PROMPT: Teacher   Alligator   Mauve   Climbed   Tricky

The voice of my TEACHER continued to ring in my head. Why was I thinking about school? Oh, right. It’s because my TEACHER is treating me like a six year old. She gives me “TRICKY” work. You know just because I might of had special needs when I was younger it doesn’t mean that you can give 10+10 equations to solve when I’m in year nine. But that night I did something I would never usually do. I wrote a mature, complicated story that caused me to think out side the box. It said:

The MAUVE sunrise woke me from my forever sleep. It was as if ALLIGATOR was chasing me because my heart was racing and thumping louder than it ever has before. I CLIMBED up to the top of the tree and there was my death waiting for me.

PROMPT:

 

We just arrived in Italy and we were walking to a cafe. The cafe was called Buckley’s chance. The fresh air melted my heart. The colour of the water was just beautiful. It was blue and nothing but blue. The seagulls sang their song along the sandy shore. And I was lost in my own  fantasy world. When all of a sudden the ground started to shake and I collapsed to the ground. A hands holding a rod rose from the ground. You could see the purple vans tensing as they rose even higher. Suddenly the hands turned to stone.

PROMPT: but what colour should it be?

I can’t believe that this is happening! This year has gone so fast. This is the end. It’s the end of friendships. It’s the end of primary school. Goodbye friends, goodbye teachers and hello to change. It’s hard for me because I absolutely hate change! My friends and I were browsing for our outfits for graduation when we came across the shop Forever New. We all found beautiful dresses but There was a problem with mine. But what colour should it be? I started to stress out. What if I don’t find the perfect outfit for me? How embarrassing would it be?

PROMPT: Stairs River Pink Cooked Nervous

I remember that message. It stuck to me and it always will. Every time I think about it I become NERVOUS and anxious. The smell of freshly COOKED  bread that woke me every morning. The sound of the RIVER rushing down the road that let me sleep each night. The sight of my sick father walking up the STAIRS with his PINK notebook. I didn’t understand why he insisted on keeping his favourite colour a secret. But after that night I finally realised why. I finally appreciated him. I remember what he said to me before he collapsed in front of me. He said “Don’t base your life on the judgement of others. Don’t be afraid to be you. Look what it’s done to me. Judgement is our greatest fear.”

PROMPT: why would I do that?

I stood there. Lost. I looked at what was left of my life. Nothing. What have I done? Why would I do that? How could I be so stupid. I can still see the flames flashing through my mind. The memories have gone down the drain. I killed my mother. All of a sudden I heard sirens. I didn’t think. Now I’m lost. I have nothing. My life is gone forever. I ran. That’s all I can do. I didn’t make it far. I heard a gun shot. I came to a halt, fell to the ground and I felt the police place the hand culfs around my wrists. My life is over.

PROMPT: Flame   Ice   Lime   Regularly   Clock

I was dark. Late, in fact. My CLOCK was ticking. It REGULARLY did that. What am I saying it always does that. I quietly walked down the creaky stairs. I am an only child. My little sister, Victoria, died when she was six months old. She died because I was stupid, and I was playing with matches. To this day I can still see the FLAME surrounding Tori. I opened the fridge door, poured some lemon, LIME bitters into the royal blue glass and drooped exactly two ICE cubes into the cup. This is my life. Why?

PROMPT: Mrs Dixen’s house, Heidi and I once had a dream about a Moose trying to kill me.

April fools blank

I was at Mrs Dixen’s house minding my own business when Heidi popped out of nowhere. Then she grabbed my hand and took me to the game room. She sat on the floor, crossed her legs and started to do something that looked and sounded like meditating. She said:

“Have you ever felt as if you were drowning then out of nowhere a golden leaf pops up and takes you to see a squirrel who then tells you life is pain. So then you feel depressed so a moose tries to murder you in your classroom.”

PROMPT: 

Inspiration: I NEED FREEDOM TOO- Beyonce. This song is based on the “black” people’s perspective of the situation of the I HAVE A DREAM SPEECH.

My name is Lowanna. I was stolen from my home, my family when I was young. And now I’m forced to work as a slave all day. I’m one of many suffering a similar situation. We’re not allowed to have a drink when we want to and we’re not allowed to go to the toilet when we want. We are treated like this just because we are different. Obviously the white people think they’re in charge of us. I don’t think that’s fair at all. So you know what I’m going to do something about it. Hopefully I and many others will find our happy place eventually. If only there was a magical door that could lead us to where we belong.

Cape Town Crisis

Link- http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4804140.htm

Summary- Pink

Recalls- Blue

Questions- Lilac

Insight- Aqua

 

This video was about the Cape Town, South Africa, crisis. Currently Cape Town is suffering from a continuous drought. They are all dreading the day when they’ll run out of water. Also known as day zero. Residents are doing the best they can to avoid the day when their taps will run dry. They even have to go to water donations.

 

  • Cape town has had water restrictions since February the 1st.
  • The town has been restricted to 50 liters a day. And that won’t get you that far. For example: Washing the dishes is around 18 L. A 90 second shower is 15 L. One toilet flush, 9 L. Washing your hands 3 L. Cooking, 2 L. Drinking water, 2 L. 1 dog bowl, 1 L. And that’s your 50 liters.
  • Cape Town the only city that has to suffer from taps running dry.

 

  • Will the water restrictions change when the drought is over?
  • If the restrictions change are there ways to prevent this from happening again?

 

  •  Now I understand the horrible affects of a drought and what the future can hold if you get stuck in one. How scary is that? Knowing that you can run out of water at any time. Have you ever been in a drought? Comment down below.
