A story told to me by a Woodlouse called Torville.  Although I believe it to be entirely true there are aspects of fantasy and perhaps a degree of humour which may have passed Torville by.

Oral présentée par :Flore DESTIEULe JournalismeBonjour Mesdames et Messieurs,je me présente : je m’appelle Flore DESTIEU et je suis une élève de 4 Lumière.Le projet que je vais vous présenter concerne le journalisme.Je trouvais que ce sujet me correspond plus que d’autres, donc j’ai préféré le choisir.Les articles que nous avons créés m’ont vraiment inspirée et je me sentais dans mon élément.Tout d’abord, nous avons créé deux articles :• un en Education Civique puis en Français,• on a également pu voir comment présenter un article en Technologie.En ce qui concerne l’Education Civique, nous avons conçu un article sur les médias en abordant un sujet similaire. (Donner article prof).Pour ma part, j’ai choisi le Cyberharcèlement car je trouve que c’est un sujet vaste et complexe qui comporte beaucoup de nuances et sur lequel nous pouvons débattre.Nous nous sommes aussi intéressés à la façon dont un article est composé ainsi que à la façon de le présenter.Un article de presse est toujours structuré de la même façon :• Tout d’abord il y a le chapeau, une phrase assez courte qui accroche.• Ensuite, il y a le corps du texte qui doit comporter : une phrase d’accroche, la règle des 5 W (Who, What, When, Where et Why) pour donner l’essentiel de l’information.• Après on devra mettre des intertitres qui découpent l’article en paragraphe.• A la fin de l’article, il faudra une chute, une conclusion courte qui peut ouvrir l’article sur un autre sujet.Cependant, il faut toujours placer le plus important de l’article au début, c’est la technique de la pyramide inversée.Maintenant, je vais vous parler de ce que l’on a fait en cours de Français. (Donner article prof).Dans cette discipline, nous devions faire un article en groupe sur différents sujets que nous pouvions choisir comme le sport, les arts, le cinéma etc.…Pour celui-ci, j’ai préféré prendre le thème du théâtre et son évolution dans l’histoire.Au cours de ce travail, j’ai expliqué comment le théâtre s’est construit au fil des siècles et à quels moyens on doit son évolution.Avec ce travail, j’ai pu développer ma culture générale en recherchant des idées pour mon article, car j’ai du faire des lectures sur l’évolution du théâtre de l’Antiquité jusqu’au théâtre contemporain et étudier les différentes formes théâtrales. (Comédie, tragédie, etc…)Enfin, pour la technologie nous avons travaillé la présentation d’un article sur différent logiciel comme Publisher.On a appris comment le disposer comme un vraie article de presse et à ne pas faire de fautes grammaticales.Ce qui est important dans un article, c’est l’exactitude de ce qui y est raconté.En effet, un journaliste doit respecter des devoirs comme la vérité, la liberté d’information et le secret de la vie privée.Le journalisme est très important au niveau des médias car il permet d’informer le public de façon à ce que lui même puisse se forger sa propre opinion de manière indépendante, que se soit sur le net, dans des journaux, à la radio ou à la télévision.Pour finir, j’ai choisi le journalisme plutôt que le lyrisme car le journalisme m’intéresse par sa complexité et ses applications concrètes dans la vie de tous les jours.Mon ressentit sur ce projet à était très positif, je me suis même surprise à le trouver divertissant car je me suis beaucoup amusée à rechercher toutes les idées d’articles sur internet et à les présenter sur un ordinateur.Je finis en disant que ce projet m’a vraiment plu et apporté car finalement j’ai beaucoup appris en faisant des recherches sur ce qui me correspond le plus.

Henry is a singer who became an idol and inspiration. Humble but career and fans more important than his own. Being a musician, actor, and singer gave him satisfaction, but also stress. He just wants to be a normal human being. Do not love the way management controls his journey. Do not like the way the media writes and uncover the personal story. He was not able to remain patient for something that he likes. When first love leaves him because of a promise and hope he cannot fulfill. He agreed to play a game of destiny from God. Angela loves... yes, the love presents sincere like his music. He loves her more than himself. However, it is not the time to show the love to anyone because... not the time to feel the loss again. Not forever. When the media can smell their love relationship, wild gossip threw everywhere.  In front of reporters, he denied all the rumors with calm. When Iglias who is much younger than Henry, handsome and an old friend of Angela appears addicted love that is impossible. One by one publicity and gossip create by his management. A thousand stories are created to cover up a secret. So many lies come out with them. When Henry receives tight schedule and its future from the management, when he fell off the stage and coma, when the truth can not be spoken, is all that has happened should be the end?

To fully fulfil ones dream, one must be smarter than the ostrich. Sometimes in life you must take the ostrich by the beak and hold on. Other times, just kidnap someone's mother-in-law and hope for the best.

This was my first effort at writing a book of my work about my personal life, how the first try failed and i later found lots of mistakes and the content was not enough as a story to give hope, so i tryed again but i work full time and write in my spare time which is not a lot, so it failed again, so with the help of some profesional people i enhansed the quality, content and structure of the book, it just needs a publisher touch to make it saleablke on the market, based around self help, Recovery and the start of my life story and an auto-biography.

Puzzle

Plenty of pieces I am made of but some I struggle to put together  Most I lost, some I destroyed  People say puzzles begin at its frame but how when my frame is damaged  My pain comes in many but none the same shape none the same form Continuously hoping one day a hand will come fix my frame  To be able to build the middle of puzzle that is the hardest part to solve  Or maybe it can't  Not all puzzles are mentioned to be pieced together, maybe I'm that one  Maybe I always was Most times I wish I was a empty box with no pieces to put together  Maybe then my frame wouldn't be damaged  But every box has its pieces  Just mix noone can solve
