The End of the Holidays

Ah, here we go again, the end of the holidays, with only 19 hours left until I leave the house to go to school for the first term of 2014. It has been good, not spectacular, since I did a lot of events, like visit my Grandma, who's 84, had my sister's birthday, some stuff happened, and many more.

The posts that start with "Holiday Post #..." are obviously made in the holidays, where some other posts are normal titles, since the holidays were and are nearly over. Luckily, I get to see my friends again, though, some of them say they are going to move to another country, many say they're going to Australia.

Also, the weather for Tuesday 28, January says it's going to be sunny! Yay! So good for a first day of school.

Opposite Day

Today was Opposite Day! It is a fictional holiday as we all know, is celebrated on January 25th, where you act the opposite of how you are on a normal day, and I, don't do much on any kind of day. I did all the things I wouldn't really do, or really like, on a sunny Saturday, like...

Wash the dishes countless times!Hold a fish, and then find out it has teeth, and get bitten, though it's dead.Find out Dad won the Cricket tournament, but lose the other two tournamentsHaving Mum and Abbie stay home instead of go with Dad, and do all the chores Mum does to keep the house cleanKeep the house cleanTurn the TV off for once, during the dayTalk about my Uncle's Party, in 3 PARTSClean the garage!
Honestly, I wouldn't clean the garage, with its rubbish, smelly shoes, rotten fruits, old stuff, suitcases, more rubbish, and mirrors. I also felt a really great feeling. So great, it made me do all this, which I wouldn't want/like to do, hear, see, and feel.

The Lost Blogpost: Part Three: My Uncle's Gone

Here's the last part of the lost blogpost I haven't mentioned about for the past 7 months. I was at the part where I was sleeping, that's right...

I was sleeping just after the party. Few hours later, almost at 5AM, I start to get a blocked nose. I didn't know why, but I had to stop it. I always had a fear of having blocked noses during sleep, because then you'd have trouble while breathing through your nose. My vision was hazy when I stepped out of bed and walked across the hallway, but I could see one thing. Light. 

The light from the television. "Who watches TV at this time of night?" I thought. "Junior.", I guess. I tip-toed down my way through, but since my vision was hazy, I miss a step, causing me to fall, but luckily I caught the rail at the side of the stairs. Finally, I reach downstairs. I look at my left. Wierd. It's not Junior. It was just Leneh and her friends in the living room. I couldn't tell if they were looking at me or n…

The Lost Blogpost: Part Two: My Uncle's Interconnected Events

Here's part two of the lost blogpost I forgot to blog about during the holidays. This part will tell the parts of each family member. Now where was I... Oh, yes, the silence... This story starts with me, obviously.

Me: Blue
Mum: Orange
Dad: Red
Martin: Green
Abbie: Purple

Setting: At home, the silence ends, with the noise reaching high. Dad sits down. Mum is coming back home, I sit down as well to eat. Abbie stares at Junior's friend and the clock shows 22:13. Martin's head pops out. 22:14. I daydream about having some cake. 22:15. I look at the chips and a dip. 22:15:45. I think about it. 22:15:50. I haven't had a chip in a dip ever since...ever. 22:15:55. I take the chip and dip and then...

22:15:59
Wow!

Willy (me)  22:16 - 22:29 PM

The Lost Blogpost: Part One: My Uncle's Party

Today I was thinking what I could blog about, and then a little memory came up, and it was about my uncle's, or in this case, Junior's birthday, though when we partied on April 28th, his actual birthday was on the 25th, which was also Anzac Day, that one of the reasons why to party on a Saturday. Anyway, it all started on a very cloudy day...

It was Saturday, 28th of April, 2013. The sun was covered, the grass was almost wet by the morning rain, and someone had an idea of having a party, I just didn't know because it was one of Junior's friends. 

My Dad's friends came in to put up a gazebo, though I kept on calling it a "tent". It turned out big. Abbie kept running in and out. After a few minutes, Junior's girlfriend came with her friends to do the rest, like the food, the tables, the balloons, the candles, and the guests. 

Wow, who ever knew three women, and plus some other people (Mum, Dad, Dad's friends) would plan something and build it in one da…

Tournament Day....for my Dad

Dear Blog,

Today was the day where my dad would go for a "Tournament". He had always done ever since I could remember, though Mum would usually come, but this time, she stayed. Dad practised with me two days before, and he was good, where as I, kept losing. He went off early in the morning with my Uncle Junior, and he was gone ever since.

A few hours later, my dad's friend came, explaining to me that he caught fish and wants to give it to him. Here's the weird part that went through my mind, how could I understand him when he's speaking Samoan? Easy. Imagine this:

A friend of your father comes up to your door, speaking a language, and you don't know what they're saying, but, they are holding a chilly bin with fish in it, and speaking in the tone of a question. Get it?

I got the 2 fish and placed it in a plastic, and when no one was around, I played with one of them, trying to make it talk, and then I realised it had TEETH! I know, everyone knows fish have …

My sister got a bike. If you take a look closer,
Now look at my bike....
At least she can learn at an early age, while as for me...I've now got started, again.

A Visit to Grandma...

Image
Today, my family went to visit my Grandma (or, my dad's mum). She's 84, and it's still weird that she doesn't have that much grey hair.

Okay, last time, on New Years, she was already booked for something else, but this time, we all knew it was going to be good. It all started with one wake up call. I had a glob of toothpaste on my forehead, and thank goodness that was off.

After showering, and putting on my good clothes, we went off, zooming through the roads and motorways. It seemed like an hour before we came there. Next, we went inside, and I said to my sister before she ran of the driveway, "Abbie, get off there, a car will come. You never know.". I thought I was joking, until right after saying that, a car actually came! Luckily we went inside on time. The door was open, we went through, the other door that leads you to the room where the senior citizens were at was open, and we went through.

We walked through the same way we would walk to my Grandma…

Holiday Post #13: Holi

Image
This is the weirdest thing that has happened to me on Sumdog, yet...


At the end of playing Holi, the scores were amazing! 62, 63, and 64! I came second, and that was because I haven't played it in a while. I was practicing my subtraction facts.
