Summer Learning Journey - Day 10 - Activities One and Two
(read in fast pace)
Hi reader this is Week THREE, the LAST week, of the Summer Learning Journey, and this is the first and second activity, HERE WE GO!
(now you can read normally)
BUT, before I go further, I do want to point out something...I’m not really a sporty guy.
Take a picture of yourself playing one of the most popular New Zealand sports and upload it along with a short caption describing who is in the picture, the sport you are playing, and why you like playing it.
This is me a little while ago playing kilikiti. I like playing it (well, I just play it for fun) because my family loves this game. In case you want to know, I almost hit the ball out onto the neighbour’s yard!
Usually, like some websites say, and it’s quite true, the way the ball goes after it’s hit by the bat, it’s unpredictable where it goes.
Kilikiti (pronounce it quickly: kih-lee-kih-tee) it is gaining popularity in New Zealand across many pacific islanders, mainly Samoans, as Kilikiti originated from Samoa, and is regarded to be one of the national sports of the pacific nation. It’s a variation of cricket, and usually the rules of the game are made by the people playing. It’s a bit confusing, but you get the idea once you play a lot of it.
Write a short paragraph describing your sporting hero. Who is he/she? What sport do they play? Why are they your favourite sportsman or sportswoman?
I don’t have a personal favourite because I’m not into sports, BUT I would have to say Jarryd Hayne. STANLEY, IF YOU’RE READING THIS - WHICH COULD BE A MIRACLE SINCE YOU SAY MY POSTS ARE LONG - I SAY JARRYD HAYNE BUT I AM NOT A DIE HARD FAN OF HIM.
Sorry about that, just putting something out there in case Stanley sees this. He’s my friend, I had a blogging war with him one time. Then Patosina came out of nowher-nevermind, let’s move on.
I chose Jarryd Hayne as my technical sporting hero. It’s probably because Stanley did a presentation on him and it had this inspirational video about him, and how he left N.R.L (National Rugby League in probably Australia because I don't know A LOT about it) to do N.F.L (National Football League in America, again, don't know much about it). Jarryd Hayne played rugby league, before, once again, leaving to do football league. It’s cool how far he’s gone and how much he’s achieved, achieving his dreams and having a good time doing what he loves to do, HAVING A TRUE PASSION for what he does.
