2: Hope For The Future
4: April 29th 2011 Dear diary, It has been a great day, today we received our next music assignment where the whole class will be doing a dance and will get marked on. I wonder if I will get a good mark or not, I hope so! Anyway this afternoon The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Midelton is on. This is so exciting because I am living in history!
5: May 4th 2011 Dear diary, Today in English class we were having a discussion on the nuclear bombing in Japan. Which made me wonder what if a nuclear war would ever occur again and I was one of the few survivors on Earth, what would I do? Well I think I would try to plant a vegetable patch, build shelters for a place to stay and have hope for the future to come. Anyway I hope this will never happen.
8: May 9th 2011 | Dear diary, Today has been such a great day. It was the first day of camp at Stanwell Tops. We climbed up the high ropes and we also did another activity called survivor. Participating in these two activities has made more confident and persistent in the things I do. Anyway the day has been good, except when the rain had come it was absolutely freezing. But we still enjoyed ourselves throughout the day by finding many adventures. I wonder if it will be a nicer day tomorrow?
9: May 10th 2011 | Dear diary, Today was the final day of camp and we only had one activity which was the giant swing. This was so much fun because where we were swinging was near the edge of the cliff. Anyway this day was such a nicer day as it was so sunny. However before I knew it we had to go home.But I have discovered so many adventures and memories I will keep for a long time.
10: April Showers Bring May Flowers
11: "When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened"
12: May 16th 2011 Dear diary, Today was a pretty good day at school as I received my Visual Art results for my Peace poster and I got 28/30. I'm so happy I finally got a high score in my school work. Anyway I wonder what I will get for my next results?
13: May 17th 2011 Dear diary, It was such a great day today, because we were cooking in our groups for tech and thank goodness I was with my friends. Anyway today we did two coarses, So Ruby and I made Ricotta Gnocchi with tomato and eggplant sauce, whilst Laura and Aliena made a rich chocolate torte. It tasted magnificent.
14: "be like the flower, turn your face to the sun." - Kahlil Gibran | It's a beautiful day, don't let it get away. | 'I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and love today'
16: May 19th 2011 Dear diary, Today was Thursday and yep you guessed it, today we had to play netball. We played against St Leo's High School and of coarse we lost again, but it wasn't as bad as last week because this time there was only 10 points difference. Anyway I'm sure we all gave it our best and hopefully we will do better next week and work together as a team, if we ever have a training session any time soon.
17: May 20th 2011 Dear diary, Today in English class we were discussing the book Z For Zachariah. In this book there are only two main characters as they are the only people left in the valley. Anyway we had to think about who would be the best equipped survivor, Mr Loomis or Ann Burden? Well Ann is very persistent and domesticated whilst Mr Loomis is knowlegeable and experienced. But I think Ann would be the best survivor as she knows how to supply herself with food and water. Where as Mr Loomis has already been tramatised and is very controlling and agressive.
18: It's a beautiful day, don't let it get away. | 'Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot educate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. We have seen the future, and the future is ours'
19: "Blossom by blossom the spring begins"
20: May 25th 2011 Dear diary, Nothing too dramatic happened at school today except I had double maths and then came home, went to dancing and got harassed by my dancing teacher. Ok, ok it wasn't as bad as it sounds but she always picks on me for something I may or may not have done or couldn't do because I'm not that flexible. Anyway I'd rather know if I'm doing something wrong than getting a bad grade for it!
21: Lavenders are purple Tall and blue Creating such a wonderful view Growing tall in spring What a wonderful thing... Blooming in the light, the flowers so tight Blowing in the breeze Making you sneeze Used for all sorts of lotions and potions Beautiful fragrances just made for a Queen Smelling just right, making every girls dream Crushing and crunching To make a beautiful display Of pot-pourri
