Ivy Whittinburg had lived in Montauk for majority of her life. She had lived in London since she was four, but her family had insisted in a “change.” Montauk Point was so boring, she spent most of her spare time exploring the ruins of Camp Hero, and old government run lab. It was 3:01 am and she had snuck out of her house to explore. A door creaked open and…
“Hey officer! I think I found something!” It was now 2012, almost 20 years later, and the cops were finally on track. There were footprints of the ceiling. “How did she get up there? The officer wondered. Then all of a sudden the door creaked open and…
Just find our wonderland that doesn’t really exist. We think we will find It, but we never do. It’s an unreachable goal. Some people get do close to wonderland they find the doors and the bottle with drink me written on the door, but they just can’t fit through the hole, and soon enough we’re all falling down, slowly, spiralling out of control into a dark, unknown world. But maybe wonderland does exist, but we’re just imagining it differently. Maybe we’re already in wonderland. Maybe wonderland to us is just home.
ps: even though this might seem like it has nothing to do with the prompt it just remindd me of alice in wonderland.
Goal- To not go over 100 words
Link: http://BTN: 3 levels of government clip
Summary: This clip was about the 3 levels of government and how important each one of them is and what they do.
Facts: We used to have separate colonies that just governed for themselves.
In 1901 we changed it to how it is now.
In the 1970’s governments were more popular so they were given more money and power.
Questions: Do other countries have 3 levels of government?
Is this the best way to have our government?
Understandings: The three levels of government are actually more important than you think.
This new start, this place in Mars was meant to be my time. My time to show the colony what I really had, that I wasn’t like others. I was going to lead, and make Mars a better place, but then M7 jumped in. She said to me that I wasn’t leader material, and started the colony. It was exactly like the one on planet Earth. Cold, grey, empty. It was awful. Of course, I couldn’t blame her. She knew nothing better. None of them did. Only I had been passed down the stories of our old world. If I was in charge we would bring that back. We could live under blue skies, trees, have feelings. We could have life.
Dear Mum & Dad
I know a lot more stuff about Australia’s government.
So In case you didn’t know, I’ll explain it to you. We have a government called a democracy. (With a queen,) and basically a democracy is a type of government where a party is elected, and there is a leader of that party who we vote for, to become our prime minister, so we get a say in our leader. England and the U.S affected our government by Having a queen and democracy (England) and by having a constitution and federation (America.) Parliament is where politicians go to make laws. There are two houses. House of representatives, which has 150 representatives that are elected by Australian citizens of and senate.
We also have 3 levels of government. Federal, Which is for all of Australia. State, for our state. (Duh,) Local, for our suburb or city. Our queen who lives in the U.K is represented in Australia by the Governor general.
I also have a couple of questions. Like who is our local government, and who is our state government?
Summary: This BTN was about what democracy is, and the different types of govornment
Facts: Democracy dates back to ancient greece
There are absolute monarchies and just monarchies, so that means one’s stricter than the other.
Dictatorships are very unfair
Understandings: We have the fairest government.
Questions: If England isn’t an absolute monarchy then what is it?
Is there any other country with the same government to us?
Summary- This BTN was about what taxes are, why we have them, and how we are actually adding new ones, and people aren’t exactly happy about that.
Facts- Tax is basically just money that goes to whoever is in charge so for Australia that’s the government. They use this tax money to build things really important things .
Overall, we pay more than 100 different taxes each year between the state and federal governments.
There is a tax for saving up money for when you retire and things like health, fancy cars, petrol, and companies.
Questions- What exactly do taxes go towards?
What if people can’t afford to pay tax?
Understandings- I now understand what taxes are for, and why we have them.
The room was empty, apart from the goldfish, that swum slowly round in circles. Even though they were always slow, and you couldn’t see their mouth, they still seemed sad. If you pushed back the curtains there was a ladder, leading up to nothings but more darkness. The room was so sad, so dead, so- gone. , and Sadie missed them more than ever. Every night when her parents would be fighting and screaming, she would clamber out of the window, and fall into Jasmine’s arms, sobbing. Sadie closed her eyes, and flew to where Jasmine was, her dark brown eyes, her warming smile, But Sadie wasn’t in Jasmine’s house. she was in her own dimmed room, and all of her memories were just in her head.
Hello. A lot of people ask me why I’m friends with a grapefruit, and I’m here to tell you why. So one day, I was sitting in my room alone, because I had just moved into town, then I heard people screaming. At first I thought it was the TV because well, what else would it be? Then I saw the park and these dudes made out of sticks running. Everyone fled the town after that but since my mum didn’t hear (she was sleeping,) she woke up and told me to make some friends, But the only thing I could find was a grapefruit lying on the road. So that’s why I’m friends with Jackson. (The grapefruit.)
Hello everybody. My name is Heidi and before I start I’d just like to say that I don’t actually want to be an SRC rep.
First of all I think I am a great leader. I can get everyone’s attention and am not afraid to speak up, so if someone who’s not in SRC wants to idea of theirs, I’ll be happy to share it at the meetings. Another thing that makes me a great leader is that I listen to other people’s ideas, and I make sure everyone’s voices are heard.
I am very committed so if I got the role, I’d definitely put the meetings before hanging out with friends, and would try to go to all of them.
I am also very creative so I could probably think of some very great ideas to make the school a better place, and think of fund-raisers and fun activities but like I said earlier, I still include other people’s ideas.
So in summary, i think i am a great leader, i listen to other people’s ideas, I am committed, and I am creative. So that is why think i’d be a great SRC rep.
Note- Please don’t vote for me.
