Game Time! – SBC week 8

Hi guys, I’m back to writing a post for the student blogging challenge. This took me a lot of procrastinating to convince myself to write this. If you didn’t know, it’s actually the school holidays where I live. But since I enjoy student blogging so much (and I have no social life), I decided I might as well do it! So today, I’m doing game 1, count out 3. I decided it might be fair if I did student, class, student blog so it’ll kind of be even. Anyway, that took too long and let’s begin!



FIRST (student blog)

attempt #1 (fail)

I went on the March student list and saw this (I presumed it was a ) girl. Next to her website it said ROBLOX and drawing anime. Instantly I clicked on it but unfortunately, there was no blogroll on Alaina’s blog.


attempt #2 (fail, again)

Ah yes, you read right. Fail again. So I scrolled a bit until I stumbled a crossed Alai’s blog. Again, it was her interest that captured me. It said “making slime and playing games”, and oh boy, do I love slime. I just realised how similar their names were… I guess we should move on to hopefully a more successful blog!


attempt #3 (fail.)

Today is just not my day… I clicked on Indie’s blog most likely because it’s name was in capitals.


attempt #4

(no caption) J.K MEOWling’s blog. (I love the name)


[skipped a lot of other failed attempts]


attempt #102 (this is no joke my 100th time)

Then after a billion years, I finally found one… Quin’s blog. You do not know how excited I am!!1!1!11! This blog is overall very nicely set out and I think you should check it out!


I clicked on Cameron’s blog because it had a long nice name. The first post I read was very funny. I didn’t comment because I’m on a time frame. ūüôĀ


I finally come my destination… Ben’s blog. He’s commented on my blog a LONG time ago but I never got back to him because I got told off while I was typing my comment (aka I got caught). So um yes, this perfect. PLUS I picked this blog not only because of the previous reason but it mentioned animal (“ben’s animal”).


This is the POST I commented on.

And this is what I commented:

Hi Ben,
I’m getting back a bit late but you commented on my rant about my brother post and I never got back to you. Sorry. I think chickens look very cute in the photos you took there but I have had some brutal experience with them. This is probably why I hate birds of any type and scared I’m going to get pecked to death by one of them. Do they have names? If so, what are their names?

Happy blogging,
Figgy x

p.s here’s the link to my blog if you’d like to comment again,

here’s the link to my little rant about my annoying brother! Ahehe, shameless self promotion.



SECOND (class blog)

attempt #1

Mrs. Motley’s class blog. I went on her blog and saw she only has one post. It doesn’t look like she’s active anymore…


attempt #2

This didn’t take as long as the student blog one and one my 2nd try I found Mrs. Moore’s class blog. I took only a quick glance at her blog (because I was getting inpatient) and it was very tidy and organised.


Then I came to Mrs. Yollis class blog. I couldn’t read very clearly but I did find another class blog to go to.


Finally I came to Miss Jordan’s class blog. It was very clear to see since it was on edublogs default. I enjoyed this blog very much.

This is the POST I commented on:

This is what I commenetd:

Hi Miss Jordan and the class,
Even though I‚Äôve been at Australia for nearly 7 years, I still don‚Äôt know much facts about it. I decided I was going to take the koala 2 truth 1 lie by Annabel and Eliza. I think that the statement ‚Äúkoalas are bears‚ÄĚ aren‚Äôt real. I know for a fact that they have 2 thumbs and I believe that habitat loss is the biggest threat.

Happy blogging,
Figgy xx

THIRD (student blog)


attempt #1 (let’s hope for the best)

So I’ve learnt my lesson. I should stick with 11 (which is my age) and up. This way I have more hope of finding someone that has a blog roll. I came across Claire’s blog. Her blog was very cute but the font was too big for me personally. Also, she did not include a blog roll.


attempt #2 (cross your fingers)

Once again, it’s a fail. It was Lucy’s blog.


attempt #3 (cross your toes now)

Yay! It’s successful for once, I finally stumbled upon a blog that has a blogroll. The blog was Kayleigh’s. Her blog was very cute and organised.


Then I came upon Ella’s blog. Even though the link on Kayleigh’s blog was wrong, I pulled through. Her blog was so easy to read and I just loved it! Of course, I didn’t comment because I was rushing.


Andddd, we came back to Kayleigh’s blog. I’m not sure if this counts but the other link (which was Maddie’s blog) didn’t work either so I just came back to Kayleigh’s blog.


This is the POST I commented on.

This is the comment itself:

Hi Kayleigh,

Your avatar is really cute! What website did you to make it? Your pet pig and hamster are also really adorable! Especially the names, the rhymes are incredibly creative. Do you have any pets in real life?

Happy blogging,
Figgy xx

Ben replied! This is what he replied:

Hi Figgy,

Thanks for visiting my blog! Yes, my family has named three of the four. The names are, Princess, Sarge (I know it’s a wierd name, it wasn’t my Idea!), and Henrieta. We are still Indecisive on the fourth name and how we are going to tell each one apart. Also, sorry about your experience with birds of this type.



And this is what I replied:

Hello Ben,

That’s some cute names! Do they have a breed?

Really Weird Conspiracy Theory – Student Blogging Challenge week 7

Hi! I’m going to be taking David’s advice and writing something that interest me, conspiracy theories. I found them extremely interesting since they make you think about “what if”s… Conspiracy theories are all about the “maybe”s and “if”s because nothing is proven by scientists and we can’t be sure if they’re real.


For example what if oxygen is actually an illusion and once we don’t have it, our views go black! This all makes sense! Once we don’t oxygen, we black out. Maybe this is all fake and nothing is real. Maybe you’re being kept by aliens for experiments. Ok, the last one was a bit crazy but there’s so much more to this world that we don’t know! Sometimes, some of them are bizarre but you can’t help think about what if it’s real?


The theories might have a bit of logic or “proof” behind them or otherwise why would some of us¬† believe in them! One famous conspiracy theory (that I personally don’t believe in but I kind of do believe in) is aliens. Almost every space movie has aliens because they are believed to live in space! This kind of misleading because we don’t actually know if it lives in space NOR do we know if it even exist!


I hope you’ve enjoyed one of my weird “interests”. They really fascinate me and I believe in a lot of stuff even if the chances are 0.001 to 0, as long if it has some logic and proof behind. This is a article about 10 famous conspiracy theories in the USA, I don’t live there so I read it and I guess it’s like one of those

Thank you for reading!

QOTB: what’s one conspiracy theory you believe in?

Nelson R Mandela was a South African who took part in the anti-apartheid revolutionary and served as a president for 5 years, 1994-1999. He was a positive influence on the world and strived to change the world in a good way. Mandela was a respected president. He was born on the 18 July 1918 and unfortunately passes away on 5 December 2013 (age 95). Here are some of my favourite quotes from him, enjoy!

Education is the most powerful way to change the world. – Nelson Mandela

I Don’t Like Pizza. – Student Blogging Challenge Week 5

What’s the big deal about pizza? It looks disgusting, tastes disgusting and smells disgusting. I’ve tried pizza once in a life and it was horrendous!


Let’s start off with the crust.

The crust, an essential to pizza. Crust is like bread by it self. It’s all good until they stuff cheese and other stuff IN the crust. Without the crust, there’s no pizza. This is “story” that will¬†disgust¬†you!


The toppings.

First of all, why do people put ketchup on the crust? Ketchup is disgusting itself! The most common toppings on pizza are¬†(ketchup,) pepperoni, cheese, ham, tomatoes, mushroom and a lot of others. Pepperoni, I’m not going to say much because I actually like it myself but mixed with pizza? Ew. Then cheese, I personally hate cheese by itself but on pizza? That basically took it to a whole new disgusting level. And tomatoes. There’s already ketchup on the pizza, it’s like putting tomato on tomato juice. Honestly, it’s really the ketchup that disgust me.



Lastly, the names.

Some names are pretty creative if I say so myself BUT Hawaiian pizza isn’t one of them. According to my research (I know I actually did research) , ‘Hawaiian’ pizza didn’t even originate from Hawaii! In fact (Wikipedia) it came from Canada. Also, pineapple on pizza? No, no for me.


Overall, I hope you enjoyed this little rant about pizza. Sorry for it being kind of short as I was in a rush but I still hope you enjoyed!



QOTB (question of the blog): What’s your favourite pizza/topping?



Chess Secret – 200 Words Challenge

It seemed hopeless!¬†How am I suppose to beat Natalie¬†in chess? My name is Vanessa¬†and my specialty is sprinting, I’ve¬†inherited¬†my mum genes. But sprinting wasn’t going to¬†benefit¬†me this time. You see, Natalie was the¬†founder¬†of the¬†Chess Club¬†and she is the BEST at chess in the whole school, and I mean it by whole school. No teacher has ever beat her in chess.¬†And to make it worse, the match is¬†tomorrow¬†at lunch!¬†




I was¬†foolish¬†enough to spill the beans. What’s my secret you might be wondering? Well, I’m not the person I¬†portray¬†to be. In school, I’m this tomboy but on the inside? I’m¬†just as girlish as any of¬†my¬†other female classmates.

As I was eating my sandwich, I was thinking of ways to beat her in chess. Hold up… I DON’T EVEN KNOW THE RULES OF CHESS! How was I suppose to beat her now? My brain was even more¬†chaotic¬†than usual. A image of dad appeared in my head. I know! My dad’s a¬†professional¬†at chess, surely he can help!¬†


That afternoon I went home beaming. In dinner, I told mum and dad what happened. They said I¬†shouldn’t¬†worry about it and just be true to yourself. I suggested dad could tutor me but he¬†instantly¬†shook his head as a sign of no. I couldn’t believe it! My one hope, slowly fading away in the darkness…¬†


The next morning, I emotionally prepare myself for failure. I honestly don’t care what people think about me anymore… At lunch, I lost but¬†genuinely¬†I’m not¬†bitter. In fact, I’m happy! After everyone knew the “secret”, they started opening up to me. Remind me to¬†thank¬†Natalie!¬†
