End of Year Reflection – Letter to my future self

Key:

” = Future self

Hi.

“Who are you?”

I’m you but stronger younger.

“Oh-“

It sucks.

“Ok..?”

ANYWAY.

I’m in year 5 at MPPS in 2017.

Gosh, it sounds really lame seeing that I have 7 more years of school left.

“Ugh gross.”

I know.

Now, since we all know that you have a very bad memory because you forget everything in the span of 5 seconds.

“Rude.”

Shhh, I’m talking child. Anyway, since you have a bad memory I’m going to tell you everything that happened in 2017!!!

TERM 1:

At camp cape bridgewater, we did so many activities!

“like what?”

  • Snorkling
  • Geo catching
  • Star gazing
  • Surfing
  • Sand boarding
  • Seal tours
  • Caving
  • Abseiling

And who could forget the one massive mountain hill that we had to climb at the start of camp.

“I wish I could.”

Same here, future self.

THEY ALSO LIED TO US ABOUT THE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS THAT WERE ACTUALLY RAISINS!!!!!!!! 😠😠😠

“THEY DID WHAT?”

TERM 2:

In term 2 we did a project on adaptations, I worked with Phoebe on spinifex grass.

“Sounds boring.”

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF SPINIFEX GRASS!!!

“ok ok jeez.”

Anywho, I learnt that spinifex grass curls its leaves to keep the water from getting out of it’s system.

“Anything else?”

I think that’s the only thing I remember.

TERM 3:

In term 3 we did debates.

“Ugh.”

I judged 2 times and did 2 debates, most of the time the negative team won.

“Did you enj-“

N o .

TERM 4: 

And finally, term 4!

“What exciting stuff did we do this term?

CODING!!! I love coding! It’s so fun!!!

“What did you do with coding?”

Well, we’re doing this project where you have to throw something in a bin and then you get 10 points!

“Sounds cool, what’s it supposed to help?”

To get kids to throw their compost in the compost bin!

“Cool! I remember doing that.”

Anywho, I think that’s enough talking for now! Bye!

“See you later!”

.

“Creep”

 

100WC- But where would I hide it all?

I didn’t like the ‘popular’ girls bullying me about how horrid my life is. Even though they know it’s not as bad as they say.

My friend Jessie told me to hide everything, even my emotions towards them; because if I express my anger at them, they would bully me even more.

But where would I hide it all? You can’t exactly shove your emotions in a box then keep them in a cupboard, right? I guess they shouldn’t bully me, but if I talk back to them they’re just gonna say a snappy reply and leave.

It’s kinda sad…

Bendy and the Ink Machine

The sketches come to life,

The light, hazy brown is the only colour there, shadowed by black ink.

The noises might drive me insane, they are here. The demon and angel are here.

The thick ink brings them to life.

Joey what have you done?

I fear that they are after me, only me.

I’m so terrified.

The ink demon and angel are after me, only me, the ink demon and angel are here…

Joey.

What

have

you

done

?

5 things about the grass

The grass doesn’t mind it’s shiny emerald dress.

It’s waiting for something – it doesn’t know what.

The grass doesn’t like others, but it’s forced to go outside.

It doesn’t like it’s food, so it gets thinner by the hour.

It is small and cheeky, a midget you might say.

The Ink

The ink leaks through the door.

It goes right through the wall.

I think the time has come,

for me to run.

The angel doesn’t like him,

they don’t like each other.

Joey, what have you done?

The ink will fall

follow him everywhere.

It infests this place.

every corner,

everywhere.

100WC – Gumboots

Have you ever wanted a better, non-sponge like pair of shoes to walk in when it rains?

Well now you can! Get your new non-sponge like gumboots today! At the reverse-sponge company we aim to get your feet into the most comfortable shoes in the world! We call these special gumboots “Unspongeboots!” These boots will practically make you feel like you’re not on in water but you are in water!

“🌟 do not buy, terrible gumboots.” – Some random guy who wore the wrong boots.

“These boots do not deserve a rating, they will break once you touch them!” -Some rich and famous guy probably.

100WC: Describe your most treasured item without actually giving what it is away.

It’s something small, yet it holds many ideas in it.

It can create on anything, even if it’s just in your imagination.

Sure, using it can be hard at first, but it still can create anything you want.

If it makes something someone else likes, they might get interested, and continue to like the ideas.

It may not create anything beautiful at first, but practice will help.

First it sketches, then makes the lineart, the it colours.

If you want to take it a step further, it will shade.

People do this, with it, for a job.

It has a rubber at the end, and it has lead inside of it.

100WC

The two itty-bitty scientists stood on the concrete pathway in a shady, yet sunny abandoned street.

Jeremey was getting ready to go into the ginormous glass container filled to the brim with sweet and delicious lollies. Kiku was just bursting to see what was going to happen to the container when the shock-breaker-60000 blasted.

After Jeremy was in the container, Kiku started to count down, “3…. 2…. 1….” She started to power up the shock-breaker-60000, as it slowly heated up, the glass started to shake. Some lollies tipped over the sides. As soon as it was at full power, Kiku pushed the button and BOOM! The glass and machine broke into halves…
