Big News...

Hi, blog.

I've decided to make a "new" blog. I'll still be posting my posts here on this blog because, well, why not? Considering there's 1344 posts by now, I don't see why not. I just want a new start.

It won't start today, it'll start soon. Don't expect a lot to come out from it, it'll still be the same old things I'll be posting, but...

Yeah, it'll be the same things, but on a smaller scale.

The new blog is going to be the main blog.

2018...

Happy New Year.

2017 really was a better year. But not in blogging, so to speak.

I am sure and hopeful that 2018 will be a big improvement.

That's a good word. "Improvement".

Walking in a Forest...

Here's an old piece of writing from a few years back.

Rainbow Warrior (3 of 3) - 30 Years On...

Hi, there.

Here's another History assessment for you, reader.

Earlier in the year oh my, I need to stop saying that. It was probably between June and July that my Level One History class focused on the 1985 Bombing of the Rainbow Warrior. We had to look at the background events that led to the bombing and the consequences of the bombing.

This assessment was to take the research we had gathered (in the previous post) and put it into magazine article set 30 years after the bombing, along with little tidbits of information in some places, pictures, and a magazine cover at the front. Click the cover below to access my "article". Funny how it's set in 2015.

Those were the days...

Oh, I'm just putting this out there - it's a bit long. As usual.

Rainbow Warrior (2 of 3) - Resource Highlighting

The second installment in this Rainbow Warrior blogpost series. This is the first assessment from my History class, where I had to find sources that answered the three key questions (in previous post). All in all, it answers the three questions. It's a really long document (sounds surprising, I know). Click the screenshot to access it - and enjoy reading!

Rainbow Warrior (1 of 3) - Key Questions

Another piece from my History class. This will be the first of three posts relating to an assessment focused on the 1985 bombing of the Rainbow Warrior.

My History class delved into the background events that led up to the bombing (such as the Cold War and the effects of the Cold War - mainly nuclear energy and power) and the events that took place after the bombing (including the strain on New Zealand's relationship with France).

The first part will just show you the key questions I focused on for the research portion that will come sooner or later.

1) What were the causes of the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior?

2) What happened during the bombing?

3) What were the outcomes and consequences of the bombing?

Update!

Hi! 😀

I've got one more exam to get through (Level One History) and I'll be relaxing for the rest of the term.

I made a last minute decision to go to the Goat Island Marine Reserve. I had an amazing time there, watching everyone have fun snorkelling out in the water. I tripped towards the end of the day but that wasn't enough to turn my attention away from the lovely scenery and the bright atmosphere that surrounded me! I had a great time! Thought I would share that with you...

Also, last Friday I received my EC10 Diploma. I made a TIL about receiving my EC9 Diploma last year, and the EC10 Diploma is just like that, except more harder, i guess, because in my class' case (10E) some of the Year 10 assessments were replaced with Level One stuff. Anyway, my endorsement was a merit, but it changed to an excellence! And that means I'll be receiving my excellence endorsed diploma at the end of year junior prizegiving!

How cool is that?! My character's purpose has been fulfilled! I can finally come back to being a complete me now :)

But, yes, I'm having such a good time so far! I'm kinda waiting for the other shoe to drop, though, because whenever I experience a lot of good things in a short amount of time, it all turns badly just as quickly, you know? I'm not gonna let that thought take over me, though!

Thanks for reading!
