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.
