Hi everyone, so as you may know today is the fifth day at STN and today is also the last day at STN. When we went to the closing ceremonies we weren't expecting that the results that came up would be this good. Why do I say this? This is because out of the nine contest we entered we made 8. This is a huge accomplish in the CkTV standards, no one was expecting us to do this good. Although there's more to this, we won three first place awards and two or three second place awards, and like three or four honorable mentions, but the other Hawaii schools did really well to. This is because the other schools also won first place awards and second place awards and some honorable mentions. So we think we did really good, and just to say this even I got excited over this, and I don't really get excited over things like this so it was a really feat to accomplish. Then we went to six flags and enjoyed some roller coasters, my favorite roller coaster was the Goliath, it was fun and scary but fun overwhelmed the scary parts. We were incredibly tired and some of us ended up passing out in the car. We also got to eat at I Hops, and their food was also good. So all in all, it was a great day!
Hey guys,today is the fourth day I've been at STN. Today was a real rush, because today was our day for our competition, PSA! It was more nerve recking instead of exciting because we had to do a breakout session before we got to start our PSA. So finally we get our topic, and it just made our hearts sink because it was a topic we weren't to familiar with something like this, but we just sticked together and did what we normally do, but we thought we were falling behind because our adrenaline was moving so fast that it felt like we were there for 1 hour. But we weren't and when we looked at the time when we were done filming we had 2 hours to spare! It was fun during that time, but I wasn't allowed to edit because there's only 2 people per group allowed to edit, so knowing my self being hungry and all I went to eat. I ended up eating 2 sandwhiches and 2 bags of chips, but this made my stomach up set because I ate to much eggs. Then about an hour passed and we were all good, so we tried to go to the break out session but everything was full, so we ended up waiting for couple hours.
Hey guys, today is our third STN day! When we woke up breakfest was already ready, so we ate breakfest and got ready to compete. Although my team is competing tomorrow not today, so instead of doing nothing we go out to break out sessions. The first breakout session I think was the one that Intrested me the most, and so I took a lot of notes. To me the time flew by as I was taking notes, this breakout sessions name was documentary interview. Although some other people in the group I was with didn't seem so happy. Then it ended, and we went to other breakout sessions that wasn't too exciting, and so I finally decided to go to the last breakout session today with my friends. This breakout session didn't really Intregue me but it was still the number one breakout session I went to today, this is because the person who was talking actually had personality, and he showed the most funny and heart warming to heart killing stories, that made us laugh and made others cry. This is why my last breakout session is the number one breakout session I went to. Finally after all of this we went to try and eat, but all of the restaurants said they would have to make us wait, so we decided to go to CNN's food court. We ate our fill and left. Then Mr.m reminded us that we had to go to the Amaris ceremonies for a contest that we didn't participate in, but it was worth it. There was awesome story's and psa's, and hawaii won 4 awards. It was the best, but finally today has come to an end and it is finally time to get some rest!
Hey guys, today was the second day in STN . Today's competition was the crazy 8's, and it was crazy indeed. Although there was good parts and bad parts to today's competition. Let's start with the good things, first both teams got their videos completed and turned in before the timer ended, and both teams videos seemed really good, I think we have a good chance at winning something from today's competition. Here's the other good news, everyone was kind and helped each other out, and we were able to go eat dinner with our pen pals, I decided to eat fried chicken and mash potatoes with gravy ontop, it was really good, but again nothing beats home cooked meals! Here is the bad news, unfortunately on the way to the dinner that we were going to eat with our pen pals killen lost his phone, and now is missing. All in all it probably wasn't that good of a day for Kallen but for the rest of us it was a exciting, and fun, but also stressful, and not to mention tiring day. Well today it was more of a tiring and stressful day than I think fun, but I still enjoyed today!
Hey guys so we left the air port after school yesterday, in order to fly to LA, so we can get to Huston, in order to get to Atlanta to participate in the STN. Everyone was fine with this three way flight, but on our first flight we got to LA one hour earlie, so we were able to get to eat breakfest and get water. Yet things still happened, because of the bad weather in Huston we had a two and a half hour delay so we were put behind schedule. Luckily our third flight also got delayed so we were still able to get onto that one, but it was yet another cramped flight that took 3 hours. So when we finally got off our last flight today it was already night, we went and grabbed our suit cases and got into a super shuttle, and off we went to the Marriott, but to our surprise a warning went out that there was a kidnapping. It's still in the back of my mind, but we thought it would be easy to just get our rooms, Utah the hotel wsn't ready for us, so a lot of groups had to wait quite a while to get our rooms or new rooms. In the end we were still able to get eat dinner and start to get ready for bed. Overall tho I think it wasn't a bit stressful but still fun in certain ways!
Hey it's me again guys, so my friends have been wondering why do I always do movie trailers for my second blog, well I am trying to listen to their advice and doing a reflection on the trip that's coming up. Well lets start off with what I hope will happen, I am hopping for lots of things, but one of the most things I am hoping for is that we get into the top 3 teams for our STN competition, and of course I hope that the other teams will also make it into the top three. Another thing that I hope for is that we have a great time when we go to the competition. Although hoping will never win it for you, here's what I think might happen. I think that some teams will make it into the top three teams for their category, and maybe some teams just behind the top three, but overall I think we will have a blast and have tons of fun. Well these are the things that I hope will happen, and what I think will happen. Again I am hoping we win, and may we have the best of luck...I hope!
Hey guys, today's blog topic is about stress. Everyone can have stress, the only difference is that some people can have more stress than others, especially when important days are coming up. Stress is something that can put physical and mental strain on your body. But I am going to tell you why I am stressing right now.
Well the first reason why I am stressing out right now is because there's only 3 days left until STN. Just this alone is putting stress on me because there's so much to do. Like doing my access homework that I am going to miss while I am away, and making up for my tests that I am going to miss. There is just so much to do in such a little time. This is my first reason why I am stressing out.
Another reason why I am stressing out is because I still have to pack and make sure I have all of my things. Now you may be like, why are you stressing out on packing? Well the reason why I am stressing out is because I need to have all the proper clothes, when I go on the trip, or else I will be the one odd ball because I am not wearing the same clothes that was designated to be worn on that certain day. Another thing that worry's me is that we will be going to Atlanta, and New York. So that is a lot of clothes that needs to be brought with me. Thats my second reason why I am stressing out right now.
My final reason why I am stressing out right now is because I am actually trying to get every single piece of homework that I have done. Now because we will be missing almost one whole week of school, I have lots, and lots of homework on my desk right now that needs to get done. The reason why I am trying so hard to get it done right now is because when I come back it will still be spring break, meaning I still have days to relax. So I just don't want those days to be taken up by my homework.
To sum this up, I currently have lots of things that stress me out, may it be just the trip coming up, or even just my personal mind set like wanting to get all of my homework done. These reasons are why I am stressed out and kind of going nuts.
Hey guys, so I was just board and came upon this movie trailer. It's called X Men- Apocalypse, and as you may know, its the follow up to the first movie X Men. Now this seems like an intense movie, almost like the avengers. There were certain things that caught my attention though. The first thing was the way they introduced the trailer, they give you part of an idea that something is going to be directed at the X Men. This is the perfect introduction because the way they made this movie trailer was like a mini book, it has a for sure beginning, middle and end, that was the second thing. But what really surprised me was that it seems like the evil villain from the last X Men movie, make a turn for the good, and try to save the world. Well thats what I like about this movie trailer, and if you want to know more, you can watch the movie trailer below.
Hey guys, today I'm going to talk about my passion. You may have figured what my passion was just by looking at the pictures above my titles. Yes, my passion is fishing. I do different types of fishing from dragging lures to dropping bait to entice the fish to bite. I think all of these things are fun because I enjoy the thrill of fighting a big fish.
I starting fishing when I was actually 3 years old. I started casting a rod with bait to catch fish. Eventually I started to enjoy the thrill of hooking a fish that was big enough to cut and snap my line. Though when I fished I had to start catching small fish like mamo. Then couple years later, I was able to target bigger fish like barracuda and papio.
I enjoyed fishing for many reasons that ranged on a wide variety, but the main reasons why I enjoy fishing so much is because of the thrill, and the fact that my family has been fishing for many generations. This allows me to have something in common with my whole entire famialy, cousins and all. This makes me happy, and these reasons are why I love to go fishing.
One thought that I had, was that, am I going to be fishing my whole entire life, and my reaction to that thought currently was yes. Thats because I love fishing and I am going to stick with this passion through out my whole entire life. Just like my cousin who's older than me and went to college and got a job, but he still loves to go fishing. So that was one of my questions answered, am I going to be doing this my whole entire life.
To sum this up, I started fishing when I was just a really small kid, and as I got older I started fishing in many different ways. But my famialy loves to fish too, so this kind of affects me in why I like to fish so much. But I won't be able to fish forever, because I still have college, but I still plan to fish when ever I get the opportunity.
Title: The Value Of Water- Water Conservation
What's my topic about?: My topic is about a boy who decides to waste water because he does not properly close his hose and sink properly, so all his water is wasted and all the water that he gets is gone.
Why I choose this topic?: I choose this topic because hawaii's water supply is limited, so if people waste hawaii's water supply eventually it could run out.
Who Am I recognizing?: I am recognizing my friend Brent who was in this video for helping me out with some of the editing with pointers, and for being in my film as a actor.
