Canada Day

Yesterday on Canada day my parents and I drove to Stevenson, Richmond for the Canada day parade.We got there early so we wandered around the booths a little and then we saw a booth with a game. the game was that you need to throw 2 out of 4 beanbags into a tiny hole in a inflatable bouncy mat.I won and I chose a foldable frisbee as my prize.

Then we walked to a street nearby where the were grilling salmon fillets over a giant wood fire on racks measuring around 1 meter by 2.5 meters,there were 8 racks in all.The people working there rotated the racks by looking at the time and once a specific time passes they would take off the rack closest to them shift all the other racks toward them and add another rack with raw salmon on the other end.1 rack takes 10 minutes to be ready for consumption.Since this is not a very common phenomenon lots of people were gathered around the fire and taking photos,my dad was one of them.The salmon was sooo delicious,but it was kind of pricey at $16 per filet and salad.But even though it was this pricey the line for it was the longest line in the whole celebration. According to the official site of the Stevenson salmon festival last year they sold ___ salmon.

After that I went to a bouncy castle park they set up nearby and my dad bought me 12 tickets with $10.First I played in a race track bouncy castle where I won the race.There was also a golf course where I got 3 hole in ones out of 10.Then I went to an archery place with a bow and some arrows tipped with foam as to not injure anyone.I shot a floating foam ball down by accident because my arrow went sideways and hit the ball with its tail!

Then we had to leave and on the way home there was a traffic jam that lasted 1 hour with absolutely no movement.At night we went to Coquitlam for  fireworks.In summary it was an awesome day.

Summer school

This morning was the last part of summer school.This summer I enrolled in Pre-calculus 12.The course was 5.5 weeks long and had 10 tests(around 1 test every 2 or 3 days).In the total for my tests I got 92% which means that I got an A for the first part.Then in the final exam I got 100% which raised my total score to 93%.

I think my teacher Ms.Paterson is very good at explaining what each and every concept means.For example when she explained to the class what factorial notation is.Also when I am done the assignments for the day she lets me go to the library to read.

The library is one of my favourite places in the high school.One of the reasons why I like the library so much is that it allows me to wind down and relax after some studying.It is also a place for me to learn new things and read interesting science books like “How things work now”.

Overall this summer was AWESOME!

My favorite Greek restauant

My favorite Greek restaurant is located around 3 minutes from my house on Cameron st.It is directly opposite Cameron public library.

I usually eat there when I get an A or when a relative comes for a visit.Also when there is a holiday.

My favorite meal there is the Arni Kleftiko which is roasted lamp shoulder with rice and Greek salad and yogurt.

Right when you go in you see the bar with the cashier and the alcohol people.I usually go to the kitchen situated on the right to talk to the chef.Inside the restaurant are walls which look like they’ve been splattered from a concrete glob fight which actually makes it look pretty cool.It is in the shape of an L with an outdoor patio and tables.

I wish I could take this restaurant with me wherever I go!

Origami

One of my hobbies is making origami.By now I have around 10 paper shurikens and 25 paper swords.Making origami is one of my ways of relaxation and testing out new sword designs is always cool.Here is a rundown of the types of swords I make: long sword(1 meter),Double bladed,throwable,sword with bent tip(for hooking) and assassin sword.I make my swords out of A4 printer paper and I get my instructions online.

I also have many 8 pointed stars and 4 pointed stars.

This year at BMSS for me

BMSS is by far the best high school I’ve been to this year.It is awesome for many reasons.Some of them include the classes,the teachers and the pizza!This year I took calculus 12 with Mrs.Morrison who is the department head at BMSS.As I said previously I love the pizza there and I will be telling you why soon.

The pizza there is great because of 3 reasons.The first one is that you can actually see what they put in the pizza because the do it on a counter where the potential customer can see.Secondly the slices are huge,not like pizza in a box which are very slim and mostly air.Lastly the chefs and the cashiers are all very nice which makes the experience even better.The lunch lady also particularly likes me!

The teachers are all very nice and good at the things they teach.I know you are thinking why wouldn’t a teacher know that they are teaching,Good question because some teachers just pay a school some money to be let in.The teachers I know at the high school are :Mrs.Morrison(department head teaches calculus 12),Mrs.Fulop(teaches math) and Mr.Liu(helps other math teachers).Anyways the niceness of the teachers are directly proportional to the amount students learn.So in my opinion the teachers at BMSS encourage the students to learn so much that even the lazy students learn a lot.I am also Currently enrolled in grade 12 Precalculus summer school.

In conclusion BMSS is a very great school overall and it has many upsides.So I give it a rating of pi^2(around 9.8) out of 10.
