New Beginnings

Now that I am starting high school soon and I haven’t blogged in a while, I am going to re-design my blog and start blogging again.  I can’t wait to continue my blogging.  Keep tuning in for updates! Thanks!

Swim Divisionals

Every year, swimmers from all around the state of Indiana have a chance to qualify for a divisional cut.  If you qualify, you get to go to the Divisional competition, which is held in March.  Divisionals start today, and go all the way to Sunday.  I am very excited to be participating in this meet, alongside my teammates.  We all hope to come home with some accomplishments, PR times, and ribbons. 🙂  Good luck swimmers!

Slide

Slide is a new website that I found and I really am impressed with the media and the cool features that they have on there.  One of the features is the ability to make awesome frames for Youtube videos.  I hope that you get the opportunity to check this out! Well, that’s it for today!
Happy Blogging!

Colorado

My family just got back from a vacation to Colorado on Saturday.  We got to do lots of fun things such as biking, hiking, whitewater rafting, alpine sliding, and fly fishing.  I really loved the amazing scenery and weather in Colorado, and I would definitely go back and recommend it to a friend.  Have you taken any fun or exciting vacations this summer?  Leave a comment and tell me all about them!

Have you ever…

Lately, I have been a fairly busy person, and the amount of News feeds of my Google Reader seem to add up to about 175 a day.  I just don’t have time to read all of these News.  As weird as it may seem, I actually feel guilty about the fact that I just don’t have the time to read all 175 of these feeds, so I constantly find myself guilty of pressing the “Mark All As Read” button. . .

I just feel like, in some way, that is kind of cheating.  Oh well.  I must move on.

Happy Blogging!

Laptop Education

Thinking about the past two years of my education, I have had a laptop by my side.  When used correctly, laptops can be an amazing tool for education, but when used incorrectly, laptops can become a distraction.  That is why I feel that it is important to help your kids know how to use those extra educational uses, which becomes an alternative to video games.  This is why I felt that it was important to put something else that is a bit more descriptive in the way that it helps teachers, educators, and students to use technology for education.  Laptop Education is a wiki that is very helpful to educators.  Feel free to visit, look around, leave a comment, or request membership and add your own insights.  Thanks!
