Have I changed as a writer? :D

  I never really liked to write, and neither was I good at it. It’s hard to use the right vocabulary, to make sure the grammar is correct, and that the finished work are smooth to read. Ever since I came here at 6th grade, grade 9 English class is definitely where I wrote the [...]

  At the beginning of the year, when Mr. Macknight told us that we have to do independent everyday and keep record of it, I thought I’d never make it. It’s not like I hate to read, but let’s just say that reading isn’t exactly my favourite thing to do of the day. Sometimes, I [...]

Portia's speech :D

To be honest, I’ve never done any project like this before, I’m not good at acting, and neither do I like it. Though I was really nervous when I performed in front of the others, and forgot my lines half way, I found out that by memorizing and performing the speech, I could actually [...]
