Miss Positivity

Journey to Self: Journey to Love

Happy New Year’s Eve Everyone!  The last day of 2012!  We have made it through another year filled with ups, downs, life and love lessons.  It’s time for us to move on into 2013 with a sense of peace and purpose.  For the entire month of December I devoted myself to a 31-day challenge of keeping a positive mindset.  I tried my best to monitor my thoughts, actions, and behaviors; what I read; what I watched and listened to; and who I hung out with.  Although this past month and my endeavor of staying positive was met with some challenges, which are sure to come to us in our life, I can say that my efforts paid off.  I actually feel that I’m getting back to my true self; who has always been a “glass half full” type of person.

Welcome

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the new blog. I thought it was time to switch over to wordpress from blogger now as I was starting to dislike blogger for its lack of user controlibility and after recently discovering this, I decided to switch over. I have just finished building the site and adding all of the old posts, etc. and it is my new years resolution to try to stay committed to posting more often. I’d also like to here some of your feedback on the new blog, so when the contact widget is added, please feel free to submit some criticism. 

thank you,

Shay.

Rating System

Hi guys,
Sorry I haven’t been posting in a daily basis or as regular as I have in the past but I have had a lot of things going on at school to do with EcoClub and other things…
Today I’d just like to tell you about the rating system which is on this blog underneath the posts as you may not know about it… I know some readers have been using it as I do have some feedback on some of my posts, but. If you don’t it is that little widget under this post which has 3 check boxes and each one is labelled. If you wish to check the box which is most suitable for the post you have just read, you DON’T need to be signed in to blogger which is a good thing, but if you wish to comment on my posts I would appreciate it if you were signed in.
And if you ever get the time to, please +1 this blog and share on twitter and Facebook because when I lost my old domain, I also lost a majority of my audiences so I will need to build a new one.

Ecotech project – unfolding

Hi, I’m shay from the ecotech department at BBHS Eco group. Our current project is to hook the school up to power monitors to see how our energy usage suddenly becomes less and less as the school becomes more economical and to continue our contact with ecotricity, a small but great energy provider in the UK. We are currently in contact with ecotricity following one of the previous blog posts concerning the raspberry pi – a revolutionary computer designed specifically with programming in mind, what makes this computer unique is the fact that it is only the size of a credit card. You could pick one of these up for around £30 online. Back to the topic on hand, ecotricity contacted us when they saw a blog post we made about raspberry pi’s as they use these computers at ecotricity. Paul from ecotricity has been in contact with us for several weeks now and has offered to help us out when connecting a power monitor to a raspberry pi and then after doing this we will be on our own to continue our endeavour to find the compatible software which will work with the version of Linux we run on the raspberry pi as well as being compatible with the power monitor we hope to purchase in the not to distant future. During our endeavour, we did some research into ecotricity’s quality as an energy provider and from what we have found, they are quite a good provider and we hope to look further in to changing over to them… 

To find out more about our project, please visit our page (BBHS) on the solar schools website and if you could, please donate as little as £5 which could go towards saving the world from global warming an carbon emissions, if you do donate please let them know that you were sent over to donate by me, shay, 

Thank you for reading,
Shay.
