I have been visiting lots of blogs recently, and I found a blog that I really like. That blog is Seb’s blog and I think it should be nominated for the Edublog Awards.
Why is Seb’s blog my favorite blog?
Even though the posts are quite short they are very interesting. And my favorite posts are “Once upon a Landscape”, “Fun Facts about France”, and “The Gaming Community.”
The post “Once upon a Landscape” is about a meteor crash with parasitical viruses outside from Earth. “Fun Facts about France” is also very interesting because through this post I learned some new facts about France that I didn’t know. The fact that I was really surprised was “In France, you can marry a dead person.”
I also like the post “The Gaming Community.” I am also a gamer, and in this post, I read about the history of games and arcade games. Seb also wrote about his gaming community in this post.
Even though these are my only favorite posts, there are Seb’s other posts that might interest you to read it.
If you don’t know what peer pressure is, peer pressure is when you see someone (usually a friend) doing something, and you are encouraged to do it, changing your behavior. Peer pressure can lead to beneficial things such as throwing trash in the nearest bin, comforting someone sad, respecting other people, etc. Peer pressure can also lead to harmful things, such as bullying, breaking objects when angry, etc., but is it more beneficial or harmful?
I personally think that peer pressure is more harmful than beneficial because I think people do harmful things like stealing, bullying, etc. more than beneficial things. Less people are doing beneficial things, but they still try to influence others not to do harmful things.
I have been affected by peer pressure, because some of my friends have a sense of humor, and I decided to joke just like they do, which is quite beneficial because I can talk to my friends better. Apparently, not just my level of humor has changed, but my behavior too. I have been more talkative than I used to, and sometimes I talk or procrastinate when the lesson is going on, which results in not finishing the work on time or disturbing the class, or even getting the points deducted and worse results, which is harmful. I have been trying to make myself quieter and pay attention to the teacher in the class, and talk when it’s not class time, but my friends sometimes still try to encourage me to talk during class time. Most of my friends do that, but they don’t when it’s something important such as an exam or test. Based on this, peer pressure is more harmful than beneficial. Harmful peer pressure can also create fights.
My behavior changes overtime because of peer pressure. Sometimes my behavior is bad, sometimes it’s good. I mostly try not to show bad behavior, because I get easily embarrassed and I might get a punishment. I am also trying to say no when someone wants me to do something bad.
If you want to stop other people being influenced by your bad behavior, you should also stop it. If you stop, other people might think that you have stopped that behavior because it’s not good, so they will also stop. For example, you like to insult other students in your school, which results in other students to insult you too. After thinking twice, you stop insulting because it’s harmful. Eventually, no more students will insult others.
What are your thoughts about peer pressure? Is it more beneficial or harmful? And why?
I am part of origami program in my school.
It is a group that meets every Tuesday afternoon after school.
In this club, our group of students from different grades learns how to make a variety of origami objects.
There are no rules in this club except being focused on task and completing it on time.
There are many benefits of learning origami like
Being in an origami club is a lot of fun because you create and exhibit many things, get appreciation from your group, and learn to get the solution from various approaches.

Soccer is one of my favorite sports of all time. I have been playing it since kindergarten and I still like it today. I usually played soccer during break/lunch time when I was 7. When I was 8, I joined the soccer after school activity. I lost interest in soccer when I was 9, but I got interested in it again at age 10. The reason why it’s my favorite sport is because it’s very fun and requires strategy.
One of my best soccer experiences was when I played soccer with adults when I was 10. I did a penalty kick and made a score for my team! Playing with adults was a little bit dangerous since they kick the soccer ball really hard and it’s easy to get hurt. The ball was hard, too.
There are rules in soccer, exactly 17 of them. But I will just tell you the basic rules of it.
The soccer field must be a rectangle, must have 2 goals, penalty lines, center circle, corner, sidelines, midline, and end lines. The field size depends on how many players are playing. The ball size depends on age, for ages 3-5, size 4 and 3 are used. For ages 6-12, size 4 is used. For ages 12-adult, size 5 is used. The number of players in each team must be the same, e.g. 7v7 (1 goalie and 6 players). If the number of players is not equal, the game won’t be fair. The maximum number of players is 11 (1 goalie and 10 players).
You are only allowed 3 subs per game, but the subs can be different for a modified game. Substitution is when one of your team mate changes with the other team mate, usually for strategies or the person is injured. Substitutions cannot be done when the ball is in play.
To start the game, the ball is placed in the center, and the team who kicks off must pass the ball to his team mate, after that, the game starts. When in game, the referee will blow his whistle to tell if there’s an infraction or offside. To score a point a team must goal the ball into the opposing team, this applies even when the ball is in the air.
The games are usually 90 minutes long. The time can be different, depending on age. Players cannot use their hands, only the goalie can. When the ball goes out of the field, the team that didn’t touch the ball last time will get a throw in.
The rules makes the game even more fun, and I hope now you know how to play soccer!
