Can Virtual Reality replace Actual Reality?

Have you heard or even tried the virtual lens? The ones that allow you to go to a new destination except you’re not actually there. I tried them on for the first time in class a few days ago. You’re basically being brought to an animated destination thanks to some lens. It’s very surreal because,…

The Dark History

I’m a first generation Canadian, and I’ve arrived here almost a decade ago. Throughout the years I’ve learned Canadian history – the dark history. Residential schools is a famous one, I’m assuming you’ve heard of it. They were built to remove the First Nation’s culture and traditions! I’ve watched and read stories of survivors and its devastating….

Advanced Technology

Over the past several decades, the world has experienced a new era of growth and prosperity. Technology – whether it is medicine or electronics, we have come a long way. The trend in the 21st century is to have an iPhone, or any sort of device whether it is an iPad, iPod, or Tablet. Different…

Back for Sophomore Year

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. This semester, I’ll be sharing some posts throughout the weeks, whether it’s new experiences, or stories I’d like to share. Like last year, I’ll try to be consistent with my posts. Last year was my first year of high school. It was a year to explore the ways of…

My blog’s Audit

Ever since I’ve started blogging, I’ve had a new experience with the blogging community. At the beginning of March, I’ve learned many new ways to blog all thanks to my teacher, the student blogging challenges, and my classmates.

Do I approve of my Digital Footprint?

I’m a typical teenage girl that is most likely to have social media. That doesn’t mean I want my identity to be shared through the web. You’re probably thinking “Then what’s the point of having social media?”. The thing is, I’m very introverted online and in real life. I don’t want to be an oversharer…

The problems of Racism

Racism is a harsh topic for many because of past experiences. I, myself, have been through some racism throughout my life. When I was younger, I was an extreme introvert because I became self conscious of myself because of people making “jokes” of my appearance. As I grew up, the racist acts slowly went away…

Are we too dependent on Technology?

How many of you would probably not survive more than a week without their phones, laptops, iPads, you name it. I’ll say at least 80% of the population. I can’t blame you because I would probably feel the same way. Although my social life is not strong, I’ve had my share of texting rather than…

Nature and Global Warming

When we hear the word nature, we would think the four season(Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter). Some people would think of global warming or the disasters that nature has cost. In the end, is nature valuable, if so, how valuable?  In my opinion, yes, because nature is something that has been with for billions of years,…

Creating a DoppelMe avatar

Yay! I finally made an avatar! I tried making the avatar look like me as best as possible, but there were some parts did not turn out as good as I wanted it to. My hijab and abaya describe my sense of fashion since I love wearing because it suits me. I chose the night-time…

Good Comments vs. Bad Comments

  Have you ever thought about how your comment could describe who you are as an online user? Many people do not care about how their comments could impact how people see them as an online user. Some are professional while others use slangs. Bad comments can lead to spam and other problems while good…
