FC: My Diary April Maye Star | By: Haley Schreiner... Period 11th | Keep Out! | :) | <3
1: I would like to dedicate this to all of my friends...but mostly to the best friends! Love you guys! :) <3 | Friends
3: Dear Diary, On April 4, 1418, April Maye Star was born. My parents are Winter and Summer Star. When I was born I was made up of dust and gas that gravity pulled together into a sphere. Then, as the sphere became denser it gets hotter and the hydrogen changes to helium, in a process called nuclear fusion. We were a very happy family! I had a lot of fun. We would always shine on the whole world. Every one could see us because we are blue stars and they are the brightest stars ever. I think that this is really crazy because when we see the red stars they are always jealous of us because we are hotter then them.
5: Dear Diary, In my life I know that the childhood is the longest part of my lifetime, because energy is generated in the core of the star as hydrogen atoms fuse into helium atoms, this takes up a lot of energy. I will keep growing but not a lot at a time because I had to keep supply so so much hydrogen atoms to fuse into helium atoms. So I don't grow really fast. But, otherwise during this time period I had the best time! My parents and I would shine on the world! During the month of April was really special to me because thats when I shined the brightest.
6: Dear Diary, Yes! My childhood finished! Yeah! But now for the adulthood, theres more coming for me now. For example, if I am a red giant, a red giant is a star that expands and cools once it uses all of its hydrogen. Then eventually I would then looses the hydrogen that is in the center and the center of the star cools would then shrink. When the center of the star shrinks the atmosphere of the star grows to be big and then cools and forms to be a red giant or a red supergiant.
8: Dear Diary, A sad time in my life, the ending stage. When this is happening I'm becoming a white dwarf, a white dwarf is a small hot star that is the leftover center of an old star. Then in this I have no more hydrogen in my body. :( A white dwarf is basically when my body cant restore any of the energy left so it dies, just like th human body. BUT, I'm not "dead" I still can shine for a very long time until I cool down..
