It's coming to the end of the year and my class came up with a good idea to right a letter of advice to the future grade 6's and 7's so this is the one I wrote for the future grade 6's
Yesterday my class and I did the grouse grind again. It was so much fun but you know what made it worth it . . . I beat my first time by 12 minutes. My first time was 1 hour 15 minutes but this time I got 1 hour 3 minutes, so I was prett happy about that. When I made it to the top with my one of my best friends EBcheifgamer we went into the nice and warm chalet after we cheered a couple others on. We got a delicious hot chocolate and then we headed out to watch the lumberjack show. It was a very fun
To this day
by Shane Koyczan
Today we watched a video by the famous Canadian poet Shane Koyczan. It was about the horrible thing we call bullying. It was very powerful and had many quotes that have made a major impact on me.
Right away I connected to this clip because I have seen it happen to my friends and it’s even happened to myself. trust me bullying isn’t a good thing. It is a horrible thing that can break someone’s spirit with just one word. They say names don’t hurt as much as broken bones. well, they’re wrong. One word can lead to more words and more hurt and possibly drive people to kill themselves. people may feel they will never find love, that they will have no one to look out for them and that they are a useless waist of space. Don’t tell me that doesn’t hurt more than a broken bone.
I have felt that way many times from bullies and so have my friends but you have to keep moving. Put a cast on your broken heart, and believe that they are wrong, believe that you have potential when no one else thinks so. Believe that what they say isn’t true because it isn’t. When you feel like the whole world is against you, you keep moving and believe in yourself because that is what drives you. Ignore what they say because the only opinion that matters is your own.
I have this favorite qoute that I got from the clip and it has a very powerful meaning to me
“If you don’t see anything beautiful about yourself get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer because there is something inside you to keep going even when everyone told you to quite.” That is my favorite qoute and that will stick with me forever.
And remember click to this day at the top and you will go straight to the amazing video.
What is tubing you ask, well if you have ever been on a water slide where you have to sit in the ig rubber tube, if yes then it's pretty much the same thing but in the snow; and it's really fun. It didn't take long to get up considering it's a mountain. I went with some friends because we were celebrating my moms birthday which is today. It was also the first time being on cypress and my first time i went tubing, and if you haven't been its really fun trust me. So i hope you all had a very happy holidays and happy new year to all.
I have Christmas traditions that I do every year. Every year my family and I go to a tree farm called Fernridge and they have all the best trees, it takes a while to find the perfect one but when we do that's when the fun begins. My brother and I always chop down the tree and carry it out to the lot all by ourselves, then when we've got the tree we always go into this little barn with a concession stand where we always get a couple hot dogs and hot chocolate. Another tradition we have is this hand crafted wooden advent calender that is a tree ad in each little door there is a decoration and there are little hooks so you can hang them on it. We also have a Christmas party every year with all my family members so it's a pretty big party but its always so much fun. I love my traditions because they remind me of how much my family loves me and that's how traditions were made, they were actions to bring a family together.
Yesterday I went to castle fun park for an end of term celebration. It was really fun especially when I wet mini golfing with Motop and Adidas in the coral sea course. It was like we were under water with all the fish hanging from the ceiling and the different holes. We even had to putt inside an Octopus. After our adventure under the sea we went to the go kart track which was even more fun because I was drifting on all the turns even though I wasn't supposed to. Then from there we went to the bumper cars which wasn't very good for my neck. Unfortunately someone stole the ten bucks out of my pocket so I only got to play two games and I ended up watching everyone else have fun, either than that it was fun. If you've ever been to castle fun park post in the comments and tell me how your trip was.
This weekend I had a tournament in Nanaimo B.C. which is on Vancouver Island so my team and I had to take a ferry. I mostly spent my time playing a racing but I didn't spend any money because our goalie had twenty dollars of toonies; so we played thirteen games(which was a record for games played) and I beat him in every race. When we got to the island we drove to a best western about twenty minutes form the port moody ferry docks and it was pretty good too. We had two games that day and we won them both which is good because it got us to the finals. The next day we had four games, the first was just a normal game, but the next was the quarter finals and we won that so the next game was the semi finals. The semi finals was easy because we won 9-0, but then we got to the finals. That was the most challenging game I've ever played. It was against a team from north Vancouver and they were really good but at the end of the game we won 5-3 and when the last buzzer went it was like the 2010 winter Olympics when we through up our gloves and crouded our finishing goalie because we have two in the corner and it was the first first tournament that my coach has won w
This weekend my brother had a hockey tournament in Kirkland U.S.A. It was really fun because his entire team played mini hockey in the hallways but this one cranky lady would always ruin the fun. We had this banquet hall reserved for us and we used for a pizza party/mini hockey room. When we were playing everybody was wearing mustache tattoos on their faces, even the girls and parents who didn't have mustaches wore them and it was hilarious. My brothers team is really good and they ended up winning the tournament. Tournaments are my favourite because you get to bond with your teammates and it makes your team better.
Today I had a volleyball game against a couple other schools. I am really good at my overhand serves and my spikes. My second game we played me my friend and I made the best play ever. He went for the ball and volleyed it up to me, I volley it to my teammate behind me, he bumps it up to my friend and he volleys it up to me for the spike. After we did and got the point it ended up being the game winning one and that was even better. Volleyball is so fun so if you have the chance to join a team don't let the opportunity pass by.
Rememberance day was 2 days ago but i still want to talk about it. Rememberance day is the day when we remember the soldiers that have served our country so we can be safe it is a very serious day. I had family members that were in world war 2 so every rememberance day I go to cemetary where they were buried and my parents usually cry. I will never take what our soldiers have done for granted so lest we forget.
