100WC- bricks gorilla yellow running Pretty

I am a gorilla. I live in a zoo behind a glass cage and some bricks.  It is tough being in a zoo. whenever I want to eat, I am stared at by people. I become uncomfortable and move somewhere else. Then they chase me to where I’m hiding. Pretty soon, I am running around trying to find a non-existent blind-spot.

I live next to a dome full of yellow birds. I want to talk to them but they fly away. I don’t think I will ever get used to these conditions. Nothing exiting, doing the same thing every single day.

3, 2, 1- mars Experiment

Recalls:

Living on Mars would trap five people inside a dome or module for more than a year.

if living on Mars for a year doesn’t seem that bad, you would need to stay sitting down for 1-3 years to get there.

Mars simulations take place in the Utah desert because of it’s red, course environment.

Questions:

Why did 5 people Volunteer to be trapped in the dome for a year?

After a year on Mars, do they stay, leave or get a choice?

Understanding:

I understood why travelling to Mars would take so long

100WC- Because I said so

Our teacher was away today and we got this substitute that didn’t know what to do. She seemed new, she wasn’t very confident speaking to us and she didn’t really follow the daily planner. She was nice but sometimes she was mean. One time Jonathan got in huge amounts of trouble by swearing even though he only said ‘oh no’.  He asked why and she only said ‘because I said so’. People didn’t get told off that often but when it did happen it was super unfair.

The day finally came to an end and we never saw that teacher again.  She’s still out there waiting for another class to terrorize…

Recalls:

Saturn has a density so low that it would float in water if it somehow managed to get in some.

Neptune once held a storm with wind speeds up to 2000kmph .

In the asteroid belts around the sun, the distance between two asteroids is so far apart, it’s hard to see two at once.

Questions:

Why does Saturn have more rocks around it than Jupiter despite it attracting the most rocks?

Will the whole universe/multi-verse die eventually?

Recall:

I understand how empty the solar system really is.

100WC

Nature was making changes. A walk through  the forest was almost how it was, see lot’s of trees, wildlife. But now there were scream that came from a place nobody knows of. The screams are said to be your screams of the future when you die but the phenomenon has not been explained yet. One day I went to the woods hoping to hear the shriek. And I did, it reminded me of a time when I had been having a doctors appointment. I screamed when I got the flu shot. I then realized that they were the same scream… Meaning I’ve been dead half my life.

100WC- but what colour should it be?

I woke up refreshed for a new day. I jumped out of bed and ran to my dresser. I choose a shirt. I didn’t care what it looked like. I brushed my teeth, I didn’t care what colour the toothbrush was. I then to the kitchen to have some breakfast. I got a cereal, i didn’t care what it tasted like. but my sister was different. She always stopped and thought before she simply decided a shirt colour. I was always hearing her say,

but what colour should it be?’  before she choose anything. This was very irritating at times. Especially when she was deciding clothe colours in the shop.

100WC- Sad river pink cooked nervous

I saw a boy sitting on a park bench. I sat next to him because I knew he had something big happen. He pulled out cooked food. I wondered what they were before he popped one in his mouth and hid the box next to his leg.

He just stared at the river. But then suddenly he turned to me. I smiled until I realized his eyes were a glowing purple. He didn’t look sad anymore and I became nervous so I stepped awayhis eyes then seemed to to study on my face and turn pink. I started to run but he disappeared into smoke. I was left alone.

100WC

Some strange things had occurred in my house this week. I was starting to feel uncomfortable, I didn’t feel safe in my home.

I decided to buy a spy camera, I thought about it, it wouldn’t even catch much. But if I didn’t feel safe I wouldn’t regret it. I ordered it. It claimed it would arrive in 2 days but they obviously were lying. But I soon found a package at my door. As I read the contents of the letter, I was aware of the smile on my face. It was here.

I set up the camera. As I expected, I caught nothing, I was probably hallucinating.
