WE Day 2016

November 9, 2016

The big day! As a member of the Me to We club, I get the privilege along with my friends to go to WE day. WE day isn’t like every other event. You can’t buy a ticket — you have to earn it. My school, Woodroffe, has had the Me to We club for a long time already. It’s for grades 5-6, and usually the grade sixes get to go. Unlike last year, there were less grade sixes, so we invited a few grade fives. Aidan, our friend, sadly couldn’t go because of some problem.

First, Mr.White and Mrs. Jahn, our club teachers, handed to everyone a OC transpo bus ticket for those who forgot, and also gave us a red bracelet to wear as a ticket, and a we day bracelet. We took the bus to the highway stop, and then took the special event at the CTC bus to get there. There was this man who talked a lot, and he showed us where there were some spots. We started the day with a bunch of famous people from Margaret Trudeau to the lead singer from Hedley!!! Participants:

I really loved Hedley’s performance, and I’m also a fan of him. He sang Loose control and Can’t slow down. I took a bunch of photos and videos. He also gave out autographed shirts but I didn’t catch one.  Serena Ryder beautifully sang Got your number and Tyler Shaw sang his song Wicked.
We took the OC transpo back to school, and then April, Rose, Grace and I went to the mall and we bought some timbits, and Grace even got a free small bag of Kernel’s popcorn!

Halloween 2016

Halloween 2016

Oh my gosh it is finally Halloween! Like the previous year, I dressed up as a baseball, and my sister, Rose, dressed up as an emoji. Both costumes were made my mother using the old yoga mats we had. This year, we decided to go with April, our best friend. She had to bring Arthur, her neighbor that also goes to our school, so he came too.

4:30

April and Arthur finally came! April was a graveyard bride and Arthur had an emoji mask.

First April decided to play piano for fun, and we started drawing on the whiteboard. April, who could draw really well, decided to draw a “masterpiece”. Not the Mona Lisa kind, but those stick-men with mustaches and eyes in different directions. After a while, Arthur drank half of his apple juice, and we started playing the water bottle flip. We played first one to 12, 10 and so on. I one a few, and it pretty entertaining while playing. April was like “How do you do this?” then she flipped the bottle and it actually landed! We all laughed, but I find it that she laughed the hardest. Then we ate a few pieces of pizza from pizza pizza (tongue twister!) that had cheese, sauce, and pineapples on it! But sadly my father forgot to order ham on it. We also had cheetos too!

6:00

We put on our costumes and headed outside to meet Emily, who called the other day to ask if we could get candy with her. Outside, we met Zicheng, with his brother and sister Ziheng and Ziyi. Zicheng too, he called to ask if he could go trick-or-treating with us, and we accepted. So we were going in a total of eight people! Zicheng was an I-pod, Ziheng was a “shadow” (he was supposed to be a ninja but forgot his “accessories.”) and Ziyi was a cute dinosaur. We went trick-or-treating along the way to Emily’s house, and there’s this one house that gave us Miss Vickie’s chip bags along with the big bars of chocolate. I got the large pack of snickers, and Rose got Twix! She was so lucky!

6:20

0ur group finally got to Emily’s house. For Halloween, she was dressed up as the one and only cookie monster! We apologized for having already started to start trick-or-treating, but she seemed to not have minded. We continued along our way, until our bags got pretty full so we went back for a washroom break and to get more bags to fill our candy with. We decided to play a harmless prank. We decided to ring the doorbell and say trick-or-treat all together but my father seemed to have seen us coming and opened the door before we could ring the bell. When we entered, we ate a few of our candies, and stuffed ourselves on cheetos. We headed back out.

8:00

For some reason, Emily and her parents stopped trick-or-treating, and so we all said good-bye to her. We got a lot of candy and I felt pretty bad because she was the last one to start and the first one to go.

9:00

Finished trick-or-treating! While my father sent Zicheng, Ziheng, and Ziyi home, we played water bottle flip. But I came up with a better idea. We all put some candy in the middle, and then first one to flip three times could have the first pick and could choose one candy to keep. Arthur was really generous and put in chips, tootsie rolls, and even his Pringles! I put in a few candy April liked, such as kitkat, and I generously “donated” popeye candy sticks.

9:15

April’s mother came to pick April and Arthur up, so we said good-bye to them, gave them their candy and left.

Another Halloween is over!
