My first week in Middle School was really busy I rarely had time in between classes.Also, there are new teachers, new classes, new rules, new friends, and of course new activities. I think that a metaphor is when you compare a thing you don’t really have a clear picture of, with a thing you are sure you now about. The way I chose my metaphor is because since we are in Bangkok and the city was busy and there are a lot of cars, that made me come up with the idea of  choosing a city as my background and the base for my metaphor. The connection of middle school with my metaphor is since  I never came  to middle school, its as if I walk into a city I never visited (except for bridge day.) Another connection, is that middle school is busy and there are a lot of people talking so that compares to cars honking their horn nosily.

I think that the best part about grade 4 was that I was lucky to have a awesome teacher like Ms.Bellone. Ms.Bellone is so nice our class has special privelages like playing games getting homework passes. I think everybody in my class agrees.

I have made lots of friends in the time I have been here and I fit very well my class, I think that having friends is very important in life.

I think that being in 4th grade means quite a lot because next year we are 5th graders at the very top of elemantary school and the little kids look up to us like giants.

A very fun part was the 4th grade book awards we found out which books got voted the winner in there topic it is fun because we did not know who won so it was a surprise.

Bye till next year adam

I think that some areas of the world are richer than others, because of what kind of people live there, and what kind of taxes they pay. In america, the government lives mostly of the taxes of the people. While in richer countries, there are less taxes, indicating that the governments in those areas are poorer. In short, the governments depend on the people to make themselves richer.

Unlike painting or going to dream world, for almost all of the boys, today was their first time ice-skating. Even though it wasn’t easy, they were not afraid to get back on the ice and keep on trying. My buddy, Bon, fell countless times. However, he managed to laugh about it and get right back up to keep on skating. Bon was determined to learn how to skate by himself, with no help from the penguins, despite how challenging it may be. When I told him to take a break, he sat down only for 5 minutes or so, then wanted to get back on the ice. His attitude and determination to get the hang of something completely new amazes me. After 2 hours, he’d gotten so much better. It makes me smile to see him finally able to skate around the rink. He himself felt proud to have accomplished something that is so challenging. I’ve seen and learnt a lot today. Although it was also my first time ice-skating, i’d have to say it wasn’t easy but it was an experience worth having. A lot of falling occurred today, however those boys taught me to just laugh it off and keep on going.

Like the day before, we headed for Dream World with not as much adrenaline as I hoped I had. The kids were definitely pumped up for enjoying the many rides, concessions and attractions at Dream World. Once we got there, it felt like the first day all over again. All the kids were lined up and we had to go choose our buddy for the day. The kids that were much smaller and younger than the ones from the day before, therefore, were a tad bit too excited. I decided to take care of Chai, an eccentric and comical 5-year old. We waited by the green benches in front of Dream World as we waited for Mr. Harned to give us our tickets. During that time, I bought little-Chai a can of Coke and a bag of Chips. The little guy was very thankful and even began to brag to his friends. (I was the first one to by him a snack). Sooner enough, we received our tickets for Dream World and headed inside.

What was waiting for our little group (Spencer, Jonnie, Paul and their buddies) did not surprise us. Since, we rode all the rides the day before and had a basic idea of how long the rides take, we knew the pace in which we had to move in. We took the boys through Dream World in this fashion: Big World, Haunted Mansion, Viking, Sky Coaster, Racing Cars, 4D Adventure and Snow Town. The most memorable moment was definitely Snow Town because of how surprised I was by the coldness. Living in a country that has no snow and temperature lower than 10 degress Celcius, I went to Snow Town with very low expectations. However, Dream World’s ability to emulate the coldness that I missed not only surprised me but also really gave me the chills! After Snow Town, an hour of sledding and snow man building, we headed back to the bus. The kids were very tired but I knew that we have built a friendship that day.

GCW Street Boys

This GCW event was about taking orphan boys to Dream World, Ice Skating and participating in various activities inside schools. Everyday from 7 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon, the GCW Street Boys crew would take each boy as a buddy and participate in various activities. This happened from February 13th to February 17th.

To start off, this GCW trip was a first for me as I am new to ISB. To be completely, I was not really into the idea of having a week of school as I am junior. However, I realized that after this week, GCW was probably the most relaxing, least demanding, and worthy week off compared to a break. This is because by hanging out and helping the boys with my friends, time flew by quickly and I also earned valuable community service hours. The GCW Street Boys was not very demanding as well and very laid back. I am looking forward to my next GCW.

The most memorable moment of GCW Street Boys was Ice Skating at Esplanade Complex. I found this trip to be the most worthy compared to other events because I was able to use my skills to help people who do not have this skill. I am an ice-hockey player and this gave me an advantage as I was able to teach what I knew to the boys. Seeing my buddy, Chai, learn to skate made me feel accomplished and proud. Also, helping out my friends, who are not very familiar with ice-skating, added on to the proud feeling I had after the trip. From this event, I received 5 hours of community service hours and compared to the other trips, I felt that this trip was by far the most well-earned because of the feelings I had after the trip.

Another memorable moment of GCW Street Boys was going to Dream World (twice!). As soon as the bus stopped in front of Dream World, not only did nostalgia hit me but also the excitement of the boys expressed in screams and anxiety. Going through all the rides and helping the kids to overcome their initial fear of extreme rides made me feel like a parents. This also helped to understand the hardship my parents had to go through in order to allow me to have fun. Thankfully, the kids were fearless and participate. However, Chai was not able to participate in some of the rides because of his height limit. Hopefully next year, he can enjoy the rides such as Viking and the Sky Coaster.

All in all, this GCW trip was a blast. I had a great time helping these kids out and learned a great deal about being the elder person. I also realized that I had a long way to go to become a more responsible person. I am grateful that I did this trip and hopefully do this trip once more because I would love to see Chai scream his lungs out on the Viking with me on his side.
