Global Warming

I hate global warming. You know why? Because it can kill us all. When the pollution level rises (and that’s from all transport vehicles and factories), which is that pollution is actually air pollution. The factories and transport vehicles send too much heat to the atmosphere. The atmosphere traps all that heat causing the earth to be too hot, and the ozone layer, the layer that keeps all the harmful rays away from earth, to make some holes in it. So that means a lot of harmful rays are reaching us now. And, the heat that is trapped causes the ice caps in earth to melt. This will make a lot of polar animals to loose their habitats. And this will make floods that some people think it will make our planet underwater. Make sure to reuse, reduce, and recycle!!

Top Harmful Animals in the World !

Animals come in different shapes, types colors and adaptations. And they are divided into two sections, wild & harmful. Some harmful animals can cause disease to humans. You will know more about them by reading this post.

The first one is the Death stalker Scorpion. This Scorpion may not look that impressive. Children are particularly susceptible to these bites and are more likely to die from them than adults. The bite is very painful, so even if you survive, you may wish it hadn’t bite you.

The second one is the Hyena. It is generally a scavenger. It can be a prey or a predator. During times of war, it can develop a taste of human flesh.

The third one is the Siafu Ants. They are also known as driver ants. There could be over 50 million of them in only one place. They attack their prey by clamping their jaws into flash. They are found in Central East Africa.

The fourth one is called the Comodo Dragon. Lately, they are found in Indonesia. They are 3 meters long and they weigh to 150 pounds. They eat birds and buffalos and humans. They remarkable and very impressive because they are hunters.

The last one is the Salt Water Crocodile. They are usually on the top of the food chain. It is known that it eats everything that is coming to its path. It eats buffalos, sharks and even humans. In order to kill its prey it uses the technique called Death Roll. Which means it opens its mouth wide, clamps on the animal and then starts flipping itself upside down over and over again.

These are just some of the most harmful animals in the world. I hope you enjoyed reading my post.

How to be Awesome


I made this artwork for showing the world to be awesome

    Would you like to be awesome? I want to be awesome in everything. But no one could be awesome in everything. So I try as much as I can to be awesome in everything I do. And I would like to share with you the things that I am trying to be awesome in.

    I like to be awesome in all of my art skills so that when there’s an art contest I could participate and win. And of course to make my art marks higher at school. And another thing I want to be awesome in is cooking, because on those days, when I wake up and my parents are out, I don’t eat anything until they come back home. And the most hard thing I think I could cook is Spaghetti. But I think that it will be more easier watching my mom cook than cooking by myself.

    There are so many things I want to be awesome in, and here’s a list about them: waking up early ((automatically)), making a cute hairstyle without my mom’s help, ironing my clothes, always have full marks at school, never take food from my friend, swimming in a deep pool….. Well, these are just some of the things that I want to be awesome in.

  As I said, I always tried to be awesome in everything, and sometimes I make it. I remember once when I was 4 years old, I was so hungry so I went to the kitchen and I saw can. That time, I really wanted to see what was in that can so I tried to open it in 3 days. Everyday I try to open a little bit and on the third day I opened it successfully it but accidentally I scratched my hand with the tip of the can, but that was worth it.

  And there are also some things that I tried to be awesome in since I was a little kid until now. And one of these things are writing a whole book, keeping my table organized at least a week and so many more things.

   I tried my best to be awesome so it’s your turn now! Try to be awesome and don’t give up. And that is what will make you mean the world for something.
