Oregon 2019

Hi Everyone,

From October 19th to October 25th we went to Astoria and Newport Oregon. It was an amazing trip. We went did many amazing activities such as, Zip-lining and going to different Beaches. We also learned many amazing things about sea life and tsunamis. 

During this trip we had one major driving question. Being aware of your own thoughts, strategies, feelings and actions and their effects on others. I found myself in so many situations where this influenced me. One of the times I found this the most influential was on the quests. The Quests were like mini scavenger hunts around the different parks and towns of Oregon. We did the quests in groups of 5 or 6, my group was of six, there names were, Annie, Dries, Ryan, Erin and Julien. During the whole quest you had to be mindful of all those things especially your strategies and actions.


Another instance, was in the yurts. Well you were in the yurts you had to be really aware of your actions. Say at 10:00pm at night you don’t want to be to noisy. The other place I’d like to talk about is the bus. On the bus you had to control your actions even more then on the quests or in the yurts because, there was your teachers and the rest of your class. Anything you do will affect 25+ other people. The hardest times to manage your impulsivity are probably on the beach. When I’m on the beach I just want to go in the water or go on the sand dunes behind the beach. Both of which your not allowed to do. The way I kept myself from doing those things is, reminding myself that the water is really cold.

The last competency we were being assessed on over the trip was working interdependently. This was the hardest competency for me as I sometimes have troubles with working in groups.

During are trip we took photos and wrote about activities and then put those all together to create a book with book creator. Here is my book.


This is a Slider of the best photos I took on the trip.

On our trip we visited many different towns starting with Astoria and Warrenton, then Tilamook and Cannon beach area, then Newport and Finally Puyallup. My favourite place was Probably Newport but all the places were amazing.

Day 1

On day 1 we had to get to school by 6:15am! It took about 10 hours to get down to Astoria although we had a lunch stop at Clark’s restaurant. The first thing we did in Astoria was go to the Astoria Column. After that we went to the beach and looked at the wreck of Peter Iredale. That night we stayed at Fort Stevens State Park.  Day 1 was a day of managing your impulsivity which mostly happened on the bus

Day 2

Day 2 was probably my favourite day. We started the day off going to Fort Stevens and learned about many military related things. After, we went to Dairy Queen and then High Life Adventures where we went Zip-lining! Zip-lining was super fun. I was a little bit nervous at first because I had never gone Zip-lining before, but I quickly realized that I had nothing to worry about. Dinner that night was at Nisa’s Thai Kitchen which was super good. We once again stayed at Fort Stevens State Park. Day 2 was another day of managing your impulsivity and also managing your thoughts and strategies which we had to do on our first quest.

Day 3

On day 3 we started out by going to the Columbia River Maritime museum. After that, we went to Pig’n Pancake for lunch which was at Cannon Beach. Then we went to Cannon Beach and It was incredibly stormy so we didn’t stay there for long. After Cannon Beach we bussed to Tillamook. In Tillamook we went to the Tillamook Creamery. That was really cool. After we bussed down to Newport where we went for dinner at Izzy’s. That night we started our 3 day stay at South Beach State Park. Day 3 was once again managing your impulsivity at cannon beach and on the bus.

Day 4

On day 4 we started out with Quests. After the Quests we had Fish’n Chips for lunch. Then we went to the Hatfield Marine Science Center where we learned about Sea Life. Dinner that night was at the Chalet which I had to make an Advertisement for (that is another project I should have a blog post about it later this week). Once Again that night was at South Beach state Park. On this day we had to manage are thoughts and strategies and how they effected other people during our quests. We also had to work interdependently.

Day 5

This day was also really great. We started the day off by making ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicles) at the Hatfield Marine Science Center which was really cool and challenged us to work interdependently. Then we went to Yaquina Head which was amazing! Cobble beach had so much cool sea life and the quest we did at Yaquina Head was also tons of fun. After, we went to Beverly Beach State Park, it was stunning! Dinner that night was Chinese food. This was our last night in the Yurts at South Beach State Park.

This is sure a stunning sunset at Beverley Beach State Park

Day 6

On Day 6 we had to leave Newport. We started by just going to a place in Newport where we did a quest and looked at Sea Lions. Then we went to Depoe Bay which was really cool. It had this great Socks Shop. After, we back to Washington to go to John’s Incredible Pizza Company. It was a buffet and Arcade. Then we had to leave to head to Leave to go to are last spot we stay. Ike Kinswa State Park.

Day 7

This Day finished off our incredible trip. We started it off by going to the North West Trek. We saw many cool animals such as Bison, Wolves, Cougars, Beavers, River Otters and many more. Finally for our last meal of the trip we ate at the Golden Corral, the most unhealthy buffet ever! The food was great but the chocolate fountain was even better. Finally to finish the trip we bussed back to Seycove. This was a phenomenal trip! As this was the day we bussed back we once again had a long bus ride and we had to manage our impulsivity over it.

One last thing I would like to say is thank you to our awesome teachers for making this trip possible!!!!!! We all really appreciate it!!!



My Hobbies

Hi everyone,

This weeks Challenge is Free Choice. So I’m going to blog about my Hobbies. Photography, Basketball and Skiing.

Photography is a relatively new hobby for me. Ever since the end of this summer I have been interested in Photography. It started with me taking pictures of the sunsets at my cabin and my dog. But then it expanded, I started taking photos of the ocean, deer, my cousins and brother and so on. I now am just beginning to learn about photography. During the our Oregon Coast Field school (which I should have a blog post about by Monday), I really took some started to learn more about photography. I took some great shots which I will show down below. 

My Favourite things to take pictures of is more natural themed images and I also really like to take silhouettes. I have many pictures of sunsets as the sunsets at my cabin are terrific. My favourite places to take pictures are my Cabin, The Oregon Coast was really good also a really nice place to take photos, especially Yaquina Head and Beverley Beach State Park.

  • This is the lighthouse at Yaquina Head in Newport, Oregon.

  • This is a photo of the Ocean at Depoe Bay Oregon.

  • This is a Silhouette of my friends at Beverley Beach State park in Oregon I will link there blogs down below

  • This is a photo of a sunset in late August at my cabin

Basketball is my favourite sport. This year is my sixth year playing basketball. I now play for the  Vancity U-14 blue basketball team. I am a wing in Basketball which means I play shooting guard or small forward. My favourite thing to do in Basketball is shoot. Here is a video of me shooting.

I also love to watch the NBA, my favourite team is the Toronto Raptors. I am really Happy as the Raptors are right now the defending champions. If you like a NBA team please comment down below to let me know which is your favourite team.

Skiing is my other favourite sport. My favourite type of skiing is downhill skiing and my favourite mountain is Sun Peaks which is a resort near Kelowna, B.C, Canada. I have been skiing since I was 3 or about 10 years. My mom has been skiing since she was really young so she started me off with skiing very early. I started skiing on Mt. Seymour

Here are some of the reasons I love skiing. I love being in nature. and I love how in skiing you get to chose what you do, you can choose your line, you can choose if you’re going to take a jump. That’s why I love skiing

So these are some of my hobbies. In the comments please tell me about your Hobbies!

Hello everyone,

This weeks challenge is all about Photos and Copyright!

For this weeks student blogging challenge we had to explain why you can’t take most images off the web. Your first thoughts are probably why can’t you take images off the internet. The reason for that is copyright, copyright is when someone makes an image that you can’t use without permission from them. You might be asking why do they care if I use there work. Imagine this, you spend six hours writing this terrific essay and then, ne of your class mates comes and copies it and hands it in. You wouldn’t feel very good right, that’s what taking a image off the web and using for yourself without permission from the creator is like.

This is a photo I took last week at Yaquina head when we were in Oregon last week for a field school. I really like his hot because of how the lighthouse sits in the photo and in addition to the awesome scenery I think the clear sky looks really nice in the background. The amazing thing about the clear skies were when were at cannon beach just two days before it felt like we were in a storm. This just goes to show how quickly life can change.

Another part of this weeks blogging challenge was to make some image task cards. I put three Images which represent me. There is a caption beneath each one explaining them.

I chose this photo because first of all I love Basketball and secondly I like the angle

I chose this photo Because I love skiing and it is also very scenic which is very scenic and shows natures beauty which I like as well

I like this Image because it shows the beach and I love the beach and the Ocean which I spend a lot of my summer on

Big or small waves crashing against the shore

Everyone happy the changing forever more

All the amazing animals like clams, urchins and gulls

Can you spot a fish, whale or boat

How amazing the beach is, I want to there today
