Land Rafting | Extreme Partying

Danica OnlineHello Blogosphere,
Your probably looking at the title like, WHAT? Well, It’s exactly what it sounds like. Yesterday, a few classes from our school went to a really cool skiing place. It was really awesome.

Okay, so, at about 8:15a.m. we left on our bus to go to the most extreme tubing place you could ever imagine. It took us about 1 hour to get there, but it was sooo worth it! When we got there, my mom, Christina (Yes, from Christina Online) and Lauren (Yes, from Lauren Online as well), went in a group together. We waited in line (it wasn’t that long of a wait), but when we got at the top, we gave our tubes to these guys (I don’t know their names) but they took our tubes and put them on the hook on the side of the chair lift, then we had to run to the black mat, to wait for our lift. The actual lift was about a minute or two, but it was really fun. Once we got to the top of the mountain we got our tubes back and found our hill. I think we picked number 11 to start with, but when we went down, it was really fast! Continue reading

The Iron Trial | Another AMAZING Holly Black Book

The Iron Trial DanicaHello Blogosphere,
Okay so a while back, I wrote about the book “Doll Bones” by Holly Black. Now that was a fantastic book, I mean truly WOW! On Christmas, I woke up to find ton of amazing gifts. I opened the book The Iron Trial and some other book. A few weeks after Christmas, I started reading the book and I mean I got so into it! It was AMAZING! I ended up reading pages and pages each day! I NEVER wanted to put it down. I ended up finishing it that month (That’s good for me because I don’t read book quickly).

If you want to hear a summary continue reading:
The main Character Call (short for Callum, last name Hunt) is a boy who mother had passed away a few years ago. He had something wrong with his leg, so he wasn’t aloud playing sports. He was a little upset about it because he LOVES basketball. He get s mad because he wanted to join a team or something, but he couldn’t because of his leg. He gets mad a smashes the ground with his anger (by telekinesis). His father comes to pick him up for school when he see’s what Call had done. his father told him he had to take a est at the Magisterium because he had special powers. He agreed. His father didn’t want him to get into the school he was taking the test for, so Callum’s dad told him to purposely fail it…

Oma’s Quilt

untitledHello Blogosphere

So a few weeks ago, I posted a post (Really Danica? Posted a post, OH MY GOSH How obvious) about a short video called ‘Nightmare at School’. I have been ‘Surfing The Web’ (I know, not cool) a little bit and I came across this video called ‘Oma’s Quilt’ I thought it sounded interesting so I checked it out. I was really nice but kind of sad.

Here’s a short summary (otherwise known as a ‘Synopsis’, I know cool right? Your learning on a blog!!!) about this story: Oma (Which I believe is German for Grandma) Is moving out of her old house on Maple St. which she has lived in her (almost) her whole life. She’s moving to a retirement home called ‘Forest View’. As soon as she got there, she hated it, her room was too cold and the people weren’t nice. a little while later, Emily, her granddaughter decided to make her a quilt, so she wouldn’t be as cold at night. Emily and her mom made Oma’s quilt with all of the stuff from her old boxes as in; Wedding Dress cloth, Recital dresses, Pictures and more, they went to bring the quilt to Oma, but when they got there, Oma was packed up ready to leave Forest View. Emily’s mom tried to convince her to not to leave, but while that was happening, Emily was putting the Quilt on Oma’s bed. Finally, when Oma turned to look at what Emily had done, she dropped to her knees and started naming off things that the quilt reminded her of. At the very end of the video, Oma said she wasn’t going to leave because all she needed was on that quilt.

It’s a very sweet film about the family and it shows that the home is where the heart is.

Information about this film:
Director: Izabela Bzymek
Writer: Izabela Bzymek

Sims 3|Lifesimmer

Hello Blogosphere,

Sims3coverI have been OBSESSED with this AMAZING video game called; Sims. Sims is a virtual life simulator where you create little characters called ‘Sims’ and you can start a life with them in your computer. It’s such a fun game! You can get a job and get money (in the game). On YouTube, people make video’s with them playing the game and explaining what there doing. It’s really fun. If you want to get the game, it’s only 20$ (plus tax) per game. You can fin it at TheSms3.com . Also in this game, there’s a store where you can buy store content, which lets you buy stuff for the game that wasn’t there before. But if you want “CC” which is a short term for ‘Custom content’, which is content for the game then other people had made.

Like I said before, people make YouTube video’s about themselves playing Sims (I know it sounds boring, but I promise you it’s not), people actually dedicate there whole YouTube channel to this Sims game. My favourite YouTuber for this is Lifesimmer, she has over Continue reading

All You Need Is… The Beatles?!

Hello Blogosphere!

BEATLES DanicaA few weeks ago, I went with my mom and my brother to see a tribute to the Beatles, if you don’t know who the Beatles are, their a British… well I guess they were a “Boy band Before Boy bands”. Anyways they were a HUGE band (Huge as in really popular not as in like 50000000000 people in the band). There we’re for boys in the band: Ringo Starr, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and John Lennon. I really liked the ‘play’ and the people that were acting as the Beatles were really good at singing, (don’t tell her, but she almost cried) they sang a few songs and they had the funniest conversations with the audience! Also, there was a ‘t.v’ type thing that showed REAL LIVE footage from other concerts the real Beatles  had actually performed at! It was really cool but the footage was really emotional, lots of fainting and crying, but I would expect it  because they wouldn’t of had YouTube or anything else you could use to find their music.

Did You Say Skyline?!

Hi-ya!

Okay, so, if you saw my post about New York city, you`ll know that I really like New York, New York is a city, so I also love big cities! I don’t really know why, I guess it’s just because of all the bright colours and such, I just think they’re so beautiful! That’s why I’ve decided to make a gallery of all the most beautiful “City skylines” Continue reading

Tropical Vacation

Hello Blogosphere!!

Guess what?! In less then 8 days, (March 8 2015) I’ll be on a 31 hour plane to Australia for a 2 week cruise! I’m SO SUPER-DUPER excited. But sadly I’ll be missing 2 weeks of school which means I won’t be blogging for a while :(. But don’t worry! I’ll be sure to take a lot of pictures and post them so you can see what it’s like. I’m mostly excited to go on this cruise because I’ll get to see my Dad, he works on the ship as 1st assistant captain I think . I went last year (in 2014) to Alaska and it was SO fun. I went with my Mom, my brother and my mom’s friend. On the first day we went Kayaking in the ocean, my brother and I were so afraid that a whale was going to come and knock our boats over, none did, but as soon as we got back, my mom found an article about people kayaking and a boat flipped by a whale! On the second day, we went Zip Lining, I was terrified. Last we went gold panning! It was cool! I honestly have no idea what were doing this year but I’m excited!

Dancia OnlineBut THIS year… I’m going to the beautiful, magical FIJI!!! Well, we’re starting in Sydney, the the boat is going to go to a few places in Fiji which I’m really excited for!

Just a few interesting facts about Fiji:
1) The currency of Fiji is the Fijian dollar
2) The main official language of Fiji is Fijian. There are two other official languages English and Fijian Hindi or Hindustani (a mix of Hindi and Urdu).
3) Fiji is often called the Republican of Fiji
4) The capital and largest city in Fiji is Suva Continue reading

Nightmare at School

DanicaIn this video, the main character is afraid of people making fun of him, for not excepting who he is or what he likes. In this video, he’s looking ghostly when the girl was doing her pretention and she got made fun of when her legs were shaking. He`s also afraid of getting in trouble, because in the video, while he was trying to get to class, the principal got him in trouble for being late. When he was trying to get to class on time, he had to jump out of a black hole created by the principle, he jumped out but on the other side was the principals office

 

Examples of Surrealism:

In this story, there were a lot of examples of surrealism, 1) The stairs — In this film, the stairs were on the celling and on the walls, GRAVITY WON`T LET US DO THAT! You would fall off – if you could even get up! 2) The moving poles that were going back and forth between the halls— that’s logically impossible, there’s no way an object can fully teleport from one place to another and still be fully solid. And finally 3) When the principal made those black holes with stickers, he used that to transport between rooms instead of walking room to room, if that’s our future, then wow! We`ll be super lazy!

If you want to check this cool video that’s kind of really mind boggling here`s the link:  https://www.nfb.ca/playlists/kids-cartoons/viewing/nightmare_at_school/
