Expressing thankfulness is important for the happiness of others. Most of us feel pretty thankful when good things happen to us. Like for example, I have been thankful for a lot of people recently and it has helped me out a lot. So I would like to spend the time to say that I’m thankful for all my friends and family.
I am thankful for all of my lady friends. I have known these girls for such a long time and as we all got older, we started to become better friends. Sure we had our ups and downs at times but they’re almost always there for me when I need them to be. I love that they all can put up with all my weirdness and how annoying I can be sometimes. They have seen all the sides of me like how mean or nice I can be to people. They listen to me when I wanna talk about something, instead of ignoring me. They almost always have my back no matter what happens, and frankly, there are way too many things to say why I am thankful for them. That’s why all I need to say is that I’m thankful for them being there for me. Then this would have to lead to my next set of people.
I am also very thankful for my guy friends, I’m not saying names because then people will say I like them or something like that. One of my friends has been through a lot of the same things I have and can help me out whenever I need it. I can just talk about anything to him because he understands what I’m feeling and going through. He is a great friend to me and I hope it stays that way. On the other hand, one of my other guy friends is just fun in general. He makes things way more exciting to do, he will tell you exactly what he thinks and it doesn’t matter if it’s kind of mean or nice, and I like it when people do that so I know the truth about something. I’m also thankful for the guy friends that have been there for me as well. These friends are definitely not the last thing I’m thankful for, I’m also thankful for my family.
I am very thankful for my family, I have known most of them since I was little and I am still meet new family members as I get older. My mom and dad are very supportive of the choices I make if they will help me be a better person. Like the time I wanted to try out skateboarding, I really do enjoy it now and I am happy I got to do it. I’m thankful for them because I know that there are always people how will forever love me for who I am. They motivate me to be the best person I can be, they also normally don’t judge me on all the weird things I do, but let’s be honest who isn’t weird. They have taught me a lot of things as well and if I didn’t have them in my life then I wouldn’t know that information. Like for instance, my dad teaches me how to fix different car parts so I wouldn’t have to go to a car shop for everything when I’m older. My mom has taught me how to decorate things and be strong little woman. My family is also very unique so I know that there is no one else just like mine. That’s were a lot of my thankfulness comes from basically.
I will hopefully be forever thankful for all of these people in my lifetime and I hope they know this. My friends and family are there for me and can support me, so that’s why I am thankful for them all.
In my school, every year we do something called Red Ribbon Week(RRW). This week is a very important week in my school, we talk about the dangers in drugs and why we don’t need to use them I’m going to talk about all the things we do during RRW and what my school and I have learned about it. In RRW we normally do different things like dress up for your favorite team to team up against drugs or dress up in a costume so scare away drugs. We would do something everyday of the week. My school does this so we can get to the students like me and talk about not getting in the way of the dangers of drugs. This is how all the students can show their spirit of Red Ribbon Week.
During RRW on the announcements a speaker will tell everyone a story from one of the high schoolers. They normally talk about how they, there family, or friend has used drugs and how it affected them. This has us learn about what has happened to people because of the use of drugs. Another thing I did this year for RRW was in the gym, the teacher split the class up. We talk about all of the dangers of vaping and how it’s bad for you and why you shouldn’t it.

Red Ribbon week is to present a commitment to live a safe life, healthy, and drug-free life. This is supposed to make you realize the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs and to make a decision to live a drug-free lifestyle.
It was an opportunity of a lifetime. I get to win 0ne-million dollars if I can survive two weeks on a deserted island. This is going to be a great adventure and I am hoping to have a little bit of fun, but I know for sure that it will be really hard work.
I get to bring three friends and a few things I would need for the next two months. These people are really close friends and I trust them dearly. I’m bringing my friends Cj, Gracie, and Gerimiah. They get to bring some stuff that they need and they also get a little bit of the prize money too. I’m going to bring four fishing polls, a 70 in. tent, a weeks worth of clothes, four lighters, bug spray, sunscreen, a couple pots, and a couple other things that might come in handy at one point in time.
It was the next morning so me and my friends were on the way to the deserted island. I thought to myself I’ll just go to sleep so I have some energy for the day but the only problem about that was the thing, I couldn’t go to sleep. I was to nervous so I just talk to my friends and ate some food. I was eating a meatball sub and had pepsi while I was talking to Gracie about skateboarding and different sports. When I was done eating I talked to everyone about what were we all going to do when we got to the island. I was going to set up everyones tents and make an area for eating and relaxing. Gracie was going to go to fishing with Gerimiah and she was also going to boil some stream water so we can drink it. Cj was going to go get some wood for fires and to start making a shelter out of wood.
When we got onto the island we started doing are jobs for the day. It took me like an hour or two to put up the tents and an hour to make the bond fire area. The tents were about five feet apart each and I also put everyone’s stuff in there tent as well. I wanted everything to look nice for some reason, but I came to the conclusion that I just wanted to feel like I was at home. I didn’t really miss my home that much yet but I know that I will soon. When everyone was done doing their jobs we all decided to eat some fish that Gerimiah caught. When we were done everyone went to bed. It was quite but I had a super uncomfortable feeling and I didn’t like it so I went outside of my tent and turned on my flashlight. Everything seems normal so I just when back in the ent and fell asleep. During that night I had a dream that me and my friends are all drowning we are stuck underwater but we could not get out and that we are just a foot from the surface. When I woke up I didn’t know what to do I was shook.
In the a day or two later, I was having the same dream over and over and over non stop. It is driving me crazy and my friends are starting to notice something was wrong. Everytime they would ask if there was something wrong I would deny it, but then I decided to tell them. When I told everyone they were being supportive about it and and Gracie was saying it was all going to be okay.
After I got used to having the dream I started doing better and working more. By this time we have some barrys and fish that we can eat and some stored water. I think that we are doing just fine and that we are all going to be okay. I made breakfish since I was the first one up all I did was poor four glasses of water and had out napkins full of barrys for everyone to eat. After everyone ate we went off into groups because we thought it would be safer. So Cj and Gerimiah went fishing and after that they are supposed to go and get some wood. Me and Gracie are going to go get some barrys and more water to boil so we can drink it. When me and Gracie got back Cj and Gerimiah were not there so we went go find then but when we got there we found Gerimiah knocked out and cj was gone. When we woke Gerimiah up we all went to go find cj but he was nowhere to be seen. So we all went back to the camp hoping he was there but he wasn’t. When Gracie asked Gerimiah what happened he had no clue and that’s when we all started t freak out. It was dark out so we all went to sleep but we all decided that in the morning we would look for him.
That morning we went looking for him, we only have two days left before we were going too have to go and that was a short time period. We looked all over then island and found nothing so we look around the water and in the water and that’s when we found him we didn’t know if he was alive or dead so we had Gerimiah cheek. He said he was alive and that it looked like he had been knocked out by something. When we were walking back to camp Gerimiah was carrying him then he finally woke up, we asked him if he remembered anything at all but he said no. When we got back to camp we all went to bed we were all tired after today and needed some rest.
When we all woke up we decided on getting most of are stuff packed up for tomorrow for when we leave. It wasn’t all that hard to be honest, all we really had to do was pack up are clothes and some of the supplies we brought. So when we were done I made some food for everyone which was the same thing that we has been eating for the past two weeks. When we were all done doing that I checked Cj and Gerimiah for any injuries that they had. All Gerimiah had was a bump on his head and cj had a black eye. After that I talked to Gracie about how this was a bad idea but we would at least get that one million dollars. Then she asked this, what knocked out Cj and Gerimiah. This thought had scared me a lot because we had no idea what or who would have done it. I told her I don’t know and not to worry about it to much, but to stay close to everyone.
The next morning it was time to go, I was extremely happy to go. I was tired and scared that’s all I was feeling basicly. Everyone else look tired but we were all going to try to have some fun on the flight before we all went our separate ways for a little bit. When I went to the bathroom on the plan I accidently dropped my phone in the toilet. I screamed and everyone came to the bathroom and started laughing at me but I was so mad I haven’t got to use my phone in two weeks and it was gone just like that. After this we went back to our sets because the plain was about to land. I was glad to be home to my normal life and was kinda excited on what was going to come next.
