More Days on Board

Day 23:    

 I've been on board The Boss for what seems like forever from now. Often times, I think about my children and my husband waiting for me, wondering if I'm OK. I sometimes wonder to myself if I will survive this journey or not. A tiny bird once came to our ship and told us that on some other ship, on man got scurvy and died. I don't know who send the message, but it was terrifying and interesting. I don't want to put my children through what I went through.
 When I was very young, my father went away from my mother and I never saw him again. I was three at the time,and I would always ask about my father, but my mother never made a response. She would just say everything happens for a reason,( whatever that means.) Iv don't know if he is still alive or not.
 Hoping, that we would pass checking our supplies and ship, we found out that our mass broke. Thankfully, we were able to find a tiny little island, and repair the ship. Once in a while, it comes to me, did I really want to take this journey? Did I really want to leave my friends and family, not knowing what will happen to them nor me? But then, there are reasons for wanting this journey. To have better money paying, so I can put more food on the table, and keep a roof over our heads. My children having a better education. There's not that much to learn about, but I always try my hardest.
 I crew's mood is changing all the time. Sometimes they're in a great mood, next thing you know, they're holding up against a wall yelling in your face. Personally, my mood doesn't change that much, but sometimes I do get sick of my crew. But you know, it is what it is.
 Often, I get really hungry. We have to keep our food in good supplie through out the whole journey. That means not a lot of people get anything at all.  

My Goals For The New Year

   I have a lot of new goals for the new year. Some of them are, that I want to improve on doing my chores, faster and better. Another reason is, that I want to be able to read better. I'm already fluent in my reading, but I just want to be able to get into the story better.
  To add onto that matter, I want to not be in a bad mood about things. Like often times I get mad when someone says something that really hurts my feelings. I want to work on just letting it go, and think about how car-ma will come back at that person instead of getting back at them.
   This is important because, if you let things go, it will make your life a lot easier. 
   I would also like to spend more time with my family, and do more family activities together.
   Lastly, I want to make sure I end 5th grade with good acting responsibility, and start middle school with good grades and good responsibility. 
As a conclusion, I have a lot of new year goals,and I really hope to reach them all after the new year.    

How Do I Learn Best

Some of my learning strengths are, that I can easily be able to learn by best when I do Auditory Learning. Auditory Learning is when people learn better by talking out loud, the sound of music helps you maybe constraint, and you learn the best when you hear things more than once. 
For example, when my mom says clean your room, then she says do the dishes right after she says to clean my room. I usually say " didn't you just ask me to clean my room?" Then she usually repeats herself.

The Trouble, The Butterflies, And The Relief

 Day 21:

What is going to happen to the crew and the ship! We have been out at sea for a couple weeks, and our supplies are already going bad. I look at my crew for help on the supplie check. They look at me like I'm going to die and they don't care, or you better get yourself together, or you'll get thrown overboard.
Suffering the butterflies in my stomach, I swallow hard and keep going. The other night I heard that some other ship with crew members,it got so bad because one of the men weren't passing their test, and they're deck almost caught on fire!
Holy smokes! What if that's the condition my ship and crew's going to be in. I'm probably going to get thrown over board, or the ship could catch on fire, or our food and supplies could go bad.

My New Life

I didn't know it was going to be this bad! I've been sailing on my ship with my crew for what has seemed like years, but it's really only been a couple weeks. It's August 1,1495, being the helmsmen was a lot more difficult then I thought.
We had to have a check on or supplies and how the moods of the ships crew were. It was captain Mr. Moore's orders that he told us before we set sail. It was challenging sometimes because we sometimes wouldn't get enough wind to be able to keep going.
We would sometimes stop to take a break from sailing, and to tell you the truth,I sometimes get really sick of my crew. Most of the time they don't listen to me,or we don't get along. When captain Mr.Moore explained to me what I would be doing, I thought it wasn't going to be that hard. Now I'm having second thoughts.
We got back onto the ship and waited until the wind got a chance to pick up a bit, then we were on our way. Most of the people in the crew were on there because something happened to them. Some got fired, some were in jail,and wanted to get out because they couldn't stand it any more. I myself had a family, job, and a tiny cosy little house to talk care of.
We had been sailing for what seemed like forever. More checks on supplies, and crew's mood. Thank goodness no one has left the ship because we really need the whole crew. I couldn't run the ship by myself, even though I'm pretty good at figuring out how to do things, and figure them out by myself. I couldn't help but wonder why these crazy people would want to do this, you know. I mean I wasn't really ready to do this, but how could I say no? Well better get back before I get another lecture about how I'm not supposed to be writing, I supposes to be driving the ship!
