Blogging Task #2

Book reviews, Singapore, Chinese New Year, Formula 1, The Giants in Perth, these are just some of the incredible topics the students from LA19 have been writing about. It’s been an absolutely fascinating few weeks in the LA19 world of blogging, but now it’s time to get down to the more serious side of our blogging – the Blogging Tasks. Our second task is a bit of fun and gives a little direction to those bloggers beginning to run short of ideas.

Some song lyrics, for whatever reason, strike a chord in our minds and end up having an impact, or at least stay in our memory. This line from Big Country’s hit In A Big Country has always stayed in my mind:

“I’m not expecting to grow flowers in the desert,

But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime.”

I’ve never been a particular fan of their music, but when I first heard these lines they just made such an impact they’re still in my mind. Maybe it was because they convey a message that I can totally relate to, almost like a personal, cool, almost laid back philosophy (it feels like I should have ended that sentence with, “man”). Other songs have stuck too, but these lyrics are more meaningful than most. The task for LA19 this time is to tell the world about a song or some lines from a song that, for whatever reason, have stayed with you. What are the words? What do they mean to you?

I look forward to your completed tasks.

  1. I think we did something similar to this – just wondering, with the lyrics stuck in your mind, is it dessert or desert?

    Love the idea,

  2. Demi, yes, it’s just like we did last year. I need to give the students something to post about. As for the spelling – that’ll teach me to copy from an online lyrics site!

  3. Hello Mr. Hope and students!
