Going Back to 2013...

Today At School - Tuesday 23rd May

I was surprised to see that it was cold again this morning. For a moment I thought Monday started again and I was given a second chance to experience the cold frost going through Auckland again. Dad dropped me off to school and I walked to the spot I got to in the morning, and this time, there were these men working on the football nets. I walked back and forth before coming across Connor (mentioned him in an early TIL post), and we talked a bit about some stuff that happened yesterday, and then something about the football posts (or soccer posts), and then began this joke that parodies guys who belittle their younger brothers when at school.

In History, the class went over some more stuff relating to our new assignment related to the 1981 Springbok Tour. I was glad, I learned a bit about this last year. The whole issue was that South Africa’s rugby team the Springboks were coming over and New Zealand was divided after having an apartheid country come over. Mr Prentice then talked abo…

Today At School - Monday 22nd May

I was wondering why it felt colder than usual when I woke up early this morning.

Information Report about Plants (from 2012)

Yet another post in which I never posted from 2012. Here's a basic information report about plants...

GBW Update: Fake News

'I AM NOT GIVING UP' Odrastan Chancellor Stanley blasts rumours of surrender
May 19th

Odrastan President has released a statement of anger towards the Ustwynsian Prime Minister Willy, after a story published by the Ustwynsian Press regarding rumours of surrender by Odrastan surfaced. Below is the full statement (okay, since this is all fiction, the comment this post refers to has been altered to suit this blog series) given by the Odrastan leader:

"I am not giving up. I am still striving to win this war, even though I am a bit low on ammo and the requirements for war and such, that does not mean that I will give in. The reason why I am not giving up to Patosina and Willy, is because Jarryd Hayne also never gives up and he inspired me to never give up and strive for my goals. No more comment."

The Ustwynsian Prime Minister hasn't released a comment on this new update just yet.

Same goes for the Apolsna Premier, Patosina.

GBW Coverage: Is It True?

ODRASTAN SURRENDERING?
-May 19th

It's not official, but the Ustwynsian Press believe that the leader of Odrastan has surrendered amidst the violent Blogging War that begun on May 1st. Reports suggest that lack of defense and offense military may be the cause behind the white flag waving of Stanley.

Meanwhile, Ustwynsian Prime Minister Willy is in a struggle with Apolsna Premier Patosina, who was left fuming after the lack of support regarding the beneficial option to force trading sanctions on Odrastan after the attack on Ustwynsia on April 18th.

On May 1st, the Apolsna capital was strike by a missile, sparking the whole conundrum.

No statement has been given by any other newspaper companies regarding the matter of false news, but it's come to knowledge that Willy has been informed of this rumour.

Today At School - Friday 19th May

First off, again, before I get to the actual post, I’m also participating in the Whanau Art Competition. My whanau is Ngata, if you didn’t know already. It’s quite different this year, the art competition. Last year it was a pavement art competition, where each whanau would use chalk to illustrate their whanau values and artistic ability.

So the day started out good, I spent some time thinking about some stuff at my usual spot for thinking whenever I come to school early. Sometimes I think, and sometimes, like this time, I just gaze up at the sky and watch the clouds go by as the sun slowly rises to shine that middle-of-the-morning light. At 8:02 am I walked off and headed for History class.

The class starts at 8:30 am but I get there early to avoid traffic during the 8:00am-8:30 am period.

To cut it short, History went well. Throughout the day, throughout the periods (Music, Social Studies) it went well, there was work done here and there, and I had my weekly guitar lesson. We’re cur…

Today At School - Thursday 18th May

Forgot to mention in yesterday’s post - but I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before - I’m learning guitar as part of taking Music as one of my options.
