My Blog Of The Week

Well to start off my week on Monday it was kind of ok until I woke up and my mom was coming to school with me to talk to my teacher and the new vice principal.  She is nice but when me and my mom walked into the office she was like my step mom.  My mom and the vice principal where like best friends. They understood my problem.  The only thing was that I was not listing or doing my work that I was suppose to be doing in class.

But on Tuesday I was on fire!  I did two pages of math in two and a half periods.  When I was done I got 3 minutes of free time.  I was kind of happy that I got to have free time on the computer without the teacher telling me to close it.  That was like this second hardest I ever worked in my whole life.

On Wednesday I was nice for half the day, then I flipped on my gym teacher but everything went well.

On Thursday I did not know what I was doing.  I just went crazy on my music and English teacher.  I was in the office for most of the day.  But at lunch time I went to help out my family studies teacher.  I’m getting an 80% in that class. Maybe Family Studies and Math are the only two subjects I like and I am good at.

Today is Friday.  I was here doing this blog for one period straight and now I was just told I have to have this blog done in the next 15 minutes.  Today after school I am going to the big mall in the area with my friends.

On Saturday I might chill the block and go to my friend’s house.

On Sunday I will play on the computer and see my friends at the movies to chill and play games.  They will watch a movie but I don’t know what it is called.  They said it is a good movie.

Activity Day

I told you before about how I singed up for Activity Day.  This is what I got.  I’m going to Rinx (that is how they spell it).  I can’t wait!  It is on Feb 12.  We were only supposed to be doing two things at Rinx but they changed it and now we are doing roller skating, laser tag, cosmic bowling and whirly ball.  Plus you get all you can eat pizza and drink.  Just for $30.00.  Cool huh?  The sad thing is there was two other thing you could go two like the ROM or the science museum but (and I’m not lying no joke) only three people singed up for the science museum.  Also for the ROM only four people singed up.  I fell sorry for the teachers who have that job. The two biggest hits are the Rinx (no duh) and skating.  I can’t wait to go.

Me moving to a new school

Every year I always have to move to a different school. So I didn’t get to have many friends because every time I got close to them I always ended up leaving. Every time I lift I had to pack up my stuff say bye to my friends and my house and leave. Then when I get to the house I had to adjusts to the now house and the school. When I got to grade 5 I got bet up the first week or school so then I was out over school for the whole September and the first week of October. Then I got put in to a new school and the teacher thought I was giving her dirty looks because the way my eyes are but I wasn’t. So I kept getting in trouble because she thought I was giving her dirty looks. Then I got mad and I had to leave.  At the school I am now, I have friends and I got to stay here for 2 years. But next year I will be moving again to Montréal so I would have to make now friends again. So as you can see it’s hard moving to new schools every year, but staying in one place like this school makes things a lot easier.

Qualities Of Heroes

     Qualities, what are qualities? Qualities are something that describes a person or a group of people like heroes. Heroes show a lot of good qualities. The heroes that I wrote about are Mother Teresa, Anne Frank, and the Dalai Lama. The qualities that I wrote about are leadership, character, and helpful.

     Leadership is a great quality that all heroes should have. Leadership means that you’re not following everyone else but you’re going your own way and making other people follow you. Mother Teresa is a good example of a person who showed leadership. She left home to join and help lead an order of nuns in Ireland. From there, she learned English and trained as an educator. Then she followed her dream and went to India to teach. When she was there, she went to St. Mary’s convent in Calcutta. At 21 she took her first religious vows and received the name Sister Teresa. In 1946 she got a second call to devote herself completely to the poor. In 1979 she won the Nobel Peace Prize. She was only the sixth woman in history to receive this award. Mother Teresa used the cash award to open homes for lepers and build more centers for the poor and dying. In 1996 Mother Teresa became an honorary citizen of the United States and the following year was given the congressional gold Medal of Honor. Her selfless example of helping the whole world touched millions of people. Her exact words were, ‘’ If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.’’ These are some of the ways Mother Teresa showed leadership, a quality that all heroes should have. 

     Character, what is character? Character is different qualities that describes a person, group or thing that shows moral strength. But what does moral means? Moral mean trying to fight for something that’s wrong and to make it right. One person that I think shows a lot of character is Anne Frank. In 1942, on Anne’s sister’s 16 birthday, her family found out that her sister was going to be deported to a Nazi labor camp. So her family decided to go into hiding so she didn’t have to go to the Nazi camp. Anne Frank showed character because while everyone else was doing nothing about what was happening she wrote in her diary everything that went on. After she died, her diary got published in 1947 and became known world wide. I know that you’re probably thinking how did she show character by doing that? She showed character because what she wrote in her diary made everyone aware of what really happened to all the Jews. Anne Frank is a real hero and if I was her I would have done the same thing. It’s like she said, “In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good in heart.”  I think we should all remember her. So this is how Anne Frank showed character. 

     Another important quality for a hero to have is to be helpful.  Being helpful means that you assist people that really need it.  The Dalai Lama is helpful because he tried to help China and Tibet come together. People think that the Dalai Lama is bad but he’s really not. At the age of two his parents knew that he was the thirteenth Dalai Lama leader of Tibet.  In 1950, China took over Tibet and told the Tibetan government that if they did tell their people that they now belonged to China, they would get killed. So, then at night the Dalai Lama snuck out of Tibet and went to hide in the neighboring country. The Dalai Lama goes around helping different kinds of people around the world. In 1989, the Dalai Lama was awarded the Noble Peace Prize which he accepted on behalf of the people of Tibet. What happen to the Dalai Lama was bad but at least he’s not dead. This is how the Dalai Lama is helpful.              

     Admirable qualities are something that all heroes share. The reason why they share these qualities is because they’ve all done things to help other people or the world. Heroes come in all different shapes, sizes, colures, genders, sexes, and even religions. Even though some of the heroes might have died, they’ve all made positive marks that we can all remember and carry on.
