This will be my last and final post on Stories of a 7th Grader. This blog started on November 24, 2008, at the beginning of my 6th grade year. Since my first post, there have been many comments, views, posts, and pages, and I am thankful to any viewers. There will be a complete renovation of this website under the new name

I pretty much failed the blogging challenge in ’09 given by Ms. Wyatt, so the ’10 Challenge will be on the new blog, futurewriter. This site will not, nor will ever be a cucumber(long story) so I hope you enjoy it!

Class Motto

Or at least I think it should be. Most people will converse with peers during classes from time to time, but there are a few who will talk loudly or nonstop, therefore making the classroom seem filled with twice as many people as there are. I see nothing wrong with outgoing people; they are usually funny, bright, and bring some more hope into the world. However, there are some times when one can be silent. He might have been considered a bloodthirsty leader, but the French leader Napoleon Bonaparte made a great point when he gave  the following quote.

Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.”

Life Goes On!


This is a beautiful quote that I found online, but sadly the author is unknown (but definitely not me!)

Life is too short. Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can, apologize when you should and let go of what you can’t change. Love deeply and forgive quickly. Take chances, give everything and have no regrets. Life is to short to be unhappy. You have to take the good with the bad, smile when your sad, love what you got and always remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget. Learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change, and things go wrong but always remember life goes on.

Spelling Bees

The school spelling bee is over and I won!! I would have liked to go on but unfortunatley this year our school winner will not go on to the next stage. I don’t think that I will win a great Spelling Bee any time soon, but it’s always fun to imagine. Here’s a story to let your minds  buzz on. Spelling Bee Story

Noah’s Ark

My church’s preschool area, called Noah’s Ark, has a few books that are falling apart, so they would prefer some new ones. My friend’s aunt’s bookstore is volunteering to donate one book to Noah’s Ark for every ten books that are bought. Instead of going to Amazon, try buying your books at to help the church. See Abbey‘s site for more information.
