Happy Thanksgiving y’all! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I ate a lot of food and my mother kept me at the mall till 1am which I’m never gonna do again. Anyway, this week’s blog topic is 3 things we’re thankful for. I’m thankful for a lot of stuff so choosing was pretty hard for me.
The first thing I’m thankful for is food, water, and a home. A lot of people in the world don’t have these and I couldn’t live without food and water, literally. I know a lot of people are thankful for this, but I think people need to think about how important it is to have food and water. Also, I have a home where I can stay safe, sleep, and never leave no matter how long I stay indoors. I don’t know how life would be if I didn’t have enough food or water. I’m really picky and I’m lactose intolerant so I’m also thankful for dairy free food. Life would be terrible without lactose free food.
Next, I’m thankful for friends and family. All my relatives that aren’t related by marriage live on Oahu which is around 100 miles of water away from me. Luckily, I have friends which is just as good. There is too much to list, but if you’re reading this you’ll know who you are. I still have this friend from preschool and his name is Keith, or Laurent (Your choice). Luckily my friends still talk to me after I talk about “Newsies” everyday which I’m listening to as I’m writing this blog. If you haven’t already watched it, it’s a broadway musical that they recorded and put on Netflix. Although most of my relatives live on Oahu, for the relatives that live here on Kauai, thank you my parents for the house, and I just got a room, thank you sister for the room and the Air Conditioning in the living room, thanks brothers for moving out so I could move into your old rooms.
Finally, is school. I get really stressed out from school projects, especially media work, but sometimes it’s worth it in the end. I’m also Thankful for Hiki No wanting every Hiki No project I worked on, besides the the 1st ever media project I did which is the Franchise Piece. All but 1 of my friends I made were from school. Although I don’t get why half of the stuff we learn in school, the other half like Art, S.T.E.M., and Media helped me find out I like technology and art which is why I like making animations. I’m thankful for having good teachers. I’m thankful for learning for learning how to play the Oboe, even though if I stay for next year, I can move onto the Bassoon or bass clarinet, and I’ll have to learn to play the clarinet, cymbals, and flute and choose one for marching band.
That’s what I’m thankful for. I’m lucky to have what I have and I don’t know what I’d do without friends and family. Have a great weekend and a great day.
Hey everyone, I’m back again for another blog. This is my second blog so far this quarter. I haven’t talked to you guys in a while so this week I’ll be giving you an update about how school has been going so far, and what’s been going on with school this school year. I’ll talk to you about media, school, and what’s been happening so far this school year.
First is media. So far this quarter I had Inside Scoops with Evan which was really stressful, but we were able to turn it in on time with one mistake that we know of. I was really surprised since we turned them in, recorded them, and worked on the scripts on the same day. I did quite a lot of editing for our Morning Announcements Short Film along with doing the STN Fall Challenge which I heard Hiki No wants so we’ll be working more on it. Janine and I finished the last of the Ethan Teves Video Drafts and it aired already. I feel very excited, but stressed because I end up working on another Hiki No video right after I finish working on another Hiki No video. It’s worth it in the end though. Also, the King Kamuali’i Event video is almost done, we’re just looking over it again and passing it around between Evan, Keith, and I. Also, we’re teaching a Middle School at Boston and I’m on the CAPs team.
Second is school. I’m doing a Science Fair project with Kate who is also in media and that’s about all of the events that’s going on this month. I’m in band and I play the oboe which is kind of hard to play and I’m marching in this Christmas parade we have. Since it’s my first year, I’m only passing out candy and holding signs or banners. Also, next month we have a CKTV Breakfast fundraiser and so I’ve been going around asking a lot of people. Finally, the rest of my classes have been going good. In late December I’ll be having my first band performance which I’m nervous for. I’m doing this Science Olympics class and my partner is Tematahira who is a 6th grader and is really cool,
Finally, is about what has happened this school year so far this school year. I miss a bunch of the people from last year who have moved on from media, but as long as they’re happy, I’ll support them and I still keep in touch with most of them. I’ve had a lot more work to do this year and without Kolten things are different. I’m not used to having 2 partners and I don’t really think that it’s really been working well, so I’m trying to find a way to change that. I’ve worked on new morning announcements openings, but they probably won’t be going on the morning announcements till next year judging by how little time I have to work on it. I’ve been having a lot of work and stress this year. I know other people have a lot of work too, but I haven’t really had free time and most of the it’s school work, band work, or media work.
In conclusion, that’s how the school year has been going for me. It’s a bit long for some of you to read. So many new changes, stress, and work to do. Make it a great day Bye.
