It’s the end of the Triskele Rivers 2016. I am sad that the program is ending, I had a lot of fun this year and learned a lot. We got to go to so many amazing place such as OMSI, Punch Bowl Falls, Wahclella Falls, and the book store (that was my favorite). We also got to volunteer at several cool places such as the animal shelter and our local water alliance. And just yesterday we went down to the water and picked up trash. I really feel like we helped this year and that makes me feel accomplished. Overall, I felt like this was an incredible year well spent. Since this is my last blog I will just go over really all the activities that I am currently working on.
I am currently reading the second Harry Potter book. Lately my reading has really slowed down. Usually I would be disappointed because I love reading. The reason I have not been reading as much is because I am doing a lot of other activities. My life still focuses on reading and fantasy worlds so I will always find time to read. Back to what I was saying earlier, I am reading the second Harry Potter book and its amazing! I love J.K. Rowling’s writing style and find it rather (read previous word in British accent) interesting. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
The next thing I have been working on lately is mountain biking. I am currently biking more than ever. Today will be my seventh day in a row. I usually don’t keep track with how much of something I do, but this year I have set a goal. My goal is to go on at least 60 mountain bike rides this year. So far I am at 28 rides.
My story that I am writing right now is growing and improving. I am glad about that. I have the basic idea of how I want the story to unfold but I am really just writing as I go. I downloaded a writing app on my phone. The apps useful because there are so many beginner writers like me and most are willing to give feedback on my stories so I can improve.
Earlier today, the class at Triskele Rivers watched a movie called Happy. The movie explored what makes people truly happy. It was one of the most interesting documentaries we have ever watched in my opinion. The difference between happy people and depressed people was crazy. A lot of it just had to do with where they worked and lived. A lot of the people that lived in big busy cities were more depressed then people who lived in more relaxing places. I recommend you watch it, it’s call ‘Happy’ and it’s on Netflix.
