Goals for the Year. 16.10.2015

This Year I set my self three goals to complete by the end of the year. I am reflecting on them to check on my progress.
These are those goals:

  • Get in to Hagley.
  • Become more confident in math.
  • Finish home work challenges.

So far I have made it into Hagley and have become more confident in math. 

My next step is to complete more home work challenges.

Koru Games Reflection

Over the last three days I really enjoyed how the other sport teams would play fair and show good sportsmanship because then when we lost then we knew that other teams wouldn't brag.

Thinking back to the beginning of the year I really improved at my defending because at the beginning of the year I couldn't intercept the ball but now I can.

Something I will remember is intercepting the ball and then passing to Rosie who then scored a goal.

writing proof

Grade for Essential List Spelling: Commonly Misspelt Words.

Your grade: 53 / 55 (96.36%)

I got two wrong:

#1: Programme
I spelt it like:

#2: they're
I spelt it like:

Horse Breeder/Trainer

My writing goal for this trem is spelling. I can show this in my writing by spelling words correctly and underlining wors i don't know.

For a career I would like to be a Horse Breeder/Trainer. Equus Ferus Caballus ( Horse, Pony etc.) Breeding /Training has been around since 4000 BC and requires skills like patience, ability to collaborate easily and other learner dispositions. During this job you may be asked to train Horses to race, jump, do dressage, or even just be a 'bombproof' Pony club mount. If you love Horses this would be a good job to have as it requires spending the majority of the day with Horses.

Though there are no specific qualifications you will need from High School something that will help you to gain jobs would if you become a Stable Hand  at the local stables, it is advisable to work for at least six years to gain work experience. You will profit from this as if you are a newbie to Horses then it is likely for both you and the Horse to be hurt. This is why it is also important to know Horses anatomy and behaviour; you may  think that something usual to Horses was unnatural and therefore hurt the Horse unaware. To have good fitness levels will be a great hand as you may spend most your time running around the Horse on a lunging rein so it you are not as fit you might grow too tired to quickly  so therefore unable to complete training session.  Also you must have a passion for Horses because if you are just in for the money then you are likely to be unsuccessful.  

If you want to be more successful, then after High School there are courses that you can take. These are often called Equine courses. And often include spending time at stables for work long hours as well as learning  care of Horses. If you don't want to spend more money on scholarships ( although these will help you) another idea would be to become an apprentice for a qualified stables. Both of these options will give you knowledge and skills of handling Horses but if you do an Equine course you may advertise this and therefore people are more likely to pick you over other Horse Breeder/ Trainers.

This is important because if you have more jobs then you will get more pay.Depending on how much experience, skill and ability you have, then your pay will vary majorly; you may have trouble finding people that will let you train their horses as well as a decrease of people who want horses to be trained.. This is may be because no matter how good you are people may just not know about you. Something you could do to solve this is to send out flyers or to put an advert in the local newspaper. In the past year only 576 people were working as a Horse Breeder/ Trainer. As it was once said " To become a millionaire with Horses then you must start out as a billionaire." This is mostly true as quite a few people who have started out with nothing have become wealthier as they got more jobs.  

Unfortunately because of the varying pay this  job is not for everyone  if this is the case for you then a backup plan is advisable so if you become broke then you can swap to another job and probably become more financially secure. You can achieve this as easily as just taking another subject in high school for example: Accounting, will give you an advantage so that you can jump straight into accounting instead of having to redo high school.

I love Horses so I believe that this would be a great way to work with horses on a daily basis and to earn money at the same time. Even though it is a risky business with financial problems quite a possibility I would still love to wake up to Horses in the morning. This is my career goal and I would be willing to work for it.

kaimanawa ponies

Stallions, colts, fillys, and mares
grazing on the kiamanawa  ranges
with coal black eyes, and pricked ears
these ponys were wild with flowing manes and tails
of chestnuts and roans, greys blacks and bays
though all are brown with  dirt, prickels and burs
when the stallion lets out pearsing neighs
to worn the herd of danger at bay
then tundering hoofs were heard from a thousand miles away
muffling the sound of a hellicopters roar
To the slaughter they are headed, the only darkness on this fine day
but now instead of being killed as they once were
they are taken to homes for humans to be friend.

my wonder writing

WALT use paragraphs correctly in my writing.
In some of the paragraphs I had to ad some more paragraph so that I could follow the rules of paragraphs. these are the rules for adding paragraphs. Add paragraphs when there is a new:
topic or idea

This is the writing I made as a prequel of the novel Wonder

The restaurant dilemma

I watched as the city lights blur together. Then my dad is indicating and we pull into the restaurant. The flickering neon light above advertises a ' Mister Mathews Bar And Diner.' I guess this is where we are having tea. Through the glowing Window I can see an elderly couple having dinner, not bad considering, so I continue through to the interior doors as I continue to scan the room my eyes rest upon a convoy of teenaged students. "Great." teenaged people are the worst. 

By now you're probably wondering what it is that I'm going on about, well... it's my face, I could try to describe it but whatever you're thinking my face is definitely worse. 

This is torture. I can feel the steers boring through my skull, and the whispers it's like they're not even trying to be quiet. "I hear that its a disease. " One whispers.

 " Do you think it's contagious, I don't want to catch it maybe we should leave. "  Another one whispers. Yet they stay seated on the leather covered chairs, whispering.

I need to work on remembering to add paragraphs. When I am writing instead of adding it in afterward. This is not the whole story.
