Early North America

Around the time 1492, North America was mostly uninhabited. It was mostly just grassy plains and the wild wild nature, with only small native tribes here and there. Two of these main tribes were the Eastern and the South-West farming cultures. But that was all about to change due to one man. 

That man was Christopher Columbus. After his great expedition to the Americas, specifically North America, the Europeans took notice of America and started to colonize there. 

North America was colonized mainly by the British, French, and a little bit by the Dutch. 

The Thirteen colonies were the first colonies in America. Here is a list off all their names from first colonized to last colonized. 

Virginia

New York

Massachusetts

Maryland

Rhode Island

Connecticut

New Hampshire

Delaware

North Carolina

South Carolina

New Jersey

Pennsylvania

Georgia

The American Colonies became the United States of America in the year 1781.

What the British didn’t know was that they made plenty of big mistakes while being in control of the colonies that were harmful to the colonies. Some of these were, the Slave Trade, and the set of Acts. 

To this day the US is still the most powerful and influential country in the world.

Me and My TFL!

What Exactly does TFL mean?

T. F. L. This is what me and my best friend, Kymee, use instead of the normal BFF. 

T= Twiners  F= For L= Life

We are such good friends, and look similar enough, that we actually have told people that we are twins. We are always with each other, and there even is a saying in my Sunday school class “You find Kymee, you find Jill” and vice-versa. 

What are our similarities?

Me and Kymee, are very similar. We have the same eye color, hair length, sense of humor, passive-aggressive nature, and as you saw we look alike too. We find interest in most of the same things which makes it easier to get along. We share the same “sass_a_frass” nature and so we are able to handle each other. Even when we don’t agree we are able to talk and agree with each other more than we do with our other friends, because we have a really good understanding of each other. 

Summary!

Kymee is an AMAZING person and I am very lucky to know her. She is one of the most, understanding, funny, loving, sweet, nicest, sassy, smart, and great friend I have ever had. She is really funny, and can brighten up my mood by just being in the same room as me. She is one special girl and I am glad that we are such good friends! Lots of Laughs, Jill+Kymee!

Seven Years’ War

The Seven Years War was a war that lasted seven years. That is straight forward enough right? It also is one of the main things that started the thoughts of the American colonies wanted freedom. This was the last major conflict before the French revolution that involved all the great powers of Europe. Generally, France, Austria, Saxony, Sweden, and Russia were aligned on one side against Prussia, Hanover, and Great Britain on the other. But a few other countries got involved as side characters, The Caribbean, South America, (north america was already way involved and is definitely not a side character) India, the Philippines, and West Africa, were also involved in this war. 

For most of the war Britain was getting their butts kicked. They were losing most of the battles that they started and were barely scraping by. Until the year 1759 when Britain’s luck changed drastically. It is called the Annus Mirables, or year of miracles, because suddenly Britain was able to gain the upper hand, and had a long string of victories, after victories. The British Empire was back! 

The war ended with the signing of the treaties of Hubertusburg and Paris in February 1763. In the Treaty of Paris, France lost all claims to Canada and gave Louisiana to Spain, while Britain received Spanish Florida, Upper Canada, and various French holdings overseas. So it is obvious that the biggest winner out of this war was Great Britain and that the biggest loser was the French, who lost a lot of their land, and their Navy was crushed.

My Three Favorite Foods

In this report I am going to tell you what my three favorite foods are! First I’m going to list a few foods that most people enjoy eating. 

Chips

Cake

Ice cream

Pizza

Soup

Chocolate

Pasta 

These foods are what I call, “party safe” because you can bring them to a party, or event, and they will most likely get eaten. Now I am going to tell what my three favorite foods are, why they are my favorite foods, and then I will sum everything up! Lets go. 

I am a food person. If I was paid every time I thought about food I would be the richest person on earth. So this essay was hard for me to write, just because I couldn’t think about just three foods!  I thought about almost every single food I have ever eaten in my life, that I remember. But I eventually was able to find what I needed.

Ravioli

Enchiladas

Cereal

 

Ravioli: 

Why do I love Ravioli? 

I love this food because I love noodles, and these are big huge square noodles, that are filled with delicious wonders! In different types of ravioli, the filling is different. My favorite is when it is just super creamy hot cheese. Other than just these things, I also enjoy these because of the memories I think of when I have them. One of the main memories I think about when I eat these, was when I was with my younger brother and his friend, and we were eating lunch together. We randomly started talking about this club that we wanted to form and what our names would be. It’s a great memory because we mostly laughed instead of eating!

Enchiladas:

I love Enchiladas for about the same reasons as I love ravioli’s. They are really good and one of the foods I look forward too when it starts to get chilly outside. They are filled with super good, kind of spicy, beef and covered in super creamy, melty, cheese. This food also comes with good memories. One time when I was eating this for dinner, I had one of my friends over. We started off talking about how good the food was, then the conversation changed dramatically! My friend started telling me how hot my older brother was! I ended up almost choking on my food the whole time! 

 

Cereal:

This was probably surprising to you, because most people I talk to are so done with cereal that it practically is rocks to them. But my house is different. My mom is super healthy, and so cereal is illegal in my house. We only get this as our breakfast for Christmas! So of course you can think about how amazing those memories are! Opening presents, playing Nintendo Switch, getting into fights-just kidding! Even though that happens a lot it’s not one of the memories I keep! 

Now you understand why I picked these for my three favorite foods! 

Because no matter how good, delicious, or gross (though these foods are definitely not) the memories that go with each food is what makes then truly amazing!
