Reflection of My First Week of School

In my first week of school I learned that no one is better than anyone. I also learned that freshmen are at the bottom of the pile. They aren't treated badly but they are just kind of ignored.

7th grade

7th Grade
By: Jarred Hurford

My seventh grade year was one of the more interesting years of school. It was full of sports and friends. There were a lot of popular things that went around this school year. 

One of the popular songs that I remember is "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore. I didn't really like this song because it was kind of annoying but it always got stuck in my head. Another popular song was "Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. I didn't listen to this song a lot but I kind of liked it. Macklemore was a very successful artist this year. 

The clothing that was popular during my seventh grade year was kind of sporty yet elegant. For example, a sports shirt with khakis. That was more of the style during my seventh grade year. I liked this fashion style too, it fit pretty good.

The really wasn't a type of car that was popular this year but if I had to choose one I would say a Lamborghini or a Ferrari.  We didn't really talk about cars that much, but sometimes those types of cars were talked about. I like those because they are fast and looked nice.

My seventh grade year was probably the best one yet. I had my two favorite teachers/coaches. We got to do fun things all throughout the year especially at the end. I think the most memorable thing about my seventh grade year was basketball. Basketball, because I had fun with my team and we almost went undefeated. Even though we didn't do that good in football, it was still my best year of football.I hope that my eighth grade  will be even better that seventh grade.

10 of my Favorite Things

 My first and favorite thing of all is football. Football is my favorite because it is action packed and it takes skill. I have played football every since I was little. I started playing at about 6 years old. Back when I started football I though it was boring and stupid because I wasn't that good, but now that I have been playing it for a while I have figured out that it takes dedication and hard work to be good at it.

This is a picture of my favorite football team and player, The Chicago Bears and Devin Hester.

My second favorite thing is basketball. Basketball has been my number two sport every since I can remember. Basketball helps me take my mind off of things and relax. I am not as good at basketball as I am at football, but it is still fun and takes a lot of skill even more than football. I mainly play basketball because I want to be with my friends and because my grandpa won a state championship when he played in high school. I would like to see if maybe one day I can do the same.
This is a picture of my favorite basketball team and my favorite player, The Indiana Pacers and Paul George.

 My third favorite thing is baseball. Baseball is a enjoyable yet sometimes boring sport. Sometimes all you do is stand there doing nothing. It is enjoyable because when you are doing good it helps your team and that's what I like to do help my team win. Winning is one of the best feeling someone can have. Unlike football and basketball, baseball doesn't take as much skill. I believe that baseball is 90 percent mental. 

This is a picture of my favorite baseball team and player, The Chicago Cubs and Anthony Rizzo.
 My fourth favorite thing is listening to music. I like to listen to music because it is easy to relax to. I think music is the only thing that you can do to clear your mind and think freely. Music also helps me concentrate on things like big tests and quizzes. 

 My fifth favorite thing is fishing. Fishing is fun because you are outdoors. I have always loved to be outdoors. I like to be with nature and I have always have competitions with uncle to see who can catch the most fish. It is always fun to beat him in those competitions because he gets mad. Fishing is one of the best things to do in your free time. 

 My sixth favorite thing is hockey. I have never played hockey but I think it would be fun to play. I watch it on TV a lot, especially the playoffs. I like hockey because there is a lot of hitting and there is constant action. Hockey isn't paid attention to a lot because not a lot of people watch it. If some people took the time to just watch one game they would be surprised how cool it really is.

 My seventh favorite thing is hunting. Hunting is fun because when you actually get an animal it is the best feeling. A lot of people don't like hunting because it is killing animals, but some animals are overpopulated, like deer. When you get the animal you can eat it too and that is really good.

 My eighth favorite thing is friends and family. Friends and family are the two most important things to me. They help me get through tough times and get over things. A lot of my friends aren't that close, but I don't really have a best friend; I treat them all the same. Family is really important, even though they get on my nerves sometimes, I still love them.

 My ninth favorite thing is school. A lot of people think school is boring but I don't think it is that bad. It can actually be fun at times, like when you have great teachers. I like to see my friends at school also because I don't see a lot of them outside of school. School is also where we get our education. School can be a great place to be.

 My tenth favorite thing is movies. Movies are really fun to watch, especially comedies. Comedies are my favorite type of movie. They make me laugh and they are enjoyable to watch. Movies are one of the best things that have ever been invented.

Digital Footprints

When I Google myself I find pictures and information from sports and school programs. An article from baseball comes up from when we won the Tri-County league tournament champions. We beat Bremen 11-8 to win the championship. I also found an article from basketball when I was the leading scorer in our game versus Bremen. I scored 12 points and had 4 rebounds.
