Last official day

I'm sad that this was the last day of classes and everything. I'm going to miss everyone so much, and I don't know if I'm ever going to see them again. I am so happy that I got this chance, and I am so glad that I got to be here for three years in a row. I've met so many people this year, and I'm going to cherish them forever. We are all together, and we will always be apart of this thing we call GEAR UP. 

Well, I'll post my really sad one tomorrow

Last Wednesday

Well, today was the last day for education, photography, and art of acting. I a, so sad that it's almost time to leave. And Kate, our group leader, left today, because she's going to go to a teachers interview for her teaching job ipshes going to start this year. I'm happy for you Kate. Have fun with the sixth graders. I'll miss you. 

I also had Chinese today again, and it was fun. We made these flowers, and I gave mine to Kate, so she had some thing to remember me by. She said she's going to hang it up in her classroom. I'm having tons of fun, and I'm so sad that it's almost over. I'm going to miss everyone that I've come to get to know this year. I've made so many cool friends, and I'm going to miss them all. 

Well, until later,

PS: I only have one ore assignment to do now, and it's due tomorrow night.

Last tuesday

Today was a good day. Chinese is fun, and I have almost all of my assignments done. It's actually been easier this year, than any other year. It's been more fun too, which I think it's because I've been out of my shell more. Well, I don't have a lot to say today, so night guys.

Until later,

Chinese class

I don't have a lot to say about today, but I have made some more friends, and I'm talking to more people. I'm sad that this is our last week, but I'm so excited that I am ahead on all of my assignments, I learned about Morehead State University today, and it seems like a good option for upcoming college freshman. I am so glad I chose Chinese. It's a lot different from Japanese, and it is so cool. We learned a lot, and then we made flowers and got our Chinese names. I'll show you. 

Until later,

PS: I made the flower on the far left, Erica made the one in the middle, and Josh made the one on the far left. Erica and Josh didn't want theirs...

Dance Party

Well, we had a dance party last night, and it lasted from 7-10. But, it lasted a little longer, and it was so much fun. There were so many songs, and it wasn't just new songs, there were older songs, and there were just all sorts of songs, and it was so much fun to dance with all my friends. This was actually the first time that everyone came together as one this year. This year has been different, and people have more distant from each other this year. I don't know exactly why, but the dance party brought us all together. It was so much fun, and I'm glad we all came together. 

Well, we also had our Olympics today, it was so much fun. My team ended up undefeated in disc golf. It was cool, and then were ended up undefeated in tic tac toe, and in wiffle ball. It was so much fun, and I can't wait to see the final score board. I hope we win. We won last week, but they're waiting until after today to make the final judgement for prizes. It was fun.

Well, until later,

Malibu Jack's

This place was amazing. There was laser tag, go carts, arcade, and a realistic simulator. I did all of it. I did the simulator twice, because it was so cool. It was like a small roller coaster, and you're sitting still, but you do whatever your 'character' does. We did the horror carnival. It was actually pretty realistic. And with the amazing 4D/5D, it actually looked like the monsters were reaching out towards you. It was creepy, but it didn't scare me. All the people were screaming the first time I went in there, ex let me. I laughed at the end, because it was amazingly real, but it didn't scare me. The go carts were awesome too. It was a small race track, and it was very cool. There was also mini golf course, but I didn't do that. I really don't like gold that much. The arcade was cool. There were a few games that were cool. I played air hockey with a few people, but I mostly just watched others play the games. It was cooler to watch. I also did the laser tag, and it was so much fun. My team won, and it was awesome. I'll post pictures of our score board tomorrow. 

Well, until tomorrow.

PS: Tomorrow is the dance party!! I'm so excited!!




Chinese dumplings

So, we got to choose activities for today, and I chose to cook Chinese dumplings. We did it by hand, and it was so much fun to make them. I didn't like them too much though. But, it was a lot of fun to make them, and to watch them being cooked. It was definitely something that I will never forget. Especially with all the pictures that I took for you guys. It was a lot of fun, and everyone else had fun too. I enjoyed it a lot. And I can't wait until Malibu jacks tonight, and then the dance party tomorrow night. I'm so excited. 

Well, until later,

Library time

I get that a lot of people don't have computers or a way of getting their homework done. I u dears tame that. I even enjoy going for a little while. Library time, for me, is both annoying and enjoyable. I like going, because I can ask for help from several people. Last night was very helpful, because I got help from presentation u people about my cover letter and resume. It was really good to hear someone else's opinions on what I can improve on. Now, the only thing I don't like about library time, is that it's mandatory. I feel that the ones that have everything done shouldn't have to go. But I understand why they have everyone go. They want us to talk with our color group and find out what's going on with everyone. They want us to do team building activities and stuff to get closer to one another. I enjoy that part of being at the library. I love to be around people, but it's hard for me to concentrate on my homework if I'm not alone. I still think library time is s good idea, and I'm glad that we have it almost every night, so students can get their work done.

Until later,

Diagnosis Detectives

My elective for the past week was very interesting. In the class, we looked at swabs under the microscope. I looked at my spit, and it didn't look that nice. But, they said it looked normal, which is good. Then, we looked for and counted the different types of white blood cells in the human body. It was very cool. I wish I could've gotten pictures of that. And then yesterday, sadly, was our last day in that class. We took a tour of different parts of the medical side of campus, and then we looked the different blood types. Then, we did an activity where we had to determine what blood type our sample was by dropping A antibodies and B antibodies in synthetic blood we used. My sample was type AB blood. It was cool. And at the end of class, after everyone got cleaned up and ready to go, they gave us all lab coats to take home with us. Which is pretty cool. 

Until later,

Poetry

Okay, so in our education (EDU) class, we are doing something different. Instead of writing an essay and doing a video, we are writing poetry to support our 'this I believe' statement. My statement is this: I believe that we are the voice for animals. I can't wait until I finish my poem, because I I can't wait to show you guys what I've accomplished. I am so glad that I got to come back this year. And I am so happy that I got the chance to come back for a third year. I have met so many nice people, and I have made a few fiends already.

Well, until later,

The museum

We went to this amazing museum today, and it was so much fun. We walked around and we saw so many photographs and paintings. There is so much that you can learn about the artist by viewing their artwork. There are so many different things that you can notice when looking at art. The longer you look at some of the art, the more details you will notice. I like looking at the colorful artwork, and noticing the small details that not everyone sees. I took some pictures for you guys, so enjoy!

Until later,

July 19th

So, today was a good day, and I got all my assignments caught up. And then, today I created a cover letter and a resume. But, it's only a draft. They will grade it, and then we will finish up the editing part, and turn in the final copy. Friday, we are going to Malibu jacks, and Saturday is our dance party. I am so so so so happy that we get another dance party. Last night, the baseball game was fun. Hanging out with everyone has brought me closer and closer to some of them. I have quite a few people that I talk to now on a daily basis. And again, there are more cheerleaders. The first bunch left, and now there's more. And they're leaving on Thursday. We are goi to a museum tomorrow for photography, and I'm so excited about it. 

Well, until tomorrow
