Fr Joy’s first visit

Today I got to meet our new Priest and his name is Father Joy.  From what I got to know about him this morning he is a really nice and pleasant person to be around.  He came to Canada in 2017 and he said it was a big change from where he came from and that was India.  He was amazed by how open and nice people are in Canada but he probably doesn’t like the weather that much as to Indias whether because he said were he grew up it got up to 50 degrees in the summertime.  We did a small activity with him today and it was lots of fun and it made me really relaxed.  We had Father Rogers before Father Joy and even though I miss Father Rogers I think Father Joy is really going to make a good fit here in The Holy Name Jesus Parish in Vermilion.

Father Joy’s sister is a Nun back in Kerala, India.  When he was only in grade 5 his sister left to go to become a nun and that really inspired him and he said that he likes helping others and said being a Priest was perfect for him.  He has worked at church in Edmonton St. Theresa and now he gets to work in Vermilion as are leading Priest and show us the way.  were he comes from the province is smaller than Nova Scotia but more people live in that one province where he is from than the whole country of Canada. I am really excited to get to know him and hope he likes it here with us.


Motivation is very important because when you are motivated it means you are determined to do anything to make it work.  On my survey, it said for my first one Support.  I would have to agree because when you are working or playing sports it is good to have the support and having support can really help when you are going through a rough time.

Support is also when you are needing help with something that you just can’t figure out and it really helps when someone is there to give you a hand when needed.  I am motivated to help and support people when needed and I am really motivated on doing that in the future.  Motivation is the key to everything you do because if you are not motivated while doing something you will not try your very best and it will not be as good because when you are motivated you try your very best and it is way better.

On the survey my second one is Independence.  Independence is good for me and everyone in the world.  If you are independent you can do things on your own without getting help ever couple minutes and figure things out for yourself.  when I am working or playing sports I like to be left alone and figure it out for myself because when I leave school everything you do will be needed to figure out on your own and without any help.  Independents mean free and when you are free it feels so good because you get to do whatever you want without getting told what to do by others.

There are some ideas of what motivates me and that is why motivation is the key to whatever you do like being a support to others or even to yourself or being independent and those two things really motivates me.


I enjoy most of the subjects I do but if I was to choose one it would be Math.  I would choose math because I enjoy numbers and really for anything you do when you leave school you will definitely need math.  I am passionate about math because I like to figure out problems and solve them and I am all about facts and that is what math is about facts.  When I get older I want a job the requires me to do math and some of those jobs could be a Financer or a Banker or even a Carpender. There are plenty of jobs the requires math and those jobs would the job for because I don’t just like math I am also pretty swell at it.   On my blueprint survey after answering all the questions, it tells me that Business would be the way to go and I would have to agree with it because I like math and business requires math.  Business can take you a long way in society because if you know how a business runs you can understand what needs to be done and what you can improve so you can get a better profit or just to make more money.  Someday I hope to run my own business and that business to be successful.

There are lots of things that interest me and I will tell you about some of them.  I like to play all kinds of sports and I like to be active.  I don’t like sitting inside playing video games because to me it is just a waste of time.  I am a very realistic person when something is possible and needs to be done do it don’t put it off and say I will do it another day go and get it done.  I like to busy, I don’t like when I have nothing to do.

The 10th Commandment

When you read the two readings one from Mathew and the other from Luke it tells use those people that are poor or that are just making it through that they will get everything when they are in Heaven and that the people that are rich should not be spending all their money on useless things but help the people that don’t have as much and to give back to them.  When you have some food that you just will never eat go give it to a food donation place so the people that don’t eat get to have a meal that day and when you do that you will feel very glad that you did so because at the end of the day you know that you helped people and that is a good deed.  For the School, We hold the fall supper that is a fundraiser for the school and it a really nice event.  We should be helping people more often then we do and get them what they need.


I like to have lots of fun when it is the right time but when it is time to get to work I work.  I am a person that likes to help others when they need help and always willing to give someone a hand when they are stuck.  I will never say no when I am asked to do something and when I do something I do it to the best of my ability as possible.  I am also a very open minded person and am always looking to make new friends.






My Learning Styles

When I am learning, I like to be directed by other people to be shown how to do something. I am I learner who likes to get a visual of what I am about to do because it really helps me learn how to do it right. I am a person that doesn’t remember what I have read unless I have read it about three times to myself. When I am studying I like to use flashcards because it makes me remember what I am reading and what the answer to that reading is. I can’t study when I am listening to music because I get to focus on the song and I just can’t read anything either. That is how I learn and some of my learning strategies.
