More updates from my life

yesterday, the school slam poetry team that im on went to the semi-finals. we competed against 5 schools and came 2nd place, not too bad. the school that beat us was called Wendat villiage..... such a beautiful name for a school ;D. the top two schools go to the finals, so we are going. i have a long time to think about my final poem. i really want my school to win obviously but for the poetry not for the school. the school still annoys me.

the organizer was Dwayne Morgan. google him. he spoke at our school for the African heritage month, introduced slam poetry to Kanata, and is passionate about many important tings such as womens righs or should i say...... gender equality, keeping in mind that men are equal too (jajajaja....)

sorry for the run on sentences, grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes. im using a tablet to write tis.

lastly, id like to share an amazing video. my lovely friend showed tis to me. i know that many awesome people like the Mexica movement know tat disney is racist, that disney princesses are a bad influence for young girls who feel forced to be 'pretty'. that is ugly!! i know some people feel as though their child hood is a lie becauze of this but enjoy disney princess song parodies anyway:

(and skip to the end if you wish for Pocahontas, who was a twelve year old raped by john smith dont forget)

just search up 'after ever after' on youtube. im sorry.... am not good with tablets so i cant embed or link right now.

EDIT: FROM A COMPUTER :D 
well guess what?! I'm editing this from a computer. too hard to go back and fix mistakes but I can embed the video ^_^ : 

skip to the end if you only want the Pocahontas one although I suggest you watch them all. It's quite funny ^_^ :

Books I've Read on Goodreads







Freya's bookshelf: read




Tess of the D'Urbervilles


really liked it




Saddest book I've ever read. I don't know why so many of the other reviews seem to hate the protagonist Tess or are saying she should have known better about Alec. In my opinion, she is an amazing character. She was the most mature, resp...




Wenjack


really liked it




The writing style evoked a lot of emotion. Joseph Boyden was just really good at putting himself in someone else's shoes. That's the only way I can think to describe it. The book is based on the true story of Chanie Wenjack, who died try...





Hamlet


it was amazing




My favourite Shakespeare play so far (I'm going to read all 37 of them eventually). I felt like it wasn't violent enough for a "revenge tragedy" though.




The Boy Who Played Tiger


really liked it




An amazing children's book set in a small village in Myanmar. Very entertaining to read. I highly recommend this to parents who want reading suggestions for their children as I think it's a good idea to start reading about other cultures...
