End of Year Speech for 2014

I'm not sure whether or not I've posted this before, and I'll be shocked if you find this already posted from 2014. This is my end of year speech presentation in which I talked about my experience as a student councillor. I remember when I was saying my speech to the class - well, the remainder of the class, some other students left for kapa haka practice. I remember at one point during the speech I stopped and played around with some jovi crayons, "distracting" myself from the speech.

I've got to say, this presentation alludes to the countless puns I would make from mid-2015 onwards.

Explanation: How To Become a Good Student

2014 piece of writing that I feel is relevant to my mindset at this point in time.

Hi, there, blog.

Forgive me for the lack of posting lately, I've been busy and haven't made blogging a major priority.

I'm planning and working on stuff for school and getting things together to make myself the "better me" - which in this case is my alter-ego from May and still continuing in August, who I've given a name.

William.

A combination of me (Willy) and my previous alter-ego Abraham. So that I'm not fully in character the whole time.

I've realised that Gracepath Talk 2017 wasn't finished. My bad. I can't really leave the series like that. I'll get back to it in the next holidays, yeah? It's the fact that I stop blogging during a series that's left me with the yearn to blog like I used to - I will get back to it soon, I just need time to think about how to keep blogging a blogpost series (or keep blogging in general) without abruptly leaving it - quite like the Today I Learned... blogpost series. I was doing great throughout most of February, but it then went from a daily post to a weekly post to a monthly post to a bi-monthly post to a...you get what I mean. Today At School... was a good attempt, but leaving it once again ruined it.

As this character of mine, I am sure to figure out something that I can do to get back to blogging consistently.

Soon, reader...soon...

The Final Sprint...

Hi, there.

Another post from long ago in my archives in Google Drive. Sometime in 2015, Ms. Kyla approached me one day to ask if I can come up with an imaginative recount so that she could use it as an exemplar. I wrote this in a few hours and had it checked by Mehi (really great friend of mine). It wasn't in my character to end the recount the way it ended, but it was really nice to do something different once in a while.

Some teachers requested some access to the document, and I kindly did so.

Anyway, here's the piece...
