                                                    Pause for a moment and reflect

AI head to the dusty large basketball courts, I start to think to think about what I have been doing in my life. Over the weekend all I have been doing is staying home playing fortnite, and watching YouTube. I finally realized that this isn’t a good way to spend my time so I knew I had to go outside. As I kept on walking to my ten minute destination the wind started to blow and dust started getting into my eyes. I kept on thinking about my time management and how I will need that in high school. When I finally took a left after walking straight for ten minutes I finally arrived at the park. Seeing the red and blue slides and the dark red mulch I was in awe. I finally entered the courts and played basketball with a couple kids for about an hour. I played a total of three games and my teams record was 2-1. On my way home the sky was not happy as it started to pour things we call water. Like I did on my way to the park I was not able to reflect on my future while heading home because I was too distracted on not getting my cellular device wet. All in all I am very happy that I left the house as I was able to explore my thoughts and explore my future.

Agree that Fortnite and Youtube can unknowingly take up a lot of time and lead us to miss out on being outside. Nice post.

I agreed that taking a walk through nature can really make you reflect. I liked the raining sentence.


This is a great post. Being outside really does help one’s thinking. Nice post!

Wow Fru I greatly relate with what you said bout how we should spend more time outside. Nice.


This is great becuase it is really well written and has a great overall theme. I try to do this myself but usually get caught up.

This was really good. I can also relate to spending too much time on devices, and I thought you used great imagery. Great job.

Wow Fru this is really good. I relate to spending too much time on devices and I think it is important to give them up and go to a park or something. Great job overall.

Fru I like the way you describe the basketball courts. You used many descriptive adjectives. Good job!

McCliff Metellus

I really like the picture I also like the first sentence and how much detail you used.


Fur good job, I liked how you described the basketball courts. It help me put an image in my mind of where you really were. Although, I feel like you could’ve added a quote at the beginning to intrigue people to read mode.
