The Wonderful Snow effects

Hello, you might have noticed some changes around McDowell Media. Well, the changes were made by me and my fellow students to spruce the blog up for winter. This is also for the student blogging challenge with option number three Spice Up Your Blog With Mrs. Vazquez. I myself added the snowing. Snow is a common thing in Ohio during the winter. I got the HTML code for the widget from https://www.kirupa.com/html5/the_falling_snow_effect.htm.

Thank you for reading and please comment, what do you think of the new changes?




A Bird, a Flower, and a Friend

I see a wide array of colors. Watercolor blue against bright green, mixing in together creating something beautiful.

I hear baby birds calling out to their mothers and the people I care about most, my friends, whispering next to me.

I smell the pure grass blowing in the wind, almost as if they’re waving goodbye…

I taste the cool wind, ruffling my hair, carrying me away from all reality.

I touch the cold stem of a crisp daisy between my chilled fingertips.

I feel free. Like I can fly, or do anything.

I wonder what it would be like to fly like a bird in the sky, never touching the ground.

I wish I could be a flower, swaying in the wind, never worrying about anything.

I hope I will  never lose the people I care about more than anything.

I am a bird, a flower and a friend.


Around me

Around Me


I see the baseball field being raked

I hear kids running on the football field behind me

I smell  the fresh cut wet grass

I taste the toast that I had for breakfast

I touch the bleachers I am sitting on

I feel the paper that I am writing on

I wonder why they don’t do a movie that is based on a book exactly like the book

I wish that I could slow down when I read a book so that I don’t finish a six hundred page book in two days (it’s happened)

I hope That we don’t have homework tonight.

I am allergic to everything out here (grass, trees, pollen, dust from the baseball field)
