It was a special day for me. My named is Jasmine and it was my birthday! All of my family members came to Seol Gate for my birthday. It was on September 8th, and we were going to a sushi place. The sushi chef made me a tower of all kinds of sushi. It had rice, tuna, avocado, cucumber, and more. It was so big that it fell over. It was like a real tower falling over, but my family didn’t get mad or sad, we all just laughed. When the tower fell over, we all still ate it. When everyone left and went home, we went home, too. When we got home, my dog, Louis, jumped up and grabbed the cake out of my hand and ate it. I wasn’t mad at my dog, Louis. I still had fun with my family and going out to eat, so I didn’t get mad at him. I still had the best birthday party ever, and I hope I get to do this next year.
One day I was sitting on my couch watching TV. Then this commercial came on about a robot. It was a tutorial on how to make one. So, of course, I wanted to make one. But I didn’t have the right material. So I just used pots, pans, wooden spoons, and spatulas.
First I used a crock-pot for its head. I used a long frying pan for its body. I put some wooden spoons for its arms and hands. Then I put spatulas for its legs and feet.
That night, I worked on it forever! I didn’t go to bed until 3:00 am. But the next night, before I went to bed, I looked out my window and wished on a star that my robot would come alive.
The next morning I heard banging and breaking and pounding. I opened my garage door, and right there in front of my face, was a robot!
“Ahhhhhh.” I screamed, “What are you doing in my garage?”
“What do you mean? You wished that I would come alive, and here I am,” the robot told me.
“What have I done?” I say to myself.
“You have created me,” The robot said.
“Omg, I have to take this wish back!” I mumble.
I had to take this wish back because I knew my mom was probably going to kill me when she saw this robot! I am so scared. The robot destroyed everything in my garage! I was furious with that thing!!
But that night I looked out of the window, and wished I could take my other wish back.
The next morning I searched my whole house, and I didn’t see anything. I was relieved. But I still had to clean and fix everything in my garage.
On May 13, 2015, I was having a birthday at the new Quetzalo Zoo, and an alligator dropped in! It started when the zoo didn’t know they lost their alligator, named Leo. I was having a party in the party room with most of my friends and family, and throughout the party, we thought we heard footsteps above us.
I finished opening my presents, and we had forgotten about the footsteps. So we were going to eat the cake, and right as I took the first bite an alligator that was six feet long, fell out of the vent above us! It, thankfully, didn’t hit the cake. After it landed it nearly bit off my arm, so I threw a spoon at it. That only made it angrier, so we grabbed some forks and chairs to defend ourselves. My older brother, Chris rushed to get the staff. After about 5 minutes of defending ourselves, the staff rushed in. They were finally able to put the alligator back in its enclosure.
We thanked the staff and they moved us to party room #2. We were then able to continue the interrupted party. Me, my friends, and family still remember Leo, the Birthday Gator.
Dear Reader, this story was totally made up and it may hopefully never happen. The Quetzalo Zoo is also fictional, but it may become a real zoo.
It was a good day. My friends and I went to school and everything. But when the bell rang at 3:00 pm, we were heading out the door. We rode the bus to my house. But when we got there, my mom wasn’t home, but she had left a note on the fridge saying that she went on a business trip with my dad. My sisters weren’t going to be home, either.
So we ordered some pizza and we got some sodas. We also played on my mom’s Mac Book Computer. But as we were playing on it, Casey dropped her drink on the computer…
We were all panicking, and Casey felt bad. The computer screen was black, and we couldn’t turn it on. We tried everything we could to fix it before my mom came home, but it wasn’t worth a try.
It was a big problem because my mom had JUST bought that thing. I knew as soon as my mom got home, I was going to be dead meat!
When she saw what happened she flipped! She raised her voice and started to yell at me and she even said that I was going to have to buy her a new one! Then she grounded me for 3 months.
Exactly 3 days ago, my best friend, A.J., had a birthday party in a house made entirely of glass. The party was going exceptionally well until, “CRASH!” Suddenly, a rainbow unicorn crashed through the glass and landed right on my friend, Johnny, it then began having strange muscle spasms. In all the commotion, I puked on A.J.’s birthday cake! Once that happened, it was like a domino effect. Everyone else began puking all around! At least that meant that I wasn’t the only one who puked, and nobody would hate me.
After we pried the wiggling unicorn off of Johnny with A.J.’s surfboard, and failed to get all of my puke off the birthday cake, we all looked up at the huge hole the unicorn had made in the glass. As we looked up, we saw a red dragon-like creature heading straight towards the glass house at mach5! By the time it was close enough to distinguish the fire it was exhaling, it was almost too late. We had to evacuate as fast as we could before it incinerated the whole house, unicorn and all! In the end, we had to have A.J’s birthday party at his grandpa’s house where we were sure no mythical creatures could find us.
I just finished making my new robot. If I did it right, it should be able to walk, talk, think, and do what I say. My robot is made of metal, empty soda cans, springs, and batteries. I named her Zebra because I painted her all in zebra colors! I gave her turquoise hair, and blue eyes. I want her personality to be social, nice, and shy. Now I am ready to test her out.
Her blue eyes flashed with a bright light. She turned and looked at me. “Hello, my name is Zebra!” she said.
“I am Isabella, your master,” I said.
“I am at your command,” she said.
“Please go get me a snack,” I said.
“Yes master,” she said. I sat there and waited. I thought, this might actually work! She came back with a Twinkie.
“Oh my gosh, I love Twinkies!”
“I know that, I found that out by searching what is Isabella’s favorite snack, in my head.”
“Wow, you’re amazing!”
“Lets take a walk,” I said. We both went around the block, and all the kids and adults stared at us. This is awesome, I thought, and we continued our walk home. Once we arrived home, I gave Zebra some metal to eat.
“Could you please put on the movie Gravity?” I said.
“Yes master,” she said. I watched the movie while she ate her metal. Then we got ready for bed.
She went to the bathroom with me and we both brushed our teeth. Her toothbrush is made of springs, and a bit of metal. After that, I put on my pajamas,( Zebra can’t because her clothes are painted on her.) and then we made our beds. Zebra’s bed is fully made of metal. Once we made our beds, we went to bed.
“Goodnight Zebra!” I said.
“Goodnight Isabella,” she said. Then we both went to sleep.
I created a robot today out of snakeskin, rotting lemons, and gold star stickers. First, I stuffed the snakeskin with the rotting lemons. Next, I sewed it up with my mom’s sewing machine. Finally, I stuck gold stickers all over my robot and took him over to my desk and asked him to help me with my homework. When he didn’t respond, I completely gave up on him. About 15 minutes later, he began to stink so bad, Mom had to spray him with her chakra spray to make him smell good again. After that, something mysterious began to happen, pink bubbles began surrounding my robot, and when they finally dissipated, my robot had eyes, ears, a mouth, arms, and even legs!
“Hello!” said the robot. “My name is Goldy Lemonsnake.”
I couldn’t believe my ears. My robot was talking! We began to strike up surprisingly enjoyable conversation after I introduced my self.
“So, Goldy,” I said, ”do you know the meaning of life?”
“Sadly, no,” replied Goldy. ”But I do know everything else.”
“Really?” I said. "Then what’s the square root of 64?”
“What’s the tallest animal?”
On and on we went, until finally I forced him into doing my homework and then we went outside to play in the yard.
“Help me!” cried Goldy.
To my surprise, Goldy was being peed on by a dog! I took him inside and prepared him a bath. Once the bath was ready placed him in the warm water. The water began to turn pink and bubble.
“See ya’!” said Goldy Lemonsnake.
“Wait, Goldy, where are you going?”
In the blink of an eye, Goldy disappeared in the water. I haven’t seen him since. Maybe when I put him in the water, the “magical” chakra spray washed off and he dissolved into the water. I miss the little guy very much. Hopefully, someday, I’ll see Goldy again.
On May 21st, I built a robot that can talk and think. I built it out of computer chips, steel, springs, a flexible material for the ear and a skin like fabric. The batteries go through a flap in the back of its head. It requires 5 D batteries. I now proceed to test it out…
“Bzz…zzz…z…Hello how are you?” asked the robot.
“My God it worked…hello my name is professor Evans,” said Rodney.
“Hello Professor,” said the robot. “What shall be my name?”
“I shall call you the Turbolinian 2000…or just Turbo, for short,” said the professor.
“Ok,” the robot said. “What shall I do now?”
“For now, just get used to my lab. I built you room over there.” Then the professor pointed to a room.
Turbo then got used to the lab, and was ready for commands.
“Now, what do I do, sir?” asked Turbo.
“Can you get me some fries from Wendy’s?” asked the professor.
“Ok I’ll be back.” replied the robot.
Later, Turbo got back, and Rodney enjoyed his snack. Then they lived happily ever after.
"Come on Jakie! please come with us," Lacy whined.
I let out a deep sigh. You see my friends are going to this huge Halloween party keep begging me to come.
"Ya, come on Jakie. You don't want to be a buzz kill. Do you?" Hayden sneered with a smirk.
"Shut up Hayden" I growled.
"Well of course if you want to be a buzz kill then, just-" he started but we cut him off. "Shut up Hayden!" me and Lacy yelled.
"Fine, I'll come if you just shut up about it," I said with annoyance thick in my voice. Lacy and Hayden cheered and dragged me away to get ready for the party. Once we were all ready we piled up in the car. They could not stop talking about the stupid party. We finally got to the party and they dragged me inside.
2 hours Later:
My head hurt from how loud the music was, only 20minits after we got here I lost Lacy and Hayden. I was walking down the hallway when someone ran into someone, I looked up to see Lacy and Hayden.
"There you are! Where were you? we looked all over for you." Lacy said while Hayden helped me up.
"Come on were going to play truth or dare," Hayden said with a taunting look. I followed them down the hallway and into a bedroom with about 5 other people. We all sat down in a circle,. after a few rounds of the game it was Zoe's turn (my enemy). She turned to me with a smirk.
"Truth or dare, Jakie?" She said the smirk not once leaving her lips.
"Dare," I stated simply. She looked taken aback.
"I dare you to go for a walk in the woods with no coat," she said with a cold look in her eyes. "Unless you're too scared, of course," Zoe said.
"Fine," I said walking out the door and into the woods with them watching from the window. I looked around.a I had been walking around for at least an hour,every thing looked the same and it seemed like I had been walking on the same path over and over. I walked around a bit more until I could not take it, i sat in the snow with my back on the tree. I started to see my life flash before my eyes and I started to fall into a dreamless sleep forever...
Legend has it that on every Halloween night anyone who walks in the forest must have a gift for Jakie to pass safely though the woods. Gifts like dolls, toys, and other things. If not, you
will get lost in the woods and suffer the same fate as she did.
It was Halloween night, about 2 years ago. Thunder was booming outside my window. I had just finished sorting my candy from trick-or-treating, and I was ready to attend my Halloween meeting. My friends and I headed to have a sleepover at a haunted house , where ghosts were living and the dead were aroused. I was extremely frightened at almost everything, but my friends finally told me not to worry about a thing. As we became tired, we laid in our beds, with all of our brains cramped with fears of the dead. The night was long, full of curious noises. The vases were moving, but I remained voiceless. Finally, when we all woke up, we realized we were missing my best friend, Chuck!
We checked high and low, and then outside in the snow. When we turned around to head back in, we saw a creature in the window, it's face flush and thin. We rushed to the room where we saw it, and we saw Chuck, frozen solid! We carried him back to my Mom's apartment, and I grabbed our torch out of the off-limits compartment. When he was finally done being thawed, we asked him what he had saw! "A ghost!" he plainly said, we thought he had bonked his head. But from that night on, when I'm counting sheep, I close my eyes to see that mysterious being, and I can't fall asleep.
One night on Halloween, Rodney dressed as the character Dead Pool. He was in a bright red costume with a mask and a belt. He walked to the next house, apartment 38. When he opened the door to the dark, cold house, he heard the laugh of a great beast, "HaHAAUAHADAHAWEAR!" the beast said.When he looked all he saw was a large silhouete
Then the beast chased him down the block till he could not run any longer and then he stopped. Then, when the beast got far too close for comfort, it came closer...and closer...and closer. Until he heard it's voice, "You should have seen your face!"
It was only yours truly, Sam, playing a brilliant prank in his jelly bean costume.
One Halloween in Barrow my friend William and I went to an old man's house. When we went inside, we had seen the wife, and it was pretty creepy. We had heard that the house was burnt down about two years ago and it was really creepy. They fed us some Ulutagaq (caribou meat with gravy and rice). We had slept over there. They let us sleep on the hard couches. the old man said, "It's the best we have got."
Then after that morning we had left, but when I woke up, I saw ashes and it was weird. There were ashes everywhere. We checked all the rooms in the house, and we found two old skeletons on a queen sized bed. I reached for one and it grabbed ME and said, "You very lovely for an eleven year old." And the man said, "You guys are ours now." And we ran out the door as fast as we could. Out of breath, the skeletons were chasing us! I had to sprint fast but then I slipped. Knocked out in the middle of the road, my uncle found me and asked me what happened. And he said he will keep it a secret, just to me and him.
One night on October 31, 2012, there were these three girls named Alice, Hailey, and Kayla. There dad was going to take them Trick-or-Treating. They all went to River View because that is where they go every year. So they went trick-or-treating at about 7:00 pm. There dad usually just drops them off at one end of the street, and then just waits for them at the other end. So anyway the girls just had some fun and got some candy.
It was about 9:30pm and the girls had just finished with the last house on the block. But there was one problem. They didn't see their dad. "Where's dad?!", said Kayla. They were looking around.
The time went by slowly and there dad wasn't in sight. None of them had their phones and there was no communication whatsoever. So then the girls decided to walk back down the block just to make they didn't miss him on accident. They do not see him anywhere.
At 9:55pm Alice pointed at this house that was near a dead end. So the girls went to go and knock on the door. Plus they had no other choice to go in because it was cold outside and they didn't want to get frostbite. They knocked on it and there was no answer. They knocked on it again. Still no answer. But as they were walking away, they heard the door creak open.
It was a old man. I'd say that he was in his early 50's. He was also African-American. Then he told the girls to come in and get some tea to warm up. So of course they listened to him. They sat down on his couch and they explained to him what was wrong. He said that he understands what they are going through.
After about an hour, the man sat down right in front of the girls and told them that he was blind and he can't see anything. Then he took the girls downstairs to watch some tv. But it turns out that he wasn't blind and he didn't take the girls down there to watch t.v..
Once he opened the door to the basement, the girls screamed to the top of their lungs. Because right there in front of their face was there dad, and he was in this closet and he couldn't get out.
The girls tried everything they could to get him out of there, but it wasn't going to work. About 5 days passed and they were still held hostage. But then Dianna spotted this window that could easily open. So they untied there dad with a knife that they found, and they climbed out of the window. They started screaming help help we have been kidnapped!! Please help us!!
Then a cop found them and and he brung them to a person that could help with their situation. That person's name was Adri. Adri said that she was going to bring them to a place that was going to give them food and a shelter until they found the person who did this to them. But it turns out that Adri was the old man's mom. And she brought them right back down to the same exact basement that they were in when they were kidnapped.
Then they finally realized that this whole thing was just a big nasty scheme. But 2 nights later they killed the old man and Adri.
Only, they thought they killed Adri but they didn't. She was faking. So then Adri looked up their address, and their phone numbers. At 2:00am she went to their house, and gave them some shots to make them sleep longer. She put all of them in her trunk and took them right back to the basement to suffer.
No one ever saw Alice, Hailey, Kayla, or their Dad ever again!!!
There was a little girl named Lily. She was really spoiled and kind of bossy. She lived with her mom, dad and brother. One day she asked her dad if she can get a big doll like her with real hair, that was big. Lily's dad said, "Yes".
The car came that had the doll. Lily was looking out the window. Then she saw it, and she screamed. They all ran out the door and waited for the car door to open. Then a pretty girl came out and said, "Hi". She said, "Lily are you ready to meet your doll?"
Lily screamed, and said, "Yes."
Then the girl let Lily in the car and she said, "Her name is Lily Dee."
Lily said, "O my gosh, she has almost the same name as me; ahh!"
Then the girl said, "Hey you know you guys can go to the hair salon."
"Dad can we please please." Mom can come along. I guess you can. Yess!! When they got there they were sitting in chairs. Then a whole bunch kids started saying "Mommy, I want a doll like that."
Then Lily said, "O my gosh, It's like everyone wants my doll. They're totally jealous of me."
Then they went home, and Lily had some friends over. Their names were Savannah, Makailyn, and Jeanae. They all had dolls too but theirs were smaller than Lily's. Then Lily said she was getting a whole bunch of furniture and matching clothes from her dad. Then Savannah said she was getting a new doll, but not furniture and matching clothes.
Lily said, Ah, that's too bad because you're not rich." Then Makailyn took her doll and went to Lilly Dee. Lily said what are you doing?
Makailyn said, Lily Dee has a secret but I cant tell.
Tell me, Makailyn, Lily said. This is my house my room and my doll said Lily.
Fine I will, Lily Dee said. "She doesn't like you".
Lily Dee did not say that, she loves me.
Culk, ahhhhh!!! Then Makailyn ran downstairs and said to Lily's mom, Lily broke my doll's arm.
Then Savannah, Jeanae and Makailyn left. Then Lily got in trouble and her mom took her doll away.
The next morning they had breakfast and Llily's mom got addicted to the doll. Lily asked for it back but her mom said no. Lily's mom was eating breakfast with Lilly Dee. The mom went to get some coffee and Lilly was the only one at the table with Lily Dee.
Ahhh! the mom came back in and said, OMG WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COMPUTER!!
It was Lily Dee! She moved her hand and dumped the gravy, I saw it with my own eyes.
Lily that is a bad excuse. Go to your room
B..but I didn't do it.
So lily ran up to her room and started crying. Then that night Lily's dad had to travel somewhere for his job so it was only going to be Lily, Lily Dee and the mom and brother. Her brother came up and said that was a bad excuse to get away from doing that. Why would you do a horrible thing like that?
IT WASN'T ME!!!!
Then he left Lily's room.
The next day Lily was home alone with her brother and his friend and lily dee. Her mom had to go do something. Lily was hungry so she went to her brothers room and she told him and he said go look for something im playing a game. So lily went to the kitchen and made a sandwich and then she fell asleep on the table by her sandwich. Then the door slammed and she woke up and her mom was home she said hi and then her mom said what is that black stuff on your hands. What black stuff then she looked at her hands what the I never played with black paint. Well go wash it off. Then lily's mom went upstairs into her room and there was the black paint on her wall that said hello. lily's mom screamed lily and said lily get to your room now. Lily ran upstairs and went to her mom's room and said why. Her mom showed her and lily said I didn't do it this time I mean it. LIly go to your room now. So lily's mom had to clean it up and she out the in the bed and went to bed.
The next morning lily woke up with really baggy eyes. Then her mom had to talk to lily and she put a camera in her moms room. That day lily dee saw it and she walked to it and she broke the camera. Then the brother went to get it and it was smashed but it still worked. They played it and the mom hug'ed lily and they started to cry. Then lily's mom went upstair's and grabbed the doll and threw it in their trash can outside. Then she fell out and walked and a big truck hit her and dragged all the way to two little girls and they were like omg its mine then lily dee grabbed their ankle and they screamed and ran away. Lily dee is still alive but has a broken leg and dirty. Thats a story of the creepy doll. This story is from a movie and their is still more to it but it was to long. The movie is called The Haunted Hour. Thats my story of the creepy doll. The End.
On my recent trip to Utah to visit my Grandfather who was recently diagnosed with amyloidosis, I saw my dog, Daisy. About three years ago we gave her to my Grandfather because she would get lost in the snow in the winter. She's eighteen years old, has kidney disease, and her legs are giving up on her. My Grandpa said this would be the last time we would see her and we were devastated. She was there when both my brother and I came home from the hospital, and my mom had Daisy since Daisy was 2 years old.
Because it was the last time we would see Daisy, we loved on the little Daisy every day of our trip until finally it was time to go. We said our goodbyes and thousands of tears were shed. I will always miss the little Daisy girl. I hope she ends up in a better place.
Haunted houses are scary. In Fort Yukon we have a haunted house. It's a two story house. The top is haunted. No scarers go there because it's already scary up there. When you go up there you will feel like you want to go down. The scarers scream.
There are lots of people who want to go up there. There are some scarers downstairs. One man had a real chainsaw, but the blades were off. Long time ago, people lived there, and they died in there. It's very cold, and you could hear voices. Some people run out of there.
On Halloween, everybody goes around and goes trick or treating. In Fort Yukon, Halloween starts at 8:00. That's a little bit late. That's when me and my friends walk around. We stay out late. That's when lots of older people go out and have fun. Up there some people don't wear costumes Like me and my friends, I wore a lot of costumes. I stop wearing my costumes. That's about haunted houses.
About 2 days ago I received my very own copy of Pokemon X. In the beginning, you meet up with your friends, Tierno, Shauna, Calem, and Trevor. They allow you to choose between 3 starter Pokemon to begin your journey with. There is the grass type starter, Chespin, the fire type starter, Fennekin, and the water type starter, Froakie. Once you choose your starter, you can begin your journey.
After catching a few other Pokemon to train other than your starter Pokemon, you can begin to challenge gym leaders. Gym leaders are specially trained Pokemon trainers who train only specific types of Pokemon. For every gym leader you defeat, you earn a gym badge. Once you've obtained 8 gym badges, you can challenge the elite four.
The elite four members are just like gym leaders, but way better. Once you've defeated all four of the elite four, you can challenge the Kalos champion, Diantha. Once you defeat her, the residents of Kalos throw you a huge party, and you become the champion of Kalos. You should definitely play this game. It has 60 more Pokemon in it, it's in 3d, and it's the best game EVER!
Me, my Brother, Elliott, and my little cousin, Randy, and my cousin, Scott, and my older brother, Chris, and my cousin's dog, and my dog all went out past Chena Pump Road to go grouse hunting. At first there was nothing, so we shot our guns for a bit. Then we drove deeper down the trail. We drove for a bit and finally saw a muskrat in a lake. My brother got the 22 rifle, and my cousin, Scott, got the 4-10 shotgun. They shot at it. They missed, so my older brother ran out of the truck and shot at it some more.
We don't know what happened to it, so we just went to the nearby shooting range. I shot my cousin's pistol. When I shot the pistol, I squeezed the trigger and thought, did it work? Then it fired, and I was surprised. I also shot the 4-10 shotgun for a bit and we decided to keep driving. We then saw another muskrat and walked through the trees to where it was. Then my older brother aimed at the muskrat with the 4-10 shotgun. He asked if I wanted to shoot it, but I said no. Then at the last second, I changed my mind. I took the gun and aimed at the muskrat. I put the bead of the sights on the muskrat, then squeezed the trigger. And I hit it! I have bad eyesight so when I shot I asked, "Did I get it?" My brother said yes and I was excited. It was the first animal I ever killed.
The problem was it was on the partially frozen lake. We tried getting it with a branch but that didn't work. So we made my brother take off his pants and go fetch it. The lake got too deep so he came back and his legs were freezing. We finally thought of him walking out again with a willow and sliding it to the ground. I had my utility belt on so I handed him my leatherman, a tool with multiple things on it, and he tried to cut down the willow. That didn't work so we shot the tree down. Then he took of his pants and walked in the lake. It was so funny, I even took a picture of him in the lake. He walked out and was finally able to slide the muskrat to the ground. His legs were so cold he couldn't even feel his toes! We brought it up by the light on the truck, and took a picture of me holding the shotgun and the muskrat.
The next day my dad cooked it and I ate moose meat with my muskrat. It was one of the most delicious things I ever ate. I hope sometime soon we get another fat muskrat to eat before winter.
We had two field trips in the class. The second one was today, and it was fun. We went to the Herring Auditorium. We saw Quixotic Fusion with lights and dancing. I really liked it. The last act was my favorite one because two girls went into the sky and danced on a rope. My second favorite is a man on a pole that looks like a circle but a pole.
We went to the field trips with our little buddies. My buddy was Aliah. She did not like me much. But I liked her. I really loved the field trip at the Hering Auditorium.
We never had a field trip again. Today is Monday the 15.
My class went to see the Quixotic Fusion at the Herring Auditorium. And we went with the buddies. And it was so cool that people were dancing. There was a boy in a hula-hoop, and he was rolling in it. And then two girls was on top of a rope and they was not scared. There was a girl and she was dancing. She was very very good. I think she was the best out of them all. I wish I could dance like her. My buddy said that she will tell her mom about it and she would want to go soon with her mom. When we left, I was so sad that we had to go.
Today was my first day at Denali school. We went to a field trip today. When I went I had a buddy, and he thought that the show was cool. the Herring auditorium Quixotic Fusion had acrobatics, special effects/lights, singing, dancing, violin, drum, gymnastics equipment, costumes, sounds. My favorite part was the man that was in the gymnastics equipment doing acrobatics, It was like a big hula hoop. He was in it and he was doing really cool tricks. there was singing, dancing, people playing violins. There was a lot of kids there. I was sad when we had to leave.
We went on a field trip today. We went to the Herring Auditorium with our buddies at 9:45. We watched Quixotic Fusion. It was so cool. We saw acrobatics. They were dancing with fancy clothing, also there were special effects like the lights were colorful while they were dancing. It was so amazing to watch.
There was a girl singing with the light off, but she had a little candle lit, and when she was singing there was a guy playing the violin. When the girl was singing, it was creepy at first because the lights were off and she had a lit candle, and she looked a little scary at first but not anymore.
There was also this guy, he had a big hula hoop. He swung in it and did all sorts of awesome tricks. It was so amazing, I also myself wanted to do what he did for real. It was so cool you would have wanted to do it. He went inside the hula hoop. It was swinging up and down.
The backgrounds also looked very cool while they were dancing and singing. All the clothing were cool. This woman had these huge things that almost looked like wings. She was laying on the stage, and she was waving them all around. It was so awesome.
The Herring Auditorium was fun. I think everyone enjoyed it!!
We saw The Quixotic Fusion at Herring Auditorium in Lathrop high school for a field trip. One thing I liked was the special effects. There were lights and abstract colors, and it looked like the acrobats were moving with the lights and the drummer. He was playing, and whenever he hit the drum, it would make the cloud-like effect move, and it would look like clouds being thrown around and leaving trails.
Another thing I liked was the acrobatics. There were women that were dancing and on some kind acrobatic rope. There was also this man in a big ring, and he was at first just spinning it, jumping through it. But the exciting part was he got in the giant ring and he was spinning around in the ring.
After that, there was some dancing. The dancers ran around the stage. Then some of them were holding lights. Then after that, a man was dancing and doing gymnastics and holding himself up by balancing on his arms.
Then after that the whole group came out and started bowing. After that it was the end of the concert, and it was awesome!
Our class went on a field trip with our buddies to see Quixotic Fusion, at Herring Auditorium. We saw people dance and sing. I saw a drummer and woman dancing with water shadows and splatter effects in all different colors. Then I saw a guy doing cartwheels and flips in a gigantic ring. I saw a girl that sang in the dark with a candle lit. There was also a guy who played the violin.
There was about 300 people at Quixotic Fusion. Me and my buddy thought that Quixotic Fusion was a great performance.
Quixotic Fusion is a singing, dancing, acrobatics group. We went to the Herring auditorium. It was fun and cool. It had lots of colorful lights when they were dancing and singing. There were violins and drums. It was loud there. There were about 300 kids there.
There was a guy doing a cool trick in a big ring. It was fun. We want with our buddy class. The guy did a wig wig and he was about to fall but it was a trick, and it was cool.
There were lights when they danced. There was a guy playing the drums and a woman playing the violin and a guy was also playing the violin.
Quixotic Fusion hits the small town of Fairbanks, Alaska. Quixotic Fusion started performing at the Herring Auditorium on October 21,2013 at 10:01. I went to go see the performance with my kindergarten buddy. The acrobatics were amazing. One of the men did an act with an extremely large hoop. He even put his hands and feet inside the hoop and started twirling around like a top. He lifted his feet up in a straight line and bended at the knees, while he was spinning like a top.
Two of the girls were in a looped bouncy cord. When "girl number one" let "girl number two" down I thought "girl number two" wouldn't get back up on the cord. Then all of a sudden she jumps and hangs on to girl number two's leg. They dance and dance until both girls had one cord. Then danced again until they were on the ground and out of the cord.
There was also a girl who was singing. The first time she sang she had a candle that she moved up and down. The auditorium was pitch black so when she first started moving the candle it was kind of creepy. But the auditorium brightened up so we could see her better. Also the lights made it so it's not as creepy.
The field trip we went to was super cool. It was called Quixotic Fusion. There was acrobatics, singing, and dancing. Our whole class went with our buddies. The people made a lot of cool effects, but some of the stuff was real! There was this one person that had a big metal hoop, and he put his whole entire body in it, and started to do cartwheels and flips! The same person also balanced on his hands, and then he lifted one hand up into the air, so he balanced on one hand! The desktop computer made splatter like effects. The people had to practice to follow the splatter effects, so when they moved around it would almost look like magic. This one man was super good at playing violin. He played 2 songs. This one women was a super good singer, so she sang 2 songs as well.So we had a super great time at the Herring auditorium and I'm sure all of us had fun.
Quixotic Fusion. There is people going on stage singing and dancing. When people dance, colorful stuff comes up. I went there on a field trip with my buddies in first grade.
The people on stage dress up really cool and they dance with costumes on. In the theater it is really loud. The thing I like at the quixotic fusion is the guy that's in the big ring and the guy was in the ring doing amazing tricks with it i think he practice with it I bet he messes up some times There was like 250 kids there. i think all of the kids in denali were there some of other schools went there. We had a lot of fun at Lathrop.
On the 21st of October we went on a field trip to Herring Auditorium to watch Quixotic Fusion, and we went with our kindergarten buddies. When we got in the theater, it was really packed and crowded when me and my buddy Carson sat down. It was about 10 minutes, I think, until someone came and told us to be quiet and enjoy the show named Quixotic Fusion.
An announcer came on stage and asked us to think about what we liked and what act we would want to be in. Finally, the show started with people dancing and a screen in the back to make it look like they were dancing with the effects. Also a guy played drums behind the screen.
Next there were dancers and the screen played, and it looked like they were dancing with water shadows. After they danced, someone played a violin while a lady sung while she was holding a candle-thing. Later a guy was in a big metal hoop, and did acrobatic things like spinning in it and spinning it. Later people danced and danced. Then later, a guy came and did a front flip did hand stands and many more acrobatic things. I really want to be like the hoop guy; he was so cool!
Finally it ended, and we went back to school. I really enjoyed being at the show.
