You can make some resolutions for 2014! I hope you resolve in technology to try new things and explore! Mess around and figure things out…
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.”
I hope you enjoy every minute and relax! However, don’t forget to help out your parents, it’s sometimes a stressful time of year for them and they’ll need a helpful hand. Here are some links to stories happening this week. I’ll add more as the week goes on.

You can read about the teams here: NCAA.com My sister went to St. Mary’s so I’ll root for them, and Cornell has been surprising everyone, they’re a “Cinderella” team, so I’ll root for them too! Who are your picks? Why did they win or lose? Here’s a link to one slideshow, I’ll update it as the tournament goes on. Week 2
You can read the story here, but I know it’ll be blocked at school, so here’s the first paragraph:
4/01/2010 12:01:00 AM “Early last month the mayor of Topeka, Kansas stunned the world by announcing that his city was changing its name to Google. We’ve been wondering ever since how best to honor that moving gesture. Today we are pleased to announce that as of 1AM (Central Daylight Time) April 1st, Google has officially changed our name to Topeka.”
What name would you prefer for Google? Did you pull any good April Fool’s jokes? Or did someone fool you?
