my blog




As Seventh grade progressed, my writing has improved as you can see above. At the beginning of the year I was writing with no paragraphs, lots of punctuation mistakes, and missing thoughts from posts, but now I have improved with multi-paragraphing, better punctuation, and better rounded posts. I used to write as long as this paragraph is but, I now write longer posts that make more sense.

Overall blogging has improved my writing immensely but, it has also been fun to do.


Seventh Grade

Seventh Grade, where you are not the little man on campus but not the big one either, you are right in the middle of the pack. The homework is way to much, the schoolwork is too much also, and you never have anything to do but study when you get home from school. Seventh grade is hard!

When I first arrived in August I expected everything to increase in difficulty and for me to make new friends, both of which happened to me. Last year I had gotten nothing but A’s but this year I have all A’s and a B in one class and now I have to work much harder to earn my grades. I also have met some people I didn’t know very well last year and it turns out we have a lot in common. I pictured everything to be harder and make new friends but I didn’t know it would turn out like this.

By October I had figured out how this year was going to be and, the only thing I could do is just suck it up and finish the year. Most of what I predicted has going to happen did happen but on a more extreme scale. Not all was bad though I did have lots of fun on the weekends with my friends and, some of the classes I had were actually pretty fun. I really like Spanish, just something about learning a whole new language made all of the work easier. Seventh grade was harder than I thought.

I learned a lot this school year, I learned…
– How to write expository writing on English.
– How to stay in shape in athletics.
– How to speak a new language in Spanish.
– Which lunch line is shorter (the one close to science hall).
– Finally I learned that Seventh grade is not like Sixth.

Of all of the bad things I had this year, the good experiences made it bearable to go by… I even kind of liked school this year.



Without friends what would the world be? Friends keep us entertained when we are lonely, and when we are sad they keep us happy. You care for friends and friends care for you, they make you laugh and you make them laugh. True friends are what brings this world together.
My first friend, he was neighbors with me and the first person I knew when I moved to Texas from California. We would play football in his front yard with his younger brother. He would come to my house and I would come to his house. When we first met he couldn’t remember my name so he would call me Scooby-Doo shoes (because I wore Scooby-Doo shoes then). We have so many memories together that I can’t list them all. We went to Elementary School together and still go to Middle School together. I will always remember my first friend.
A school friend, he is also neighbors with me and still is. We would go to the lake together and swim, ski, and tube together. He was in all of my classes but 4th grade, we would always sit together too. We would agree on all of our conversations, and almost never fight. We both loved and still loved to collect football cards, we would compare and trade with each other. We still are in the same school and are still school friends. I will never forget my school friend.
My best friend, My best friend is very athletic and I have known him since 4th grade when he was on my football team. We hang out almost everyday that we can. One summer we even saw each other everyday (one day he had to drive back from Schliterrban to meet up and keep our streak alive). Our whole family gets along really well so it is easy for our family’s to meet up and have dinner once and a while. We always play fun games like sardines or swim in either of our pools, it seems like when we hang out I am never bored. My best friend will always be my favorite memory.
Friends are so important to everyone that with out them everyone would be more lonely. Friends bond people together and they will never let you down. If you have a true friend then you must be a happier person, true friends are what bring this world together.


Where The Sidewalk Ends

Δ There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we’ll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we’ll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.

By: Shel Silverstein

This poem by Shel Silverstein is my favorite poem because of all of the describing of the place. For example the grass grows soft and white and there the sun burns crimson bright, Shel Silverstein doesn’t just say the sun is bright he is more descriptive by saying that it burns crimson. The use of descriptive writing also makes me feel like I am escaped from reality, like I am in the place where the sidewalk ends.



My Childhood Toy

When I was little, I just couldn’t do without my Woody toy. It was the best toy in the world, and with it I was the most happy. Woody is a main character in the famous Disney movies Toy Story 1, 2, 3. On Woody was a brown cowboy hat that could come off and go back on. He also had a tan and brown plaid shirt and on top was a brown vest. He wore brown chaps and brown cowboy boots, and on the bottom of the boots was a name, my name. He also had a string on his back that when pulled would tell various cowboy phrases like “there’s a snake in my boot”, or “somebody poisoned the waterhole”.

Woody and I had many experiences together including some good, some bad and, some scary. Some that I can remember are when Woody and I were in the car with the window open and suddenly Woody’s hat fell out of the window to the freeway. I remember that I was so disappointed that my parents had to get another just to get another hat. Woody has there when I moved from California to Texas to comfort me when I lost all of my friends. Woody also had my back when I was scared like when I moved to my new school in Texas.

While I played with Woody I always felt happier. I loved that toy so much that I wouldn’t give him up for a while. Without Woody I have grown more mature but, sometimes I want to be a kid again and because of giving him up I can’t be a kid again.


Week 3: Favorite Quote

“Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t.”- Jerry Rice.

This is my favorite quote said by Jerry Rice famous Hall of Fame wide receiver. Jerry Rice was a person that would not step off the gas and would never give up. He would make sure he was the best and was near perfect. Jerry Rice was so committed to working hard everyday that when his team would go out and have fun he would run up a hill and trail that was 2 miles long. When Jerry was young he would help his dad with construction (that is what he did for a living) by catching and throwing bricks to his father from one or two stories high, that is where he said he developed his hands. After drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, Jerry had to exceed expectations to earn a starting job which he did by working everyday as hard as he can.

This quote by Jerry Rice means a lot to me like, to never give up and never stop working your hardest. I believe in this because if want to accomplish something the only way to is by working harder than others. When I am on the football field I always think of this quote when I fell like giving out on myself and after I know that the only way to improve is by doing more than others can. Also when I am in the classroom I sometimes think of this. For example if I am struggling on homework and I just want to give up on it I Think of it and remember to never give up or else you won’t improve. This quote is my favorite quote because of all of the benefites it gives to me.


My Favorite Place

              The king of sports merchandise, the new and coolest things in the sports industry, it consists of any sport you can think of in your head. Golf, Football, Basketball, and Fishing are some of the sports supplies that they sell. Dicks is the best place in the world!

My favorite section is the Football section by far. Gloves, helmets, shoulder pads, and of course footballs are some of my favorite things they sell in this section. It sits in the right corner of the store, alone from all other sports, like it has its one separate store inside. When my mom and sister are shopping in various stores across the Galleria, my friends and I will go straight to the football section to throw a football around in the store.

Another one of my favorite sections is the Hunting/Fishing section. I love to look at the guns and knives across the counter, from the Bear Grills knifes to the countless shotguns. After, I go to the Crossbows, I always say to myself that I will save my money to buy one but  I never end up with enough before I buy the new phone/toy. Also the Fishing section with every bait to spinner you can think of.

The Golf section is also fun not because I like the sport, but because I like the putting green. I do like to look at the bug putters and drivers too when I am there. When I go to Top Golf every now and then I pretend I am using those humongous drivers when I hit. When I am in this section I will sometimes look at how many golf ball brands there are there. It is where I have the most fun here.

I like Dicks because of all of the sports things they sell, not because it is the only place to go in the Galleria, but because I actually like it. I guess you could say I am an extreme shopper knowing how much I go there. Dicks is the best place in the world.


Masks People Use

Why do people wear masks? People wear masks for all different reasons. To show happiness, show sadness, or just to celebrate a holiday or Birthday. People wear two different types of masks typically the visible ones (usually to celebrate), or the invisible ones (used to hide true feelings). Here I will tell you about both of them.

One type of mask is the visible mask the one that is more commonly used. Some of those masks include Halloween masks, Mardi Gras masks,and sometimes Birthday masks. These masks are commonly used to celebrate fun times or a special day. They are used to show off, like in the Halloween masks. These are the masks that people in joy to wear.

The other type of masks are sometimes called emotions like sorrow, happiness, or forgiveness or other feelings. These masks are invisible to the human eye. When someone wears one of these masks you are usually unaware of it. When wearing one of these masks you make someone think that u are happy when you are actually sad or forgiveness when you really don’t forgive them at all. You usually are hiding the absolute opposite.

Why do people wear masks? I know and now you should too.



“Swish” the hoop whispers as I take the high gives my team gives me. I am in my 3rd game in the season and so far we haven’t lost. Today I am feeling my adreniline rush through my body, and as soon as the game started I knew it was my day.

1,2,3 my points are racking up. By the end of the first half I think I had at least 9 points including a three pointer from the outside wing. All of my shot were set shots on the wing or a little next to the wing. “Beep” the buzzer sounds the end of the first half ends great with us winning 27-14.

The second half begins and I am back first shot bounces off the rim and goes in. ” that’s 11″ I say in my head. I dribble down the court pass to the point guard who fakes a shot passes to me then I imediantly shoot and make it. This continues intel I gain 20 points, and “beep” thats the game. With a whooping win of 42-19.

I go to congratulate the other team I know in my head how many points I scored and I will be happy to tell my parents about it.


Pep Rallies

The unamusing cheerleaders, the voices that excel past the sound barrier, the mediocre games that are supposed to make everybody laugh, and those glitchy microphones that screech shivers down your back. Pep Rallies are no fun.

Boring, one word to describe why I loathe Pep Rallies. With the sloppy, boring cheerleaders that really don’t make me have any pep. Also the kid games that for some reason some people think they are amusing. Usually the games will include a teacher on your team for two people games, and if you were to win the game you win a few little pieces of candy. Also the constant talking of the school councilors that talk about problems are school has, it seems like they take days! How can that be fun?

Loud is the other reason why I dislike Pep Rallies. When you arrive the voices will fly out and smack you silly. There are competitions on who is the loudest grade. The only grade that actually participates is 6th grade, but they scream like little girls on the top of their lungs. Also with non-stop talking through-out the Pep Rally it is hard to concentrate on anything.

With all of these distractions in the way how can anything be amusing? Fun is not a word to describe that.
