I’m A Slightly Better Photographer With A Good Camera

Hi everyone!

As will be demonstrated in the images below, my photography skills have ever-so-slightly improved. I think the photo I am most proud of would have to be the close-up of the grass at the park. As the greenery stretches out behind the blades of grass, they become more and more unrecognizable, melting into each other, while the original blades stand out in the front.

June

Happy June everyone!

June is a happy and sad time for a lot of people. It means that school is letting out, and in grades like 5th, 8th and 12th, it means saying goodbye to your friends as you will be moving onto Middle School, High School or College.

That being said I want to thank the members of my 6th Grade class for a truly memorable year. Especially Aidan, Giacomo, and Oscar, who will be changing schools next year.

People born in June are usually extroverts, and enjoy being around lots of people. The June birthstone is pearl, which symbolizes cheerfulness and inner beauty. I have to disagree though–I believe everyone has both inner and outer beauty, not just people born in June (nothing against people born in June. You’re beautiful too😉)

You’ll notice this post is colored with the rainbow. This is because June is Pride Month! Yipee!! (*insert a bazillion rainbow flag emojis*).

Have a great month everyone, and I’ll be sure to post more.

March

Happy March everyone!

The March birthstone is aquamarine, a turquoise colored stone. This gemstone was believed to protect sailors, and promise a safe voyage. People born in March are known to be close to nature but have a fiery temper.

They have a unique gift to give the world, and they are loved by their friends. They hardly ever resort to violence, unless their temper gets the best of them.

March is also Women’s History Month, so make sure that you celebrate all the amazing women that are and were, and thank them for all that they do.

Have a great month!

Love,

Kiran

Day 3: Tarpon Lodge and LEGOS

Hey, all!

Sorry I didn’t post last night. We got home from dinner at about 10:30 and I was exhausted, so I didn’t post my draft that I had already written. There was a power outage this morning so I couldn’t post it then.

Just so I don’t confuse you, I’m setting the publishing date to yesterday so you don’t get confused. What that means, is that it will display that it was published yesterday, even though it wasn’t.

Yesterday I got out my LEGOS from the closet and played with them. It is a set called Monster Fighters, where you get sets of different locations (example: laboratory) and you get some monsters (example: Dr. Frankenstein and his monster) and some Monster Fighters, who try to attack the monsters. So far I have The Crazy Scientist And His Monster, The Mummy, The Werewolf and The Swamp Monster. I hope to get the vampire set soon.
