This book is called What Every Girls (excpet me) Knows. The author is Nora Raleigh Baskin. I started reading this book 1 day ago so I don’t really know the story yet. However, I think I will enjoy it and these kind of books are my favorites! ๐Ÿ˜€


VIVE LA PARIS (Reading Log)

This book is aboutย  girl who is willing to go to Paris. I wouldn’t recommend this book becuase the first part, it was fun and interesting but as you read on it gets boring. That is why I stopped reading it after 3/4 of the book. I think I wasted time. I could have read other books.

Girls Barely FlirtingGirl Barely 15 Flirting for England

January 8th 2011

This story is about an exchange partner in England and France. The main character, Jess saw the picture of her exchange partner(boy). In the picture, the boy was so cute and hot! Jess loved it and she brought the picture to the school and showed it to everyone. Everyone thought he was cute and hot! The day the exchange partner was coming… Jess was excited and she didn’t know how to express her feelings. It was dark and everyone in England was waiting for the bus to come. Some other cute and hot guys were getting off the bus. Jess thought it was HER exchange partner but none of the teacher called her name and the last one to get off was a small little elementary boy. Jess thought there would be 1 more person but Jess’s name was called. He was small and not hot. He just looked like a baby… It was different and Jess couldn’t believe that. January 11th 2011 I had reading this book for a long time and first I loved it. Now I am in the 35th chapter and I have 5 more chapters to go! However, it is becoming really not fun and I don’t want to read anymore. I am going to read 1 more chapter tonight and if I don’t like it I am planning to read another book. Maybe I should have changed the book awhile ago because I didn’t like the book from about chapter 29.

Bras & Broomsticks (Reading Log)

November 6th

Now Iโ€™m reading a book called Bras & Broomsticks from Sarah Mlynowski. I love this book and now Iโ€™m in chapter 8. Personally I donโ€™t like reading books and Iโ€™m a very slow reader but I read this book everyday because I like it. This book is about teenage girls and about their crush.

Fall Break

My fall break this year was really exciting and fun! I went to Korea afterschool and came back to Japan after 1 week. I was excited but also nervous to meet my family in Korea. When I got to the airport people there were finding each other. When I met my family there I bowed to them because in Korea we have to bow to older people. We have to bow to older people in Japan too. In Korea I did shopping so much with my aunt and I was really in a good mood. My aunt is in college and when I was shopping with her I can hear all the voice from other people who are wondering which clothes they should buy. I was wondering around to see what I could buy. In the sale section there were people flying over each other to look if there is a good clothes they could buy. I also ate so much tasty food.ย I ate so much there that I can almost hear my tummy saying โ€œSTOP EATING!!!โ€ When I heard that I knew that I should really stop eating. My aunt also did nails for me. I was glad that my aunt could do that and even my aunt was doing it for me I was learning how to do. It was so interesting that I wanted to try but my aunt didnโ€™t let me and also we didnโ€™t have enough time. I think this fall break was the best fall break I ever had.


Pick 4

I think the best price for this Pick 4 sale is 14,000 yen. I chose thisย price because we added the retails and we had subtract some amount of money because it was a sale. Also we thought 14,000 yen is a good price because even though its a quite a high price we can make the buyers satisfy. Also since the highest price is 12,000 yen and the lowest price is 8,000 yen the middle is 10,000. After we add 30% to 10,000 yen that will be 13,000 yen and if we add 10% more it will be 14,300 yen. I thought 14,000 yen is better than 14,300 yen because its 300 yen cheaper and the price is easy to remember. Also this is connected to real life because if there is a sale like Pick 4, all the people wants the price very cheap but the seller wants to make the price high. So the seller should think and find the equilibrium point. Then the buyer and the seller both will be very happy to sell and buy.


Proportional Reasoning – Yuuki Miyata (Math 7-4)

1.) What audience do you think that this video was intended for? (audience)

I think this vedio was intended for audience who don’t really care about what is happening in the world. Actually I came to this school at starting of 6th grade. However, before that I knew that global warming was happening and I should be ECO friendly but I wasn’t and I didn’t know detailed reason. After I came to this school, I realized that it is very serious and I started to collect pet bottle cap personally in home and I brought it to school. Like that, some people might not know about problems happening in the world properly. So they might not care, but this problem is very serious. So I think this was a video for people who doesn’t really know about it and should know about it.

2.) What do you think the intent of the video was?ย  (theme)

The theme is that you should be thankful to what you have because there are many people who are really poor that they can’t even eat even once in a day. Sometimes, you say what you don’t like but if you think people who can’t do anything, we shouldn’t really say something bad about what you have. Sometimes you don’t like what you’re reading. However, there are lot’s of kid who never had a book on their hands. They want to get educated but they can’t. They want to eat but they can’t. They don’t want to work but they have to. That is because their in poverty. We should be thankful that we go to school, we eat, and we don’t to do any work.

3.) Choose 4 or 5 different ratios that stood out for you and discuss them.

12:100 = There are only 12 people who has computer when there are 100 people.

8:12 = 8 people has internet connection out of 12 people who has computer.

33:100 = 33 people are christian

50:50 = 50 are women and 50 are men

4.) Which of the ratios could also be used to describe the CA community?ย  Why?

I think 50:50 could be used in CA because CA has almost equal number of boys and girls.

5.) Which of the ratios would not be appropriate to describe the CA community?ย  Why?

8:12 will be not appropriate because every computer has internet connection in our school and we don’t have any problem with technology because there are few tech teachers as well.

6.) If you looked at more than one version, did you notice any discrepancies?ย ย  If so, why might they have occurred?

If I looked at more than one version of these video, yes, I would notice discrepancies. However, it would only be the numbers. The feeling I feel will not change at all because there are lot’s of countries who are in poverty right now and I know lot’s of place that is in poverty. I feel really bad and I really want to help them. The feeling that I want to help them would never change.

7.) Feel free to post alternate versions on your own blog.

This is a another video clip that I found but the story is similar and it is really serious. However, the music that is following is a little not matching.

8.) I commented on Laura and Esther’s blog. For Laura, the blog entry was really short comparing to Esther’s. However, the quality of both blogs were really high. I thought doing work is quality not the quantity. For Esther’s blog, as I said it was very long. However, the writing was high leveled and the entry she did was very interesting. Even though it was long, it wasn’t boring and it was a clear entry.
