On April 25 I ate 10 pepper chennais which is like 30% courage and 70% stupidity.
I got the peppers from boxes of pizza from Papa Johns. At first when I started to chew, my eyes watered, a lot. Once I started to drink my water to cool the burn in my throat I learned that water only makes it worse. Since there was no milk or juice around I had to sit down and toughen-up, so I sat down with a look on my face that made me look like I was choking.
For the rest of the day my tongue burned like never before, and people kept asking me and my messed up face if I was ok, and I said yes.
In my opinion this story was more stupidity than courage. Tell me what you think, if it was courage or stupidity, in the comments below. Also post if you've have a similar experience.
This week was Multi-Cultural Week. Two groups came in and gave presentations. The class learned about some countries and how they were different. The 2 groups were from Thailand, China, Ukraine, Norway, And Germany. My favorite was the Ukraine presentation. I forgot the person's name who gave the presentation, but she told a lot about Ukraine. Soccer was pretty popular in Ukraine, too. Ukraine is in Europe, I think. She also mentioned the alphabet, and it is VERY different from our ABCs. Their language is Ukrainian.
Another favorite of mine is Norway. The person who presented it was Marli. She knew a lot about Norway because she was from there. Some of the common foods are soup, fish, bread, and pizza. She talked about the alphabet too. Norwegian was Norway's language. Soccer was a popular sport too. She told about amazing buildings.
Another is Germany. Nicole gave the presentation, and she is a exchange student. She met more exchange students in Germany. Soccer was popular in Germany too! Except in the 3 countries, it is called football. Anyway, Nicole said there was a couple of old buildings.
At the beginning of the week, people from Laos came to perform at Denali. They danced, sang, and played instruments.
This week was Multi-Cultural Week and I was a guide for three people who were from Germany, Ukraine, Laos, and Norway. In Norway I learned the alphabet and numbers from 1 to 10. I also learned about the extra letters in Norway. In Germany there are a lot of very old buildings. And in Ukraine there are lots of interesting traditions. All the presentations were very interesting. I mostly liked the presentation of Norway and Ukraine. There are more presentations that I didn't get to see.
From Laos there were dancers, and they danced in a traditional way. The Laos dancers taught us how to dance, if we wanted to dance. The Laos dancers performed about six performances. There were two people who sang and played an instrument that the musician himself. The Laos performers were amazing and had pretty regalia on for each dance.
Today six people came to our class today. They were people from other countries. The first group we had had three people in it. One of the people was from China and she told us about her country and how different it is from America. She told us in China school lasts for about 15 hours, and that the math is way more complicated than it is in America. We also had a visitor from Thailand and he talked about his culture. What he talked about that really got my attention was all of the different foods that come from his culture. There was also a guy from New Zealand but he didn't get a chance to do a presentation.
In the second group there were people from Ukraine, Norway, and Germany. The first person to talk about their country was a girl from Ukraine.
Today we had multicultural week presentations. I learned that the money is different from ours. In Norway, it's more expensive there. In Thailand they mostly eat seafood and steak. In China you can only have one kid because it's a small country. Schools in Ukraine are big and the boys and girls have to wear uniforms. Lots of buildings in Germany, Norway, Ukraine, Thailand and China are very old. One thing I would like to know is what kind of art the Germans have. I would also like to know what transportation Ukraine has.
Thailand: Thailand is a very beautiful country. In Thailand the food is very good, way better than the food at the fast food restaurants here in Alaska. I wish I could live in Thailand and maybe be a king or prince, and live in a castle with a whole entire army ready at my command.
Germany: in Germany it can get very cold there, but also very hot in the summer. I would also want to go to visit Germany and play Football.
Ukraine: I learned that Ukraine is an expensive country. I thought their costumes were very unique too. I would also want to visit that island that's underground and look at the ocean. then visit the ancient buildings that are 600 years old.
China: I think the presentation was really good and gave very good detail. In the slideshow she showed us the great wall of China which was very big.
When I get into high school I would want to be an exchange student and travel the world.
There was a group of foreign exchange students that were from multiple parts of the globe. There was a Thai student, an American in Germany that was a student, a Chinese student, and a student from Norway. They talked a lot about the culture, the forms of money, and the famous buildings.
They all talked in their foreign language. The German language sounded a lot like the Swedish. the Thai person wore a tie up shirt most likely from Thailand. Those both were interesting.
This is what I learned about in the week.
This week of school was Multi Cultural week. We got presentations from people that lived on the other side of the world. My favorite presentation was the one on Ukraine. I didn't know that Ukraine had to wear uniforms for school. I also liked the presentation from Norway. The little island in Norway was really cool. I liked the presentation from Thailand. I thought the country looked really cool. I liked how there are a lot of tall buildings.
Laotian people also came earlier in the week. Laotian people were from Asia. Thailand and China is also from Asia. When Laos came to our school, they danced. There was also a person from Laos who made a guitar out of bamboo, and pipes made of bamboo. The guitar he had, only had three strings. He also had background music when he was playing the guitar.
A girl from China also came to do a presentation. I thought that China's presentation had the best food. In China their schools mostly focus in math. They have a stack of books on their desks for school work. She said that her favorite part of her school day is gym.
This week, we had a lot of presentations about different countries from all across the globe. In one week, I learned a lot about six countries! There were people from Laos, and some foreign exchange students later on in the week.
First, there was dancers, singers, and musicians from Laos, a country in South-East Asia. I believe most of the dancers and musicians were students, but I think there was some teachers mixed in there. I was amazed that most of the songs were about their country.
Then there was the exchange students from Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China, and Norway. There was a New Zealand guy, but he didn't talk because they had to leave. The presenter from Thailand was a very good and talked about the food, culture, and many other things Thailand has to offer. One thing that I noticed about him was his shirt, a white, almost transparent, shirt with big, white buttons on it.
The Chinese girl wasn't the best of talkers because she more focused on her life in China, but not so much on the country itself. She did talk about their birth policy and the higher difficulty in school.
The last three people were pretty good in presenting their projects. First a girl from Ukraine, a small country by Russia, talked about their language and many foreign foods I'd never heard of. It was pretty good, and and the next two people did fairly the same. The girl from Norway talked more about sites and thing like that while the girl that was from America and went to Germany talked more about moving.
In general, I found out that there is great food in many places and that our school seems pretty easy compared to what China has. Also, I was greatly interested about how fluently they could speak English. In all think it was pretty educational and fun!
This week was Multi Cultural week. We saw people from Laos, Thailand, Germany, China, Norway and Ukraine. They were all very interesting. I found out that in Germany they have 600 year old buildings!! The people from Laos performed for us. They danced and sang. The woman that sang had a beautiful voice. I really liked their dances. In different places they use different kinds of money and they are different costs. I learned in Thailand they have kings and a democracy. I think that Ukraine is a really pretty place. In China their school is hard; they go to school from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. I enjoyed having multicultural week!!
On May 3, 2013 Denali had multicultural week and we had 6 presentations for us. The first one was a group of dancers from Laos. Their presentation was over and hour, and I almost fell asleep, but is was still fun.
They taught us how to say thank you, good job, and good bye in their language. The dancing was cool, but the bamboo guitar player was the best for me.
The second presentation was about Thailand. This one I liked a lot because my favorite foods come from Thailand.
Today we had people from Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China, Laos and Norway. The first one was from Thailand. He told us what their flag stands for. The blue part means king, the red part means religion, and I don't remember what the white part stands for. On his presentation he showed us the food they ate, the things they wore and their religion. The food he showed us look really good; it made me hungry. The clothes had long sleeves and they were white with black pants. He showed us how much money cost there compared to here. One dollar equals thirty dollars in Thailand. When he showed us some pictures it looks really pretty.
After the Thailand the girl from China went. She showed us some of the food and asked us if we ever tried it. Then she showed told us that the teachers push them really hard to work. I learned that China people went to school at 7:00 o'clock and left school at 10:05 o'clock. She told us that she slept at school in a dormitory with some friends. She also showed us her posters and her alphabet. She said her poster that had a lot of writing. She told us that it was hard to translate it to English.
After math and lunch we had another group come. The first one was a girl from Ukraine. She had a really cool accent. She said that most of the buildings were really old.
This week was cultural week that means that people from around the world come to Alaska and talk about were there from. Today people from Thailand and Germany, Ukraine, China, Norway came to our class and talked to us. On Monday people from Laos came to the school and sang and danced for us.
The girl that talked about Germany did not live there; she lives here, but she went there last year because she was a foreign exchange student. To be a foreign exchange student it is $50,000.
In Ukraine soccer is called football. Ukraine is right by Russia and Poland. That is why she has a Russian accent.
Throughout this week we've had people from multiple cultures come to our school, Denali. The countries were Norway, China, Laos, Ukraine, Germany, and Thailand. My favorite was Norway. I liked their economy style, but their country is very expensive. Say you wanted a Big Mac from McDonald's. You would pay about 5 dollars. I learned In Norway you'd pay around 15 dollars. I forgot the name of money from Norway, but 1 dollar here is about 5 of what their money is called. Norway's food is mostly soup, fish, and pizza. The exchange student from Norway told us, that even on Christmas they eat pizza. In Norway unlike USA, they have Kings, Queens, Princes, and Princesses.
The exchange student from Ukraine was very enthusiastic about her presentation. She made it seem like a great place to go. I learned that it isn't very expensive in Ukraine. 1 dollar is about 50 of the Ukrainian money. Ukrainian sports are mostly soccer, or in Europe and other places around the world, "Fut Ball." For traditional purposes on Christmas there are 12 dishes, and children like on Halloween get candy, except on Christmas they sing and get money. By the way they don't celebrate Halloween, I was using that as and example. Just like Norway, Ukraine has Kings, Queens, Princes, and Princesses.
Thailand is my last favorite presentation. Thai has a king, but they give up a little of their power so the rest of the country has a decision. Thai people eat lots of seafood, because they are right next to the sea. They have lots of soup and spicy foods. It's also very cheap in Thailand. I don't know why it's so cheap, but it is. There are multiple flea markets in Thailand, some are even on the river!
These exchange students inspired me to be an exchange student. I really want to go to Ukraine, because their culture seems very interesting. One day I'm going to be a exchange student!
This week was multicultural week in school. We saw dancers from Laos on Monday, and presentations from exchange students on Friday. The countries were Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China, and Norway. There was a New Zealand, but he didn't really talk about it. The presentations had all kinds of food, money, cities, buildings, etc.
I learned that America has easy going education because the person from China said they stopped school at 10:05 and started at 8:05. Also, the person from Ukraine said the homework here we get is a lot less than their homework.
Another thing I noticed is that the currency from other countries cost more, like in Norway is costs 5.8 Norwegian dollars to make up for 1 dollar in the U.S. Also most of the time there were kings and queens, but they really had democracy.
China had weird laws, but they made sense like the 1 child rule. They made it because they are over populated and if you wanted another child you would have to pay a tax. Also, Chinese schools have rooms in the school for children that way they get more sleep and have a quiet place to study. There are no lockers in any school in China according to the Chinese girl.
Multicultural Week in my opinion was fun. It was nice to learn about countries around the world. I think that maybe I might want to be a foreign exchange student. The bad thing would be that I won't be able to know what country to visit.
During the week we had a lot of multicultural presentations. Some that I'd like to talk about are the students from Thailand, Norway, and China. These were my favorite presentations. There were also two that we didn't get to hear, or only heard a little about. This was Germany, and New Zealand which we heard nothing about because the group ran out of time.
My favorite thing from Thailand had to be the foods. They looked really good. I think if I were to become a foreign exchange student, Thailand would be one of my first picks. They had a lot of foods that I had never seen/heard of before. I think I'd like to live there, because the presenter said that it was really warm there, 66 - 100˚F. I also like all the history he told us about. The sports were cool too.
China was also cool. It reminded me a bit of Thailand, because of the way the foods were represented or looked. I have had Chinese food before, and I think it would be good to live in China. Also, something I think would be interesting is the fact that they went to school for about 14 hours and got out at 10:05 PM. I think this would be way different than living in the US because of time zones. Also one thing I thought was cool is that they lived in dormitories in China in high school, because thy started and got out of school so late.
One of the last things I noticed that I thought was interesting is that Norway's money is about 15 dollars, for an example, like a Big Mac from McDonald's. That makes me think that it is a very expensive place. I really would like to go to Norway too. I think it was cool. One thing I learned about Norway was that one Norwegian Krone is $5.8 United States Dollars. I thought that I would be rich if I brought $1,000 to Norway, I'd have a lot of Krone's. I also learned that they have Kings and Queens.
I really want to go to these places, because I think it'd be a unique experience to go to foreign countries. I just wouldn't want to leave my family for an entire year. I hope I can join a foreign exchange program when I'm older, to go to other countries I'd like to visit.
This week was Multicultural week. A couple of foreign exchange students came to visit us and give us presentations about where the live. The presentations we saw were from Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China, and Norway. Also on Monday we had people from Laos come in and dance and sing for us.
The Thailand presentation we saw was cool. Their alphabet was very different then ours. He talked about how they have king and queen, princesses, and everything like that. I did notice that he was wearing this shirt that had looked like it came from Thai. The thing I like best about Thailand is their food. It's very delicious. From all the things he told us I think I would like to go there some day.
The Germany presentation was also cool, but she didn't give us a very long presentation because she had to go. She didn't come from Germany she was just an exchange student from there. What she did tell us was that there was this building that was about 600 years old. It was also very big. It was so big that the people who stood there next to it looked like ants. She showed us some pictures of when she left her family for 1 year to go to Germany.
The next presentation was from Ukraine. Honestly I think her presentation was the BEST. She told us how her country was very expensive. They also called soccer and football.
We got to hear about Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China and Norway. It was a lot of fun to listen the the presentations they had to say. We got to hear the languages and all the countries had old, old buildings. I would want to go to Norway because it is a BIG country and it looks nice there. Norway has kings and queens.
In China you can only have one kid but if you want 2 kids you have to pay more money to the government.
This wek was multicultural week presentations. They were foreign exchang students that came from other countries. They came from Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China, Norway, and earlier in the week, Laos came and did traiditional dances.
A guy from Thailand was wearing a white shirt that was a little different than a dress shirt from America. He was dark skinned, with a mustache and a short beard. He had an accent that you could understand pretty well. The facts he gave out were that Thailand was hot and rainy, but never snows. The elephant represents Thailand. They drive cars like we do, but had a different car called the Took Took that had 3 wheels! I thought it was very interesting. I wonder if it is cheap or expensive to live there.
A girl from Germany, well she wasn't from Germany, but she went there. I learned that they had very, very old buildings. For example, there was a picture she showed us that the building was 600 years old! I also learned that they have states inside of Germany like America. I wonder if it is hard to learn and speak their language.
A girl from the Ukraine was wearing the same clothes like any person would, but at the schools you have to wear uniforms, like an old fashion looking uniform. I learned that during Easter they would dye the eggs and paint them a really pretty and old fashion looking way. During Christmas they can go door to door and sing carols and people can give them money. I wonder what are all traditions they do there are, and why they do it.
A girl from China was wearing a necklace that said something in Chinese. Other than that, she was wearing normal clothes. I learned that people that live in China can only have one child because China is over populated. It was hard to understand what she was saying because she was stopping in between her sentences. I also learned that China looks more modern than like Germany. The food has lots of noodles and vegetables. I wonder if they use chopsticks to eat rice.
A girl from Norway was my favorite of all of them. I learned that is really expensive to live there even though they have good oil production and have plenty of money to go around. I learned that there is a dish called brown cheese and all the Americans say it sounds disgusting, but she says it's a little sweeter than regular cheese. Her accent was smooth to understand, but she did roll her r's. I learned that Norway is like the Europe version of Alaska. I wonder what traditions they do.
This is my report on multicultural week. First, I leraned about theire flag. It is red, white and blue just like ours. I learned that they can have only one kid. Any more and they pay taxes! There was a kid who came from America and went to Germany. In China they have 15 hours of school. That is my report on the multicultural week.
Hi my name is Trinity and I'm going to tell you about the people that I met in different cultures and I learned a lot of things and they gave us some good information. Today people came and talked about there cultures and we learned about Switzerland, Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China, Norway. In Switzerland I learned that there are no cars in the city but they have buses but most of the time they ride bikes in the city every day. They told us imagine if you had to ride a bike every day and the kids said it would be tiring just riding bikes in the city every day and taking buses. So me and my friends got to show them the classrooms and they get to do their presentations for the classes.
In Germany they have some cars that we got, but some cars are different from what we have, and they don't have speed limits so they can go as fast as they can, and all the children were all like WHAT! THAT'S NOT FAIR. I WANT TO GO TO GERMANY. And the people said you can ask your mom and dad if you want to go to Germany; we will see you there, maybe. And it was a funny joke.
It was fun bringing the people to the classes and we all learned lot of things again, so I hope that the classes enjoyed the presentations of Germany and Switzerland.
Today and Monday we learned about Thailand, Germany, Ukraine,
China, Norway, and Laos. In the Norway lesson an exchange student told us about it. We saw that Norway was an expensive country. They had bread most of the time. There was a famous fort on an island that you pay to get to on a boat.
In the China lesson is the one that I really liked because I want to know more about China. I learned that at their high school they go from 7:30.A.M. to 10:05 P.M. and they were being pushed hard. They have both old looking cities and new looking cities.
Today foreign exchange students came to our school to talk about where they are from. We heard from students from Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China, and Norway. The first presentation that I am going to tell about is from China. The person from China was a girl, and she told us what kind of food they eat, what they do to celebrate, and their school. She told us that on Chinese New Year they have fireworks, and they give out these money packets. She told us about some different dishes, and one of the dishes was dumplings. From all of the food she talked about, the dumplings were my favorite. The school there in China was from 7 in the morning a little after 10 at night. At the school there, they sleep at the school with roommates. She also told us that the math here is really easy, but the math in China is really hard. She told us that they push the people there to do really good, so that's why the math is hard.
Now I'm going to talk about Ukraine. When she showed us pictures of the buildings there, some of them looked like ones in old pictures. She said that the buildings there were really old, so they had to fix them up so they stay up. She also talked about there being kings, and queens. She showed us some pictures of castles, from other kings and queens. The castles there were for their protection. On the way to the girl's school from Ukraine, she would see a castle every time. I did not ask her any questions, but if I did, here are what some of them might have been: If she has every been in a castle, or has lived in a really old house, or has ever lived anywhere else.
I think that they did a good job, and I learned a lot more then I already knew.
This week, a lot of people from different places came to my school. These are the countries: Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, China, and Norway. Lao people did come to my school, but they didn't give a presentation, they danced, sang, and wore their costumes or whatever was really pretty. And I just loved how it looked. I really liked all the presentations. And they told a lot of information about the country and I really liked that. So here are the two countries I will be talking about!
The first country I'm going to be talking about Thailand. I'm half Thai, too. My mom's Thai, my grandma, grandpa, everyone that's in my mom's family. I'm really interested in going there. I learned a lot. Like, I didn't know the flag color, and now I do, which is red, blue, and white. White stands for religion, blue stands for king, and red stands for.. I forgot. I still want to know about Thailand, though. Like I want to try practicing how to speak their language. I loved the buildings, which were for the tombs, and Queen, King, Prince, and Princess. Thai money is way different than American money. Thailand's city is Bangkok. They would have a festival, racing, boxing, and boat racing which is really popular because they have lots of rivers.
The second country I'm going to be talking about is China. China's school has no lockers, they have to put their books and stuff on top of their desk, so it looks a bit messy. This is the part, that's SO unfair, but it's that they get to sleep! Basically because they start school at 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. They have laws and rules that are way different than ours. Like in China, you have to have 1 child unless you want to pay a lot of money for the child you're trying to 'Plan to have' and we learned the language a bit.
THANKS FOR LISTENING!
A while back I had quite the strange experience that no man, woman, or child have ever had. The sun came up, and I got ready for a relaxing day in the middle of summer. After I got dressed and ate a healthy meal of pancakes, I headed down to brush my teeth. After brushing my teeth I discovered to my horror, a pink sticky note...on the door! The note stated, "Eat note to gain invisibility, limited time though, only 24 hours left!"
In my head my brain was talking to me, Come on Jack! Eat the note!
Well, my brain won, and I stuffed the note down my mouth and headed to eat breakfast right when my mom walked through the door, "Well, Jack, I see you found the pancakes!"
"Uh, huh," I said through the note. Boy! did it taste bad!
I told my mom that I'd be out walking around and I stepped out right when the invisibility kicked in. You see, I learned fast that the downside to invisibility is that you trip a lot, 'cause you can't quite see where your feet are so you tripping about trying to find your footing. After stumbling around for some time I got dreadfully bored, so I took a bike ride.
I didn't really remember I was invisible for quite some time. I was riding along not caring about anything when this guy on the other side of the street really freaked out! He was like, "AHHHHH! The bikes are alive again!" an then he just ran off. I decided to get a nice, cool drink to wet my lips, so I went to Fred Meyer.
Another huge con to being invisible is that the doors (like in a big store) won't open for you, so for half an hour or so, I had to wait for someone to come and make the door open and finally, I slipped in.
I meandered a bit through the store as I picked up chips and a nice, refreshing, drink. By the time I was done walking around, I had almost forgotten my invisibility. I was checking out when the checker-outer person stops and stares at me, well, more like stared at the food I was holding, but it didn't really matter.
"Uh, hi. I'm invisible, so, uh, could, uh, you check out my food and pretend this never happened?"
\The man thought about this for a moment and then replied," It seems to me, you're a test subject of a scientist who works here, I think his name's Edward N. Brane, yes that's it I believe."
The man seemed like the honest type, "Um, thanks, I think, now would you be so kind to point Mr. Brane's general direction?" I ask. The man, Bill, (that's what his tag said) points to a guy making a cup of tea, definitely the shady type. I head his way and act casually as I order a beverage, he seems to be quite shocked when an invisible person orders some food, but he starts cooking the beans without question. When he's not looking, I think, I'll get him and question him later. I leap over the counter and tackle him and start spitting out question after question. He just chuckled and replied, "I see you're quite the curious about your invisibility; all I can tell you it's harmless, the rest is top secret information."
"But how did you get into my house?" I asked him, still looking for answers.
"The same way you do," he replied." I used the door.
I figured he was okay, so I let him go back to making me my drink. After that, I went around town invisible and did all sorts of things. One of the things you have to try when you're invisible is walking up on the local wildlife, like birds, for example. You can just walk right up to them without them knowing and then, "BOO!" you scare them all off. Finally, when it was getting dark, I was slowly becoming more and more visible. When I got back to my house, I was a normal kid. I took of my shoes and headed for the kitchen table, still thinking of my day...
One day I woke up and I was invisible, but of course I didn't know it until my little brother thought that our house was haunted.I got up because my dad woke me up for the last time.
"Get up the bus is going to be here in ten minutes," said my dad.
So I finally got up from my really comfy bed to get ready for school. When I went down the stairs to get breakfast I ran into my brother.
"Who touched my shoulder?" "Dad did you do that?"
I thought my brother was playing a joke on me, but I guess he wasn't.
"Are you up yet?" My dad asked.
I ran up the stairs to make it sound like I was coming down and said. "Yes, dad I'm up."
"The bus is coming get down here."
Since my brother didn't go to school yet I had to go out there by myself. When my dad went to answer the front door, so I ran out the back door so he would not see me leave.When the bus came it stop for two minutes so I tapped on the door [when it was stopped.] and the bus driver starred right at me and drove off. Looks like I had to walk. I was running first, but I kinda wished I ate breakfast because my stomach was growling. When I reach school I was so glad. I walked threw the school's doors and the principle and the secretary starred at me like they just saw a ghost.
"Must have been the wind the wind was bad when I came to school," the principal said.
"Yeah must have been the wind."
So if they didn't see me then I didn't have to get a tardy slip. When I was going up the stairs I saw some one following me I thought it was the principle trying to give me a tardy slip.So I ran up the stairs so he wouldn't see me, but he heard me.
I was at the corner and said,"It's just me."
"Okay come out from the corner, 'Someone'."
I walked out from the corner and he spoke to me.
"You can come out now."
"But I am out." He walked forward to me and grabbed my shoulder. "Let go of me!"
"Who are you?"
"Can you let go of me before I tell you."
I took off running to my class room. Every one was starring at the door opening by itself.
"Oh my gosh were being haunted!"
Then my teacher said "come down there is know ghosts in the school it was probably a kid who forgot there class room."
Then I sat down at my desk.
"Did you see that?"
"Stop fooling around."
The rest of the day went on normal, except when I raised my hand he never called on me.
When the bell rang kids came spilling out of the classrooms. I stayed in my class until the crowd left. I took my homework from my mailbox and left. When I walked out to get on the bus I thought he is probably going to play the same trick on me again. When he left the door open I went on the bus before he shut the door. When it was my stop he stayed a little while and left. I got up and said "You're skipping my stop!" He slammed on the brakes and opened the door.
"Are you off?"
"You can leave now."
I guess he must have thought I was a ghost. I checked the mailbox and went inside.
"Aaaaaahhhh, Dad there's a ghost."
"There are no such thing as ghost."
"But I just saw the door open. By its self."
"If there were ghost living in this house I'm pretty sure they would have got you all ready."
"Okay if you say so,dad." Said my little brother.
I set my backpack down and I went to my room and laid on my bed doing my homework.
When I was done with my homework I went downstairs.
"I wonder were your sister is?"
"I have not seen her all day,Dad."
"Maybe she went to her friends house to study."
After a little while it got boring listening to them so I left to my room. I shut my door and turned on my t.v. and watched a movie. I must have been watching a movies for a really long because I heard my dad coming to my brother's room.
I was lucky my dad didn't come in my room, he would be mad if he knew I was watching t.v. most of the day. After a couple more movies I went to sleep. When I woke up I went downstairs and to have breakfast.
"Yesterday we were being haunted by ghost!" "Oh, also can you make me a bowl of cereal?"
"Sure I'll make you cereal if you tell the truth."
"But I' m telling the truth even ask dad."
" Okay I will because I still don't believe you."
While I was making my brother cereal my dad came down stairs and said," Who wants bacon and pancakes?"
My brother said, "Me,I do!"
"But I'm making you cereal."
"Did you add milk yet?" My dad said.
"Then put it back in the box."
" Where were you yesterday?"
"I went to school then I came home."
My dad grabbed the bacon, pancake mix and two pans. Then I heard the sizzling from the bacon. That really made me hungry.After a couple of minutes my dad gave my brother and I two bacon pieces and the chose of one or two pancakes.
"Okay the bus is coming so you might want to hurry up and eat."
When the bus came I said, "How come you didn't stop at my house?"
"Because you weren't here."
"Yes I was."
Then I sat down at my spot. In know time we were at school.
"Were where you?"
" Are you okay?"
"Yeah I'm fine."
Then the bell rang and every one ran into the building. When it was math time I took out my homework.
"How do you already have the homework?"
"I got it yesterday."
After math my dad called the school and I got picked up to go to a dentists.
" After the dentists do you want to stay home or go to school?"
After the dentists appointment I went to sleep in the car. My dad shook me to wake me up to go in the house. I went to bed for the rest of the day.
I woke up one day and I could not see my legs, so I went to the bathroom and I could not see any part of my body. So I went downstairs to eat breakfast and my Mom screamed. My dad came down and said, "What's wrong?"
My mom said, "Look! There is a box of cereal in mid air. I put the box down and went behind my parents and ran around yelling things. It made my parents feel scared.
I thought that I would go outside and get an ice cream and then I saw a car drive by and it said ghost hunter capturing ghosts since 1845 to 2013. The guy was wearing a jump suit and it was ORANGE. I thought that it was someone that had broke out of jail. So I called the police and they asked if i had a picture of him and i said yes. So he asked me to bring him the picture I said ok then I hung op the phone and thought for a minute and I said wait I'm invisible. So then I wrote a note and it said Take this picture to the police station. My mom saw the note and read it, next thing you know she got in the car and before she drove off I held on to the car and she went to the police station.
At the station my mom showed the picture to a police officer and the police officer said that he escaped from jail. My mom also mentioned that I was missing for 10 hours now. The police officer said, "Do you have a picture of her?"
She said yes.
After we left the station we went back home. I was so sad I started to scream into my pillow. On the mirror in my room was a note it said " To change back say change me back 3x and then say now. I said it and next thing you know I could see myself again.
One day I woke up and I found out that I was able to be invisible. I thought I was dreaming but when I found out I had to go to school I knew that I was not dreaming. Then when I went to school I kept going invisible and I could not stop. The people in the class kept wondering where I went.
Then I went back to normal and asked if I could use the bathroom, just so I could get out of the classroom. People are so crazy when someone in the class goes invisible. They act like they have never seen someone go invisible. I guess they haven't seen anyone go invisible before, since today is the only day in the world that someone has gone invisible. That is the time I went invisible.
Since I can go invisible I can do a lot of things. Well, I can go invisible, that's something. Since I can do something, I'm going to use it.
One day I awoke in my bed. Everything was normal until I heard my brother say, "Where did Cameron go?" I was about to say that I was right in front of him when I saw a note. The note must have been written by a person in a rush, because it had horrible handwriting. The note said I would be invisible for a whole day! I was pretty amazed, probably a little too much, because I yelled, "I'm invisible!" loud enough to make my brother run in terror yelling, "GHOST! HELP ME!"
As I got ready for the day, I thought might as well scare someone if not at least find something to do with my invisibility. The first thing I chose to do was scare people. The first person, I grabbed his shoulder. He turned around and freaked out saying, "NO! Not again, not again!" I was beginning to think he was crazed because he fell and didn't move. I walked over checked for a pulse. There was a small pulse.
"What was he meaning again?" I said to myself.
"Just ignore it and help the man," I thought
He must have passed out from fright. I searched his pockets for a phone to use because mine was stuck inside, and I didn't want to scare anyone else at my home. When, I found a phone. It was in the middle of a call. He must have been talking to someone when I scared him. The person at the other end of the line must be terrified. I hung up and then dialed 911.
A voice operator answered, "911, where and what is the problem?"
"I found a man passed out on the street with a slow pulse...Could you hurry it might be slowing?" I said.
"You're going to have to tell where you are first," the voice answered.
"Oh yeah Um..." I looked about and saw a street sign' "I think I'm on Sunset Drive," I said.
"Okay. I am send the nearest paramedical unit towards your location."
I hung up, placed the phone carefully in his pocket, and walked away. I hid behind a tree to make sure the paramedics would get here on time and help him. I saw them come and load his body into the back. I snuck in and watched them perform CPR in case I ever scared someone else. I left as soon as I figured the steps. Once, I got out of the vehicle I caused an argument on someone pushing another.
Feeling a little stupid because I got lost on my way home I bumped into an older man. He looked like he was confused at first.
He said, "I know my eyes aren't as good as they were but what did I hit?"
Then he said, "Oh, I'm sorry must not have seen you at first. Sorry."
What was he talking about? I looked up at the sky I never noticed it was morning. I never even felt tired. I looked left and saw my house. How is that possible? I was in the middle of the street, I thought. Then, I was in my bed. Just, like that day never happened, and it was the same one again.
Then, my brother walked in and said, "Hey Cameron mom says you got to eat."
I walked out of my room into the living room and looked out the window and saw that one man. Was that a dream, or some reality that exists somehow? I notice a note in a room with small writing
"Not again," I thought.
Then, I noticed that it was just a sticky note posted on the fridge of the kitchen. It was for the groceries.
At least it isn't another invisible note. I walk into the dining room and ate my breakfast.
