7th grade reflection

When I first arrived in August I thought it was going to be another terrible long year. I soon realized that this year was going to be different because the teachers left the responsibilities of the work you had to do to you, instead of the teachers having to chase you down. Personally, I like this because I usually do all of my work on time. Then by October I had figured out how the teachers did things and wanted things such as what order the class progressed throughout the period. Eventually I figured that every single teacher liked homework done on time (it took me quite a while). In seventh grade, I learned that responsibilities are very important later in life.I also learned that teachers don’t expect much from you if you know how to please them. The last thing I learned was how to factor quadratic equations. As the year comes to a close, I am excited to finally jump into the summer. My advice for next years seventh graders are
1. Do your work.
2. Please the teachers.
3. Don’t get addicted to your ipad.

The Mystery of the Hamster

_On my seventh birthday, I received a little box with a furry creature inside from my parents. I was overwhelmed with joy because I had been wishing to have a hamster for almost a year now. I picked up the hairy little rodent and placed him in our already-planned cage. After about a two weeks, he wasn’t eating anything even when I remembered to feed him in 1st grade. He soon died shortly after and everyone in the family was sad.
Before I had time to mourn him, I was already pleading for another one. Then on my eighth birthday I received the same exact box as the one a year ago. I then picked him up and dropped him in the same cage as the last on. This one seemed to be more intelligent than the last because every time we opened the door, he thought was a chance to escape.
“Have a good day,” my mother said to me as I was getting ready to go to the bus stop. I approach the door and jump back in surprise as I see Hammy Ham squirming in the trash can.
“How did you get in there, Hammy?” I inquire pointlessly at him. After that day, I was checking on him more often to find out more about the trash can scenario. A day later when I returned from school he was gone.

My Favorite Poem

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight,
To cool in the peppermint wind.
Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black,
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.
Yes we’ll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we’ll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.

Shel Silverstein

I like this poem because this poem is very metaphoric about the nature, which I enjoy a lot. It also tells a lot about the enjoyment of the environment.

My Favorite Toy




This was the souvenir toy I brought back from Lego Land, California. I still remember the day I came back, I had already ripped open the box to start working on it. I had to have some help from my brother for a while, but after a few times, I got the hang of it. Even though I was in 2nd grade, with no homework, the project still took me over a month because it was so complicated. But after those days were over, I was drivin’ like a maniac.

I played with it every time my mom didn’t give me something to do, which was basically less than an hour everyday. Ah, youth is golden…so that meant about 5 hours for drag races, cool stunts, crashes, and my favorite, car washes.

After about 100 car washes, the little steering wheel started to get really sticky. But at that age, I didn’t know what was going on, so more times the little red Ferrari went into the shower. The pieces started to get lost and after a few more weeks, it wouldn’t even drive anymore. That was also the year my mom got my brother and I a computer. As more and more days pass, the thought of that little red car gets shoved farther and farther into the back of my mind as new computer games refresh it everyday. So now, that Californian souvenir just sits on the top shelf of my bookcase and collects dust.

My City

Austin is the best place I could wish for. I mean what place has an iFly, a JumpStreet, a TopGolf, plus the best weather in one place! What place seems better that this? Austin is a great place to go on vacation because of the great fun you could have here!
Firstly, Austin has the coolest buildings a city could offer, such as a TopGolf. TopGolf is a huge golfing area where the balls have sensors to tell you how far and how accurate you are! You get infinite balls so don’t worry about running out! More cool buildings include the Austonian, a 27-story building in downtown Austin, and the iFly, a free-fall simulator. There are plenty of activities for you to enjoy on your visit to Austin!
Moving on, Austin has the perfect weather for any of your planned activities. Any walk in the park or game of frisbee will always be enjoyed with the bright sunshine and cool weather! Get out of the hotel and play in the luscious grass and shining sun! The outdoors will always be a nice place to be!
Austin has many great things planned for you, so all you need to do is plan a trip! Austin is the best place to take your next vacation, so do it now!

Food Is Necessary

Aaarrgghh! My stomach!! I wish I had eaten food in the past few days. I really need food!
For starters, food makes you happy. For instance, after eating lunch I was I was in a much better mood for the rest of the the day. Ahhhh that feels so much better. I feel nice and full and I think I will be smiling ’till I go to bed. Eating really makes my body feel happy.
Next, you could die without food. Furthermore, without the energy food gives you you will starve to death. I like eating food because I like being alive and happy.
I’m all, food is some thing we can’t live without. Survival is the goal of humanity, so savor it! Crunch! Ahhhh! That feels so much better.

Getting Sick

This week I caught the flu on Thursday and felt terrible until Sunday. My mom always told me to wash my hands before eating, but I took no regard to her warning. I regret doing that because I had to sleep all the way through Friday (good thing it was a snow day).
On Thursday, I had started to cough very badly and told my mom I probably had to stay at home. I started to feel more tired every hour until finally on Friday I laid down and went to sleep from 3:00 to 9:00 and then again at10:00.
After I had slept I had recovered a lot and I finally had enough energy to get up and get a glass of water. From there I fully recovered and came to school on Monday.

Learning how to ski

The first time I went to Angel Fire to ski, was a big failure. Why? I tumbled down a massive hill while felling like a pro. It all started out when I first arrived and rode a ski lift over the white snow covered mountain. I started down the patchy snow and thought that skiing wasn’t to tough for me. I started to zoom past the other beginners rushed down the mountain. As I reached the bottom, I thought I was a pro already. So I went again.

I enjoyed looking at the mountain from a bird’s eye view. I got off and I went to challenge the mountain again. This time the mountain won. As I reached the steep part of the hill I lost control and tumbled into the snow. Now I know that you should walk before you run.


This Saturday I am going to take a SAT. I will not be looking forward to it because I don’t want to sit in a hot stinky room for 4 hours. I would rather be at home playing video games or reading a book. I took a practice one on MLK day and did not like it in any way. I am not looking forward to this.

Winter Break

This winter break I am going to Lake Tahoe to see my cousins on my mothers side in California. After we see them, we will travel to the ski lounge and start skiing. I only gone skiing twice, so this is my third time. I am very excited to ski again for the third time. We will be leaving on Thursday, so I can’t wait!
