Because you left me alone, and you didn't care about me or anyone anymore. You use to be nice, loving, sweet, kind, and funny. you loved me, but that all changed in 6th grade. you looked at me in 6th grade and you didn't smile like you did in 5th grade. Months passed and still no word from you. Then one day I spoke.
"Why did you leave me?" and these were the last words you ever said to me.
"I don't know" all in 6th grade.
- Things are going to change in your life, but you need to take a step forward and take a change to be prepared at life.
As well does the soaring kite.
The sunlight is finally dieing.
As the plane is also lying.
The yellow and orange sunlight starting to get eatin by the hungry horizon lining.
The lights finally start to get dim when they flicker out.
Tae kwon do
Over the past four years I have learned a lot of things from my experience in Tae Kwon Do. It has helped me learn right from wrong. It has also helped my focus and this has helped me raise and keep my grades up in school to where I have no B’s or C’s on my report card. It has made a huge improvement on my behavior at home. Since I have been doing Tae Kwon Do, my sister and I don’t get in as many fights as we used to. I am very proud of my decision to join Tae Kwon Do.
I started Tae Kwon Do in the AIM HIGH program. There I learned the basics, including things like self control, goal setting, indomitable spirit and some other things. These are the things I think about when something happens and I want to get angry. When I remember those things it will usually calm me down and not lead me to bad behavior. That is also how I have been successful in keeping my grades up and paying attention more in school to what the teacher is saying to me and the rest of the class. Based on these basic things, I have been able to change my actions at home and at friends’ houses. They now usually want or have asked me to come over again, so I can do some other things there as well.
During those four years I have really enjoyed the instructors because they are really nice and they always know what moves are the right ones for me. The instructors that I have had in the past include Master Farrell, Mr. Beyer, Mr. Shepek, Master Miller, and some of the most recent instructors are Mr. Bishop and Mr. Minor. There are still more instructors that I have not mentioned but the ones that I mentioned are the first that came to my mind.
During my second or third year, my younger cousin came to watch me at Tae Kwon Do and decided to start going to Tae Kwon Do in Sioux City, Iowa. One day when I went to watch him do his Tae Kwon Do stuff and while I was sitting there watching, I noticed that they had some of the same things that Farrell‘s had but with different names. For example, instead of a 360 roundhouse kick, they called it a tornado roundhouse kick. I thought that was kind of funny. I think that he will really enjoy Tae Kwon Do just like I do.
Also in the AIM HIGH program I learned about healthy food choices and how they can really affect your everyday life. Because of that, my dad and I have limited pop to only once a month, besides on our birthday month and then we are allowed to have two pops and only two pops. Now since my dad and I have been doing that I can guarantee that we are a lot healthier than what we used to be when we could have as many pops as we wanted.
The last thing I wanted to mention is what I learned AIM HIGH stands for. The A for Attitude, the I for In, and the M for Motion, the H for Having, I for Integrity, the G for Goals, the H for Humility. All together that would be Attitude In Motion, Having Integrity, Goals and Humility.
Farrell’s has made some really positive changes, not just in my life, but in a lot of other people’s lives as well. Thank you Farrells for what you have done for me and many others as well. Once again, thank you!
For my empathy project, I went to the Lutheran Church of Hope and packaged meals for the people in Haiti. What I learned from the experience is that what they are getting compared to what we get at our houses, was amazing.
The project started when we arrived and got signed in. Next we had to watch a video on what to do and how to do it. We were assigned to a table and worked with another family. We all had fun packaging meals. Everything that went into the meals was dry. To package the meals, we had to put some dried vegetables; some protein, which I think was soy; vitamin powder; and, some rice in a bag. Then we had to weigh it to a certain weight. After that we had to seal it tight on a heat strip. The sealed bag was put on these squares and then after we had two bags on each square we could start putting the bags into the box. The last things were to tape the box shut with a tape gun and then put it with a bunch of other completed boxes. I think all together Lutheran Church of Hope packaged 2.5 million meals. But our group packaged 3024 meals in all.
We did this because many people lost their homes, and family members because of the horrifying earthquake. They need food. What I thought was amazing is what we get compared to what they get in Haiti. Put yourself in their shoes, how would you feel if you had to just add water to all the stuff that we put into the meals? So think about what you get, stuff like hamburgers, ice cream, steaks, and pork chops.
I still had a lot of fun packaging meals, and we also got to meet some new people while doing it to that was a good thing.
It all started on an ordinary school day. Thomas lived four houses down the right and across the street from a rick man named Benjamin Franklin. Thomas lived in a middle class house and has the of a professor at PUFTFI which stood for Philadelphia University For The Future Inventors.Thomas really hated that there was only candles to light up his house.
One day during a lesson his favorite student Thomas E. gave him an idea of somehow catching the brightness of lightning. But all he came up with was that lightning is attracted to medal.Finally at around midnight that night he went home.The next morning the idea hit him "What if i flew a kite with a medal frame and a medal wire during a lightning storm and at the end put a key and catch the power in a glass bottle" said Thomas very excited.
He got to work very early that morning and when he got there he wrote down his idea on a piece of parchment and stuffed it in his pocket. The school day went by very slowly and then it was finally time to go. On his way home he tripped and sliced his knee open so he quickly ran home and cleaned t up. He was done bandaging his knee to find that his blue prints for his project was gone. "It must of fallen out when I tripped. He searched all evening but no luck.
Over at the Franklins he was scanning the piecing of parchment he fund in the street. Lucky for Ben there was a huge lightning storm tat night but Thomas still had the idea in his head. On his way to the tallest hill in town to find Benjamin Franklin soaking wet flying a kite with a key. Horror struck Thomas sat there and watched Mr.Franklin catch a crackling stream of power into a glass bottle. The next day there was a huge celebration for Ben and he was twice more rich than he already was. After a while Thomas grew old and died but one weird thing was that Ben too his job and someone told him that Thomas .E and Ben spent an awful lot of time together.

The goalie is one of the most important player because they block the ball from getting into the goal. The goalie is the only person who can touch the ball with there hands, but they can only pick it up if the ball is inside the goalie box. If they touched the ball outside of the box, it would be a handball and would be a free kick for the other team.
Now lets talk about the full-backs. They try to take the ball away from the attacking offense and feed the ball up to their own offense. There are three positions, right, left, and center. The right and left cover the sides of the field and the center defends the center of the field and can help the sides if they are in trouble.
The sweeper gets the ball from the defense and passes it up to the striker or the mid-fielders.
The strikers job it to push up as far as the other teams defense will let him without going off-sides. When the Striker goes up as far as they can, he passes it to one of the mid-fielders. Or if the defense are back far enough he can go up farther and take a shot on the goal.
Now I'll talk about plays. A throw-in is when a player kicks the ball out-of-bounds, and the other team gets to throw the ball in down the side-lines to one of their team-mates. A goal kick is when a player on the other team kicks the ball out on the end lines. It is usually the goalie who kicks it in, but another defender can kick it if they want to. A corner kick is when the other team kicks it out on the sides close to the end lines.
Lastly I'm going to talk about off-sides. This happens when you dribble the ball past the last defender. To avoid this, all you have to do is pass it to one of your team-mates who is behind the last defender.
Baseball is a favorite sport of America, China, Japan, The Diminican Republic, and many more countries! It can't be because of not enough teams! Also, it can't be enough fans. Millions of Americans watch baseball, and I don't know about other countries, but I'm sure the people from the countries I listed watch a lot. If I'm wrong, the many other sports in the Olympics should be taken out too! It also can't be from not enough compitition. All of those countries I listed are fierce rivals! All of them have a great chance at winning. So why are they taking out baseball?
Unique ways to have fun!

We play the Dowling MAC. They are a new team this year. Some of the kids from a team called the Westside Stars are on this team, and the rest I don't know who.
I know I'm not pitching because I pitched in the first game. It's OK. I just want to work on my hitting before the tournament this weekend. I am ready physically and mentally. I wonder what the outcome will be.
P.S. I wrote this Tuesday night before my game.
I always get hit and thrown,
Nobody cares about me.
I remember the day i first got hit,
It was good until that day,
the day they hit me over the fence and forgot.
The home run was great,
until they forgot me,
Nobody cares about me.
