On the Sidewalk Bleeding: Who Am I?

My name is Mia Westergaard. I am a unique human being because I am my own person, I love to bake and try new things even if I’m 99% sure it won’t work, I’m not scared to get dirty, and I love helping my dad muck out dirty stalls in the barnyard. I think other people see me as a kind, outgoing girl who likes her opinion to be heard. I want people to see me as a girl who loves to spend time in the barn or outside with animals, or even in the kitchen baking. I want people to be able to look at me and think she seems nice! I love myself because I am a very outgoing person who loves to help and volunteer. I have many talents and strengths like baking and speaking in front of large groups after I graduate from high school I want to become a teacher. I like myself because I have such an upbeat and happy personality but also because I challenge myself.


I love to volunteer and help others in my community whenever I can. I have been a member of the Vermilion 4-H sheep club for 7 years, in those years I have had the marvelous opportunity to grow as a person and participate in many activities. In 4-H we do a big volunteer activity for the year, the common activities that are done are hi-way cleanup and tire recycling but my club found a new activity we set up and take down a community supper. I do more volunteer activities as well since my dad is the vice president of the Ag society I volunteer to set up the fairgrounds before the fair every year and I also help clean up and take down every year. I also am apart of the senior high student council at St.Jeromes and help plan and organize events, having all of these different ways to volunteer keeps me busy but sheep keep me busier.


Growing up on a farm has given me many experiences kids don’t get often, I have had the opportunity to start my own sheep flock. In 2017 my family participated in The All Canadian Classic in Red Deer Alberta I was waiting until we had to show our sheep and was asked if I would want to help show a North country Cheviot for one of our family friends and I said yes and instantly loved the animal. At the end of the show, there was a sale and I bought that ewe and that’s how it began. One month after we were back from the Classic my dad got a call from a guy named Warren Moore who finds people to buy sheep when the previous owners are trying to get out of the sheep business. Warren told my dad about a lady that was moving into a home that wanted her sheep sold and my dad being a spender said he would take them, so $2500 later I have 12 more ewes. In later months we got a ram and started breeding and know I have 20-25 head and more to come in this lambing season and more to come!


During Lambing season we have waffles and pancakes a lot and most of the time made by me. My dad wakes up ever 1-2 hours to check the sheep for 3 and a half months, so me making breakfast every weekend is a big help. I don’t only bake during lambing I bake year round, if you can name it I can bake it, I find baking a great way to relieve stress and escape from the world every now and then and take time to do what I love. I bake new things every time I grab the mixer, just recently I made macarons and those things are tricky to tackle but anything is possible if you believe you can do it. Aside from baking, I cook dinner every now and then, I cook chicken the most using different recipes and other times I cook pizza because who doesn’t like pizza? Cooking is one of the many things I enjoy spending my time doing.


My life is very eventful there is always a new challenge to be completed or goal to reach I really couldn’t ask for a better life. I volunteer my time where it is needed instead of being a lazy couch potato, I do things I love like spending time with animals and baking. If it weren’t for my parents I wouldn’t be who I am today and the opportunities I have gotten I wouldn’t have. My life is the best as it gets in my opinion because I’m happy, healthy, and have many people who love me in my life.


Happy Camper

A happy camper is someone who doesn’t matter how they dress they care more about if they’re happy, and if they put a smile on someone else’s face. They live there life leaving their campsite better than how they found it, which means they can do simple things like pick up a piece of garbage that they didn’t drop or even donating food or clothing.

In my opinion teens, today suffer from many different things, one I can think of is self-consciousness, which may also cause the thought of self-harm with is a horrible thing to even think about. There nothing wrong with teens today it just that everyone is different so they have there own way of dealing with things and their bodies may also be built differently from there friends or people they see on television. I also believe that we are better and brighter than our parents because technology has advanced and there have been many new discoveries.

Women had the right to vote for the first time on January 28, 1916, and the first women in Canada that were allowed to vote and hold a political position were from Manitoba.

Connecting the dots to means looking at the groups of people that are together, this can help show what kind of fairness there is in the world and even in the school. I could listen to light up my life 0-1 times to be 100% honest with you. I have many adults in my life that believe in me more then I believe in myself, my parents and grandparents are most likely the main ones and possibly the only ones. I believe in my friends and family a ton even when they think they can do something.

The pledge of the happy camper is like a vow or promise saying that you will put smiles on other peoples faces and that you will leave your campsite better than how you found is and doing good even where there’s lots of it. I will know I am a happy camper if I make someone smile or I smile and have a good attitude because I’m spreading happiness. I will work to do things that need to be done even if it’s not my job.





Set A Multiple “signs” of intelligence in the Bible

Set A:

Luke 10:38-42

What does Mary do?

Mary was sitting at the Lord’s feet listening to what he was saying, while her sister is working.

This passage is about how if you are worried and distracted the other person chose the better part to be calm and the Lord will not take anything away or force anyone to do something.

Linguistic – word smart, Intrapersonal – self smart


John 11:5-6

What is Jesus’s attitude toward Mary, Martha, and Lazarus?

Jesus’s attitude towards them was caring even though he didn’t come when Lazarus was ill.

The passage talked about how Jesus never came when Lazarus was sick, he just stayed were he was even though he knew he was ill.

Interpersonal – people smart


John 11:20-22

What is Martha’s faith based on? Logic? A Convincing argument? Her relationship with Jesus.

Martha’s faith was based on her belief and trust that Jesus could have heeled her brother if he came. This passage is about how If Jesus had come when Lazarus was sick he never would have died.

Commandments of the Church

The Commandments of the Church are a set of rules that you must obey if you are a true follower and believer in the Lord. These rules state that you must always participate in Holy days and other events of the Lord whenever they are happening, such as :

  • Receiving the Eucharist at least once during the Easter season.
  • Confessing your sins at least once a year.  
  • Helping fill the needs of the church.
  • Attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of obligation.
  • Observing the days of fasting and abstinence(from meat, but not fish) established by the church.

Now a days we have 5 Commandments of the Church but in the earlier days(1400’s) there was many more, some are similar to the ones we have know and some are different, such as:

  • Observing certain feasts.
  • Keeping the prescribed fasts.
  • Attending Mass on Sundays and Holy days.
  • Confessing once a year.
  • Receive Holy Communion during paschal time.
  • Pay tithes.
  • Abstain from any act upon which an interdict has been placed for excommunication.
  • Refrain from any act interdicted under the pain of excommunication.
  • Avoid association with the excommunicated.
  • Not to attend Mass or other religious functions celebrated by a priest living in open concubinage.

Although there were lots of the Commandments of the Church in the 1400’s, there were fewer as the years went by. In the 1500’s there was only four, these commandments were:

  • To fast at certain prescribed times.
  • Pay a tithe.
  • Go to confession at least once a year.
  • Receive Holy Communion at Easter.

The Holy Days of Obligation

  • All Sundays of the Year
  • January first- The Feast of Mary
  • 40 Days After Easter Sunday- Ascension Thursday
  • August 15-Assumption of Mary
  • November 1- All Saints Day
  • December 8-The Feast of the Immaculate Conception
  • December 25- Christmas

The two Holy Days of Obligation that do not fall on a Sunday are:

  • Christmas on December 25 and The Solemnity of the Mother of God on January 1.


My Primary Motivation is Support and my Secondary Motivation in Recognition.  Support is helping others so helping them make positive decisions and being with then through difficult times. Recognition is being recognized for a good thing you have done to help others. Motivation can be even motivating yourself by setting a goal for you to accomplish throw out a certain period of time or even just life in general, for example my goal for volleyball season is to get all my serves over during a tournament and even in practice, if I work my hardest and take time to perform to the best of my ability I will have a greater chance of accomplishing this task.  Motivation is a key part in a person’s life, if your not motivated you will not go anywhere with you life, you will probably end up living in your parents basement watching T.V all day eating chips and pop which is opposite of what a motivated person would do. If you were motivated you would be getting a degree in some type of subject to be able to complete what you want to do for the rest of your life and eating healthy and only occasionally sneaking a treat. You can move mountains if you stay motivated! Recognition the reward you receive when you help others and say motivated, like in middle level you get recognized for your great efforts and participation in class work and you willingness to help others for example this is one of the thing that recognition is. Being able to exceed expectations of those around you is a way to get recognized by your peers. Recognition is also known as a form of acknowledgement of something like if your a professional piano player you will most likely get acknowledged and if you are a student that uses post it notes to stay organized and jot notes down during class discussions to remember things, you would probably get recognized for that by your teacher.


My top subject area is Physical Education. I love all subjects in school which has given me the goal to become some kind of teacher and teaching Physical Education would fall in that category. My second an third subject areas are Technical Trades and Languages. Technical trades in my perspective would be electrical work, carpentry, plumbing, hairstylist, welding, gas fitting, baker, and millwright. Languages in my perspective was be walking through the hallway at school listening to all the students speaking filipino, french and other varieties of languages. It would also be visiting my grandparents and listing to them and they have a conversation with my dad in danish (they only do that when they are wanting to tell secrets). Physical Education is being able to work effectively and efficiently during different physical activities, it may also be eating healthier or going on walks to help you have a healthy body and mind. Professions in physical education would be a school gym teacher, swimming instructor, ref or coach for big name sports teams, school sports coach and nutritionists.


I am the Sensei which means i am drawn towards knowledge, both learning and shearing. Sensei’s are patient, friendly, and generous, but often prefer to work independently as they have a strong focus on learning and understanding the tasks that come for them to accomplish to the best of their ability. They are known to end up completing studies in advanced academic degrees and specializing in areas they are drawn towards. Sensei’s are also very advanced with knowledge and are good at teaching it to or helping others with it. There are 2 main interest traits Investigating and Social. Artistic, Realistic, Enterprising, and Conventional are other traits but do not have as much of an effect as the main two. I am 54% Investigative which means i like working with theories, concepts, information and ideas. Curiosity, reasoning, logic, research, analisis and science are typically activities performed by the investigative interest. Social occupations revolve around people like assisting, teaching, healing, and other services. I am 50% Social and i can relate to this one because ever since i was a young child i’ve wanted to be a teacher of pediatric doctor.

I am 40% Artistic, 27% realistic, 23% enterprising, and 21% conventional. Being artistic requires the skill of self-expression, creativity and usually future work that can be done without a clear set of rules. This one requires an environment where flexibility, variety and Challenge are excepted. Being realistic is completing hands on activities usually involving jobs with animals, plants, materials, tools and machines. These jobs usually don’t involve a lot of paperwork. Being in a  enterprising occupation usually involves the world of business. They regularly provide starting and driving new projects. Conventional occupations focus on information and tool to analyze, organized and understand certain information. This may include activities such as creating plans, processes, and routines.
