My New School

Hey! I'm back here to my old blog. I never open it since I wrote the previous blog post. But by the way, my new school was amazing. I got some new friends there, and also the teachers. They greeted me with their kindness. But still, I miss Sinarmas. The friends , the teachers , my locker .. :)

Moving School

Hi. I'm back to this blog that I made in SWA. So, basically, I will move this year, grade 8. It was fun to be here, at SWA, especially studied with Mr. Jabiz for English and ESL. I just want to say thank you for everything that I learned from the teachers. To be honest, my favorite teachers for 1 year in SWA are Mr. Jabiz, Mr. Frank, Mr. Bruce, Ms. Hani and Mr. Rick. My favorite subjects are ESL, Math  (sorry for math haters : P, but I like it), and PE for some games). I'll also miss my lovely laptop, although, sometimes it was error, but it's lovely. I'm moving because my parents want it, and also because of my home, now, is far away from SWA. So, overall, it was great and so fun with my friends. I don't know if my friends hated me or no (big smile for my haters), but thanks for everything guys. Miss you! One year in SWA was not enough for me, but this is it. Two things I want and not reached in the seventh grade are I got the new laptop and I can study both Mandarin and ESL. Big thanks to Mr. Jabiz and my ESL classmate for helping me, learning more, and so I can improve my English language. I hope that Mr. Jabiz and my classmate can see this little message from me. I'll keep blogging! :)

-Sincerely, me, Sharene-

Freak the Mighty Essay

Max is a lonely protagonist in this novel that never had his confidence without Kevin, an adventurous main character. At first, they were not friend, however they started to make a faithful friendship. Finally, they make a ‘freak’ community, and they called it Freak the Mighty. They both have their own weakness. People called them abnormal. Max which is also kicker, has a big body but he is like a stupid boy. Brainy Kevin is very smart boy, but his body didn’t grow up.
Actually, the one most important theme in Freak the Mighty novel is family and friendship.
First, Max want to try to make a friend with Kevin. Therefore, he invited Kevin to ‘the down under’, which is Max’s room. He just knew that Kevin is a brainy boy. Max learned many things from Kevin, such as his father, when abruptly Kevin’s mom, which is Fair Gwen, come over to the down under and took Kevin back to his home. Ultimately, Fair Gwen felt guilty after Kevin told Fair Gwen how good was he. So, Fair Gwen invited Max’s family as her apologize. At the first, Max was still mad, but then, he cooled down and accept her apologize. They had a small dinner, and they had a lot of fun. They ate and drank which is really succulent. Max also knew that Fair Gwen is a fun and good person. I think this dinner is important to their relationship between Max’s family and Kevin’s family. They can become more closer, and also know each other deeply.

Furthermore, it’s Fourth of July. Grim really care about Max. He afraid of everything that Max do, but in this event, Grim and Gram allowed Max to go. In addition, Max saw that their dad got drunk. Everything was really busy with their activities. In the middle of the night, there were fireworks. Small little Kevin couldn’t really watch that charmed fireworks in the middle of that dark night. Some other tall and greedy people want to see that amazing fireworks. They all cover up Kevin. Thus, he could not really watch that fireworks. Immediately, Max put Kevin up to his shoulder, and Kevin was really happy. He shouted as loud as he can. They were all can watch the fireworks. This event makes Kevin and Max become more close friend. Kevin knew that Max was a care person.

And the last but not least is happened in the Christmas Eve were Max’s family and Kevin’s family had a little party for celebrating Christmas Eve. They share foods, drinks and gifts each other. From Kevin, Max got a pyramid shaped box. Inside that box, there is Kevin’s dictionary that Kevin made just for Max. However, the cunning Killer Kane, which is Max’s dad, sneak through the Max’s room in the down under. He kidnapped Max, and he went to Loretta Lee’s house. After they had some little conversation, instantaneously, Killer Kane pursue Loretta to the basement. He strangled Loretta when finally Kevin came and brought a gun. With that gun, Kevin succeed to fool Killer Kane, and he saved Loretta’s life. Eventually, they escape from Killer Kane. It’s all because Kevin that tried to save Max from Killer Kane. For me, I choose this because this topic can make more relationship between Max and Kevin’s family become more more closer, and they were like a family. Max really thankful to Kevin that saved his life.

Final Assessment Freak the Mighty

        Max is a lonely protagonist in this novel that never had his confidence without Kevin, an adventurous main character. At first, they were not friend, however they started to make a faithful friendship. Finally, they make a ‘freak’ community, and they called it Freak the Mighty. They both have their own weakness. People called them abnormal. Max which is also kicker, has a big body but he is like a stupid boy. Brainy Kevin is very smart boy, but his body didn’t grow up.

Actually, the one most important theme in Freak the Mighty novel is family and friendship.
First, Max want to try to make a friend with Kevin. Therefore, he invited Kevin to ‘the down under’, which is Max’s room. He just knew that Kevin is a brainy boy. Max learned many things from Kevin, such as his father, when abruptly Kevin’s mom, which is Fair Gwen, come over to the down under and took Kevin back to his home.

Max also knew that Fair Gwen is a fun and good person. I think this dinner is important to their relationship between Max’s family and Kevin’s family. They can become more closer, and also know each other deeply.

Furthermore, it’s Fourth of July. Grim really care about Max. He afraid of everything that Max do, but in this event, Grim and Gram allowed Max to go. In addition, Max saw that their dad got drunk. Everything was really busy with their activities. In the middle of the night, there were fireworks. Small little Kevin couldn’t really watch that charmed fireworks in the middle of that dark night.

This event makes Kevin and Max become more close friend. Kevin knew that Max was a care person.

And the last but not least is happened in the Christmas Eve were Max’s family and Kevin’s family had a little party for celebrating Christmas Eve. They share foods, drinks and gifts each other. From Kevin, Max got a pyramid shaped box. Inside that box, there is Kevin’s dictionary that Kevin made just for Max.

With that gun, Kevin succeed to fool Killer Kane, and he saved Loretta’s life. Eventually, they escape from Killer Kane. It’s all because Kevin that tried to save Max from Killer Kane. For me, I choose this because this topic can make more relationship between Max and Kevin’s family become more more closer, and they were like a family. Max really thankful to Kevin that saved his life.

Here is my summary from Freak the Mighty novel - I picked chapter 4;

Max still feels alone. He feels that he doesn’t has any friend. Therefore, Max want to make friend with Freak, which is Kevin. Kevin is also alone, however, he is an adventurous boy. He can make anything become more fun to him. Max invites Kevin to his room, in the 'down under'. His room is in the basement. After that time, Max learned that Freak is a smart boy. He also learned about what happen about his father and when he was young. But suddenly, Fair Gwen come and take Freak to his home. Fair Gwen realize that she already hurt Max's feelings. So she will invite him to dinner. Max was upset but then, he cools down and accepts her apology.

Final Post

In my ESL class, I can make project about anything we want. This was the first time that I can make any project that we want to make. First I still confused what I have to do, but finally I choose designing a watch, because I like to design. My classmate also made an interesting project. For example, Nabila make a t-shirt, Lidya make a cupcake, Rafi make a lego robot, Wyan make a torch, etc. You can visited their blog too for your inspiration... : )

So first, I made a post about knowledge. In 'knowledge' stage, I have to gain more information about my project by searching. Secondly, I need to make a post about comprehension. In comprehension stage, I have to understanding more about my project. Then, the next step, I was making the project. It was in application stage. So now, in this analysis stage, I have to answer the UOI question, orally identify the problems when design it, and make a commercial for my final watch. This is the question that I made before:
“Why and how is design important to making a watch?” 
Design is important for many reason. First, with the unique design of wristwatch makes people more fashionable. The design can makes fashion in our simple life. Therefore, people can be more ‘up-to-date’, and look more ‘charming’. It also makes people think that watch is not only for showing the time and date, but also make people that follow the trend of fashion.

Beside that, design is some kind of art. Designing a watch is also a part of work of art. A lot of people like art. Hence, they can create watches as many as they can. Thus, they can make an auction of it, and they can earn money from it. When they create a ‘new’ design of watch, they also can be more creative and imaginative.

Lastly, the next benefit is people can make some collections of watches. For those people who like watch, typically in the design, they like to make a collection of watch. It will acquire more motivation and inspiration of people to design.

This is my commercial about the watch that I designed
