“Lamb to the Slaughter” Found Poem

Lamb to the Slaughter is a short story written by Roald Dahl. This was a short story about a detective named Patrick and his wife Mrs. Maloney. On a Thursday, Mrs. Maloney had hit Patrick with a frozen lamb leg, therefore killing him. The police couldn’t find the thing that had been used to kill Patrick, hence I used ‘what’ instead ‘who’.

“‘That’s a hell of a big club the guy must’ve used to hit poor Patrick,’ one of them was saying. ‘The doc says his skull was smashed all to pieces just like from a sledgehammer.’” Clearly, the police had thought that It was some sort of heavy metal, but the story tells us otherwise.

CPX Summative Blog

In this unit we combined everything we learned together and designed our final project. For me, I designed a Minecraft Torch. I was supposed to attach my project to my friend’s but we ran out of time. This project includes coding and sewing, and a whole lot of problem solving.

My project is a little different than my previous projects, since its more complicated. At first I thought of building a frame to hold the felt. I wasn’t sure on what material to use at first, but I did think of what shape I should use for the frame. At first I decided on cylinder poles for the frame since its a better grip. Latter I found out that I need to scrap that idea since I figured that its harder to attach them together. Therefore, I settled on square polls. I decided on wood since its easier to cut.

When I started to make the frame, I ran into a lot of problems. At  first the only problems were the cuts were not strait and its hard to attach to everything else. Later I ran into another problem. I had inaccurate measurements and I had to cut everything to the same length. Then I ran into my third problem. I was supposed to make a smaller frame to fit inside my outer frame to fit my circuits on, but I forgot about the thickness or the wood, therefore I had to redo it in a from of thinner wood.

Something I learned from this class is that I have to check and double check my measurements. I also learned about coding and how it works, since I never did it before.

Circuits C-4 Reflection

In this unit of circuits, Our class were assigned to make a pin/bookmark. We are suppose to incorporate a LED on to our project.

I chose to make a pin since I figure that its more space compact and easier to carry around. The pin could come all shapes and sizes whereas the bookmark could only be a certain  size. As for the design, I took inspiration from Pokémon and made a quick ball to monument the day that I caught a Dialga with one. I also made a lightning and a grass block design from Clash Royale, Shocktober Season 16, and Minecraft. Eventually I chose to make the quick ball since I want to challenge myself. I also wanted to make a Minecraft waxed_semiweathered-cut-copper-stairs, but decided not to.

So I started to make my pin. At first the design was decently easy, since it was just a flat background. Then there is a slight problem with my pattern on my design . I did not measure the angle of the pattern, so I had to go back to the drawing board. After I finished the pattern that goes on my quick ball, its time to make the separation line from the top half and the bottom half of the ball. At first I decided that I was going to make the center dot and the line two different layers, but decided to make it one to make sure that the LED fits through.

What was hard for me was the sewing. I didn’t have a lot of experience on it and the battery holder was blocking the way. It was also hard to sew the small parts together, and eventually I glued them all up.

Argumentative Essay Reflection

What I think I did well on this essay is my introduction, and I think that I had a good hook and transition for my introduction.  What I might need to improve on is siting the information more specifically, and improve on my closing statement in the conclusion. There are a couple of areas where I marked myself differently for example, some parts I marked myself in between meeting and approaching since I’m not sure where I was. One of the biggest challenges were finding evidence, since I didn’t have any before.

Product Design: Smell Prototype


In this product design unit, we designed a prototype for a smell detector. What I thought of is a phone case. The back of the case is the detector ; the stripes/ holes are where the detector extracts the smell and prosses it. Then it transfers the information through 5G into your APP. At the bottom left is where the battery goes. It’s a cool feature and I’m proud of it.

Product Design Lightbox Reflection

In this unit on product design, we created a lightbox that features a landscape; where we have been to or have missed because of COVID-19. In this prosses, we learned how to use a tool called Adobe Illustrator, where it helps us to arrange/create shapes for our lightbox layers. We also used several websites like, which helps us to find shapes and icons to later be implemented in Illustrator.                                                                                               The landscape I choose is Beijing, CCTV tower. I had a little struggle on what landscape I should make since I didn’t have somewhere that I missed. Finally I landed on Beijing since I have lived here since I was born. Then I choose to make the Central China Television building because that was where I have lived in the first six years of my life, until I moved to Shun Yi.

During my second layer, my obstacle was merging shapes together. Turns out that there are a lot of steps I missed to get to the actual step to merge the shape. This layer took me three classes to finish, including researching. It might not look much but I struggled a lot. The biggest obstacle I had was my third layer. The city. It was hard enough to find an appropriate image, but I also have to remove the windows one by one. Later, a skill I learnt to solve a lot of the problems was Preview. You could freely change the shape and details on the icon, so it was very convenient. After that, everything else was much easier. For future students who are going to use Illustrator, an advice would be to use and change your icon in preview before you insert it to Illustrator.
Something I like to change is to inert the LED lights behind the tower, so it feels more alive, but it was insanely hard. Instead, I put the lights behind the buildings (which was also very hard) and it turned out great.
Overall, I think that my lightbox was a success (kind of) because it had a great effect, and the layers had a reasonable spacing. I think that there are a lot of places I could improve on. For example, there are chunks of hot glue since my wires keep popping off, and the paint looks rough because I painted the layers too light. To summarize, I think that this unit of product design was very fun, and I also learned a lot of new tools too.

Percy Jackson Informational

Decisions are sometimes are hard to make, but sometimes you could make a decision carelessly. In the book Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief, he makes decisions that could impact him later. For example, when he snapped at his teacher, blurting out a question, and pushing his classmate into a fountain.

In chapter 1, page 17, Percy had snapped at his teacher which made a very big deal. “Finally, when our English teacher, Mr. Nicoll, asked me for the millionth time why I was too lazy to study for spelling tests, I snapped. I called him an old sot.” This may impact him on his grades, or might even get expelled, which could possibly change his whole life. This also could affect his level of respect. Topic 2, article 1 states that “Be open and accept what’s going on around you.” This would help Percy to make a different decision that time, and maybe he could pick up English”

In the beginning of chapter 2, page 23, Percy couldn’t stand his friend Grover anymore “Finally I couldn’t stand it anymore. I said, ‘Looking for Kindly Ones?’” This plays a big role in the book, but this also might affect the relation between him and Grover. It also could impact his life and the other world. “Healthy relationships are a vital component of health and wellbeing.” Stated the second article in topic 3. Percy could have asked in another way, and then work out what is happening.

In chapter 1, page 9, Percy had some anger issues and “pushed” his classmate into a fountain. I tried to stay cool. The school counselor had told me a million times, “Count to ten, get control of your temper.” But I was so mad my mind went blank. A wave roared in my ears. I don’t remember touching her, but the next thing I knew, Nancy was sitting on her butt in the fountain, screaming, Percy pushed me!” This behavior will impact his learning because detentions from Mrs. Dodds. “The best decisions are made using both logic and emotion.” Stated in Topic 2, article 2. If he had done what he was trying to do; count to 10, then he would not “push” Nancy.

To summaries, Percy Jackson had made a lot of choices like calling his teacher an old sot, or asking something he’s not supposed to ask, to pushing a classmate into a fountain. Percy could make different decisions and improved them, or he could not do anything. Decisions are sometimes are hard to make, but sometimes you could make a decision carelessly.
