Project Canvas is an amazing opportunity for teenage writers who want to share what they know with other young writers.
Project Canvas is also the name of an online project organizer tool, but I am talking about “Project Canvas: A collaborative writing project. Vision: to create a book of writing advice and inspiration for fellow writers.” -quoted from Project Canvas website.
I did not have any part in creating this but I am in full support of it, so here’s the basics:
So, our family wants to be as self-sufficient as possible on our little farm in the jungle. We have chickens that are giving us eggs every day, we have trees that are giving/will give us fruit, and goats that will have kids soon and will therefore give us milk for butter and cheese and yogurt and such.
I explained in my post about chickens that we had gotten some meat birds before that we then had to dispatch of and they were delicious. We then got laying hens for eggs but mom pointed out that if we are trying to be self-sufficient, raising meat birds might not be a bad idea. So yesterday, while we were in town, we picked up six new baby chicks.
Ok, I have a little bit of a rant today,
I don’t understand why people use weird, useless acronyms.
gtg, nm, brb, hbu, nvm, afk, lol, np, rn, rofl, irl, gg, I didn’t even know what most of these meant until I started playing on a Minecraft server and my friends were using the chat bar to talk. And there I am, having no idea what people are saying and feeling like an idiot when I have to ask them to explain their super-cool lingo to me. And I was like, well they are playing a game right now and it’s hard to stop what you are doing long enough to type a full sentence while you are getting attacked or something. So I let that one go, you are in the middle of a game, you don’t want to stop, fine. I made a point to try to never use the acronyms, instead, I simply learned to type faster than anyone else.
