      <span style=”font-weight: 400;”>I have always been drawn to history-related stories. For example, when new artifacts are found that date back decades or centuries. Going to a museum is fascinating to me because it’s like, those artifacts were in the presence or in possession of Pharaohs, Kings, Queens, Armies, Gods, Presidents, and much more. Things used by those people, things owned by those people, stories engraved with those artifacts showing just how old and interesting they truly are. It’s also evidence that our history is truly real. It fascinates me how we can just go to a museum to see all of it. I have always had an interest in history-related movies such as, but not limited to, “National Treasure.” They solve an old historical scavenger hunt that involves STEALING the Declaration of Independence to find a room filled with artifacts that were put away from sight from the British and then in the second movie, finding Cibola, the city of gold. I am excited about the third one coming out supposedly this year. I have also found a fascination with fashion news-related articles. I’ve always liked watching shows like “Project runway to watch simple pieces of cloth get turned into beautiful pieces of clothing. The news/ articles are the ones where they show “Who wore it best” or “Who wore it worst” and they show photos of celebrities at a premier and explain why their outfits are good or horrific. What also has intrigued me were some rare news articles or gossip columns where there is some sort of big event going on and there was a really cool cake that is super detailed and it looks amazing. Or something like that, I am not sure exactly how to phrase it. In simpler terms, I find it interesting how there are such talented people who can bake a cake and make it look like a person, a piano, or just about anything imaginable. Shows like “Cake Boss’, “The Ultimate Bake-off” are what entice me as well. Shows where home renovations are the focus. I have read some news articles of people who went from having a home that’s rundown to putting it all together and making it look amazing all by themselves. Some news about certain laws that are either going to pass or that were passed that people now want to change, things like that intrigue me. The sources I usually look at are “Daily Mail” on Snapchat, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, and sometimes the New York Times.</span>

      Hey Luna,

      Seems like you created a new thread instead of replying to the thread I created. What I wonder is how can your classmates support your interest? We get the general gist but what questions are coming up for you? What specific issue or subject that connects to your general interest could you explore in a feature piece?
