Fun Facts- Astonomy

I find this a particularly interesting topic  so I’d like to share some knowledge (:

  • The sun is 4.5 billion years old and produces 383 billion trillion kilowatts of energy.
  • Every year the moon is moving away from the Earth by 3 cm.
  • Some of the stars in the sky are so far that the light from them takes million of years to reach us. FUN FACT!- This means we are technically looking back in time! And if aliens looked at our planet from as far away and they had a super powerful telescope, they could be able to see dinosaurs (:
  • Proxima Centauri is the closest star to our solar system and is nearly 4 light years away.
  • Polaris, the north star, is the only star in the sky that doesn’t appear to move from night to night.

That’s probably all the ones I can think of right now, so yea…

10 New Year’s Resolutions for Teens

There’s no arguing that New Year’s resolutions are beneficial. A new year is more than a turn of a page, it’s an entirely new calendar. New year, new life, new goals. But let’s face it, not many resolutions live to see Valentine’s Day. I have never made any new year’s resolutions before, so I thought making a list of 10 possibilities would be a good idea to start me off:

1. Get healthy

It doesn’t have to mean losing weight, It can also mean playing more sports, making healthier eating choices or just resolving to get off the sofa a little more often. Make one small change at a time – like ordering a salad instead of a burger – and you’ll have an easier time keeping this resolution.

2. Be a better friend

This one is one of my favourites. I’m not a horrible friend, but I’m not as good a friend to the people who are close to me as i should be. The more love you give to your friends, the more love they’ll give back to you. So, basically, if you stick to this New Year’s resolution you’ve got nothing to lose.

3. Find Love

This is quite a difficult one because it is fate more than anything for love, you can’t just make it happen. You can be perfectly happy by being single, but be honest: wouldn’t it feel great to find a great boyfriend or girlfriend?

4.Work harder in school

You don’t need to suddenly turn yourself into a straight-A student – but if you bump up your school performance by just a little bit this year, you’ll feel better about yourself, you’ll make your parents proud, and you’ll be setting yourself up for a brighter future. So it’s a good idea all around.
5.Learn something new
Take up a sport, learn to play the guitar, yoga,dance,meditation, ANYTHING!
6.Be a better person
Do some volunteer work or just help your mum with the washing! You can feel so much better about yourself when you’re helping others.
7.Be Happier
See if you can find ways to boost your self-esteem, or just spend more time doing things that you love instead of things that make you feel bad about yourself. You can start yoga or meditation to stay calm and well-balanced, this can make you an all-round happier person!
8.Show more love to your family
Like it or not, your family is made up of the most important people in your life. This year, take a couple of deep breaths and resolve to be a little nicer to them.
9.Face the facts
When you’re having an argument, stop and ask yourself if it’s worth it, or put yourself in the other person’s shoes. i know how difficult this is, I suck at it. but i will try hard in 2012 to make the most of my opinion and I will join a debate team! (:
10. Be yourself
Take a step back away from the magazines, TV adverts, internet adverts and focus purely on yourself. Try to avoid following the latest trends like a helpless sheep and do your own thing!
(extra-11) DRINK MORE WATER!
I have to do this one as it is affecting my health :/
New Year's Eve

Competitiveness is essential.








of, pertaining to, involving, or decided by competition:competitive sports; a competitive examination.


well suited for competition;  having a feature that makes for successful competition: a competitive price.


having a strong desire to compete  or to succeed.


useful to a competitor; giving a competitor an advantage:He was careful not to divulge competitive information about his invention.


Competitions help to bring the best out of us. This is evident in the numerous well-known sports and educational competitions. When we are placed alongside a person we see as a competitor, we tend to naturally do extremely well. But some school and teachers are trying to discourage competitiveness in games lessons and sports events. But a person should also not put themselves in a position where they feel they are at a competition every day with the world around them.

You can’t simply waltz into a competition saying “oh, it’s okay if we don’t win, it’s the taking part that counts”! Where is the fun in that!Also saying “it’s not a competition” when it clearly is really gets on my nerves. We can’t simply chicken out and claim that it’s all just fun,happiness and no one wins, just so a few people who lose can be fine!

Life can be a bit like a competition; if you go at it with a pathetic, loser attitude and no competitive drive, where is it gonna get you?

You can’t walk into a job interview and state that if you don’t get it, it’s fine, you haven’t lost, when you HAVE! Accept it and move on. You can’t win everything, nor can you say there are no competitions or discourage competitiveness!

We need drive and passion to win! We need to be competitive because life can be a competition, and I KNOW YOU WANT TO WIN!


Our future growth relies on competitiveness and innovation, skills and productivity… and these in turn rely on the education of our people.

Julia Gillard


Adopt the concept of self-competition to help bring out the best in you
