Things I Do Not Like About Middle

Now, I'm currently at my sister's volleyball practic at the Malta Community Center. I am on the computer's in the library right now. I decided that I would write on my blog a list of things I do not like about middle school so far this school year.

Things I Do NOT Like About The Middle School: 
  1. The lockers are about half a foot wide, so I can barely get through between periods everyday.
  2. The annocements are on second block, not first, so when I don't know what rotation day it is, it really is not handy when they say second block into the day.
  3. Many kids swear as if it is the word "the", and it bothers me because some of the kids that were in my class last year do that, too. Last year if they said a bad word, they would be sent down to the principal office and have a harsh punishment. Now, the teachers do not even care. At lunch, some random kid sat down next to me and started swearing. I asked to one of the "deans" (punishment deciders) if I could move my seat because the kid next to me was swearing, and she didn't even care to ask which kid it was.
  4. The hallways are too small, and having all 250 6th graders walking in the hall at the same time between blocks just doesn't make sense to me. Whoever designed the design of the school should of thought how many students would be in the hall at one time.
  5. And on top of all of that, we only have 4 minutes to get to each class. With the small halls and lockers, I can barely make it to each class (as many other students do, too).
  6. All of the clocks in the building are different times and are not the same as when the bell rings.
There are a lot more, but I have to go now, so if I thinks of more ideas later on and have time and a computer to update this post, I will.
 
Bye!

December 4th, 2013: Update

Hello everyone! I am at school right now. It is 8:43AM, and since I finished all of my work, I get to do whatever now, so I decided to write on my blog. I just updated the template for this website yesterday, and as you can see if you are reading this post online, it is christmas-themed. There are a lot of free Blogger templates you can download through third-party websites. Blogger doesn't offer a lot by default, and they are sort of plain, boring and unapeeling to me. And so you know if you do not already, instead of typing http://www.rileys-adventures.blogspot.com/ everytime you want to visit my blog, I have set up a free shorter domain for http://www.dot.tk with I love. You can access this shorter way to get to my blog by typing http://www.rileyblog.tk with is a lot shorter.

Christmas is coming up and I have done most of my holiday shopping  so far for my family. I love making "perler art", which may sound weird but it is a really cool process that I started doing in 3rd grade. First you get some beads, which I got at IKEA in Dresden, which are called "perler beads". You then place the beads on perler pegboards. Then when you make an image you like, you iron it with an iron and it will some how join together. You take the art of the pegboard and it is one object. I made a lot of different things with this method, and I actually made a Gingerbread House out of this during December of the year I was in Europe. There are a lot of templates you can download for free if you are stuck on what you want to make at EK Success Brands. I also just joined Pinterest, and there are so many ideas and templates on what to build. I just created a Google Chrome logo, Android guy, Flower, Windows mouse cursor and a lot more just within the last week. I know, I've typed a lot about this, but I have a whole hour to type and write on my blog.

Well, I'm stuck on what to write about know, so if I do think about it, I'll come back later, maybe during lunch to write about other stuff. Goodbye for now!

11/29/13: Update

Today is Friday, November 29th, 2013. Today, we will most likely go bowling. I am at Grandma and Grandpa's house still. Aunt Jen and Uncle Jeff went shopping at the mall an hour ago, and we don't know when they will be back.

I'm bored. The technology talk net cast network (TWiT.tv) is not in operation this Thursday and Friday, so I can't watch anything. 

Well, hopefully if I remember I'll post later writing the scores of bowling (if we even do go). Happy Black Friday!

Update for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Well, I thought I would write down everything that happened today:

I woke up at about 8:30AM to 9:00AM. When I went downstairs all I smelled were onions, which I hate the smell of. Apparently Mom was cutting one open.

At noon we went to my Aunt Marijo and Uncle Matt's house for the meal. I'll name all of my family that went: Mom, Dad, Maggie, Justin (my cousin), Julia (my cousin), Aunt Jen, Uncle Jeff, Grandpa Homer, Grandma, Uncle Matt and Aunt Marijo. I will also name all of the dogs that came: Mickey, Cocoa, Wilson and Chipper (Guppy is too crazy, so we decided that he would stay home).

I'm spending the night at Grandma and Grandpa's house, where Justin, Julia, Uncle Jeff and Aunt Jen are staying this week for Thanksgiving. Although Julia is staying with Maggie at our house. 

Again, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! 

Things I Am Thankful for This Thanksgiving

1. My entire family
 
2. The food that I eat
