Hope For The Future

Hey blog world! In this blog post I’m going to write about on what I want to do in the future!

After high school, I want to go to university.

I want to study to be a doctor (either a family doctor or speech therapist) because I’d like to help out other people and I like math and psychology.

I’d also like to be a part time dance teacher for a bit (I’d probably teach jazz, tap, and maybe modern) because I love dancing and maybe go back to my dance school to teach it someday! And if I have a daughter, I’m putting her into dancing lessons when she’s 4 or 5! 😛

And maybe also a photographer because I like taking pictures of scenic images that are pleasing to the eye. Yes, I take non scenic pics but that’s not what I’m talking about! 😛

I’d also like to travel to certain parts of the world (besides England and New York); like Russia, Australia, Hawaii, Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Norway, Greece, Ireland, somewhere up north of Canada, Indonesia, (maybe) China, and Morocco!

I hope to get married to a nice, caring, and respectful guy somewhere in my late 20’s or early 30’s.

And I hope to have 1-3 kids.

And I hope to live long enough to see my grandchildren.

What is your hope for the future? Tell me in the comments, or, write a blog post yourself about it!

District Camp 2014

Hey blog world! This weekend I was at a district camp for Girl Guides! There were sparks, brownies, guides, pathfinders, and us rangers! There were about 40-60 people in total. I’m going to mention on what happened!

First when I arrived there, I got my name tag and headed for the field and we put up our tents. There was about three to four to a tent. Everyone but the sparks and brownies camped outside (they slept inside).

Later on that night, we had a campfire and sung songs! We had smores and wieners. One kid (a brownie) told the story of the Click Clack Man. Not everybody heard the story but I happened to be near them. I heard about it before! It’s not real so go ahead and read.

Here’s the story

There was once a man who had no legs. He used his long finger nails to get around. If he was nearby, you would hear a “Click, clack…” sound. He murdered people who stayed out too late and those unlucky would have a horrible encounter with the Click Clack Man.

Once there was a girl who wanted to go to play at her friends’ house. Her mom said to come back by 6:00. That was the time the Click Clack Man would come out and look for victims.

The girl and her friend were having so much fun, they lost track of time. The girl looked and it was 6:15. She left her friend’s house and walked home.

As the girl was walking, she heard a click clack noise. She fastened her pace. The sound became closer and closer she made a run for it. The sound was gone for a bit. When she got home, she knocked on the door for her mother to open the door. No answer. The sound came back and got closer and closer.

“Mom! Open the door!”

When her mom woke up, she went to her front door and got the fright of her life.

Her daughter was laying in a pool of blood, and beside it was a note that read “You should have opened the door.”

That story was freaky! Especially since it was dark outside!

Another kid mentioned the Slenderman. I’ve heard about that before too. He is a tall man with no face, with tentacles, lives in the forest, and kidnaps children. I don’t think that’s real…I don’t think…

I told them another story. The ghost with bloody fingers. It’s worth a read. Go ahead!

There was a man playing his guitar one night. He lived alone. The man didn’t know the house was haunted.

A voice called “Bloody fingers, bloody fingers…”

He didn’t hear the voice.

“Bloody fingers! Bloody fingers!”

Still strumming away…

“BLOODY FINGERS! BLOODY FINGERS!”

The man heard the voice and screamed…

“If your fingers are bleeding, then get yourself some bandages!”

It was soon time for bed. The rangers could stay up for as long as they wanted to. I didn’t. I wanted a proper sleep and the latest I can stay up is 11:00. I don’t stay up late much.

The next morning I got woken up by a crow.

Sooner or later, we had to do a gate run. We had to run to the gate to see what the scoop was for the day, then get our breakfast.

For breakfast the first morning, was pancakes and bologna.

Then we got into two groups.

First we made tye-dye shirts! Mine wasn’t much but it had a pink and purple rose, and a heart in the middle!

Then, we went geocaching and had to follow directions given by a GPS and they lead us to Rocket candies and glow sticks!

Later on in the afternoon was a scavenger hunt in the woods (in my group we found most of the items on the list)! Followed by another craft where we made bags! I chose the colours of green and pink! Then we went back to the field to play a compass game. One of the leaders read out a story with the directions names’ and had to spin around if our direction was called out. Then we all had to move if “world” was mentioned.

A few of the brownies decided to play “What Time Is It Mr. Wolf?” afterwards. In that game there is a wolf whose back is turned to the ones who are not wolves at a far distance and the non wolves ask the wold what time it is, and whatever time the wolf says, they take that many steps. If the wolf calls out “Lunch time!” they have to run back home in order to not get caught, or else, they are wolves too. I played a few rounds and got to be the wolf once. Then I just decided to watch the rest.

For supper we cooked chicken and made a pizza! They tasted delicious!

The bonfire was earlier than the night before. It was at 8. We sung a few campfire songs and all.

Before I went to bed I helped clean the dishes.

Last night was probably the worst night of getting to sleep.

Some people were playing music a few houses nearby for a long time.

Second, a girl in my tent was snoring like crazy! It was super loud! Holy cow!

This morning I got woken up a squirrel! LOL!

We had egg McMuffins. We made our own.

Before we left, we grabbed our stuff and all that, I left a bit earlier than everyone else.

It was a fun weekend! Yes, I would go back next year! 🙂

If My Life Were A Musical…

Hey blog world! In this blog post I’m going to write about what kind of musical my life would be closest to! Here it goes!

If my life were a musical, it would be most like Hairspray.

In Hairspray, Tracy Turnblad (the main character), has a positive influence on life and makes sure that nothing gets her down. I consider myself optimistic like Tracy (not bragging or anything).

Tracy Turnblad also likes to persuade others on trying new things (such as influencing her friend Penney to watch the Corny Collins Show and trying to get her mother to get of the house and face the real world). Me? I can be persuasive!

Despite the fact Tracy didn’t get the role for auditioning for the Corny Collins Show, she still keeps her mind going to not give up on anything, and to keep reaching for the stars! Me and my friend Laura tried to audition for a part in the Beauty and the Beast musical at our school last year, neither of us got a role, but this year we’re gonna try again and hope for the best!

Bonus: Favorite songs from the musical?

The Name’s The Thing

Hey blog world! Today’s daily post (which youl can find here) is “The Name’s The Thing”

Have you ever named an inanimate object? (Your car? Your laptop? The volleyball that kept you company while you were stranded in the ocean?) Share the story of at least one object with which you’re on a first-name basis.

Four years ago I remember naming my Swiffer duster Dusty. It’s still around in the pantry somewhere. I don’t call it Dusty anymore though…I should though! LOL!

Have you named an inanimate object that you own? Tell me in the comments!

Adventure Camp – Day 5

Hey blog world! Today was the last day of adventure camp. Here’s what happened!

First thing happened was magic spot.

After that the kids got their masks ready to present to one of the interpreters. Their masks were some type of creature in the wildlife they had to choose from and how humans were affecting them.

Then we played the Salmon game! We played it on Monday. This time I was swinging the rope the first time with Salmo, Oak was the bear, and Dragonfly was the fisherman in the boat! We then played another round. This time the junior counselors got to play and switch with some other kids! Oak and Dragonfly got caught by the bear. I ALMOST made it…but missed the line I had to jump over afterwards 😛

After lunch, it was time to go swimming. Except, I didn’t go. I wasn’t feeling well enough to go swimming (I was well enough to show up though!), so I had about three hours to myself! I didn’t do much, I just cleaned up a little, played on my phone, and looked around in the nature centre.

When they all came back, everyone signed each others cards and such. Dragonfly didn’t come back since she was going to be working at the swimming place, so me and Oak signed their cards.

I had a great two weeks camp counseling and I’m going to apply again for one more summer next year! It was awesome! 🙂

Adventure Camp – Day 4

Hey blog world! Today is the second last day of adventure camp! Here’s what happened today!

Oak was the only one missing. There was just me (Garden Gnome), Dragonfly, and Salmo as the counselors there today.

First thing happened in the morning, the kids started painting their masks! Theirs all looked pretty good!

Then, magic spot happened. As usual, nothing much had happened 😛

After that, three people came in and gave a presentation about greenhouse gases and whatnot.

After lunch, we went to a nearby playground and the kids played on the play equipment for a bit.

A few minutes before we left, a camp for people with challenging needs came over to the playground. They were later going to visit the nature centre afterwards.

“Why are adults playing around on the equipment?” one kid wondered.

“They are not well.” I said.

“Are they disabled?”

I of course, said yes.

He kept repeating what one of them said “I am coming!”. Which sounded like they were making fun.

“That is nothing to make fun of.” I explained, twice, and I think they got it.

Later on afterwards, another presentation came in from Red Cross about life jacket safety.

Soon afterwards, we went on a hike around the “Long Pond” for sightseeing with binoculars.

And of course, with time flying, it was time to go home!

We’re going swimming tomorrow!
