We went to a assembly today to see dancers and drummers. They were African and they are really into their culture. The dancing they did was very different from the dances we see today. They talked about the things in there tridition and what those things mean to there tridition. It had a lot of energy and a lot of movement. It takes a lot of pratice to learn those dances.

The Dancers were really kicking their legs high and doing these super flips and twists. I was blown away! The dancers even asked kids if they would like to go up there and dance. A friend of mine was up there killing it! She started crumping and great many other moves. I was going to go up but I got nervous.

I was very entertained by everything, even the two guys that were dancing. Ms. Mckeone, my teacher, was one of the participints in the show. The dancers called some teachers in the crowd and Ms. Mckeone. They were cheering for Ms. Mckeone. She was pulled up on the stage by the dancers manager.

The dancers showed what the they had to do. Everybody up there was killing it but mostly Ms. Mckeone. The dancers helped the teachers throughout the whole performance. I couldn't  believe my eyes when I saw all of the teachers up there! The dancers were incredible and I will be like them someday.

Complete Sentences: Misunderstanding

I remember when Antwain and I argued on the phone. I only called him once that day and he just took it as a misunderstanding. We were good friends for a while and then we started to get complacated. Him and I say hi and just leave it from there. He's still funny and some ways always fooling around in the altertorium just being funny and silly. He just does his own thing now. He's working hard to be a basketball player. He's really good at it. I love him that's my buddy.

She would go into wars with her people to protect her kingdom. She was a women with amazing beauty. She was the last of the Pharoahs. She was taking captive by an evil king. So she dicides to kill herself so she wouldn't experience the cruel things that the evil king had instore for her. Nobody knows where Cleopatra's body is today and scientists are still looking.

Something I'm Good At

 I'm good at dancing. I dance all the time and I never stop. I know how to do dances that you see in R&B and Pop videos.  My dancing is fun, entertaining, exotic and hardcore. I try to make up dance routines to Hip Hop, Pop, and R&B songs when I'm at home. I have a favorite dance team and they are called the Fly Kicks. Their style of dancing is crumping. Their clothing style is colorful, bad, hot and sassy. They were in the ''America's Best Dance Crew'' in 2009. They lost! I will keep on dancing and never stop. Dancing is one of my most favorite thing that I am good at.

My Resolution

For all of you bloggers out there I just want you to know this one thing. Choose your friends wisely and also keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Friends are people that love you and stick by you no matter what. Enemies are people that try to use you for your money, clothes, secrets, and personal information. Last year, I was friends with the wrong people. I had friends that pretended to like me for who I am but really don't. People just don't know how to act when there in here. I got laughed at today by my own friend. I did ignore the problem which I'm proud of myself for. When Mr. Williams had harassed me today I laughed at him because he was making himself look like a fool in front of everybody. When he started talking smack out of his mouth I kind of felt special because he was saying stuff towards me but it doesn't change how I feel about the school. Right now I just don't want to be bothered by anybody. All I want to do is go home and listen to my music and forget about what happen today because my heart is in pieces right now. It is what it is and I can't change the world. I will not stop working hard in school. I have lots of other friends that I know from middle school and that I'm really close with and know very well. Ms. Mckeone and Ms. Evans always teach me life lessons when there's a problem for me in school. I will just remember the things they tell me.  Today, tomorrow and after I leave high school. I'm not afraid to be who I am. I will be selling my own CD at the places where the Grocery stores are. A man was selling his own Gospel Rap CD and when I saw him selling it to the people I was thinking maybe I can do something like that one day. I am going to work hard and stay in school. Last year was old news and I'm over it and this year will be better. I'm doing well on my vocabulary testing and the quizes but I have to catch up on them. I will stay in my happy place. I know I'll be alright. I will keep working harder and harder. This years resolution for me is to ignore those who are mean towards me. I'm better than that.

What I learned in Dialogue

I learned that dialogue is not something you see on TV. Dialogue is around us. People have conversations all the time. I hate when someone interrupts my conversation. It's wrong, rude, and it makes me mad. I will make sure the conversation is appropriate for school.  I won't let people who try to affend me get into my mind. I will ignore them because they just want a response out of me and it's not happening.

Dialogue Comic

I made a comic with me and Ms. Evans. We were talking about her cat which was a very appropriate topic to talk about. While we were talking about her, Ms. Mckeone rudly interuppted us while we were tallking. She said she was sorry about it. Talking to Ms. Evans reminded me of a dialogue which is two people having a conversation. I said one thing to her and she gave me a response back to me.

My Big Goal

My big goal is to make this video of my life story. I want people to know how I feel. I don't want people to feel bad for me I just want people to understand and know that ''This is what I've been through,'' ''This is my whole life,'' and ''This is who I am as a person." I want to show this project to the whole school. Maybe they will understand what a homosexials life is like. I want   people to not be so homophobic and judgmental; I really don't like that. Homosexials are people to there just different. That is the goal that I want to achieve. 

I think all people need respect and loyalty. That is why I want to do this video. It's OK to not like someone but to judge them and talk about behind their back is wrong. I can't change how people feel about other people so it's not my fault it's theirs. I'm going to bring some pictures of me when I was little so I can take a picture of them on ''Comic Strip.'' I asked my grandmom about the video and she still has it in her room. I want all of my friends in and out of the classroom to be in the video just talking about what it's like having me as a friend and just saying good stuff about me. I want to talk about my talents and I need to figure out a way to make this video short because there's a lot of things I want put in this video. I want songs on the video maybe about 5 or 6 song playing in the backround. I want to talk about my love life for the last thing.
