Week Overview

Monday- I had maths as per usual. Then I became little red riding hood, haha. I went to do some shopping for my grandma as she isn't very well :(

Tuesday- I had to do all my arts award home work and sort out my folder because it was all cluttered. Then I met my other grandma in town because I had to do christmas shopping whaay! Not long now:D Afterwards we walked up to arts award. I don't know if you know but there is a panto on every year in Nottingham. This year is peter pan and its got Su pollard, David Hasslehoff and Barney Harwood in! My college has a big drama room so the whole cast were rehearsing including the celebs! I met them all and spoke to them and got a photo with Su!!
i had to scribble out my face because i was doing  a huge cheesy smile and i looked strange..
Wednesday- why can't I remember what so ever what I did? HAHA.

Thursday- I have done some preparation for my science practical that I am going to do tomorrow. It's about teeth. We went to the butchers round the corner from my house and got a piece of bone. It took me ageeeeeeees to cut it up though because you have to cut them into small teeth like shapes. Then for the experiment, you soak them in different drinks, I have chosen, full fat coke, diet coke, an energy drink, apple juice and lemonade. You leave them in the drink overnight and then review what damage it has done to the "teeth".  Tomorrow I will finish the experiment and write up a conclusion.

So a view over my week......

Monday-I spent doing maths, eugh & i still had homework! Haha.

Tuesday-After having much trouble trying to log on to my online photography course, I email the course people and it turns out there was a random 5 in the middle of my password, hence why I couldn't log on! Anyway I finished two of my 14 units in that course. I don't know if you remember how I was saying about my arts award class? But anyway I finished my practical project with the help of some very nice people. You should check out Lucy's blog "Lucy's blog link x"
writing love with sparklers!
Wednesday-I had 2 hours of dance rehearsals because I am going to perform at evolution dance show next week. I also did some Spanish and I finished off my Maths homework.

Thursday- I had another hour of dance and I wrote a review, which took a long time! (see previous post)

Friday- Today is film club and I just made some Irish soda bread. It's actually very easy to make, it its turned out OK, i think x

WOW! I haven't posted for a month! Sorry! Today I have been busy writing a review for a show I went to see last weekend. Here you go;
Cirque Du Soleil
           On the 9th of November, I attended Cirque Du Soleil, Algeria. I went with my grandma when they performed at the Capital FM arena in Nottingham.
          Cirque Du Soleil have many different stage routines, Alegria, Totem and many more. Alegria, which is the show I saw, is classed as a contemporary circus. They have lots of different small performances in the show. They had trapeze artists, fire breathers, contortionists, clowns etc.
         I chose to go to this event because they are a very famous group of performers and it’s probably a once in a lifetime opportunity.
        The things I found the best were the trapeze artists, although they had safety ropes, it was still fascinating how they managed to do it. I love all the fast dynamics. Also, I found the clowns really amusing. There were 3 clowns altogether and they made some very simple routines, with no speech just noises, into really funny acts. My favourite was one about a paper aeroplane. I mean who would think you could make a good; laugh out loud stage show with a piece of paper?
         On the other hand, there wasn’t anything I strongly didn’t like however I did think the 2 girls contortionists act went on for too long but that’s probably because I prefer quick, dramatic things rather than slow, still acts.
        The show that I visited was at 4pm so it was full of mainly 40+ however I heard the later show was mainly 40 and below. Personally I would recommend it to anyone above the age of 10 because it has things for all ages to enjoy.
The next event I want to go and see is a concert! Again, at capital FM arena but this time, Jake Bugg is performing in February!

Last week

On Wednesday I went ice skating with the home ed group. I haven't been ice skating for a long time to say that I used to go every week! Where I live, It's been so cold and rainy :( I don't mind the cold because you can snuggle up warm in big jumpers, but I don't like rain. On Thursday I stayed at home and did an online grammar course. Friday was allotment day with Lucy. It was still raining. I mainly stayed in the greenhouse haha. Today is maths, in the rain. :(

Arts Award.

So I just got back from my arts award. It was great. I've decided to do photography. I'm going to do it in the dark with glow sticks so it like blurs. I can't remember the actual name but this is an example.
Like this!

So that is what I'm aiming to do but more writing maybe? You basically just wave the glow sticks in the pattern you want and you have to slow down the shutter speed on the camera and take the photo. But it won't get dark at the right times until the end of October. So in the weeks whilst I'm waiting i'm going to make a stop motion video on my phone. this is one I made ages ago. I'm the ginger one haha. I learnt from that video that I moved my mouth to much so I'm going to try and keep my mouth in one position next time&try and keep the lighting the same because that was an issue in the Bruno mars video.

So until Christmas, I have to keep a journal type thing and document what I do. Then at the end I can read back through what I've done!x

This weeks plan!

Today I've got to cut out some bunting for my curtain  but I won't have a lot of time because we have to go out at lunch time. Then later tonight I'm going to "college" as dad calls it. But it sort of is college. I'm doing a arts award. You go every week, and choose what you want to spend your time doing, I've chosen photography, but you can do whatever from dancing to drawing. Then you study your chosen topic and do lots of research and practical lessons. Right now, I'm on bronze but you work your way up to gold and then at the end you get a qualification! I'm looking forward to starting it tonight!

Then i'm staying at my grandmas again tonight so tomorrow I can do some more sewing! On Wednesday, I'm going ice skating with my friends from home ed. We go the second Wednesday in every month. I used to go ice skating every week. I had lessons. But they were really expensive and they were very early on a sunday. I DON'T DO EARLY MORNINGS hahaha! The levels in ice skating go from 1 to 10 the bronze silver gold-dance and bronze silver gold-free. I did free till gold and then missed a fews weeks and then never really got back into it :(

On Friday I have film club. I'm not sure what we're watching but I'll let you know:) I think I'm going to try to get down to the allotment aswell with Lucy. You should check out her blog! We are going to do a blog about our allotment. ALLOTMENT BLOG. It's called urbanic allotment. Thats because its urban&organic!

Thanks for reading!xxxxxxxxxx
