Camping

Last weekend I went camping with my friends, my brother, and my dad.

We went to a campsite about an hour away.  I brought my hammock there so I could sleep in it. We got there and all night we just hung out and went exploring. At night we had fajitas and cherry cobbler!! At the end of the night my friends and I talked in our hammocks till we fell asleep.

When we woke up we had egg sandwiches. After breakfast we played jump rope with a long rope so like 5 people could join in! Around 9 we packed up and went on a 5 mile hike!! I assumed it would be terrible but it turned out awesome!! I was the leader of around 15 people!! Plus… I was the youngest!!

After the camp out and I was home I thought to myself… I really wish I could go on another! Then I asked my Mom ” what are we doing next weekend?” And she said camping!! I remembered that I had a Girl Scout camp out the next weekend! I got really exited and couldn’t wait till the weekend!!

Now its Friday and I go tomorrow morning!! I cant wait!! Instead of hiking 5 miles we are only going to be hiking 2. But thats ok because I get to bring my hammock again to sleep in!!

Last weekend was AMAZING!! But this weekend will be…EVEN BETTER!!!

Tasty

I’m looking forward to making a meal for my family.

For the last month or so, I have been watching YouTube videos by Tasty. Tasty is a YouTube channel that was produced by buzzfeed.

I love Tasty!! I like it because normally every time I want to watch a cooking video I search the dish and I look at videos. Every time though  each video is around 15 minutes!! I cannot do that. Then… one of my friends showed me Tasty after we did the sheep heart dissection in science class. Our stomachs started hurting because of the smell so we went into the hallway and started watching their videos.

During Spring break, I’m going to be making a meal for my family from tasty. I’m really looking forward to it because I haven’t been able to cook a lot lately. I’ve been watching their videos nonstop to see what dinner I should make. Everything I watch I love so its going to be very difficult, but it helps a little because not everything I like my family likes. I love seafood but both of my brothers hate it, or I love French toast but both of my brothers hate it.

I’m definitely looking forward to making a special meal for my family. If you have any suggestions on what I should make comment!! I got to go… I have to do homework *cough *cough Tasty.

Utah: part 2

I’m in Utah!!!

The first day we got up early and went skiing!! I was skiing all day untill we had to come in to eat dinner.

My dad and I like skiing together every year so the next day, my dad showed me some really good slopes! They had 2 new ski lifts so we had to go try them out and see if it was worth it!! They turned out to be great! The slopes were easy so we could ski super fast down the mountain and race!

My friend Sarah came with me and my brother and cousin the next day to go up to the main lodge to play basketball! I was on a team with my brother, cousin, and another girl. We crushed it!! My brother, Kevin was the one who threw the ball in the hoop. I was the one who got it out of the players hands. And lastly, my cousin was the one who dribbled to the back of the court.

On our third day I didn’t ski in the morning because my family went to drop of my oldest brother to the airport because he couldn’t miss a lot of school. So that meant I was in the condo…alone!! I watching tv all day untill I went with Sarah to ski at night. We went on the lift, and as we got closer and closer… we got really exited!! We went up and down about 8 times with of course a hot chocolate break!! We were on our 9th run and we were at the top when the lights turned off!! We couldn’t see a thing!!! We got down, but as we got closer to the bottom, the lights turn off down their too!! We screamed!!! But we survived!!

On our last full day… my dad and I went to the new lifts in the afternoon. We went up to the highest lift — that took us 3 lifts to get up to— and started to go down. We were at the first lift when one of the workers told us that they were shutting down the lifts because a giant wind/snow storm was coming. He told us that we were the last people on the mountain!! We went up the lift and I stared to get scared. A giant gust of wind blew and made our skis lift. We went down another slope and I skied the fastest I could because all I wanted to do was get down. We went on the 2nd lift and they told us to come inside the operator room because the wind was up to 70 mph!! A snow cat came and picked us up. (its a giant snow mobile that can carry a lot of people) We were saved!! After that my mom came and picked us up.

Today!! Right now I’m sitting in a airport chair typing this!! Our flight isn’t untill 8:00 but we had to come at 3:00 because my cousins flight is at 5:00. That means I’m not going to get home till 1:00 in the morning and tomorrow morning I’m going to school!! I still have homework to do for math but not a ton so I’m doing all that on the plane!!

It’s only 6:30 here but 7:30 in Austin!! I’m going to go watch a movie before I have to start my homework!! I’m counting the months untill next year when I get to ski again!!

 

Utah

In 7 short days, I’ll be getting on a plane going to Salt Lake City!!

I go to Salt Lake City Utah every year with my family! I’ve been to almost every where in Europe: but my favorite place in the whole world is Utah.

I love the winter…and in Utah there’s always a fresh layer of white powdery snow!! Normally, when we get there we drive into the city and stop and this place called The Pie! They don’t actually serve pie there: they serve pizza!! They make there pizzas really big!! My cousin Daniel, my grandma and grandma, and some of my mom and dads friends families come with us every year, so we normally get one pizza to feed all of us — so that means its a pretty big pizza!– we always love going there when we come.

After the pie, when we are all really stuffed full of pizza… we get back in the rental car and drive farther into the city. My dad and my grandpa love stopping at a store and grabbing “adult sodas” before going to the condo. We also stop at the grocery store and get food for the week because we will be going in the mountains and it takes a while to get back down.

Later after the shopping… we are all finally ready to start driving it where we stay. It takes about an hour to get up the mountain, so we make sure we bring something to entertain us!! My dad always turns on the radio, but as we get farther up it starts getting staticky. We can always feel when the air starts getting thin when our ears start popping and feeling weird.

At last, we reach the condo. We check in in a different building that has a pool, hot tub, basketball, games, and food. After we have our keys we get back into the car one last time, and drive a little farther up the rode. Soon, we get to the condo. It looks like a big log cabin, we walk in, and we see 4 doors. Two upstairs and two downstairs. My grandparents, my cousin, and brother get one downstairs, my parents, my oldest brother, me and my friend Sarah get one upstairs and. Then my parents friends get another one upstairs.

Thats it!! We do that every year!! We do most of our time snow skiing and hanging out in the other building with games. I can’t wait untill those 7 days pass!!

Homework

I think homework takes up to much time. (Some of this is fiction)

Homework was started long ago in a land that students wanted more work so, the teacher gave them a lot of work to do at home.

Now, were here in the 20th century, and everyone HATES homework. Back then the teacher gave them extra work just because they didn’t have anything better to do, but now we have a lot of things to do. Here are a few examples…

First, Sports. Everybody loves sports, there’s so many different kinds of sports like soccer, football, tennis, cheerleading, swimming, dance, softball, golf and I could go on and on about sports! Everyone would rather be doing literally nothing than doing their math, science, history, Spanish, English, ANYTHING but boring terrible homework.

Next, Tutoring. We all sometimes get a bad grade on a test, quiz, learning check just some bad grade. Well I think a lot of us get help from people. It can be from brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, friends, parents, cousins anyone but that takes time. Yo might be only be working on 1 subject, but while your trying to focus and get better in science, your math binder is staring into your sole telling you that you have homework. Well… that’s when you stop focusing and you feel guilty but you weren’t doing anything bad, you were getting help with another class.

Lastly, What does it do?? You need to study I know that but doing homework isn’t the same thing as studying!! All you need to do is just look over your notes or do you quizlet.

Fingers crossed that soon there will be a new person that want to ban homework!!

Birthdays

Theres a lot of stuff that happens at this time of the year. Birthdays, holidays, breaks, everything happens… but it can also be stressful too. These 2 weeks are going to be a full ride! Get ready to party!!

My oldest brother Cole is turning 17 on February 4! I think I’m more exited than he is!! He has his drivers license and my dad gave him his car! He’s been Driving me around for a while. He’s a really good driver! I like him driving me a lot because he turns the radio on, rolls down the window, and we talk about random things!!

For his birthday, he really wants an chocolate ice cream cake! Normally for my birthday, I’m the only one who gets one! But then my other brother got one and now Cole! Every year we get our cakes at Amy’s ice cream shop! But this year for Coles birthday I’m making him one! I know it’s going to be hard… but I’ve never made one but I know it’s going to be delicious!!

I have to get everything ready before his birthday (the 4th) the 3rd. I have another birthday party for one of my friends on his real birthday. It might be tough but I’ll just stay up all night till it gets done!! It’s going to be a surprise, my mom said to make the cake on his birthday… but it takes a while to make so he will totally know so I’m not going to do that!

I hope he doesn’t know!! I hope your all not as stressed out as me and have a great winter season!! Wish me luck!!

Winter Break

I loved winter break.

For Christmas I got a fitbit from my mom and dad and I also go alot of dance things so I can stretch more. I loved the Polaroid camera I got, I’ve always wanted one!

I basically just sat around my house finishing Gossip Girl (The show that I’m addictive to!) and started a show called 90210. I love watching dramatic tv shows, I don’t know why! I think it’s because I like seeing how it all plays out.

After Christmas I went to California with the Westlake high school band. They were going to be marching in the rose parade in Pasadena , they had to walk 5 miles in full uniform and there big instrument!

We got to go to Disneyland one day and I’ve been their once there before and it was awesome! It was awesome the second time too!!

One of my best friends came with her family as well and we got to see her sometimes. We went to Disney together on New Years eve and we had such a good time!!

Overall, I had such a good time over the break! But to be honest I was not happy to be going back to school especially since we got back and almost 1:00 o’clock in the morning! And then going to school for 8 hours! Anyway now I’m just waiting for summer!!

Dance!!

I love to Dance.

I do all kinds of dance like jazz, ballet, hip hop, lyrical, and contemporary.

I have been dancing since I was 2 years old. I eat, sleep and breath dance. If I have any injuries, its from dancing!!

I don’t want to be a professional dancer but I really want to do it in high school!! When I get to Westlake I’m going to try out for highline! My dad and I have been talking about it for a long time! We can’t wait till he can be out on the field with me for the daddy daughter dance!!

I dance at Synergy Dance Company. I love it there I have so many amazing friends there and great teachers!!

When I’m Dancing, I don’t think about what I’m having for dinner!! I the only thing I think about is tight core, pointing toes, and never stop squeezing your body!!

For me when I dance, it feels like I’m in a fairy tale just dancing like a sugar plum fairy!

I feel like I’m in a dream praying I will never wake up, but in this case never have the music stop.

I love to dance it gives me happiness!!

Find something you like and keep doing it!!

I hope you liked this post!!

 

Dogs

 

I wrote this poem about my dogs I have! I Hope you enjoy it.

Dogs are a girl’s best friend
They love bones
They smile big
They run all day
Their fur soft but rough
Teeth sharp but dull
Their Eyes Amber but dark colored
As they run you can see their fat jump up and down
They play with their toys even when sad
They eat everyone’s food but we don’t mind
They bark at strangers when they find them suspicious

They love us no matter what
Dogs are a girl’s best friend
They cuddle when you’re sad
They cuddle when your happy
They’ll listen when you need to talk
They like being your doctors to give you the Medicine you to
laugh again
They play with you all day
Their smile sweet but dangerous
Their appetite big but picky
Dogs are a girl’s best friend
They slobber all over you when they’re happy
They can hear you from a mile away
Their with you when sad and happy
Their eyes twinkling with happiness
Their mouths dripping of water as they slurp it down
Dogs are a girl’s best friend
And how you know their time for bed,
When their eyelids can’t seem to open
And their mouths seem to close
You know it’s time for you to sleep and you crawl into bed,
they will jump up
And down
And never forget
To lick goodnight.
 

 

Author’s note: I was inspired to write about dogs because I have 2 dogs at home that I love very much and I recently lost one that I loved so much we got her when I was born. She was very close to be so I decided to write about her. I wanted to share my love for my amazing dogs. I wanted to show my readers that whatever pet it is… you can love it as much as I love my dogs.
