Polar Bears

A Boring Weekend...

Day by day, hour by hour. “Tick Tock, Tick Tock”, goes the clock. Just sitting there listening to cars passing by, sirens going off. How boring can my life get?

All of a sudden, I found myself in the middle of a strange, hair-rising, bizarre forest.

While walking through the dark, mysterious forest,
I could hear my name being called out several times. It got louder and louder & louder and louder. When!!!, suddenly I realized I was daydreaming and that I was still stuck in my dull household.

As I was about to fall asleep, I could hear my mum’s voice echoing down the hallway. “I have an ocean full of dishes for you to clean”. I tried to ignore her, she called again and again, and that’s when I knew I had to get up before she turns into a dragon.

Seeing the ocean full of dishes made me a bit anxious & even drowsy. While washing the dishes, I found myself in the middle of a peculiar beach, sitting and staring at the ocean.

“Look at the mess you have made, the water is going to overflow”, a voice explained. The same voice was calling my name several times (again!). Suddenly!!!!! I felt like someone was shaking me. The shake was going on for a while, I suddenly clicked. I was daydreaming again (see! my life is sooo boring!). “Wash the dishes now”, she yelled. I instantly washed the dishes, so I could leave. I finally left my mother’s territory and departed myself to my monotonous room.  

“What a boring weekend”, I cried. Now I know the secret of having fun, just imagine.

Importance of Education

(Education is the key to success). Imagine a world without any schools or even colleges! Impossible right? I know how much we hate waking up early for school or studying all night for those tests or exams. We all know that education is very important.

I think that every single one of us in this room should be able to make it into college by the time we finish intermediate because everyone has the potential to be successful, whether it’s you, you, or you.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” As quoted by Nelson Mandela.. Education helps us a lot to sharpen our skills. Without Education, we would be living on the streets, we would have no money and we would be a total nobody (right?).

Education gives us knowledge about the world we live in, the universe and beyond. It is important for everyone to have education a part of their life, without education we or I wouldn’t be where we are now.

Education is more than just reading, writing, spelling, maths and so on. It’s also not about being the top student and getting amazing marks. Education is all about having a choice, it is not about being rich and successful, it’s about using it to do something you love.

There are many bad stereotypes about Pacific Islanders, like,
That they are going to have bad jobs, we are lazy, they will struggle in life or they will obviously become criminals. I believe that these stereotypes about Islanders are all lies. If we concentrate on education now. Our futures will be positive and these stereotypes will disappear. Take education seriously, work hard, and choose your future.

“Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom”, As Quoted by George Washington Carver.
