Poetry Time #2

Here is another poem that I made for my Teacher, adviser, and a big sister,

Ms. Dennehy

A woman of music and integrity
The best Choral Director-Full of Authority
Transcendent, Gentle, and Smart
Traits that can never be bought at Walmart

She wears glasses, contacts, and has majestic eyes
Whenever I am in her class, my voice says Hi to the skies
Her voice is like pure Sunshine
warm, sweet, and vibrant-God's Design

Her Philosophy is a university
A community, working together-Full of diversity
With her, the Choir is Alive!
Tenors-Bright, Altos-Dark, Sopranos-High, Basses-Thrive

But who is she outside the class?; the inner
A loving daughter and A Legitimate Singer
She enjoys singing, dancing, and acting
A triple threat, like a powerful bullet-piercing 

She loves to cook; chopping here, whacking that
Humming and waiting on the oven's spat.
This is Ms. Dennehy: a Little Angel! That's a fact!: half rest
"Live, Love, Laugh!" I only want to say, She's the Best!                                                 -Edgar Allan Not Poe

Poetry Time #1

"Nyan Nyan" says the cat! hmmm...
I'm quite bored doing
all this work and studying.
Then, I was like: ha! I should share a poem.
This is my English B30 poetry
 assignment about describing someone that I know.
I chose my Math teacher due
to his passion for teaching and dedication
 to make his students learn.
 t turned to be great! my English teacher lo
ved it and so did my Math teacher. Enjoy!

Mr. Blanke

A man of knowledge and power
The best Math teacher-The Man of the Hour
Confident, Passionate, and Bold
His jokes and antics; never gets old

He is bald, wears glasses, and has intense eyes
Whenever I am in his class, my mind never reaches the skies
His voice is like thunder
Strong and powerful like the Boy Wonder

His Philosophy is a warzone
Fight hard, do well, and you are all alone
With him, Math is exciting
Everyone is listening, and no one is murmuring.

But who is he outside class?; the inner
A family man-A True Winner
He loves his kids and has a trophy wife
Farms with passion-a beautiful lifeHe loves pimping his sprayer; cranking here, whacking that
Humming and whistling with his John Deere hat.
This is Mr. Blanke: He is Awesome! That's a fact!
"You got to be a fool not to check that!"                                                     -Edgar Allan Not Poe

Tech Task #3 Following…Following…Following

We were given the Task to find 5 blogs you want to follow and 10 people to follow on twitter. These can be educators or anyone else you want pay attention to.   Write a blog post about your choices linking to each source.

I always looked up to people who achieved success in very unique ways. Not all people that  I followed are “AAA” celebrities, but rather people who used diligence and perseverance to achieve success. Not everyone is cut out to be a celebrity or an iconic person, but I admire these people because they are all successful in the paths that they have chosen. Also, I followed them due to personal interest in the following fields: Acting, Speaking, Gaming, Singing, and Comedy.

Tech Task #1 Remastered for Tech Tasks

Edgar Allan Dela Cruz is a Mathematics Education Major Student in the University of Regina. I hold two High School Diplomas from Proverbsville School Incorporated in the Philippines, and from the Swift Current Comprehensive High School in Canada.

Since early 2007 I’ve been interested in acquiring a wide database of all fields of knowledge which lead me into going to Nursing as a career choice. However, throughout my senior year (2007-2008) of high school in the Philippines, I realized that Nursing was not in the best of my interest. This was because that the quality of education for nursing was rapidly diminishing due to high demands overseas and the amount of students taking the course.

On July 2009, my family migrated to Canada and landed in a small city called Swift Current to attain higher standards of education, a better standard of living, and to see a different perspective of world. Here, I met the Mcleans, Mr. Greg Mclean, a Band Director and Mrs. Marcia Mclean, a Choral Director, whom their passion for teaching music has inspired to choose Education as a career choice. My affinity was in mathematics, so it was not very hard to decide.

During my two years of stay in Canada, I realized that I have passion for two things, Drama and Music.

As an Actor, I joined drama productions in the Swift Current Comprehensive high school which includes: Becoming Juliet, All that twitters is not Gold, Treasure Island, Competition Piece, and The Omnipotence and the Wheelbarrow Man.

As a Singer, I joined the SCCHS Meistersingers, and the Swift Current Oratorio Choir. I was fortunate enough to have Marcia Mclean as a private vocal coach in which my vocal technique has improved from nothing into something. I also fortunate to be 2011’s recipient of the Jean Cyca  Music Theatre Award for singing “I Only Want To Say” from Jesus Christ Superstar at the Swift Current Music Festival which also gave me recommendation to participate to the Provincial Music Festival.

Above anything else is my family. I am the eldest of 4 children. My father, Edgardo is a Mechanic, and my mother, Cynthia works at nursing homes. I develop a strong interest in performing. I perform in plays, sing in choirs, and compete in music festivals to gain experience that would be useful in the near future. Other than Drama and Music, I also have passions for poetry, dancing, anime, and my faith. My growth as a person has dramatically increased as a result of hard work, perseverance, and overcoming various trials to achieve success. I will never forget my mentor, Marcia Mclean said to me: “I want it, I make it happen”.

What makes you go to Fleep?

What makes you go to sleep? pills? tea? stress? Me, I have another problem. Sleeping in a very small apartment can be very hard when you have 3 younger sisters trying to make a music career out of YouTube videos and Pop music recordings, Not to mention the amount of screaming and shouting that they create with said activities. Well, stress can be cured by R&R, but sleep can’t recovered very easily. good night!

A good way to Relax -not really lol

Yeah I’m kinda geeky when it comes to video games. This card would be very useful to track down my 50 hour challenge. Also this is also a good way to shake away all the university pressure that I have been having lately, but now ’cause I still have a lot to do. Phew, I think I ‘m getting used to this blogging business.
