Wow. What a great day it has been.
I’ll start in order:

RACHEL & REGAN’S BABY BOY IS BORN!
Rachel & Regan, creators of Throng, Street Talk and Idolblog, gave birth to a baby boy this morning at 8am. It was so cool to receive a text this morning (during class) with the good news! Congrats 😀

MR. FRENCH-WRIGHT’S FAREWELL
This was sad. It really was. Mr. FW is like Professor Dumbledore in Harry Potter – highly respected and whatnot. A big, formal presentation was put on to farewell him, which was just awesome. With the band and Kapa Haka groups preforming, words by the BOT chairman, Mayor, Head Boy, staff and more – it was just awesome. I’ve never heard appluse so loud in our hall!
He did get teary at a few points too. It was a really good sendoff and one thing that really was cool was when he was given a Tiger Jacket (You’ll understand if you went to NPBHS). The staff and guests left 3/4 though and left us boys and Mr. FW alone. He talked for 30 minutes about things he hated (he was asked), dreams, and about success. After he spoke his final words to the school, he was given a standing ovation as he left Ryder Hall for the last time.
All the best for your future overseas, Mr. French-Wright!
Note: Mr. FW makes a cameo appearance as the CEO of Welbourn Hospital in the OSM sequel.

I NEARLY DIED IN A CAR ACCIDENT
I got picked up after school by Dad. We were driving though a intersection (green light, rightofway etc) and a black car full of guys sped though from the left and nearly wiped me out! That really would be a disaster!

OLYMPICS 2008
Watch it. It’ll be awesome.
