My Little Bother (I mean brother)

"Toreka!" yelled my little brother,"Mum wants you!"
"Wait!" I shouted back, "Tell Mum that I'm writing an email." I could see my brother run in to my parents' room and then back out.
"She still wants you." he said ,"NOW!!"

Oh no, my pen pal would have to wait. I ran to my mum's room as fast as I could.

Hopefully she wouldn't make me do something extremely painful, like clean my room or do chores. "What are you doing?" she said firmly.
"I-I-I-I'm on the computer." I stammered. Shivers slithered up my spine.

"Clean your room!!" she yelled. Clean my room??? If you've been in my room with out an invitation, you'd understand what I'm talking about.

With out a word I put one foot after the other. "Why?!" I groaned. I opened up my door and my younger brother stood there mocking me saying, "Why?" in a high sarcastic voice. Normally, I'd laugh. But today I couldn't be bothered. "Get ouuuuuut" I moaned. "Fine" he said "But I'm taking this." And just like that, he took my jewellery box, ran to his room, and slammed the door. I put my head against his door, I could make out the words he said, " Oooo, Look at me, I'm a girl."

Angrily, I pushed open his door to find everything of mine on the ground. That was the last straw. I was about to tackle him when he held out his arms and said " W-w-wait!!! Mummy wants you!!" Typical. I went to her and told me to clean up my mess from HIS room. I went back to him he whispered, "Just joking."

Totara Springs Camp

In the holidays I went to Totara Springs kids camp. Me and my friends have been waiting a long time for this . We went on Monday the 27Th of September.

As soon as we got there we rushed out of the Robbie bus. That's the bus name . When we got out we run off and started playing games. First we had to get our bags. Then we went to see our room it was big, not that big but it was nice. Were got to pick where we would sleep. So we made our beds. I was sleeping next’s to my best friend Athena.

After that we went to go and play games. The games that we got to pick was out of shooting ,golfing, bikes and .flying fox. They were all fun but I picked shooting at a target. As soon as I went to where we were going to do our shooting. I saw 2 guns and a man called Andrew standing there. I was shocked and happy at the same time. I was the 2ND one there,but first to shot the gun.

As soon as we finished playing our games, we got told that we were going to the pool hydro-slide. We were so happy. Our group ran to our room and got changed. We ran down to the hydro-slide to be first, but as soon as we got there we had to wait for leaders. So we did. 5 minters later. Ya they are coming. Then the gates opened and we ran down the steps. When the water started running we had to wait about 20 or 30 seconds. Everyone waited and waited. Then she said we could go down. It was a lot of fun. Our group was first in but last out.

After the hydro-slide we all raced to our room to get some dry clothes on. When we finished getting changed, our lunch call came out. We put our shoes on and walked over to the dinning room.

Well we all had a fun time at camp. If you ever get a chance to go to Totara Springs go you will have a lot of fun.

Preparing For White Sunday

Preparing for White Sunday wasn't what I had in mind for the holidays.

As I reflected back on to the previous White Sunday (which we call colourful Sunday)not good. I mean 2 hours of practice on a daily basis, not the thing you would want to experience. If you are wondering why then you should read more of my story.

After an exhausting practice for 2 hours a feeling weakness began to spread through my body. My legs were straining like I just crossed the finish line of the Cross Country and my arms were dangling down the chair I was sitting on.

I had, had enough of this torturing practice. Every day I get up and I feel reluctant to get ready. I had to stop this nonsense or I'll be a flat pancake because I had been practicing for 8 days now!

After practicing on the 8th of October I learned that moaning wouldn't do any good or schedule practice on another day. I was told that by our church senior pastor.

Okay so I learned not to moan the hard way.I should of told my tutor how I felt about having practices daily.I actually felt selfish at that moment thinking of everything bad I had done. Next time I should think before I say".

Freaky Jungle Walk at Camp

SWISH!SWISH! As the wind was blowing my hair the jungle went SILENT! The trees swayed side to side as my shoes smushed in to the gooey, slimy mud!! “Err “ I said shaking like an earthquake!! It was the third night of Totara Springs camp!!

“H-H-hey!” I stammered, patting Thearesa’s shoulder! “ I think I saw something” I said . “W-W-What was it” she replied , shaking me like a vibrating phone! We both briskly looked in front of us until......... “Aaaaa!!” an ugly, wild gorilla scared us!! My heart felt like it was about to STOP!! “This was a bad idea” I murmered.

As my eyes started to clog up with tears, I could hear the dew drops falling to the ground. “Come on girls!” Cara ( Our leader ) said. “ We can’t stop NOW!” Unexpectedly the rope started to quiver!! But that wasn’t all. The foot steps off someones shoes started to get closer and closer. “OMG! Who's that?” Thearesa exclaimed.

“ Arrrrgggghhhh!” we screamed , getting water blasted in my face. By then my eyes started to get bigger and bigger as we got closer to the end!DROP!DROP! I started to freeze up like an slippery ice-cube! “ Im freezing!!” I said as we walked up the unseen stairs!

“Oga Boga!” I heard, as the lights were expanding! The tribe were teaching the kids songs that they had sung many years ago. I had thought!” WHERE HERE!!!” I heard Cara scream ! Thearesa had finally let me go QUICKLY getting a nicProxy-Connection: keep-alive
Cache-Control: max-age=0

HOT chocolate and a chocolate biscuit!

At the end of it all I thought that going through the jungle was an experience. Even though some people weren’t wanting to do it, they still took part! I was So relieved that I had got through it!!
