My Weekend News 13/08/18

On Friday afternoon, I went to The Hub to have dinner at Wendy’s.

On Saturday, I went with my Nanna to a car park across the road from my Uncle’s car repair shop. I have been practising my reversing, parking, turning and stopping. It was my first time learning how to reverse and park. My Nanna told me I was really good at parking but sometimes one of the wheels of the car went onto one of the white lines. Also she said that I was good at reversing but it was a little bit fast because I pushed on the accelerator too hard, but after a while I got the hang of it and I started to reverse slowly. I also got better at parking after doing it a couple of times. 

Later on that night I applied for a job at Burger King again this time at Highland Park. I have applied for the Panmure one before but they said that they were looking for people who can work opening and closing shifts so I didn’t get the job.

On Sunday, I stayed home all day and played on my phone and computer.

My Weekend News 9/08/18

On Friday afternoon last week, I caught the bus to 2 Cheap Cars to have a look at all of the cars they had there. After that I went to Pizza Hut at The Hub to have dinner. Then I went to the bus stop outside Botany Towns Centre and I saw Bradley there. I said hi to him and we went on the same bus. While we were on the bus I showed him my learners license, he was so jealous of me. Then Bradley went off and I went back home.

On Saturday, I went to my Dad’s house for the night. We went to Snowplant in the North Shore because it was almost my brothers birthday. It was a big indoor snow facility with a big down skiing hill and a cafe at the bottom. I went down a little hill a few times on a tub. Later on that day we went to the movie theatre at the St Luke’s Mall and we watched a movie called Mission Impossible, it was very entertaining to watch.

On Sunday, me and my brother went back home to my mum’s place. In the afternoon on that day I went to Botany Towns Centre to have a look around. Then I went back home on the bus. I had a really awesome weekend.

Strength Training Review 09/08/18

Strength Training Review 09/08/18

Today in strength training Brooklyn and I did the DIYS challenge. It's a challenge where you have to think what you have to do independently without the teachers advice while in the gym. 

We started off with doing our stretches then we moved on to push ups and sit ups. Then we worked on our legs on the bikes. After that we lifted some dumbbells. Then we went on to the weight machines. First we did some arm lifting then we did some leg lifting. They were both very cool but I had to downgrade to 1 or 2 less weights on the arm one because I’ve overweighted from the other ones. 

Next after that we carried some weights around the strength gym room. I was pretty awesome at it. At one time I lifted two 15kg ones. Then we lastly did some arm pulling on the rowing machines.

Brooklyn and I where very cool in the gym we were the only ones who passed the DIYS. Everyone else got kicked out because they were not being safe in there.

Strength Training Review 03/08/18

Strength Training Review 02/08/18 

When I did strength training on the 02/08/18 I enjoyed lifting up the dumbbells. I really challenged myself to lift up the heaviest possible. One time I lifted up two 20kg ones.

Also I really liked the bikes even though my legs got tired after doing it a lot. But I tried to put it on the hardest possible speed and go as fast as I could.

Lastly I enjoyed doing rowing but it was a little bit hard to keep straight so I’ll need to work on that. But I’m getting used to pushing my legs out first before my arms and pushing my arms back in before my legs.

My July Holiday's

My July Holidays

On Monday week one, I went to the park across the road from Botany Towns Centre to meet up with a former teacher aid. His name is Robin and he used to teach me when I started at Sommerville 11 years ago. First we walked around the park chatting about how we’ve been and stuff. I’ve also told him that I’ve been learning how to drive and  I’ve got the learners licence. Then we went across the road to the mall and we had lunch there. While we were eating I saw Jane coming into the food court and we said" hi" to her. After we had lunch we walked around the mall and we had ice cream from New Zealand Natural. After that he took me home on the bus.

Later on, in week one on Saturday, I went for a driving lesson with my nanna on a new neighbourhood road where new houses are going to be built in Pukekohe. I’ve been practicing how to steer, stop and give away.

In week two, on Thursday night, I went to the Stardom with my uncle and my brother to look at Mars through a telescope. We also saw how the galaxy appears on that night. When we got there we had a look around in there at all of the displays before we went into the theatre room. Then a guy explained about our galaxy and some of the planets we have around it. After the show the guy said that we can’t go and look at Mars through a telescope because he said it was too cloudy. We got some special voutures  to come back for another visit.

On Saturday week two, I went to New Plymouth with my Dad and brother for the night.  It took us about 5 hours to get there and we had to stop at a park on the way there. When we got there we went to my other nanna’s house and we had dinner there. Then we went to my Dad’s brother's house and we stayed the night there. The next day we got up and we went back home. I had a really awesome holiday.

My Weekend News 05/07/18

On Friday afternoon, I got out of my taxi at home and then played on my computer for a bit before I got ready to go out.

After I got ready I went to my local bus stop and waited for a bus to come. The buses I usually take are 72m, 72c and 734.

When a bus came I tagged on and sat in a seat next to a window. The bus I went onto this time was 72m.

When I got to my destination, which was Botany Towns Centre, I hopped off and went across the road to The Hub and I had dinner there.

After I had dinner I went back across the road to the Botany Mall and I had a look at some shops. Then I caught a bus home.

On Saturday, I caught another bus to the Manukau Mall.

First of all I got changed and walked up to my local bus stop again like the day before. Next I had to get a bus from my local bus stop to the Botany Mall. Then I had to get one from there to the newly built Manukau Bus Station. 

When I got there I walked from the bus station to the Manukau Mall.

Next I went inside the mall and had lunch at the food court. Then I had a look inside some of the shops. After that I went back home by bus again.

On Sunday, I just stayed home all day and played on my phone and computer. 

I had a really awesome and fun weekend.
