JUST DANCE A couple weeks ago, I went to a store to buy a computer game I have played with my friends. It was so much fun, I really wanted to have it by myself. It’s called Just Dance 3, and it’s a game especcialy for the Wii or X-box Kinect. You have to hold your control-remote and select one of the 51 songs. When the shadow that you have to follow is on screen, you can just enjoy of the music and the moves you have to make. It’s great to learn the steps and follow the rythm! I think the steps are good fitting in the song, and it’s fun to show the dance to your friends some time. While you’re dancing, the Wii sees how you do the steps. You will get judged by it and you will get stars for doing good. While you are dancing, you can see on the side of the screen if you do “perfect”, “good”, “ok” or nothing. At some steps you can not expect, you can get a “yeah” and earn a lot of points. But some people are lazy and only move with their hands, and still get many points. That is only possible if you have a Wii with remote. If you have a X-box Kinect you have to move with your whole body because there is a sensor that sees how you move. But mostly everybody can enjoy and have fun if they do Just Dance 3!
TWILIGHT Yesterday I watched the new movie of Stephanie Meyers book Twilight. The movie was almost the same as her book but some details where omitted in the movie. I think the movie is better than the book because the book is a little bit too tedious. Bella, Kristen Stewart is playing the best of the actors. The film is in the beginning, if you didn’t read the book very strange. You don’t know where it’s about. But in the middle you understand it. Bella is going to move to her father in Forks and meets a new boy; Edward. But Edward is not what Bella thinks in the beginning. Bella notes stranger and stranger things about Edward and she is going to investigate Edward. It turns out he is a vampire.
It is a fascinating movie and it is suprising you every time. It’s a open end en there are 3 next films. New moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn part 1. I think Twilight is the best film. If you start with another film of the serie you don’t understand it.
Violent games But what are the consquences? You’ve probarly heard about it, people who play violence games. war games and other things like that are getting popular every day. But what influance does it have on the people who play it? Most kids and teenagers are playing games where your supposed to shoot the other. (That sounds so fun…) But are they playing games instead of doing their homework or how real people lose their jobs because of it? There are different kinds of games and different ways of playing them. You have war games were you are in a army and shoot people online and finish goals. Here’s a example of one Call of duty modern warfare 3 You also have fictionairy games with goals with violence Example: world of warcraft We have someone to interview, he is addicted to call of duty and halo and such things like that. He would like to stay anonymous by the name henk, but thats not his real name. Hello, how long have you been addicted to violent games? Now about 2 years but it keeps gettin worse by day Are you proud of that or do you want to quit? I am proud to be such an high level and I want to keep it that way but still, my future is doomed because I never make my homework. How long do you spend playing games a day? About 10 hours a day, from 4 ‘o clock till 4 am in the night but sometimes not that long. Do you want help? Yes, I want to have a future and no longer feel so angry when I loose… How do you react when you loose?
I get mad and once I destoyed my closet and I’ve thrown a lot of stuff away like a controler. Does that affect your normal life? Well, a little, because when something doesen’t go the way I want it, I get pissed and all I want to do is stop and go home. We can help you, we have a addres were you can get off your addiction, will you come? Yes, I will be there, I promise. Thank you very much. Goodbye.

They are great and they help me to survive school.. I live with my mother, father and little brother. It is most of the time fun. But we can also very quarrel. But who doesn’t? from my mother’s side we have a big family, she has 4sisters. And from my father’s side we have a big family to he has 3brothers. It is always fun to hang around with my family and friends. I love them very much. Now you know a little bit of my life.
