Netbook Refelction

For 3 years now I have owned my own netbook, the journey & the wifi connections have been fabulous its helped me get onto my Google Drive & Gmail account. This year the wifi it has been alot faster than before. One thing I have discovered is how fast you can flick through places. There are different workspaces, for example (Hold Ctrl & Alt then press the arrows).
    Throughout this year my teacher has taught me to learn & understand more of the Maori Language. On netbooks & Maori. Another thing I've learnt by myself this year is probably the way to Podcast & be able to get along with others. This one my friends Kobe (check out his blog) throughout the year he been my role model just because he's quiet, not a loud mouth or a show off.
     A few weeks ago my mum told me to man up, guess what I said back "NO" then I started to get better. One of the talent's have is the passion to play league every Saturday I think learning off my netbook helps me alot. Like watching videos off Youtube. In ways how I like to learn is like working in groups of 2 below or either by myself. Next year my goal is to type, read, & write better & improve real well. And to get better at rugby.

My Weekend at Paihia.

During the weekend my family & I went to a wedding in Pahia, it was a  4h drive from Auckland to Paihia. The ride was pretty boring . I hardly enjoyed it.
    As We entered Kawakawa & I started to feel  car sick. It was boring but then there was food in the boot. 3km left......... As we drove into Paihia I got out of the car & jumped into the ocean & I had a swim.
    Then we went back to our hotel at about 8pm & went to my cousin in laws Fathers house for dinner.Saturday  The Hotel we where staying at was the KingsGate hotel & the wedding was up the road, like almost a 5m walk to Te Ti beach. The reception was awesome food everywhere, drinks on the tab. It made my day, only because I was hungry as.
  Opposite my hotel there was my cousins hotel & mine so I went there & had another feed then went for a swim. I nearly sank to the ground cos I was so full . I enjoyed my weekend. It was a experience of a life time.. At Shippeys there fish was oily & Fatty but I still ate it......Sunday. It was our last see of Paihia We went to a breakfast & restaurant called Upperdeck.  Breakfast was awesome there.

Nelson Mandela

Rolihlahla Mandela (a.k.a) Nelson Mandela was a man who was not only a hero to his people of South Africa but to the entire world, He was a politician, a leader who changed the world. He was served the President of South Africa from 1994 through to 1999. Nelson was born on the July 18th 1918 in a small village by the name of Mveso the chief his father (Gadla Mphakanyiswa).
Nelson was a brave & courage's person, & he was a really humble man. He was the first black president of South Africa, the name Rolihlahla that was given to him meant "Troublemaker" but he wasn't really one, 27 years Nelson served in jail for trying to make his racism. A great man he was I reckon he was probably the best President out of all president of the world.

As he got older he started to get a sickness a really bad one. Nelson was a humble man and when he went to jail he never complained about why how he got into prison. When he got out of jail he campaigned straight after & tried to make everybody treated the same. So racism was a no no. A few years later he became the president & Changed the world.

"Do better than your best" he used to say. He died on the 6th of december 2013 at the age of 95.

3 Highlights of The Year

1. Rugby League: The reason why I enjoyed League this year is because I scored about 4 tries 1 runaway, I also enjoyed it because we joined together with Bailey Road to play with them & I had fun playing together.  Especially our coach Tyson Puru thanks for that awesome day.

2. Fifia has to be another highlight of the year, because first of all I was in the Niuean Group representing my colours. And I got to preform in front of a crowd more than 200 people. I really enjoyed it especially because I got to watch everyone else's performace.

3. I really enjoyed the production because I played the guitar in the band, We performed "Hey Jude" by The Beatles. The night was anticipating & the build-up to the production was fantastic & the performances we flawless. Every worked acording to plan.

Thanks For reading my highlights of the year.
