The Crossover is one of the most popular children’s book written by American author Kwame Alexander in 2015. The book was honer winning John Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King Award in that same year. The Crossover, is a story told through poems and funky rap style about basketball, rules, dribbling, and crossing over the line of brotherhood. It displays the life of a young teenage twin brothers who have dedicated their life to becoming basketball championships, just like their old man. This is a certainly simple to read yet fascinating, full of actions, and entertaining book for especially young readers to pick up.
Here’s one of my favorite quotes from the book. However, if you don’t want anymore spoiler about the book itself you can close this tap immediately and run out to a book store to purchase one of this masterpiece.
Sport is not just about to rule The Game of Life
There are no coaches
At funerals. No practice
To get ready. No warm-up
There is no last-second shot, and we all wear it’s cruel
Midnight uniform, starless
I am unprepared
This is a game.
I cannot play
It has no rule
You cannot win.
Going on trips to places and explore the whole new worlds is something I always love to do, and it’s one of my interests. I like being away from home, explore, stay out of my comfort zone and just totally being uncomfortable. Except I never been tracked before. And Outdoor Leadership exploration was the golden opportunity for me. It’s isn’t a wonder why going trekking was a really joyful and memorable experience for me.
I got to see news birds, awesome incest, interesting animals, and new mysterious plants. Others than that I learn how to make fires, cooks, shelters, and energy help in the wood by using all of the surrounding natural resources. It’s was a really magnificent trip experience. Besides all of the joyful experiences in nature, I had also introduced to the way of living together in the wood, and how we can help one another as friends, taking management, being organize, and achieve the goal together
I got to admit even though growing up my family travels a lot, and there are many others experience and memorable moments with them. yet this one might be the best one so far. By observing the surrounding nature, understanding more about nature, and being in the wild together as a family was the best moment of all time.
Traveling Theaters was one of the many interesting projects that are I was involving in this year. The project was very new to me, yet I wasn’t having so much trouble getting to understand about it. I did learn about so many things in the project from acting, to designing a stage, and organizing a trip, it was just a really amazing project to be apart of. Anyways if you are bord with reading my paragraph here’s a little timeline about how did we set the stage up once we travel to places to perform our show.
The one main goal for this exploration is to spread and show the experience of theater to people in the rural area especially in far provinces from Phnom Penh city. Even though I wasn’t able to go on the trip with my teammate at the time, but I heard about a lot of really nice comment from them about the show. Which also boosted the mood, and tells me that many people like our work and they wanted to see more. And I’m also really looking forward to doing more of this project.
Force Field has always known as one of the most indestructible and powerful transparent shields that can be shaped shift into a really thin bubble or shapes surrounding objects or people.
In the Sci-Fi world, there are many abilities and superpowers that are used against the laws of physics. However, in our reality science has identified the four main force known in the universe. Gravity, Electromagnetic, the Strong and Weak Nuclear Forces. Yet the question still remains. Are any of those forces can make scientists dreams come true by converting them into the force field with our billions dollar money and modern-day teach. Is force field physically possible or it’s just an imagination?
So, first of all, let start off with Gravity Force. A force which keeps pulling us, the solar system and the universe in place; which is kind of the opposite of what we are looking for because the force field is supposed to repel objects and not pulling them. Plue gravity is a pretty weak force and also working on a huge scale which is impossible to shape into a thin bubble.
Now let’s move on to Electromagnetic Force. Even though electromagnetic force can repel metals, but it is will be useless opposed to insulating materials such as plastic and rubber. Also, magnets are physically impossible to turn into a thin transparent layer.
So next up we got the Strong and Weak Nuclear Forces. The weak nuclear force is responsible for heating up the Earth cores and moving the plate tectonics. Meanwhile, the strong force holds nuclear atoms together and provide energy to stars in the universe. Except the problem is that there are only working on micro scales and we are yet of reaching the technology on achieving to expanding its form.
To sum up, a force field is only standing on the type one impossibility, which means with the hight technology tool in the future force field might no longer be a fictional indestructible shield.

Now if you are like me. You are probably one of those people who lay on the bed every night staring at the ceiling and just questioning yourself about life in the universe and why it’s matter. In addition, I would be just looking around my room and wonder how are different objects were made, why are doorknob invented, who thought of the ideas of windows, what are those investors think of when they created handles, what are even machines and so on.
All in all those of the object that I just mentioned above and falling into the categories of Simple Machin. Simple Machins are any mechanical device for performance that divided into these 6 types such as Lever, Wheel and axle, Pulley, Inclined plane, Wedge, and Screw. They were introduced and studied during the 3rd century BC by one of the most well known Greek philosopher Archimedes.
Furthermore, the evidence of simple mechanics usage was way date back to the 2560 BCE. They were managed by the ancient Egyptian even used to create other ancient sites of the Seven Wonders of the World. Isn’t that crazy! Moreover, they are still being used until these days for constructions, inventions, and experiments. Now if you ask me, that is absolutely magnificent.
Being different is very difficult, yet it’s not impossible. Your life is just like a wheel, going round and round without knowing any directions. Sometime you might be facing a really nice, smooth, and clear route, but at other times you might also be facing a really rocky, bumpy and steep one. However, the question is, how are you going to face those routes and successfully cross the path? Within the same situation as life, sadness will always be there with you. Nonetheless, the one thing that you could do is to face it with strength. Everyone has been created in their own unique pattern that doesn’t mean you should feel upset about the person you are. Here are the three ways that you could determine your happiness and be proud of who you are.
First thing first is to stay calm and remain peaceful. Especially if you consider yourself a black sheep, you better be ready in every situation. Research conducted in July 2018 from the Independent Company in the UK has presented as a result, “each day on average, families disagree six times – a total of 42 rows a week or 182 a month and parents will have 2,184 arguments with their children every year”. Additionally, I have yet to mention society, community, school, and in public. You see, being yourself is awesome, but others might not be having the same mindset as yours. In fact, often you would be targeted by the crowd and a lot of times you might have found yourself in a situation where you couldn’t take over your emotion. At the same time, the argument isn’t always the first-rate to solve problems. Meanwhile, you can take a step back, and reflect on the situation. Therefore, as long as you keep being you, encourage yourself, learn from your mistakes and move on could also boost your mood.
Mandy Hale, one of an inspirational author around the world has said in one of her well-known quote to, “Just be yourself. Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, magical person that you are.” Being who you are is one of the best ways to achieve happiness. Furthermore, just care less about the surrounding crowd giving negativities on your actions, because each step you take matters the most to you. Drop out all of that criticism, do what you like, and keep following your dream. In addition, how do you think Steve Jobs has become a millionaire and living life as one of the greatest visionaries in history? As a result, he was living life by a quote of, “your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s” (2019). So go out there and show them what you got and be the only magnificent person that you are.
Finally, just put a smile on your face. I know you are probably asking yourself and thinking that this is not as easy as it sounds. And yes, you are perfectly right. Yet there are always 2 sides to every story. This solution is probably not as hard as you think if you put it simply like this. Let’s say your friends always make fun of your nerdy attitude and always left you behind every time they went to hang out. Also, you might be feeling a bit sad and heartbroken. Even so, don’t you feel bad for yourself, because every time you were left behind in the library, your strength of knowing has grown every time, and that’s the greatest weapon you’ll ever find? Who knows, maybe one day you’ll be the next William Shakespeare. On the whole, you just don’t have to take everything too serious, deep, and important. Just chill out and keep the smile on, and the positivity mindset no matter what, when, or wherever you are because the power of a positive mindset is everything.
After all, happiness is everywhere. It’s not hard to find, even you don’t get the wealth, fame, or power. You are precious, beautiful, and amazing just the way you are. Don’t let all of those dark clouds ruin your day. “When the world turns its back on you, you turn your back on the world.”. As long as you keep being yourself, remain peaceful, and got the alacrity mindsets on, your life will be a rainbow.
