Okay so I really want to go on this mexico mission trip with my church youth groupand my mom said i could go and everything was paid for, EVERYTHING, the whole 600 dollars. Its a week long and we are building houses for a small village. The thing is i missed school for 2 days without telling her, she think i was doing bad things, but i wasn’t, beside missing school. that week i had 3 music concerts, music practices every day, volunteering at the hospital, homework, piano and voice lessons. I was sooo incredibly tired and i just didnt wake up and i just had so much on my plate i slept and did my homework both days. so when my mom was told this she decided i am not going to mexico any more. I’ve missed school before for pretty much the same situation, it happens every once and while because im very busy and i know missing school is bad, but when im so worn out i cant focus in class, im falling asleep, and i cant remember anything! so i feel its better for my to just rest a little bit then go to class and make it up and talk to me teachers and learn everything. anyway my mom is only possibly going to get her money back because they already deposited it and the deadline of getting her money back was may 2oth. the youth group is leave next sunday and i still really really REALLY want to go. I want to have this experience and learn, change, and grow, and i feel this trip will do this, i want to reach out to other people and do things for a purpose greater than myself and im not going to get another opportunity like this fo a really long time that ill actually be able to go to. I really want to change my moms mind to let me go because its not to late to tell my pastor. I was hinking about exchanging this punishment for a different one and this mission trip is hardly even a vaction ill be camping in a desert in a tent with a 1 inch mat to sleep on and a milk jug filled with water to shower with everyday and ill be working on the house the whole week from 7am to 5pm then we eat pray and sleep. i want to go so bad! how do i talk to her about this to hopefully let me go?!
I have been really trying hard to get her approval back going to school everyday never late, doing the dishes, and i did work for the church to earn money to go because i know money doesnt grow on trees, i also did extra work to help other people be able to pay to go. but the consequences im going to propose are, doing yard work 2hours 4 times a week for the whole summer, no internet (im going to give her my laptop) for the whole summer and do the dinner dishes everynight for the whole summer. i already clean the whole house bathooms and all, every thursday.
also on the trip no cell phone, mp3 players, gameboys, or watches are allowed.
do you think this is a reasonable punishment in exchange? i wanted to choose punishment she can see me doing so i can prove to her i mean what i say. I completely understand my actions deserve a consequence and i havent tried to protest her punishments ever, so im really worried now because im not trying to protest it im just exchanging…
Get a job and pay for it yourself. Money doesn’t grow on trees.
TEENS: any suggestions?
especially if you went camping during autumn. so i’m going on a camping trip this wednesday for gym and it’s going to be cold and damp. i have a friend whose brother went camping 2 weeks ago and she said that the water seeped through the tent, making everything all wet. so anyways, what i’m bringing is a sleeping mat (it’s something like a yoga mat but you put it under your sleeping bag to make the ground softer) and a thick sleeping bag. in terms, would this help me keep dry at night?
my parents won’t let me bring an air mattress and i tried reasoning with them
Ive done a lot of camping and that should work. But you should bring some extra towels that you could stuff down inbetween your mat and the wall of the tent. Or even blankets..anything should work have a good trip, enjoy
Is my writing good? Honest feedback wanted?
Okay. I am an 11 year old aspiring writer. This is from my latest project I’ m working on, titled “Willows”
Aklika sat by the edge of the crystal clear lake, her striking green eyes distant and sad. Tenrek was dying, and it was all her fault. She felt horrible. If only he had listened…
He thoughts were swept to something different as she watched the water flow. She still had yet to find the spirit hunters, and possibly save the sea clans. She didn’t know how she was going to find them, or why she even bothered, but something deep inside her told her it was what she had to do. Sometimes she thought it was the forest speaking to her. The trees knew all.
The old sea eagle mage emerged from the healing shelter. She beckoned for Aklika to come in. Aklika made her way into the small hut, and the sight that lay before her made tears fill her eyes.
Tenrek lay on a sleeping mat, his face the color of wet ash, and the large wound from the shark on his leg covered with yellow puss. His blue-green eyes were no longer happy and bright, but distant and bloodshot. His breathing was heavy and labored.
“He isn’t getting any better,” the mage whispered with understanding in her voice. “Aklika,” Tenrek moaned hoarsely. Aklika rushed to his side. “Yes? I’m here,” she took his cold hand in hers. “Aklika, I’m sorry. I-It’s all my fault,” he croaked. “No, It’s not. You can’t help what I am,” she said softly. A tear ran down her cheek. “You are a who, not a what,” he told her. His breathing stopped for a second, and then returned. “Aklika?”
“Yes Tenrek?” he looked her in the eye. “I love you. Don’t forget that. We are bound by the heart.” his eyes closed and Tenrek was grasped into the depths of sleep.
“He needs sleep,” the mage croaked. She led Aklika away. It was horrible watching him suffer like this. It was all her fault. No, it was the spirit hunter’s fault. They were sending the demons that made him sick. She didn’t know who they were, nor did she want to. They were evil. They were slowly killing her best friend. She wanted revenge. She didn’t care about losing her sould to bloodlust anymore. Aklika slung her pack over her shoulder, and made her way to her shelter on the far side of camp. She would need her rest if she were to make this journey.
AND YOU WROTE THAT?!
That did NOT sound like an 11 year old’s story.
Holy good gosh girl, don’t forget me when you’re famous! Hahaha, I look forward to reading your future books. <3 I'm not a picky reader, I'm like… An average person. I know some people on here are like super experienced and have read books I've never even heard of, so from the average person's standpoint, that was amazing.
