My Break With Games

In my spring break, I played Overwatch, PUBG, and Fortnite.I didn’t have a memorable gaming experience for other games, but those are some games that I played. Most of the time, I played Overwatch. In Overwatch, there is a ranked game. Everyone is competitive, and the players want to win. Although in my break, I didn’t meet a lot of players that lose the game on purpose. The game is 6 vs 6, but when there is a person that wants to throw the game(lose on purpose) it gets much harder than usual.

When I was playing, I won 7 times in a row. I was really happy that I made my highest score, but after I got matched by a troll(thrower), I lost 2 games in a row. Then I was winning once and losing once. That happened for 3 times. Basically, my score went higher than before I played, but it wasn’t my best score anymore.

Korean Death Cafe

Korean Death Cafe

This is a Korean Cafe,  which is in Gangnam, Seoul Korea, where the people who have no courage to live are visiting.

This programme was made for people who have the sadness inside to feel better about life by doing a fake funeral. The owner of the cafe says “The visitors came here with a sad face, but they  went out with a little smile on their face after this.”

They write the letter to important people in their lives before they die, which is all of their worries. After writing the letter, they would lie down in the coffin and feel their death.

This give people more courage and happiness to tell how sad is dying. It opens at 11 a.m. and closes at 6 p.m. This cafe is a sad place, but it will make people think better about their lives, which is the live that they are having now.

My Favorite Game CWS

My favorite game is Overwatch, and many people like that game too! Once I was playing competitive mode in Overwatch, and someone was just yelling out and staying bad things. I reported them , and I thought there were many kinds of people in the world. When I was playing other game mode, I just tried to relax and chill. Although I wasn’t mad, but there was a user that used hack! That was the first time I saw people using a game hack in Overwatch. I reported them.

When I first finished my competitive placement matches, I got the score of 1412, and it is bronze. I was shocked and I worked really hard, and I finally got to silver. I was bragging to my friends because he was also playing, and he was still bronze. After I went to silver, I went to gold. I bragged and I went to platinum, and I bragged. Finally, I went to diamond, that is about top 13 to 10%.

I think this game is the game I will remember for my life forever.

My goal was… I will write at least have 70 correct word sequences.

Cyberbullying Pharagraph

When the cyberbullying happens on the school grounds, schools should be responsible for punishing cyberbullies because some schools know the usage of the laptops of the students. Lucas Chen states, “Deb Socia, a principal at a middle school in Dorchester, Massachusetts, monitors activity and data on the laptops the school gives to students.” Schools should be a safe place for students to be educated. For example, when there’s cyberbullying happening at school and nobody knows what is happening, that is the worst thing that we could imagine. It is logical that when someone keeps track of the students, the situation will be better for students to get education. Because they will know what’s happening faster for the victim. They can possibly help or keep track of cyberbullying better. Therefore, knowing what is happening in school is a job of the principal. When there is cyberbullying happening at school, that is when the principal has to prevent that situation from affecting the education badly for the students. Cyberbullying shouldn’t be happening, but it should stop immediately when it happens.


Schools (should) be accountable for discipling cyberbullies when both the victim and bully is from the school, and see if they have any impact on the academic performance. One reason is that the victim can prove that the bully violated the victim if the victim’s performance in school is not as expected. To illustrate, some victims in the school need to take a screenshot the harassment to show evidence of the bully if needed. The cyberbullying might make a bad affect on the students. For example, the target might be distracted in the test time by the bully, so the victim’s grade might be impacted. As a result, once students or the target show the harassment message to the school, it’s 100% school’s responsibility to discipling the bullies so the performance of the students isn’t negatively affected.

  1. What new insights do you have into cyberbullying? What aspects of this problem do you know about now that you weren’t aware of before?

I didn’t know that some part of cyberbullying needed to be take cared by schools. I thought the cyberbullying was just a job of the messenger or a game company’s problem.

     2. What did try throughout the writing process? How did it help you be successful?

I tried to use different words in different sentences and conclusion. It helped me to not repeat the things that I said.

    3. What is your biggest take-away from our class discussions about this topic? Why?

I think the biggest takeaway was the word choices, because we got some academic words that fits into the topic. Because it is really useful. For example: School-ground, emotionally, physically and etc.

My Social Studies Minecraft Project

What are three new things I learned about geography & early human settlement?

  • I learned that how does the flood helps the farmer to plant vegetation.
  • I learned that there was a place called Canaan
  • I learned some new vocabulary words like ‘silt, vegetation, topography and flood(noun and verb)’

What are two things that I am proud of in my project?

I’m proud that I did my world in flat land, and made everything up by my self, and also my editing skill.

What is one thing I would do differently if I were to do this project again?

I would make my video shorter, so anyone can watch it fast and easy.

Proposal

Our topic is ‘Standing Desk that Generates Electricity from Kinetic Energy by Swing’. It’s basically higher desk that is adjustable height, and swing underneath that you can swing, that can generates electricity. I’m interested of this topic, because this was new. I’ve never saw any, and I didn’t think of this idea, but I got what is it. I researched, but there’s not we are finding. We want to make a tall desk, but there’s only ideas like coffee table on the desk, so it’s higher. Now, I’m finding how can we make energy by swinging, and how much does a desk coast. I’m using MISO like a check list that we should complete everything, so we can be perfect.

Cát Tiên National Park

Moon Bear Center

We went to moon bear center on day 2, and it was the most interesting part in Cát Tiên. We didn’t cross the river, we just walked there by the path. First, we hide the food for them, like watermelon, guava, banana, and taro and pear looking fruit. We all put at least one scoop of peanut butter. We hid food on the tree, the barrel that can roll, big top for bears, and under the tree. Another group different than mine made bamboo food that they need to open it to eat banana leaves and others, Catherine and I put extra fruits for them. Moon bear center was the place with most scorpions. When we are going up the specter’s place, there was still many scorpions so we couldn’t get up the stairs, after few minutes, we could get up. Some moon bears were going up the big top, some were walking around for fruits on the trees, some were spinning the barrels, and some were trying to open the bamboo. Interesting behavior of the bears with bamboo was they were rolling the bamboo, hitting it, and put his tongue in the hole of the bamboo. One opened it by using their paw holding with one hand and taking out with another, it was really interesting. Another one was still using his hand for rolling it, so it was different with another bear. They both got their food after some time, so they actually were smart. Other bears spin the barrel and got their food, other bears went up the big top and got their peanut butter, but the interesting thing was they were going down backward like humans, we all thought that they will go straight like other animals, but they didn’t.

Unexpected Moments

I wasn’t expecting that there would be night safari, and it will be cold there, we saw many animals(almost all were baby sambar deer). I never saw cotton hopper before, but I saw them in Cát Tiên, and scorpions, I didn’t know that here were some scorpions that small, but I saw it there. My favorite moment was when we were roasting marshmallows because it was a new experience for me, and it tasted good!

Cát Tiên As Sustainability?

Remember that we are using it by a case study, that how Cát Tiên can connect with our topic!

Close Reading Reflection

Describe what Close Reading is.

Close reading is deep reading that is thoughtful and critical reading.

Did you actually read the text 3 times?

The last task was when you are riding it in 3rd time, you can answer these questions, so we read 3 times, but each time it was for different reason.

Did you read the text again before filling out the 3 sections, or did you look at #2 and #3 and just try to answer them without rereading the entire text?

I read 1 more time before I start the page, but I got help from the second section.

What is a Main Idea?  Can you give an example in your explanation?

Ecosystem was the huge main idea of it, and it means all the living things and non-living things in that area. Example:Ecosystem of this river has many fish and rocks with fresh water! All the living things and non-living things are nice. This is the best ecosystem I saw! 

How can Close Reading help you, think about heading to middle school and high school!

Close reading helps you to concentrate, and think deeper, and I think close reading in meddle school to high school, it’s going to be really helpful.

Green Dragons : Sustainability Practices

Today, we started a new unit called the ‘Green Dragons’. We were learning, and understanding word sustain and sustainability. Meanings of the sustain are protect, save, take care, have to, survive, help, and some more. Sustainability is keep going and maintaining. I wonder if this unit, we help the keep goes world maintaining, and can we help it, or not, and how can we purpose it to the head of the school? I’m thinking that we can help it by trashing less, get food as much as you can eat, and rather get a bag then a plastic bag. The unit connects me to know green, the nature, and dragons are us, so we can sustainable.

Innovate

We are innovating the “Easy Curtain Up” with little bits. It makes turning the curtain up easily. We figured out our problem first, then we prepared the project. Our problem was electricity was wasted when outside is bright, so we got idea of the “Easy Curtain Up”

We are thinking we connect 2 strings with pulley, and when the slide dimmer was put on the left side, the pulley works left, and it will go up, we are preferring to go with the middle, and down. It would be like it when the slide dimmer is on middle and down. We made pulley with moter.
