Hard work means not giving up no matter what. Hard work is doing the best on whatever you are doing. In Blindsight, the kids worked very hard to get to the top of the mountain. In real life you have to work hard at your job, and in any activity that you are participating in. Hard work is very important in our lives.

If your locker door opens and closes suddenly, without you touching it, you can be sure that it was the school ghost, Herman von hel Holm, or Hermy as he is affectionately known. Hermy graduated in ’03. The day after graduation, Hermy was out with some friends, and was in a car wreck. Everyone but Hermy survived. Now Hermy stays at the corner of the sophomore and main hallway, and in the lounge. In his spare time, Hermy sells Coca-Cola and candy to the students.
You can recognize Hermy easily, because he is very tiny, standing 4’6”. He has brown hair, and wears a white t-shirt with blue jeans. Other than his size, Hermy looks just like a typical guy. He doesn’t scare anyone at all. He is a nice ghost, except for the fact he charges two dollars for a can of Coke. The only people he scares are dentists,
because they have to deal with the cavities he gives the students.
The teachers do not like Hermy because the students get pop from him, and the teachers don’t like food/drinks in the classrooms. The teachers try to get rid of him, but he dissipates when teachers are near. When kids are in class he roams the halls and hangs out in the shop in the cars because it reminds him of his death. Other times he helps out in FCS.
So, if you ever hear a locker door slam very loudly, or wonder where people are buying snacks in school, remember poor Herman von hel Holm.

The Hallowe’en feast at Hogwarts has all the food you can imagine: bacon, steak, mashed potatoes and bacon, chicken bacon ranch pizza, chicken and bacon, cheesy bacon wrapped in bacon, bacon covered bacon wrapped in bacon stuffed in a flatiron steak inside of a roasted turkey, wrapped in deer jerky, drizzled in pulled pork and BBQ sauce covered in bacon and cheese. That’s just the appetizers, for the main meal there is: more bacon, bacon salads in a bacon bowl, bacon taco shells overflowing with bacon, bacon sandwiches, bacon and eggs, sausage and bacon, bacon soup, bacon stew. For desert, there is: bacon pie, bacon cake, bacon ice cream, bacon candy, and bacon pudding.
For the décor, there is: hovering pumpkins, spider webs, lightning and thunder, bats soaring around, floating gravestones, balloons, jack ‘o’ lanterns, cauldrons, and spiders. There are Quidditch games, and spell casting competitions. People are talking to ghosts, and owls. There are wand making stations set up in the great hall. Everyone is playing amusing wizard games. Instead of trick or treating people shoot candy out of their wands at other people.
I think that Halloween at Hogwarts would be very entertaining!

"This petite swine went to the bazaar..."
via Mother Goose
This petite swine went to the bazaar; This modest hog stayed at his residence; This tiny gilt had a morsel of venison, And this minute boar did not have a bit; This slight barrow said, “Wee, wee, wee! I can’t come across my way to my abode.”

Eng 7 Period 2
An Unforgettable School Day
The sixth graders were decorating tables before the HAL Ceremony, the Houses are talking trash to each other. We can’t wait for the great announcement.
Next, the fourth and fifth graders come in and the trash talking continues, and Optimus is gloating about how they're gonna win. Exsequor is sitting quietly at their table. Our table is talking and chatting up Optimus. Exsequor and Optimus are rooting for Perfectus to loose, because we have been the victor the last 2 years.
Then, Mrs. Polionoski comes in and has us all sit down. She announces the next years Prefect for each house. Each old Prefect passes on a keepsake to the next. Optimus has a leather badge that Riley hand made. Exsequor made a wand to pass on. Our Prefect, Taya, just wrote a note that she probably wrote 5 minutes before the ceremony.
Finally, it was time to declare the winner. Optimus is ready to take the trophy when Mrs. Polionoski announce that Perefectus had won. We got the House Cup for the 3rd year in a row. We eat ice-cream while we celebrate and everyone else mourns their loss. Brett and I finish the ceremony with a stupid speech that I wrote during math when I should have been working, we then awarded our retired Prefect with a token made from notebook paper.
Our house was the reigning champions for three years. This was all because the Perfectus House of The Class of 2020 is awesome.

Here is my room. In my room I have a twin bed across from my brother’s bed. On the wall above my bed is my wood burning of my dog that got a purple ribbon at the Nebraska State Fair. At the other end of my bed is my shelf with trophies and plaques from the O’Neill and Norfolk archery club and 4-H. On my dresser I have my rendezvous medallions. My knives lay next to the medallions. My favorite knife is my deer antler handled knife that my great grandpa made. It came in a set that he gave to my mom. They all have eagles carved into the handles and the set has fifteen knives ranging in size from 2 to about 11 inches.
On the doorknob, I have many medals from archery competitions, 4-H Shooting Sports and baseball. On the wall above my brother Tyler’s bed are all the purple ribbons I have received at the county fair. My alarm clock is on my shelf along with a lot of stuff that I have. Tangled fishing line is all over the floor, along with clothes and shoes. On the shelf with the trophies is a 1965 Chevy Bel-Air clock that ticks very loudly. The dressers are overflowing with shirts and jeans.
I am rich beyond measure.
