Alright, this is going to be my first Writing Club Journal Entry. Lots of pressure thinking that I dedicated this blog to all my English teachers and all my Writing Club buddies!!! Ok, where do I begin???
First of all, I want to take this opportunity to congratulate certain people:
1. Priscilla Manuel and the S.C.O.P.E. team at PSB for their success so far in preparation for S.C.O.P.E. 2010 (formerly known as TSA)! I’m sorry that I won’t be able to make it on the actual day of the race but I do wish you all the best!
2. Owen and Becky of Science Club for their inspirational achievement at ISPO!!! We wish you all the best in Brazil!
3. Writing Club (Me, Becky, Willa, Natasha, Karin, Erico, Silvia) for making it this far in Writing Club and surviving! Let’s work harder towards creating better writings!
With all that said, let’s hear about the highlights of my week!
The travel writing competition that I’m organizing together with the 8th grade writing club people (Becky, Erico, Silvia) has had its ups and downs. But of all the downs, Thursday’s training session was the biggest train wreck! I thought having a game would be a good idea and that everyone would be happy, and that if one of the splits would go wrong, it would be mine, the lecture. But I WAS WRONG!!! Why did the fun activity go more disastrous than the boring one. Was it because the games were lame or was it cause I was such a good public speaker (but I don’t think so)? I don’t know, but whatever it is, if you’re wondering why we just have to have another session on Wednesday, you might want to blame it on Thursday’s disasters.
Ok, since this blog is quite new, let me let you in on basic facts about me. I’m your not-so-typical guy from Santa Laurensia Junior High School who’s crazy enough to set up a writing club! I just moved in to this school from PSB Singapore School, which the environment by the way, are WORLDS APART!!! I call my life in PSB as my “old life” and my life in Laurensia as my “new life”, note that there was nothing wrong with my “old life”! I’ll be using these two terms often in this blog!
I’m one of those few kids who are crazy enough to say that teaching is my passion and I would like to be either a Maths or English teacher when I’m older. Me teaching Writing Club and my iPSLE students will serve as the start of my teaching career.
You’ll most likely get to know me more as this blog goes along.
