book reveiw:

A book that I've read recently is Forgotten by Cat Patrick. I really enjoyed this book because it's so original. it's about a girl called London who can see her future, but not her past. she can see the future in flashes, like we would see our memories. For example, she can see what she will wear tomorrow, but can't remember anything about yesterday. So she records everything about her day and everything she'll need to know the next day in her notes.

London starts to 'remember' a funeral sometime in the future and she's not sure who it's for. So naturally, she begins to panic, until she figures out the funeral is in her past, not her future. What she's seeing is her family burying her younger brother who she can't remember. Her mum chose to let her forger her brother, instead of facing the pain of remembering him. But London decides she owes her brother to at least remember him.

I really loved this book, and so did all my friends when they read it.

poem: haiku

Cocconed in my duvet,
Already forgot my dreams.
Dont want to get up.

most inspiring teacher:

A teacher that inspired me was Mrs Irwin. She was my teacher for two years in intermediate. She inspired me to do well in high school. She pushed me to be my best in year 7 and 8. I still go back to talk to her about my achievements at high school.

Olympic opinions:

The Olympics is the pinnacle of any athletes career. They train all their life for the chance to represent their country at the worldwide event. There is a wide range of sports to compete in, so any kind of athlete can compete. One sport which is not included in the games is netball, even though it is played by many people all around the world... so why isn't it included in the Olympic games?

The main reason is that netball is that netball is predominately a woman's sport, although there are some men's teams. Also, the fact that it isn't necessarily a global sport is a contributing factor to its omission. However, netball has been played at the Commonwealth games since 1993. It's staggering that netball has been overlooked in the Olympics, when a movement to include the game failed. Although woman's boxing succeeded as it has been included in the 2012 Olympics. Maybe we should push to get netball included in the next Olympics.

olympic moment-

One of the greatest moment in Olympic history was when the Olympic Gymnastics team won the gold for the USA in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. The event is known as the Magnificent Seven, referring to the gymnastics team; Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Dominique Dawes, Kerri Strung, Amy Chow, Amanda Borden and Jacie Phelps.
I think this is a great Olympic moment because on Kerri Strung's first vault routine, she badly injured her ankle and had to be carried off the mats. But in order for her team to have a chance at the gold, she had to do a second vault routine. And she did! Even with her injured ankle, she still carried out the vault perfectly, running through the pain and sticking the landing on both feet flawlessly. She then had to be carried to the medals podium by her coach.
I think it's pretty amazing that Kerri was able to compete even when she was so injured. Any other person could have just said "No. I just can't do it." She showed real determination and true Olympic spirit.
