I need water. My throat is like sandpaper and it bleeds when I swallow. My vision gets hazzy and I hardly remember how long I’ve been here. One week, two weeks. I lost my water three days ago, and I realize I won’t last much longer. I start to stumble, and then my legs just collapse underneath me. I grasp my walking stick, and try to get up by putting my weight on it. I fall, hard on my arm, and feel the warm blood trickle down it. I see the vultures circling overhead, waiting for their next meal.
I’m thrilled! The Olympics are in my home town, and we can go to it! My favorite event, that I absolutely love to watch, is the half pipe. Seeing them fly down and then do all their flips and spins, it’s so exhilirating! Even better, my favorite Snowboarder, Jason Paul, is in second place! He’s so close to getting first place! This is his last run, and it’s for the win. The crowd goes wild and as he goes, he lands every jump he tries. “And the winner is, Jason Paul!” The noise is deafening as everybody goes crazy!
I need that key. I reach out my hand in the dark, only to pull it back with nothing in it. I somehow dropped the key to my house, and now I have know way of getting in. I have to get in soon or else he’ll get me, and then there won’t be anything else for me in this life. All the sudden I hear a car coming and know that it’s his. I reach out one last time, only to not be able to cause something else has caught my attention: Him, standing right in front of me.
Davey hated his job a lot. He stalked over to the taxi, and then got in. There was only one good thing about being a taxi driver where he was, and that was that he got to see the beautiful waterfalls! He liked to see the water pumel down and then crash heavily into the waters below. And something that made it even better on days like these, the sun shines on the water eminating a warm, yellow glow. If there was one thing to make a person excited after being yelled at for missing a turn, it’s the waterfalls!
Bob’s favorite past time is watching humans. The humans just celebrated an event called New Years. He was able watch it through his satellite which is out in space. When Bob was watching them, he saw somebody playing a game that was popular last year, which seemed odd because it’s not last year, he thought. Something else cought his eye that was going on at a space station. He thought it looked like they were aiming something at him, but he wasn’t sure. He saw light starting to form inside it, and then it shot out at him. Uh Oh.
If I could have one wish it would be to make there be no trash in the entire world. I know it would start to pile up even after the wish has happened, but it would be really good for the environment. I also feel like we would have more drive to keep the world clean because we would kind of have a fresh start. My wish was between no emmisions, or no trash, and I chose no trash. I feel like it would have more of an impact. It would also really help the ocean.
What’s your one wish?
A popular thing people like to do is travel. But what is the best way to travel for you and the environment?
I think for short distances it’s a bike. I know they can’t go very fast but they work well. Airplanes are the best for long distances. I feel like once they get up into the air, they don’t use that much. But the best would be a natural form of transportation. Such as a horse. I know they would get tired, but you don’t have to go fast.
What do you think are the best forms of transportation?
I go to school at McDowell Middle School, which is in the Logan Elm School District. Our first day of the new school year is August 20. So I’m in 7th grade.
Our school year is split up into four sections. Each section is nine weeks. So, at the end of every nine weeks we get our final grades. In the middle of every nine weeks we have an interim. That means that if you have any D’s or F’s, they send that out to you can do better at the end of the nine weeks.
We also have semesters. A semester is two nine weeks. That’s when we might change classes. For me, I have art for the first semester and technology the second. So far, I have nine weeks, which are then split up into semesters.
We get a certain number of breaks each year. During the first semester we have the Pumpkin Show break. That is just our area that does that. It’s a show/festival thing that happens every year. The next one we have is in the second nine weeks. That’s our Thanksgiving break. We get it for four days. That’s our main one for the second nine weeks. Our big break is for Christmas and New Years. That one is a couple weeks. And it also starts the second semester. For the third and fourth nine weeks, our main break is Easter. That’s pretty much all that we have for the second semester. And at the end of the fourth nine weeks we get a break for a couple of months, and then we start our new school year.
I hope you’ve liked learning about my school. And comment on my blog to let me know what your school is like.
