Hi all!

For this blog post, I am supposed to write about my favourite place in my city. In the most honest answer, my favourite place to be is my home. I love cooking, watching movies, and spending time with my family. But Brantford has many options that I could write about that would make you want to visit. There is a great hangout for teenagers and kids called Wacky Wings, where they can play games in the arcade which is very original for our town.  If you’re into hockey, there is a fantastic sports centre called Wayne Gretzky sports centre (Wayne Gretzky is from Brantford), and there are great arenas there. But my favourite place would have to be a little nook off the trail found in Apps Mill, a lovely large forest. There is a rope swing and it has a mini sand beach where you can sit and have lunch and then hop into the natural river when it gets too hot. One of my favourite parts is that there is barely ever anybody there, so you get a chance to think and have fun with your friends and family without distractions.

If you have a chance, I seriously suggest going to check it out and looking for my rope swing,

Lacy

Its here! Pageant week has arrived so have you gone and voted yet? Make sure you pick up the link from my Facebook page and go and vote for me to win the “people’s choice award”! It would be a big help in getting me into the top 20! Well, anyways, yesterday was the very first day of the pageant and it was very eventful. I live in Ontario, so I had to be at the hotel for 4, and my parents took me out for lunch before. We figured they would be able to help me unpack, but the second I got to the hotel I was whisked away to meet the other girls to mingle before getting our rooms assigned. So obviously I was sad to say goodbye to them, so I started crying. And by crying, I mean serious waterworks. I wasn’t told we would be meeting the girls so I just let the tears fall. Bad decision on my part, because my first impression to all the delegates was a red, puffy face, and a runny nose. After that, we went to our rooms where we got a chance to hang out with our roommates, and I met Kendyl, who is an absolute sweetheart! Then we went to a conference room where a bunch of sponsors were set up, handing out free products! I will tell you more about that in a later post…and after that we had pizza and cake and headed to bed to share the voting links. http://www.missteenagecanada.com/mtcw-finals/finalist-details/507

Thanks for reading,

Lacy

The pageant wanted all the girls to create a possibility of a banner to use for next competitions. I love art, but, after grade 9 I stopped taking it to pursue the sciences. I never have taken graphic design or anything like that, but here is my banner created on microsoft publisher to the best of my ability! Enjoy! And thank you to Sign Source for donating the banner!

Hello!

So yes it is true, I am a G2 driver now, which means I can drive by myself, or on the highway! When I was younger, I would constantly crash the Barbie car, and then after that stage I began to crash my bike. Basically, driving did not seem like it would be a good fit for me, or things with wheels. But after 10 hours of in car lessons with my awesome driving instructor Sylvia from Drive Wise, I met the ministry standards! I do have pictures of me before and after my test, but they are on my damaged phone. If I can restore it I will be sure to post!

Watch out for me on the road,

Lacy

Everybody who hangs around me for even a second knows about my love of sports. I feel like they are a fantastic way to express yourself and to make friends and stay healthy all in one. That is why in grade 9 I joined the basketball, volleyball, rugby, cross country, and track teams. Then, in grade 10 captaining both basketball and rugby, as well as playing on volleyball, badminton, cross country, and track. This involvement has helped me to become as confident as I am today.

At the end of every year, we have a celebration of all the sports teams, regardless if they were successful or not. This year, I was only able to stay at the banquet for an hour or so before I had to head home to finish a history project. I finished that project, so now that that project is history I can tell you about the banquet! *drum noises from after a joke*

Alex, Hadleigh, me, Katrina, Ipsita, and Kendra!

I got ready with my friends before it started and then we all went together. They are all so pretty! I won a hat, and I had a delicious salad. So I would say it was a great night.

Congratulations on the year BCI Athletics,

Lacy

Eva and her very first Iced Cappuccino!

Eva and her very first Iced Cappuccino!

Now that you’ve read the title, I will give you a second to collect yourself from nearly breaking down from your empathy for their situation. Every year that we have a Spanish student, one of our first stops is at Tim Horton’s and get Timbits and Ice Capps not onl because they are pretty much Canadian delicacies, but also because they do not have Tim Horton’s in Spain. They love it so much when they try it!

First Tim's date of many!

I am so proud of my Country’s huge contribution to society of Tim Hortons.

Kisses,

So, since my phone is damaged and unusable, I’ve resulted to using the IPad. Of course the photo quality is not great, but at least I have something to keep you updated with. I have so many experiences I wish I could show you but all the pictures of them are on my phone. Now, I am left with only images I seemed to have backed up like this:

My friend while we were on a shopping trip. I'm surprised she didn't make this purchase.

I am going to keep my phone in rice and see if I can get the rest of my photos back.

Until then,

Lacy
