Cinderella is a classic fairytale with the same ending as every Disney princess movie. The story starts of with Cinderella as a baby. Her mother died, and her father had met a woman with two daughters the same age as her. Her original name was Ella, but since she was forced to clean the fireplace, her step sisters called her “Cinderella.” Her father had work and wouldn’t be back to the house for a LONG time, so she stayed with the stepmother. Years passed and she was still working for the stepmother and the sisters. They all got invited to the prince’s ball. The sisters and the mother told Cinderella that she could not go. While the three left for the ball, Cinderella was very emotional. Her fairy godmother came, gave her a beautiful dress, gorgeous shoes, perfect glass slippers, and a carriage with horses and a footman. She appeared at the ball, disguised, and danced with the prince. The fairy godmother had warned her that she has to leave when the clock strikes 12, and she did. While running she left her glass slipper on the many steps of the castle. You can find out the rest when you watch the movie.

Bill Gates

Bill Gates was born on October 28, 1955, in Seattle, Washington. He began to have a great thirst for knowledge of computer programming at the age of 13. Bill and his partner, Paul Allen, created the world’s largest software system, Microsoft. Gates became one of the richest men in the world. Bill grew up in an upper middle-class family. He had two sisters, (older and younger) and he had his father, William, and his mother, Mary. Bill had a very close relationship with his mom, she was a teacher, but decided to stop and devoted her time to her three children and working on civic affairs with charities. While Bill was still very young, he spent much time reading hours and hours of encyclopedias. When he was around 12, his parents were becoming concerned with his behavior in school. They feared he might become a loner. The solution was to move him to the Seattle Lakeside Academy. He did very well in math, science, and drama. In 1970, Bill went into business at the age of 15 with his new partner Allen. They came up with a program called, Traf-o-Data. It monitored the Seattle traffic patterns. He finally graduated from Lakeside and scored a 1590 out of 1600 on his SAT test. Gates ended up going to Harvard University, and Allen went to Washington State University. After two years of college, Paul dropped out and decided to work at Honeywell. Soon after, Bill went too. The two were fascinated by the Altair 8800 mini computer kit. Their fascination led them to create Microsoft. Bill had met his future wife at Microsoft, became the youngest billionaire, and married his wife at the age of 31. Microsoft and Apple shared many of the same characteristics. In 1981, Apple invited Microsoft to help develop software for Macintosh computers.

Favorite App

My favorite app is Musical.ly. This is a very easy- controlling app! The main thing that you get to do with this app is make cool lip-syncing videos and post them for your friends and family to see. This app basically works by first picking what song or phrase you would like to make a video of, you can either tap on it to make the lip-sync right away, or tap the arrow button to listen to the song. Next, you can choose what “motion” you would like your video to be produced in. If you choose fast as your motion, while making the video, you will be going the OPPOSITE of what you chose. If you choose slow as your motion, you will be making the video very fast. When done you can choose a filter, and you can either post private so nobody can see, or you can post freely so everyone can see. You have fans, which are basically followers. You also get to follow others as well. I really enjoy using this because of the many fun things you get to do!
