Six Word Memoir - Too deep

This one i don't really have an explanation for, it looks like your average, generic tumblr post that would have a cheesy "deep" quote. With john staring out the window into the sky and how I gave it that more dramatic feel by making it black and white i felt like " Please insert deep tumblr quote here" seemed way to fitting for a photo like this.

Six Word Memoir - Life

The car you see here was my moms 1 month old new car.. and as you can see it doesn't look in good shape. The damage doesn't look to bad from the outside but it actually messed up the engine so bad that the car had to be written off, now you see our car and wonder well how did the other vehicle look.. and the answer is completely fine aside from a few dents. what luck. So this crash came about because on a straight road a smart women decided to pull a U-Turn right in front of us while we were going 50. why? no idea she didn't speak English. Worst part of it all is that the amount we were given from the write off didn't cover all that we owed so now my mom is still making payments for a car we no longer have.... sometimes life can be really unfair.

Six Word Memoirs - Happy

" Some things just make you happy " I used this caption because its true, somethings just can make you so happy and for me this is true with music. I love music so much i cant not listen to it ( im listening to it as i write this ). And i used this picture because as you can see i look quite excited for the new Chris Brown Album and i was. Chris Brown is my favorite Artist and has been since 2006 and his music makes me happy. So i feel like this picture and the caption fit well together.

Six Word Memoir - The easy days

 This is a photo of me the on the left, my brother the one on  the right, and my sister who is in the middle on Halloween years and years ago, ( hard to believe i was that short once right ). Back when we were so innocent and didn't have a worry in the world, now i have to worry about school and graduation, My brother now has two children and my sister now has 2 as well. We went from dressing up as our favorite characters from a TV show to go get free candy, to the hardships of life and growing up. I wish it could have stayed easy but i guess hardships are just a part of growing up right?

Six Word Memoir - Being weird

"being weird with the people you love"
This is a brilliant selfie me and my mom took and as you can tell we are definitely "different". Me and my mom are so weird with each other and it doesn't matter if we are at home or out in public we are just embarrassing. We took this picture one day when she got home from work, no reason at all it just kind of happened. I love my mom and being weird with her is the best and i wouldn't have it any other way...
Being normal is boring anyway.

Six Word Memoir - Unexpected friendship

                         photo cred: James Rogowy.

I decided to use this photo with the caption "Unexpected friendships that will last forever" because i felt it was super fitting for us. I knew all of them but weren't really friends with them ( with the exception of a few). And when i signed up for the fashion show and was put into that group i didn't know what to expect, but it turned out that the fashion show brought us all close and we are all friends now. Without the fashion show we wouldn't have had a reason to become friends and we would have been just fellow grade.12's.We all shared an amazing experience together and i wouldn't have picked a better group of people.

Procedural Writing - How to build a Railroad system.

Step 1: Gathering Supplies
First you need to gather Wood, Gold Ore, red stone and Iron Ore in order to build the items we need.

Step 2: Making the power rails
To create power rails you will need to place 3 Gold Ingots on both sides one stick in the middle and 51 Red stone underneath it.

Step 3: Making normal rails
To make building the railroad faster build normal rails to place in between your power rails. To build normal rails you need 3 pieces of Iron Ingots on each side and on stick in the middle.

Step 4: Making Red Stone Torches
You will need Red Stone torches to power your power rails. In order to make a Red Stone torch you will need 1 piece of Red Stone in the middle and a stick right underneath it.

Step 5: Laying down the tracks
Now you're ready to lay down the tracks. First place a power rail and put a red stone torch next to it now place your regular tracks after the power rail keep placing power rails with red stone torches every now and then to keep your railroad running.

Step 6: Making a kart
Now time to make a cart to ride on your railroad! To make a cart you need 5 Iron Ingots and place them in a "U" shape.

Now you've made a Railroad in Minecraft!
