Summer Holidays

Hi everyone. As some of you may know I live in Australia, and for those who don't know you have just found out. Because I live in Australia it is summer and so I am on summer holidays but now I am in my last week which makes me really sad 😡. I like summer holidays because...
  • My  birthday is in them.
  • I do many exciting things.
  • I don't have to rush.
  • The weather is perfect to swim in the pool and at the beach.
  • I can totally forget about school.
  • I have eight weeks away from the people at school that I don't like. 

I am also looking forward to going back to school, which I didn't think I'd say at the end of last year. Last year I was in grade seven which was my first year of high school. It was a challenge to get used to the differences after so long at primary school. I turned thirteen this month so I am now a teenager, which is exciting. I have just found out my new classes and teachers for year eight and I am surprisingly excited about getting back into the school routine next week.

I think you may be wondering what I actually did on the holidays. Well I competed in a state competition for the 4 x100 relay. I have circled myself in the photo below. It was really fun being able to run and even though we didn't win we all still had fun and surprisingly I wasn't nervous at all. (I am normally a nervous wreck before races).

We also went for a visit to a local beach but we didn't swim because it was quite windy so we just had a walk along the beach. We also had fish and chips while we were there too. Here are some photos of me on the beach.

My mum, sister and I went to visit a museum in the city and it had an exhibition of contemporary paintings from China and Hong Kong. It was really fun because they had some that were turned into videos. The air conditioning in the museum was really cold though!

We also went to a Taoist temple and I have put photos of it on my Instagram. It was cool because it was like really being in China. I felt so peaceful and calm and relaxed as I walked through the temple looking at all the paintings, sculptures, lifelike gods and goddesses sitting proud watching over everyone with incense burning and their offerings below them. Here is a picture of me in the courtyard of the temple.
