Why I Should Get A Ferret

 Hello once again people who read this blog! So I have an interesting subject today. For MONTHS I have been wanting to get a Ferret, for many reasons which would take me forever to describe. But my mother refuses to let me get one. I'm going to attempt to "persuade" her through this post, even though I know any and all efforts are pointless. But I'm gonna get an A for effort!

My love for Ferret's has been lingering around ever sense I held one around 10 months ago. A lady at my Church just so happened to be selling some, and I got to get in the pen and hold a few. There was this one absolutely adorable Ferret there by the name of Bear. I wanted to take him home and love him and squeeze him and hold him and kiss him and hug him and I might've just named him George. But alas, my mother said no. With tears in my eyes, I said farewell to Bear a few hours later, and I will most likely never see him again. Ever sense I have been politely nagging her to get me a ferret. I mean, they're the perfect pet! They're playful, very intelligent, friendly and not too big. They also don't require very much maintenance. According to the lady, the only downside to them is that they "smell weird". They sure smelled fine to me! However, there is also the fact that we own two dogs. Which I'm sure would gladly take any ferret, stuff it into a hotdog bun and have it for lunch. That wouldn't be good. But other then that, they're the perfect pet! Happy, playful, fun, caring. The whole package!

So my question is to you. Do you think Ferrets are good pets? Do you think they're bad pets? Do you think we should start a strike to convince mom to help me/let me get a Ferret? (The proper answer to that one is yes.) Opinions may vary.

Well, that's my post on why I should get a Ferret. I hope you agree with me and you might even get one too! And make sure to name him George.
The End.

Writing Assignment: My Thanksgiving trip to New York!

Hello once again people who read this blog! Man it's been awhile sense I've done one of these. Probably because I've been out of state for the last few weeks visiting New York for the first time sense I was, like, 4. 10 years ago. Imagine that. So naturally whenever something awesome happens mother dearest wants me to write a report on it. She told me to think of it as a diary of some sort. So that's exactly what I'm gonna do. Dear Diary.. kidding. So without further ado, here's my report on my adventure to New York! So at about this time 3 weeks ago I was sitting in an airport waiting for my flight which would take off 3 hours from now. And I had already been waiting 3 hours. That was fun. However, I did have my dad (who was going with me) to keep me company through 6 hours of remote boredom. Within those 6 hours Dad bought a T-Shirt, I read some books, we watched a live band, and looked at some fish. When it finally became time to board our flight, we scampered on (And I was certain that I was going to die on this flight) and took our seats. After a few minutes of silence, apart from the several people cramming their luggage into their compartments, we were finally greeted by the nice jolt of speed required to get up in the air. And there we sat for another 3 hours. YAY I JUST LOVE WAITING! Now I'm just gonna skip to landing because nothing special or exciting happened during this time. But I will say this: If you've never flown before, make sure to use the restroom BEFORE you get on. Because the Airplane restrooms will suck you and your soul into oblivion with them. No joke. Once we touched done, we were greeted by nice 15 degree weather. Welcome to New York. We towed our luggage off to the rental car, which I like to refer to as the Smurf Mobile. I don't even remember what kind of car it was, a Honda maybe, but I do remember it being a very vivid color of blue. I hated it. It couldn't have been Navy Blue? Or Sky Blue? Or black? Nope. Smurf Blue. So we drove our Smurfmobile away from the Airport and made our way for my Aunts house. When we arrived, I was greeted by a German Shepherd poking its head out the doggy door barking at me like I was lunch. When we managed to get past the beast known as Skylar, I got to see my Cousins and Aunt for the first time sense I was 4. It's so weird thinking about how the last time I saw my oldest cousin, Aimee, she was using a pacifier and her younger brother Jack wasn't even a thing yet. And as you could guess it was awesome to see my Aunt as well. We stayed the first night at their house, staying up till Midnight playing Mario Kart and Super Mario Bros. Wii. Fun times. When we woke up we said our goodbyes (for now) and headed off for my Grandpa and Grandma's house. It was an awesome ride, and I got so see something rare and very majestic. HILLS. You don't see such landscape in Florida where everything is just flat. And it was awesome because my grandparents live on a mountain. When we reached their house, I was amazed by how open it was. It was like their own little plateau, kinda. They had a farm, ponies, chickens, goats, a wood workshop, the whole nine. Ok so I need to speed this up because I'm putting WAY too much thought into this. At this rate, it'll take me 80 hours writing about a 2 and 1/2 week long trip. When we went inside I was greeted by my awesome Grandpa Ed and Grandma Regina, and their 3 amazing dogs Buddy, Toby and JoJo. Buddy and Jojo were Sheltys, and Toby was a Collie puppy. My Grandpa and Grandma are just amazing people, and hilarious at that. One of the amazing things about my Grandma is she said I can help myself to anything and if I need anything to just ask. Just as a joke I said "Hmm, some brownies would be nice. Just kidding I'm fine." 10 minutes later, BOOM! Brownies fresh from the oven. It was beautiful. Now I feel like I'm gonna cut this all up into a slop, but for the next week and a half we pretty much ran around all over Northern New York. We went to a trampoline park where my Dad nearly killed himself (hilariously), I met more relatives then I even knew about, went up to a massive mountain and looked all over New York, had an awesome Thanksgiving, watched cartoons with my other Aunt, visited my old house, played ball with Buddy for hours, SAW SNOW FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 11 YEARS, failed terribly at making a snowman, and so, so much more. Sorry if that's not very descriptive but I need to go do other school. All in all, my trip to New York was absolutely amazing and I wouldn't trade it for the world. The End.

Persuasive Post: Don't put up Christmas lights for the holiday season!

Hello once again people who read this blog! So it's almost Christmas time already. Man, how the year has flown by. It's right around the time where people will start hanging up the Christmas decorations and lighting up their front yards. Well I'm here today to explain to all of you why you SHOULDN'T decorate your house with or yard with Christmas lights this holiday season!

I'm going to give you 3 simple reasons why you shouldn't hang up lights for Christmas.

Reason #1: Your electric bill is going to soar! Just think about it. For a whole month, every night, you're going to have hundreds of lights on outside that will be serving no purpose other then looking pretty and absorbing electricity. You're really going to be giving more of a Christmas present with that massive bill to your electric company then your eyes.

Reason #2: All those colors can't be healthy for your eyes. Nowadays, people sell several kinds of Christmas lights for your delight. The more normal ones are plain lights that just light up and sit there. That's it. Nothing fancy shmansy. However, even those can hurt your eyes if they're the really bright ones that look like a miniature sun on every cord. But some of these lights can be set to flash at up to 1,000,000 miles an hour. These lights are very seizure inducing, and can cause a person to get a seizure which could be fatal. Around 1 out of, what, 7 billion people a year get a seizure from such lights. That's one more person then there needs to be! Also, you could go blind. Then you won't get to see the lights at all, now will you?

Reason #3: They're SO stressful! Quite a few people get injured every year from Christmas decorations. Whether its from the lights exploding, falling off of buildings to land on you, or YOU falling off a building to land on the ground, there's often one decorating accident for every town in every state in every country of the world. It's a pretty big deal. All I'm trying to do is warn people of such a thing.

So now that I've given my speech, I hope I have convinced atleast someone to avoid the death (and debt) traps that are Christmas lights. Together, we can stop these monstrosities from taking over our cities and take back our electric bills!!

The End

Haunted House Persuasive Writing Be The Realtor

Hello once again people who read this blog! I have decided to take a change in my career, and today I'm going to be selling a house. Now I know the looks of this house are a little.. discouraging, but I assure you it's OK! Hang on, let me go into detail.

The house was originally built in 1852, and has a lot of history attached to it. You see, an elderly woman used to live in the house. She used to report strange noises and even floating objects during her time of living there. Then again, she was around 90 years old. Who knows what else she might've seen. So I'm sure there's nothing to worry about!

Wanna buy it? No? Umm but hang on there's more! The house has 3 stories, complete with an attic and basement, along with a wine cellar inside the basement. It has a built in piano which is attached to the wall, incase you might know how to play. Don't worry, it's not one of those creepy pianos that play themselves. I think.

The backyard is fairly nice as well. The grass is all dead for some reason, but I'm sure with the right plant food it'll grow nice and beautifully! There's also a large strip of wilderness in the backyard, good for hunting during deer season! I hear there's a creepy old cottage somewhere in there. Be cool to go exploring, eh?

The house itself comes with 8 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 1 dining hall. As well as 2 living rooms. There's also large windows everywhere to let natural light in, but you'll need to clean away the several inches thick cobwebs and repair the broken glass first.. No big deal.

 Well that's a basic rundown of the house. I could go through the rest, but what's the point of buying a new house if you can't explore right? Right? RIGHT?
Overall the house costs 50,000 dollars. I'll leave you to discuss whether or not you're interested, while I go investigate an odd noise I heard.
Yeah the house can be pretty rickety at times because it's, you know, kinda old. Also- Wait is that a person? Hello? Oh hi friend! Is.. Is that a knife you're holding? Sir, sir what are you doing? SIR?-

George Washington

Hello once again people who read this blog! So I've been reading a lot of American History lately, and I've been assigned with writing a moderately sized report on my favorite historic person. Now, this only qualifies for this time period. So I chose George Washington. I chose Washington for 3 main reasons. He's moderately easy to remember information about, he's one of our Founding Fathers, and he lived a pretty interesting life. So with that said, onto the report!

Washington was born in 1732 Westmorelerd County, Virginia and has 6 siblings. Two of his siblings managed to reach maturity. The other 4.. weren't so lucky. His father also died when he was 11, and his half-brother became his "father/role model". At the age of 15 he wanted to join the Royal Navy, but his mother objected. As we all know, he went to join the military later on and got his first taste of battle in the French Indian War. He described it as bloody and disturbing, yet invigorating and beautiful at the same time. At least 2 bullets grazed his head during this fight, and they ended up having to retreat. But Washington had gotten his taste of war. He liked it. He wasn't going anywhere.

As we all know, Washington later on became a very high rank in the military and served a great role in the Revolutionary War. But after the war, George Washington went on to become the first president of the United States! Many years later however, Washington died peacefully in his sleep. I forget what age he was.
Want some more interesting facts about George? Try these on for size.
Washington was the only Founding Father to actually free his slaves. I actually find this quite admirable, especially for a man of his time.
He was also the only President to NOT live in Washington D.C. Perhaps because it was named after him.
Infact, around 32 countries and 17 cities were also named in his honor! Give or take a few.
He also introduced the mule to America. Hooray for donkeys!

Well, that's my report on George Washington. I hope you learned something new, because I learned a little too much. Until the next post, goodbye!

The End
