As the snow and ice cover the ground
And the wind grows fierce and swift
The cars keep circling round and round
Avoiding the mounting snow drifts
The look on my face shows alarm
As a relative tries grabbing the wheel
I struggle through fear,and try to stay calm
As My In-law laughs through this ordeal
After we’ve gained control of the car
I am happy the weekend is over
Next winter I’ll not venture so far
Not even in Patricks’ range rover

What is my ideal classroom? A serene and quiet environment in which we can study and concentrate on learning and nothing else. The current class condition is far from what I feel is the best learning environment. To improve, I think some can actually stop engaging in their own conversation when the teacher is trying hard to get our attention. And we really should not be using the Macbook unless told to. So, I hope we can all improve to make this learning journey an enjoyable one.
Well, it has indeed been enjoyable. Everyday beholds new things to learn. The Mac is so pro. I really wished everyone I know could come to this school, they would rly love it. The memories......
My favourite excerpt is "The Last Lecture".
I feel that it can actually brighten up someone's emotions when he/she is sad as the excerpt displays how Randy was optimistic and always looking on the good side of life instead of the bad sides. This I think ties in with my motto "Always look on the bright side of life"He is optimistic and is not self-centered. He is always concerned about how others will feel about what he is doing and does not feel that life is meaningless just because he is dying. The two phrases "What do I, alone, truly have to offer?" and "Maybe I'd be among the lucky ones who'd survive.". The first phrase can tie in to me contributing to society and my studies. To be the most effective in what I do best, I have to study the right subjects. I must also consider what I can do will contribute to the society the most. The second phrase can tie in with me when I'm taking my tests. For most tests up til now, I have not been putting in 100% effort. During and after the test, I would pray that I will pass or do well. But usually I would not be successful and would fail or get good marks. So, I intend to kick this bad habit.
Expanding Our Learning Network. My understanding is that we have an ever expanding network of places to learn and share new information. This value is important as it allows us to expand our sources of information and get more even quicker. This improves our learning experience by allowing us to learn more than just what the teacher can offer.
