For this years halloween, I dressed up as Agnes from Despicable Me. Before Halloween cam my friends and I all got together and said that we should be characters form the movie Despicable Me. Today was very exciting as we had Paige as Gru, Grace as Margo (oldest daughter), Claire as Edith (second daughter), me as Agnes (youngest daughter), and Mackenzie, Maggie, Katarina and Caroline as the minions. In surprise we found out that Ms. Roy was Lucy and that Ethan was a unicorn that looked exactly like the unicorn stuffy Agnes carried around with her a lot of the time. It was a crazy, fun day.
Last week on Wednesday October 22 2014, I got to attend We Day along with many other student at Mulgrave. There was 20,000 people to there and it made me realize that we can change and make a differences with all of us helping. We Day was an unforgettable experience. I learned so much through global causes, helping others, education, dreams, and much more. There were so many amazing performers and speakers. Some of my favourite speakers was Selena Gomez, Macklemore and Spencer West. They talked about what we can do better and what they can do better and what they can do. I enjoyed everything about We Day, however my favourite was when Jennifer Lopez came and performed for the grande finale to close up We Day Vancouver. I had an exciting time and can’t wait for next year!
This will be the second time I will be in concert choir. We practice Wednesdays – at lunch (8&9) Fridays -after school (7,8&9). We are going to be performing in 2 weeks with two songs and also be performing at the remembrance day assembly.
Near the beginning of the school year, the grade 8’s went on a hiking trip to Garibaldi. I was in the intermediate so we went to Checkamus Lake and hiked up to meadow area near the top. The hike was a good level for me. It wasn’t too steep, but also it wasn’t just all flat ground. Cooking outside and making our own food was lots of fun, since I don’t usually cook at home. Also sleeping with my friends and setting up the tents was so much fun as I was with most of my friends. It was a great time and I really enjoyed it.
This year I have joined the grade 8 bantam girls volleyball team along with many of my friends. We have been practicing 3x a week. Tuesday – 7:00am – 8:45am, Wednesday – 3:30pm – 5:00pm, and Friday – 2:30pm – 3:30pm.
