Merit HLC C3

For my merit badge I decided to do the Home Learning Challenge C3, titled "Teach a family member how to use an ICT tool that they are unfamiliar with (like the Flip, Google docs or a specific App)". I taught her how to use a feature called Emoticons (or Emojis) as I thought that would benefit her the most, as she loves to post and text alot of her friends and had always been asking about what those tiny pictures in the text bubble meant.
First I walked her through how to use the emojis, showing her that it was as easy as tapping the smiley face picture on the keyboard. She was shocked to see so many little pictures across her keyboard and immediately told me "how do I get rid of it, it's too much on my eyes".
After she got used to the emoji keyboard, I showed her the other categories of emojis and he was even more shocked discovering that you can scroll down them to see even more of them. I showed her the "happy" emoji and the "sad" emoji along with some other staple emojis. I even ended up showing her some food emojis and she ended up adding some emojis to her facebook posts later.
Then I showed her stickers, found in most texting apps like Facebook, Snapchat and Whatsapp. I told her that you could download even more stickers and use them.

My Favourite Book Of Term 1

A Game Of Thrones - By George R. R. Martin
The story is set in the medieval ages in the fictional continents Westeros and Essos, and told through multiple perspectives in each chapter. One of the perspectives is of the Stark family who are the main family of House Stark, located in the fort Winterfell, the lord Ed Stark is called to be the Kings Hand as the previous one had been slain, which is basically the bodyguard of the king. A member of the Stark family, Jon Snow is taken to a place called the wall, which is a big wall made of ice where they keep all the people that commit minor crimes. The wall is the only place that separates them from the north, where it is infested with dangerous undead beings called white walkers. In Essos which is the continent split from Westeros by the Narrow Sea, a woman called Daenerys, part of House Targaryen, is sold off to a leader of the Dothraki, called Khal Drogo by her brother Viserys in-exchange for some men for his army. The story snowballs f…

Alternative NZ Flags

I think that the flag should stay the same as we have now. There is no point in spending millions of money just to change the flag. So what if our flag kinda looks like the Australian flag. Soon our notes will end up looking like Australian notes. But if we would be changing flags my favourite one would be the second one.
