Quote of the Day: "Many hands make light work.
Morning Class: This morning 1A had intro to bikes, with Mr Dooley. First of we had to check ABC which stands for Air, so check the air in the wheels, Brakes, stands for B were you have to check if your brakes work properly and C stands for chain, so we had to check if our chains were moving smoothly. Once we checked if our bikes were working we needed our bright vest, bike gloves and helmet. Then we went for a test run around the walking track twice, then came back together and did some excursuses, the first one was where Mr Dooley put about 7 cone about 1 mitre apart and then a box at the end, and we had to weave through the cones and then go inside the box and we timed then and I got 16 seconds. After we had to ride down the hill but there is a twist, there were 3 line the first line was the starting line, so you start at the first line and then when you get to the second line you have to roll down the hill and right near the end you have to try and brake without skidding. Then we went for a ride in zone 3 it was a bit over groan so we had to clear it out and we went through that about 3 time, then we went through zone 4 once because it was nice and clear, but one the way out half of us were down the bottom and were waiting for 3 more to come when we heard a high pitched scream and we all new that is was Liesel straight away, and so the 3 of then come out and there Liesel is with a bite on her leg and it was 2 bites so it looked like a snake bite so we were all panicking, but once she got her breathe back she said it was only a big bug that had bit her not a snake. Once we had put stingoes and a bandage on her we went for a ride down the drive way a practiced single file and double file.
Afternoon Class: Afternoon class was Questions and possibilities. We spoke about how there are lots of different questions, there are closed question were you ask a question and they can only give you a short sentence answer, and then there are opened questions were you can ask questions that make the person think about it and give a more detailed answer. Then we did celebrity heads and we spoke about ourselves for one minute. Where you just had to talk about where you came from and your family and a bit about yourself.
Evening Class: On Tuesdays evening class we had to make a safety talk and present it to the campus. My group got sun smart and we spoke about how to be sun smart, by doing slip, on a shirt, slop, on sunscreen, slap, on a hat seek and slide, on some sunglasses.
Daily Reflection Challenge:
The challenges I have faced this week is homesick and trying to get used to what is happening and why I choose to come here. I have been homesick because I have a very strong relationship with my family and I have never been away from them for so long, so I miss them and it is hard because I am always with them.
The steps I have tried to take to overcome these challenges is to try and distracted myself and be busy all the time, but it is very hard because I am still trying to settle in.
Jess and Liesel have tried to help me take my mind off my family and try and keep me busy, and I so grateful for their help. They come for walks with me, they also taught me how to play a really fun card game called split which is really funny to play.
I have had to try and show a lot of resilience and strength this week by trying to distracted myself from my thoughts of my family and try and bounce back from crying.
