Hello! Welcome to my blog. Here, you’ll find all the things I do in the year. Enjoy!

Last week, we had a mini exhibition where we show stuff about ourselves including art. I think I tried to try my best but I lacked the determination to push through. I was thinking “I suck at art, even if I try my best the product will be worthless.” all the time. Maybe if I had higher self-esteem when it comes to art, I might have done better. I should have tried way harder to draw because even though I was trying, I should have pushed myself harder, to the limit.
This year has really been hectic! When I moved back Hong Kong, I wasn’t worried about fitting in because I already had friends. I was right. I made new friends as well as my old mates. I think my grades are okay also. I also like coding and I would like to make my exhibition about it (interest). Since I am fitting in okay, I am not worried.
I tried hard but I should have managed my time better because sometimes I left stuff for the last minute then stayed up really late doing it. I need to have a timetable to set when to do tasks for when and up to what point I should do it until. I was creative in what I did but I must work my best because sometimes I rush it to last minute. When that happens then the quality of my music goes way down. If I work on these things then the quality of my homework will improve rapidly.
Last week, in PA, we had to develop a piece of music to perform to the whole class. Blues is a very expressive style of music that shows your feelings and emotion in rhyme and song. I think our blues piece could have been better because we messed up a little and did not have many emotions in it. We all definitely tried the best we could do. Everything can be better with practice (which we didn’t do much) so we have to find time to practice more next time. We didn’t have a chorus nor did we have improv. We did not set any goals which is also bad. In fact, we didn’t use the ATL skills much but we still we tried our best.
Overall, we could have done better with everything, even at our best. Practice makes perfect, I guess.

Plastic-Free Seas is an organization dedicated to cleaning up Hong Kong beaches and increasing awareness of this problem. They want more people to help with beach cleanups or having better habits in general. They also want to educate kids about the problem and get them to take action.
Most plastics that get cleaned up are visible to the naked eye. The problem is that there are also massive quantities of micro-plastics. This is dangerous for humans since fish eat micro-plastics and humans eat fish. The people at Plastic-Free Seas care a lot about the ecosystem in Hong Kong.
It is clear that they want the pollution to not get any worse. Microplastics are so small they are invisible to the naked eye. Thus, fish being eaten by humans that have micro-plastics in them may look healthy but it is not. Little do they know that they are eating plastics.
Plastic-Free Seas are passionate people who want to spread the word about saving the seas and making them plastic free. The challenge is that they may not get their message across to others who are too lazy to help out the ecosystem. You can help be participating in one of their beach cleanups.
Recently, I was approved by Ms. Zoe to start researching. My topic is “Coding and game design”. I envision making my RPG (Role Playing Game) that everyone can sample and describe the making of it. I want to have a big signboard with explanations of famous games. I think this will be a big hit for people because I will be showing them things they never knew about some classic games.
Firstly, I want to improve my time management. This means I must plan out my timetable so that I hand in assignments on time.
Second, I have to make sure I understand 100% what the teacher is asking me to do so that I don’t do the wrong homework or hand assignments in late.
These are my goals.
This week when we did patterns I think I understand what it is but I think I can do it quite good in finding the formula but there is always room for improvement. I will work on doing it better so that I can do it easily. Right now I can do it quite well. I can understand patterns well. Here is an example of a pattern.
Last Wednesday, 6C did an experiment called the Egg Suck (a.k.a. The Fire/Water – Type Pidgey experiment). In this experiment, we tried to make an egg go into a flask. Flask A had boiled water in it and B had a match in it on fire. The B specimen worked because the heat was higher so it worked faster. It was super interesting and hooking.
