Poem for my painting for Art Exhibition for Homeschool Concert 2014

(Part A of Bronze Award)

LAST LIFE

The stench of blood filled the air,

And my fangs dripped of the ruby liquid,

The sheep in front of me lay died,

It’s was all so very vivid,

I tore off a bit of flesh,

And ate it without a thought,

My stomach twisted,

I suddenly felt distraught,

I ran along the cliff face,

I never felt like stopping,

But then the rocks gave way,

And suddenly I was falling,

And falling,

And falling.

Drenched in cold sweat,

Eyes wide with fear,

I sat up in bed,

My cheeks wet with tears,

I recalled the dream,

That made my life feel like lies,

So real that I felt,

Like it was my last life.

Today I did quite a few things. First I studied on the book “The Hound of the Baskaville” where I leant that its Ok to repeat words over and over again. Then I studied on something called “fictionary”. Its when you make up words and give it a meaning.( Like lunartile means shiny like the moon. )

Thats all really but it was fun.

Linear or exponential income?

Which income would you earn more?

Would you rather be paid $1000 a day for 30 days or receive 1cent on the first day and continue to receive double the amount of the previous day for 30 days?

I thought that a $1000 a day for 30 days would earn more but I was wrong.

Option 1 you earn $30,000, option 2 you earn $536,870,913.

Option 1 is a linear where you add same amount of money each day.Image

option 2 is a exponential growth where your money doubles each day. (MIchelle: This increases by a power of two each day.)

If I compare the two, the two incomes will look like this:

Conclusion: if we multiply, the increase in greater than when we add. Therefore 2x is greater than x+2. If I get a job, I will most likely be paid in a linear package which means you earn a fixed amount of money. To get an exponential increase in my income, I must invest in things that will multiply my income. For example, aiming for bonus, or buying property.
