Where to spend a holiday..

Now I know my favorite holiday is Christmas but there is no way I would go vacationing around Christmas. Christmas is a time to be home and spent with your family, and besides, if I'm going vacationing I am not going some where it's cold. That's another reason why I wouldn't go vacationing around Christmas, because it just wouldn't be the same without snow! Hmm, so I guess my next favorite holiday would have to be the 4th of July. Where would I go? I have some cousins that live in Colorado and they tell us how amazing the firework show is down there with the mountains and such. So I would have to say I would like to go to Colorado Springs for the 4th of July.

My FAVORITE Holiday!!

CHRISTMAS! My favorite holiday is Christmas, and not because of all the presents, but of course that is a plus =). I LOVE Christmas because I'm spending it with all of my family. I just love the traditions and parties and food! We have a handfull of traditions and just perks about Christmas and even winter itself, some little and some huge, and my favorite ones are going Christmas tree hunting with all my aunts and uncles and my grandma and grandpa, my family decorating the tree together, the overplayed Christmas music, ice fishing, snowman making, snowball fights and making forts, and of course the cheesy movies we sit down as a family together and watch like The Grinch. All of it is so exciting and probably the best part of Christmas is that there is no way you can be sad or depressed. Every one is always in a cheerful mood and so happy and just plain having fun!

It's a FANTASY! Use your Imagination =)

If you could have ONE day..Devoted entirely to whatever you desire..What would it be? Your own holiday. Me? Well I would have a day of me of course. Everyone celebrates me! Selfish? Yeah, maybe. Now I know what your thinking, don't you pretty much have that every year on your birthday? I guess, but this day is not going to be with just my family and friends. It's going to be national! There's going to be no school and no work what-so-ever on "My Day" because, c'mon, no time for that stuff when were celebrating me! There will be cheeseburgers for breakfast and candy for lunch. Presents for everyone, especially me! Movies and popcorn at the movies half price, but of course I'll get in free. That's what I would do if I could make my own holiday. What would you do?

MY Main Concern..

**As a part of the student blogging challenge, I wrote a post for BAD 2009 on the topic of climate change.

Global Warming. Or should I say Global Climate Change. What is is? That would be my main concern. There's a catch though. Of course, I'm different then most, and you won't see me freaking and spazing out about our climate. Personally, I think it's a loud of CRAP! I'm sick of the news media and school saying how we need to change. Yes, we can stop polluting, yes, we can use more energy efficient technology, but we are taking such extream, rediculous precautions for something that is just cycling through our climate!!

According to (What's in a Name? Blobal Warming vs. Climate Change) To scientists Global Warming describes the greenhouse effect. Many scientist thought that humans could alter the climate. Yes, but what they didn't know is how. Either airborne particles (aerosols) would cause the climate to get cooler, or the greenhouse effect would cause warming. It all depended on what is more dominate. Now the consequences of the widescale changes right now being observed in Earth's climate system could be considerable. So why do we change the name Global Warming to Global Climate Change? The answer would be because Global Warming is not technically right. So what is Global Climate Change? To me the very vauge name given to explain currently what is happening to our climate is just pathetic. Global Climate change? Doesn't that pretty much describe any change in our climate what so ever? So technically any kind of change, whether its warmer or cooler, in our climate is "Global Climate Change."

The green house effect..Is our climate actually CURRENTLY getting warmer because of it? According to (Greenhouse Earth) Yes, but remember that the greenhouse effect is actually good too. Without it we would completely freeze and die.

Polar Bears..Are they dying and going extinct? NOO!!! Polar bears have produced RECORD LEVELS of their population. Populations are BOOMING! 5 TIMES as many polar bears today compared to 50 years ago! So why do we hear that they are dying? Are they on the endangered list?? Yes. Yes polar bears on the endangered list. The endangered list is a joke. Polar bears AREN'T on the endangered list BECAUSE they're endangered. They're on the list because 2 OUT OF 13 locations of main polar bear populations have in fact decreased. ONLY 2 OUT OF 13!!!! ALL the other locations have INCREASED, not only by a couple of bears, but by about 15 - 20,000 in each location! So tell me, HOW can polar bears be endangered, close to extinction, if they are BOOMING??

Global Warming. Global Climate Change. Whatever you want to call it, none of which is fact. They're theories, correlations. I am not denying the fact that our earth currently is warming. It's the climate! We aren't going to have the same tempature every year. Things are going to change. Be different. Now all the hype about this is getting annoying! So tell me. Are these the same scientists that said we would have a third ice age?? Are these the same scientists that said if we went outisde while it was raining our skin would melt from the acid rain?? Are these the same scientists that said the o-zone layer would be completly gone within so many years. Scientists have been wrong before. And they are wrong again!

Here are five pictures to explain my summer.
Donut - I work about 20 hours a week in a bakery
Pool - I'm on the swim team and have practice everyday
Paint Brushes - I love to paint and draw on my spare time
Farm - When ever I can go to my grandpa's I go and like to ride four wheeler
Computer Mouse - I spend a lot of time on the computer and talking to friends
*All pictures were from Morgue File

Hmm, Cows!

Cows. Not my favorite animal but when I see them I think back to when I was younger. I practically grew up on my grandpa's farm and I wouldn't have it any other way. I've had so many memories and experiences with my cousins and siblings that when my grandma and grandpa retired from farming and milking their cows some of those experiences died. It's not the same and never will be. At least they didn't sell all of their livestock and land so there still is cows to feed and land to ride four wheeler on. Definately is better then nothing! - Used the picture of the cow from m

CAMPING!! - Green Lake. The BEST campground ever! My family camps there for a week every June. - Picture of a Camfire because that's where all the fun stuff happens.

Every year my family and I go camping. We usually take three trips in the summer. Of course though, my family's definition of camping is a little bit different then another's. When we go we're talking about six campsites, it's a huge family event of course, with campers, RVs, microwaves, fridges, air conditioners, and TVs. Yeah, that's right, we really ruff it! Things my family does together? EAT! Always. We start in the morning and don't really stop. We usually play volley ball, swim, go horse back riding, flee markets, and we always have a traditional chimney log!! We always have great stories to tell when the trip is over and have fun and every year. I never can wait for the next trip to take.

Other Bloggers

For English class I had to go to five other bloggers and comment about some of the things they wrote. The most interesting thing about this assignment was that the blogs I went on couldn't be from people from the US. I found reading others blogs that some people have different ways to things compared to how I do. To me some of these things sounded funny but then if you think about it, half of what I say people are probably laughing at too with my choice of words.
