My Soccer Tournament

          This coming weekend I have a huge soccer tournament.  I am very excited and can';t wait for it because I get to play soccer and hang out with my team.
          This tournament twill be our last games this year for my travel team.  This also might be our last year going to this tournament.  The tournament in the Okemo tournament in Vermont.  I love this tournament because when we aren't playing our soccer games I am hanging out with my team at mountain.  Playing the soccer games this year is going to be really fun because I am going to be able to play on the field and in goal.
          When we aren't paying our soccer games we are all at the mountain having fun.  At the mountain there are several different activities to do.  There is a mountain roller coaster, a cliff jump that you jump onto an airbag, a poo, a rock wall, and more.  Every year my team always goes to the pool to swim and then we go to some of the fun games/rides.  There is also a waffle cabin that has amazing waffles that I look forward to every year.
          I can't wait to go to the tournament because I want to spent a lot f time with my team.  I want to play well in the tournament and win but we are playing teams that are a lot older than us.  Even though they are older we can still beat them by outworking them.  My team is very good and we are getting better.
          I can't wait for this weekend to spend time with my team and play soccer.

The School Year In Review

        My school year is almost over.  I have had an amazing year as a seventh grader.  I never thought it would go that fast.
        In the beginning of the year I was very happy about being in Hiawatha and happy to see my teachers for the year.  I heard that my teachers were very good and that everyone loved them.  I found out myself that was true.  I loved all my teachers this year and learned so much from them.  It felt like just yesterday that I was meeting my teachers for the first time.
        I have accomplished so much this year.  I have made a lot of new friends and had an amazing year in sports for the school.  I met many people in my sports and many new people on my Hiawatha team.  I hope my friendships that I have now will stay with me forever.  I will always remember my year as a seventh grade.  I have made so many memories.
        I have learned so much this year and don't want it to end.  I will miss all my teachers.  Although I will visit them all next year.  I hope that my new teachers will be as nice and helpful as my teachers this year.  Having learned so much I feel like I am already in eighth grade.
        I hope to see everyone that I saw this year next year as I embark on the journey of my last year in the middle school.

Everything Comes To An End

          This Friday was my last track meet of the season.  I have had an amazing first year of track and can't wait for next year already.
This was at a track meet that I got a personal
record of 4 feet 10 inches in the high jump
         At the beginning of the season it was really confusing because it was my first year doing track so I was confused on what to do and where to go.  Although I figured it out pretty quick.  I had an amazing sister in this track season.  A sister is someone who you a re partnered with to give them a gift each meet.  I was able to get an amazing sister, Ally.  She helped me through the season and encouraged me to jump higher and further.  I also met an amazing friend and hope to stay friends with her for forever.  Her name is Matlynn.  She also helped me through the season.
         Track is unlike some other sports because not everyone's track season s over at the same time.  I was honored to keep going onto State Qualifier Meet.  It was such an amazing experience because it is only my first year of track and I had finished 8th against high school students.  It is such an amazing experience because I will accomplish so much more in my future.  Before the State Qualifier Meet I had gone to several meets before it that I finished it a very good place.
         I loved the track season because I met Matlynn and her and I went far into the season.  I have jumped a lot of personal records and broke two high school records this season.  I also got my varsity letter and my first pin to go on it.  I hope to accomplish more next year ad go even further.  I had an amazing first year of track and it was an amazing experience to compete against high school students and place well.
        I have had lots of fun on the track team and so many memories were made.  I can't wait till next years season to have even more fun!!!

A Day In My Life

          My days are usually very busy and very eventful.  I have very busy weekends and weekdays.  Here is a day in the life of me.
          Lets say that it is Tuesday night and I getting in bed.  The next morning I wake up at about 6:30 to shower.  In the morning I have to pack my stuff for track and school.  Wednesdays are usually days that I have a track meet so I have to pack more stuff than I usually pack.  Once I get put of the shower it is about 6:45.  By the time that I a awake and dressed for the day it is about 7 and I am ready to go down stairs.
          When I go down stairs I normally make my breakfast and turn the TV on.  While I am making my breakfast I am packing my track bag and school bag for the day.  Once I finish breakfast it's about 7:30 and I head upstairs to brush my teeth and get anything that I forgot upstairs.  I get back downstairs and it is about ten minutes to 8 and I do anything that I need to like fill my water bottle or put my binders in my backpack.  I am ready for my mom to drive me to school.
          Once I get to school I have a normal day but if I have a track meet I need to leave school early.  On Wednesday's I have track meets so I have to leave school early.  Sometimes a bus comes to pick us up at the middle school but sometimes we need a ride to the high school to take a bus.  When I get to the track meet I set my bags down and start to warm up and get my marks for my events.  I have a very fun track meet and compete very well.  I then take the bus back to the high school and my parents will pick me up there.  It is about 8:30 by the time I get home and I have to do my homework.
I love having busy days but it is nice to have a day where I don't have anything.

Track And Field So Far

          Track and field has been so fun this season.  I have meet many people and have tried many new events.  I can't wait to try new events and learn more.
          This season of track has been amazing.  I have learned so much and already beat many of my own personal records.  I started off the season with long jump, high jump, triple jump, and sprinting but this season I have now started hurdling and I've been doing longer distances such at the 400 meter and the 800 meter.  My coach is very nice and wants me to try lots of event.  When I started hurdling he said that I was good and now I am doing more and more hurdling.  I mainly just do the 100 meter hurdles.  At almost every meet I have done the maximum of four events.  I have been doing the the long jump, high jump, triple jump, and a running event and now it will mostly be hurdles.
          Track is such a great experience.  I have learned so much and met many new people that share my same interests in track.  I have also beat many of my personal records in the beginning of the season.  At every signal meet I have beat one of my own personal records.  It is such a great feeling when I beat one of my personal record and be able to look back at my coaches smiling and them smiling back.  I hope to beat a lot more records n my future and have that great feeling again.
          Tomorrow is going to be an awesome and long day for me.  Tomorrow is a very important track meet for our team.  Not many people are going to this meet and I got the honor to go.  I a nervous about this meet because this meet is only varsity people and it will be my first meet doing the pentathlon.  A pentathlon is when you do five event.  The events are 100 meter hurdles, shot put, long jump, high jump, and the 800 meter.  I am very excited and can't wait to try some new events.  I am very nervous for the 800 meter run because it is one one of the hardest runs because it is difficult to pace yourself.  It is half a mile and is almost a sprint but also a jog.  I am very nervous but more excited for my meet tomorrow.
          I love track so much and never want it to end.  I still have a lot left of the track season but it will go by so fast.  I can't wait till next year to learn more and try more events in the track and field season.

Superhero Me

          If I were a superhero I would be the best superhero in the world.  I would have many powers and achieve lots.  My name would be "The Flying Titanic"... AKA (Also Known As) "The Best Super Hero in The World, With All The Super Powers in The World" (AKA, TBSHTW,WATSPTW).  And yes, that is my superhero name.  I will have all the powers in the world.  I would have X-Ray vision, laser vision, super speed, super strength, flying powers, and many many more powers.
          My superhero would save many people all over the world no matter what.  Although my superhero's main job is to save all sinking ships and save the people on them.  Back in 1912 was my superhero's greatest mission.  To save the Titanic.  I had saved all of the people and stopped the ship from sinking in the first place.  Being a superhero would be really fun but you would have a lot of responsibilities.
          I would have to go whenever anyone needs me.  I would be like Super Man and change really fast in a telephone booth.  I would love to be a superhero and save lives.  But I would want my superhero side to be a secret so no one would know it was me.  The Flying Titanic to the rescue.

One Mistake Ruins it All

          Talking on a phone while driving is a very bad idea.  Many people could get hurt just from someones mistake.
          I feel that talking on a phone while driving is a very bad thing to do and an even worse habit to get into.  Talking on a phone while driving is very dangerous.  Many bad things can happen just from answering a phone call or a text.  Some things that could happen if you use your phone while driving is that you could injure or even kill yourself or someone else.  You could damage your car and have to pay many fines for the damage.
          Bluetooth is better than actually using you phone. by hand.  Even though some people think Bluetooth is safe its really not.  Studies have shown that it is still bad to talk on the phone using Bluetooth because it distracts you from the road.  If you get a phone call and you think that it is important then pull over and answer it.  Some great ways to prevent you from talking on the phone while driving is to turn your phone off, if you don't want to do that you can even put your phone is driving mode, also just put your phone out of sight.  You could even have someone else in the car answer our phone for you.  When you look down at your phone you are putting yourself and others at risk.  Everything can wait.
          Try to encourage other people to not use their phones while driving and just put their phone down.  Don't put yourself or others at risk and drive safely.  Next time you get in a car turn your phone off so it won't distract you.  No one in the world needs to be distracted while driving.  All your focus should be on the road ahead of you.
