Pilot Essay

What job has the best office view, you can travel the world and you are helping others while doing your job? What is it? My dream job, a Pilot! In America there is estimated to be 130,000 pilots, that are qualified. They would travel around USA and the world! You could spend 2-3 years learning to be a pilot, and you could fly around the world almost for free!

What do you have to do to get your commercial pilot's license?
It cost $6,500 to $7,000 dollars to get your commercial pilot's license. You have to get your private pilot’s license before you move on to commercial flying. STEP 1: You have to meet basic requirements vision tests, be at least 18 years old, have a log book from a verified instructor, so that they know you can fly. STEP 2: Train as a private pilot. You learn what and how to work the airplane, communications, how to move the plane, airplane operations and maintenance; some flight schools have private classes so you don't have to go to as many lessons.

Zenith Swim Meet - Recount

I stepped over all the bags carefully and sat beside Jaxson. ¨How are you feeling?¨ He asked. ¨Nervous,¨ I replied ¨Molly go to your race!¨ My mum yelled. ¨Good luck!¨ everyone said as I walked over to marshaling. They called my name and I sat in lane 5´s seat. Time had past, races had started and finish; then it was my go to stand by the blocks. The swimmers were coming closer and closer to the wall. Then the whistle blew to get up on the block. I crouched on the block, still like a statue. ¨Take your marks¨ BEEEEEEEEEEEP!
I dived into the bitter pool. The race had started; the timers were ticking; it was a race against the time. I had to beat 2:57:42, and my time was just under 3 minutes. So it was my least likely race to qualify in. The water rushed past me. Each breath was a breath of relief, a gulp of life flooded in me. Last 25m I thought to myself! A couple of meters ahead of me was a 16 year old girl but that wasn't going to stop me from catching up to here. As the time kept tic…

Writing 11/09/2017 - Persuasive Writing

Why every time you buy packet of chips there is only ¼ of the packet is full! You should get your money's worth of chips instead of salt and vinegar, sea salt etc air. I’m here to persuade you that it’s not worth paying that much money just to fill on a miniscule space in your tummy.
I think if you are at least paying $4.00 for a big packet of chips, the bag should be ¾ full at least. It’s almost the big companies don't have enough money to fill the whole bag with chips - instead they decide to fill it with air to make it look better (sometimes bigger is not the better). The attract the people by filling the bags with air so they look bigger and “have lots of chips in there;” when they don’t. Once one of my friends opened a bag of chips, she looked in and there was only 8 small chips. It’s not fair for the people buying the chips because they are wasting the money on fresh air!
That’s my next point a bag of chips cost a lot of money and they aren't that good for you. If you …

The Glebe Writing 22/08/2017

At the end of every term, of every lunchtime, of every morning tea we would grab our bikes and bike out to the glebe. We would find the perfect place by the bike path, with heaps of sticks and little pine cones to build our cafe. We would yell out to each other: “Someone get the pinecones?” “OK, I will!” “Get the little sticks that were at that good place we normally get them from!” “Someone already is!”
We would carry on yelling out to each other until we got everything we needed. Sometimes we already had the stuff from the previous day. We sorted them into piles, once we got everything. We had everything you ‘could’ get from a cafe! Like the coffee; the hot chocolate; the tea; the chocolate brownie. The bikers would bike through fast, slowing down -sometimes- when the went past us. The bikers would order the food and we would quickly rush to get them there food. We would say to pay with leaves or bark. Then they would bike off coming around the next time!

Cold Water Writing 9/08/2017

This morning and this afternoon, and every other day, when the clock hits 6:10am I dive into the icy cold water. The cold water stabs me like I just dived in a pile of nails. Goosebumps raise on me, like little mountains, and my body goes rigid. I slowly pull my body through the ice bath of water; kicking my legs to keep me afloat. The clock slowly turns 11 past 6 - after what feels like forever. I am close to the wall, I tuck my head in, and I turn. My legs hit the briskly cold wall. I push off and glide into the second length of the 200 freestyle. The water warms up as I keep swimming, turning, gliding, pulling through the water.

The Sir Peter Blake Award!

Image
On the last day of school for Term 2, The Sir Peter Blake Award was handed out. I was the person from my class who had got it. If you don't know who Sir Peter Blake is he sailed around the 5 times! He also competed in the America's Cup 3 times. The first time he won the America's Cup for New Zealand he wore the famous "Red Socks". The "Red Socks" were a present from his wife and when ever he wore them good things happened. Sadly he got killed by pirates in the Brazil seas. He was on a mission with some other scientists to find out about climate change. He said climate change was bad back in 2000, imagine what it’s like now 17 years later. In the pack I got: A book - The Story of Sir Peter Blake by Tessa Duber, A Medal, A pair of red socks and a certificate. I was nominated by Mrs Baird last year and also Mrs Frances-Rees.  “Molly is a fantastic role model, who uses her initiative and is always willing to help others.  She is a fantastic leader who is ve…

My EMBARRASSING Brother - That I Don't Have!!

Goal: Language Resources
“Why, why, WHY? Why is MY brother so embarrassing?” Well you're probably wondering why I’m going on about my brother being so EMBARRASSING, well let me explain! My brother is a very awkward, smelly (like a rotting rat was in his pocket), PS4 addicted (like a cat to catnip), geeky 15 year old, who has no friends - well he does have 1 friend…… but she’s not really real!
My Mum is a ‘go and get some fresh air’ kind of mum, so when my mum said to my brother “Go and get look at the beautiful surroundings out in the air,” he didn’t argue he just did what my mum said and got some clean air, rather than a stinky boys room. Here is the embarrassing part; He took his imaginary ‘Girlfriend’ with him! You might be thinking why is this so bad, let’s just say IT’S BAD!!
If he is in a public space he pretends to be with his ‘girlfriend’ and he does all the things that people with their ‘special friend’; like holding hands and all the other GROSS things people do with thei…
