to be human by Sia September 14, 2017

For this project i was partners with piper we chose to read  To Be Human by Sia. we used pipers computer to record in garage band.To be human is about how part of being human to love and to feel the pain of loving. This song  is about wanting to let go but pushing your self to keep holding on.

To Be Human -Sia

 

Under rich, relentless skies

I’ve been setting highs

I felt you walk right through me

You’re the thing that I invoke

My all persistent goal

Sent to make me queasy 

 

 And though it’s hard now

With time, it works out

 

To be human is to love

Even when it gets too much

I’m not ready to give up

To be human is to love

Even when it gets too much

I’m not ready to give up

 

All the tigers have been out

I don’t care, I hear them howl

I let them tear right through me

Can you help me not to care?

Every breath becomes a prayer

Take this pain from me

 

And though you’re so far now

So far from my arms now

 

To be human is to love

Even when it gets too much

I’m not ready to give up

To be human is to love

Even when it gets too much

I’m not ready to give up

 

To be human

To be human

To be human

 

Just ’cause I predicted this

Doesn’t make it any easier to live with

And what’s the point of knowin’ it

If you can’t change it?

You can’t change, can’t change it

Just ’cause I predicted this

Doesn’t make it any easier to live with

And what’s the point of knowin’ it

If you can’t change it?

You can’t change, can’t change it

 

To be human is to love

Even when it gets too much

I’m not ready to give up

To be human is to love

Even when it gets too much

There’s no reason to give up

 

Don’t give up

Don’t give up

Who am I December 6, 2016

Who am I
I am a unique and special person with my own ideas and opinions about life. What you truly want in the world will never come easy. When life seems to be looking down that is when you have to be strong enough to realize the good things in life. I’m Maranda that is my name that is a part of who am. I am the second youngest of 4 children.
I would not be myself without my passion for art and creating is I have sold about 8 pieces. Another thing that I would not be myself without is my family. But my personality is a lot different from the rest of my family’s I am more of a person who likes to be alone and not communicate with others. My hobbies are kuk sool Won which is a type of martial arts from Korea and basketball and softball.
Not only is my personality different from most people but so is my physical appearance. when I walk my feet are bent out so it looks as if I walk like a bird or penguin. This is just one of the things that makes me unique in my own way. Another is that I am left handed so it is a little bit more difficult to write because I always smudge my work.

Compared to other people I have to work a lot harder in school to get to where I want to go. This can be seen easily by me always having lots of binder to bring home. In life I always work harder than most people whether it’s in school or sports.once I have decided to do something I won’t give up on it even if I’m not good at it I will work to get better ,whether it’s doing extra work in math or going to the shop to work on my basketball skills.
When I graduate high school I will be 17. Once I graduate I will go for my Bachelor of sciences or 2 years then go for my degree in nursing. These courses will take me at least 4 years in total depending on the different level of nurse I want to be. But my goal is to be a paediatric nurse so I can work to save kids and get them better. Some people might think I will never have good enough grades to become a nurse but I do and that is all that matters. Don’t let others dull your sparkle.

Impossible April 6, 2016

the impossible possible?

Is it possible for the impossible to be possible?. well personally i think that the impossible is  possible because impossible spells i’m possible which means that it is possible.impossible is another word for i’m to lazy or it’s to hard to do and i give up or we tried  to solve the problem but haven’t been able to so people just simple say it is impossible.
The impossible it is something that has never been done so it seems impossible. “There is nothing impossible to him who will try” Alexander the Great.the only way to make something impossible is to think of it that way and by doing that you only make it impossible to yourself. So you are the only one who it is impossible to do or think .you might be too stubborn to realize that it is not impossible it just might be really hard but not impossible.
If the impossible is possible wouldn’t that mean the possible was once impossible. For example the idea of wireless phones would have been seen as impossible. Let’s take a moment to thank all the people who invented the things today that we would not be able to live without. if these people like martin cooper (inventor of the cell phone) or thomas edison some of these things might not have been invented.
