A peek into Antarctica. Most inhabitants are animals but that does not mean there is no life. This long lost treasure has plenty to give.

 

Antarctica, which is earth’s fifth-largest continent whose only occupants are animals, seems to be often forgotten. This place is the coldest, driest, and windiest of all, yet is a site to be seen. Antarctica is also full of ice bergs, penguins, and whales. The word most often used to describe such land seems to, ironically, be beautiful. Nowadays, sadly, people have become selfish on another level, causing them to forget about the world around us. Just like the penguins that live on this continent, people need to partner up. Working together helps, as well as not standing alone can make a huge difference. There is no better time than the present to begin making a difference.

“Lindsay Lohan Reality Series Coming to OWN Network”
I am a huge fan of, not only, OWN but Oprah Winfrey! This channel has various entertaining shows. As we all are aware, Winfrey is a force to be reckoned with. Winfrey seems to be a down to earth individual with a huge heart. She, also, has this amazing mind that she puts to good use. Now, Winfrey trying to help Lohan better herself and life by giving her a reality show seems to not be a great idea. I admire her trying to help someone but not quite sure if by helping her in this manner will have a positive or negative outcome. Normally, reality television is not the best, but we shall see.

“Woman Gored on Last Day of Bull Run”
This may sound sick to most but I am happy this happened! Yes, the fact that someone got hurt by a bull during an event like this one does not bother me one bit. Actually, it does bother me but more so for the animal not the human. Listen here, wild animals like these do not know right from wrong but humans do, at least I would hope an individual in her early 20’s. What can one expect from such a large and untamed animal, when it is being “ironically” bullied? Bull runs are pathetic to me and I do not see the entertainment in them. Obviously, I am an animal lover but even if I was not, how can anyone see anything positive in such a sick sport. For someone to be anywhere near a bull, especially an angry bull and not think they may get hurt, is a fool! I feel badly for the animal, this is abuse and should not be legal!

“Is Medical Marijuana Safe for Children?”
Marijuana is one of many touchy subjects, because of the obvious, it is a drug and illegal. Everyone has their own opinion, like myself, on world wide problems, like this one. Marijuana, to me, is safer than drinking, for example. How many people have you heard that have died or got hurt from being drunk? How about, how many people have you heard that have died or got hurt from being high? When it comes to our children, this subject becomes even touchier. I believe if it has been proven medically that this drug can help someone, why not legalize it.

-Get Out the Sunblock: Carrollwood’s Weather is Heating Up-
The weather does seem to be getting warmer and warmer. This rain needs to go away but we already know how Tampa, Florida can get during the summer! I have always joked by saying that this state is “bi-polar.”
-OMG PD: Carnival Worker Charged with Child Abuse-
Wow! The title alone makes me gasp for air. One of the many reasons I question having a kid, is because of situations like this one. This poor mother trusted another individual to take care of her child and this madness occurs. I feel as though if I was to have a kid, I would ruin their life by just locking them up in the bathroom .. away from the world.
-Cross/Dressing Burglar-
The things people do nowadays blows my mind! Could he have not handled it any better? Really, driving your car into a home! Then, going crazy on someone and cross-dress. I am quite sure cops have seen it all but I can bet when they showed up they were in shock.

This web site is pretty cool! Being able to read up on current events around your home is amazing. Not only can you get news in the city you live but you are able to choose wherever. I will be using this page in the future, not just for today.

. Photo Journalism .

Trying to think of what to do my project on, boggled my brain. I could not pin point one thing I was interested in taking various pictures of, portraying a story. At first, I thought of cooking! That would have been easy, correct? All I had to do was have my mother take a picture of me while I cook and take a fabulous picture of the finished product. As I pondered if this was a good idea or not, I thought of something else. Finally, I decided to do my project on something I love. Back in 2011 I took a trip to Europe with my mother. She decided to give me this amazing trip, to: Paris and London. I was gone for a month so I could fully take advantage of all the wonders these places were willing to give. This is a trip I will never forget and hold close to my heart. Paris is Paris but London, I would live there. I thank God I have such an amazing mother and life.

Blog #5

My story will be based on a recipe! Although I am on the verge of becoming a Vegan, do not hold me to it .. just yet. Chicken is something I continue to eat, every once in a blue. When it comes to me being an excellent cook, well, I am far from it but I try. There is one meal that I, not only, actually enjoying making but enjoy eating it as well. Taking pride in what you make is important which is why I will be sharing this deliciousness with you all. What is it you may ask? “Parmesan chicken.” Yes, indeed, I will be creating a savory dish of Parmesan chicken tenders with two sides. One of my sides will be my other “infamous” green bean casserole with some delicious mashed potatoes.

I chose to write a story on this because, not only, it is creative but seem nowadays “food” is the new fad. I believe food catches anyone’s and everybody’s attention!
Student of H.C.C. will be, definitely, interested in this story because (at our age) I believe we are all still learning new things, as well, as the fact that this dish is nothing crazy so it should appeal to most.

My main sources will be myself and whomever I am able to get to take pictures of me while in action. I am thinking my mother, because I will be using her kitchen, but then again she is not the best photographer. We shall see..

I would say I need more information for this article, since I have made this dish before but there is always room for improvement so maybe I can Google similar recipes.

My main question for whomever will be taking pictures of all of this will be, “do you consider yourself a decent photographer?”

Other than the internet (Google), I do not see myself using any other source of information. We all know, the internet is the best or well one of the best sources to use this day in age.

Good luck, to myself!

CALM AFTER THE STORM

Yes, I know, it is better said “calm before the storm” but in this particular case I would argue that famous quote. Calm after the storm is exactly how I felt once done interviewing the father of my ex. Not only was I nervous going into an interview as a first time interviewer but whom I chose to interview made this madness even crazier. May I add, questioning a person you have never met before gives off some type of a high. Sadly, the interview did not turn out as I had hoped. Honestly, I actually had hope and had nothing but positive thoughts going through my little head before hand but deep in side I knew this would not turn out “all butterflies!” Preparing for this interview was more of a mind game. Yes, I wanted to go into it prepared with my questions and what not but mentally I felt unstable. This particular individual hit home because at one point in my life I started to think of him as a father in law, not just the father of a boyfriend of mine. By selecting Rames Saddler, I knew this was going to be a tricky situation but I did it with good intentions. I could not think of any other stranger that I was interested in getting to know other than him. We are all human, so I was looking at it from a stand point of how this could benefit me as well. I feel as though I came across many challenges and not necessarily over came them all. Like I mentioned earlier, my challenges were more mental than anything else. Of course, I had challenges like not having my questions in some kind of order and maybe my questions were not as interesting as I had hoped but those challenges I feel as though I learned from and over came. Now, walking away feeling as though things are still awkward between Mr. Saddler and I is one challenge I have not over came. I thought with time I would be able to better my relationship with him but being now that Zacharias is no longer part of my life, it all went down the drain.

INTERVIEW THE UNKNOWN

AS I SEARCH FOR PEOPLE THROUGH MY BRAIN TO INTERVIEW THAT I DO NOT KNOW BUT WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT, MY BOYFRIENDS FATHER POPPED INTO MY HEAD. IRONICALLY, NOW MY EX, HIS FATHER HAS BEEN ABSENT FROM NOT ONLY HIS LIFE BUT MINE, FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW. AFTER 3 YEARS OF BEING WITH SOMEONE ONE WOULD ASSUME THEIR PARENTS HAVE BECOME YOURS AS WELL, BUT NOT IN THIS CASE. THE ONLY OTHER TIME I CAME ACROSS THIS INDIVIDUAL WAS IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA AT ONE OF HIS SISTERS HOUSE DURING THE HOLIDAYS. MY EX AND I WERE ARRIVING AND HE WAS LEAVING, NO INTRODUCTION, NOT EVEN A HELLO. AWKWARD MOMENT FOR MYSELF, THINKING THIS WAS FINALLY IT, THE TIME I WOULD MEET HIM. BEING THAT MY EX HAD SUCH A UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS OWN FATHER, IT CAUSED ME TO DO THE SAME, IN A SENSE. ANOTHER THING THAT CAPTURED MY ATTENTION WAS THAT MY EX AND QUITE A FEW OF HIS FAMILY MEMBERS WOULD CONSTANTLY TELL ME OF HOW HIM AND HIS FATHER WERE SO MUCH ALIKE, IN A BAD WAY. RECENTLY I DECIDED TO JUST GO FOR IT! I DROVE TO LAKELAND, WHICH IS WERE HIS PARENTS LIVE AND HAD THE HELP OF HIS MOTHER, TO INTERVIEW THIS GENTLEMAN.
