How to Personalize Your School Supplies

Summer is coming to a close and though you may not want to see the summer go, at least you can console yourself by decorating your school supplies. Ok, maybe not the best consolation for the end of summer, but nonetheless, personalizing your school supplies is a fun activity to gear up for your first day of classes.

Apple Stamp Book Covers:

If you still have some of your old textbooks kicking around you’ll have living proof of how beat up your books can get at the end of the year. Juice spilled all along the edges, gum between the pages, messy stuff. Book covers are a great way to keep your books tidy. And apple stamping the construction paper you wrap them in will guarantee that you’re ready for the school year, also it looks cool.

Materials:

  • Construction paper: a piece big enough to wrap your book in
  • Paper
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Apple
  • Paint

Instructions:

  1. First you’ll need to stamp the paper. So, cut your apple in half and dip it in a tray of paint, the color is your choice.
  2. Stamp your paper however you like. Add any other decorations you might want to add: paint in the stem of the apple, a study worm, a dinosaur, whatever you like. Let the paper dry completely.
  3. When the paper is dry, open your book on the underside of the paper, meaning the non-painted side.
  4. Cut the paper so that there is about a 5 inch border around the book.
  5. Fold the paper around the covers’ corners. Tape them down to the inside of the book.
  6. Cut the paper so that it lays flush against the spine of the book. You can’t fold the paper to the cover here because of the pages.
  7. Tape any loose pieces of paper to the cover, just to secure the entire thing.
  8. Feel free to put your book through the worst!

Bookmark Monsters:

It’s always a good idea to mark where you left off in your book and bookmarks are simple wonderful ways to do just that and also decorate your book. These little bookmarks are perfect for your new school year, though hopefully the little monsters won’t eat away at your page!

Materials:

  • Envelope
  • Decorative paper or colored pens
  • Black and white paper
  • Glue

Instructions:

  1. Cut the corner of the envelope at a diagonal. You should have a diamond shape that will cap the corner of the page.
  2. Cut two triangles of your decorative paper to put on the diamond triangle shape. This will make the face and when you glue it should have a gap along the center of the diamond. You can also draw on the envelope diamond to make the face.
  3. Using the white paper, cut out eyes and jagged teeth. Glue the eyes on the top triangle of the diamond and glue the teeth so that they stick out from under the pocket of the envelope.
  4. Cut out black circles for the pupils of the eyes and glue those on. Any other decorations can be added now: glitter, sequins, etc.
  5. Mark your page with your book monster!

I'm sad to see you leaving so soon, especially because we have only been friends for a little while.  I didn't know your birthday was coming up so quickly, or that you were going to be 18! I have lots of things to say about you (all good things), but it'll be hard to name them all. I just want you to know that it's not about how long you've been here, it's about the memories that last a lifetime. I hope you have a happy birthday and a great trip!

" In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule… long have I served as the guardian spirit… I am known as the Deku Tree. The children of the forest, the Kokiri, live here with me. Each Kokiri has his or her own guardian fairy. However, there is one boy who does not have a fairy…. " *** In his tree-trunk home, the boy was tossing and turning on his little cot. The circular room was dark; it was nighttime. And, as it was nighttime again, his young mind was plunged into the same nightmare again.... Hooves, galloping in a rapid staccato, like a myriad of drums being pounded, raced across a dark path lit on either side by fire as tall as the boy. But they only reached the shoulders of the horse as dark as midnight, its master clothed in cloth and armor just as dark. But that wasn't what was scary... it was the aura of evil practically dripping off the man, with his fiery hair and dark, nearly-green skin.... And how real he felt. *** "...Navi... Navi, where art thou? Come hither...." Back in my clearing, a cyan ball of light entered my line of sight, gently bobbing a few feet off of the ground. A pair of barely visible clear wings were the only indicator that she was facing me. Compared to my massive size, she was almost a speck. " Oh, Navi the fairy... listen to my words, the words of the Deku Tree.... Dost thou sense it? The climate of evil descending upon this realm.... Malevolent forces even now are mustering to attack our land of Hyrule.... For so long, the Kokiri Forest, the source of life, has stood a barrier, deterring outsiders and maintaining the order of the world.... But, before this tremendous evil power, my power is as nothing.... It seems the time has come for the boy without a fairy to begin his journey... the youth whose destiny it is to lead Hyrule to the path of justice and truth.... Navi, go now! Find our young friend and guide him to me... I do not Have much time left. Fly, Navi, fly! The fate of the forest--nay, the world--depends upon thee. "

So, this is a story version of the game  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time  that I'm writing for (a) fun and (b) one of my friends who is interested in it, but can't play it. Some of the characters' words will be direct quotes, and some won't. I'm going to try and make it as exact to the game as possible. I'll have direct quotes pointed out like this: " Hey, listen! " And more paraphrased things will be formatted regularly. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the story--coming up in the next post! I DO NOT CLAIM ANY PART OF THIS STORY--CHARACTERS, PLOT, LORE, AND EVERYTHING BESIDES THE FACT I DESCRIBED IT--AS MINE. ALL CHARACTERS, LORE, AND EVERY BIT OF THE PLOT BELONGS TO NINTENDO. I MERELY DESCRIBED IT AND AM DOING THIS FOR A FRIEND.

Basically you drink water and can't use the bathroom. there are many rules and different ways to play. But this is what it boils down to. let me know if you ever have played this game before, or anything like it.

i want to try to bring this forum back to life. but i would like to point out that if you say that because "X" its ok to kill animals, then if that same thing was present in a human, it would be morally justified to kill them. if choose that we can kill animals because of something but not humans for the exact same reason, then thats a double standard and logically inconsistant.
