This year a new game on the iPhone called Draw Something is on top of the charts, it’s number 2 on the most played games. Draw Something really gets the brain working, so to play this game you have to have a brain! Anyone can play this game, it’s simple, easy, and enjoyable, so I would recommend getting this game.
Typically this is how you play the game: all you have to do is get another person to play, and you draw a picture and the person you’re playing has to guess what you’re drawing and that’s all. The cool part is if you can’t guess what the person is drawing you can buy bombs and the bombs helps delete some of the words to help you out a little more. There’s 3 kinds of pictures you can draw: there’s easy, medium, and hard pictures, but what you should draw is the hard pictures because you get 3 coins and so they keep on adding up as you keep on playing and that helps you get bombs and different kinds of colors. It’s that simple!
The sad part is if you want to play Draw Something you have to have an iPhone or an Android, beacause those are the only phones that have the game. Nico Ramon is one of the players of Draw Something and he says, “I like how the artist gets to interpret the word and draw it… it’s just fun and you should get the app today!” Mrs. White explains, “Last month was the time I started to play it, because my brother-in-law was playing it and he showed me.” So there’s many people that play this game, even adults like to play it too. One day, I know this game will be the number 1 game that people play.
On March 17, 2012 a video was posted on YouTube. It now has 80 million views and that video is called Kony 2012. This film was made to stop Joseph Kony in 2012. Joseph Kony is a very bad man – he’s done very mean and horrific things to little children in Uganda – that’s why we need to stop him.
The Invisible Children is a group that gets supporters to help bring awareness to the horrific things that Joseph Kony is doing. Kony 2012 has been spread all around the world to get supporters, but the biggest accomplishment they achieved was getting the president to watch the video, and as a result he sent out 100 American military advisors to Uganda. Jason Russell was the co-founder of Invisible Children, and he was the one who directed Kony 2012. On April 20th an event is going to take place called “Cover the Night”. People will cover the streets with anti-Kony propaganda to bring even more awareness to the warlord’s alleged crimes.
“I think Joseph Kony should be stopped from making kids kill other people,” Caitlin Kingsley (8) explains. Coach Xanders expresses what he thinks Kony 2012 is all about by saying, “Children in Uganda are being abducted by Joseph Kony. The children are then forced to kill or be killed. The United States government should take some sort or action.” This is why we need to all come together and stop Joseph Kony by making him famous!

Say good-bye to 2011 and hello to 2012! It’s time to start off fresh for the New Year. And a new year means a new you! Forget about what you did last year, you need to start doing stuff you haven’t done yet. Like meeting new friends, getting better grades in school, or falling in love.
“My New Year’s resolution is to put homework first and get 80’s and above in my classes. Another one is to learn how to skateboard again, because I would learn how to skateboard but then I would stop, so I would forget how to skateboard. My plan is to complete all my resolutions.” Says Valeria Zerbe (8). “What my New Year’s resolution is, is to try to stop eating candy!” Says Jean-Pierre Marc-Charles (7).
There can be many different resolutions, as everyone thinks differently, but whatever your resolution might be you should go out there and complete it. Just remember that a new year equals a new you, so it’s your decision whether you want to change or not.
