For term 2, my short term goals are
For this winter break I got to have some family time with both sides of the family. It was fun spending time with them since I do not get so see them often. During the break I also got to go to Florida. It was nice warm weather, however not as warm as it was before last time i was there, but at least it was warmer than Vancouver weather. ON New Year’s Eve, I got on a plane to Toronto, and then from Toronto my family and I flew to Orlando. We got to spend New Years Day in Orlando and it was so much fun! I stayed in Florida for 8 days. We stayed at Disney World Resort Hotel, The Swan and Dolphin Hotel. It was very convenient as it was right in between two of the four main theme parks. We could walk to two of the theme parks within 15 minutes. The other two we had to take a bus transportation to get to the other two. I had so much fun at all the four theme parks and I can’t wait to go there again.
Overall, for my progress report card I was happy with it. I noticed that for most of my subjects, I was in consistently highlighted in the 3/4, 5/6 which was a good place for me to be at. For some of my subject I was surprised by the mark I was highlighted in (positive way). I was very proud of all my subject, however I was especially proud of my Performing arts, Math, and PE mark because I was highlight in all the 5/6 band. I also noticed that for my mark I received on my ATL skills, for organization and collaboration I mostly hd the mark of E and I noticed that Reflection is one skill that I can work on in all my subjects. The way how I will improve on my reflection skill is to talk in depth about what I thought about it and put some meaning into it. Overall I am happy with my progress report card and am looking forward to a good year.
“Can’t I fly helicopters AND be an oceanographer who writes songs and cooks?” It’s a big world out there – perhaps even a little too big. ENFPs are fascinated by new ideas, both in terms of developments in fields they are already familiar with, and when new subjects come along. The trick for people with the ENFP personality type is to take advantage of this quality, this wonder with the magnificent breadth and detail in the world, and to use it to propel themselves further and deeper than others are willing or able to go.
Today in Life and Learning we took a survey to see what we were most like and I had ENFP.
My new short term goals for term two is:
My first goal is still adding on from my term 1 goal which was studying better for test *around a week before the test happens* and I also have another short term goal which is reading for 30 minutes every night, because I had that as a short term goal last year, but if did not work out very well, but now without that goal I have been wanting to read for 30 minutes every night. So knowing that I could put that as a goal for my term 2 is something that would help me with my reading skills.
Today in Life and Learning were talking about how to stop; gossiping, judging, negativity, complaining, excuses, exaggerating/lying, dogmatism and to start being; honest, authentic, integrity, and love. We were to write about one of the following negative things we do often and we are going to try and stop doing it or not do it as much. I decided on talking about complaining.
I do some of the negative things above the most I do is complaining. The most time when I complain when someone tries to make me do something that I don’t want to do. I want to shorten the amount on me complaining because most of the time when someone tells me to do something it is a good reason for me to do it and instead I just don’t want to and I get lazy. I know that everything that most people want me to do is for a good reason so just knowing that people want to help me should be a great feeling and I shouldn’t complain as much anymore.
Last Thursday I received by term 1 report card. I was a little bit surprised (in a good way) on some of the marks that I got. I had all 5’s in my subject except for two 4’s in performing arts and english. I was 2 marks away from the honour roll. In order to reach my goal by the end of the year (get on honour roll) I will need to improve on my english and performing arts. Also since I now have DT I have to have a backup fro how to get the honour roll. My other goals in order to get on the honour roll is to try and get a 6 in both PE and Math because than incase I get any 4’s it won’t effect me getting on the honour roll. Overall, the 1st term was quite successful and I am excited for the upcoming term.
For our Life and Learning class today we talked about our study habits on positives and negatives. Some of my positives are:
* take breaks between studying (study for around an hour and then take a break then study for like 45- to an hour and then take a break, and then study for an hour)
*make a schedule for my studying time so I organize how long I am going to study for a subject (such as an hour for science, 30 minutes for math, 15 minutes for english, 30 minutes for socials)
*having healthy snacks
Something I can improve on for studying is spreading out my time for studying for test so I am not cramming it all up in one night.
Over the winter break I went to Maui. It was an amazing experience. I met a girl around the same age as me and Maggie and I went body surfing with her family. Everyday we would go down to the beach or pool and play i the water or just tan on the chairs until around 12:30pm. Then we would go to and have lunch and after we would go back to our hotel room and have some quiet time such as read a book or watch tv. We also went to the Hotel’s spa called Willow Stream Spa which was known as the #1 spa in the whole united states by a magazine. Maggie and I went and got a manicure/pedicure, while our mom got an energy massage, manicure/pedicure, and a facial. Our dad and mom also went to the a couple of days. For New Years Eve we went to a pub and listen to performers perform. Then we watched fireworks that were set off of from our hotel beach. It was an amazing experience and I excited to see what comes up in 2015.
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.
