Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars

Date of showing:
Saturday 19th of June - 6.30 pm - Disney Channel

Movie Title:
Harriet The Spy: Blog Wars

Main Characters:
Harriet M. Welsh (played by Jennifor Stone from Wizards of Waverly Place.)

Harriet only dreams of becoming a world famous writer. This term she has her heart set on becoming the new class blogger. But she's not the only one, two words, Marion Hawthorn.
It's a blog war, and Harriet isn't winning, so she sets her focus on the hottest teen around, Skander Hill.
This family-fun movie tells the tale of friends, family and following your dreams. It shows that being popular isn't important, its the people you love who matter.
I would defiantly recommend it to you.

Check out Dance Academy on ABC 1 every weekday from 5.20pm. Even if you are not a big fan of dancing, you will still enjoy this delightful show and be inspired yourself, and know I sure was.

Try getting your hands on a copy of 'Miles to Go' by Miley Cyrus. In this Autobiography, Miley tells you challenges that she has faced, mountains she has concurred, and tells you about fun, friends, and family.

I awake to the sound
of birds singing.
Of laughing Kooka's
and alarms ringing.

I see the sun,
come up from the mountains.
It shines like day,
and gleams like fountains.

The air is still,
yet has a cool breeze.
It reminds me of happiness,
and a calming ease.

I sit up straight
and take it all in.
A perfect morning,
makes me want to sing.

My Mummy

I know someone special,

she's nice, and happy.

She raised me and loved me,

and that person is my mummy.

Whenever I'm upset, lonely and angry,

my mum is always there.

To care for me and comfort me

and stroke me by the hair.

Her hugs and her kisses.

are loving and sweet.

And when she smiles, it warms the heart,

and our hugs our now complete.

(I love you mummy)

True Friend

A life without a friend,
is like I life without a home.
You feel frightened, worried, broken,
and most importantly, alone.

A friend is like a family,
loving and sweet.
They only want what's best for you,
and give you the feeling of feat.

But when you find the one true friend,
there is nothing that you can't do.
They're like a sister, best friends forever,
and you love them as much as they love you.

And when the time comes,
for you to say goodbye,
They will always remember you,
and the friendship will never die.

And then you know,
through thick and thin,
You've got a true friend.

Winter Time

Winter time has finally come,
so say goodbye to the hot summer sun.

We snuggle up to the fire place,
drinking hot cocoa in our own warm place.

Although its the season for cold and flu,
resting in bed is the best thing to do.

But as one small flower begins to grow,
Winter has got to go.

(This is one of the poems I wrote around this time last year.)

Save the Orangutan

Orangutans are an excellent creature. We share 97% of our DNA with them, which makes them our closest 'wild' relative. They live in the Oil Palm tree, which is the same plant in which Palm Oil is produced from.

Palm Oil is a regularly used product found in 50% of products found on the supermarket shelves. It is hardly ever labeled 'Palm Oil,' for it is usually labeled 'Vegetable Oil.' If you are eating something labeled 'Vegetable Oil,' there is a 70% chance that you are eating 'Palm Oil.' Complicated, isn't it? Not really.

In South East Asia alone, the equivalent of 300 football fields are deforested every hour. Amazing, isn't it, in a bad way.

So ask yourself, can I help? I hop the answer is yes, because if we continue at this rate, all Orangutans will be extinct by the year 2023. This means you children, and your grandchildren may never get to see one in the whole lifetime. That's horrible!

Welcome to my blog. My name is Rebecca.

To start things off, I would like to thank my mother for helping me with this. She was the one who inspired me to do this blog, and she showed me the website and everything. Without her, this blog would still be somewhere on my 'To Do' list.

This blog is basicly my writing and art. I write stories, poems, and even reviews about books, movie, etc. I feel writing is a very important skill to have, so I try to write as often as I can. Same with drawing. Do you feel that way too?

I am very keen on getting safe and sensible comments, so please feel free to leave them.

Stay tuned, there will be plenty more coming soon.
