Hey guys! I just went to the Dragon Boat Festival yesterday to watch our high school team JAWS, compete against other dragon boat racing teams from all over the world. There were teams from China, Japan, and so many more. It was so interesting to watch because it's such an intense sport. Not only were they going up against other teams; they were racing against adult teams. Although I did not stay for the entire festival, it was super fun. Aside from the races, there were food trucks and performances from martial arts masters and traditional dances. It was a great way to get in with the whole cultural blend of the event. It was on Saturday and Sunday and it started at around 8 or 9 am. I only stayed for a little bit but I did take a lot of pictures. I will post them to the gallery later. So if you ever want to visit a dragon boat festival, just visit their website.
To be honest, I really enjoyed the festival and if anyone ever wants to join a team and is a high schooler in the Cerritos-Artesia area, there's always the JAWS team.
I know this is really late for a weekly update but I kind of forgot about it. Sorry but enjoy reading about what I did last week.
On Monday, I was at academy when I got the news; we are going to camp on Tuesday. Camp is an annual trip to Big Bear Lake where the kids going to 6th grade and up get to go to a cabin and hang out for 3 days. It is always fun to go and get away from the city. Anyway, it was supposed to be next week but some students had registration at that time and most of them wanted to go so it was changed to this week. So we were told to ask our parents if we could go to camp in the few hours we had and get everything ready for the next day.
On Tuesday, it was time for camp. Let's just say there was a lake behind the cabin so we just hung out there for most of the day or downstairs where there was a ping pong table. It was a really great three days away from home but I did miss my bed. I hated sleeping with about eight girls in one small room. At least I got to sleep on the bed. We stayed until Thursday and it was more fun this year compared to the previous three years because we actually left the cabin to go to the park. It was within walking distance but there were many hills and it was so tiring. At least I had fun tho.
When we came back from camp, it was almost two o' clock. We had lunch and then most of the kids left. I unfortunately had to stay there with my sister until 6 pm. We were the last people there and I really wanted to go. My mom came to pick us up and then on Friday we just stayed home. We've been out for too long and we needed a break from traveling.
And that's it for that week. Sorry again for the late update. Hope all of you guys are having a great summer and then if you guys are going back to school soon, good luck with the new school year.
So I know I've been posting about my trip but I just haven't had time to post about what I have done after my trip. During these past few weeks, I have been going to summer school where I have English and math in the mornings and then in the afternoon, we do activities like book club, playing tennis, learning Spanish, and go swimming. Personally, I don't go to learn Spanish anymore since I have already learned what is being taught so I go to a hospital to volunteer with the patients and then I go and play tennis on Wednesdays. Also, I was going to go to Disneyland with some friends but the plans got cancelled due to the lack of attendance. So instead, we went to Mother's Beach on Friday. It isn't really a beach; it's more of a river.
Also, I've downloaded the new Pokémon GO app and so far, I'm at level 5. I also joined Team Valor today! If you guys haven't got the game yet, it's pretty fun and you should give it a try. I haven't really done anything interesting since my trip to New Orleans but I will find more time to blog since now I have wifi.
Anyway, that's it for this week and I hope you like my future posts. (Since this one's not that great.)
