Sorry that I have not been posting in a while, because I was unplugged a lot this month. But the big news was that I have been going to RIOT games Dojo, they have just started running a Dojo. If you guys do not know what RIOT games is, it is a gaming company which is SUPER COOL! Its basically just like every Dojo but just in a gaming company which is a great opportunity to learn about gaming, game creation, mods or animation. If any of you guys don’t go to a Dojo you should go to one around your local area its a great opportunity.
Why do I love Riot Dojo:
– Cool Location
– Yummy Free Food & Smoothies
– Great mentors
So a couple of days ago it was 2017! So happy New Year guys!
Reflecting on last year (when I was 8) I can see that I was a bit all over the place, I kept starting projects and not finishing them. I didn’t really take time to plan my year, and I couldn’t really focus on any one thing long enough to learn anything important.
So this year I’m setting myself a few small goals that I hope to achieve.
– Fix my website icons (update or create a new Instagram) and (update my YouTube Channel).
– invent an app using app inventor, and collect App Inventor badges on my CoderDojo profile.
– write a monthly blog on my website, the 1st Sunday of the month.
– learn how to edit & upload decent videos on my YouTube channel (I’m super excited to learn this).
– design new cover images/logos for all of my platforms
So a couple of cool things coming up in my 2017 calendar so far are:
– First Im going to BT Young Scientists and Technology event in January so Im super exited for that.
– At the end of January me my mom my dad and my little sister are having another Christmas because on Christmas eve and on Christmas day I had the tummy bug and it was my birthday on christmas day so I was sick on my birthday aswell.
– And also in the middle of February Its my BFFS birthday and we are going to A huge indoor waterpark so I’m also really exited for that to.
– Coolest Projects is on on the 18th of June 2017, this is my favourite event of the year and this year I think I’m gonna enter my website & app. Fingers crossed.
– And then after Coolest Projects my family are jetting off to Italy, I plan on spending the entire time at the HUGE! WATERPARK! so I’m super! exited! for that.
So Ive been doing a lot of coding lately so me and my mom are going to BRUSSELS! its only 5 more days till I go to Brussels but im really exited as well because this is going to be me and my moms first holiday together just me and my mom so im super duper exited for my holiday and we are staying in Brussels four two days but the bad thing is my mom booked a 2:00 in the morning but we get to stay a hole DAY! whith each other and we are going to go back at 7:00 me and my mom cannot wait till we try the waffles over there they are the BEST! waffles ever.me and my moms plan is wen we get over there we unpack then we go out and get the train in Brussels to Bruegel its such a fancy town in Brussels then when we go back to are hotel we are going to buy sweets and watch a movie.
Sorry I haven’t been very active on my blog. I’m just back form my amazing holiday in Italy and I’m focusing on getting my project ready for this years Coolest Projects Awards in the RDS this Saturday!
So a few weeks back I went to the Eir Junior Spiders awards and it was extremely fun. Even though I didn’t win a “spider” I was still shortlisted which was pretty cool. I really want to thank you all for your support. All was not lost as I did manage to win a cool iPad case for posting the best Instagram photo to the main stage screen!
Since the awards I have been a busy bee, looking for new inspiration and really trying to figure out how I can turn my love of tech into a real money making business!!!!! I love my website/blog but its time to switch it up a gear. I’m still a tech-head but I’m also very creative and I love to design things. I’ve decided to update my blog into a fashion blog, but not just any fashion blog…
I am very excited to announce that I have been shortlisted for an Eir Junior Spider Award 2016! The awards ceremony is in Croke Park on the 25th of April…next Monday!!!!!!!!!!!! Being shortlisted does not mean you have won anything but it means you are in with a chance of winning, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. My mum is going to come in with me and my friend Kyla might come too.
Check out the link below to see the list of the other amazing kids who have also been shortlisted:
I was checking/approving your lovely comments when I spotted this one from fashion blogger Nora Keavney from www.fashion4everybody.weebly.com . I just want to say a huge thanks for the lovely comment. Everyone needs to subscribe to her YouTube channel and blog! I hope to see you at the Eir Junior Spiders too. Girls supporting other girls is so important! Who run the world? #Girls
HI. I am Nora Keavney and I too have a blog and youtube channel and was wondering if you wanted to check them out
So its really close to the Summer and I cant wait for all swimming, the fun and all that. I just absolutely love when I go on an airplane!!! When I’m on an airplane I feel so giddy and exited. This year we are going on holiday to Lake Garda in Italy. We have never been before, I absolutely LOVE were I’m staying its right next to a huge water park, an ice cream shop and a pizza place! Can you say #exited? Whooo.
I’ve decided to post a book review every month because I love books!
The book I’m reading at the moment is Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School by Jeff Kinney. It is a book about a kid who is called Greg Heffley, Gregg lives in a town that has volunteered to “unplug” and go electronics-free!
What I like about this book as that Greg’s parents tell him what it was like in the olden days which is hilarious (I really laughed at some parts) #haha
The thing I disliked was that a kid named Cedric Cunningham was trying to beat
Greg Heffley in a lemonade stand competition, but the tables turned on Cerdric in the end in a funny way so it was ok.
I enjoyed this book as it kind of reminds me of my life. I give it 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My mom just told me I’m on YouTube and its not just any YouTube channel its on theRTE YouTube channel. The past few days have been super exciting, my mom and I have been invited to loads of other tech related events which is really cool and fun for me to look forward to!
Check out me and my CoderDojo friends chatting to RTE about coolest projects below and leave a comment down below if you like. (I love comments)
