Track & Field

Last week, Redstone PS had their annual track and field events. In this blog, I will talk about my experience with this year’s track and field.

A week before the actual events, we had to sign up for our events. I signed up for all the field events, the 200m, the 400m, and the 1500m runs. When the first track and field day came, my class was the first outside. After a few minutes, the rest of the classes came outside. Then the girls and the boys were separated, so then we could go to our events. The grade 8 boys first event was the 100 m dash. Initially, I did not sign up for the 100 m but I decided to do it anyway. I asked the teacher if I could sign up along with some other students. Unfortunately, I was put into heat with some pretty fast people. In the end, I managed to get third place in the heat. After doing our 100 m we had to do the triple jump, which I also signed up for. Then after the triple jump, we had running long jump. After those three events, it was time for lunch and we didn’t do any more events.

The next day we continued our track and field events. We finished the rest of our field of events. After our field events, we did our track events. Our track events that day were the 200 m, the 400 m, and the 800 m. I participated in the 200 m and the 400 m. I didn’t do really good in any of them, but I still tried my best. By the end of the second day, we completed all our events except for the 1500 m run. On our third and final day, the grade 8 boys did their 1500 m run. Even though I did not get a really good time I’m still happy I managed to complete the run.

Overall, I’m really happy this year of my track and field. This year I managed to do all the events except for the 800 m. Even though I did the 1500 m I probably won’t do it again. In the end, I’m really happy that I managed to do so much track and field this year.


This week I will be talking about the game Warframe.

I have been playing for the past month, and I have enjoyed the game so far. The game takes place in a fictional solar system. The goal of the game is to save the system from aliens. In the game, there is little character customization. The reason you don’t have your own character is because you select a character. In Warframe, you select a Warframe and that will be your character. I am currently using 3 Warframes and I’m switching between them.

I believe the gameplay is alright but it has some bugs. For example, the game is in a third-person perspective. In third-person games, you look over your character shoulder, not through their eyes. However, this kind of view can lead to weird camera angles. Like if you crash into a wall, you can see outside the world. Another gameplay mechanic is the physics engine. This means you can do really cool stuff. However, if you pin an enemy to the wall weird things starts happening. Overall, I really like the gameplay.

The plot in the game is decent. The problem is the requirement to proceed is really high. For example, one requirement to move the story is to kill 250 enemies in one mission. So I usually repeat the previous mission on a harder difficulty. However, the game is not all about the story missions. You can do a regular mission with other people. Overall the plot is not the best but play with people is fun.

In the end, I think Warframe is a great game. The gameplay is good but it has some bugs. Overall, this is a wonderful free to plays game.

The Division

The Division is a third-person MMO shooter created by Ubisoft. In this blog, I will be talking about my opinion on The Division.

The most interesting thing about this game is that it is the only MMO shooter on the PC (until Destiny 2 comes out). The biggest problem with the game is with all the bugs and glitches. However, from my short 2-days of experience I have not encountered any problems yet. I believe that this game has ruined its reputation because of it’s bugs and poor launch. Thankfully, the game has been making a comeback ever since patch 1.6.

The gameplay of the division is alright. It has a variety of weapons, but it lacks end game content. Some other problems to point out is that the character customization is horrible. All the enemies are bullet-sponges and there are a lot of hackers. However, these problems have been become less and less of a problem with patches.

Overall the Division is a good game. However, the bugs ruin the PvE while the hackers ruin the PvP. I believe the Division can become a good game with a bit of tweaking. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t buy it unless it was on sale. If you like MMOs and shooters this can become a great game for you.

Motor city cat show

Last week, Mommy, aunty Lily, and I went to the Motor city cat show. We left early in the morning at around 9 o’clock. This was early for me since it was the weekend. The drive took around 45 minutes, but I slept for most of the ride.

When we finally arrived, we had to get our tickets from the front booth. The first cats we saw when we entered the building, were Bengal cats and some Montreal Balinese cats. We didn’t take a closer look at the Bengal cats because mommy had to talk to a Balinese cat breeder. After listening to mommy and the breeder talk, I got bored. Soon, I started looking through the booklet that we got from the booth. The book was full of ads and cat facts.

Later, we found out that the breeder’s cat entered one of the shows. So we sat and waited for the show to begin. The show was not what I had in mind when I thought of a cat show. Instead of cats running around, I saw a woman handling the cats and looking for the best cat. After the show, we found out that the breeder’s cat had entered several other shows. However, we were told that those shows won’t start until later in the day. After the show, mommy talked to the breeder again. Since I had nothing to do, I looked at all the other cats. I saw different shows and saw different cats. In my opinion, the cutest cat I saw was a Ragdoll cat.

Eventually, mommy finished speaking with the breeder. We then looked at all the different cats together. When we were about to leave, mommy started talking to another breeder from Montreal, so we spent another 30 minutes talking to the breeder. Eventually, we left the building and went home.

Overall, I think my cat show experience was a bit anti-climactic. It was not what I expected of a cat show. Still, seeing all sorts of cat breeds in one building was very cool. If I had a choice, I would go to a cat show again.
