What I’ve missed.

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 :P

To Be or Not To Be

There are so many things that I could be.

  1. Author

Writing is my passion. I blog, I write poems, I write songs, I write storeys, I’m working on another book. The list goes on. I have been writing for a long time and it really helps me get rid of things that Idon’t want in my life and things that I need to move on from. When something happens with a friend… I write about it. When something happens in my family… I write about it. There was a really hard part of my life that probably lots of people go through and I want to be able to write about it and let the people that are going through it know that there are other people out there who go through the same thing. Writing can help you and other people get through things that are hard and I want to be able to do that and make a difference in some one’s life because of a book. That’s why I want to be an author.

   2. Hair Stylist

I like to be creative and use colour in things. Working with hair helps make other people feel good about how they look and its just so much fun. My mom and sister have friends who are hair dressers and my mom’s friend went to Paris to study painting and is in art school. My sisters friend is really creative and cool and does my sisters hair and it looks awesome. I just really want to be a hair stylist because its so fun and is a great way to be creative and meet some really interesting people.

  3. Motor Cross Racer

This one probably sounds ridiculous because a lot of people think that this kind of thing is for guys. Well no its not just for guys. I have been interested in motor cross racing for a while and ,unfortunately, I will not get the chance to ride as a kid. One because there is no place to ride. Two because the bikes are WAY to expensive. The chance of a life time is what I call it and even though I will most likely never make it close to going pro it would still be an awesome job to have.

  4. A Math Professor

Ah math. To most kids they run away from math and hate it but for me math is the best. Math and Science are my favorite subjects and I am pretty good at it. I like doing equations and chemistry. If not math I want tobe a chemist or something with computers. Math is just so cool and you can solve so many things with different math equations or rules.

  5.A Singer

Just like ever other little girl I always wanted t be a pop star. As I got older I got interested in differant kinds of music. I now want to be in a band or be a solo artist. I write songs adn play guitar and piano. I really enjoy playing music. I want to one day be successful in the music buisness.

Blue Skys

The grass is warm and soft to the touch. The breeze blows my hair around my face.I can hear bird song and see the mountains in the distance. The sky is blue with big puffy clouds that remind me of marshmallows. There’s a slight sweetness to the breeze. The trees seem to sway to some music only they can hear and all of this slowly lulls me into a trance. Memories run through my mind. A crow cries out in a near by tree bringing me back.  The only sound are the cars going by in the distance. A lift drifts by me on the afternoon air. Its so peaceful out here I can think clearly. Suddenly a Yellow buffalo flies through the sky. No I am not crazy its a plane. Such a beautiful day coming to a close and I think I am so lucky… to have a teacher who will let us go outside for an afternoon and do nothing.

A Tribute

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. An amazing man. His voice was a gift to the Hawai’ain islands. He became famous outside of hawaii when his album Facing Future came out in 1993. It had his medley of “some where over the rainbow” and “what a wonderful world” on it which was featured in several movies, TV shows and commercils.

He grew up in Kaimuki were his parents had met and married. In his early teens his family move to Makaha, Hawaii. There he met his soon to be band mates Louis “Moon” Kaukahi, Sam Gray and Jerome Koko. Him and his brother Skippy formed a band with these other four men and called it The Makaha Sons of Ni’ihau. Throughout 1976 to 1980 they toured throughout Hawaii and the USA and the band gained popularity. They also releasled 15 sucessful albums.

In 1982 Iz’s brotehr Skippy Died of a heart attack. In the same year Iz married his child hood sweet heart and soon after they had a daughter whom they named Ceslieanne “Wehi”.

Poor Little Porker

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The water looked so cold. As I walked closer to the edge of the diving board it started to bend and I started to slip. “NOOOOOOOOOO IT’S TO COLD!!!!” I scream. “I’m not ready to die. I see the light!”  The board keeps pointed down and I keep slipping. My tiny frame was shaking. ”HELP I’M FAWING SOMEONE SAVE ME”. No body comes. I’m all alone and I’m going to die. I will fall down into the depths of the water and be gone. I’ll meet the same fate as my father and mother. “NOOOO I’M GOING TO BE BACON!!!!!!!” it was the end for me. I couldn’t hold on any longer. It was time to let go. I slid to the end of the board and tipped right over the edge. “GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD”! The water surrounded me. I was bacon. I can here “poor little porker. He didn’t even have a chance.” And then I go under. All of a sudden I reach the surface. ” I CAN BREATHE!” I scream. I get out of the pool, shake myself off and say “Lets do it again”.

To Blog or Not to Blog…

That is the question.

Ah, blogging. The true way to tell people what you think. If you’re using a pen and paper you can only show the people in your family and the people in your town but blogging makes it so you can tell the world what you’re thinking. I’ve been blogging for about 6 or 7 months and it’s added something to how I write.

Time to compare

I think that if I had the choice between paper and pencil VS. Blogging I would choose blogging. Blogging is a lot easier for me because typing does not take that long and its like playing the piano. Your fingers have to move in the same way. The sound of your fingers against the keyboard and the smooth flow of your hands moving across the keys…you can’t get that from a pencil and paper. Sitting in a class room listening to the teacher talk and talk about language arts and telling us what writing should be from some book compared to just getting to write and let people know what you think all over the world is so much better. Getting to learn in a different way and learn from other students and hear there views on things is (I find) more interesting because its more than just what a book has to teach you. It’s someone else talking.

The Reasoning

I write. I write a lot and to be able to write freely about something that I might be shy about is great. If people like it that’s great, but if they don’t like it its better then standing up in front of a class and have people laugh or point or snicker. You get to connect to people that you would have never met otherwise and you can find out what other classmates are really like. You can make friends with someone in your class that you might not have ever talked to. If you go and read their blog you get to know what their like and who they are.

I could talk forever about how great blogging is but instead if you want to know what it’s like to blog then you should find out for yourself.
