Last Sunday, my mother, my aunt, and I went on the March for babies walk. My original motivation for going was that I needed community service credit for the National Society of Leadership and Success, but I didn’t find anybody with them. We had walked from Broadway Ave. all the way to 42 St. All the while, we saw many other school groups and families there. Everyone who walked also got cheered on by one of the schools. After that, we walked around a restaurant/market partly owned by Mario Batali. We didn’t get to see him, though. Nevertheless, I had a great time there walking around. I was happy that my mom and my aunt had joined me on this walk, and I would happily go on another one.

 

 

Blog Like Flaca Would

its-called-grammar-tonta

Flaca may be in prison for fraud and endangerment, but she’s got an opinion and she’s going to let you know it: how grades don’t matter, but words do, even your font choices.

She’s critical of stereotypes:

And how they cause angst.

 

And Flaca is fearless about taking risks with her big ideas.

Not everyone agrees with her, but she’s got a process and sticks to it. I think Flaca would be a great blogger as she would be:

  • thoughtful with her post titles,
  • giving her opinions,
  • backing them up with links,
  • proof reading her grammar and punctuation,
  • and embedding cool media that’s she’s made or found from elsewhere.

She knows the effort on the little things matters as well as just getting yourself out there.

Blog like Flaca would.

As the Sun Sets…

Time flies… especially when you’re in front of a computer screen. It was a great experience to be a part of the CT101 course.

I had a great time working on my site: yemayaguru.com I started this projected because of my personal journey in spirituality. For the most part I’ve kept my site within shades of blue because of my fondness of the ocean. (Even my user name CHILDofAGUA)

The site was separated into various categories that could give a further understanding about Lukumi. I thought to provide a history section, so users to access content about where it comes from and how it changed over time. Which lead me to create a section that could house different interviews I would gather from elders who wanted to share their stories with me. I added a vocabuarly section to help the user experience through all the content.

UPDATE: I actually changed my theme around to Sydney after the last class prevention. Added 2 new pictures that went better with my site and allowed for longer time before the header photos slide away. I changed the welcome page to speak about the site and its purpose.

I am looking forward to using the site next semester for online discussions about spirituality.

A Small Bird Just Decided the next President

Bernie Sanders campaign just experience an endorsement from Mother Nature when during a political campaign rally in Portland, Oregon on March 24, 2016. In the Youtube Clip below, the democratic presidential nominee hopeful Bernie Sanders is interrupted by a sparrow. The audience began clapping when they noticed the little bird fly onto the stage, but the audience loses it at 0:33 of the clip when the sparrow actually flies closer to Sanders and lands on his podium. The media and Sanders supporters alike have seen this moment as a sign from the Universe… Bernie Sanders will be the next President of the United States of America.
