When I came here in August, I expected a easy and painless year. How hard could seventh grade be? But, I was dead wrong. I soon realized that this would be a long year. By October I never had free time. There was always something school related to do. Even on the no homework night I was catching up. Late starts just let me sleep in 30 minutes. But, I realized that there was time in the cracks of the day that I could do homework. In the seventh grade I learned that you should not procrastinate because you just dig a bigger hole of homework. Always do extra credit because the extra boost really helps. Lastly I learned that teachers will always help you. If I could do it again my advice would be never ever ever procrastinate.
Leaders are the ones jump in feet first.
Leaders carve out the path for others.
Leaders are quick thinkers and even faster improviser.
Leaders are not always adored but always followed.
Leaders show compassion and malice when it is due.
Leaders are loyal to anyone who shows loyalty to them.
Leaders never flinch, or stutter.
Leaders are the risk-takers.
Leaders are the ones who we follow.
Nobody by: Shel Silverstein
“Nobody loves me, nobody cares,
Nobody picks me peaches and pears.
Nobody offers me candy and Cokes,
Nobody listens and laughs at me jokes.
Nobody helps when I get into a fight,
Nobody does all my homework at night.
Nobody misses me,
Nobody thinks I’m a wonderful guy.
So, if you ask me who’s my best friend, in a whiz,
I’ll stand up and tell you NOBODY is!
But yesterday night I got quite a scare
I woke up and Nobody just WASN’T there!
I called out and reached for Nobody’s hand,
In the darkness where Nobody usually stands,
Then I poked through the house, in each cranny and nook,
But I found SOMEBODY each place that I looked.
I seached till I’m tired, and now with the dawn,
There’s no doubt about it-
This is one of my favorite poems since I was a kid.
All I ever wanted when I was eight was a Pokemon game. I had seen my brother play every game they had released. Blue, red, gold, silver, yellow, sapphire, ruby, emerald, you name it. Any Pokemon game that existed he had played. All I wanted was Pokemon Pearl, and soon my dreams would become true.It was a rainy afternoon, my favorite weather, and it was my birthday. I saw on top of a very small pile of gifts a small square shaped box wrapped in a vibrant orange paper. As i opened it i caught a glimpse of purple-pinkish and eggshell-white Pokemon. I immediately knew what i had received had in my hands.
It was the best game I had ever played. Nothing could compare to the sheer fun of the game. It has all new Pokemon, and even a separate island to go to after you beat the game. While I played it I was able to challenge friends, family and even random people. Nothing matches the joy of beating you older brother on his own game. Thats why I have the friends I have today. Without it I don’t know where i would’ve ended up today.
Thai, how are you, this is one of the many weird things that makes Austin, Texas a interesting place to live.
Austin is a interesting place because there is always something new or weird. For instance, as I said earlier have you ever seen a frog painted on a small Thai-food restaurant that greets you with “Hi how are you.”
Also Austin is where cowboys meet hipsters. The culture of Austin is unlike no other. Events like Austin-City-Limits Music Festival, and a pool maintained by a natural spring are some attractions not seen anywhere else. Austin has many local businesses you wouldn’t see many other places.
From frogs to blogs Austin always has something new. Austin is sitting just out of the top ten in population and has a average age 4 years below the average U.S age. So if your ever in Texas; you should stop on by.
The Illegal Maple Syrup Trade is basically Americans trying to get on of the only good thing exported from Canada- Maple Syrup. One thing you can not doubt is the greatness of Canadian maple syrup. For ages people have tried to replicate the great Canadian maple, Virginian maple syrup, Michigan maple syrup, and even Wisconsin maple syrup- it’s just not the same. Me, I have my Canadian getting me my daily serving of maple syrup. I highly recommend you take part in this trade. P.S it is not illegal.
“BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!” Oh great… Oh no… No! No! No! It can’t be monday again, the worst day in existence.
For instance Monday is annoying, because you are tired-drowsy even from staying up late and being at activities. For example you may of had a huge project that you spent the whole weekend on and yet, you forgot it due to tiredness. Monday can be Rough!
Regardless of all of this, Teacher still pack the homework on your day back from a two-day long vacation. Tiredness combined with homework go hand in hand on the “PAAAIIIIINNNNNN TRRRAAAIIIIINNNNN!” For example one hour of alert homework is equivalent to three hour of tired-sleepy homework.
Honestly, Monday has no one given thing that make it terrible- it’s just a combo of every bad thing combined. Whether it’s the tired-homework combo, or the classic forgot-your-homework and your mind can’t come up with a excuse combo, or anything else. Mondays can also not be eliminated because you know what comes in the next seven day-well-“Beep! Beep! Beep!”
Filming has just begun for Sharknado 2, The Aftershark. This time it is staged in New York, and is just as low budget as the first one. Its coming out this summer and I highly recommend you watch it. Sharknado might not have good stage direction, effects, playwright, or even good actors but, where else are you gonna find a TORNADO OF SHARKS!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway looking forward to it and hope you are too.
I’m back on the couch eating queso and recovering from extreme fiery chicken wings that I thought I could muster. It’s Super Bowl time again. Whether you’re Broncos or Sea hawks you must be looking forward to it, and most of all, remember Snacks! Snacks! Snacks! You can’t truly appreciate the Superbowl if you don’t come prepared for, i’ts just not the same. For my team preference I want the Sea hawks to win but if I were to bet on it; I would pick the Broncos winning, but hopefully I will get over the patriots losing (2014 never forget). So when Super Bowl Sunday comes be ready for some game.
I can say with out a doubt that a lot of you most likely suffer from “having to clean you room syndrome.” This can be caused by your mom or dad walking into your room and saying “this place looks like a dumpster.” I personally, have this disease primarily because my bed takes up 80% of my room. The other 20 percent consists of a desk that can barely fit in so as you can see I am very crowded so things get a little messy. I don’t know your story but, I bet it’s one of laziness and crowdedness. So let your voice be heard if you have this and spread awareness.
