Tornado

Last Wednesday we had a HUGE tornado.  It was considered the second worst tornado in U.S. history!!!!  The power was out for over five days.  There was over 300 deaths, but thankfully nobody I know died.  Though it was so devastating it was cool to  be able to ride bikes all day and to hang out with some  of my friends that I usually dont get to hang out with.  Today it is raining which puts a damper on some things. (get it a DAMPer)

Why Victory? in ancient Greek of course

Έχετε ποτέ αναρωτηθεί για Nike; Γιατί ονομάζεται αυτό; Μήπως κάνουν αυτό επάνω; Η απάντηση είναι όχι, η Nike Το Didnt άνθρωποι συνθέτουν το όνομα της Nike. Νίκη ήταν η ελληνική θεά της Νίκης. Τώρα που ξέρετε ότι είμαι πρόκειται να πάρει Αναρωτιέστε και πάλι. Γιατί ήταν αυτή η θεά της Νίκης; Λοιπόν αυτό το ελληνικό μύθο (εγώ γίνεται έτσι dont πηγαίνετε σκέφτεται αυτό είναι αυτό που οι Έλληνες δημιουργεί) έχει όλες τις επεξηγήσεις σχετικά με θαύματα σας. Ή τα περισσότερα από αυτά τέλος πάντων. Αυτός είναι ο μύθος για το πώς η Nike έγινε η θεά της Νίκης … …. Νίκη είχε άλλα τρία αδέλφια, Zelos, Kratos, και Bia. Η οικογένειά της ήταν πολύ πολύ πολύ ανταγωνιστική. Zelos ήταν ενθουσιώδης, Kratos ήταν γεμάτη δύναμη και Μπία χρήση βίας. Αυτά ήταν τα χαρακτηριστικά από τα αδέλφια της Nike για να κερδίσει. Πάντα εξαπατημένοι και ποτέ δεν τιμωρήθηκε, επειδή όταν κέρδισαν έδειξαν από ένα νέο ταλέντο κάθε φορά. Αν και Zelos, Kratos, και Μπία ήταν τόσο καλά στη νίκη, που δεν σημαίνει ότι ο νεώτερος, Nike, ήταν. Ναι ήταν εξαιρετικά ανταγωνιστική και ναι εκείνη ήθελε να πότε, αλλά ποτέ δεν θα μπορούσε να κερδίσει β.

Why Victory?

Have you ever wondered about Nike?? Why is it called that?  Did they make it up?  The answer is no, the Nike people didnt make up the name Nike.  Nike was the Greek Goddess of Victory.  Now that you know that I am going to get you wondering again.  Why was she the Goddess of Victory?  Well this Greek myth (I made it up so dont go thinking this is what the Greeks creates) has all the explanations about your wonders.  Or most of them anyways.  This is the Myth about how Nike became the Goddess of Victory…….

Nike had three other siblings, Zelos, Kratos, and Bia.  Her family was very very very competitive.  Zelos was zealous, Kratos was full of strength, and Bia used force.  These were the traits of Nike’s siblings to win.  They ALWAYS cheated and was never punished because when they won they showed off a new talent every time.  Though Zelos, Kratos, and Bia were so good at winning that didn’t mean that the youngest, Nike, was.  Yes she was super competitive and yes she did want to when, but she never could win because her siblings just one upped her every time.  Whenever she lost she just got more determined to win.  Finally, one day she went to Mount Olympus and asked Athena for some advice on how she could beat her siblings at something.  Athena, being the goddess of wisdom, told Nike that she already could beat her and told her that her victory was within, but to never sink to as low as cheating to win.  When Nike got home she realized that she was starting to win in some of the silly games her siblings played.  She also realized that whenever someone cheated not only did they lose they came in last place.  Later, Nike went back up to Mount Olympus to thank Athena for her gift.  All Athena said was she will forever be the Goddess of victory as long as she went by all the rules.  Nike thought that that was only a figure of speech and that she wasn’t actually a goddess.  But as the years went on and the people around her started dying she realized that all those years ago Athena wasn’t just using a figure of speech.  Nike was the Goddess of Victory.

Beauty and the Beast

I saw Beauty and The Beast twice at Grissom over the past 2 weeks!  It was truly amazing.  Miller’s brother was the beast and he did a great performance.  The Beast was definitely my favorite character.  I have been singing the songs for the past few days and I cant seem to get them out of my head!  Well it doesn’t bother me because I loved the music.  I would tell you to go see it but it is already over so if you didnt see it be sad fore you missed an amazing performance.

Greek – can you read it?

Αν μπορείτε να διαβάσετε αυτό σημαίνει ότι πρέπει να είστε ημίθεου. Μπορώ να διαβάσω και να κάνει πιο μένα ένα. Μπορείς; Are You? Θα ήμουν μια κόρη του Ποσειδώνα. Ποια Θεός είναι μητρική σου

If you can read this well you might just be…….. read it and find out…

Digital Dossier

I looked myself up on the internet……

It surprised me that I didn’t find anything on me.  I saw multiple people with my name but I couldn’t find me.  That would be a good thing.  Even though I looked myself up it doesn’t mean that you can so do go looking me up on the internet.

My Avatar

I chose this avatar because I think that it describes me.  I like taking pictures so thats why I am holding a camera.  I love animals and so I have an owl on my shirt.  The light blue is one of my favorite colors and I love the water and swimming.

So that is why I chose this avatar.

PIE ummm im mean PI!!!!!!!!

π That is pi.

      We can never truly measure the circumference or the area of a circle because we can never truly know the value of pi. Pi is an irrational number, meaning its digits go on forever in a seemingly random sequence.

That is an interesting fact.
