Aloha Equity! I am thankful for you!
I also miss you a whole lot. It's really nice here in Hawaii, but nothing beats coming to class each day and being part of the craziness that is Equity.
Make sure to keep Mr. Sanders in check. I hope that when I return I'll get to bring Ramona to a Watta game and a basketball game. In the meantime, have a blast with your school year and take every opportunity to be intellectually curious.
Anyway, I'll stop by this here blog every once in a while to see what you're up to.

Nudibranchs are my favorite animal. Nowhere in nature is such incredible diversity of appearance as evident as in the glorious nudibranch. These sea slugs live in shallow tide pools in oceans all over the world. Their remarkable colors and shapes warn predators of the toxic poison they use as a defense mechanism.
Why do I love the nudibranch so? I love their weirdness, their paradox, their contradiction: a slug with glorious plumage and a toxic kiss.
Click here to see some AMAZING pictures of diverse nudibranchs.

Many of you may have a song that is your absolute favorite, a song that no matter how many times you listen to it, you just never have enough of that beat and lyrics that you can't get off your head. Everyone has a different favorite song, and maybe there's someone who's favorite song is the same as yours. Well my favorite song so far is called Blue and Yellow, and it's by The Used. They are a "scremo" or "emo" band. They have have many good songs, but this is my absolute favorite! Did you like the song? why? or why not? Also, what is your favorite song?

Remi Gaillard is a filthy rich person that has no other thing to do in life tan these types of things. I posted this video for two reasons. Firstly, because it is funny to watch someone do these things in real life. And secondly, because it caught my attention when I realized that, how could a person do all these things and never get properly accounted for it? If you want to see more videos like these were he stirs up havoc, go to YouTube and type “Remi Gaillard”. Everything Remi Gaillard does against the law does go down on him. However, because he is so filthy rich, he can always get bailed out of jail in no time! What do you think may be done to stop these things from ever happening again? Because if he keeps bailing out of jail, these situations will never stop. Does the bailing system that we live by work properly? Feel free to watch the other videos of him before commenting if you need a little more feedback on exactly what he does.

This is the new trailer for the Iphone S. This new Iphone has a characteristic called Siri that is a personal assistant. You give it commands and it responds to them, like remiding you for a dinner.
It is amazing to see how people have advanced since humanity first started. What do you think is going to be a new invention in the future?

Indie music is known for doing a development in popular music, and it dosen't have major commercial records. That's why often, you won't listen to Indie music on the radio. This is one of the reasons why I like it. Becasue not everyone knows this songs.
As you listen to this song, think what makes it good or bad, and why, in your opinion, is it different. And why do you think it's called "Independent music"?

I've been wondering what it would be like to live in Mongolia. Pictures of this land, like this one, make me want to fly over its mountains and oceans of plains. I think that the part of why Mongolia inspires me is it's vast ruggedness, and the fact that I don't know hardly anything about it. The grass is always greener on the other side.
My fascination with this land of soaringly wide grasslands and rough stone has led me to add it to my list of Places to Live, which grows longer every year, and includes places such as Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, New Zealand, and South Africa. What lands call out to you, and why? What are the countries on your Places to Live list?
