For all of those people who don't know already, Mr. Dorland is my teacher. In fact he is the best teacher ever, y'all should be jealous (I'm not westerns btw). Mr. Dorland has helped me alot this year, and I'm not saying that just because he's my teacher and he helps me with my work but I'm saying it because he has helped me emotionally too. I see Mr. Dorland as a father to me because I literally trust him with my life. I can talk to him about anything! I have had Mr. Dorland for a teacher for 2 years now and I'm proud to say that because he is the best teacher ever. Mr. Dorland isn't your average teacher, he is the teacher you've always wanted, he strict when it comes to school work and caring and understanding otherwise. I honestly wouldn't be the same person I am today with out him because he has carried me through so much emotionally and without him I wouldn't be able to handle it all. If you ever need a guy to talk to he is the right choice because even though you might've done something wrong, we will look at it on what you do right and will never judge you, EVER! You will vent to him and all he will do is understand if you don't want him to ask you anything and you just want to get something off your chest. He is the kind of guy who will care for you no matter what happens because that's the sort of guy he is. I'm super sad to say that I won't have him as a teacher because it will be hard without him there, I will always come down to talk to him after school though because I don't think I can get through school with out the shoulder that he has given me to lean on so many times. Much love to you Mr.D! <3
Today Dallas Yellowfly came into out classroom. I've seen him last year so I was pretty excited on what he was going to present today. He taught me that the aboriginals don't like to take more then whats needed from the earth. He showed 2 aboriginal stories, 1 scary story and 1 funny one. they funny one was a skit and they asked for 3 volunteers and i was picked and I played a princess in how the raven stole the sun. Today was super fun
people need to learn that the littlest things people do to others hurts there heart more than its already hurt. People say things that they don't think effects the other person but it does dramatically. Some people don't even know they do it, people can get away with it but the other person gets emotional scars because the more they get called things the worst the emotional scars get. So be careful of what you say to people.
Over the winter break my favourite thing I did was SLEEP. I basically slept in every day til 10-11 am and walking around in my pyjamas all day. So I am here to tell you what I did other than that because sleeping is fun for me but boring for you to here about me sleeping cause you know....Anyways. I had a triple sleepover with my friend, I went over on Tuesday and slept over for Wednesday, then slept Wednesday to Thursday, then she came over to my house for New Years; Thursday to Friday. it was fun. New Years are really fun to me listening to music until the countdown. The countdown is my favourite part because there are literally 10 seconds til the next year, doesn't that get you excited. My favcourite songs of 2014 are
I died my hair blonde at the bottom (ombre) with blonde caramel highlights.
OH I ALMOST FORGOT STARBUCKS, I LOVE MY STARBUCKS. I HAD IT SO MANY TIMES YOU DONT EVEN KNOW. sorry that was so straight forward BUT I DO LOVE ME SOME STARBUCKS.
The male ballet dancer stereotype is a big deal to me because people call them nasty words like "gay, weird, ugly" and its just wrong. One dancer named David Allan at age 11 was thrown down a staircase because he did a ballet performance in white tights so everyone was making rude comments and I find that terribly wrong in so many ways.
There is a film called Billy Elliot about an 11 year old dealing with comments and trouble thrown at him just because he was a male ballet dancer and its isn't "normal" as they say. People should do whatever makes them happy and not get judged for it. My best friend in dance is a boy and he is in my ballet and jazz class and there is nothing wrong with that, it is perfectly "normal" and I respect his chose of dance and there will nor ever be a problem ever.
There is a point (aha get it) in your life when you are in ballet for many years, so you upgrade to a higher level and you wear a shoe wear you stand on your very top of your toes, don't worry you have a little padding for your toes. Next year I will be trying out for point. I am hoping I get to learn pointe :) There is one downside to point though, it makes you have really gross feet :/
