I Love Social Media

By Abi

These are some of my favorite media related things. Messages are one of my favorite things because you can always be in touch with family and friends. My second favorite thing is Pinterest because I love keeping myself busy and trying new things out to see if they work and it's also a great way to have fun. On Pinterest you can see anything you want from fashion to cooking, life hacks and more. I also love how you can use media to stay up to date with any school related things and also be very organized. Another favorite thing you can do if you don't have a pencil or paper, Notes has got you covered. You also can download apps to even draw. These days you can do everything on social media: like have virtual friends like Siri, you can also have virtual pets. These are the reasons why I love media.

Ask Us Column

By Nico


The question we received this week was: What is the most common birthday?


Our answer: The most common birthday is September 16th. Many famous people were born on that day like Nick Jonas who is a singer and Flo Rida who is a rapper. About 100-200 people were born September 16th in 1934. So if you’re birthday is on September 16th, you have many, many other people born that day too.
