Smoking Is Bad

Teenagers are usually pressured into smoking by their friends or sometimes they just want to be cool. My advice to you is don’t start. Smoking is bad for your health, also affect how you look and your money goes to waste.

Smoking is bad for your health because it releases chemicals in your body. There are 4000 chemicals in every cigarette most which can harm you. One of the most common drug is Nicotine which is addictive. This means that the body will crave for a cigarette because of the chemical. When the body doesn’t have enough nicotine the person feels stressed and grumpy  This drug can sometimes cause your arteries to harden which stops the blood circulating properly around the body. Then that causes heart attacks and amputations. Cigarettes can give you black tar on your lungs and can also give you cancer in any part of your body. But the cancer that is most common is lung cancer.

Most teenagers think that they will just smoke one cigarette a day but that won’t happen. The drug called nicotine causes the body to crave for a more nicotine. So you then end up smoking the whole pack and then you start smoking a pack or two nearly every day.

Did you know that people who smoke spend up to 15$ a day for one packet and spend 105$ a week. People who don’t smoke save more money more than smokers. Smoking can affect you financially and your health at the same time

My advice to you is don’t start because if you do then it is going to be hard to stop.

Animators Apprentice

“I can’t wait to head into the Tusitala room to meet the Bro Town animators” I thought excitedly. When we got in the room it looked really cramped because of all the people in the room. The three instructors introduced themselves their names were Maka, Nills and Ali.  Ali was the main speaker telling us all about what they do and what they have done. Maka was like an assistant  always popping in saying something then going quiet. While Nills was the silent one taking photos

One of the favourite parts in the presentation was when they were teaching us about splitting lines, once I had figured out how to do the technique properly it became a really interesting thing to learn. It took a few tries but when I learnt how to finally master it everything became so clear.

I really like drawing and hope that when they come back they will teach us more about splitting lines and so that we can move on to more sophisticated drawings.
