Death In Space: Eaten By Alien

Hello readers,

In class we have done a small piece of writing called death in space. Our teacher showed us a video with about 15 different ways to die in space. We each had to choose a ways to die in space. The way I chose was…Eaten by alien

Finally bob landed on the moon. The moon was a lot cooler then bob had thought. He saw a strange bump coming out of the ground. Suddenly the mysterious gray bump jumped out and ate him. Bob was never to be seen again.

 

Where I Live

Hello viewers,

This post is all about the small town I live in, Comox. Comox is located in the west of Canada.

 

 

 

 

 

 

First of all it rains A LOT, but that is one of the only downsides to living in  The Town of Comox. In this post I will be listing three reason I love the Comox Valley. One of my favorite places to go in the Comox  Valley is Mt. Washington. Not just the skiing but in the summer I go hiking with my dad we have never stayed overnight but we have done day hikes. Skiing is also really fun I cross country ski but I would like to try downhill skiing

The second place I love is the woods. The forest is right behind our school. Sometimes we go in the forest for gym. Out of school I love biking in the forest with my friends. We also like to put our bikes down and explore the woods. Once we found a ax! We didn’t use it though we put it in a spot where nobody will find it so we can find it again.

The third and final favorite place in Comox is the skatepark. This year me and my friends have gone to the skatepark so many times. I always bring my scooter and go off jumps and ramps. Occasionally we scooter up to Starbucks and have something to drink. Another skatespark I like to go to is the linc. I have only been there for birthday parties but it is very fun. In one room there is a huge bowl. Last time I went there I finely dropped in.

Well those are my three favorite things/places in Comox. Have a wonderful day.

A Harris Burdick Mystery: A Strange Day In July

Stone Skipping,

It was a warm day in July. A perfect day for the beach. Edward and his friend Jim decided to spend the day by the ocean, so they cycled to the beach on there old rusty bikes. The path they were biking on was a old road in the country. They  have never seen a a car on that road ever. Little did they know it was a odd day. As they cycled an the gravel road to the beach Jim’s bike was creaking loudly. Finely they got to the beach. There wasn’t anyone at the beach. It was just them. Edward wanted to see who could skip the stone the furthest (because he is great at skipping stones). Jim who wasn’t so fond of the idea started skipping stones anyways. As Jim whipped his stone Edward saw a stone magically floating towards him. Edward picked up the smooth stone and mumbled “That’s my stone”. They both bolted back to there bikes and sped back to there homes. I guess know one will ever know what happened on that strange day in July.

Christmas Situation

 

Hello readers,

What if Santa Claus only had a beetle, a candy cane, and a surfboard to deliver all of the presents on Christmas? Usually when Santa delivers his presents on Christmas. He has lots of equipment. What if he didn’t have all of that equipment? This is what I think he would do.

It was Christmas eve. Santa was about to leave but then… The south pole elves stole everything except  for the surfboard he uses in Mexico, a leftover candy cane, and a small beetle. He wonders what he can do. He could surf around the world but that would take to long. He would also have to go on land. He didn’t know what to do until… the beetle starts to speak. The beetle said ” I can pull your surfboard across the land ” Santa mumbled to himself how fast can you pull the board? ” ” I am a horned dung beetle the strongest beetle in the world” the beetle said. Santa thought that the candy cane would be a nice snack to eat on the way. So the beetle and Santa surfed away. Once the got into the water the dung beetle said ” ugh how good are you at surfing”. “This is my first time” said Santa. They both saw a huge wake flying at them. SLAM! The wave crashes into them. Santa swims to the surface and sees the dung beetle riding the waves. He yells “Wait For Me!” The dung beetle stops and waits for Santa. The rest of the trip was pretty smooth. When they got back they saw the sleigh sitting there with a little sticky note on it. Santa read the sticky note. The sticky note said ” You should of put us on the nice list  -The south pole elves.” The next year Santa put them on the naughty list again.

Homelessness

Hello readers,

 

I really enjoyed learning about homeless people because I think kids should know more about them. I have learned a lot of stuff I never knew about homeless people. We read a article about a couple of people interviewing 157 homeless people in the Comox valley and I thought it was very interesting. Then they put in a present of the kinds of people that are homeless. Something that really surprised me was that 42 present of people are from indigenous background in the Comox valley. Only 5 present of the population in the Comox valley is indigenous. Another thing that surprised me is only 12 present of people become homeless because of job loss. I would of thought that almost half of homeless people are homeless because they lost there job.

 

After learning more about homelessness it has changed my opinion about homeless people. I never really thought about anybody helping out the homeless people but we help them more then I thought. I used to think that homeless people are bad people and have addictions but after really learning about them they are just like us but just need a bit of support. When I went to Toronto there were lots of homeless people. Whenever I walked past someone living on the streets I would feel nervous and uncomfortable. Now I feel more comfortable because I know they won’t hurt anybody and they are just like us. Homelessness is a big problem everywhere.

Soccer! Worlds Most Popular Sport.

Real Madrid // Barca

Hello Readers,

You probably already know this about me but I love soccer. Last year I did a soccer camp called  Upper Island Riptide. I had lots of fun and learned a lot in that camp. I am on the Comox rep or select team. There are two teams on the rep team. We have lots of games and practices. Our team is in the top tier which  is good but we have to play the hardest teams. We only play teams from  Nanaimo witch is annoying driving there every week.

 This year I am doing a soccer camp called  Rush. Lots of people on my soccer team have done Rush and they recommend it so I’m trying it out. I am not doing Riptide this year though.

I used to like Messi but I don’t like him as much anymore. I like Ronaldo and Neymar. I like Ronaldo just a bit more though. My favourite team is Real Madrid, the team that Ronaldo plays on. I think almost all of the players on Real Madrid are good but the players I like most are Ronaldo, Rodregiez, Navas, Benzima, Ramos, Marselo, and Kroos. Sadly, Rodrigeuz is not on Real Madrid anymore, though. There are plenty of different leagues out there but the main ones are Laliga, Ligue 1, Serie A, Premier league, MLS, and Bundesliga. My favourite team from Laliga is Real Madrid which is my overall favourite team, my favourite team from Ligue 1 is PSG. One of my favourite players is on PSG. My favourite team from Serie A is Juventus because they are the best team in Serie A. my favourite team from the Premier league is Manchester city because I think that they are a really good team but not the best. my favourite team from the MLS is Toronto FC because my sister lives in Toronto. and my favourite team from Bundesliga is Bayren Munich witch is the team Rodrigeuz is on now. Also Bayren Munich is the best team in Bundesliga.

I hope you learned about my soccer and the soccer I like to watch.

Halloween 2

Hello Readers,

It's mine, all mine!!!Creative Commons License Yutaka Seki via Compfight

Last year I made made a post about Halloween. I thought it was a pretty cool post so I’m making a second post about Halloween. Halloween is still my favorite holiday. The reason I love Halloween is because you get free candy. Who doesn’t like free candy? You also get to stay up extra late running house to house. The best part about Halloween is it is tomorrow!

I am going to be a morph-suit  for Halloween. I am going with some of my friends who are also being morph-suits. I am a green morph-suit. We have a whole route planned that is very long so we will get lots of candy. I am hoping we get even more candy than last year. I am also hoping that I get lots of Skittles because they are my favourite candy of all time. 

My plan is to try and get one pillow case or even more this year. Our class is making skits about Halloween safety and I think it is really important to stay safe on Halloween. I hope all of you have a fun and safe Halloween.

What are you being for Halloween?
