My favourite Subject is Gym. I like Gym because it’s different from other classes. In most classes, you are sitting and learning about things that can sometimes be excessive and boring to learn about. But in Gym, you are free to run around and get exercise and play different games every day. The gym is a fantastic way to get all of the energy bundled up inside you after sitting around for a couple periods. And it is always something that I look forward to.

With Obesity rates rising dangerously these days it is exceedingly important for our generation to be healthy and in shape. If you are not a healthy or in shape person you are threatening your overall health greatly. I think it’s so important that we have Gym class and we are all making sure we get our daily dose of exercise. We are teaching people of our millennial generation the importance of being a physically fit and healthy individual. And with that being said not only is Gym my favourite subject but I view it as one of the most important ones.

I believe that I could find a career in Kinesiology by having Gym as something that I enjoy. Biology is another thing I enjoy which goes hand in hand with Kinesiology. My sister’s boyfriend has a major in Kinesiology and he is a very health cautious person and I admire people who are concerned about their health. Although it not being my dream job it is still something I would find joy in doing in the near future.


Dream Job

My dream job is a makeup artist. I want to go to Cinema makeup school in Hollywood and do SFX, runway makeup, and makeup for celebrities. And I would do a part time job at an animal shelter or be a waitress. If I worked hard enough I would like to sometime do a collaboration with a makeup brand like Tarte or Dior. If this doesnt work out I would like to teach social or LA or be a social worker. 

The meaning behind the word Community

 Vermilion,  a snug town located in the depths of Alberta and in the large Country of Canada. At some first glances Vermilion is like a lot of different small towns spread across the world. Its boring and not much happens here. But Vermilion is more than just a little place. There are 4,084 people living in the rural area since 2016. When i think of my hometown I think of a community where everyone knows each other and where everyone is always supportive of one another. Our community is always coming together and doing things like the Vermilion fair and Canada day. We all work our hardest to keep Vermilion a clean and nice looking town, from hanging baskets of flowers using the best baskets from amishbaskets.com, and also cleaning up garbage in ditches everyone lends a hand.


But for me what defines a community is the people you are close to, a family community or a friend community or even a sport community. So that would be soccer, soccer is a sport that i enjoy because I love to play but also because I love everyone I play with and coming together twice a week to do our drills and run the field and laugh and joke around. A community is a basis of all the people that make you feel wanted and like you are a part of something.


That being said that makes Family a huge part of community as well. Family is what you come home to and wake up with. They are who you spend your  whole life with and without your Family you wouldn’t  be here. You would not have a home or anybody without Family. They are who you grow up with and they are who will always be there for you no matter what. And even if you don’t live with Family or they aren’t all together they are still all there and they are still who you came from and are the entity to you and always will be.


So these are all the things that feel like a community to me and what define the word community for me. My town, my friends, my sports, and my Family.

Hungry for change

I learned how much sugar is in milk and its actually a lot

I learned that the same things that are in blueberry muffins are also in engine cleaner

And how some foods are as addictive as cocaine

I was surprised by the muffin one because i thought they were made the way you would make homemade ones and you would know everything that’s in what you’re buying.
