mark zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard College in 2004, but yet he is the world's youngest billionaire at 26 years old. This blows my mind. He created facebook in his dorm room with his friends. Some think inspiration came from Philips Exeter Academy which he graduated from in 2002. Facebook was, first, only for Harvard students, but then he spread it to Stanford, Dartmouth, Columbia, New York University, Yale, Cornell, and Brown. After he dropped out of Harvard, he moved out to California to set up an office with his friends. He met Peter Thiel and he invested in Mark's company.

His friends that helped him create Facebook, later filed a lawsuit against him...why? Because they accused Zuckerberg of intentionally making them believe he would help them create a social network called HarvardConnection.com. They filed a lawsuit in 2004, but then was later dismissed.

Favorite and ugliest logo

My favorite logo is the Wu-Tang Clan logo. Wu-Tang is a music group of rappers. I like their logo because it's simply and hardcore. An ugly logo would be the Superbowl XLII logo. This is my least favorite because the colors are extremely ugly and they just don't compliment eachother.
The Wu-Tang logo is simple and only one color which is better that way it can match with many different backgrounds. The Superbowl XLII logo isn't very simple because there are many things going on in the logo and the colors don't go well together. They might be contrasting but there are better colors than the ones chosen to contrast.

Free Post #2

I'm so excited today's friday! Yesterday we had no school because of Veteren's Day, and it was a Thursday feeling like it was a Sunday. I came into school thinking today was a Monday and it seemed to go by so slowly because I kept thinking it was a Monday. Then, someone at lunch was talking about what their doing this weekend and I all of a sudden remembered and was SUPER excited. I went through more than half the day thinking it was just the start of a new week, when it was actually the end! This weekend's also my cousins birthday and she's turning 17 on Saturday. I'm pumped to spend time with her and go out with her this weekend! :)

Beautiful picture

Tropical Sunset by janruss
I think this picture is beautiful because I love tropical places and sunsets, and this is a perfect combination of both! I really like the colors of the sunset, the oranges and reds and even some blue mixed in. Also, I like how the palm trees appear black because it really makes the colors of the sunset stand out. I think the water helps the redness of the sunset pop too because the light is reflecting off of the water.
This picture was taken in Wailea, Maui, Hawaii. It really makes me now want to go to Hawaii than ever before just so I can see gorgeous sunsets like this one. It was taken by Janine Russell.
