My Favourite Song: E.T

Standard

I love songs, so many it is almost impossible to decide which I like the most. But since this song has been all over the radio, played multiple times on Much Music and a really catchy tune, I have grown to the the song.. ET By Katy Perry and Kanye West! I really like this song because it has a good beat, some awesome lyrics and it also has a really fun music video! The beat in this song is over the top awesome and totally makes me want to sing along every time I hear it. Some songs are like, “la,la,la” but this song is more of a “thump,thump,boom,pow, CHEER!” I really like this because in my eyes no song should be slow and boring… Personally I am more of a pop girl (sorry Austin) 😉 and I really like this song because of it! The second reason why I like this song is because it has song really fun, catchy lyrics that are honestly always in my head. I know this may sound strange but when we were doing our Math Drills yesterday I was singing this song in my head so loud I couldn’t even think! I like these lyrics because they have imagination, what I mean by that is that you can really think of a fun outer space adventure when you hear it. I agree with Austin in some songs that the lyrics have no meaning and are really messed up (agreed)!! But ET (in my eyes) is not one of those songs! And the last reason why I am completely obsessed with the song E.T is because the music video has these amazing effects that make me feel very, “WOWISH”.. if thats a word :P. In the music video Katy Perry in flying around in the middle of nowhere, first an alien. But later on she turns into a mythical looking human/alien that has an AMAZING dress 🙂 I have downloaded it onto my IPod Touch and have watched it over 50 times. The music video is like, 5 minutes long so technically I have watched 250 minutes worth of ET! I love this song o much for all these reasons! I am truly obsessed and I hope there are some other people in the class who agree with me! 🙂

Isn't her hair amazing?!

Drug Voice Paragraph: Marihuana

Standard

Hello helpless human! My name is Marihuana and I am your worst nightmare. I am found in the cannabis flower and I am an ugly greenish grey colour. I was born evil but I do (rarely) have time for some community work such as being a treatment for side effects of chemotherapy. It kills me to do anything good or giving.. UGH! Now onto the good part: what I do to make your pathetic lives even more miserable. There are many fun ways for me to suck you into my schemes like being smoked in a cigar, which can let me attack your body and have you feel the pain for many torturous hours or you can ingest me, which allows me to make you feel dull, lazy, less concentrated, hungrier and feel one of my favourite emotions: Terror! Now if you want to be a model do NOT let me near you! All these terrible things I have mentioned are only for what I like to call “The Wimps” also known as short term users. But if you and I become friends I can create major respiratory problems and put more tar into your body than my enemy, tobacco. One more of my hobbies is to get into your body when you’re pregnant and even cause your baby harm! Feelings that I usually pass on are anxiety and nervousness! My status around town is the “bad boy” because I am illegal and can create fines over $2000. So next time you have me, Marihuana, think of the fun aftershocks I can bring!

Jar Of Hearts: Lyrics

Standard

I love this song! (Not as much as E.T) But I think it is really beautiful and a really fantastic song, with fantasic lyrics, which is why I have the lyrics here so anyone who likes the song as well (You know who you are Chloe! 🙂 ) can see it 🙂 !!!

No, I can’t take one more step towards you
‘Cause all that’s waiting is regret
Don’t you know I’m not your ghost anymore
You lost the love I loved the most

I learned to live, half alive
And now you want me one more time

[Chorus:]
Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Who do you think you are?

I hear you’re asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
But I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms

I’ve learned to live, half alive
And now you want me one more time

[Chorus]

It took so long just to feel alright
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed
‘Cause you broke all your promises
And now you’re back
You don’t get to get me back

Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don’t come back for me
Don’t come back at all

Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don’t come back for me
Don’t come back at all

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

Independent Reading Journal #4 (May): Run For Water Flows Again.

Standard

Question: Record at least 3 intresting pieces of imformation or ideas with examples.

Title: Run For Water Flows Again

Author: Cam Tucker

AR Level: N/A                  AR Points: N/A

I was very interested about reading an article called “Run For Water Flows Again” because it had many interesting facts about the event and the impact it has on everyone. The first fact about Run For Water is that they are hoping for more people to participate in the runs. They think this will happen because over the years of doing the marathon, more people have showed! An example of why I think this is an important event for Abbotsford and how there will be more runners is when the town participates together, they feel a better energy and would want to do more within the community. The second thing I learned in this article is that all the money raised in the “Run For Water” marathon goes towards clean water in a country that doesn’t have much water. In this case, they are giving water to Ethiopia! This really showed me that our small(ish) community can make a difference that could possibly save a person’s life!! 🙂 An example of why i think we should continue with the runs is because it gives everyone from the mayor to a Grade 6 student a sense of pride.  What I’m trying to say is one small gesture can become large and make a MAJOR difference. The last thing I learned about the run held here, in Abbotsford is everyone can participate in the run, even us! Now your probably thinking, “Uh, I’m not much of a runner!” You  don’t have to run far distances because there are 3 different lengths of runs. There is the 42.2 km run for major athletes, a 22.1 km for pretty good runners and last but not least, a 5 km run for anyone! They like to call the 5 km run the “Fun Run”! This is a very good thing for our community! For example, middle schoolers can run and learn how to give at our age! These facts all encouraged me to think about doing the “Run For Water.” 🙂

Independent Reading Journal #3 (May): Fairy

Standard

Question: How does this book make you look at life differently?

Title: Fairy Author: David Bouchard and Dean Griffiths

AR Level: 2.9              AR Points: 0.5

I think that the book “Fairy” really makes me think about life in a different, magical way! The first reason I think of life more magicly when I read this book is because the characters aren’t those normal looking, not out of the ordinary people. They have wacky hair, buldging eyes and fun outfits that make you wonder if anyone is like that in the real world! One character that is out of the ordinary is Mr. Stubbs. Mr. Stubbs has a huge mostash, eyes that are WAY too far apart and hair that looks like it’s never been combed! The second reason why I feel like I am living in a magical world when I read this book is because the characters are so clueless. In a normal world that has no magic everyone pays attention and is at least minorly in tune to what their doing and their surroundings… Something that doesn’t happen very often in the book “Fairy”. An example of a time when some of the family members were totally toned out is when the little fairy man riding a motorcycle threw a flame ball at the father’s newspaper. He didn’t even look up! But maybe that is because of the fact that the fairy man isn’t even as big as a cup of coffee!! The last reason why I feel that the book gives life a magical feel is because all the people are forced against their will to do something crazy. This is all due to the fact that the fairy man has powers that can control anybody he wants to control or punish.  One of the funniest things the man fairy did to make the people look silly is by making the father dance like a ballerina! I think the dad is definatly one of the fairy’s biggest victims. But back to the story.. When the father is dancing wearing a frown on his face, he is also sporting a lovely pink tutu and tights! These ideas all support the fact that the book “Fairy” makes me look at the world like a magical place!!

My Favourite Movie: Never Say Never

Standard

My favourite movie is most definatly Never Say Never for many good reasons. To start off this post I would like to say, any bieber haters out there, read this through and even though everyone has different opinions, try to see a good side of Justin Bieber (please!?)

There are many reasons for me thinking that Never Say Never is the best movie I have ever seen. The first reason is it is an inspirational story about a 17 year old Canadian boy from Stratford Ontario who followed his dreams and basically, never said never! I really think the story behind Justin Bieber is amazing. I mean, Justin grew up in a small town, with divorced parents and not alought  of money! He just started playing his beat up guitar in from of crowds in the town and posted YouTube videos of him singing songs like “So Sick” By Neyo. I really think this story has a twist in the inspiration of it! What I mean by that is it makes you wonder, “What other great talents are starting to post videos that may be discovered in the future?” The power of this movie makes you think that you can truly do whatever you want and have it turn out well… This is one of the reasons I really look up to Justin.

The second reason Never Say Never is my favourite movie is because it shows behind the scenes of the magic (the concerts, interviews and Justin himself…) I really liked being able to see all the crew setting up different things for the show (like his flying heart that soars over the crowds) because it isn’t just like, “Justin go out there and sing right now”. Many people don’t realize it but lots of work goes into setting up one concert! Another thing that you saw behind the scenes of is how he managed his voice. Halfway through the movie Justin Bieber lost his voice and he had to cancel one show (something he had never done before) and it was very hard for him! Justin had to lie in his tour bus and wait for his voice to come back, not even aloud to talk to his friends or family. Sit. Sit. Sit… It must have been pure torture! I just think that all the outfits and pretty smiles aren’t what the really celebrity life is about. To be honest, it looks quite stressful and hard to deal with!

The last reason Never Say Never rocks is because, of course, it has tons of Justin in it! You all know that I can never get enough of Bieber, but in this movie, there is so much info and fun things about him that you don’t think it will ever end! Some interesting things anyone who watchs the movie gets to see about Justin is him hanging out with his friends, the stress, and his feelings about fans and concerts! I love seeing so much Justin, for the obvious reasons but also for serious reasons. Some people think that he is just fake and not a real well, human being! If you ever watch this movie it will prove all you haters wrong! When I see this I really know he has feelings, that he wants to help others and also when he is acting like a regular 17 year old guy! For example, when Justin was backstage a few hours before a show, he put a piece of pizza on top of a garbage can lid and then ate it! I even yelled “EWWW” during that part! I hope you all know that I still fully believe in anything Justin does! 🙂

I was so excited when I bought the movie!!!

*^Here is a special Bieber Message: GOOD JOB JUSTIN! AT THE BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS LAST NIGHT HE WON 8 AWARDS!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!^*

***PS: Justin also talked about how he is working on another CD!! Can’t wait!!***

Bruno Mars Concert: Almost Here! :)

Standard

Hi Division 17! I am so excited and I just wanted to let all of you awesome people know why!! Remember my Spring Break post and how I talked about how I got Bruno Mars tickets for my birthday present?! Well, time goes by fast and it is a short 18 days until I head out to Vancouver and see him LIVE in Rogers Arena (where the Canucks play!) I have so many reasons for being extremely excited about this event.

For starters, I get to have a day in Vancouver which is really awesome! I love Abbotsford and all but Vancouver is way better in my opinion. I love going over the bridge and seeing the ocean, the city and just the fresh Canadian scenery that you sometimes miss her in Abby. I am also really excited because I am meeting up with my bestest, closest friend EVER, Jade at the concert, who also has tickets! I love hanging out with Jade and because she is in the other Blue House class I never really get to see her… We both love Bruno Mars so much and this will definitely be an outing that our parents may want to bring ear plugs…. 🙂 The last reason that I am so excited is because this is my first ever concert in a statium. A few years ago I went to the PNE over the summer and I saw a disney star, Mitchel Musso sing. It was really cool but it was a free concert and all, so I didn’t really get the whole feel for what a concert really is! I love music in general and singing is one of my loved hobbies (even though my voice sounds like a baby pig being run over by a semi 😉 ) so I will totally be belting out the songs at the concert! One more thing I am totally prepared for is what I am going to wear! Guys, I know you don’t really care all that much about clothes but girls need to look good at anything, especially if you are going to a concert for one of your 7 husbands (yeah, you can ask me about that another time 🙂 )… So what I am planning towear is a white T-Shirt that is written on with tons of lyrics and “I Love BM” in fun bright colors! I will also be wearing some cheap versions of Bruno’s famous glasses that he is always caught wearing!!

Overall I am so excited and I am counting the days until the arrival of this exciting day!! ❤
