Has anyone seen that movie? Delightful installment including dinosaurs and children somewhere in New York. I think. Or perhaps that’s a troll in Central Park, which includes the cutest troll I’ve ever seen. There’s a bridge by my house, on a one lane road, or what equates to a one lane road, and every time we used to drive over it my dad would say there were trolls under it. The trolls under the bridge came from the old story of the Billy Goats. Remember them? They wanted to cross the bridge but the trolls wouldn’t let them.
That’s all I actually remember from the billy goat story. But somehow, that story branched off into another, and that story branched off into another, and suddenly it became one that directly relates to me. Neat isn’t it? It’s why I love stories I think, you can relate to them. Anyways, tis J-term crew. What I have decided is the most amazing thing in the entire world. It’s low stress. Yes, low stress. I said it. Who would have thought Queen Stress-a-Lot says that this is low stress. You know it has to be.
Dr. Siopsis brought us banana muffins today, amazing things, and we played Jeopardy. Which my team, go Boots, won. Yep, start to a great day; guaranteed. Even better … there was snow on the ground. Which was scraped off the sidewalks, causing parts of it to melt which made ice. I did not eat it. That might be even more impressive than the Queen Stress-a-Lot deal.
We’ve already written our first paper, and Monday we have our first project type thing. I’m talking about the technology and science involved in nuclear energy. Fission peeps, fission. With Uranium 235, which is generally used in creating energy. There’s also Uranium 238 and Uranium 236, but those are less used isotopes. The problem with Uranium is that it has a very long half life, which is half the time the molecule is radioactive. Neat no? I’m excited.
In other news, tomorrow has been dubbed ice skating day. Me and Grace and a bunch of other peeps are going down to the Ice Chalet around 2:30. We’re going to wipe out, laugh about it, and take lessons in the whole getting back up and trying again deal. So, if you would like to come, wear multiple socks and a hat. You’ll be set. Tis loads of fun. But until then, do stay warm, have loads of fun in the snow, cause it really does rock, and please peeps, get your homework done.
And oh yes, Kudos to Owen and Jacob. Way to go getting the essays done guys. High five.
