In school we are working on this project called young entrepreneur fair. We each have to make and sell a product. This is what im doing for my product: I am making squirmy wormys. They are little pocket pets that you can carry around with you. They love attention and love to be pet. When you pet them they respond like a real worm and squirm around. I will will be donating 10% of my profit to a charity in the end. We will be selling our products int he gym to all of students and parents at our school.
This season of basketball was amazing! Our team did really well and had great games. The amount of interceptions, passing, rebounds and just over all awesome plays! We didn’t win very many games but we played really good. I loved the team because every one was so supportive of one and other. I was really proud of how I played this season and I think that it was my highlight of this term. My favourite game was the last game of our tournament because we were tied with the other team and we only had five second left and i made the winning shot.
Our coach, Mrs.Roberson is amazing because she made our team who we are now. Even the smallest drills made a difference. She came to almost all of our games and cheered us on. She would give us little pep talks on the bench after the shift. She always made a bad shift better at the end.
Lets talk about drills, they were what made our team improve. Here are two of my favourite drills: The first one is when she sets up and “obstical course” it would have cones that we weave in and out of, we would go do lay ups and at the very end we would run through the ladders (not real ladders). My second favourite drill is king of the court. In this drill you have to dribble your ball and stay in control while trying to knock the other players ball out of the boundary.
Over all this is just a thank you to the basketball team and Mrs.Robertson. Do you play basketball?
I was thinking about our world. I started to realize that there are a few things that I would change about our world, and here they are:
First things first. I bet you if you were to walk to school in the morning that you would see this stuff every where. It’s garbage. Holy cow… do people not know how to simply carry their garbage with them till they reach a garbage can? I wish that some of the works people in small towns could install more garbage cans. Even in big cites they can put more garbage cans. At least try, just try for me a seventh grader in a small town. Please just pick up your garbage.
The second thing is that we need more kindness in our world. In kindergarten we were taught to be kind to each other and to share. But I feel like so many people have forgotten how to be kind. Even just saying something as simple and small like I love your shirt today or doing an act of kindness. Or you could do something big and make someones day. It’s not that hard to compliment someone.
This one just sends me off the rails with anger. It’s animal abuse. This is just a cliche saying but “imagine if someone bigger then you decides to invade your space and hurt you”. For the past little while I have been collecting old sheets in my house to donate to the SPCA and Kitty Cat Pals in the Comox Valley. It’s also true for abusing each other. I just wish that we could see each other equal to each other. We are all humans living on this earth.
This is a really short post but I hope that it has a strong message. Just please be kind to everyone you meet and imagine a world with none of this stuff.
As a class we watched this really short video about death in space. We all chose one funny death and wrote a story about it. I chose this one…
I’m the most talented astronaut on planet earth. I have been to planets that no other human has been to. Mars, Jupitar, Saturn and I have also been to Pluto before it wasn’t classified as a planet.
But this planet was something that you wouldn’t see in your local library’s selection of space books. It was called Blurpymelrpy. That day that I landed I was so excited I bolted out the metal spaceship door and forgot my space helmet. I realized that you didn’t need one on Blurpymelrpy. I continued on this long journey to find life on this new planet.
I had been trekking around this planet for five extremely long hours. Suddenly, I spot an over-sized mushroom. I approach it and look up. My neck hurts so bad because I had to look up so high.
After staring at it for a very long time, I decide to start climbing up . As I reach the top there is a very pretty view of the whole planet. As I take a closer look I glance at what looks to be a old straw birds nest. I get a closer look and I start to think that its not an old birds nest. I calmly walk towards it like I was telling the baby monsters that I was friendly. They start to panic and screech.
I had never had to try and calm down a monster before. I pick one up like a tiny human baby and try to rock it back to sleep in my arms. That’s when I herd a large screech behind me! I look to see a larger version of the babies. It lands on the same funky mushroom as me. Right before I can yell for help I eats me. This was the weirdest experience. I got eaten by a blue and pink monster bird. I went through the whole digestive process. Even the last part…But I survived.
If you were to choose how you died in space how would you die?
Spring is coming! That means that the flowers will start blooming and the rain will keep on coming. I am excited to start to see stuff coming up out of the ground making it beautiful! My favourite type of flowers are tulips! I love the variety of colour that they come in. But what im most excited for is spring break. Here are four of the things that im excited for.
Me and my friend Kassidy did this last year so we are hoping that we can do it again this year: We went down island to Victoria for one night and stayed in a hotel right by the parliament building. At 9:00 pm we went out in our pajamas out to see the lights that they put up on it! We also went to Chinatown and visited all the cute little shops. I hope that we can do it again this year!
My dad is working on a small ski hill right now on the main land! He said that I might be able to come stay out there with him and go skiing. There are snow mobiles that I might be able to drive. I really hope that I can go visit the ski hill!
I’m really eager to start working on my garden. I haven’t look at my backyard for a while, mainly because I don’t want to see what a mess my garden looks like after all these storms. I can’t wait to go pick out some pretty flowers to plant in my hanging baskets.
I’m excited to just spend time with my family and all of my favourite animals. Even if we don’t do anything I’m happy that I just get to hang out with family and friends. I can hopefully start horse riding again. I had to take some time off because of how cold it is out and because the ring started getting flooded.
What is spring like where you live? Do you like spring?
Ahhh the good old Comox Valley. If you didn’t know that’s where I live, in a small town with lots to do! We live so close to the beach, the mountains and the forest so if you say that there is nothing to do you are lying.
One of my favourite places to visit is Hot Chocolates! They have the best little cafe with cookies, candy and drinks. Its always fun to go out to Hot Chocolates and sit down with a friend and talk. My favourite thing at Hot Chocolates is their delicious sugar cookies or their extremely sugary Italian sodas. I love how kind all the workers are. I love looking at all of their candy and chocolates. Sometimes I just want to buy it all. They have a huge variety of jelly beans… yum!
My next favourite place in the valley is where I do boxing. I always feel so at home when I’m there! Every one in the gym is encouraging and fun to hang out with! If im not having a good day, as soon as I walk into the gym I get a huge smile on my face. I also like that its located close to the river. After my class finishes I can hear the rushing river when I leave. When you walk in you get a brisk smell of sweat, but our coach has brainwashed us to tell say that it’s the smell of “champions”.
My third favourite spot in the Comox Valley is Mt.Washington. I absolutely love skiing. Every weekend I try and go up skiing during the season. One of my favourite parts of the mountain is the back side or in the park. I really enjoy just hanging out with some of my friends and skiing. Some people read a book or have a nap when they want to relax. But with me, I go skiing and ski all of my worries away. I love going up early in the morning and make the first ski tracks in the fresh fluffy powder. Sometimes I hate going up the mountain when its cold,windy and snowy. The worst part is when they stop the chair lift when you are half way up and its windy. If you have never been skiing a chair lift is what brings you up the mountain.
Where are your favourite things about where you live? Do you have any favorite places?
