|My Learning journey 7|
Highschool is coming up and I have to admit I am really excited. But nervous even more so. The reason I am excited is that in Highschool, there are many more options for things to learn. I have most of my regular classes but I also have many options like wood shop, metal shop, cooking, band, art, drama and many more. I could learn so many things that will be useful in the practical life. I think that will be really cool. I am also hoping that by being in Highschool I will learn better working habits. That is also part of my problem. Honestly in elementary school the work is to easy and when I finish my work my mind just drifts off somewhere. Therefore since i don't have to try hard in school I have terrible working habits. My Mom and Dad always say to me: "work hard or in Highschool you won't know what hit you!" and I have a hard time realizing that. So I think my working habits will really set back my learning and also improve drastically in Highschool. But I really hope my learning habits don't put me back in school. And I sadly just realized that math has been the only subject I really listened to. In math or science I know a bit but Im guessing not enough. Anyway those are my thoughts about Highschool.
Today I had speech fest and It was nerve wracking. As I got up to the front of the class I took 3 deep breaths and I started. My was meant to be roughly 3:20 minutes. The reason that it 2:30 minutes is that I forgot some of it and decided That if I forgot I will just skip the part and move on.
After I finished I felt light and happy. I was glad it was over and now I only have to wait for my results. If you have had a similar experience than post a comment below.
Dubstep is a "art of music" but of course there are other great things such as classics. But it has this feel that gives you adrenaline and excited. It is good for pvp (player vs player) Montages. Dubstep is mainly a mix of cool sounding electric sounds. There are many artists but I will post all the ones I like and enjoy listening to: Monstercat, Tristam, Razihel, Excision, WaterFlame, DJVI, Pegboardnerds, KDrew and SoNevable. They have some great pieces make sure to check them out on youtube and listen to there pieces. Dubstep gets me pumped and sometimes when I have nothing else to do I focus on the music and sounds like reverb in my skull. like its generated there. Try that next time you listen to any music. Sit and focus on the music and you will know what I mean.
Dubstep is only one type of music and you should definitely listen to music.
Lately I have been feeling like I am getting better at basketball. It used to be: Oh, He got the ball again. When is my shift off, sigh... Now its a: When am I going on, or a: Lets drive this to the hoop! Basketball is very fast paced and its a all adrenaline until you slowly jog back to your side. The feeling of the high jump for the lay-up. The wind on my face and the shouts of: "go! go! go!" and "go check him!" when i'm driving across the floor to the basket to get yet another 2 points for my team are amazing. The woosh of someone running by as I deke someone out is awesome. That is my current basketball feel. Maybe It will change to the better or to the worse. What are your feelings toward basketball and do you agree with me? All your thoughts in the comments section.
OVer the holidays for my family and I was a great time. We celebrate New Years and Hanukkah like said on the blog below. For Hanukkah because of the fact of it lasting 8 days we get 8 days of presents! Not to be greedy but man the awesome! Also we celebrate NewYears which we get one present on NewYears day. For Hanukkah which comes first, except the last day we got cash and chocolate coins. My little brother once he found out there were chocolate coins in the morning he woke up early so he could take everyones and eat them before anyone woke up which was pretty funny when we first found out. Anyway on all the days of Hanukkah every night we light one more candle than the night before. On the first night we had 2 candles: the one that mattered and the one we used to light the one that mattered. so at the end we had 9 candles. On one of the last day of Hanukkah we had a party with 20 guest! I don't know how everyone fit in the house but they did. We had a buffet sort of dinner (if you don't know what a buffet is it's a meal of the day where all the food is laid out on a table or more and everyone takes what they want). It was fun. Than in the basement we had a disco thing were I flashed lights on a disco ball we had and placed cellophane strips of different colours over it to make cool different lights. I also was the DJ so I chose a lot of upbeat music for people to dance to and My little brother was rolling around making guitar moves and going nuts because he had a lot of sugar. It was hilarious. After that we went to a friends house for the last day of Hanukkah and played a lot of games and lit the last candle. But before we went to our friends house we got our presents. They are bigger and better than the first 7 days presents. I got a Clarinet mouthpiece which is really nice. It is blue and see-through and it makes a really nice sound. But the way you hold it with your mouth must be stronger. My brother got headphones which is kind of unfair but I have a headset which i am happy about so its not so bad. My even younger brother got a new transformer. Than a few days later it was NewYears! For new years we did not want a tree in our house so we made one. My mom hung ornament from the ceiling in the shape of a tree. Thats was our "tree" For the holidays. That was my holidas pretty much.
To me the holiday season is happiness and fun with family. I personally do not celebrate christmas. I celebrate Hanukkah and NewYears and they mean a lot to me. Hanukkah is a time to celebrate the miracle of light. New years is a time to celebrate the new year were hopefully life will be better that year. The Holidays to me are a time to be with family and fun. For example I made Hanukkah stockings with my brother and mother. It was a fun craft and we did it as a family because my father also made one with us. So holidays are one of my favourite times of the year.
My favourite subjects in school are: P.E, Band, and Coding. This is because all the sports and activities in P.E are fun and let me use up my energy. Band I enjoy because like on the right i play clarinet and enjoy doing so. Coding uses my brain and I am rarely actually challenged in doing something
Some people don't like monday because it is when they need to start the week. But here I will tell what my least favourite day of the week is. I will start with my least favourite to my favourite so I can end it on a happy note.
So my favourite day of the week is probably every 2nd saturday because I have nothing to do
and I am usually bored. My favourite day of the week is Wednesday. This is because I have band which I really enjoy as well as I have this thing called YWCA. For those of you reading this and don't know what it is it's a thing were we get prepared for high-school and we do community service as well as free food and P.E. Those are the reasons and days of the week for me.
