Spirit Week

Hey blog world! This week is Spirit Week at my school! Every day this week we’ve had different special events going on. Monday was twin day. We had to pick a friend to be our twin and dress the same! Me and my friend S were twins. We both wore purple plaid shirts, jeans and sneakers! That day there was also hot chocolate being sold in the lobby but I didn’t get any. The next day was Neon day! Not many boys wore neon. It was mostly the girls. My friend M.P really went to the extreme with her neon! She looked like someone from an 80’s workout video! I wore my lime green Bulldog Gym T Shirt. That day during lunch there was face painting! I got a rainbow on my cheekRainbow Face Paint! I thought it looked awesome! Yesterday was the best day! It was winter carnival day! There were all kinds of activities planned out at school and outside of school. You could go to lazer tag and Axtion (it’s a warehouse full of really cool stuff like bumper cars, inflatable slides, bounce houses and all kinds of other stuff), half day bowling, bowling and rock climbing or skiing. I was gonna do the bowling and rock climbing but not enough people signed up so that was cancelled. I did half day bowling instead. I also signed up to participate in a video game tournament. S did too. When we got up to the library where the video game tournament was supposed to take place we found out that you were supposed to bring in your own system and games! That sucked! We went to one of the upstairs classrooms and played board games instead. We played pictionary, tri-bond, jenga and sorry (which took us an hour!) After lunch we went upstairs to the challenging needs classroom to borrow Clue and Battleship but when we got there we saw them playing “Guitar Hero” and decided to join in on that. They only had the drums but that was ok. I tried “One Way Or Another” by Blondie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFerLNdpwO4 on easy and didn’t even make it to the end of the song! Later I tried “The Joker” by the Steve Miller Band http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmVusVh4TRQ on easy and was able to get through the whole thing!  When we went bowling I had a lot of fun! While we were there there was a HUGE screen set up playing music video’s. Some of which I hadn’t seen since I was little! “Sk8er Boi” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIy3n2b7V9k by Avril Lavigne for example I hadn’t seen since I was 5! It made me feel kinda old LOL! I did excellent at bowling! I got 116 points the first game, 109 points the 2nd game, 92 points the 3rd game and 135 points the 4th. Unfortunately we didn’t get to finish the 4th game. We had to go back to school. Oh well! Today was switch day. I had to pick a friend to switch with and I’d dress like her, she’d dress like me. I dressed as S! All I could think of to do was wear a sweater because she always wears one. S ditched the sweater today and just wore a t shirt because I never wear sweaters. Today at lunch there was a free improv show! It was really funny. They did great!  I’m not really sure what’s in store for us tomorrow. It’s healthy commotion day. I have no clue what we’re doing. All that I know is that I’ve gotta wear pink because it’s also team colors day and all the grade 10 girls have to wear pink. Was this week spirit week at your school? What did you do?

Comedy Of Errors

Hey blog world! I decided to use this post to write about today’s daily post at www.dailypost.wordpress.com! It’s called “Comedy of Errors”. I’m supposed to write about a time when everything went wrong. It happened when I was I think maybe 8 or 9. I used to go to a summer camp called “Camp Whatchamacallit” and if you wanted you had the opportuinty to order your lunch there. One of the options was pizza. I decided to order that for my lunch. It tasted yummy! When my parents came to pick me up I found a pizza sitting in the backseat of the car with me! They ordered a pizza from Dragon 88 (a Chinese restaurant close to where we live) for our supper. I couldn’t believe I was going to have pizza again! I decided to only have 1 piece since I had pizza for my dinner at camp. Later on that night I went to Sobey’s for my cooking class where we got to eat what we make. As my luck would have it that night we made pizza! I was beginning to get sick of it after having it so much that day! Again I only had 1 slice. That night I got to see my 3 pizzas again because having all that pizza made me sick! That wasn’t a very good day at all! Was there ever a time when everything went wrong for you? Tell me in the comments!

Songs I’d Like To Learn On Piano

Hey blog world! I’m a pianist! There are lots of songs I’d like to learn how to play on the piano! Here are some of them.

“Daydream Believer” by the Monkees http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU615FaODCg: This song makes me happy! I’d love to learn it on piano.

“American Pie” by Don McClean http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAsV5-Hv-7U: This is one of my favorite songs! I also like Weird Al Yankovic’s parody of it called “The Saga Begins” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEcjgJSqSRU. When I play piano I like to sing the song I’m playing so chances are if I ever do learn this song I’m probably gonna sing “The Saga Begins” by Weird Al instead of “American Pie” LOL!

“Fancy” by Reba McCentire http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zplc4Ienkws: I have the sheet music for this song and am currently trying to learn it. It’s gonna take a lot of practice but hopefully someday I’ll be able to play it!

“Walk Through This World With Me” by George Jones http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6aqtPY-314: This is such a pretty slow song! If I ever learn this I’d like to play it for my Grandparents because they both really like George Jones!

“Lady In Red” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt2YIpZWBqA: This is my favorite Chris De Burgh song! I really want to learn to play this someday!

“The Impossible” by Joe Nichols http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ce-pUKsJM6w: This song means a lot to me! It’s my Grandma’s special song! When I learn it I’m definately gonna play it for her!

“I Don’t Want To Live On The Moon” from “Sesame Street” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQttrezXRBI: This is my favorite “Sesame Street” song and it’s so beautiful! I think it’d sound even more beautiful on a piano!

“Tango Maureen” from “Rent” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0QfCIQgD94: I saw a “Rent” piano book at a music store really close to where I live. Once I save up enough money I really want to buy it and learn this song!

“Part Of Me” by Katy Perry http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuwfgXD8qV8: This song is awesome! I think it’d be really cool to play this on the piano!

What song do you want to learn on piano (or any other instrument?) Tell me in the comments!

“Arthur” Books

Hey blog world! I eat my recess and lunch in the challenging needs classroom every day. Sometimes when I’m finished I read to my friend D.F. I let her pick the book. She always goes for an “Arthur” story! I hadn’t read an “Arthur” book in years and am glad I get to read them to her! I will never stop loving “Arthur”! He’s just too awesome! She loves “Arthurs Christmas” (she calls it “Artur Christmas”) Arthur's Christmas and “Arthur’s Tooth” Arthur's Tooth. Those are both great books but my favorite “Arthur” book is “Arthur’s First Sleepover” Arthur's First Sleepover. My favorite part of this book is when Arthur, Buster and the Brain hear scary noises coming from outside their tent so they start to run. Instead of running out of the tent they run while still inside the tent and because they’re in the tent and can’t see where they’re going they run into a tree LOL! I also really like “Arthur’s Chicken Pox” Arthur's Chicken Pox. My favorite part of that one is when D.W uses pink marker to give herself fake chicken pox! I’m not sure who D.F’s favorite character is but mine is definately D.W! She’s really really funny! I like baby Kate too. I think she’s cute! I wonder if Marc Brown will ever write some new “Arthur” books for me and D.F to read together? I think that even though it focusses on George he should turn my favorite episode of the “Arthur” TV show called “When Carl Met George” (that episode was about Autism) into a book! What’s your favorite “Arthur” book? Tell me in the comments!

Interview #2

Hey blog world! I was on NTV Evening Newshour a while ago. Unfortunately there is no video availlable online (I googled it and checked the website and found nothing) so I cannot share my interview with you but I can tell you that it went really well! I talked about what Special Olympics meant to me and Dad talked about what it meant to him and the family! Unfortunately they didn’t air the part where I told Jodi (the girl that did my interview) that I sang! I really thought they would! Oh well! I was really really proud of me and Dad and hope to someday be interviewed on the news again! Do you like being on camera or do you prefer watching others? Tell me in the comments!
