Food tech 2018

 On our first week of food tech, we made multicoloured cupcakes. It wasn't the best for me, but at least I got to bake it for the first time and it looked good. Next time if I had the chance to make these I would love to bake them better and to make sure they are cooked properly. Preparing all the ingredients, and making it to the right measurements for the cupcake liners was hard a bit for me because it was hard to get them al the same size. But at the end of the day, they were kind of nice.
The second week of food tech, we got to back Peach cobbler. It was a cinnamon cake with peaches on top. It had no flavour to it on the inside, but it was nice and crispy on the outside. For me I would like to make this again but nicer and more presentable to the audience. I would like to do this again for special occasions when it is the right times for this cake.

Last of all, we got to make macaroni salad. This was so delicious to me, because it had a lot of flavour to it, and it was the first time making this in our group, next time I would just make the pasta properly.

Social Studies Goal

My goal for 2018 Social studies would be, me to focus on my school work and to finish all of my work on time, to the standards of the teacher.  That means I have to stay on task all the time, & to accomplish more. Other reasons why I should try at least finish all my work on time is so I could aim higher than my results already are meaning I would like to get at least one or more excellence's for each class. For me to achieve this I should sit next to the right people, so I don’t get distracted. Also I should
focus on myself, so self management, meaning I should do my own work not any others.

  • Always to be on time.
  • To be on task.
  • Not get distracted from others.
  • Listen to the teacher to finish on time.
  • Be engaged.
  • Adding more information to my stories to make it interesting.
  • For me to get a better grade higher than achieve.

My 5 dreams to succeed!!

My 5 dreams could rule the world someday. What I’m about to write to the world is my five dream plans. I know some might happen and some might not, but if I accomplish one of my dreams that would be amazing. I’ve learnt from my failures and carried on to the best, today i’m dreaming big. My imagination is going all out on my dreams. This is what I am dreaming on to be right now, I am going to aim for that goal to try and achieve it, even if I might not like it enough that I think it is, I'm still going to give it a go. Because the 5 year old me wanted to become a traveler, so i'm going to become one before I judge it on my opinion.

My first dream would be to become a traveler, and to go around the world and explore new and different things. By being a traveler I would like to learn different cultures, meaning trying their language out, what they would eat, what they wear. For example Indian people have a lot of different types of things to us New Zealanders, like their Henna, it’s like having a beautiful piece of artwork on your hand like a tattoo but in their culture, see what I mean I've learnt something new already.

Number two. My second dream is to become a counselor. Do you know why? Well let me tell you some reasons why I would love to become a counselor. I would like to be a trustful person to younger generations, so they have someone to speak to about their problems, or if they need help with something. I would be that responsible person to help these young kids, young generations get through their schooling without any problems happening around the environment or in their homes. I would love to see more students and children around happy, because they deserve to be happy.

Toru, (Number 3.) I would love to make my parents proud, not because I have to, but I want to. I love my parents so much, I would do anything for them. You know what I could make my parents proud of me for. Well I can make them proud of me by being the first person in my family to graduate school and college. I want to be the first one who goes to school everyday and not miss once. I want to be the good child in the family, I want to be good like my parents say I am. I want to achieve all my goals so I can move forward, to the future and make the best of it.

Number 4. If I dont succeed in my 1st, 2nd and 3rd dream I would always go for my next dream. That dream is helping people in need, meaning homeless people, if people need help with medical care and all that. I would love to help them out by giving back. Some elders on the streets should not be where they are now, because if I look at the elders on the street, I think to myself where are all the grand kids, or kids to the elders. Why aren’t they helping them out with just a little bit, they don’t need that much all they might ask for is a few change to get them back on their feet again. So I would love to be a charity supporter for homeless people.

Fifth and final dream is to be free while i’m young. I would want to run free like cheetahs, Jump like kangaroos again and Swim like dolphins. I want to be a kid again, I want to be a child that could still do those things, but no i’m stuck in college for 3 more years, so I should make the most of it now, while i’m youngish. I would want to go places in Auckland before I head out to further places in Nz, I would want to go camping in the forests some place, I want to be trusted, so I can go out places. I just want to be the silly, shy, crazy goofy old me again. This is what I call me !! YOUNG, WILD & FREE!!

Day 4: Hitting a High Note… Activity 2: Playing Games

I have chosen Poi Rakau as the game I am writing about. Poi Rakau is a small group cooperation game using rākau passing to improve hand eye coordination. Pass and catch. Pass the rākau with out dropping it or hitting other players. Two rules for this game is no dropping the Rakau on purpose, leave it standing up, also listen to the caller, or you would not hear it and do the instruction wrong.
