So I haven’t written in a long time and there are some pretty big things I missed out on so heres what I missed since June of last year.
Michael Jackson died. that was a huge hit to the music world. The “King of Pop” gone. I loved his music and his style. He was not afraid of what people thought and he was a romodel in an odd way but still and amazing man. His dancing was amazing and yes I am aware he did not create the moon walk he only made it famous.
THE OLYMPICS!!!! I’m personally regretful for not writing about it because it was only three hours away from where i live. I live on Vancouver Island which is right beside Vancouver and my cousin, who lives there, was lucky enough to go to a hockey game and my brothers friend got to go to two games. Sophie from my class last year got to go to the rehesal for the opening ceremonies. It was such an amazing thing and unfortunatly I missed alot of it because of school but so did most people. My favorite event would have to Snowboarding because I love snowboard cross. If I had the chance to try it I would so go for it. I also really enjoyed the hockey and mogels. It was so cool to watch even on TV. I got to see The Richmond Oval when I was visiting and I also got to see the olympic rings. I’m hoping to go back soon and see the olympic village.
The FIFA World Cup which is still going on right now. I’m not that interested in Soccer but some of my class mates wouldn’t be able to live without it. We have gotten the chance to watch some of the games in class on the overhead. I’m really happy that its in South Africa this year because they deserve to have another amazing event. They had the Rugby world cup but when Nelson Mandela was still the presidant which was such an amazing thing for them and I can’t imagian what it would be like to have that kind of honor. espescially because of what the country has gone though.
So those are the things that have happened in the past year that are important to the rest of the world and now I’m going to move on to the things that have been really important to me in the past year.
This year my volleyball came 22nd out of 35 in our Provincials which was so great to be a part of and get to be a co-captian of the team. We did so well compared to how we’ve done in past years. Next year I hope we can do even better at Provincials and make it to nationals. That would be truly amazing to get that chance
Ukrainian dance this year was just an amazing experiance. I was able to help teach a class and I hope to continue with that next year. At the Mission Ukrainian dance festival every age group was able to win a gold for there dance and a bronze for our whole group dance. It was great to be a part of such a big family in more of a way by getting to be a part of my little kids class. They seem to really like me and I really enjoyed teaching them.
So that’s whats happened this year that I never wrote about. That should just about catch you up
