FITTING INTO A MOLD

Let me let u in on a secret...everyone
thinks that...even the kids that u think fit
in with the rest of the crowd...
We are all different...and even if those
differences might seem a little more
noticeable, they are what make u
unique, amazing and beautiful! This is
not a cliché'! Itz the truth! U are the star
of your own play. Now choose the
characters (or friends) that u feel best

I have an idea to bulid a
community center for kids to
learn a diffrent language lie
french or spanish and sign
language. I ve thought a lot
about doing this because my
mom is deaf so i have to
know sign language to talk
to her and a lot of my
friends ask me to teach
them how and i ve always
wanted to learn a diffrent
language like french.

Waz up? My name's Mandy. It's short for Amanda.
I love to write. In Creative Writing class we're
starting to write a story. Today, in front of the class, I shared the first scene of my piece.
EVERYBODY LOVED IT!!!!!!
My teachers said that I must've taken time to
think of some of the words I used. Yeah right!
They just sort of came to me. One of my goals is
to get a book published. Hey, one of
your ideas might even get written down and
published. Who knows?
I would like to create a
business that is just for
tween/teen girls. We
would make clothes
which I already have
some sketched out
and they pick one of
their favorite outfits and
we make one like that
except in our own style. If I could do that it
would be really cool.

I have an idea to make an object that you
can connect to your head and the other
end to another person's head, then they
will think the same thing you are thinking.

I've always wanted to have
a machine that could hover
above the groud and that it
would be just like a
skateboard except hover
over the groud.If I ever
invent it...I'LL GO

I have an idea of a bike that rides on land and
water. But not over ocean. The rods that
connects the pedals to a bike would be
extended so that floats can be connected to the
bike. Then ill get a trellis for each pedal. the
trellis would be welded on the rod that
connects to the pedal. So the wheel will move
the bike on land and the trellises will move the
bike over floods and pond and streams.
