Hello, sorry for now posting in forever. I’ve honesty completely forgot about my Blog because I’ve been wrapped up with friends and school and stuff. Anyways, today is Halloween and I’m Trick or Treating with my best friend Malachai. Malachai is the best (later on he’s paying me 2 dollars for saying that) and he really has made a difference in my life. Hopefully we’ll get tons of candy tonight. Wish us luck! Grade 8 has been kind of hard so far but it’s been way easier then Grade 7. Grade 7 was challenging because I didn’t always get along with my teacher, but so far, my teacher Ms. Ferrier is more strict but she’s a lot nicer and we don’t get into arguments like me and Mrs. Ferrier used to. Anyways, I’m going to eat some pizza with my best friend. Peace out.
I’ve made it through my second year at my school. This year proved difficult by (somehow) I managed to survive through it. I’m going into grade eight. Even though this year was challenging I’ve made some great new friends, Malachai and Kayla (Please don’t kill me for using your names lol). I have some other great friends too but these two are extra cool. I guess I could go on to talk about what they’re like but honestly it would probably be more interesting to get into what i’ll be doing this summer and sort of skip the long, boring summarization.
There are a few bigger trips for my summer that have been planned. The biggest being a trip to British Columbia to visit my Dad (Trevor) and my relatives. I’m not going to get to into detail about that trip because I’m assuming I’ll be writing a separate post about everything I did once i’ve gone there.
Another big trip is still being planned (I’m pretty sure). I might be going to Quebec again, again, again, again, ok you get it I’ve been there a lot. Again I’ll probably have another post on that too.
There are going to be other trips as well (Including a camping trip) but the only one that I’ve been on so far is (drumroll please) Niagara Falls. My lovely grandparents took me there (shoutout to Nana and Grandpa)! Niagara Falls was amazing, but I must admit, it was not what I was expecting. For about half the trip when we were outside if I were to stick my arms out than I would hit another tourist’s head.
There were tons of great things to do there. If I were to list them all than I would be here all day writing. I’m just going to list a few of the highlights.
- The Butterfly Conservatory, It was filled with butterflies (big surprise am I right?) and all the colours were really neat.
- The Rain Forrest Cafe, It was amazing, there were these animatronic gorillas and stuff and honestly they kinda freaked me out. It was a great experience.
- Rippley’s Believe it or not Museum, There was tons of whacky stuff there. Specifically a spinning room popped out at me, kind of literally.
- The Falls, this was the main reason we went there. They were amazing.
I think it’s safe to say, there wasn’t a moment on that trip where I was even a little underwhelmed. It was great.
In my last post about Frizzles I started talking about his best friend Bagheera. About 10 minutes before writing this I finally managed to snap a picture of him!
I’ve been trying to get a picture of him for ages! Here’s a little bit about Bagheera and the way he acts. About a year ago I saw him on a walk I was taking. He looked pretty hungry so I ran home and with permission grabbed a handful of cat treats. When I got back he was still just sitting there in the grass. I gave them to him and he almost immediately started purring. I sat there petting him for about half an hour until I left to go home. About 2 months after a neighbourhood cat named Clover who also had no home came to our deck. We fed her some food because she looked like she was starving. After we fed her she kept coming back so we kept feeding her. After a while the other kitties in the neighbourhood caught on to how she was eating so well. So Domino, Scarface and Bagheera started coming and eating the food too. Domino and Scarface still appear often but our main visitors are Clover and Bagheera. Frizzles loves to go outside. Frizzles doesn’t get along with the other kitties too, too well but for some reason him and Bagheera got along right away. So I guess they’re best friends now. They don’t exactly play or anything but they do hang out together and lay down in the grass together. SO that’s the story of Frizz’s best friend Bagheera
As you may know in my family we own two cats, Frizzles and Lucius. It isn’t hard to decide which one is more interesting, playful, friendly and adventurous. Lucius is more of a big lump who sleeps all day. The last post I wrote about Frizz was almost a year ago I’m pretty sure an he’s gotten up to way more than that by now.
About a year ago we got Frizzles a leash. We sometimes take him for “walks” which is mostly just him wondering around and whoever is taking him following around. Frizzles has got to be the most spoiled cat I know. Frizzle’s best friend is a neighbourhood cat named Bugera. Bugera is a black cat that has no home. My family leaves out food for him every day and sometimes we take him inside. When Frizzles wants to go outside, he makes sure we know it. He meows and meows and meows and meows untill we have no choice but to bring him outside unless we all want headaches. Frizzles favourite treat is Temptations. Whenever he hears a bag being shaken or his treat jar being opened he comes bolting across the house to get them. I’m sure I’ll be writing more of Frizzles adventures as they never seem to end.
This Easter I went to Quebec with my brother, nana and grandpa. I had a really fun time there so I thought I would write about it. We went there for Easter to see the Bowker’s place up at the farm. We spent 2 full days there and 2 days just driving. Driving there and back took about 17 hours total. My Grandma Bowker made us tons for great food and I think we all stuffed ourselves everyday. We set up the trampoline and for the first full day there we were probably on it a quarter of the day. We also ate out at a French restaurant. I could actually read and understand about half the foods on the menus because I pay attention in French class at school! The second full day there (Easter) it was raining though. It was definitely an indoor day. I hung out with Josh and played Minecraft with him and Emery for a few hours. On the last day we took pictures before we left.
The way back way as short as we could make it. I really did miss home. Once I got back though I began to miss Grandma’s homemade bread right away!
Seventh grade is a big step up from grade six. It was especially difficult adjusting to the new grade because I now have a locker, am on a new floor in the school and only know half the people in my class. As some people may know, last year was my first year at a new school, Prince of Wales, so I really only knew the people from my class last year. Eventually I figured out who my new friend group was going to be, and I settled in to the new class. My teacher is Mrs. Taitinger. She is very strict (She probably seems more strict then she really is because my last teacher was super gentle) and sometimes very nice. Most of my classmates I can describe in one work, ‘Immature’. I feel like Grade Seven is the year where half the class goes absolutely insane and the other half matures even more. I’d like to think i’m on the maturing side. The main problem for me right now is that my best friend Terrence is still at a different school. We still see each other just not very often. While i’m writing about Terrence I should probably point out Fantamon is pretty much a one-man operation now. He has stopped making them but I haven’t given up for those of you who were wondering. Anyways, I should probably wrap up this post. Thanks for reading!
