My Strong Old Life

I wrote this short story Sunday night.

My Strong Old Life
September 28, 2009
Age: 14

Many years ago, my siblings and I were born. There were three of us. I’m old now, but here’s my life story: I was the runt between my siblings and I. They were worried about me. I couldn’t eat or drink. But I proved them wrong. I eventually started to grow, and I got taller than them. I grew and grew and grew. One year when I was in my adolescent years, some men came and took one of my siblings away from me. I flailed my arms and screamed for them to not take her away. But the men didn’t listen. The next day, the dreadful men came back, and they took my other sibling away from me. I knew they wouldn’t stop, so I didn’t even try to stop them. I was afraid that they would come back for me, but they didn’t. But I didn’t let my siblings departures keep me tied down either. I continued to grow, and I admit, I did grow a lot rounder. I continued to soar to great heights. When I grew as tall as I could, I watched over my neighborhood. My home for as long as I live. I still live there. And I’ll continue to keep watch. As long as my strong old life lets me.

* I was inspired to write this after I read an article about California’s Redwood Forests. *

Urban Ink Poster

This is another poster that I designed on PhotoShop. It's a picture I took of my own feet on the track at school. I also used another free tutorial to make it. It was a lot simpler than my first poster.

I also completed my Digital Photo Pass. It looks awesome but I'm not able to post that, so here's the poster. Enjoy it and let me know what you think!

Design a Contemporary Poster

I did this in Digital Photography. DP is a class that I have at school. And we do all kinds of stuff with pictures. Sometime last week, we started this project and I finished it today. If you have PhotoShop, then you can do this. Here's what you do:

1: Go to Google
2: Type in Photoshop Tutorial
3: Click on the second entry
4: Scroll down & click on Page 2
5: Click on Design a Contemporary Poster and follow the instructions

Here's what I came up with! Our PhotoShop at school didn't have some of the brushes, so I improvised! Also, my computer wouldn't let me do a lens flare, so I improvised there too!

Let me know what you think!

Don't know what

I've kinda run out of stuff to blog about. It's always been easy, but I don't know why it's not easy right now. I assure you that in a few days, I will have something new to write.

Yesterday when I was in my school library, I wrote a poem. I titled it flying and I have no idea why. That usually happens a lot.

Flying is fun, it’s the only time when I’ve felt like I’ve won.

Being so high in the sky, feeling as if the worries will just pass me by.

No worries to tie me down, not wanting to be back on the ground.

Passing by the clouds so smooth and white, but don’t worry they don’t bite!

The light cast upon me feels so warm, I never feel the coming storm.

What I know is that there’s nothing to fear, but my life is the one I should steer.

So yeah flying is fun, it’s the only time when I’ve felt like I’ve won.

P.S. Tell me what you think!
