Prompt: Bridge Sprinkled Pink Daffodil Huge

I saw a pink sky, a huge amount of daffodils and I felt like I was walking on a bridge. It felt like I was in another world. I do not know if I was unconscious or I was playing games at this point.

I have to sprinkle a little bad though, I stopped spinning and saw barf on my face.

Webinar Reflection

0

Today we did a session on internet safety and how not to get scammed. It was called Webinar. We learned that if someone asks you for money and it has bit.ly in it, it most likely to be a scam. We also learned that some ‘friends’ can betray you and scam you by asking for a password or asking about personal information, if you ask your friend if they tried to friend you and they said no, it was most likely a scam.

Some people can pretend to be celebrities and can try to scam you by trying to friend you or giving you a false link. It was said that over $90 million dollars had been scammed out of people last year because they could of used a tactic or they could of given you a fake link.

All these are a sign of scams: >>, Bit.ly, Last Chance!, Hi, (No name), (1)

If you want to avoid scams I advise you to add a firewall or you can try to install an anti virus program, just make sure you look out for these scams!
