Hey Guys, me again. I am really excited to tell you that I am going to Unplug4Kids on the 31st of July. I really want to get involved because I really believe in unplugging from time to time. I try to be mindful of the fact that I love blogging and minecraft and other online stuff but I also love hanging out with my family (even my annoying little sister). I love art, I love make up, I love going to the park, I love reading, I love gymnastics, I love loads of things that don’t involve phones, iPads and laptops. I guess its all about balance. Anyway I’m excited to be going and if you wanna come too you can grab tickets here. Lots of love Lexi xxx
A few days back I went to a Buddhist youth group thing with my friend Kyla. We are part of a group called “shi shi ku” (funny name I know) but we basically meet up and practice “Nam Myho Renge Kyo” and kind of meditate to help us achieve things we want to in our own lives. The goal of the SGI Buddhist organisation is to spread the message of Kosen-rufu which means “world peace through individual happiness”. Its really fun, last week we sang a song by Katy Perry called Roar and we made a poster that will be sent to Japan with a load of pictures and a recording of us singing.
Check out these pictures of me on my mindfulness page…very chilled out.
So last week I learned how to make SUSHI! It was amazing. I love that feeling when you learn something new (you know) anyway. I’m so obsessed with making my own sushi that I have it every day for lunch.
My fave fillings are tuna & red pepper but you can really put anything you want inside. Salmon, cucumber, carrots…all good choices too. I heard you can make fruit sushi but I dont think they would taste as nice as the savory ones since the actual roll is wrapped in seaweed (nori).
I am so happy that I learned how to make sushi. A few days back I gave some sushi to my nanny and my grandad and they loved it so much!
My mom and dad were blown away. I really think I want to be a chef like my dad. My BFF played a game that we were chefs the other night and we made sushi and we sold it to our moms. We made a fortune. #SUSHI #LOVE IT.
So yesterday I decided to take a break from screens and go out to play! Whooo….fun. NOT, I got so carried away heeling and wheeling all around the place I fell…bad. I cut my hip and my knee. I was at my friends house when it happened (talk about needing my mom moment #cringe). I have to admit before the fall I was loving life lol, I’ve been so busy trying to get this blog ready for launch I started to forget what my friends looked like.
Also I don’t under stand how I cut my right knee and my left hip little bit awkward?
This week in CoderDojo I am working on my blog which is lots of fun!
Also this week I entered big a competition its kind of like like coolest projects but it’s called the Eir Junior Spiders. I am showing my blog on the day. I haven’t told anyone about my website/blog yet because its not really finished yet but I am super duper exited to show my blog off soon!
How I came up with my idea for coolest projects 2016.
Coolest projects is a unique opportunity to combine my love of tech with my love of creativity.
I wanted my project this year to be really visual and creative. I wanted my project to help people their in everyday lives. I wanted my project to be fun to make and fun to show off. I wanted my project to have an accompanying app too, but I think I’m making it a bit complicated.
For weeks I brainstormed. I thought of lots of cool ideas, but they were all too difficult to program using a Rasperry Pi. So I decided to do something very simple. I might make an alarm for my diary so that I would know when my little sister is trying to read it!
I am going to use this tutorial as a guide. I already have an arduino so it might be easyish.
