Me and glenn are lighting up a gamecube controller with Christmas lights and an open switch. This controller represents us because we both have been playing videogames since we were kids. We made a series circuit and attached it to the gamecube controller. We play games to escape reality and have fun.

Cole Rooney: Think before you post
On August 3, 2013 a girl from Lutterworth, Leicestershire, England named Hannah Smith, was found dead in her room by her older sister. Weeks ‘].before her death she was said to be being cyber bullied on the internet. People were telling her to drink bleach and cut herself. Days after she died her older sister was getting hate on facebook making fun of Hannah Smith’s death and also blamed her dad for bad parenting.
This had a bad effect on Hannah’s family because they were grieving over her and received a lot of hate. Immediacy played when they kept telling her to cut herself and drink bleach all the time. Lack of control is when her family was still getting hate after she died.
Instead of taking what people say on the internet to heart she could ignore it. Another thing she could do would be to talk to someone about. Lastly, she should’ve avoided asking questions to random people on the internet because people often tell others very horrific things over the internet. For example, kill yourself, or drink bleach. Statements like this have been directed at me before but I never take it to heart because I know that is to be expected of the internet.
