Didn't Know I Could Do That

A couple of weeks ago, I came home and checked my email and saw and email saying that I was doing the 4 km walk , which was a part of a big marathon that takes place each year.

At first, I was annoyed, because I really didn't want to do it. At all. But then I warmed up to the idea and decided I was going to come first out of everybody. That or refuse to even cross the start line and be my normal stubborn self.

In the leading up days, I started to decide that there was no way at all that I would come first out of everybody, so I decided to try and come first out of every one in the school team.

We got there and wandered on to the very crowded oval, where the race was going to start. It was very
crowded, as I said before.

After waiting a while, the starting gun went. It took us about 5 minutes to get from where we were standing. We finally got past the start line and around the oval, before continuing onto the road. AT first I walked with my Mum and Aunty but then decided that they were going too slow so I started to walk with Dad, but he was also going too slow so I guess I just started to walk a little faster.

Before I knew it, I was at the drink station, also known as the 1km mark, and way ahead. I was hoping to see my fellow Guides there, but there was no sign.

Did I mention that I've never ran 4 km before?

There was a big hill that hurt my legs, but when I got to the top, I 1. Could see the water, and 2. Knew the rest was mostly downhill.

I rounded the last corner and started full out running. I had been running most of the way, but also walking quite a bit.

Looking Begind my shoulder, it looked something like this. * Not My Picture ~ Edited by Me ~ Original Photo

I pased the finish line, walked a bit and stopped to talk to my "friend" who is in year 3 while we waited for our slow parents to get to the finish line. After they finally got there, we went and collected our free bottles of Powerade and collected out awesome medals that were very generic.

My brother went to get a bottle, but the guy handed him a whole tray full. So now I have 1 and a half bottle sitting in the fride waiting to be drunk.

Now for the results. I came 14th from the school team and 2604th from the 7400 people that did the 4kn walk. I'm sorta sad about coming 14th though, because I passed heaps of people from school. Most of the way, I was thinking that I was going to come first from the school team beacuse I ran most of the way. I get to the finish line and saw that my "friend" had beaten me. I was okay with that beacuse that meant I came 2nd, but then she said she saw some other people pass from  school before me.

Checking the results today, I feel stupid.

I did it in 34 minutes and 13 seconds. I didn't know I could do that.


Forgetting about that though, I'm incredibly excited becuse in 37 days...

Well, I can't say right now, but I will soon. I'm so super duper excited.

What I've Been Doing Lately

First, the reason I haven't been blogging at all in the last month or so.

I have had Homework. That is the reason. But it was fun homework and it was for extension class.

I had to build my dream home!

These are taken with my mum's iPhone, so please excuse the poor lighting and quality :)

Let me take you on a tour of my 5 bed 4 bath dream home :)

The front of the house. Sorry for the poor lighting. and mess in the background. I shoved everything aside.

Welcome to my house. This is the front. The balcony has 3 doors leading from the front bedrooms. My dream home is like a mini mansion. .

Welcome to the first floor. On the first floor, there is a triple garage, a theatre and a guest wing (or as Dad calls it, the maid's quarters). There is a massive open living area.

There are big 3 meter high french/concertina doors that let you "open up the wall" to the outside. The east facing wall is the back wall and is made mostly of glass.

the first floor.
the big glass wall without the roof or the second floor.
my awesome massive french doors.

 There are 4 bedrooms on the second floor as well as a kitchen and two bathrooms.. Most important to my design is the big void area. On the second floor, there is a balcony looking down to the first floor and an inaccessible area. The kitchen has a dumwaiter to get food from the kitchen on floor one to the kitchen on floor two or vice versa.

the second floor.

To the exterior, my house has a sloped roof, with a two meter slope. It has a pool that's 10m by 3m and big french doors.

By far the best Extension class couse I've ever done. What does your dream home include?

P.S. Over the last couple of days I seemed to have gained 5 EXTRA FOLLOWERS! That is a lot to me guys. So thankyou so much Teddy2Tie, Kristen, pppookie, Random Rawr and thunderstar

Design News

Hi Guys. What's up? Yes, I know I've been a bad awful blogger lately. I'm still alive and well and the aliens havn't kidnapped me yet. Anyway, I've been thinking about some stuff and I've decided that I don't want to do graphic design for peoples anymore, but because I love making backgrounds, I will still make them and post them on this blog as freebies. Do you think I should post them on this blog or forget it all together? Vote on the poll on the left.

Coming up in about a week, the reason I havn't been blogging.

Again, sorry for not blogging :)
