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?

About Me 2

Comox Valley, British Columbia,Canada

Hello Readers,

This Post will be all about me.

You probably already know this from looking at the title of my blog but anyways my name is James. I live in a small place called the Comox Valley. I go to a school called Brooklyn Elementary. I’m in Mrs. Smith’s class for the second year in a row but I am very happy to be in her class again because we get to blog again! I am 12 years old and my class is a 6 / 7 split ( I’m in grade 7). I have one older sister and no brothers.

I love to play sports, all sports with a couple exceptions. My two favourite sports are easily soccer, and basketball. I would rather soccer but basketball is also really fun too. I started playing soccer since I was six years old so I’ve been playing for six years. I am still playing to this day. I won’t talk too much about soccer because that will be one of my posts. I would not consider this a sport but I love scootering. Even though I only started recently I am loving scootering. I go to my local skatepark a lot.

I love food as well. Some of my favourites are pancakes, pizza, tacos, and obviously cake. My favourite cake is probably vanilla. Yes I am a boring guy but vanilla is so good. I like to put lots of syrup on my pancakes. I love to go to a pizza place called Ryder’s pizza. My favourite pizza from Ryder’s is called the Sasquatch. It’s basically a meat lovers pizza with jalapeños on it and I take the jalapeños off the pizza because I don’t like spicy food. Which brings me to my next subject, foods I hate. I hate Shrimp so much, it feels like you’re biting into a chewy piece of rubber. I don’t really like any type of seafood except seaweed. I like to watch these YouTubers called Good Mythical Morning. They eat and drink the craziest stuff that I would never think of eating like blood, pee, Haggis which is just lots of sheep insides wrapped in their stomach, and pine needles.

I hope you learn a lot about me. What’s you favourite food? What do you do for fun?

Have a amazing day
James

Soccer!

Hi Everyone,

FútbolCreative Commons License Ian D. Keating via Compfight

You probably know I love soccer. You might learn a bit about soccer during this post.

First of all I am on the Comox valley U12 rep soccer team. My favourite position is left midfield. I used to play left defence but I like to play left midfield now. My number is 37 on my rep team. My cleats are Messi indoor and Magista outdoor. This year I joined a soccer program called Upper Island Riptide. I will be playing soccer four days a week including Riptide three days a week and rep one day a week!

Time to talk about professional soccer. My favourite soccer player is Messi. He plays for a team called Barcelona FC. Barcelona is my favourite soccer team. Barcelona plays a 4-3-3 lineup. Forward:  LF- Neymar, CF- Suarez, RF- Messi. Midfield: LM- Iniesta, CM- Busquets, RM-Rakitic. Defence: LD- Digne, CD- Pique, CD- Mascherano, RD- Vidal, GK- Bravo.

My favourite international team is Argentina. Messi is from Argentina, and Argentina came second in the last World Cup. In four World Cups, Germany has beaten Argentina in the finals. Argentina always seems to come second!

I hope you learned a little bit about soccer.

Who is your favourite soccer player?

Christmas!

Hello Readers

I hope all of you had an amazing Christmas. Today I will talk about mine. To start off I  went up to Mt. Washington to go tubing with my sister and her friend Cade. The first couple of runs we all went together. The hill was a lot steeper than I thought. On my first run down the hill by myself, I sped down super fast! That night we hosted a party with all the adults around our neighbourhood. I sat in the living room and watched Home Alone 1, 2, and 3 instead of talking to all the adults. Sadly we did not have the fondue this year because it was very snowy in Langley. My Grandparents couldn’t drive in the snow. We had Christmas in Coquitlam at my Grandma’s. For Christmas I got a Sphereo Ollie and a huge Nerf gun. The next day we went to my nana and pa’s house for Christmas dinner. There were fourteen people for dinner. The next couple of days we did a lot of visiting. In Vancouver it snowed a lot so I played in the snow. Driving home from my uncle’s we saw a car drifting across the freeway. Right when he got straightened out a semi truck zoomed pass. At the end of the holidays my sister flew back to Toronto and she got upgraded to first class!

Newspapers

Hello readers

I want to tell you something else about me. I deliver newspapers around my neighbourhood. I have two routes: the Record, and the Echo. The Echo papers are a lot smaller than the Record. I deliver the Record every Tuesday and Thursday, and I deliver the Echo every Friday. One thing that is very annoying is I deliver the Record on the same days as my soccer practices. I still have to do them every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. I deliver newspapers to 92 houses for both routes. But it is worth it because I earn about one hundred dollars every month. I even have to deliver papers when it is like a blizzard. Each paper I deliver it is worth 7 cents. I sometimes get extra when there are special fliers or catalogues. At Christmas time a lot of people give me extra money or tips. The tips I get each year are about the same as one month of delivering the Record and Echo. With my paper money I am saving up for a new trampoline because I am joining a trampoline class in January.

Places I Want to Go

Hello readers,

If you read my “About Me” post you would know I love geography! This post is about a winter wonderland. Can you guess what it is? It’s Finland and yes it is a winter wonderland.

Facts

Finland is the third most sparcely populated country after Iceland and Norway with only 17 people per square kilometer. Finland is the country with the most lakes with a whopping 187, 888 lakes and also 179 888 islands.

They have a funny contest call the wife carrying world championship where husbands carry their wives. The course is 250m and goes through water and over obstacles. They also hold other weird sports such as mosquito hunting.

Why I Want to go There

In the winter there is loads of snow and I love snow. The activities you can do in the snow are snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding. The sleds are pulled by husky dogs or reindeer. The Northern Lights are visible 200 nights per year. You can even do an overnight trip to see the Northern Lights. On those trips you can even have a sauna! The Finnish people love to have saunas. Finland just seems like a great place to go in the winter!

Landscape

The highest point is Halti which is actually just a border marker on the Norway border. The elevation is 1,324 m. The lowest point is the Baltic Sea that is 0 m. Finland has the third cleanest air after Canada and Iceland. Finland also has a lot of forests. The capital of Finland is Helsinki and the country has 5,532,994 people.

My Family Christmas Traditions

Hello Viewers

Zurich Rebecca Bollwitt via Compfight

Does your family have Christmas traditions? Well my family has a lot. One of the major ones is having Christmas at my Grandma’s house in Coquitlam because that is were most of our family lives. I really like that tradition because I get to see a lot of my family. Another one is the fondue with my Nana and Pa. A fondue is when you get to cook your own food in oil or broth. My favourite is the cheese dip. My Nana and I always have to try one shrimp each because we hate them. We also have rules. The rules are you can’t have two forks in the same pot at once. You have to use the right forks for the right pots, and put the right foods in the right pots. If you break a rule you get a fon-don’t and if you get three fon-dont’s you don’t get any more food, but we never end up following that rule. My sister usually announces the rules but this year she is in Toronto for her dance so I have to announce the rules this year. My favourite part is the chocolate pot. Once were all done we bring out a chocolate pot. We dip banana, cake, strawberries, raspberries, and orange slices. There are also sprinkles to dip the food in. My favourite is the strawberries. The last tradition is my sister and I get to open one present on Christmas Eve. It is always pyjamas so we can sleep in them on Christmas Eve. I like that tradition because I don’t have pyjamas that fit me around Christmas. What are your family traditions?
