Last Wednesday, my school held a Gala & Award show. I’m a bit upset that I got there pretty much at the end of the ceremony because I was stuck in never-ending traffic :[. I won 3 awards: 2 trophies for MVP in basketball & Honor Roll/Best Class Average in Grade 11 and a certificate for my co-op program. I didn't get my moment of shine on stage but it's all good. I'll be sure to be on time next year...that's if I am nominated again, lol :D. Enjoy the flicks!
My school’s graduation was last week and all my Grade 12 friends spent their last moments in my school’s auditorium. I was the soundGRL/techGRL for the night and I had to make sure everything was running smoothly. I took lots of pictures and it made me excited for my graduation next year! Take a look.
Where am I? Behind the lens.
So while I’m not out hustling, I go to a place called highschool. This semester I only have two classes: English & Marketing. So in English class, we are reading the book “The Iliad”. My teacher gave us a little work to do; we had to write our own sonnet but it’s not as easy as it sounds! It had to be written by using those old English expressions and stuff.. All thats Shakespeare-like talk. We also had to pick a scene out of the book & base it off that. So this is what I came up with. Don’t laugh! I procrastinated on doing this and kind of rushed it. I think it’s cool but ehhh. Thy, shall, thy, caca, poo poo.
Sadly thy father is now daughterless
To solely capture, furthermore take,
It is reckless to be in this tough mess,
And where his soul; is yet in vain to shake.
Were once named Chryseis and Briseis couplet
Longed to Agamemnon and Achilles,
Already hated them although they just met,
Feeling vengeful like patterned buzzing bees.
Gratification doesn’t always work,
Thus said a second plan should be in play,
Enormous ransom returned with a smirk,
Broken down in several pieces of clay.
When done for; there is no where you can go,
Although you can give thanks to Apollo.

Yay? Nay? I should become a rapper right? Naw? Alright.
..Okay maybe not but yesterday I took my last exam. It was supposed to be on Wednesday but there was a snow storm & it was reported to Thursday. 10 more highschool credit ’til I’m done!! I can’t wait for my co-op next semester; I’m doing it at Chris Smith Management, where I currently intern ;].
Anyways, as crazy as my homegirl Hanna is, she came to school with her hair looking a bit Tina Turner-ish. I just HAD to take bare pics & she didn’t mind lol. Peep it.
So after 2 weeks of vacation, I’m back in school. I must say, it is hard to wake up at 5:45 every morning. I wish I could just fall back asleep & sleep in. Ughhh, 1 more year and a half of highschool! Yaaaay! I’ll be sure to enjoy these last 18 months of highschool life. Here are some pics that I took yesterday & today.

Yesterday, a group of kids from grade 2-6 came to my school for a visit. The main purpose of the trip was to “spend a day in a high school”. They came from an all French elementary school in Oakville and were all excited to be there! I along with other students in my school were chosen to be guides and to help out the kids. I was the designated photographer and graphic designer. They made me design a 3 panel pamphlet to hand out to the kids at the end of the day. It contained most of the pics that I took the day of. We prepared different activities such as sports, dancing, drama, arts, computers, and scientific experiences. I love kids and it was dope to spend a day with them. They were all oh so cute and full of energy. Here are some pics from yesterday… don’t mind the ones of my playing dead at the beginning. I was just playing around with my homegirls Rona and Marwa. =] enjoy!
