One Night in 2009...



Hi, there. These are one of the broadcasts by Abraham Burnley made in 2009.
A little clue to help you for when you need to think about something.

Term Three's Last Day...The Last Block...

Lunchtime's finished. I went on to help Ms Ellison in her class. She was a new teacher whose been with the school for a while, if you didn't know. Anyways, I went to help her put away those classroom library shelve-thingies. I couldn't find a picture but hopefully you get me. It has those wheels that make it easy to transport.

It wasn't a long walk. I was still sick, unfortunately, so I was feeling woozy after the walk from Room 3 to one of the old relocatables. Mrs Manuyag, who happened to be in the Art Room at the same time, asked if the library shelf thingy was going to be used at all. We said, "Probably not." or something related, and she took it. Because it's no use to have something to sit there...it's best to have someone else use it.

After a brain fog, I realised that these skinny blue things that were left in the relocatable that we were in, was actually what Ms Ellison needed. I couldn't believe that they folded out to be reading shelves! How weird! Yet cool that it can just...fold out like that! For helping out, we got a piece of cake.

I guess you can say...that was a piece of ca-
Patty cake, patty cake,
Baker's man, ba-ke. Piece of cake, it was a piece of cake.

I walked back to the classroom where Stanley had then announced, "There's Willy!" and while I was enjoying that really moist piece of cake, I ended up being part of a dance battle. Boys VS Girls. Well, this was going to be weird. Weird as in, me dancing to music I never thought I would dance to. After a couple of songs, we then ended up doing songs from the production (which, in this sense, was last night).

We were laughing and smiling at the songs we did, it was a miracle we knew all of it! Well, some of it, I was struggling throughout the whole thing, and only knew PROPERLY the Actor's Performance. By the time we did the Ballet Performance the second, that's where we lost it. I laughed my heart out already, and it was gonna happen again. But, with the end of the day approaching, it was time to go...

To the assembly. Walking over there, to the hall, where it was weirdly in another direction (the stage was the back, the back was the front). I was weirded out, but got used to it...about a minute in the hall. It was just a end of term assembly, where we all were reminiscing about the term that was...term three...

After the assembly, I walked out of the hall, and Marcus was there again. "Willy, look at this..." he told me, and I did look at something. It was the mural outside of the hall. If you've seen this mural outside of the hall then you know what I'm talking about. I moved back to see the full meaning. I laughed alot, but then realised that Mehi was nearby. She shook her head as I tried to proclaim my innocence to a person who interpreted that picture in a very wrong way. It was a joke, of course, but I didn't say it first!

It was Marcus! And that, reader, is how my term ended...looking at two rocks that represented something I cannot describe because then that will make this blog weird...and walking off home to think about that thought, and try and remove it...

Thee Ennd.

Finally...

Finally...

A picture of the supermoon now taken. With me in it!


Sure, the moon may look a bit...sun-shaped? I don't really know how to describe that shape but it's still a supermoon! If you're wondering what a supermoon is, click here for a post I did last year on the Tamaki Primary School News Blog. I need to start updating that blog, it hasn't been updated in months!

Months! If you want to see a previous post about the moon, mostly about the lunar eclipse that happened just before, click here.

The Goddess of the Volcano...

Hi, there. This post is going to be one of two stories that didn't make it into the final cut of the production, but, was still practised and done during practises and Performing Arts practises. Enjoy this first myth about the Goddess of the Volcano, a myth from Hawaii.

This myth is called ‘The Goddess of the Volcano’. Kilauea was a fun and happy place to live. There was enough food for everyone to have full bellies and the people spent their time making music and singing and playing different games like ball games and races. There was a massive volcano in the centre of the island - this is where the Mighty Volcano Goddess Pele lived.

Kahawali was a young and brave chief who lived on Kilauea. He was the fastest and most skilled at the sled races the men took part in, racing down the side of the mighty volcano in the middle of the island. He liked to race all the time to show how he was the best on the island at racing.

One day Kahawali was approached by his friend Laka…
“Aloha Kahawali, Pehea ‘oe? How are you? Do you fancy a race down the volcano today?” Laka questioned Kahawali,
“Aloha Laka," Kahawali replied, "I'm great thank you. A race sounds like fun. Let’s see who has the skills to reach the bottom without smashing into the volcanic rocks!” he said, and so, Laka and Kahawali journeyed up and up, higher and higher, to the ledge near the top of the volcano, carrying their sleds ready to race.

"Right, it’s on - let’s race.” Kahawali said,
"I have been practicing Kahawali - I think I may be able to beat you this time!" Laka told Kahawali,
"Haha Laka," Kahawali doubted Laka. "I am the greatest sled racer on the island! I hope there are some people waiting at the bottom of the volcano to see me win."

So the race began…Laka and Kahawali sped down the side of the volcano, dodging the jagged volcanic rock, zipping in and out of the trees, going faster and faster until they reached the bottom of the volcano and onto beautiful white sand of the beach.

"I won! I won! I am still the best in all the village!" Kahawali celebrated,
"I thought I had you Kahawali," Laka said in defeat, "but you are a skilled racer. Can I try again to beat you?" he asked Kahawali, and so the two warriors made their way back up the mountain to the ledge ready to race again. They had both just sat down at the top of the volcano to catch their breath when...
"What’s going on here?” Pele, the Goddess of the Volcano, asked. "Who are you two men? And what are you doing up here on the volcano ledge?"
“Aloha wahine," Kahawali said, "I am Kahawali the chief of Kilauea. This is my friend Laka. We are having a competition to see who is the fastest racing down the volcano on our sleds.”
"I would like a turn. Let me race you.” She turns to Laka, who is holding his sled,
“Give me your sled so I can race.” she demanded him. Laka was nervous about the strange wahine, but he gave over his sled. He tried to give a warning to his friend Kahawali to take care, but Kahawali was thinking about being able to show his village how great he was, by beating another person in a volcano sled race.

The two lined up at the ledge…and they were off...they whizzed down the volcano, getting closer and closer to the finish line at the beach, the villagers had gathered to cheer on their chief when suddenly...CRASH! The wahine’ sled caught a rock and she came tumbling off the sled. Kahawali heard the crash but continued on to take his glory at the finish line surrounded by his villagers.

“I am still the greatest racer on the island - no one can beat me!” Kahawali cheered.
Pele picked herself up, brushed some stuff off her, and walked towards Kahawali. “I want to race again. I know everything about this volcano and I know I am greater than you at racing”, and with that, they went back up the volcano. Kahawali was smirking and smiling the whole way, confident he was still the best on the island. When they reached the top, Laka asked who won, and Kahawali, confidently, replied that he won, of course, and asked if there was any doubts about that.

Pele wasn't happy with that.

“Enough of your boasting! Do you not know who I am?! I am Pele Goddess of the Volcano! I will show you how powerful and great I am and then I will win the next race!" she yelled out with anger, and gesturing to the volcano, it bursted with burning lava, coming straight for Laka and Kahawali. They scream and shout in terror as they try to escape the lava. Laka, unfortunately, started to lag behind, and was sadly consumed by the lava. Kahawali continued on to his village, trying to shout warnings.

But it was too late. The lava smothered the whole village. He was raced into the surf, and lay there, looking sorrowfully at his once beautiful island, all destroyed. His only choice was to turn away and try and swim to a new island, to start again.

The End.

In The Morning...

It's alllll fiction, by the way...


Term Three's Last Day...The Middle Block...

I went to watch Stanley play a game. Don't judge me! It's not like I would choose "watch a friend play a game" over "watch a cool movie" all the time. This is one of those times...but anyways, I watched Stanley play, and he was pretty good at it! But other guys around the other side of the room (there were two sides, the movie side, and the free time side) were being loud every now and then, and I had to, because it was a habit now that I did it at the production (believe me, I had no idea I'd do this all the time now), quiet them down. With the momentary help from Stanley and others.

I was laughing myself out at some moments during his "gameplay". There was this cell that had a recurring name that would be meant rude, but sounded funny. Really funny, and to believe, even now, that it came first. It came first. I laughed so much I couldn't contain myself, I had to turn away and tell myself repeatedly to stop laughing, because then I'd be a hypocrite, sort of...I told them to be quiet, now I laugh out loud.

By then, Stanley had said a phrase that would've sounded extremely wrong, and before I could stop laughing, I continued laughing. "Shush, Willy." Stanley said. Sure, this isn't what he really said, but come on, on this blog, good language is spread around here! And then Marcus came on. He saw Stanley, because his name was Hitman1. "Oh, hi, Stan!" he said,
"Huh?" I said to myself quietly, because if Marcus could see Stanley, he could probably be on the screen. But where is he? Stanley's cell was big, so why can't I see Mar...cus...
"Oh..." I say aloud, finally realising that Marcus is a small cell, I almost start to laugh again
"Shush." Marcus replied. Again, not what he really said.

By the way, on another note, I spent the whole block watching Stanley play. It was almost like Shortland Street, only less dramatic. The only drama by then was that Stanley would've been eaten and the game would be over, or he would've been in the Top 3 Ranking for a long time, and had been there for a long period of time. During that time, this literally happened...

1. Hitman1
Willy: Whoa! Yay! *puts hand on Stanley's shoulder*
Stanley: Yes!
Willy: You're number one!
*almost eight seconds of celebrating*
2.Hitman1
Willy: Oh...
Brandon was now number one.
Willy: Well, that was like, eight seconds! *goes for high-five with Brandon, Stanley gets in the middle of it*

Term Three's Last Day...The First Block...

On Friday, the next day (although this post has no relation to the posts about Production) after the Production Night, it was the last day for Term Three. The thought of having one more term left before I leave wasn't on my mind that much. I actually forgot that this would be the last day! This is beginning to happen every so often, and it's weird. I went to school with my sister, late, as always, for personal reasons that seem pretty private to say for my sake.

Going upstairs into class, I put away my bag and the netbook. And, netbook case, which had the netbook in-urgh, I'll just get to the point. In class, some people got some chocolate and lollies because they brought their forms back. I was one of them. We were only to eat it after packing up. Poor Stan. He was standing behind a chair, looking on at the lollies, looking at Ms Aireen then pointing at the lollies.

"Is someone near me?" Ms Aireen joked.
Hi, everyone!I would like to introduce my friend, Stanley. He doesn't ask so-called, "Stanley Questions" and doesn't state "Stanley Answers".
Then the Year Eights and I went out to help clean the Sommerville Hall, to put some things away. And in the bin. And back to school. A LOT of chairs were needed to take back. Now we have the wooden chairs now. Lots of stuff were carried over, some were carried by hand, some were carried by car, some were carried by...hand, again...and in the end it looked clean! Just a few guys going over to help out some more because they mucked around. And it was past 10:00am. Well, that was fast. The Year Eights - well, the remainder of the Year Eights, there were a small hand of us by the time we came back, cleaned up one side of the classroom space, so that the other side could be used to watch a movie. A movie to watch on the last day. I hope it's one I haven't seen twice. The Maze Runner.

Malaga Fifia Pasifika - A Tamaki Primary School Production - Part 4: Intermission!

"Enjoy the intermission."

The words I said before the intermission began, and I went off to talk with some people.

Big Things Happen In A Small Suburb...

Malaga Fifia Pasifika - A Tamaki Primary School Production - Part 3: Showtime!

Ten minutes passed by. The seats were full of family members, people from the community and school, and some of the past students of Tamaki Primary. I had stood at the pulpit or stand, where I would say my parts in the production. While waiting, I talked a bit with others about my look. One person asked me jokingly, "Trying a new look, huh?". Hah, I never knew a lot of people would like that look.

If you need a description, and hopefully there'll be a picture or video showing me, I was wearing a lei around the neck, a lei around my head, the new aloha shirt, and people said it suited me! Well, the leis on me. How nice! And then, after waiting for the audience to settle down, and getting the nod from Ms Aireen, I begun the evening with a beginning speech. It was about laying some house keeping rules and adding an extra rule at last minute about the baskets that, if any parents would wanted to give some money at any time, would place.

Or the people on stage, either was good. Although, I mentioned the baskets in a way that seemed to give the impression we needed donations. But we did. In a good way. "It's for a good cause!" I added on, with scattered laughter. And it began, with the Choir Group going first. The actor's performance would come straight after them, and, knowing that I still hadn't learnt the whole dance routine from half-way to the end, I began to get hot.

I gave the camera to Maopa, who was part of the backstage group. They were also part of the production too, they just helped with the stage and stuff while they weren't performing. I asked Mrs Komor, "Can I borrow this real quick?" and she replied, "Sure." or something similar, and I started fanning myself with her script. I gave it back to her seconds after, and she fanned me! How nice! And perfect timing as well, we went on!

The crowd was cheering, but I still had one thing in mind.....follow Stanley. Because he probably knew all the moves already, I mean, prior to the production, he taught the guys of the acting group the boy parts for the dance, especially this knee movement thing which was confusing at first. And is still confusing. Still. After we finished our dance routine, we went straight into the first scene.

It was the beginning scene. I talked a bit about the island nation of Hawaiki, the homeland of Kupe (played by Stanley), Tane (his son, played by James), Aroha (his daughter, played by Mehi), and Rata (his wife, played by Mele, WHO HAS WEIRD FEE-

Bloggical Difficulties | Please Read By | FACT: A dolphin's high speed is more than thirty kilometr-

Moving on, Kupe wanted to discuss with his family about the problems facing Hawaiki. Families began to get bigger as time went by, and because of that, more people needed to eat. But with that, animals were hard to hunt. "I was out hunting all day yesterday for a kunekune to eat for dinner, and all I saw were other hunters, not one, single, pig!" Kupe began.
Rata agreed, saying, "I know what you mean. It is getting harder and harder to find fern roots and berries to eat. Even the coconuts and bananas don't grow so readily anymore!"

After a short discussion, they decided to go on their Malaga (Samoan for 'Journey', pronounced Mah-lah-nga). With supplies and food for their long journey, they set off. A month later, they arrive on Hawaii. A couple of people, including the chief, greet them.

BACK TO REALITY: Even though Ricky (who played the chief) having a bit of a stumble with his lines, he still thrived through to try and remember them. The crowd cheered him on in encouragement. The Hawaiian group then performed their item. Somewhere Over the Rainbow was their song, with percussion instruments and ukuleles filling our ears. Great singing!

Then the ballroom dancing group performed. In the production, they were from the American mainland, so their faces were to be painted with the American flag. Their performance was spectacular with the final costumes and the synchronisation at the right timing! It still gets to me even now! It was cool...it had a compilation of different songs from completely different genres of music and...wow, just wow.

Kupe and his family thanked the Hawaiian Chief, and continued on in their Malaga.

I'll do the posts separate. The next post in the series focuses on the Intermission, while I do a new one with the actual production, retold by yours truly. Or me.

Malaga Fifia Pasifika - A Tamaki Primary School Production - Part 2: Backstage!

Hi, again. These series of posts are going to be about that one night that happened on Thursday the 24th of September. Obviously, every school holidays I've got to find one story to put into parts, so luckily this happened recently!

From where I last went off, Quitah, myself, and Ricky had brought over some trays. I went back inside the Sommerville hall, and sat in the audience chairs. I was really tired, by the way. After all, I had just ran through the school. Well, power-walked. It was between those two stages. There are seven six stages of leg transport in my world:

Dead Walk (a walk done after running) --- Walk --- Power Walk --- Jog --- Fast Jog --- Run --- Sprint
no, not sprint, nooo...

After a while of recovering, I went to Ms Aireen, who was adding a little blurb at the beginning of the script. It was about welcoming them, of course, and laying some house keeping rules. Nice name for it, since a lot of people were coming, so rules would be needed. One of them was about being as quiet as possible. But, later in the evening, I knew that was not THAT guaranteed as I thought it would be.

After practising for a while, and sitting and standing countless times for what seemed like ten minutes, I went to take a look backstage to see what was happening. "Ooh, the camera!" I thought, and back dow-WHOA! I missed a step and almost fell down the stairs! Phew!
"I'm alright! I'm alright!" I assured, if anyone heard what happened. Mrs Komor happened to notice the huge BANG! that I left on the one step, and turned around to me.
"We do not want you to die tonight, Willy!" Mrs Komor advised me.
"Don't worry!" I assured her, and by then I made sure I looked where I was going, meaning I would look at the steps and be careful of where I put my feet.

Well, that's changed my perspective on how to walk on stairs forever. I grabbed the camera as people started to come in, and went back up the stairs, carefully, onto the stage to see what was going on. Everyone was in costume and as said from the mini-interviews, "excited and nervous". I interviewed Ms Aireen, complementing the dress she was wearing, and I had a good angle. Moving a bit, I also caught Stanley video-bombing the interview! Haha! He was just making thumbs-up signs and smiling a lot.

I walked off with the camera after interviewing almost everyone in the acting group, and Mrs Komor asked for the camera. "How do you work this?" she asked,
"Oh, press the red button. I have a feeling you're gonna intervie-
She pressed the red button and began asking me a question,
"I knew you'd interview me." I said to myself, and to the camera, it seems. I answered a question with a genuine smile on my face, and mentioned the little trip-over I had on the stairs, and by then, I had almost 10 minutes of footage done. Or more. I forgot.

Practising Peaceful Play - Thinker's Keys - The Reverse Key

Hi!

Down below this description, is the D.L.O for this Thinker's Key, which is the Reverse Key. That is what that says in the title of the drawing, so I hope none of you get confused when you read "Reverse Key" in reverse. Got that idea from a friend, who had reversed the Thinker's Key logo. Read the drawing to find out what the objective was!

The task also said for 16 ideas. I'll come up with 8 more ideas in a next drawing, though it will take a lot of thinking, DEEP thinking, because the eight ideas shown below was typed down a LONG time ago (probably back in July).

Malaga Fifia Pasifika - A Tamaki Primary School Production

It took many weeks.

Over a month.

Probably two months.

Maybe more, I forgot. It was probably a term.

It took a term.

Many people were involved in the school production, some were last minute. There were some sacrifices made for time, and many mistakes were made, but in the end, it was all worth it. Yesterday, Thursday the 25th, it was the day of the night of the T.P.S School Production Night, the title being Malaga Fifia Pasifika: A Happy Journey Around the Pacific. I was having one of the main roles...

The Narrator! Or, as said in the script...Narrator. So by then, most of the time I was called "Narrator". I would say that this would've been one of the beeeessssttt nicknames foor meee.....

But moving on from my "nickname", I was all dressed up for the role, with a NEW aloha shirt that my mum had brought just earlier. Thanks! 

To skip a few confusing minutes of running in and out of the school, I ran into the Sommerville Special School hall (or, if you want me to confuse myself again, the Old Tamaki Intermediate) at 4:30....well, not exactly, of course. It was just Whaea Petra in the hall, and I went to explore the school. Walking into the school grounds again, there was Taylor, and who I thought was Charday, with two other people, sitting in the park. I walk back, waving at a couple people.

Then I walk back into the hall. By then, I saw Quitah and Stanley walk with cakes. Through the door, Stanley was, from what I thought, was laughing at the sight of me, jokingly. At least that's what I thought.

Seconds later, he dropped a cake. I laughed for a few seconds before realising that someone probably worked hard on making and baking that cake. I mean, I like ca-

Patty cake, patty cake, baker's man,
Bake me a ca-okay, that's enough, haha. Taalk about instant karma! After things got set up, and more actors started to come, like Marcus, Ricky, James, Mehi, and Mele, it was starting to test some microphones that would be later used during the actual production. Ms Aireen arrived with a fabulous dress that was bright, even if the curtains were closed! I asked for the camera from her, and I went off outside, again, to just film some random stuff, that will probably be deleted.

I managed to get some "interviews" (take notice of the quotation marks) with some people holding drinks, walking to the hall, some shots of the school in its probably state during after-school hours, and then I walked back. While I was walking back, though, Quitah was calling some people to help her find some trays for the sausage sizzle. I went along...for no apparent reason, I just wanted to film something.

It was tiring, of course, I ran with them back to the school grounds. Whyy did I run with the camera...whyy...WHYY! I was so puffed out later on! Quitah, Ricky (who came along) and I couldn't find any trays in the staffroom (that's where we first went). So, we rushed downstairs to the hall kitchen. Long story short, we came back with some trays. Done.

Since this is getting long, like it would always do, so I'll continue on in another post coming soon. Soon.

Practising Peaceful Play - Thinker's Keys - Variations Key

Hi, there! This is going to be a start of a bit of Thinker's Keys coming in the way. Thankfully, I can blog these as they require thinking, but also are a good time making a D.L.O for. For now, I did the Variations Key. We (or I) were (or was) learning to develop different ways of encouraging others to have appropriate behaviour. Though the drawing may not show the message or say "encourage" in one of the three ways, it is best to infer to find the main message.


I hope you enjoy the D.L.O! Comment below to give me feedback and feedforward!

Concrete Poem - The Serve...

WALT - write a poem about a type of sports game (I didn't know the actual WALT)


Hi, everyone! Nice to have you read this post, about something new I tried! Room 10, for the past few weeks, worked on writing a poem based on a sport we liked. Thankfully, I completed mine just in time for presenting. But, luckily also, I didn't present!

By the time I post, my teacher may see this. Aw, geez. Oh, well, at least I'll post something. So, anyway, I picked one of my favourite sports, tennis. Yes, even though it involves running, it gets the blood running! And even if I'm bad at remembering where the out line is, at least I can hit the ball! The drawing above shows my poem. It's a concrete poem, the first shape being a tennis racket and the second being a tennis ball. 

It was a bit hard to do, but thankfully I can blog it now!

A Sort Of Throwback Thursday!

Hi!

This is probably the first Throwback Thursday that is quite literally a throwback. Not just a few weeks ago, not even a month ago, not even a few months ago, but a couple years back!

It was back in 2012! Wow!

Filled with a bit too much animation, a bit of confusing information, unpredictable words, and images, this presentation was done by Patosina, Briant, and myself. It was when we were studying about something and stuff, and had to make a presentation. That's all I remember. I remember having Briant come into our group, because before him it was just me and Patosina working on the presentation.

I can't really talk more about it, only at the fact that our choices of words (seriously) were really mind-boggling!

Riddle Me Wednesday! Second To Last One Of the Term!

Hi! This is another Riddle Me Wednesday post! Yes, I know I missed a week, but that was because I kept struggling to find out what the last riddle was on the vocaroo recording. Finally i did it, coincidentally on this Wednesday.

Last week's riddle was: I can be flipped and broken but I never move. I can be closed, and opened, and sometimes removed. I am sealed by hands. What am I?

The answer...a deal! Get it, because in the end, a deal is sealed by hands...

Now, for this week's riddle. If you are reading this right now, I really hope that you can take the time to try and solve this week's riddle. But if you can't, that's okay, this is only the first time I've tried this.

Iron Tamariki - Identifying Key Ideas (Throwback Thursday)

Hi. This is another Throwback Thursday. This is a task that was supposed to be posted last week, or even a while ago. Cue the harp music!

--------
WALT - identify key ideas of a text.

On Monday Room 10 read a text together. As a class. I had came into class late, and so, while being confused to what was happened, I read the text closest to me. "Willy, that's ours..." said the person whose paper was currently being used and read. "Oh, yeah, yeah..." I reply, "Just wait a moment...yeah, there you go..." I give it back, reading only half of it.

I did read all of it in the end, I just forgot that this post was lying around in the dashboard, so, what do you know, here I am typing this down.

Below's the task.

--------

I believe that in the text it showed parts of faith and self-belief between the main character (Mana) and his family. Since there was a big goal for Mana (the main character of the story) was to do the IronMÃori Tamariki, a lot of faith and self-belief There is a moment in the story where Mana asks his dad, “Far! Dad, so you think I can do this IronMÃori Tamariki?”, and his dad told him, “Son, I know you can.”. I also recall his mum telling him to not worry about the fact that she had actually come to watch him. The part where it says that part is here, "Mum! What are you doing here?" Mana said,
"Don't worry about me, speedy! Kia tere!" his mum said, adding a laugh.

At Least I Did One Task! | Novel Study Task: Composing a "Song"

Hi.

This "short" post is about the one Novel Study task I completed in a short amount of time. My reading group had read The Hobbit. The book. I couldn't believe that the trilogy (as in movies) were made from the one book! Wow! But, anyways, me and Mehi, friend, had done some other stuff out of class, which I can't really reveal for now in respect of the person in charge...me...me and Mehi had to read the whole book, a week after the group had started. And then ended.

That is what amazed me. They finished the book in probably less than a week. The reading was tough, since it was rushed, but at least I remembered what happened in the book!

I woould tell you the whole thing, but, thanks to this one task, I made a song. Well, it's a parody of a song, from Madonna! And great timing, as well!

Here's the lyrics below. The recording will come very soon...

Like A Hobbit

Bilbo was a boring old hobbit
Who loved his home and his carpet
He was just a small guy, who was trying to relax,
Or whatever you call it….

He was caught
By the door
Several dwarves
And a wizard too
And he would try to avoid
He would try to avoid

A new adventure!

Hey! Like a hobbit,
Living for the very first time!
Like a hobbit,
It was lucky, that he didn’t die..

Better keep on going with the story,
At last Bilbo wasn’t so boring!
He was a burglar, he stole stuff,
From the pockets of evil.

Riddles done, Gollum done.
He went on, to be with his friends,
And then there was a dragon,
And it was draggiiin
The story aloong….

Like a Hobbit (Hey!)
Something happened, and Smaug died!
Like a Hobbit,
There was a battle
Then at the end he was smoking??

Timeline of Tag Rugby (or Rippa Rugby)

Hi!

Finally I'm on a roll with the blogging. Lately I haven't blogged that much :(

But it's going to be worth it, just you wait!

For this drawing, me and my buddy Brandon, who frankly I haven't worked with much lately, except for Student Councillor stuff, but anyway! We did a timeline about the small history of "Tag Rugby", a sport that has those velcro-tag-thingies and you have to rip them off the person who is on the opposite side and has the ball. Of course, this was hard to complete. There was something that I was doing, and it got in the way of the research.
I'm just glad WE did it! Yes siree, we did it together. It wasn't like Brandon did 70% and I did 30%.

Uhh...

The drawing's below. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Food Technology - Week Seven


This is a presentation that I worked on with Cavhyon, McKoy, Charlie-Ray, and Mana. They're also in my Technology Group. We made Corn Beed and Noodles, with a bit of vegetables in the mix. It was nice! I couldn't think of what we would add more or take away, I mean, I ate the whole thing, and practically licked the plate..bowl...thing!

Enjoy the presentation!

And I did a lot of puns during the session as well. Note: Saying too much may spoil your chances of getting a laugh, hehe.

Father's Day...

"Ask mum."
"I don't know..."
"HUH?!"
"What's this?"
"Can I use the bathroom? Ugh, I mean sink..."

Words have never been more straightforward and subtle....

Happy Father's Day.

Riddle Me Wednesday!


Hi! Here's another vocaroo for this week's post! It was the fastest option to, really. If you want to give a guess below, wait until Tuesday then post your guess. It helps a lot, you might get mentioned, you might get it right, who knows...

And no cheating! Just a friendly note...enjoy this rushed but "punctual" recording for this week's Riddle Me Wednesday!

Tuakana Teina Day - Coner! A Game With Little Kiddies!


Yes! Finally! I've got something to blog about! And it was a stroke of luck too, since I did my speech a bit before. I walked to the court from the Old Tamaki Intermediate staffroom, and arrived on the court. It was a thrill seeing that our game was being played in real life! Such a thrill! Yes, indeed, then it ended.

We went inside and after looking at my attempted-neat-writing-not-neater-than-I-thought writing, we did this task. I worked on this presentation with my group, and since I'm rushing to get through this really quickly! I might as well say that you may need to read the presentation to get some detail on what happened.
