Everest: the collage

I chose Everest to be the topic topic of my collage. This is a story of how a blind man climbed Mt. Everest. This is a story of determination and belief in oneself, so that is pretty much the topic of my collage. The lion in particular is my favorite picture, because it pretty much sums up the point of this story. Bravery, Determination, and the will to do the impossibe was brimming out of Eric Weihenmayer's very flesh when he climbed Everest, and many other mountains besides.

Digger wasp!

Well, I have to write a post about what animal I would rather study, a Tarantula or a Digger Wasp. In truth, I would have to say the Digger Wasp, because I've never heard of it before. From the article I had to read about it, I now know that Digger Wasps live solitary lives instead of in colony's. This, above all, surprised me, because I have never heard of a kind of wasp (or bee) that lives on its own before. The article also says that the wasps dig two foot tunnels in the ground, each about the width of a quarter. I have but one thing to say about this: I hope I never come near one of those horrid things.....

The most challenging...

I have to write a post about the most challenging thing I've ever done. That's a really good question, since I don't do a lot of challenging stuff. I would have to say that woking out for the past few months has been the most challenging thing I've ever done, because I have been pushing myself to my limit Bench Pressing....

One of the things that has very much influenced my choice of my future career is the television. I watch a lot of shows like Cops and World's Wildest Police Video's, and they have inspired me to become a police officer. I realize that most cops don't get to experience all the stuff they have on those shows, but it is still a very productive career. I actually went to a career expo in Green Bay today, and I got the chance to talk to a state trooper. He explained to me all the qualifications to be a police officer, like having 60 college credits (about two years,) and the training and stuff. What he had to say only increased my desire to be a policeman, so I'm really happy I got to go to that career expo!
