Is It Better To Stay Emotionally Detached Or Care Deeply For Something? (8th Grade English Assignment #22)

As sad as it may be, sometimes doctors have to deal with the the death of their patients during an operation or other medical practices. They have to stay strong emotionally when this happens. In such a case, would it be better for the doctor to have made an emotional connection or remain indifferent?

Whenever children get toys from their parents on Christmas day, the children usually forget what they got within the next few months. If these kids cared deeply about their gifts would they remember it for a longer time?

In the career span of a ER doctor, there is a sad certainly that they will have patients that will die. However, this fact doesn’t make it seem any less important to the doctor. Therefore, most ER doctors stay emotionally detached from their patients. I would say that this is a good and bad thing. It is good because if patients parish, the doctors didn’t make that strong of a bond with the patient and they will be able to continue working. Although, if they do make a connection with the patient they might be deviated from the loss and not bet able to do their job. Doctors are not the only occupation that has to face this type of issue, police officers, emergency field medics, and members in the armed forces all must deal with such challenges. These men and women must be capable to see death or else they can’t do their jobs very well.

When children wake up on Christmas morning they head down to tree and have fun with their family opening gifts. Many times the kids can’t remember,ber what they go for Christmas that year. Would it be better if these children didn’t get as many gifts if they won’t even remember what they were? In my opinion, the experience is what counts.  Instead, on Christmas morning maybe their family should go on a family trip or get a family gift. This will potentially allow them to care deeply about each Christmas and make memories to last a lifetime. 

From this you can tell that when it comes to a case of medical reasons it is probably for the best to remain emotionally detached. In other situations that aren’t life threatening it may be better to care deeply. In a situation where a doctor doesn’t show a connection with their patient, that patient may not feel comfortable. Therefore they won’t get the best service.

These are a few examples of circumstances where remaining emotionally detached may for better or for worse. I care deeply about Learning in Pajamas and I hope you do too, so show your love by leaving a like and following.

Hurricane Irma (8th Grade English Assignment #8)

For today’s blog post I will be writing about my experience in Hurricane Irma! I will be sharing what my family was doing and how I felt during this entire hurricane.

When I first heard about this hurricane I was worried but as it got closer I started getting less and less worried, I really don’t know why. However, once I found out that the hurricane was close to my grandparents I was worried for them. I am scared easily so I’m sure it came as a surprise to my parents when I said that I wasn’t scared.

When Irma finally decided to get here my town got tropical storm weather. That made me feel even less worried because I’ve been through so many tropical storms. Although, I am completely terrified by tornados.

Anyway, my family decided that we would stay in Florida and sleep in the basement. We set up our camping cots and our sleeping bags. The first night we ended the night by watching little house on the prairie or as my family says, “little prairie on the house”. Through the night I was having a really hard time sleeping. Upsettingly there was a tornado warning for our area so we slept even closer together so we could easily be “herded” to our windowless hallway. Luckily my dad knows me so he didn’t tell me about the tornado warning until the next day, that way I would be worrying about that. The next morning, the power went out. I was so bored, I ended up watching movies on my portable DVD player. When my brother’s DVD player died we continued watching movies on mine. A few minutes later mine died, so we moved on to my computer. As you can tell, we watched a lot of movies. Sometimes we would play a short game, but it didn’t last that long. I got so bored so I just got my mom’s iPad are started playing you cam-makeup.

During this I realized how much we depend on electricity. We use it for just about everything we do. We need it for lights, hot water, television, and internet. I think that maybe I should start trying to work on that so whenever I do loose power I am prepared and it’s not something that I am not used to!

On the final day of not having power we started watching Adam Sandler movies! I called it an Adam Sandler marathon, it was so much fun! That night my dad and brother went out to get some gas, and they called to see if we had power and we did! I was happy but also not happy because I really wanted to sleep downstairs again. Luckily, we still got to sleep downstairs because it was cooler down there then in our bedrooms.

 

This was my experience during Hurricane Irma, at times it was scary, other were stressful, but for me, I was mostly excited! Come back to  Learning in Pajamas for more from me!

What I liked and Disliked about this School Year!

Today was the last day of school! This year has gone by super fast! Today I will be telling you what I liked and didn’t like about this school year!

This school year I really enjoyed writing short stories! When you write a story you get to be creative and there are no rules! There is nothing that says something doesn’t exist! You can make it exactly how YOU want! I never realized how fun writing could be until this class! Last year I would write but I would really enjoy it! Maybe it’s my age that helped me understand how much fun it is, or maybe my teacher! Another thing I really enjoyed was the robotics section! In this course I created many things! Instead of creating the robot that my teacher made I used a kit! The robot that I used is called Snap circuits! This was so fun that we actually ended up buying another one! Building a robot like this isn’t as complicated but it helps you remember what the symbols of resistors, diodes, and much more!

The things that I didn’t enjoy this year, there weren’t that many because this school year was fun, there isn’t much to complain! However, the main thing that I didn’t like this year was having to read G. A. Henty books! The reason why I didn’t enjoy these books were that they weren’t that fun to read! They just aren’t what I like! Some people do like these books, that’s their taste not mine! One other thing I didn’t like about this school year is how I didn’t have that many assignments to write a story! Many people wouldn’t complain about that! However, I find writing stories very fun! I really enjoy stories where I get a topic and I get to make up a story all about that!

In conclusion, I really enjoyed this school year! I really wouldn’t want to change anything! This year was fun, and I am excited to do another year of homeschool next year!

First Aid!

In science I going to start a new section! I am really excited for this one because it can help me get a job as a lifeguard! This section is first aid! The first this I look at it is CPR!

This is really exciting for me because I have really wanted to start earning money. Not only that, but I love the water and people being safe can help them have a good time as well!

Today I learned about what they call a CPR shield! The reason you would need a CPR shield is because of one of the five fears this fear is that when you are giving mouth to mouth you are afraid that you would get a disease from them. The rest of the five fears are that they aren’t confident in what their knowledge of life-saving technique, they are afraid they might kill the person they are trying to save! The fourth fear is they are afraid they will get sued for not saving the person they tried to save! The final fear is not knowing what to do next. When I say that I mean that they fear forgetting what the next step is!

The Battles of Hastings!

In history class I learned about the Battle of Hastings!

The battle of Hastings marked the start of Norman conquest and the end of the Viking era in 1066. Also in 1066 European power got added to England’s domain.

A man named William of Normandy made an attempt to win a battle! This battle lasted an entire day! luckily he and his army won, because of this he was then named William the Conqueror. Another war was the Battle of the Stamford Bridge. This war was a very bloody war and many people died. Unlike the battle of Hastings the Saxons won this battle, because of this win, William was crowned king on Christmas Day. The battle of the Stamford Bridge started because many people believed they should be king! The battle of the Stamford Bridge played a big role in the Battle of Hastings.  The role was to see who the next king was to be, because at the time many people wanted to be the next king! The battle of Hastings was won by the Normans this is when it started a new era, the Norman conquest era.

As King William was leaving the battle he was either shot in the eye by an arrow or he was shot in the back of the head. The reason I don’t know how King William was killed is because, there are many stories of how he was killed, but nobody knows for sure how he was killed! By the end of the war the Saxons were fleeing the sight and King William then got killed!

Gerhard Groote

Gerhard Groote was man who gave kids, who became orphans after the black death took their parents, an education, food, and water. Today, I will be writing a paper on Gerhard Groote.

Gerhard Groote was born in 1340 and lived in a small town in the Netherlands. He lived during the time of the black plague. Both of his parents were killed because of the plague and so he then became an orphan. When is dad died  He inherited all of his things! Gerhard also, went a school, which at the time, Was very special and rare! Gerhard became a spoiled brat because he felt like he was better than most people! However he did change! On a very special day he was traveling and he saw a monk later the monk had converted him to Christian!

A few years later the plague came back! This time he found the orphaned boys and took them in. He gave them food and water as well as an education. A few years later, Gerhard made this into a school! In his school  he would teach the orphans to write and read by making them re-write scriptures! He named his school, Brethren of the Common Life. He named it this because the students shared their living space and their theological and philosophical views with each other! Some of his notable students names are Martin Luther, John Knox, John Calvin, and Martin Brucer. This is not the Martin Luther that you immediately think of. This is not Martin Luther King Jr, this is just Martin Luther!

The Black Plague came for the third time. This time it took Groote’s life. Gerhard Groote’s school lasted 150 years after his death. Some of the previous students became teachers. Groote ran his school for ten years, so in total the school lasted 160 years!

Types of Raingear

They’re hundreds of different rain gear options. Today I will be telling you about a few of them!

The first option to choose is Waterproof/ breathable. This stops the water from getting through to your skin. If you want to do and lung and limb pumping activities then this is the right gear to use!

Next, you have the water-resistant. This is also breathable. It can handle light rain for a short amount of time. However, it can not handle precipitation lingers and rain that comes down sideways!

Third we have waterproof/ non breathable. An example of this is a rain slicker or even an emergency poncho. This keeps the rain out only when you are sitting or standing still. Although, if you exertion then you will sweat that will cause the inside of your jacket to be slick on the inside so then it will no longer be usable. The one really good thing about this is that it is very cheap! One other bad thing about it is that it doesn’t take that much wind to make a poncho largely ineffective.

The fourth thing is windproof. Any waterproof jacket is also windproof. You will find with windproof technology, usually some type of laminate, are considered water resistant!
