AS almost all of you have seen, I somehow managed to carry myself to the front of Ward Hall along side Matt Hart. I have never viewed myself as a public speaker on any levels, I mean I'm the kid who still gets nervous when it comes to making a announcement yet alone reciting a speech in front of a crowd filled with over 300 people. I am here writing this to you all, and thanking everyone of you,( sorry if this Im making this seem like a huge deal) Especially Hayden for letting me go to the semi-finals. Im just suprized that I managed to musture up the courage to recite ant piece of any length to anyone.
Hi Im Boyd,
And I'm Jack
Today, we are share our great ideas with you if we elected as your senators
Although we may not be able to fulfill all of our ideas proposed to you today, we will certainly try our best at making this senate term your best one yet.
We all know that this will be our last few months of school, and we want to make it the best senate term ever.
Our ideas will add fun and creativity to the grade, but also it will bring us closer together.
We have divided our ideas into 3 sections,
Boyd and I would like to add a few things to your every day fenn life to spice thing up a bit.
The first thing that we would like to implement if we are elected senate is more types of food.
We all miss those delicious paninis when the lunch wasn't the best, so we would like to change that. By getting a panini maker for all to use
And if we are still talking about food, what about breakfast?
at has also come to our attention that lunch can get a bit boring, so why not throw in some pancake or waffle makers to change thing up.
If elected senate Jack and I will work our hardest to expand what the dining hall has to offer
Some other add ons would be:
Pencil staches for everyone to take from
Hidden Hi-Chew around campus for you guys to find
Sales of all kinds of food
And better sports equipment
Jack and I can get bored sometimes, as can all of you.
so to change that we have a few ideas to change things up before, during and after school
Our first Idea is to have semi-regular 9th grade breakfasts
we could use the waffle and pancake makers to prepare a quality breakfast for the whole grade.
On another note, who here likes dances with nashoba?
Who here liked getting pushed around by all the other people there?
thats why we will try our best to make a 9th grade only dance with Nashoba at least once.
And if that does not work we will be happy to try to organize other social events with the shobes
Our last proposal pertaining to social events will be class outings.
We all liked class outing such as the kimball farm meet up before school started.
So, to add to this we would like to have outings ranging from mini golf to paintball. We think that this is completely reasonable and if elected senate we would try our best to achieve this.
You all like contests and fun activities filled with banter right?
Well Boyd and I are not a normal senate candidates so we have decided to add our own twist on these activities
We will keep the same competitions and events such as
Wrestle ball and Ogs tournaments
Candy guessing jars
and more classics like that
We think some of our new ideas will add a new kind of fun here at fenn, in which everyone can participate in
First off being a Cookie Baking contest.
If we were to have a cooking baking contest, there would be teams of two, and they would be assigned to bake 3 dozen cookies (one for each student) and we would have every one of you guys vote on the best cookie and the team with the most votes will win some great prizes.
Some of our prizes would be:
itunes gift cards
skittles(or other candies)
Or fifa coins to encourage you all to play the market.
Do you guys remember the rap battles from last year?
Well we would like to host our own rap battle for all to participate in , but this time there is just one rule, you may only use chirps such as duster or bender
Our last activity proposal is a whole new level of spirit day.
It was fun to wear our favorite team’s jersey before the superbowl, but doesn't that seem a little narrow?
If elected we would like to come up with more excuses to break the dress code. At a more frequent rate
For example, we could wear our favorite soccer team’s colors during the champions league playoffs and finals. Or we could even try to break the dress code for no reason once and a while.
Just remember, as you walk up to vote for your next senate team, vote Boyd And Jack for a better ninth grade year.
I feel like I owe everyone here an apology. Over the past two weeks, weekly has been just screwing with me in ways that have been more than annoying, Every time I uploaded a post, BOOM deleted. What ever I uploaded It was gone the second I hit update. I felt like all of my efforts were futile. I couldn't comment or upload. I have had problems with weekly in the pas t with my whole plot and haiku pages being deleted, but I felt like this one was worse. It took away my motivation to write and share my thoughts will my classmates. Hell, I don't know if this post will go up, butt its worth trying. I look forward to getting back in to the swing of things and weaving myself back in to this online writing community.
Here is a video I found will browsing the inter webs. I really thicket that this video will open you eyes. We tolerate too much and let it happen to us over and over and over. It is time we take action. We have phones, now we need to use it for something thats not games. I hope that you have time to watch this eye opening video.
