Naps, the Caternet and Poetry Month are Samosa’s Favs at Oakland International High School

By Guest Blogger Samosa, ACE Poetry Contest Mascot, Oakland International High School

Samosa here. My favorite cat proverb is, "They say there are 24 hours in a day. But I'm only up for three of them, and two I consider overtime." * So true.

There are few things in this world that are worth waking up for: napping is, after all, a cat’s favorite pastime. As crepuscular beings, we have little time to spend on anything that isn’t AWESOME.

For example, technology. Have you used the internet?! I’m so glad our humans have found a way to organize all the videos they take of us–browsing the caternet has to be up there along with napping as another favorite pastime.

Unfortunately, the students at my school, Oakland International High School, don’t spend a whole lot of time watching cat videos. They use their ACE modems for making their own movies, presentations, and websites about everything they’re learning in school. I’d put more of an effort to convince teachers that there should be more cat video watching during the day, but that would interfere with my nap schedule.

Another thing I would happily wake up for is poetry. Did you know it’s National Poetry Month?

I love listening to our students’ poems, in English and in their native languages. I prefer it, of course, when I am the subject of their poetry, but poems about technology are a close second.

I can’t wait to see the amazing poems about technology that our students will be writing this year! I will write soon with another update… After I finish some much needed napping.
