Badminton! Oh My Life I love Badminton. Well now I do. I thought it was a game for old people, but now that I have got a hang on it. It is one of my favourite games. You may be thing that a gay game well it not.
It all started on the 11Th of August. My class Room 18 were going to have a game of Badminton. We didn’t know that we were going to have a professional come in and teach us. As soon as we found out that a pro badminton player was going to come in and teach us. I said in my head “ Oh no a professional this is going to be so BORING”. First we had to get the hang of holding a racket. It was really weird how we had to hold it. I can’t explain it. But we held it in a funny way!
She blew her whistle. Then she told us to get a shuttle and start hitting it was a rackets. At first I thought this will be easy, but then we I tired doing it, but it just so difficult. So I focused on my shuttle I hit it about 15 time with out stopping. I tyred my best I just could not do it. So I bid it again but this time I was running from one side of the hall to the other. It felt like I just finished running around the whole school 2 times. She blew her whistle again I was so happy she did. I was puffed out like a lion chasing an bird.

Then we got in to a group of 2’s.Cecilia was with me. Then I thought to my self “ I am having fun, But I can’t believe I am” Cecilia and I started hitting the shuttle forwards and back. We had a challenge who can keep hitting the shuttle with out letting it fall on the floor. We did try our best but we only hit it forwards and back 53 times. That was a challenge. A least we tired our best and didn’t give up straight away. It was a lot of fun. But I have ever experience a thing like this. I did struggling a bit. But I had an amazing time.

I wish I could do that again! Maybe I might you ever know. I just want to say that don’t judge the game by the name, because you ever know what it is like. Don’t be me and think things are going to be boring, because it is always good to try new things.

Ohh My Life Cross Country..

Cross Country. Do you like Cross Country because I don’t! I am so not looking forwards to it. I didn’t know that cross country was coming up until the day before it was going to happen.

Oh my life... No way Cross Country. I HATE cross country! Do you know why I hate it? Because I hate running I am not fit. NO, I thought to myself I can run home and run to school, I sure that is good enough I think! I so do not feel like RUNNING. I hope I make it to the end and not come last. I can just imagine me coming first for the first time in my life. I would be so happy! But that will never happen. I know it.

The next day, I woke up getting ready for cross country. I didn’t really want to go but I knew I had work to finish. So I went anyways. As soon as Mrs V said year 7 girls stand at the start line. My butterflies hit me with a big pong. I was so scared that I may come last. But I believed in myself, and gave it my all. “BANG” I started running with all my might. Then I got so tried I had to start jogging.

5 minters later! Running thought the brush walk was like running up a big hill with many different levels. All you could see me doing was going up down up down all over again. As soon as I got to Mr Jacobson I have only stopped about 3 times. I felt like I was going to faint so I started to power-walk. So I did that until I go to the school fetch. As soon as I stopped I started running with all the power I had ins me. Ya I have passed the finish line.

That felt like a nightmare! I really HATE Cross Country now. You should of seen me I dropped on the ground and said that is my fitness for the rest of the year! But I have a question for all the people reading. How was your Cross Country? Thanks for reading.

School! School! School!

This Term has been an awesome term even. But it has only been one week of school.
I wish this term NEVER ends! I just can’t wait to learn more things about other countries.

What I have liked so far was, learning what the real stories be hide most of the flags and learning more about place’s around Auckland. Have you ever heard of a place called Hot water beach? Well I have never heard of that place. Then people have been telling me about what they did there. It sounds like a DREAM. I bet it was. I wish I could go to Hot water beach.

I am really looking forwards to find out more different countries. I am very exited about what we will be learning, but the country that I really what to learn about is South Africa. South Africa sounds like an awesome place to see and help. Most of the countries have some amazing story's. I am really looking forwards to finding interesting facts about New Zealand and other places in the world.

I really hope that I find out more things about South Africa. But what I have learnt so far, has just amazed me. Next time you hear from me I will be writing about my Cross Country.

This Term!

This term I started school with a kick! I was so happy school started, because holidays were extremely boring. But spending time with my family was awesome...., I just loved it!!

My goals this term is to focus on my work and finish them off properly! Listen to my teacher and make the right choices, so that I can get higher in all my subject in school. To try hard and learn different things, that I have no idea about. What is really cool is making new friends and get ideas to that I can use in life.

I am looking forwards to finding interesting things about the other 20 country's that are coming to New Zealand, for the rugby world cup! GO ALL BLACKS! The country that I real want to learn more about is South Africa because I am very interested of what they have to say. I love rugby but don’t know much about it.

What I think is really interesting is, that there are story behind all the flags. Because you will never know what the story behind the flags are.
Here one. Search for the Namibia flag then read this. RED- represents Namibia’s most important resource, the people of Namibia.WHITE- refers to peace and hope. GREEN- symbolizes vegetation and agricultural resources. BLUE-represents the clear Namibian sky and the Atlantic Ocean, the country's precious water resources and rain! The yellow sun represents life and energy. Now was int that interesting, because I though it was so amazing! You will never know what the story behind the flags are about.

I hope that I learn more things about other country’s, because if I travel around the world I will all really know things about that country! So my knowledge that I learn will help me in later in my life. But I have a question for you what are you goals and what are you looking forwards to? Please comment and tell me about your self.Thank you for reading this!
