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!

Book Review for The Hunger Games book one

Hello once again people who read this blog! So for the last few weeks I've been reading one of the more, um, "popular" books. Can you guess it? Yup, it's the Hunger Games. I'm assuming you know where I'm going with this, the whole "mom wanted me to do a book report on said book" thing. And you'd be correct! So, lets get on with the show. So the book is based sometime in the near future where America is no longer America, it's Panem. And also all the other countries apparently don't exist. The states have now been jumbled up and divided into things called "Districts", 12 each. There used to be 13, but we won't go into that. Every year the leaders/dictators of the country, which don't live in a District, organize an event known as the Hunger Games. They will choose 2 children, ages ranging from 12 to 18, from each District and they will be sent to a massive arena to fight eachother to the death. For the 74th annual Hunger Games, the main character (Katniss Everdeen) gets her younger sister Prim, who's only 12, voted into the Hunger Games. Devastated, Katniss offers to take Prim's place in the Hunger Games. She then steps up onto the stage, and her fellow male tribute Peeta Malarkey steps up to join her. Peeta actually saved Katniss's life years before when they were close to starving and he threw her some bread. For the next few days they spend their time fighting and grieving as they make their way to the Capitol. Once they reach it, they train for several more days to prepare for the Games. Oh yeah, and Katniss shoots an arrow at the judges pig. Good job! However, she surprisingly got a score of 11 despite her aggression. The day of the Games comes along, but if you haven't read the book I'll leave what happens next for you. I personally think it was a great book, however my mother begs to differ. It does have a dark and somewhat disgusting story line, but it's a good read none the less. If I had to pick a favorite character it would probably have to be Peeta, because he's smart and witty. I also felt a lot of pity for him. Poor guy. But all around it's a great book and I highly recommend it. The movie however, don't even bother. Well that's my report on the Hunger Games book 1. If you haven't read it then you really should, you might get a good kick out of it. Either that or you'll hate it. Opinions vary. I will see you all in the next blog post, so goodbye! End
