How to be a good friend

Throughout the years friends have come and gone. But people may not know what friends are and to have friends are very important. Friends are important because when you are down who will lift you back up and push you even harder. Friends may have different qualities and personalities that you may like or may not like, but I guess that is life. A friend is a person that is loyal,loving,and is most definitely kind, either to you or friends around you.

To be a good friend you need to motivate people, encourage them. But sometimes they can become more than just friends they can become apart of the family. To be a part of the family would be an honour. But one of the things that our principal Mr.Burt told us was that people could get jealous and try to drag you down.

But there's a downside to being a friend you could get caught in mayhem they may affect your friendship. But hopefully someone will be the bigger person and apologise. And sometimes their are people that always think their right. but I guess that’s what happens.

To be a good friend is crucial it could help build stronger relationships with other people. But there's a saying that I like to remember and it is “ friendship is perfected until it is shared.” Which means friendship is not likely to grow unless you share it. So you share the friendship you have to other people to grow the friendship and make and meet more friends.

I have come to conclude even though there’s a downside to having a friendship doesn’t mean you give up straight away it means you keep on trying until you can know longer push. But even though this friendship you have with a friend may not work maybe someone that you never thought possible would like to be a friend with you.

Being fit

Did you know your body is an amazing machine? It just needs to be used everyday to keep it working well.

Exercise keeps your body strong and fit. Fitness means having the energy to work, play, and do all the things you want to do easily. Your body can not store fitness,so you need to exercise regularly to stay fit.

Exercise makes you feel and look better. It keeps your body a healthy weight, it helps you relax, and sleep better. And when you exercise your body produces chemicals called endorphins, which go to your brain and make you feel good.

Exercise for strength makes your muscles stronger. So you can work different parts of your body, with out feeling weak. Exercise for stamina makes your heart and lungs stronger,and helps blood flow easily around your body. Stamina is the ability to exercise for longer without getting tired or out of breath.

So you need to move it!

My explanation writing capitals

 WALT: write an explanation telling people what capitals letters are and when you use them.

Do you know what capitals are? Well capitals are upper case letters, which mean they are bigger than regular letters. Capital letters are different to normal letters because capital letters are different shaped. Isn't that a bit weird. Couldn't they be the same shape as lower case letters, for example: qQ. these two Q’s are very different.

Capitals are used in many ways. They are used for naming geographical places, geographical places are either places in the world or places of cities in a country. For example I live in Auckland, New Zealand

In year 2 they would have told you that the only place you could put a capital letter was at the beginning of the sentence and after a full stop. But thats not all you also put a capital letter after a exclamation mark, a question mark, and when a new character speaks. For example: “I would like some crab sticks” “I am so sorry we are out of crab sticks.

Not only do you use capitals after exclamation and question marks. You can use them for titles. Even Aucklands most prized possessions or icons start with capital letters. For example: The Sky Tower has a wonderful view.

There's one occasion that you could use it which is for dates. That means you could use it for the months of the years or the days of the week. For example: Today is  Wednesday of October.

As you can see capitals are quite vital. You would need to use them the right way. The reason is because your audience needs to understand your message, and understands what you are saying.

Bad ending

Fog covered the grass like a thick blanket. And owls hoot like an annoying alarm clock. Their it was a abandoned house, I have heard many stories about this house. People say there's still someone living in that house. But how could you the wood of this darked coloured house was part gone and this house was unstable. But there's only one way to find out which is go in.My name is Zak Hemmingwell and this is an adventure of mine.

But I wasn't going alone I had to take a right hand man and his name is Franklin wart himmer . Although his last name may sound disgusting he is good at bumping off, and when I say that I really mean it because when he runs he is like an unstoppable force. But there's a downside he does seem to weigh about 200 kgs. And no offense but he may break the house.  

But I had no other choice it was either him or Michael Harrow. And trust me when I say this he is a nightmare,because he picks his nose, he smells like feet, and he goes unconscious when he is scared. Wait that could be better than crushing the house down I guess.

Maybe you could help me pick either Michael or Franklin. Please help me decide. Maybe you could vote. If you vote Franklin comment in the comment box and comment the number 1357,or if you decide Michael vote the number 2468.

For the viewers that had red this story this is not the finished product. This is a quick story that I have whipped up. There will be a second copy which will be even better. And if you do like this story make sure to make a comment and maybe I could make a series of Zak's adventures. Thank you for reading.
