This week I think that I helped others. Firstly, whenever I go to the paper cutter, I will take out the cut paper that’s left there (if there’s any) and put it in the recycling bin. Also, yesterday when we were doing work on grammar, I helped not only my partner but also the other group sitting next to me, because they were all asking me….Then, when we were doing math work, I teamed up with the person sitting next to me to finish a complicated comparing fractions maze. Finally, today I donated money to Habitat for Humanity by wearing RED. Here’s my outfit:
Also, me and my friend are going to participate in an instrument contest (held by one of the students), so we’re working hard – ’cause it’s a duet! (AND it’s pretty hard)
Have a great weekend! :P :) :D
“I hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream in my cardigan, walked into the land of fame excess, am I gonna fit in? I jumped in the cab here I am for the first time, look to my right and I see the Hollywood sign, this is all so crazy, everybody seems so famous! My tummy’s turning and I’m feeling kinda homesick, too much pressure and I’m nervous. That’s when the taxi man turned on the radio, and the Jay-Z’s song was on, and the Jay-Z’s song was on, and the Jay-Z’s song was on! So I put my hands up, they’re playing my song, the butterflies fly away, nodding my head like yeah, moving my hips like yeah, put my hands up, they’re playing my song, I know I’m gonna be OK, yeah-eah-eah-eah, it’s a party in the USA, yeah-eah-eah-eah, it’s a party in the U-S-AA!”

Fun Fact: Did you know that a peanut can be converted into a diamond?
And NO, not the wrong kind of peanut… :P
Sorry I’m just obsessed with Pitch Perfect.
Aca-scuse me? Aca-believe it!!!
So, the most – I guess – exciting thing that happened this week was the CNY performance. NO, not because people can watch us, NO, not because we can show off our awesome skills, NO, not because we get to miss parts of class BUT because of the experience. I mean, I have 3 PERFORMANCES IN A ROW. First: choir – I’m wearing my costume for the next act and I have this headdress, tons of makeup and I’m all sparkly – pretty noticeable. Then, I rush backstage for Chinese Dance. Ya, that’s pretty fine. But then, right after, I have to go around the back, take of my sleeves, pick up 2 identical pom-poms (blue especially because I want to… :) ) then run out to dance with the teachers. And GUESS WHAT: On Wednesday we got dismissed late so I almost missed the bus! And, I was sweating like mad…urgh. Well anyways, hope I do well on the performance…’cause I’m TOTALLY leaving this place!
Fun Fact (not doing sick ones this time): Did you know that astronauts can’t whistle in space? …..Maybe it’s because the air is blocked….or there’s too little area in front of their face…but I don’t know. It’s just a true fact from Weird But True.

We had a lot of work this week…
We wrote speeches for the exhibition (but they were our 1st drafts, so they weren’t THE best), the class debated on an article in the news about a lady texting then falling into a water fountain (I got to be one of the judges and it was pretty cool!), we worked on a fractions math menu, where you do activities based on fractions (but I thought it was pretty easy), and up to my 2 favourites….THE 100 DAY OF SCHOOL DANCE VIDEO AND DESIGNING OUR OWN AWESOME PUBLIC SPACE FOR G6s WITH OUR GROUP!!! I liked the dance because we got to go to different places and just randomly dance. When it was put into a video it looked really great! I also liked the public space designing because we got to put kinda ANYTHING WE WANT and when 2 of the boys drew it out it looked pretty good.
Fun Fact: NEVER put a popcorn machine in a random public space because that just sounds WRONG
Fun Fact #2: NEVER put a ‘d’ in front of an ‘ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww’ because in the end it’ll just sound bad and your parents might – um – kill you I guess – for saying it.
