I am wimp, I just can't decide, the blogger of the week is........

This picture has nothing to do with my
 blog or even the blogger of the week.
I just thought it was funny.
I'm usually pretty good at making a choice and sticking with it.  I just read through the blogs from The Chronicle staff and for the first time in a long time I'm speechless and I've come to the realization that I am unable to make a choice.  I'm wimping out ! This was collectively the best blog posts I've ever read. The posts are amazing.  I'm sure everyone didn't spend time reading each blog post but if you did everyone in class would be giving Arnav a huge "high five." I'm not going to say anything about his blog because you've gotta go read it. If you plan on reading Jess Sayin you will need Google translator or a Spanish teacher. As for what Lysko is doing I'm not sure! Blake has an incredible story.  I can't believe the position you put me in this week.  These posts are amazing. I hope you're sharing your blog posts in your English classes or with anyone who will listen or even won't listen. Oh My gosh, Abbey Marshall, you are a champion. I hope people will read your blog.  I'm sure you all want me to "take a stand" - "just pick a blog" - "just get it done." Well I'm going to get it done and collectively proclaim The Chronicle staff can flat out BLOG.  You are all the bloggers of the week......except ιού άρη αλλ αωεσομε

    I liked Lauren's blog because I wasn't able to read it :)

  3. I typed in your phrase there into several translators and each one said that "ιού άρη αλλ αωεσομε" meant "virus Mars all aoesome". We're all awesome, maybe? I can't be sure what you were going for there, Mr. Conner. I really enjoyed reading Abbey's blog and hearing her perspective on that taboo topic; she's exactly right when she calls it that and I give her kudos for tackling it. I think I got to everyone's, though, and I agree everyone deserves praise!

  4. I also got "virus Mars all aoesome." So I think you're trying to tell us we are all awesome! I really enjoyed Blake's post because it was well written and informative, but it was also very open. I also think Jess' was cool because she wrote it in Spanish without using a translator.

  5. I'm tied between Blake and Abbey. Abbey's was a great read and I really enjoyed what she had to say. Blake's post really pulled at my heartstrings while being so informative. Oops, I'm a wimp too ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  6. I took a look at quite a few blogs and was pretty impressed. Props to Abbey for tackling a difficult topic, and to Blake for showing such character. All in all, great job! Oh and, ιού άρη αλλ αωεσομε= Martian virus but awesome?

  7. I've got to throw Charlie into the mix. His blog on issue 3 was informative but not overbearing. I also liked "I would like to mention that I have never dabbled with weed" As for the translation, I have no idea. "You are all awesome?"

  8. After trolling through Blogically Speaking, I see the struggles of “just picking a blog.” I do not have a clear-cut favorite either, but I would like to give some shout-outs to the Dumb MacKenzie for disproving his nickname and carrying out some solid research about the potential of marijuana legalization in Ohio. Plus, his blog has a link to the CSPN and the blog of yours truly so that always helps. The Smart MacKenzie also summed up every high school student’s plight with his commentary on sleep deprivation. (Please, America, we need less homework.) Jonathan also showed off his political prowess through an analysis of a shift in American politics after the Democratic debate. (I am also tired of hearing about Clinton’s emails, but if what she did was illegal, shouldn’t we be doing something? Ah, government.) And lastly, I’m getting super long-winded now, but India also needs a shout-out for her thoughts on Ferguson. Me being the literary nerd that I am I thought it had a neat poeticism in that sometimes the most momentous events leave no outward traces. Yep, “The Chronicle staff can flat out BLOG.” As for that translation, Mr. C, neither Google nor WordReference was very helpful...I got “viral strain” and “Mars” and what looked suspiciously like awesome...I’m guessing it’s either “we’re all awesome” or “You’re wrong, Madison. Bigfoot is awesome and alive on Mars.” Take your pick. :)

  9. I gained a new respect for Blake after reading his blog post. Medical problems can take an huge emotional toll, but he is always a hard worker with such a positive attitude. Blake, I'll be praying that you don't have any serious issues in the future. That translation is coming out wonky..I've got "virus mars but awesome". Not sure which translator you used DC, but it might need some tuning.

  10. I thought Dumb Mckenzie had a great post on issue 3. Very informative and well thought out for Charlie. And you should probably visit Jimmy the Greek for some lessons, because I'm getting "virus Mars but Awesome" for the translation as well

    1. Hey Eric thanks a lot for this awesome compliment!

  11. Gina's blog is "virus mars but awesome". She compared Netflix to being a "lolly pop" which should only be enjoyed in small doses... Oops. Definitely guilty of binge-watching Office episodes. Anyways, I like that she addressed a light-hearted topic that nearly everyone can relate to. Kudos to everyone, however! I loved creeping on people's blogs!

  12. My favorites were Blake and Gina's. You would never guess that Blake's gone through what he has from seeing him in class. I loved Gina's blog about Netflix (I'm kind of obsessed). ιού άρη αλλ αωεσομε = you're all awesome? Or something about Martian Viruses

  13. At this point I'm not going to translate that phrase because no body is getting the right answer. But for my favorite blog I'd have to say Blake. You are awesome dude.

  14. Me encanta el Blog de Jessica porque estoy en la clase de español también. Cuando yo fui a España el verano pasado, miré Jurrasic World en español y estaba muy difícil traducir cada palabra. Sin embargo, la cosa más importante es que tenemos divertido con la idioma y tratamos a mejorarnos cada día.

    1. I knew someone would do this. Great reply - I bet Jess would like it and she might even know what you're saying.

  15. My favourite had to hands down be Jessica's post. I really liked the content, and it made me really appreciate my knowledge of Spanish because I could actually understand 98% of it. I couldn't understand, however, the ending of the blog post above. After tilting my head sideways, squinting, and closing one eye, I've decided it says, "you are all awesome".

  16. I really liked Blake's blog post because he shared something personal that I would've never known about him and it really made me respect him even more. I got "virus Mars but awesome" for the translation at the end!

  17. I would have to say Arnav's blog is my favorite! First off because Mr.Fox is a great guy but also because it really demonstrates what the Chronicle has the capability to do. From Mr.Fox's email, I can sense his raw emotion and Arnav's published column was able to evoke this. We have said it before. That should be our goal for every edition, to get people talking. I appreciate how instead of keeping this to himself, Arnav published the email for us all to read and took the time to respond which made for a very interesting blog post. A round of applause for Arnav!

  18. It wouldn't let Serina comment but she says this..
    I got the translation as "you are all awesome." !

    I really enjoyed Gina's blog. It was really fun reading about Netflix, especially since I have been one of those people that she mentioned who can knock out a series in one week if I really try:) It was a very entertaining blog, great for modern day teenagers!

  19. I have to agree that everyone did a superb job of blogging this week. I especially liked Charlie's blog post because it was very well researched and effectively summed up both sides of the argument regarding issue 3. As for the Greek (I think?) at the end of your post it translated to something about martian viruses that are awesome.

  20. I joked around when we first got this assignment to do it in a different language so shoutout to those who took my idea and ran with it. However, Blake's blog also made me gain a whole new respect for him. Medical issues are tough. I had a few myself, resulting in two knee surgeries, an allergic reaction to the medicines, and complications years after it happened. I can totally see where he is coming from.

  21. I got "Virus Mars is awesome", which I guess we should take as a compliment. I really enjoyed Abbey's blog- she took a very difficult topic and personalized it to her own experience in a youth group. Our society is "hypersexualizing" the sex industry and I thought that writing encouraging letters to girl's in the industry was an interesting idea.

  22. I loved Emills’ blog. He talks about his close call with a slight injury that, if any worse, could have put him out for the season. I can’t exactly relate because I’ve never had an XC-related injury to keep me from running, but I do understand how hard it would be to miss out—“the practices I claim to hate, that I actually couldn’t live without”—that says it all right there. Nice job Emillions be careful out there

  23. I thought Eric Miller's blog post was really good. Although his predictions never came true, which took away from the post, I thought his infusion of multimedia within the blog made an already intriguing post that much more interesting.

    As far as the translation goes, I got something along "Virus Mars is awesome", not sure where you're going with that one, but I'll run with it.

  24. I really liked Gina's blog. Netflix can be very demanding and it is difficult to ignore it and carry out other things in life. Everyone is so consumed by Netflix that if it does get shut down, people won't know what to do.
