Awwwww man I’m so hungry.We do have food in the fridge, but it isn’t cooked yet. And I am not the best at cooking. The first time I tried to cook pancakes; they didn’t turn out that well. I took cooking classes in school and that helped a lot, but I can’t remember the last time I cooked. I hope I’ll get better by the time I’m living on my own, because if I don’t, I’ll be living off fast food restaurants which will decrease my funds, and increase my size. And I don’t want that to happen, EVER. Oh! My waffles are ready! Alright bye!
Do you ever get the feeling that homework is just piling up like dirty laundry? Well I do. The part I have the most trouble with is the beginning, and if you have that problem too, then this might help. I’ve found that if you start on the little stuff; it’s kind of like warming up for the bigger things, and it makes the work easier overall.
Today, the biggest complaint I hear from my classmates is too much homework. It seems like all our teachers give us homework every day. Now, I know it’s not ALL teachers, and it’s not EVERY day, but it sure seems that way. My dad says that “school is kind of like working at a job, and every job has little things that aren’t that much fun.” But he’s a teacher, so what does he know (ha). And even though we have a lot of homework, our teacher will have a ton more because they have to correct it all! So I guess we don’t have it so bad…
I’m surprised how so many things that are taught in schools today can also be taught on the internet! Depending on if we even have the attention span to read/watch the entire thing. For some students studying certain people or events in school can be difficult, such as historical figures and the impact they have in society, so the teachers can either give them the regular old “hand out questions” thing, or they can disguise the information in a cool video or activity. This can come from all of those fun educational websites on the internet (am I allowed to say that?) or some that most people think of as for goofing off, like the almighty YouTube. I have defiantly learned an excessive amount of information just by watching YouTube videos that have nothing to do with learning. The “Epic Rap Battles of History” is an amazing example of this, because they make fun of these historical and fictional characters using accurate facts according to legitimate research (with some exceptions). It’s also freaking hilarious.
Well. While doing the laundry today, I was thinking about how many chores around the house my parents do for me, and how I was going to have to do all of them by myself when I moved out. Moving out of my home seems like an idea that’s never going to happen, since I’m fifteen, but it’s really not that far off. I’m in grade 10, high-school, and that was a thing that felt just the same as getting my own place, and growing old. Some things go by and we don’t even notice them, and others that we are waiting for seem like they are getting farther away rather than coming closer. Better learn what we can before that happens!
It’s funny how when you’re falling down the stairs that you can only think about how much it is going to hurt after the shock wears off. I fell down the stairs a while ago while trying to catch my friend. It was sports night a cadets that night and my friend didn’t know, so when i passed him in the hall, I realized that I had to tell him myself. So I turned around, ran after him and these stairs came out of the blue, so I couldn’t stop myself. Needless to say; It hurt. Fell all the way down, Slip-n-Slide style on my butt. I’m fine now, “but” it hurt a lot then.
Every single person I’ve ever known (including myself) should be tested for, at least, mild insanity. From having voices in my head telling me to ” find the magic rainbow baboon”, to almost every member of my immediate family talking to themselves. And sometimes I catch people that I don’t even know doing the weirdest things like, once in my writing class, I looked over to my classmate’s paper only to see that he was drawing a picture of a bear with the bottom half of it’s body looking like a tree trunk still rooted into the ground, with a fish with an Adam Sandler esque smile and a human nose in its mouth. That picture gave me nightmares.
I don’t like spiders. I don’t hate them, and I know that they are important for eating insects; but they still creep me out (especially the jumping ones).
Spiders have invaded my house and pretty much every other place that I go to regularly. I constantly walk into spider webs and have had multiple encounters with them.
Like today, whilst driving, there was a spider crawling right above my mother’s head. I didn’t want to disturb her while she was driving, but I also didn’t want to start my morning in a ditch, so I had asked her to pull over. She proceeded to ask why, to which i replied “I don’t think you want to know”. After a few guesses, and some promises not to freak out, I told her about the spider. I grabbed a water bottle and smashed the spider into tiny little bits before I declared it dead. I saved a lot of lives today.
“what’cha doin kal?”
“takin off my bandage, lookin for the edge…gotta air it out for the night…”
Well my ‘bad toe day’ started yesterday at the gym when I decided to do a front-flip and went a bit higher than I expected to go. As I landed, the toe in question went under my foot, fallowed by a large ~CRUNCH~ sound. my toe felt as if it had been dipped into a pot of boiling water while being branded with a sodering iron. i looked down at my black sock which was slightly darker than usual, when i took it off, my toe was covered in blood. it was oozing and dripping everywhere. my coach, concerned, told me to get off of the floor because i was ruining it with my blood.
Now i walk with a limp, and am in intense pain all the time, but my mom forces me to go to school so that she can live in luxury when i become a “rich and famous engineer.”
In all seriousness, my toe is feeling better, the nail is still partially attached and i will be able to walk on it tomorrow (famous last words…)

A while ago there was a sort of get together at my school, Charlottetown Rural High School or “CRHS” for short, and this was my understanding of it:
Grade 10 Orientation
OBJECT- To get to know the way around the school and to meet other students
WHO- 12 groups of 8 students, 4 boys, 4 girls, per group
WHAT- Scavenger hunt/Race with CSI trivia, word puzzles, and weird gross challenges (ie. nasty red paste eating challenge; with dog food, balsamic vinegar, jell-o powder, ketchup, mustard, relish, franks red hot sauce… you get the idea.)
A couple of the group activities: 1. group hopscotch 2. mat race (Whole group on mat, move 2nd mat to front, whole group jump on 2nd mat, 1st mat to front)
All and all it was interesting and fun…screaming and running through the halls was encouraged…not at all what i had imagined senior high to be. CRHS might be fun.
Have good times! Kalyon
Yesterday we got to visit the Cosmodome which is 2 hours north of our base by bus. It has everything an astronaut could want to train on.
Kal’s A list:
Antigravity chamber: You are hooked up to a harness that is attached to wires that go up into the ceiling on pulleys & down into another room where a crew matches your weight with a bag of water. This makes you practically weightless so when you jump you will float up as the bag in the nxt room floats down. You can bounce all around the room pushing off walls, floor & ceiling …somersault & spin.
Gyroscope: Belted into chair inside a metal tube circle that rotates horizontally, that is inside a larger metal tune circle that rotates vertically, that is inside a larger one that rotates diagonally! This is a wild 40 second eye bulging spin… You have no idea which way is up … Even after you get off!
Hovercraft: You are strapped into a cockpit with 4 air propelled jet packs to lift & steer your pod around the room like a huge souped-up bumper car from space.
Computer simulator space missions: A room full of computers where you learn about planets, moons & other space stuff by building rockets, going on missions to land Rovers on planets & moons …very cool.
