My Garden has Grown!!!

My Garden has grown, I now have 3 Tomato plants in total, 6 Roly Poly Carrot plants, 2 Red Capsicum plants, and 6 Lettuce Plants. I have really started my journey, and have just spent the last hour doing some maintenance on my plants.
So far so good.
Here are some pictures of some of my plants:

My Garden Has Started!!!

My garden has started

I have started my garden with a Sweet 100 Tomato plant.
This plant will produce around 100 small cherry tomatoes.
I planted it a few weeks ago, I do not have a picture of what it looked like then but here is a picture of what it looks like now:

My Garden

Since last year in Mr Woody's class I have wanted to start growing things in my own little garden.

Though this year I have talked multiple times with my parents about the idea of having a vege garden. They have both agreed that it would be a good idea but also the idea was raised that I might not stick with my garden and everything would go to waste. So I am starting off small to see if I will stick with it or not. I am hoping by the middle of next year that I will have a large raised garden around the side of our house.

Keep watching my blog for updates on my garden.

Stress is a very powerful thing.
It can make you think irrationally, and it can come so often.
I'm not very good at dealing with stress, and Mr Jones's class hasn't helped with that, having so much pressure to do well.

I am wondering what encounters you have had with stress, and how you overcome it

Change has hit America!

America wanted change and from 6:00 am NST Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States and the first African-American President.
His oath was muddled up a bit, but his speech made up for it.
There were great lines in his speech like:
"Starting today we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin the work of remaking America"
"On this day we gather because we have chosen hope over fear"
Around 2 million people gathered to watch Barack Obama's Inauguration

Last year was brilliant,
John Key won the election,
Barack Obama has become the first African-American to be a president elect,
V8 Supercars came to Hamilton,
The Olympics were in Beijing, China, what a party that was,
But most of all I was in Mr. Woody's class.

My real question is,
What will this year hold in store for us?
Remeber 2008 was last year, it is already written in rock,
but 2009 is the present and it is still being written, anything is possible,
and all doors are open.

New Prime Minister!

On Saturday it was polling day.

2,979,366 people were enrolled to vote. Did you know if you are over 18 years of age you have to be enrolled to vote but this doesn't mean you have to vote.

Over the 6 months of electioneering the One News Polls were against Labour showing that National could take it out. Well this is what they did. Once all the votes were counted and Winston Peters had made his "I'll be back speech" it showed that there would be a John Key lead government.

This is how the percentages went:
National 45.5% (59 seats)
Labour 33.8% (43 seats)
The Green Party 6.5% (8 seats)
Act 3.7% (5 seats)
Maori 2.3% (5 seats)
United Future 0.9 % (1 seat)
Progressive Party 0.9% (1 seat)
Bill & Ben Party just over 0.5% (0 seats)
Nz First OUT (0 seats)

Some of the big surprises of the 2008 elections are:

Helen Clark stepping down from the role of the leader of the Labour Party
Winston Peters not getting Tauranga and not getting into parliament
Simon Bridges getting Tauranga by a convincing 10,000 votes
Judith Tizard (one of Helen Clarks best friends) being knocked out of parliament by Nationals Nikki Kaye
Michael Cullen (Labours finace minister) stepping down from his roles of deputy Prime Minister and Finace Minister but still being an MP

So all and all it was a clean win to National.

In class yesterday we had a discussion about Palm Oil and Orangutans. On this post you will be able to discuss your points of views and ask questions which hopefully I will be able to answer.
This primate is now only found in rainforests on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. Orangutan fossils have been found in Vietnam, China and Java but now sadly no Orangutans live in the wild in these places now.

Black Belt!

On Saturday I graded for my black belt in Kenpo Karate.
Guess what, I got it!
The best Kenpo artist in the world was there as well as black belts from Australia and around New Zealand.
The grading took 3 hours. I have been doing Kenpo for 6 years.
So now I've made the first step to becoming an adult black belt, well so GL would say.
