Outdoor Leadership Exploration


This is where we do camping.

This is a new experience for me to go trekking, seeing the beauty of nature and camping to enjoy my life more. In this exploration, it means a lot to people and students like me to learn of living in nature and learning to help people especially the wilderness first-aid that include many steps that I never imagined I have a chance to learn it. Also, I learned how to adapt more with the environment when I’m outdoors and the determination to reach the goal and it’s worth to do it. There are many risks to take once I’m outdoors, but it what I can choose to challenge and choose to stay out of my comfort zone. To sleep in a tent is not comfortable like I sleep on a soft bed, I need to make myself from the feeling of uncomfortable until comfortable and I need to make sure it’s clean and always close the door because it might have some insects.

The long distance of trekking for me to see the waterfall is very unique and experience to do. Also, the long way to see different nature and birds fly from one tree to another tree. As I arrived in a different place, I saw different things like a place where butterflies all gather in one bush and where fish live happily in their habitat. The path that hard to trek gives me the challenge to do it, the strong current of the waterfall that inspires me to push more and the birds that persuade me to explore. The needs vs wants that need to decide to bring on the trek. The fun that from friends even though it is tired or some of us get, but there is still power to encourage us. The songs during the trek like a playlist that never stop to create more energy for us. I enjoyed a lot during the trip and in this exploration even though there are problems or sadness that were happening.

This is the best experience that I never imagined. I scared of using the natural bathroom, but there is no choice for us to choose when we are outdoor. I scared of insects, but things may or may not happen when I am outdoor to explore nature. I afraid of weather that can cause problems to my health, but that is life to live outdoors. I never know how hard or joyful it is until I experience it on my own.

How to be Happy when you have Cancer

How to be happy or how to keep a positive attitude when you have cancer? That is a very hard question to ask because you already know that you have cancer that is growing inside your body. It also very hard to stay happy or positive when you have a danger disease. Once the doctor said “You have cancer” and that when you start to feel negative about your health and start to think of the death that are coming to grab you out of this beautiful world that you have. People always said to you to stay positive, but it is hard because there isn’t a good evidence that tell when cancer patients are happy they can live longer life.


But let’s face the reality and show them you can do it. Your family and friends are your supporters and they are always beside you to encourage, bring energy and positive power to stand up to the cruel life that you have. It is time to be happy and enjoy your life not a time that you are sad and stay in the corner of the room getting more stress once you already have a cancer. No matter what will happen to you at end, but you still now have a chance to stay happy, live normal like other and also do somethings you want. So stay out of that emotion and start considering this following tips that are recommend from cancer.gov:


  1. Don’t limit things you like you do when you have a cancer. Push yourself and keep a positive thought that you will be fine. You may have a feeling that you are not in mood to do what you like or what you want to do, but don’t let’s those feeling stop you. Like people said “Stay out of your comfort zone” so you should stay out of those uncomfortable feeling and start the things you want to do before it’s too late. Your family, your friends and other people around you always there and help you to succeed your goals. Try to use the energy and power to used to have to do things you like and make those moment memorable to you and people who always there to encourage you to stand up.
  2. There are also different ways for different patients who had cancer to be happy so spending time in nature is a very unique ways to light up the mood of the day. Nature is a place where most people can enjoy with it easily because the environment that it already have and the new animals. You can bring a book, a journal, a sketch book or a camera to take a picture of it to share to the people you love to show that you are happy even though you are in a bad condition that make people pity you. Once you are in nature that means you are in a quiet space, but not in a lonely space because nature will help to light up you mood and create a very beautiful day.
  3. Even though, you are having cancer that doesn’t mean that you are the only one on earth who have cancer so you can start to read or listen to the story of other people with cancer who are leading active live. Try to take hope from those people that will turn back to normal life. You will be happy when you  read their stories and there are many positive and inspire stories there waiting for you to read them. According to cancer.org published in 2016, there are many cancer survivors and one girl get to have cancer when she in grade 6. After many positive thought and happiness during the treatment, she successfully only need to heal her cancer not with the depression. Also she created a song about cancer that called “Strength is in the soul”. Listen and read to their stories to explore more about life when you have cancer.


You can use these strategies to overcome your fear and start gain more happiness during your treatment. Even though, this might not easy to adapt once you are in a complicated situation, but I still encourage you to try this tips as hard as you can. To that, I really wish that you as a cancer patients will have a success treat and enjoy your time.

Math has been going on in life since I was born. This subject is really important for us students to learn, but as a learner I know that math is really a complicated subject for almost every students. Even though it’s a grade one or a university math problems, but it still a difficult work until you learn, understand and practice it everyday and most of the time in your life and those problems are counting number, adding or subtracting different number. Everyday in your life, you spend money so you at least know how to count it, calculate it and also know the place of the number until a million place. Now, I do learn different kind of math, but for this term we are focusing on the percentage and angles. As you know, there are many things, living organism or even the economy in the country use percentage to tell the data or statistic. There are billion of animals so what we do is estimate it and calculate it as a percentage that is easier to memorize. Also, angles do take part in every of your daily life and connect a lot to physic. Even when you want to make a table, you need to talk about angle in it. So keep calm and learn math creatively as the way you understand it.

PH Scale

PH scale

PH is known as Acid and Base. The lower the number in PH scale is the higher the acid will be and higher the number in PH scale is the higher the base will be. The PH scale measure the number between 0 to 14. There are also acid and base that are inside human body so once the PH is unbalanced, it will cause many problems inside your body. To balance PH inside body, we need to eat more farm eggs(contain a lot of protein), gluten free grain(nuts & peanuts), refine sugar, etc and there are things that are inferior to  the body such as coconut oil, alcohol, black tea, chocolate, etc. If the PH is unbalanced, commonly there will be issue in the blood and can occur in bran, heart and lungs. Make sure your PH is balanced inside your body. Also, in class we have a experiment about PH testing that the Acid and Base mixed together.


Once the indicator pours into each liquid inside the glass, the result will the different color that can define acid, neutral or either base. The redder it is, the stronger the acid contains inside the glass. Then, it will become purple similar to the indicator as it seems in the neutral area and turn blue. If it has a stronger base, it will become yellow like when the indicator pours into the bleach.

  • When the lemon and bleach mixed together, there nothing really happens because bleach has a stronger base. In the video, the lemon juice doesn’t completely resolve into the bleach.
  • When the vinegar and baking soda mixed together, it’s starting to release Carbon Dioxide gas which makes it create many bubbles and explode which used in one of the volcano experiment.
  • When the sprite and toothpaste solution pour together, there nothing really happen because it’s both weak acid and base. Once sprite and toothpaste mixed together, it creates a different color solution.

Python List

During the multimedia class, we continue from the python lesson from last term, but for this session we are learning about python list. To learn that, we need to understand what is list to python. List is basically a collection of items that is ordered and changeable, written in square bracket and also allow to duplicate the items. Accessing Items is like to reach to one specific items that you want. Also, remember that the computer always count from zero. For example:

thislist = [“Ant”, “Bear”, “Cat”]

print (thislist[1])

Once this code activate, it will print “Bear” because as I mention before python start to count from zero so “Ant” is zero, “Bear” is one and “Cat” is two. Also the word that are in the list is called “index”. We also can change the index in the code from “Bear” to “Elephant”. In class we called that a change the items value. For instance:

thislist = [“Ant”, “Bear”, “Cat”]

thislist[1] = “Elephant”

print (thislist)

This code will print “Ant”, “Elephant”, “Cat” because in the python code, it tell to change from “Bear” to “Elephant”. Once you print it, you will see it like this: “Ant”, “Bear “Cat”, but you want it to be like a checklist so you can use this code to make it become like a checklist:

thislist = [“Ant”, “Bear”, “Cat”]

for x in thislist:


After you do it, you will see it print:




These are some of the functions that use in the python list. There are more that we can use such as how to check if the items exist, list length, Append, Insert and Remove items. Also, there is a python dictionaries, but I only write about the Python list. To learn this code, it is really challenging for me because as I am not a native English speaker and now I have to learn more about computer language.

Community Traveling Theater II

This my third exploration and it is the exploration that continues from the first traveling theater. For this round, we are doing plan B which is trying to use what we have for the traveling theater and it is traveling by bus.  Last time our plan is about building in a truck, but its theme not working because of the budget so we try our plan B that travel that set up by our students who we called “Crew”. Our exploration went to two provinces in Cambodia and do different shows, play, musical performance etc. As we go on, it’s really successful seeing our people, community, villagers and different students enjoy seeing the performance that we put on during the trip. Also, in these seven weeks of learning, we really enjoy setting up the stage for performers, actors, and actress. This experience makes us become a professional setting crew.


In Multimedia class, we learned coding language which is Python. We start learning Python with the basic step such as writing with string, Boolean, Comparison, if statement, elif statement, else statement and role of and, or and not in Python. After learning the basic course of python, we start learning about for loop and while loop that contains break statement and continues statement. The computer has its own words like us human that’s why we need to learn their language to control the system for them to work. We also use code Academy to improve our skill in computer science. Here is some code of Python:

Image result for decimal

In math class, we learn a different unit of math every day so for round 2 we learned about decimal. The beginning of class, it always the start of how you need to know and calculate it. For decimal, we start learning about the place of the decimal which the decimal start with tenth and continue to hundredth, thousandth and more. Calculate decimal is not difficult because it’s like calculate the whole number, but it weird when you multiply or divide with it. There are always tricks for math so is multiply and divide decimal. For multiplication, you need to move point to the left and for division move point to the right. The zero is always useless after the decimal. We also do Khan Academy to improve our decimal skill. For this term, it’s ended for decimal and continue to the next one.
