Hey everyone! today is our tenth day of the STN trip! Today we woke up, and went straight to disney! So the first ride we did was Indiana Jones, and that was less scary than I thought it wold be but it was very fun and freaky. It was funny when I ducked down because I was freaked out in the part with all the bugs and my hair brushed on Napua's leg and she thought it was a bug and screamed. We then went on a few more rides and then to the disney youth education tour in California Adventure where we learned about how they make a movie and went to turtle talk. After the tour, the tour guide gave us fast passes to the cars ride and we had to run back to disneyland to make our fast pass to hyperspace mountain which was so awesome! It's now one of my favorite rides ever. Then we eat lunch and spent a majority of the day in tommorowland, mainly because it had tables everywhere. Next we walked back to adventureland where we went on pirates of the caribbean ride which was a lot more chill than I expected except it had a few drops. Next we went over to critter county to get another fast pass to splash mountain, which was so fun and I loved it! Later after we dried off we went back to California adventure to use our fast pass for cars ride and get some dinner. We had to leave disney a little earlier since we have the flight tommorow. Thank you so much for reading all of my blogs of the trip and I will continue to do my normal blogs every week.
Hey peoples! Today was the 9th day of our trip and the awards ceremonies! So what happened was we got up, eat breakfast and hurried down to the awards ceremonies, turns out our class won 1st in Nat Package, 3rd in Anchoring, 3rd in Spot feature, and 3rd in PSA! Which was the competition I was in!!! I was so happy I cried. Anyways music video, movie trailer, and silent film won honorable mention. We sat by Castaiac and the other Hawaii schools, who won a bunch of stuff.
After we went to disneyland where I got terrified on the ferris wheel and we had an awesome time.
Tommorow I will pretty much be talking about disney since that is what we are doing so remember to read that. Bye Bye!
Hey awesome people reading this blog today! Today is day 8 of the trip, and I have loved everything we have done so far but Im not looking forward to leaving, however, I do miss my family and stuff. Anyways, me and my team aka Jasmine and Rayden had to get up really early to go eat breakfast since our competition started first. Once we got our topic, which was about nutrition, we came up with a funny idea about healthy eating. Pretty much what happened was Mia M, Kirra and I were sitting down with Carter eating fruit, however Carter was eating chips that weren't healthy, then we decide to play tag and Carter falls asleep in the middle of the courtyard. After filming the PSA, Jasmine and Rayden went to edit, and I had to go to a few breakout sessions and luckily we made the deadline, however Taylor decided to prank us by fake crying which she did an amazing job of, and saying they put it in the wrong basket, but she got us and I swear someday I will prank someone back. A bit later we went to the Angels game and I bought a nice hat and a ball for a god price, then we watched the game, it wasn't as cool because it was spring training and baseball doesn't involve the audience as much as basketball does, anyways, I had an awesome day and remember to check out tommorow to see if CKMS won!!!
Hey people! Today is the 7th day of our trip! So today we got up and eat breakfast, then I went with Asia to a couple breakout sessions. Then Kirra needed my help so I acted in her music video as a person in it, when we finished filming her music video, which was using the song "Outcast" Amber and Kirra went to the ballroom to edit the video, in the meantime, I went with some of the other guys to the super session where a guy talked about all his filming movies experience and stuff.
Later, when everyone finished editing and everyone was together, we went over to the Cheesecake factory to eat dinner, It took Amber a bit to order, so we got our food a little late, but it was yummy, I got spaghetti and meatballs. When we finished eating, we walked back to the hotel to see the exellence awards where Castaiac middle school won an award for a film about lunch gossip. I like that, it was fun, tomorrow we will be competing, so remember to read that one. Thanks for reading!
Hello all the amazing people reading my blog! Today we had our Crazy 8's competition at STN. So first Asia and I woke and headed over the Uncle Don's room to get breakfast, I had cocoa and some rice, and it was good, then, we went to the second floor to wait for Kolten and Napua to get our topic for the short film, which was "Tommorow the World" and we decided to do a video where everyone is kind of mean and the girl I play is the only nice one and tries to make to world a better place, the problem is, that Napua, who plays my friend, doesn't agree and acts like everyone else. Like at one point she throws a cup of water at Kolten who plays a homeless kid, but I give him change. In the ending we had a fight scene where Napua gets into a scrap and the boys push her into the ground, but I come in and start whacking them with water bottles and I help Napua out. Then she realizes what being a nice person means and changes her ways.
We were able to turn the video in with 3 minutes to spare. However, the News team exported the wrong file and only turned in a five second standup when they had a whole video ready. Taylor burst out crying, and I felt really bad for them and Ty made me cry because he was so positive about it, and when Mr M went to talk to everyone and tell them it was okay, Shayne and Kate started crying too. It was a mess, then for some reason, Taylor and I started making jokes and feeling better, and the whole media did a group hug. But Shayne didn't want to hug so Evan had to make him get up and be with the group. Later we went to get dinner and watch the open ceremony, which had some good speakers but some were saying the same thing twice and everyone was tired so it was hard to pay attention.
In all it was a crazy day, (no wonder they call it crazy 8's) but it all turned out well, thanks for reading and remember to read tommorow's blog!
Hey guys! Today was the fifth day of our STN trip! So starting off today we woke up and went to McDonald's for breakfast. I got pancakes there, and I was sitting by Jasmine Asia and Kirra. After breakfast we got on our bus and drove over the the Anaheim Angels stadium, there we saw the spanish news station, the room where they draft people, and even the actual stadium where the players played baseball, but they had one rule identical to our normal school, no stepping on the grass, they had it for a reason of keeping the grass good for baseball, but our school just wants it to look nicer. But anyways after that we departed the Angels and drove all the way back to Hollywood, and we got to tour the actual Disney Animation Studios!!! We saw the making of things like Moana, Frozen, and Wreck-it-Ralph. Also we found out about a movie that Im really excited to see, but I don't know if I can say it, so just be prepared for an awesome movie. But the best thing was is...WE SAW JOSH GAD!!!!!!!! It was so cool, the lady giving us the tour just stopped because she knew he was coming in, and we didn't have a clue why, but then he walked into the room and said Hi to us!!!! I was so excited and at first I felt as if it was him, but I didn't know, but turns out is was and that was SOOOOO cool!
After the disney tour, we drove back to Anaheim and finally met our pen pals and exchanged gifts, my pen pal's name is Adelina, and she id so nice and awesome! After we met them, we walked down to Bubba Gump's and had a really great dinner with them, lastly we walked back to the hotel and here we are now! Thanks for reading and I'll see you tommorow!
Hey everyone reading! Today is the Fourth day of STN! Today we checked out of the hollywood hotel and drove over to Bob's Big Boy where we had breakfast. After that we went to the walk of fame and I took pictures with a lot of stars, then we went to the hollywood mall and I went to Sephora to buy some lipstick for my mom and a lip mask for myself, In hollywood, there is a lot of weirdos there and people dressed up in costumes.
Next we drove over to Anaheim and checked into that hotel, but the key we had didn't work and we had to wait about 30 minutes in to boy's hotel room because we needed somewhere to put our stuff. A bit later we got our hotel room and chilled for a little, then we walked over to downtown disney and eat dinner and went shopping, I didn't buy anything, but I went to another Sephora and Amber, Taylor, Mia and I tested some of the weird colors and we had fun, later we walked back to the hotel and now we are in our room!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for tommorow's blog
I will put pictures here...
Hey guys! Today was the third day of our STN trip! So starting off the morning Asia and I went down to get breakfast with the other guys at the hotel, we both got croissants. Next we walked up the sidewalk to Universal! When we got there, the first thing we did was go to Harry Potter world and ride the hippogriff ride. The ride was really short and I think it was okay. Then Amber wanted to go to the Simpsons world and we all went on the Krustyland ride, it was a very long wait but I liked the ride.
After that, the first group went to their tour and we went down to the lower part of Universal and went on the Transformer ride, which was like the Simpsons ride but better, then we went to the creepy mummy ride which scared the jeebies out of me. After that we went to the Jurassic Park ride, which started off very calm then turned scream-worthy, which I thought was really cool, we ended the ride with a thirty foot drop into the water and that was my favorite part. After the ride was over we went to the minion store and got lunch.
After lunch we had an awesome tour full of crazy suprises, and I loved it so much. One of the cool things was a pretend earthquake in a subway, the floor dropped, a bus fell through the roof, and there was a fire, then from the stairs came a crazy realistic flash flood.
When we finished the tour, we went to Minion world and hung out there for a bit, then we went to Honeydukes in Harry Potter world and bought some cool candy. Then we all walked over to the main attraction, the Harry Potter ride. It was so awesome, and it felt as if you were actually there, the freakiest things were the spiders and the dementors, but it was kinda funny because the ride stopped randomly when the branch of the whomping willow was right in front of us and I was afraid it would hit me in the face when it started, but luckily that didn't happen.
A little bit later we walked over to the City walk and got dinner. Then we got to shop and I spent pretty much all of my time in the candy store where I bought Toxic waste and a box of candies that looked just like sushi.

Hey everyone! So as you know I am in California right now to compete in STN, Mr M said we can skip the first day of blogs, since it would be incredibly boring to be talking about plane flights and blah blah blah.
Anyways, starting off the day I woke up of course and Asia (My Roommate) and I started to pack our small backpacks. We went down to order breakfast at a little shop in the hotel, I ordered hot chocolate and a fruit cup. After breakfast, we hopped on the bus and drove to Warner brother's studios, there we had an awesome tour, and we learned that a bunch of television shows shot there were things like my favorite, the Big Bang theory, Friends, Gilmore girls, and even the Ellen Degenres show! On the cart, quite a few people said they saw the actress who played Bernedette in the Big Bang theory! Me, I didnt see it, because I was looking forward the whole time, and Im me. After we got to go on the set of the real live Ellen show! We saw the X where she walks out, and we sat in the seats her real audience sits! A bummer though is we were not allowed to film inside the set because spoilers, but there were none and it really wasn't a big deal.
When we finished the awesome tour, we went to this gift shop that had a ton of Harry Potter, Friends, Big Bang theory, and Batman stuff. I just bought a Ravenclaw lanyard because I lost my other one and a Bazinga! magnet for my dad.
After we finished at Warner brothers, we drove to lunch which I had Carl's Junior and then to UCLA, the campus was really pretty, and the biggest campus Ive ever seen, there we learned how to apply for college there and what we would learn. We watched this creepy short film that a student made that Tim Burton saw and turned into a movie. I liked the presentation, but Warner Brothers tired everyone including me out and a few other kids fell asleep so that was okay.
Then we went on an hour bus ride to go to see the Lakers play the Timberwolves in basketball. I really liked the game, and sometimes cameras showed random people in the audience dancing, and no matter how hard we danced, the cameras didn't point at us. The game was awesome, and Shaquille O'neal was there watching! We got a free mini statue of him and I think I will keep mine in good shape for a while, and then sell it for a high price because people actually want these statues and they cannot get them because they didn't come to the game.
Today was awesome! Thank you for reading and stay tuned for tommorow's blog! I will add some pictures of the trip so far...
