Act of God (BLOG 2)

As the days goes on, we have lost quite a few members already. Things were not easy for us to survive on the first week after we got abandoned on the island. We separated our groups into different types. We have lost some member’s while they were doing there task they have been asked to work on. Some of the reasons they died was either due to their surroundings or sometimes due to themselves.

What happened this week was not that bad, while one of the member was exploring the island, was going through the woods, and accidentally went into this quicksand puddle and started panicking, which didn’t help out and causes him or herself to sink more no one else was there to save him or herself, which we lost a member.

The hunter groups was lucky enough went out to find food for the whole team, came back with a huge big that made everyone happy for a couple of days. When out fire went out last week, we finally got the chance and found enough things to rebuilt the fire. That’s how we cooked the pig that we caught and gave everyone enough comfort or heat for the night.

Survival Journal #1 (26/01/2017)

DAY 1

A day has almost passed since we got washed up on this deserted island. There are one hundred other passengers, all under the age of 15, with no adults to supervise us. Josh and I have become leaders for no specific reason, but we are trying to do everything we can to survive. The first five things we’ve done so far are to find or build shelter, locate a water and food source, build a fire, gather useful materials, and signal for help. Although we haven’t been able to find any water or food source we’ve managed to build a shelter with the help of the older kids of the 100. We also started a fire and made a list of everything we had. Also, after discussing it with Josh, we’ve decided it was a good idea to split the kids into specific groups that do different tasks. We’ve assigned the 25 strongest kids to find or build shelter. 35 kids to locate a water or food source, 10 to build and take care of the fire, 20 to gather any useful materials, and 10 to make or signal for help. It got late fast as we did all of this which left us with no choice but to skip signaling for help. We had added large pieces of broken branches found by the beach to the fire as we needed it to heat all 102 of us. As the sun set, we huddled around the fire and fell asleep on the rough sand.

 

 

Survival Journal #2 (03/02/2017) Josh’s Part

Found a pig wondering on the island as us on the island were doing our jobs and the things that we had to do just get the day over with and hoping someone would find us in the future, since we found a pig, I quickly told everyone quietly so that the pigs wouldn’t hear us or run away, I told them to grab their things so we can capture the pigs for a our meals and share it with the community.

Since we have been working very hard trying to make sure everyone is safe and secure on the island… some of the people were saying, to not capture the pig yet and some of us secretly follow it back to it’s “Home” cause since there’s one wondering around it might be lost or just finding some food.. If we can go to where it’s from it might be more than one on the island because it can’t just be one, on the whole island since we have been here. Some of the people didn’t agree with this and thought it was very stupid, lots of people were just very hungry and not thinking what will be the effect at the end. So the oldest kind told everyone to sit back and just relax.

He was gonna follow the pig and see where it leads, he doesn’t know how long they will be. After a long hike up the hill he found a group of pigs together….

He knew where they would be ran back to where all his friends were got a few of them that knew how to hunt and caught a few of the pigs for dinner and kept some other ones for other days.. Everyone was happy and glad that they thought out the idea before they just went for it.

 

Survival Journal #3 (20/02/2017) Josh’s Part

While we’re following the pigs we find a large lake in the middle of the island. There are also fruit trees nearby. (Including coconut trees).

 

While we were taking care of our island, doing the things we needed to survive. Some things weren’t easy for us… As days go on we just hope something to happen, or people to find us. One morning everyone got up and just trying to get up and get things ready for a day.

They heard something in the bushes and thought it was gonna be an enemy that was gonna attack the kids. Then it was a big.. Some of them yelled but didn’t want the pig to notice that they were there. Some of them wanted to kill the pig’s right away. But you gotta be smart about it.

Some of the kids decided to break up in groups and then, secretly follow the pig. That’s what they did. They followed the pig for a while and the pigs brought them to a whole new location and that spot was something new that have never been seen before. That spot was filled with a whole bunch of useful materials that the  kids on the islands could use. Full of bright colorful trees. With a lot of nice watery fruits. They also count coconuts. Once they found out about the area they quickly ran back and told the oldest person in the area. They decided to tell some of the kids to go back to that area to go and get the food. Bring back to the campers. They didn’t want to collect so much each day because they didn’t want the resources to run out

Kid Nation:

How does it apply to what we have been talking about: We talked, about saving only limited people and that only 14 or younger would survive that has what happened in the book that we read so far. So in this article, they were talking about how 12 of the students below 14 had their own camera man to just capture the moment and they had to survive themselves but this cameraman didn’t help the kids they were just there to film and get the moments.

Do they think anything like that will happen in our story?: Yep I total agree, the kids wouldn’t know what they are doing and things can happen to them.

What do I think of the article? It was far enough some of the kids would have to cook their own meal and do their own clothes, that’s fair enough that’s how life is. If they are special enough somethings might be given to them like a bag of buffalo like what was mentioned in the article.

Dream

I have a dream, that I want to be a traveller and blog at the same time. Capture beautiful engines around the world create short breathtaking films that people would love to watch. There is a lot of people in the world right now that are doing it but not a lot of them are standing out from the different ones. There’s either a really good photographer in one area or a filmmaker. Someone that inspires me the would probably have to be Casey Niestat. The original class filmmaker. Matt Komo is also another good filmmaker that has a lot of effects in his film by using the latest editing software a lot of cool transition. I just want to travel around the world, go somewhere and discover new places meet new people and just live life. Might sound impossible but, nothings imposible. You’ll need to have a “Purpose” when you do something. People says that it makes you think “clearer.” Build up your confidence one something new and new places that you are going to. Makes money and you are having fun at the same time. It’s free cause companies will back you up as long as you are promoting them. You don’t need to be smart to do this. If you have something to show and it stands out from everyone else which is a good thing. Helps and inspire other people. Build audience all over the world. Promoting something you love and hopefully inspires others that have the same dream.

“It’s not what you see matter, it’s what you see”

It was a nice morning to get up, in the countryside far away from the city life. I guess it was worth coming, it was a three and a half hour drive from the city Bangkok. I didn’t want to go with my mum but then, I was like sure why not. The drive wasn’t the best. Once we got there it was already late in the evening the sun was going down and we couldn’t do anything much. The next day my mum went somewhere early in the morning before sunrise. So then I was sleeping in with my friend Adam. I got a phone call just right when the sun came up from my mum that, the sunrise was nice. That I should drive the bike off road. Just in the woods and fly my drone. The moment when we open the house door it was all nice and foggy. Couldn’t see much from my eyes other than mist. It was nice and cool. Got some beautiful drone footages and videos. The morning drive was worth it, playing songs and driving against the cool quite morning. Just full of the green life and seeing animals in the farm…..

Busy Weekend

Getting started again, as most of you may know that I like to take photos, and I like to do it in my free time. Whenever I have the chance to take photos of friends or family. I’d take that chance that I got. What I  love about doing it, the story behind it. The process took to get this kind of imagine. I have fun doing it, making new friends and learning new things all the time. Capturing each photo, editing them then sharing them on social media, getting positive and negative comments from people and learn from them. Here were photos I took, on the weekend with some of my girlfriends from different school. It was a nice afternoon we spent. Taking photos. I just want to get back in the game of taking photos every week. I use to be taking photos every week or every day there was just so much. Then things went off the line and I started lacking taking photos now I wanna get back. Probably took about a 100 photos this weekend. I’ve updated my website recently so if you want o to check out my work. Go to the photography page and go through the category at www.joshrh19.com

Independent Reading Book #5

Book Page 70-95

Chapter: Truth or Dare.

As you may know, this title is called Truth or Dare. It started off just like almost all scary movies, weird things starting to happen. First Janie’s mother left went shopping and she told Janie, that she could bring a friend over but to make sure she was at home the whole day and wouldn’t go out anywhere. So as things went her mother left and said she’d be gone the whole day her friend came over and started playing the game somewhere quite and dark in the house. Just to mess things around. Weird things started to happen. Hearing a weird noise in the background (downstairs) all of a sudden when they kept telling each other to do scary dares’ things a phone call rang. They were shocked and scared at first they didn’t know what to do. They didn’t want to go downstairs cause they heard someone entering the house and they were  too scared.

Didn’t take this photo but thought the photo would match what I’m talking about: Photo Credit to one of my favourite photographer: Dylan Fursty

“So Far So Good”

So far the school year has been great! First time in high school isn’t too bad. Just trying to get use to the teachers. See what they are like, cause they are all different. Some of them like giving a lot of work which means, we will need to complete them first before we have another class with them. Cause the teacher will already have another project / work for us to do. Some of them are chilled give us work to do and lets us have time to work on it during class. Quarter one went by really quick. I think I did “Okay” wasn’t the best I could do. My grades were really close on becoming straight A’s. Just two of my classes I got a B (88%) if I had another 2 percent. My grades would have been the best. Straight A’s. High school is a big change from middle school. Things are different. Teachers’ don’t come after you telling which work is due when. They will be lots of information thrown at you, which means you will have to take it all in very quick cause a small pop quiz won’t be far away.

WAKE – Oh, Canada

The story is just starting, it’s getting to interesting parts now, he was walking to school cause he missed his bus stop, so then while he was walking, her friend drove by asking if he needed a lift to school. He said he was fine, got to school didn’t pick any fights with anyone. Which was weird cause some kids that were bullies expected him to do something but he didn’t. Janie keeps getting into the same girls’ dream all the time. The dream was about her getting chased with by someone and she needed, help real bad. ON and on…..
