story(I also made a drawing for it and you know why.) Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to submit the link of my blog post into the google form, so I have to make up for it this week by getting this assignment over with. This week’s challenge was about music and there was a variety of options to choose from for it. You could make your own music, make a quiz about music, review music, write about an instrument, write about music and its downsides, and even making a playlist of music that you like. In this case, I wanted to be creative, so I made my own song(which, in my opinion, is really bad and too short[I don’t want to do it over again].)

 I decided to write a song about my Communications class and how amazing it is. Note that I am not a good singer and I am even worse at songwriting(so please don’t tell me how bad my song is.) My song is currently only made up of lyrics, but I will put in some ukulele in the background later to improve it. I hope you enjoy the song and I hope you like my drawing for this week(drawing the cover of the song.) I would also like to mention one more thing before I put the song. I don’t know how many times I have said this, but, once again, make sure you check out my classmates’ blogs(they are very amazing and innovative people that deserve recognition for their blogs/work!) The song will be down below along with some background information talking about how I struggled to make the song. 

 

While I was writing this song, I found myself struggling. I know I had chosen to make music, but it was harder than I thought. I always have catchy songs stuck in my head and it keeps me from making my own music because I am automatically putting those songs into my song. I also had no idea what to use for lyrics for the song so I had to write some good things about Communications and sing the words. It also does not help that I am really terrible at singing(at least, I think so. Other people tell me that my singing voice is better than average or is good[I don’t believe them though].) I was also using SoundTrap to make the music, but the thing is, is that SoundTrap is completely new to me. I have never used SoundTrap before this, so I did struggle with how to manage and work it. I managed to pull through though and I am happy that I am finally done with it. I hope you all liked this post and enjoyed this week’s challenge. That’s all for this week! Drawing Addict out~

P.S I will put in the drawing and background music in the song later~

P.P.S I just put in the background music in the song and I may have redid some recordings to make it sound better~

SBC 2019 Week Three Challenge/Fun With Photos

Hello everyone! This may seem a little early, but Drawing Addict is back again with another post! In this case, yes, it’s true, it’s Week Three of the Student Blogging Challenge! For this week’s challenge, we were assigned the job to do one of three things. 1. Take a photo of something in your surroundings. 2. Draw something and take a photo of it. 3. Use “Photos for Class” to find an image. Each one of my classmates chose one to do for the challenge. I just so happened to decide on doing a drawing(honestly, if you don’t know why, I am not even going to try to explain). If anyone is confused, you can just take a picture of a drawing you made a while ago, it does not have to be recent. I inserted a drawing of the Sorting Hat that I made sometime in September. The assignment stated that after we have an image, we had to put on a google doc and either write a story starter for it or write a poem. I, being the writer I am, decided to write a story starter. Obviously, it was about the Sorting Ceremony. If you really want to see the drawing and the story, it’ll be below for you to survey.

So this is my drawing of the Sorting Hat. It is not the best, but it was definitely something since I only worked on this drawing for about 5 minutes. Imagine if I did one of those things on youtube that are like drawings in 5 minutes vs drawings in 5 hours. I would probably do worse on the longer one than the shorter one. Anyway, the story starter is down below.

As the Sorting Hat sat rigidly on the round, rusty, old stool, the First Years finally arrived in the Great Hall. As name after name was called, the sorting hat was growing more and more exhausted. Finally, after waiting for about 20 minutes, the final student was called. “Talinian, Aidan!” From the crowd, came a young boy, whose eyes were darting around nervously as the whispers grew louder. The boy walked over to the stool, his whole body stiff from anxiety. The young boy gently set himself on the rough, splintered stool. ‘Well, well, well, what do we have here? Such a great mind, ambitious for sure… and.. Very loyal, I see…. Slytherin would help you find your destiny… but, Hufflepuff is just as promising….’ 

’Just put me in Hufflepuff.’ The boy thought to the hat, desperate. The boy held his breath as the Sorting Hat made its final decision. ‘Hmmm…. Better be…. SLYTHERPUFF!’ The Sorting Hat yelled, his voice echoing across the Great Hall. Silence filled the room, no one moved until at last, Headmaster Dumbledore stood up from his seat and trekked towards the nervous boy. He rested a hand on the boys shoulder as he spoke calmly, “It seems you are different. Don’t you worry, my boy. You will have a different set of Hogwarts’ robes. Do you know what this means? It means you are the bridge between Hufflepuff and Slytherin, you can help unify these two houses.” The young boy trembled as he stood up abruptly on his wobbly legs. He slowly trotted over to the Hufflepuff table and sat down at the end, away from all the others.

That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed my post and have a good week! Drawing Addict out~

My Spidey Avatar

Drawing Addict is back with another post and an announcement! Week one of the Student Blogging Challenge is upon us! Up above is my spider-tacular Web Warrior, the coolest spider human in the world(just kidding, not really). My spidey senses are tingling, is yours? That’s right, if you haven’t guessed, my favorite color is purple. My favorite shade of purple happens to be lavender. As you can see, my Avatar has brown hair since it is obviously based off of me. I created this Web Warrior because I absolutely adore the different spideys, for example the Peter Parkers’, Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, Peni Parker, Spider-Man Noir, and Spider-Ham. From my interests in the spideys, you should assume correctly that I am a huge Marvel fan. I have watched all of the movies created by Marvel and I absolutely love them! I am fanatic for Marvel, so please don’t ask me what my favorite is, since I love all of them(even Endgame and Infinity War, no matter how much it breaks my heart). I’d like to think that this avatar represents me the best, but I’m sure there are other avatars I could have made that would do better. I genuinely adore this avatar, whether the fact that it’s purple, or the fact that it is a spider human. Do avatars interest you? You can pop in to the slideshow below with all of the avatars made by my classmates! I am super excited for the Student Blogging Challenge! I can’t wait to see what is in store for me! You can take a look at the slideshow below to see a few other ideas on avatars for some inspiration for yours. If you want to make your own, I even put in a hyperlink on my slide that leads straight to some games. Enjoy!

Alphabet Aerobics(its actually a song)

This is my A-Z post! The randomest things about me: I absolutely love using Bitmoji for my character! I change the outfit of my character every now and then to make it match my outfit that I’m wearing for the day. Did you know that I sewed little Dementors for my birthday party this year? It’s going to be grand! I am planning to invite 20 of my friends because my stepmom didn’t allow me to invite more since I have too much friends! My birthday party is going to be the best thing ever! At least, the best birthday party that I will ever have. Every year, my birthday party is themed differently and it’s kind of a tradition for my family. My birthday party this year is going to be Harry Potter themed since I am a huge Potterhead! I am also inviting people to dress up as a Hogwarts student or as a character (if they want to) for my birthday party! 

Since it is sort of a costume party, I am going to dress up as Hermione Granger for it. My sister is going as Harry Potter since she has short hair and she is going to dye it black. Also, my brother is going to go as Ronald Weasley since he has orange hair and blue eyes. He is perfect for the role. I usually dress up as Hermione Granger each year since I feel connected with her and we are so much alike. Here’s something else about me. I desperately wanted to audition for Belle this year in Beauty and The Beast but I didn’t have the time to audition and stay after school for rehearsals. I feel like I would connect with Belle too since she is a huge bookworm like me. I just feel like I would be perfect for her role, although she wears dresses and I don’t. 

Fact about me: I don’t wear dresses unless it’s a special occasion, same goes with makeup unless it’s stage makeup. Many people do not like school that much, but I happen to be what my sister would call, a “goody-two-shoes”, since I am so jubilant for school each year! I usually get good grades and I love all my classes (except for the fact P.E is my least favorite)! I absolutely love reading and learning new curriculum each year, I just love absorbing knowledge! This is why some people think I’m weird, because I like to learn and I actually enjoy school. 

I love music, I already told you this fact but now here’s another one. I will practically listen to anything and I happen to be a world champion in memorizing lyrics in only a few days after listening to it. I already mentioned this but I am really loud in school, but I don’t need to be quiet to get good grades.

This reminds me of something my Civics teacher said. “You write just as much as you talk.” I don’t remember her exact words, but it was close to that. We had been working on the quiz for Fundamental Principals. I believe, but I don’t remember exactly, and we were doing it on paper copies. There were short answer questions and I answered them with a lot of words, so my teacher had pointed it out to me. She knew I talked a lot since I’m really loud and she can hear me from across the room and so she mentioned how my writing amount is exactly the same amount of words I speak. That cracked me up, I knew it was true too, so I couldn’t argue against it. That is something weird but unique about me. In fact, for all I know, my other teachers could possibly(*cough*) be annoyed at the volume of my voice during class(especially drama). 

Storytime! There was a time where I was mistaken for a boy and honestly, I get it. I was somewhere around, I don’t remember exactly, but I was young. I went to a school that required uniforms at that time. The uniform consisted of khaki shorts and a short sleeve shirt. Now, before I forget to mention, I had short hair, like a boy cut. We had come out of school and we had gone to eat, so we went to a pizza place nearby. We walked in, ordered our food, and sat in the booth, waiting for the food to arrive. 

I suddenly needed to use the bathroom, so I got up from the booth and walked to the girls’ restroom. Before I had fully entered the bathroom, I heard a boy say something behind me. I turned around and heard faintly, “Mom, look at that boy. He’s entering the girls’ bathroom!” I saw a little boy, around the age I was at the time. He and his mother were in the booth next to ours and he was pointing straight at me and telling his mother about me. He honestly thought I was a guy. This happened years ago, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. When I think about it now, it cracks me up, I realized that I have a neutral face, I can look like a girl or a boy.

Thanks for reading this (weird)A-Z post! Don’t forget to check out my classmates’ spectacular blogs, my classmates are very xenodochial! Yeah I think I’m done, zero more letters to go!

All about Nadia!

Hello! My name is Nadia and here is 10 facts about me!

  1. I absolutely adore cooking! My signature dish(that I love cooking so much) is Black Bean Tamale Pie(its not actually a tamale{just the ingredients}). When I found this recipe for the first time, I was just scrolling through the internet and I kind of connected with it.
  2. A few months ago(Is that right? I don’t remember), I started delving into sewing,  in example, I have sewn little dementors with black felt and stuffing to hang around the room.
  3. Here’s something weird about me: Whenever I go shopping, I always feel like I need to get someone(my friends or family) something special and if I can’t, I always feel bad.
  4. I’m almost always social, happy, and energetic during the whole day(including during the night), no matter what problems I have to face.
  5. I am a huge fan of the arts, of the bunch, I especially enjoy(and love) reading, writing, acting, and drawing, whether it be digital or not, I also enjoy singing(but lets face it, I’m pretty bad).
  6. I am a person who goes with flow (when it comes songs) and will listen to any kind of music out there, no matter if it is rap, country, K-Pop, etc.
  7. Something different about me: Sometimes I project my voice without realizing, mainly because of the fact that I had an ear infection(somewhere around 6th grade{I don’t remember exactly})which permanently damaged my hearing in my left ear.
  8. My two all-time loveable(not favorites simply because I don’t have any{all the books are too good})book series are Percy Jackson and Harry Potter, they inspire me to be a better author and a better friend, if I had to choose a third, I believe Lord Of The Rings would fit that category.
  9. When it comes to(exotic type mammals{sorry I love Aladdin}) peoples feelings, I try to emit positive feelings and thoughts in a way that others will understand since I am a huge optimist(if you didn’t get that from #4) and I don’t like when people are being pessimistic, which ends up in me trying to cheer them up.
  10. I am a child of three children, I happen to be the youngest of the bunch(which has its perks, but also has a downside) and I have an older brother and sister.
