Write Sideways Blogging Challenge

For this blogging challenge we have a choice between a list of questions. My three questions I chose were 1.How you came up with the name for your first pet, 2.  That time you fell off your bicycle, and 20. How other people would describe you.

Well I have a dog named Martini. She is an Australian Shepherd. Yes I know a weird name for a dog but that was not we named her. Martini is a show dog so we got her from a breeder, so it wasn't really our choice on her name. It is a good name for her though because it is now a joke between the family and our friends.

The time I fell off my bike... That has been numerous time because I rode my bike to school for about 2-3 years. But one time I was riding away from these neighbor kids trying to catch me because I killed a worm, I know right they are crazy. Anyways I was turning and slipped on some gravel and I got jabbed by my handle bar in my stomach and got these really bad scrapes, and my bike was totally demolished! It hurt really bad actually, I was in like fourth grade and it sucked.

If people were to describe me they would describe me as crazy, funny, and smart. I am a crazy person that likes to have fun and laugh, you can ask anyone that knows me and they definitely will agree. I am funny, or as I am told, I make a lot of jokes that apparently are really good because people end up crying because they are laughing so hard. I think the funniest part is that sometimes I don't even intend it, which is the best way to be funny. I am smart, I get really good grades and usually am the person to answer the questions in class, but that's not the only way of being smart. another way is if you give good advice and if you can make good decisions.

Argumentative Essay

9.  Is Human Activity a Substantial Cause of Global Climate Change?

The US National Academies of Science, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and many others, say that greenhouse gas levels are rising due to human activities such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation which are causing significant climate changes including global warming, loss of sea ice, glacier retreat, more intense heat waves, stronger hurricanes, and more droughts.     

(You can read my essay in the writing tab above)

I liked writing my opinion about this topic and having to be able to share it with others. I wonder if I had more evidence would it bring the essay together more, I do feel that I had enough though. How might my essay be written if I were on the opposing view of global climate change?
