We Day!


Recently I joined a group at my school called Interact. It's a group that organizes fundraisers throughout the year at our school for local and international charities. Anyways, today I found out that I am one of the students who get to go to We Day! I am super excited! I can't wait! This is exactly the kind of stuff I want to do with my life. I want to change the world, make a difference and help those in need. :D Don't know what We Day is?

What things are you excited for?

9/11

To be honest, I don't really remember it. I don't remember the day, exactly 11 years ago, when the Twin Towers were hit. I was only about 4 years old at the time. Though that doesn't mean I don't know about it, and feel incredibly sorry for those thousands of people whose lives were taken. My heart also goes out to all of the family members and friends who were affected by this tragic event.

I watched a show about it last night. I can't even imagine what it must have been like for those people. Many of them didn't even know what was happening. Many were told that everything was okay, and that they should stay where they were.

And then there were those who ran into those burning buildings when everyone else was running away. The ones who risked their own life to save others. It's these heroic stories of survival and fearlessness that gives this whole situation a little bit of sunshine in the storm. And just like they're planning on rebuilding on Ground Zero, we can use 9/11 and rebuild so that nothing like this will never happen again.

Miscellany Monday

To link up too, click here.

1. Summer's end and the beginning of another school year is fast approaching. I'm trying not to think about it too much. I'm looking forward to it somewhat because Fall is my favourite season, yet at the same time I'm kinda nervous. Anyways, to end off the summer, yesterday my family and I went to a zoo. It was really fun. My favourite animals were the gorillas. They are beautiful creatures. I feel bad for them though because they looked a little sad all locked up in there big cage.

2. Also, I've been making some things to decorate my locker with. I've made some cute magnets out of buttons, duct tape, scrapbook stickers, fabric ect. I also took some of my favourite quotes I found on pinterest and put them on some of my photos.


3. This school year I'm going to try to be more productive and not procrastinate! I say that every year, but this year I'll really try hard because Universities start looking at your grade 11 marks, so this year is when it really starts to count! And leaving everything to the last minute is just a bad habit in general, so I want to break it.

Well, that's all for my very first Miscellany Monday post. Have you already started school? What things are you looking forward to?
