My first weird candy bar is “Bar None.” This candy bar was originally made by Hershey in 1987. This bar was also introduced in Canada and it was called “Temptation.” The Bar None is made with chocolate wafers and chocolate cream with a layer of crushed peanuts all over the top. Later in 1992, in attempt to overcome some manufacturing issues, the bar was changed from a single piece to twin sticks.
The next candy I chose was “Bean Boozled.”I know this isn’t a candy bar but its weird. This popular candy that comes in a box, inside of the box there is candy jelly beans that have tons of flavors with some bad and some good. For example you could either get the blue jelly bean “Toothpaste” or “Blueberry.” The concept of the game is to spin a wheel with tons of different flavors then when you land on a color you look and see what jelly bean that is then take the jelly bean out of the box and eat it and find out if you got the good kind or not. There is a very high chance of you getting the bad one though.
The last candy bar is called “Camel Balls.” These balls have a brown coating filled with extra sour red liquid. They are made by the Spain-based confectionary company Fini and are distributed all over the world. Camel balls are primarily made of sugar. It also contains glucose syrup, gum base, flavorings, glazing agents, vegetable oil, and food coloring.

Some people think traditional holidays are the best but I think weird holidays are even better. My first weird holiday is Run it Up The Flagpole and See if Anyone Solutes It Day, This holiday is my personal favorite holiday. I chose this holiday on behalf it’s my favorite and it’s so weird, plus I love the name. Although it has really cool name, it really isn’t that exciting. This holiday is floating an idea to see what people think, or if they notice.This term is commonly used in advertisements and print media. This day is a day to be creative and test new ideas and concepts, This holiday is in the month of January.
One more weird holiday is National Nothing Day. This holiday is simply a day for nothing. To celebrate this day is to simply do nothing and get credit for it. This day was created in 1973. There’s really nothing much more to day about this holiday. All I know about this holiday is that you do absolutely nothing and that we should celebrate it way more often.
One last holiday is Unlucky Day, unlucky day is on December 31st. unlucky Day is the last is the last day of the year. It is pretty similar to Friday the 13th. I don’t have much to say about unlucky day but people think that some person made it up because that day they were just having a really bad day. These are a couple of weird holidays that you might now on try. So that leads me to say, What is your favorite weird or traditional holiday? David Mulder via Compfight

One of my biggest accomplishments that I have succeeded in the 20% project is NONE! I have not made any because we didn’t get a letter back from our mentor so we had to keep sending e mails to different mentors because none of them would e mail us back. This week we actually got a mentor e mail us back so now we are starting to get a lot of stuff done. At first I was a little worried that we wouldn’t get a mentor fast enough but we did so now I feel that we can accomplish a lot of our goals. Now that we have a mentor, we have accomplished quite a few things like plan our fundraiser and when and where were doing it.
My December goals are hearing back from the person were having our fundraiser at and finish planning. The things we need to plan are if we don’t get to do our fundraiser we need want it at, then were else would it be. Another thin g we need to work on is talking more to our mentor about when and where we are going to make the knot blankets. Like_the_Grand_Canyon via Compfight
My classroom window has a lot of things you can imagine in your head that actually come through the clear glass that you look out of. It’s like a world of impossible actually becoming possible. It’s sounds weird but there are cows, rainbows, chickens, dinosaurs, flowers that can communicate, walking pants and everything you can imagine. Why this is such a strange window is because you can imagine anything and it will come true and trust me a lot of kids have imagined weird things at this window. Go ahead try it out yourself.
I have and I definitely have imagined pretty weird thing at this window like… the walking pants and ice cream carts that can roll by themselves, the talking flowers was also my idea. I have no clue who decided to put dinosaurs through the window but that’s there idea. I can’t blame them because this is they window of imagine. Plus, that is no where near as bad as the cow on the rain bow who’s utter is used for getting orange juice instead of milk but that’s what they imagined, so that’s what happens. I don’t know how this is possible but all I can say is logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere- Albert Einstein.

My partner (Kristin) and I are making knot blankets for cancer patients so that they know that people care about them. I mean how bad can cancer be, you don’t have to do work and you get free food. to us it is about the loneliness. We have seen this problem so we are planning to take these blankets to a hospital. We looked up online for cloth to make them and they were a little pricey so we have decided to do a fundraiser.
To help us plan when this fundraiser is going to be, we are hoping our mentor will be Allison. We are not positive on what the fundraiser is going to be about but we were thinking a movie night at a park or maybe just going to Kroger and ask for money to help. Once we get enough money we will go to Michaels or Jo-Ann fabrics and possibly asks for a discount because of how much the knot blankets cost and what we are doing this for. We will learn the importance of helping people in need. During this process we will need a large(er) space to make these blankets.
Our deadline for getting and buying the blankets is as soon as possible after the fundraiser.This means so much to us because Kristin and I have both been in the hospital for a few days and it wasn’t that fun. We can only imagine being in the hospital for half of your life or your whole life. This is why this project means so much to us. This is Cloth For a Tear.
My partner and I have had the idea for our 20% project of making knot blankets for cancer patients.
I am feeling that we will accomplish our 20% with a little bumps in the road. I am feeling this way because I know my partner and I are hard workers and we get things done. The second emotion I am feeling is excited. I am feeling this way because I can’t wait to get started and see the happy children;s faces when we give them the blankets. The final emotion I am feeling is stressed. I am feeling this way because we still have a lot to accomplish and get things done, but I know we can deal with a little bumps in the road.
Our goals for this month are receiving our email from Ms. Louden. We also want to start planning our fundraiser.

What is it, it’s orange, it’s bright, it’s a jack-o-lantern!!!! Let’s go, stated Tyler. No, I don’t want to, said Kaylee. It’s to scary, but that’s the perfect pumpkin for mom. Come on let’s just go. Fine, but if I die it’s your fault. You won’t die stated Tyler rolling his eyes. Tyler and Kaylee slowly walking through the dark, black, scary tunnel, they see the pumpkin at the very end Kaylee and Tyler getting more scared they look behind at the light pause for a second and keep walking. As they get closer and closer to the jack-o-lantern, the tunnel has a terrible smell like dead body smell. Kaylee and Tyler realize it’s harder and harder to breath, Tyler felt like fainting, but he knew he couldn’t. Tyler clinched his eyes together to see a clear view of the pumpkin but when he did the pumpkin almost looked like he had legs and it looked like it was walking toward Tyler and Kaylee so Tyler mentioned it to Kaylee and Kaylee rolled her eyes and said your so dumb, maybe it looks that way because were walking towards it stated Kaylee. No, it really looks like it has legs. SHUT UP! your just trying to scare me said Kaylee. No I’m not. Look, As kaylee clinched her eyes he saw it! Wow! It really does look like it has legs. But I know it doesn’t, come on let’s just get this over with. They started walking towards the pumpkin and when Tyler and Kaylee went to pick up the Jack-o-lantern it smiled at them with a freaky smile like it wanted to kill them. Tyler and Kaylee screamed and ran as fast as they could to the light. The pumpkin started chasing after them and Kaylee stated, So it does have legs, What did I say, Stated Tyler. Then it grabbed them by the shirt and then. BOO!!!!
What do you think will happen next?
Activity 1- Copy writing is easy to do without even noticing, or noticing….. if you want to get in trouble. What I mean by that is copy writing is illegal and you can get in a lot of trouble by doing so. Copy writing is when you search up something and you write it down or type it and say it’s yours or “you’ made it up. For example the new craze about fidget spinners. You can say you made it up but you didn’t… unless you did. I did some research on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copywriting and it said website content writers (copywriters) are mostly seen and or have appeared on the internet. Copywriters on the internet are usually called, “digital copywriters.” But I think that we can all ask ourselves why is copywriting illegal? So you always want to make sure you never plagiarize and never copy write.
Activity 2- The picture you see to your right is fromhttps://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=sa4AFBPc&id=01FB7631BE5F833B1851922E2AE55143A9DDA195&thid=OIP.sa4AFBPcfVJbIx1MEkakmgEsDh&q=puppies&simid=608039672982800361&selectedIndex=0&ajaxhist=0.
The bright blue chair
As if it were the ocean waves, waving back and forth
The golden puppies lying as if they were the sun
Dark eyes, brown noses
Some light, some dark
Some tired, some not
All cuddling together like a all the planets squished up together
Some getting tired as if they were sleeping on a cloud
I loved the way you really described your avatar and how you showed yourself. I also loved the ay you started off your blog, it made me more interested and intrigued. You also used great grammar and punctuation. I noticed you mentioned you love science and you wanted to show what your avatar strived to be. Does this mean you soon want to become a scientist?
- I chose to read there blog because it seemed interesting to read and when I read the first sentence I just got engaged in the blog.
- I relate to the author of the blog because I also am striving to be something on day and so are they, just not the same thing.
- I posted that comment because everything I said in it was all true. For example she had all grammar and punctuation right on point, and she had her comma rules in there to. Also, she described her avatar in a really good way.
I chose this avatar because it describes me really well. I know my avatar is normal, but I’m not normal. I wish I could have made my avatar cooler and it describing me more but I didn’t know how to change my human into an animal. Anyways a few things to describe my normal avatar is my avatar has long dirty blonde hair, that I get from my mom. Something else that my avatar has is my bright blue eyes that I get from my dad, that are covered by my glasses which show that I am weird. I know that people who where glasses aren’t all weird but I am one that is. Another interesting feature about my avatar is my clothes. My clothes show a lot about me like how I’m a tom boy, my avatar doesn’t really show that but I don’t where girly clothes and I don’t where makeup, and I definitely don’t have a girly girl attitude, I know that sounds mean but it’s true. Well that’s all that my avatar shows but if I added in animal parts I would have a alligator mouth because I have a big mouth that likes to talk a lot. I would also have arms of a bear because I am strong. Another feature I would have is a monkey tail to show I have a crazy wild side. One last feature would be the whole rest of he body as a dog because they are really caring and protective just like me.
