Play Autitions

Earlier this week, my mom announced that my school is doing Alice in Wonderland for the spring musical. She said that anyone can audition, and I am going to audition. I picked two parts that I want-the mad hatter and the Cheshire cat. I think that both of them kind of fit my personality. I'd prefer to be the Cheshire cat. I'll give updates after auditions! bye for now ~ Natali

Camp Widjiwagan

Today I am going to go to Camp Widjiwagan with my classmates. Camp Widjiwagan is a camp that is close to the boundary waters. I am staying there the entire week and doing things with my classmates. I am going to be able to hike and maybe canoe, and do other outdoor things. On the way up to camp I am going to stop at Dairy Queen for lunch, and on the way back I am stopping at Little Caesars to get pizza. I hope to have an amazing time!

Camp Omega Cross Country

Last weekend I did cross country at Camp Omega. I ran 2 miles over large hills and muddy paths. It was extremely fun. I got 9th place. I might have run it in under 20 minutes, but no one told me my time. After that, my coach gave me some m&m's & a Gatorade.

Feed My Starving Children

On Saturday I had my birthday party at Feed My Starving Children. The entire group packed 101 boxes. We packed for about an hour and a half. I got a free t-shirt because it was my birthday. I also got to try some of the food. It tasted really good. I'm going back for my birthday next year.

Feline Mask

I am working on a cat mask for art this week. It is a black cat with one green and one blue eye. I want to wear it for Halloween if I can. I already finished with the foam base, and am working on the fur. When it is finished, I will upload a picture onto my blog. Making the mask is very messy. There is a lot of fur on the ground and pieces of foam everywhere. I'm over halfway done.
That's all for now!

Sleepover

I was at a sleepover last week at my friend Sylvia's house. I hadn't seen her in a while. We played a few games and watched videos together for a while. Sylvia is getting a new kitten! I think that her cat Onyx is going to like the new kitten, but I might be wrong. After that, I had my first skating lesson of the season at the Oval in Roseville.

Bye for now!

First week of school

Today was my first week of 7th grade. I am still doing half-time home school. The subjects that I have at school are band, bells, science, choir, German, and art. My favorite subject is art. I got to have a pajama day yesterday because my principal is awesome! If you are Home-schooled, leave a comment below!

Art app : Ibis Paint x

Ibis Paint X is a free drawing app. It is very easy to use, and can produce amazing works of art. There are many brushes to choose from, and infinite colors. One of my favorite things on the app is the line stabilizer, which draws smoother lines, and makes your art look better. I use it to keep my digital art from looking like trash. I think it is really easy and fun to use. I would definitely recommend it.

Apollo 11

Happy 50th anniversary of Apollo 11! Last weekend I went to see one of the last film shows at the science museum before they switch to digital. I got to take a free piece of film home afterwards.  The movie was about the Apollo 11 mission. After that, I went to the Leonardo Da Vinci exhibit, which had a lot of copies of his inventions, like his flying machine. I liked it a lot. Bye for now!

Camp Omega

Last weekend I went to Camp Omega, a christian camp in Waterville. I did a lot of things there, like hatchet throwing and canoeing. My favorite thing was swimming. The first night, there was a bad storm and my entire cabin stayed up until around 2:00 in the morning. The second night, I twisted my ankle and got to ride in a trailer back to camp. After that, I got to sleep in a hammock. I liked camp a lot, and am going back next year.

Germany part 4 : Kiara

Day 1: I am so excited to see Kiara! Today we went to Basteibrücke, and walked around there. It was very pretty, and I got to climb rocks around that area. We are staying at the four lions hostel.

Day 2 : Today we went to Konigstein fortress. Kiara and I went ahead to play for a little bit.

Day 3 : We walked a different trail to Basteibrücke. We also went to play at a little beach that Kiara found.

Day 4 : Kiara and I went to the woods by her house and built a fort. We stayed there nearly the entire day. We also saw a cat and called it Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Day 5 : We biked to a large park today. It had many ropes and bridges and a hamster wheel. We stayed there for a while and then we went back home. My friend and I went back to the fort and we saw that an area was roped off. Kiara went in and found an old object under a rock. She thought it was an old bomb. She called her dad who worked for the EOD. He said it might be. We also showed my parents a play that we made up.

Germany part 3 - Salzburg, München, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Nürnberg

Salzburg : We went to the Hohensalzburg fortress, where we saw the marionette museum. We didn't get to go far inside though. Then, my sister wanted to watch a trick bike competition. After that, we went to the Domgrabungs museum, and saw all the old church pieces that they excavated. After that, we saw Mirabell gardens, and we wandered around and found a playground. The last thing we did was Hellbrunn gardens, which was kind of pretty. There were a few fountains, and I found another playground.

München : In münchen, we first went to the Olympiastadion. I saw the eisarena, but it was closed and I didn't get to go inside. After that, we went to the Nymphenburg gardens. There were cool statues of greek gods and a huge fountain. After that, we wandered around a little behind the gardens. Then, we went to the old town, and watched the glockenspiel. The glockenspiel is really cool. Finally, we went to the English gardens. There were a few fountains, and a cool area on the river that people could surf on.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen : First, we took a cogwheel train up to Zugspitze. We got to climb a few rocks, and sled on a glacier. It got really foggy after that. We took a cable car up to zugspitze, but all we saw was fog and clouds. My family has bad luck with mountains and weather. After that, we went to Eibsee for a little bit, and stayed to watch the ducks by the bridge. Last, we went to Partnachklamm. It is a gorge where there is a natural tunnel near the river. I did not like that. It was too loud and cramped for me. Also, it kept dripping on me.

Nürnberg : Today, we went to Nürnberg and saw the old Nazi party grounds. We walked around the lake a little. After that, we walked around the old town a little, and saw someone playing a marimba. We also saw a living statue. I am currently on a train to Berlin to see my best friend. YAY!

Germany! Part 2 - Heidelberg, Rothenburg, Neuschwanstein

Heidelberg : We went to Heidelberg and saw the old town. We went up to a castle that was very old (and ruined). After that we saw a cathedral where the bones of the Three Wise Men were. We found free water (only one I have seen in Germany forever!)

Rothenburg : After Heidelberg, we went to Rothenburg. My family walked around the old town, and we walked around the old wall. After that, we found a park on the edge of the wall, and then we had to go back to the train station.

Neuschwanstein : After Rothenburg, we went to Neuschwanstein (Literally new swan stone) And got a tour. It was built in the 19th century, but was modeled after the middle ages (and a few operas.) There was a small room that looked like a cave, modeled after one of king Ludwig's favorite plays.
after that, My family went to the marienbrucke to go on a hike.

Germany Day 1 - Flight and Frankfurt

Yesterday I went to Germany. I did not like the plane ride because I had a cold. After I got there, I walked around Frankfurt. I saw a lot of old buildings and took a few pictures. I saw a cool playground, but my sister didn't want to play, so we couldn't stay there. My friend and I Skyped for a little bit before bed, and the I fell asleep.

camping trip

I went camping last weekend. When I was there, I went swimming. I went down to the lake every day. I liked it because I collected a lot of rocks. I also had a lot of tasty food, like s'mores, hot dogs,  & donuts. It rained for part of the day on Saturday. I got a book called 'mammals of Minnesota.' My sister got a harmonica. I saw a dead squirrel and 2 dead frogs, too.

After Camp

At camp on Thursday, there was a huge snowstorm and we had to stay inside. On Friday when we left, one of the cars got stuck and we had to wait for about an hour. Also, someone got a flat tire. So, that was a little boring. We also went to Hardee's on the way back. After that I had a spelling bee in which I got 4th place

CWD

Hello. I am from CWD, an association my friend and I made. It is focused on cat world domination. We made it because we both love cats and my friend owns 2 cats. We made up ranks and an HQ and everything. We even made up a code where my name was 947471.

Why I like Animal Jam

Today I am going to be writing about why I like Animal Jam. There are many things to the game, and a lot of people working behind it.


  1. The first reason I like animal jam is because of how much there is to do. It is unlikely that you will get bored within a few minutes. Over 1 million people play the game, so there is also social interaction with other human beings.
  2. The second reason I like it is because it is educational. A lot of people will learn something about animals that they didn't know before.
  3. The third reason is that you can customize everything about your character, from its eye shape to the accessories it wears.
  4. The fourth reason is that there's something for everyone. If you prefer the dark side, there are phantom den items. If you are more natural, there are many plants that you can get for your den.
  5. The fifth reason is that a lot of people roleplay, which is something I like doing. In sarepia forest, you can find two kinds of people : The 'normal' people, which stay in the upper area, and the role-players, which dominate the lower half.
  6. The sixth reason is that there are many different environments with their own style, like coral canyons, which has a lot of rocks and a few small desert plants, along with life that would normally live in canyons.
  7. The seventh and final reason is the color scheme. The color scheme is relatively neutral, with warm brown and pale blue dominating the scene. Each environment also has a color scheme of its own.
So, I hope this has helped you a lot, and if you want to, join animal jam! I am silverstar926.

Animal jam secrets and tips

Hello! I have been playing animal jam for a long time, and I want to share some of the secrets I have found. I will also be sharing tips to help.
Secrets
the Basement of secrets
  1. The basement of secrets is hidden on the bottom left corner of the screen and you have to click a certain spot to get in. Once you are there, there is a hidden shop in the lower right corner of the room. The stairs lead to the Chamber of Knowledge in the Temple of Zios.
  2. The Royal ridge shop is above the den shop in Coral canyons. You have to be a flying animal to get into the shop. 
  3. In Tierney's aquarium, there is a passageway to Kani Cove. 
  4. In the Sol arcade, there is a little alien that appears in the window sometimes.
  5. In Tierney's aquarium, on the side, there is a little fish that follows your mouse around.
Tips
  1. if you are playing sky high, always follow the clouds with gems.
  2. If you are a wolf, there are wolf passages in Greely's inferno and the search for Greely
  3. If you are a non-member, you can do adventures and get more.

Christmas!

     Hi again. I am going to be writing about Christmas. I got a lot of presents. I also got to play with my cousins. I also got three different Christmas parties. One at my house and one at each of my grandparent's houses. My favorite gift was a Harry Potter music book. I also got a lot of treats. One of my presents was an ugly sweater cookie kit. I used all the sprinkles. I got 12 pairs of Harry Potter socks. I think my sister likes her nerf crossbow a lot. Today is my first day of school after break.
