In Language Arts we made a drawing of our brain. My brain had all the things that stick in my mind. Most of my brain was sports, T.V., friends, family, Xbox, etc.. All these things make up my life. It was a very fun project.
iPads were an interesting experience. It was productive because I used it in every class but math, and of course PE. I don’t think we used it in math because we had many class notes to do, and we were very busy. I used the iPads in many ways. I used my iPad the most for homework. I also used it to keep track of my homework. I liked the iPad because it kept me a lot more organized than I really am. iPads were a great experience, and am looking forward to using it next year!

If I had to give a memory, it would be me watching a movie. The reason why I would give away this memory because it is relaxing, with popcorn, soda, and candy. It would also be very interesting in that community because they have no such thing. I would probably show a sports movie because they don’t have sports either.
My body was shaking vigorously, my hands and feet were sweating from fear. Will I die, or will I live with a stranger? I don’t know if I should trust the queen that signaled right to me. I looked at the audience, hoping for either a really bloody death, or a really funny marriage. Should I trust the queen? Or should I just make my own decision?
Then, I decided to choose the right door. Why would the princess want me to die? She loved me with all her heart, so why would she get rid of me? I saw it in her eyes, glaring at me with obvious fear. I could tell that she cared by looking at my eyes. But on the other side, I saw the king, wanting me to die from pain and torture from a hungry tiger. “Right,” I whispered with fear.
The doors were so colossal that three powerful guards had to pull with all their might. I wanted to look one more time around the castle, just in case I will meet the tiger with my “hilarious” death. The room smelled like fried chicken, with many elaborate decorations. When they opened the door, I saw nothing but a tremendously long, fat, creature. Finally, when it stepped out, out came a fat tiger challenging me to a duel. It ran up to me, but before I fell to my death, I ran up to the princess, gave her a smooch on the forehead, and died.
Even to this day in my reincarnation, I wonder why she killed me.
In class, we are reading a book called Cosmic. It is about a boy named Liam, who is very tall for his age. So he fakes his age, and his fake daughter, Florida, goes on a trip because they won a prize to go to China. Liam has a magazine he brought along called Talk To Your Teen, to make him seem more like a dad.
If I were to add something to that, I would add to make sure your kid doesn’t get a bunch of junk food. Because if you do, they might get health problems later in their life. They also won’t have good nutrition. I think that it’s important to not eat lots of junk food.
If you need a book to read, you’re covered! I recommend A Dog’s Purpose, by W. Bruce Cameron. It may seem a little long, with about 570 pages, but you won’t be able to stop reading! I liked this book because it was unique, talking about an amazing dog going through totally different lives. The other reason is that W. Bruce Cameron has a great imagination and can turn that into great books. As the dog goes through different lives, it also goes through different purposes as well.
In class we did a grammar project. I did first, second, and third person. First person has to refer to the speaker, using words like, I, me, mine, and more. Second person is used to address the reader. You use third person when you’re referring to a person, place, thing, or idea. You cannot use first and second person in the same sentence.

In October, some of our advisories went to a sweet potatoe farm to feed the hungry, called gleaning. For 2 hours we picked potatoes to feed the hungry. When we got to the farm we paired up to bag the potatoes and pick the potatoes. First, we just started picking the potatoes just to help them, but in about 20 minutes it became a competition between our group and another.
Each bag was about 10 pounds! The competition got real intense, each of us picking potatoes, bagging them, and storing them in the trucks. People started joining our group, and their group, and soon it was 7 against 5. After 2 hours of picking the potatoes, we came up with 125 sweet potato bags, making up about 1,250 pounds of potatoes. The competition made it really fun, and I felt really good because we just fed thousands of people who are fighting hunger.
I am proud of my mini garden. It was about two years ago when we planted a fruit and vegetable garden. I had to help make it, but I thought it would be pretty boring and lame to help. So we started planting all these plants, got bit by mosquitos, and stuck pulling annoying little weeds. Besides that, it was pretty cool but not really all that fun. After a while, all these vegetables started growing including peppers and many others. My mom told me to give it water every day. Even though I gave it water once every two days it still grew. Every summer we made a garden. Right now we are growing peppers and watermelon. The watermelon is really big, growing day by day. I can’t wait to eat it!
