I’m finishing up the last of my midterms, and soon I’ll be off on Christmas break. It’s been such a busy semester for me that I haven’t been able to post as much as I’ve wanted to.
During my sophomore year in high school, I’ve been having a great time learning about chemistry, world history, and a lot more. I’ve also been enjoying strength training, getting stronger to battle those invasive species!
I love the Christmas season because it is so festive, and when I was younger, I created a fun video called An Invasive Carol where I get to play Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, and all the ghosts too! If you haven’t had a chance to see it, I hope you’ll enjoy it. (It’s a classic! 🙂 )
I hope that you and your family have a merry Christmas!
This Christmas Carol tale begins on Christmas Eve with Ebenezer Scrooge, a man with a stingy heart, a disdain of native plants, and a phobia of dirty feet. His former business partner, Jacob Marley warns Scrooge of visits by three spirits.
Overnight, the ghosts lead Scrooge through his innocent past, misguided present, and possible dire future overrun by invasive species. They help to transform him into a man of joy and compassion, both with the family of his impoverished clerk, Bob Cratchit, and his diverse ecosystem.
I hope you enjoy my video from last year based on Charles Dickens’ classic tale of redemption!
Merry Christmas and happy new year everyone! I look forward to more adventures with you as we learn more about invasive species, science, and dyslexia in 2013!
