It was the first day back at school. All the kids were running in with smiles on there faces ready to start the year on a good note. There was a group of boys that had been friends since kindergarten and now we’re headed into Grade 8. There were 4 boys in the friend group and their names were Jake, Reid, John, and Ryan. The boys were excited to be back because then they can see each other every day. The boys were standing by there lockers and the principle made an enactment saying that there was a new grade 8 teacher so report to the grade 8 room and meet your new teacher. So the boys headed to meet there new teacher.
The boys entered the room and looked and they were surprised. The new teacher was 6.5 and he had to of weight 280 pounds, Jake asked the new teacher what happened to Mr.Soil, the new teacher looked down at the boys and said he’s in a better place now, the room went dark and the boys looked at each other and Reid said better place what does that mean, John agreed yea what does that mean and then Jake responded with guys know need to worry I sure he just moved. The bell rang and the new teacher Mr. Erikison said students take your seats and we can go around the room and share a little something about ourselves. He looked around the room and said Jake what is something about you. Jake said hey guys sports and things that need solving, Mr.Erikson grew a grin and said thank you.
It was the period 8 and the boys were planning on hanging out at Ryan’s house after school to play some video games and work on there homework. Jake asked Miss Caron if he could use the washroom and she said, of course, Jake you may go. has Jake was to the washroom he heard a voice down the old hallway where no one was allowed to go and he saw Mr. Erikson on the phone and he said I am getting to know these kids and then we can move on the next step, Jake said quietly next step I knew there was something fishy going on and he said I must tell the others as he started backing up and he ran into a pole and it made a huge noise then Jake got down so Mr.Erikson and the teacher said who is there and then he hung up snd said we will talk when I get home.
Jake had arrived back to class and the boys asked him where he had been and he said guys I heard Mr.Erikson on the phone and I think he has something to do with Mr.soils disappearance. Hey after school we should go to Ryan’s then when it gets Dark we should go to Mr.Erikson’s house and see what he is up to, the friends thought about it and agreed. They would go to Ryan’s after school and then go see what the new teacher was doing. School had ended and the boys had been at Ryan’s for a bit just staring at the clock waiting till it had become dark. Finally, the time had come to go see what he was up to the boys snuck out of the house and ran threw the woods to get across town faster. The boys were walking and they heard a creaky noise they stoped they seen a man in black walking towards them the boys ran up the hill and hid behind a rock, the man stopped as he thought someone was watching him and then he went into a bunker that no one else could find but him and he went down there, the boys waited for a few minutes waiting to make sure that no one else was going to show up, no one showed up so the boys made their way down there but there was a lock so Reid picked the lock and the boys went down making sure he wouldn’t here them. As the boys approached the middle of the bunker they saw Mr.Soil tide up to a chair and Mr.Erikson was pointing a gun at him and the boys ran toward it a bang the gun had gone off the boys had tackled Mr. Erikson and got Mr. Soil untied from the chair and the called the police and Mr.Erikson the police have been looking for him for years and you young fellows caught him weel done and the boys and Mr.Soil would join the Grade 8 class the next day.
Mr. Erikson would go to jail for the rest of his life and the boys would go back to having the nice teacher there not the criminal one and the boys wouldn’t have to worry about anything anymore as they go back to the way things used to be. Mr. Erikson was a murder and never seen again, that was the mysteries on the first day of school.
The movie that interests me that follows the hero journey guideline is Hacksaw Ridge. Hacksaw Ridge is a movie about war and the Americans are fighting the Japanese on Hacksaw ridge. When the war had begun all of Desmond Doss’s friends signed up, he was a Catholic boy that didn’t believe in killing but did believe in saving lives and that is what he wanted to do to serve for the country of United Staes.
Desmond Doss was a very young man when he decided to join the army, his dad was a man who served and Desmond seen how messed up he was when he came home. Desmond didn’t want to kill, well actually he refused to kill nor would he hold a gun. Desmond was a very religious man and told the army that he couldn’t work on is sabbath day. A sabbath is Sunday when your not supposed to work just hang low and bond with the family and pray.
I couldn’t say I would want to do what Desmond Doss did, he fought in the war with no gun. Now you might be saying well that is just not right and if he doesn’t want to kill then why did he sign up. Desmond signed up in the Military as a medic which means he would be saving people not killing. As a medic in the army, you have to go out on the battlefield while they are shooting at you and go save the man that is serving with you because as a medic it is your job to save them. Now if you ask me I think that shows great bravery and I don’t think I could ever do what he did.
Desmond was a very committed man. When he promised he didn’t need a gun he didn’t lie. When the Americans are bombing the place because the Japanese have started to push then off Hacksaw ridge they would get down and the ships would bomb the place so the Japanese would back off. When the Americans were bombing the place Desmond stayed up there and was helping the soldiers that were hurt well the Japanese were up there and he was the only healthy American soldier. He saved over 75 soldiers without a gun and when he was saving them the Japanese spotted him and they started shooting at him and he just kept on. He also threw himself in front of a bomb and saved many of the soldiers and they ended up winning the war after what he did.
Desmond was a great human being and was very much respected by almost everyone because of what he did and how he did it. Desmond after the war went home after he threw himself in front of a bomb and they ended up winning the war, when he got home they took good care of him and he went on to live a good life and he passed away on March 23,2006 and he will be missed very much and is an amazing role model and hero.
Dream House, if someone were to ask me what my dream house would look like I would probably say 4 story house with a bathroom on every floor with walk-in closets in everyone’s room and everyone has a 75-inch tv and an Xbox or ps4. I would want a fireplace so around the holidays we can start a fire and sit around it eating Christmas cookies and drinking hor chocolate. I would want a hockey rink outdoors and a ball diamond in my yard. One other thing is I would want a huge yard so we could do all the activities in my yard. In my house, I would want a movie theatre so we can watch a movie and just have a good time. If I had to choose a dream house these would be some of the activities that I would make sure are in my house so we can enjoy every minute of or life, also I would put a zip line in my yard and make an elevator and slide that takes you downstairs. Everyone will have a king-size bed so they never grow out of it they just wore it out and we have to get a new one. This is what my dream house would look like and every kid gets to choose the vehicle they drive. Doesn’t this just sound like the best place to live well I think so and I hope you do to?
If I were given the opportunity to choose any car in the world I would choose a Chevy Silverado 1500, 2015. I would add things to the truck like subs and rims, tint, I would want my truck to have everything I want inside it because it is my dream car. This truck would allow me to be able to so so many things like pull trailers and other things like that. I would want 2 colors back and white. Now you might be saying why white but white is surprisingly easy to keep clean and white looks good for you your going to do things for your truck like add rims and tint. I would have to say the same about black because it would look nice and well I would like my dream car to look nice.
I think having a black or white truck would be important too, the reason it would be important is that those are some of my favorite colors and red and blue just aren’t my color for a truck. I would want it to be able to seat 5 people because If your friends or family need a ride you have enough room for them. I would also want to have a box cover so when it is raining or snowing out my hockey gear or baseball gear won’t be soaking wet. There is one advantage to having a single cab and that is usually a longer box that you could put a box cover and that would be fine but not for the seating room.
A Chevy Silverado 1500 is a good truck for multiple things for pulling cattle or a camper behind the truck is important because your gonna want to go camping with friends and family. Having a truck during winter would also be important to me because if the roads are bad the truck is higher off the ground so easier visual and weighs for on the road so you will not be sliding all over the place.
If I were to have a Chevy Silverado and would want black or chrome rims because those two rims look the best when you customize your truck. I would want subs and loud with lots of the base because I love music that is loud and has a base on it because it just makes the song so much better. I would also maybe stock the truck because stock trucks are sweet and I would straight pipe my truck to make it louder and sound better, I would want it to be a gas truck because diesel is so much more expensive and aren’t;t has good as gas trucks because gas trucks van hold more and don’t burn as much fuel.
If I had to pick I dream truck this would be the one I would choose, ripping around with the boys and having everything I need to make it perfect so I can drive it as long as possible, I would want to keep the truck when it’s time for a new one because It would bring memories because I would have put so much afford into making it perfect.
Rosiness or Gloomy grey? The choice is yours. Do you want to enjoy your life to the fullest or live your life in the shadows with regret? I personally find rosiness much more suitable to my life. I am a human being who would rather spend their life enjoying every moment and treasure the special moments, rather than living in the shadows and being upset and regretting the things I never did. You might be asking what I ‘m meaning when I say rosiness, some examples would be, I would like to be happy, have less stress, Enjoy your days to the fullest, how fortunate I am that my health is good and I have a roof over my head. When someone says rosiness I think of a colorful life that is full of adventure rather then Gloomy grey which is a dark path and living in the shadows. I want to look at the bright sight rather than dwelling over the worst and possible things that could have happened.
Wouldn’t you rather choose to look on the bright side? Well, I would. Living in sorrow and always thinking the worst isn’t good for you or your health. If you’re to live in a Gloomy Dark world you are going to have lots of stress and frustrations and other factors that will not be good for you. Rosiness brings joy that will benefit you through your lifetime. You will not be stressing over some issues which will be good for your mental health because some can’t take a lot of pressure and that is ok. I am not saying that there won’t be frustration or stress if you decide to look on the bright side but you will move on and won’t dwell over the things that are going to affect you. Living in the dark will not get you anywhere in life. Life is a battle that we have to strive for and speak up if we want to do something about it. Rosiness will allow people to voice their concerns and their beliefs, which is a good thing because that means there are people that really care about what is going on.
Rosiness can mean not to think about what is going to happen in the future. If you think about where you’re going to be 10 years from now you will worry because you don’t know what the big man has in store for you and you need to take life as it comes and live it to it’s fullest. Try to just focus on what is happening in that moment and be thankful that you have chosen a path that allows you to be happy and less stressed, which will bring you more peace.
One thing that is hard for us to do is to take a moment to think about all the things we have, and all the things we could have if we live life to the fullest. One thing I would like to say is if your not getting something you want to be fortunate that you still have food, water and a roof over your head because some don’t and they can’t look on the bright side because they think that they had nothing more but if you put your best afford I promise it will pay off.
One thing I have got from this is to start looking on the bright side rather then just thinking the worst, because if you are just going to think the worst well let me tell you life is going to be hard and stressful because your not looking at all the possible things that could happen. I hope you have decided which way you want your life to be and I hope you all choose the rosiness because it will lead to a better tomorrow, so I ask again which one Rosiness or Gloomy grey the decision is all yours.
Identifying a good read takes more than just reading it and saying you liked it. It needs to grab your intention and you should have an interest in the topic you’re reading. You should be able to give facts on why it is good reading and what drew you into liking it. My topic that drew my attention was The man who was 42 years of age and wanted to play in the NBA as a rookie. He would train his butt off in the gym just so he could compete with the younger guys all striving for the same goal. The 42-year-old man is 6’8 and weighs 335 pounds. Know you don’t have to know basketball but that is a huge man for any sport. The 42-year-old man would make a great 4 or 5 because he is so big. playing in the NBA as a rookie isn’t key because most guys have been playing since they were 18 or 19 years old and they are ending their career at an average of 40 years old so those guys have been playing for 20 years or so and he is just starting his career in his 40 that would be a hard thing because you would have to work triple amount and put in more time in the Gym. 42 would be hard because by then you would already have a family and it would be a huge change if he were just to leave for long periods at a time because he has been there the kid’s whole life. Being 42 and just starting your career would be hard on your body because of most Allstars in the NBA their bodies start to slow down between the ages of 35-40 and most have retired and 40 has I told you earlier. Being 42 would be hard but certainly not impossible, yes you would need to work way harder than anyone on the team just to be able to keep up with them but certainly not impossible. I would have to say I would support this man who wants to pursue his dream of playing in the NBA has a rookie at 42. In my opinion that would take a lot because you would have people criticizing you and judging but you can’t let that get to you, you just would have to play your game and pull yourself back up because most will not support this decision but it is a freedom and you have the choice to live the life you want to live. That is my opinion on this topic of the 42-year-old man who wants to pursue his dream and play in the NBA I am for it and I hope you’re too.
Time travel would be an incredible invention. Time travel would help us to go back and fix the mistakes of our history in this world. Time travel would help and teach us social studies and you might be saying well how does time travel have anything to do with social, but it does because when we learn about what these people did back then we could time travel back and see what it was like and the conditions they had to survive in. I would use time travel to go one vacation whenever because it would be free and you go be there within 10 seconds. The fortunate thing about the usage of time travel would be when your late and you need to get somewhere quick with outputting anyone else in danger, you could us time travel.
If time travel was an invention I think the first thing I would do would be to go back and fix all the mistakes of people spreading disease and make sure that doesn’t happen because it is not right to hurt people that have not done anything to you like for example when Hitler decided to gas all the jews I would go back and change is mind and raise him to be a better person because violence is not the solution to solving issue that just makes it worst.
Let’s say when it gets really cold in Canda I would time travel to someplace warm laying on a beach or laying in the sun somewhere in the united states like for example Hawaii. Hawaii I would time travel to the lot’s because you could go surfing and if you were to get hurt you could time travel back to before you got hurt, and you wouldn’t make the same mistake. I would travel to lots of cool places don’t you think that would be fun?
If I had the power to make time travel a real thing I would. I would make it so we could go back so like if you were sick you could go back to when you were younger and live the same or different life so you could not regret things you never did because you can go back and do those things, you would never have to lose the people you love. We could eve go back to the birth of Christ and witness the wonder of greatness and see the great things you did for us and how much Jesus himself loved us.
If I could make time travel I would go back to history, go on vacations, and stop people from dying those are my thoughts on what I would do first because those are all good and fun things to do like going on vacation whenever you want, don’t you just wish time travel was really well let me tell you I do and you should too.
If I could Teleportate right this moment I would like to be in Phoenix Arizona. The reason I would want to be there right this moment is that the weather is much better, and we get 7-10 days of not being in school. The second place I would like to be in Hawaii. I would like to be in Hawaii because of the weather and sitting on the beach and exploring new things like surfing, or scuba diving. The third-place I would like to be is in Disneyland with my family. Ever 5 years or so our whole family takes a trip to Disneyland and we have the times of our lives there.
Phoenix Arizona is such a nice area, it is clean and all ages enjoy being there. When I go to Arizona I stay at my grandparent’s house, it is about 10 minutes away from Florence and they live in Anthem. Anthem is a town in Arizona and it is a very large town with lots of activities to do. The last time we went to Arizona we went to an NBA game and it was awesome the music was blaring and the fans are crazy its awesome, near our grandparents house there is a community pool and they have hoops in the pool so you can play basketball it is so much fun there and the weather is like in the ’30s so it is just a blast and sucks when we have to come home.
The second place I would want to be is in Hawaii. I have never been to Hawaii and I don’t know which island I would want to go to, throughout my life I would like to travel to all the islands. Being in Hawaii would be so much fun because they have activities that we cannot do here in Canada, we can go exploring the island and see animals and different plants that we can not see in Canada. Another fun thing would to be able to go surfing you would feel free just riding that wave. The weather would be so nice just laying on the beach.
The third-place I would like to go to is Disneyland because the weather is nice and the rides there is so much fun and there are like 1000 rides there and they never get old. Disneyland is a great place to spend time with your family and my family we go every 5 years or so and we go for like 10 days and it is so much fun. We go to the beach one day and the Disneyland experience is awesome and so magical.
All of these places would be so much fun to go to and when I get older I think I would want to travel the world and get see all of the cool things that this world has and I would love to go to all of these places with my family and have the times of our lives.
The question is what are the Three Songs you don’t get tired of listening to. My three songs are by the same group of guys, they are an older band but they made some great music, lots of people would agree that people love their music just as much as when it came out. My three songs are kickstarted my heart, Same old situation, and Girls, Girls, Girls. These songs are not bad songs, and what I mean by that is they are clean songs that you and your family can listen to together.
Kickstarted my heart was recorded in 1988-89 and was released in 89. Kickstarted my hart was a popular hit back then, and now. Most people find Motley Crue very energetic music like it can get you going. It could be listened to before a hockey game or any sport because lots of kids like it and it can be a pump-up song.
The other song I really enjoy listening to is called Same old Situation. This was also a song by Motley Crue and was a big it but not for the same reasons has some of there other songs. This song is more of a releasing song and it is a great song to sing on the road with your family or with a team you are apart of. This song was recorded in 89 and the Genre of this song is Glam metal.
One of my favorite songs made by Motley Crue is Girls, Girls, Girls. This song was recorded in 1987 which was before some of the other songs a enjoy. The genre of this great song is rock, this song is also more of an upbeat song that people could enjoy singing with there family’s and friends this song was also a big hit like any of there songs because they were a very famous group of guys and could really play good.
These are the three songs that I don’t get tired of listening to because they are older and I enjoy the older kinda rock, Motley Crue is a great band and they were awesome but I’m not saying I agree with there life choices because I don’t but they sure knew how to make some noise. I am pretty sure most would agree that they were some of the best if not the best in their era.
All of these poems have a great message to tell but my top 2 would be Annabel Lee and In Flanders Fields. The reason those two are my favorite is that they are telling sacrifice messages and I am so glad for the soldiers that gave up their lives for us.
