Today was very exciting for the year 8 students, because we were again visited by the wonderful Andrew Patterson who is a radio live speaker. He talked to us about college and what we should expect, do, have in college. Habits, he also played a video of 7 top habits that we should have when we finally reach college. They were Be proactive, Begin with the end in mind, Put first things first, Think win-win, Synergize, Seek first to understand to be understood and sharpen the sow.
Mr.Patterson also played some video's of how our brains could grow more. One thing I obviously knew was that if you struggle that means mine and your brain would grow more, then not learning the things that you already know.

I was really thrilled because it was the day that me and my friend Mahana were able to go to the movies and also go shopping around the mall. We did have permission from our families and we both were very excited. I myself wished that night time would already finish and that day time would arrive because I couldn’t wait anymore! I wondered how she was feeling?
As soon as I was ready, me and my aunty went to go pick her up. We were a little late when reached her house and it seemed like she was waiting for us outside of her front door. Our car horn beeped outside of her house ‘Bep bep’ and she ran outside fast like a cheetah. She didn’t want to get wet from the rain for some sort of reason.
Mahana hopped inside the car and we went to the bank. While my aunt was driving she decide to introduce herself and I was already embarrassed. Finally we reached the bank and my aunt went inside to get some money out for me. Yay! “I have over 40 dollars and a free ticket to the movies. How much money do you have,” I ask mahana? “40 dollars,” she replied.
We finally got to the movie theaters and Mahana didn’t have anymore money for our popcorn, munchies and drinks so since I had a free ticket to the movies and I had much more money left over, I said to her that I would buy the popcorn, munchies and drinks. She loved the idea and she let me do it. 18 dollars and 60 cents for popcorn and drinks felt and sounded expensive to me, but you know what I had so much money that I could buy two of each.
We watched ‘Pan’ the movie and we ate and took photo’s in the theatre. “Thanks,” she said to me. I replied “It’s my pleasure.” We exit the movies and went shopping for some clothes, I bought me and Mahana matching shirts so whenever we go out again to the mall we can wear those t shirts.

People wear shoes to protect their feet from dreadful diseases and also sharp little objects. Some of the diseases that can affect your feet are called Fungus, Pseudomonas, and many more. Some of the sharp little objects that can also affect your feet would be known as Glass, Rocks, Nails, and again many more.
Sometimes when the ground is ‘Hot’ or ‘Cold’, we would obviously need to wear our shoes. ‘Why,’ because if the ground was cold and you were in your bare feet, you would need to pop on warm shoes and also if you are walking with bare feet on a hot sizzling type of ground you would need to pop on some flip flops.
When you are making, building, or creating something you should always remember to wear a type of shoe. ‘Again why,’ because you never know when you're holding something sharp and you dropped it by accident, it could go throw your feet or someone else’s. Not alone bad things happen to you but it does happen to other innocent people.
I hope you have received and got some tips off me for you to learn from and also to go over with others. Please leave a comment and I hope you were amazed by some of my tips to ‘Why do people wear shoes.’ Here is a LINK for you to also go threw.

Today me and my cousin Ata, thought of making delicious homemade biscuits, so we did. I was excited and thrilled to finally make them! The very first thing we did was looked up on google ‘How to make biscuits’, we found for what we were looking for. Then we got our
equipment and ingredients out to start, I was sweating like I never sweated before.
After that, we melted some real butter and popped it in a bowl with sugar and mixed it all together. While we were mixing, our favourite song came on and we started to sing. “Is it time to put the egg and vanilla essence in?” I asked and she replied with “Yeah!” So we both added the egg and vanilla essence into the bowl with the sugar and melted butter. It smelt so good!
We mixed and mixed, and then when that was done we finally added plain flour. The texture started to form into a more dough-like mixture which is perfect for biscuits. It was time to take the dough mixture and cut it out with the cookie cutters, that was my favourite part of all. “Time to put the biscuits in the oven.” Ata said. We waited for 5-10 minutes and ‘POW’ we took the biscuits out and it turned out so good. I was so proud of myself and Ata. I enjoyed baking!
Please leave a comment and I hope you were hooked into my writing. Here is a link to making biscuits, so that you could have a try as well. Again I hope you were hooked in!

The weekend is so boring, annoying, and it is so hot, please just make it stop. There is nothing to do, instead of eating, sleeping, or watching television (if you have a television). It is just like I am trapped in a tiny box! I am burning like the sun, I am hungry for getting out of the house, and I am wishing like I haven’t wished before.
Everyone in my family tells me to go to sleep if I am bored, but I don’t listen. I ask and ask, “can I go somewhere to be away from this house for just a little break (SERIOUSLY)!” They don’t listen as well. “Why are you so lazy?” I asked my family. No answer. It is like they want me to feel like this. “Fine I will just go by myself if you all are not listening to me,” I said walking off so angrily.
When night came, I decided to snuck out for a muck around with my friends. We all didn’t tell our parents and we were all very excited, not even feeling a little guilty. We went in one of my friends mum car, she didn’t care but I was worried, I began to feel a little guilty now. “Come on lexcie,” said Jama. So I went with them and we went all over Sylvia Park, it was magnificent, we brought ourselves new clothes, shoes, and even went to go watch a new movie that just came out.
“That was the best,”said Jama! “I know but do you think were gonna get in trouble,” I replied. “No don't worry, let's all just go home and forget this ever happen, ok guys,”said jama. So we did forget about it and all went home to make sure that we wouldn’t get caught by our parents. When I got home no one was in their beds, I was wondering where they were but I couldn’t think hard.
Click! There goes the light. “Mum, Dad, I was just getting me some water,” I said so scared and frightened. “You're lying, Jama’s parents just called us and said that you and your friends were out in Sylvia Park,” mum said. I kept quiet. “Get in your room and stay in there, we will discuss this in the morning,”yelled dad. I ran in my room and started to cry, it is all my fault. My tears were falling down like rough rain! “Get up lexcie,” said my dad. We walked in our living room and talked about the problem. When mum and dad understood my problem they were sorry, and when I told them about going out, I was sorry. We all moved on from it and I was very happy to get it out of the way.
Now I have learned my lesson, and that lesson is that I should always talk about my problems with my family, and I should never go behind their backs. I shall never lie and keep that in mind. If something is bugging you and you want to talk about it with someone else, tell them, I am sure that they would understand and listen.

You should always make sure that you're keeping warm if it is winter. One way to keeping you warm is by wearing clothes that does protect you from the cold, and that does make you feel good. You should also eat and drink soups and healthy pies which are warm for your bodys. Be warned at times, because sometimes you never that the cold is coming.
Also, another tip is by washing your hands after you have finish from the toilet or when you have touched something gross. Washing you hands is another way to prevent yourself from getting sick. Some of the ways we can wash our hands is to, stop germs from taking over and making sure that we scrub our hands extra hard. We should always remember to wash our hands because, if we touch something that is disgusting and gross, it does lead to germs.
When I sense a cold is brewing, I immediately go into attack mode and start consuming 1000 mg of vitamin C every couple hours along with other immune-boosting supplements. I drink a lot of water and make sure I get a good night’s rest. In 95 percent of these cases, the flu or cold symptoms go away within 24 hours. I also go into attack mode if I am around a sick person for an extended period of time.
