Ok, so I’m supposed to wright something about Africa for school but I’m just gonna copy and paste this excerpt from my journal.
Coming out of my shell I used to be painfully shy around kids my age. I was slightly better around adults but I still sucked. I would have my moments of courage, but still, painfully shy. It would hurt my performance at my job at the furniture store. I didn’t have to be a super charismatic salesman. No, all I had to do was talk to the customers. But I struggled heavily with that too. Then when we had the whole detour in Atlanta thing happened, I saw Josiah having a smooth confident conversation with an adult. That dude just turned 13. My mind was blown. That’s when I realized I had to step up my game. When I got to Africa I decided to go all out. I would greet people, look em in the eye, make jokes, just have confidence! I had to teach Sunday school and be a worship leader. I got pushed far outside of my social comfort zone and it was the best thing that could’ve happened to me. it feels great to get out of my shell. I just have to keep this confidence when I go home.
It really isn’t all about me The American mindset is,“It’s all about me, give me what I want, I deserve the best!”. And I wasn’t like that out loud, but subconsciously, that was me. Coming here has showed me that I took everything I have for granted. I don’t deserve anything and it really isn’t all about me. When my WiFi isn’t working it really isn’t the end of the world. The food I ate for dinner was disgusting but at least I had food. Life can get really sucky. I’m very very fortunate to have the life I have. I’m very thankful.
Overall more life experience I’ve just matured overall. My worldview has expanded greatly. Africa feels like being on a different planet. There’s a world outside of America and it’s crazy over here. I’ve gain so much experience from being in tough situations. I’m just so thankful for the whole opportunity!
April 17 2019 is when I wrote that. Obviously I learned more than just those three lessons but that’s all I wrote. I might write about Africa later, but right now I need to finish school. So this all your getting out of me for today.
Found this on my laptop today!! This is so funny to me!
Sometimes I fell like things are is unfair my sister(she is four) gets to sleepover but not me I’m 12 years old I’m trusted with watching all 7 kids and taking care of baby but not go over to someone else house! I don’t understand one minuet it’s oh thank you are sooooo responsible then no you’re not allowed to do that! they sometimes treat me like I’m Caleb!!!!!!!! Why I that? I HAVE NO IDEA. Yeah I know some of my bff’s don’t act the way my ‘rents want them too but it’s not like I will not tell what’s going on in my life! I can tell them anything and the Skaggs are trusted and so are there kids know how am I d grandma and then the say sure yeah let’s let the girl we barley trust go with someone else! YES I UNDERSTAND THAT MY SISTER IS A LOT FOR MY GRANDMA BUT WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? Other than say home and do nothing ………..well that is not entirely true but what do I think we are going to do? Well I have no clue sure let her go have fun with the Skaggs so I can’t be there to chaperone her? But you let me watch her at home all I HAVE TO SAY IS REALLY? I am thankful for my privileges that I get but some this seems unfair………..they make seem like I’m going to slow the Skaggs down! That is not true at all will the make up their minds about me……I’m very confused I hope I’ll find the answer soon..
November 11 2017, Cade Newell, was born. I probably should have done this way earlier but I didn’t feel like it. I don’t really have a special message for you my little brother. I just hope you have a long eventful life that pleases the Lord. And if you have a short life then at least you’ll be in heaven. Unless your a brat and you end up in Hell. Okay, my New Special Message to is, “Don’t end up in Hell. It’s litt but not in a good way.”. I have another New Special Message for you and it’s probably one the most important thing in the world.:
Your mind is blown right now
It’s 17 days until Christmas and I’m still working on my wishlist. I really wanted to get a survival horror game. I’m thinking about getting ‘State of Decay’ or ‘Alien: Isolation’. I also want a BB Gun
To get you in the Christmas Spirit (Even Though this song has nothing to do with Christmas — OR DOES IT.)
THEORIST MODE ACTIVATED:
If you take the word ‘Official’ from ‘Social Club Misfits – Dive feat. Beam (Official Music Video)’ and put it side by side with the word ‘Feathers’, you can see they have something in common. Something very Strange. They both have EIGHT LETTERS in them! Eight from Stranger Things has a sister named ELEVEN. 11 + 8 = 19. There are 10 letters in ‘Demogorgan’. 19 – 10 = 9 . There’s 8 letters in ‘Stranger’ and 9 – 8 = ONE (Dats quick maths). ‘One’ and Kb’s song ‘I Am Not The One’ both have the number ‘One’ in common. In Kb’s song He tells us that Jesus is the One. We celebrate The One’s birthday on Christmas! That’s how ‘Social Club Misfits – Dive feat. Beam (Official Music Video)’ has everything to do with Christmas.
I’m going to post my Christmas List a little early.
Twice Upon a Time (Sequal to Half Upon a time)
Once Upon a Time (Last book of the Half Upon a Time series)
Avatar the last airbender: North and South (Books 1, 2 and 3)
Call of Duty: WWll
and I think that’s about it. I mean mostly writing supplies, some books and a video game. I think I forgot something else but I’ll remember it soon.
This is my tenth and finale Friday Blog™ for this season
My football season is almost over
Kbs new album dropped yesterday
This is my tenth Friday blog. When I’m on winter break I’ll stop making these and wait ’till next year to pick it back up. I think I’m going to make a spin off of my Friday Blog™ series. It’s gonna be called Thursday Blog or something like that. It’ll be my old blogs from 2016 all the way up to the first Friday Blog™. It could be kinda cool. It could be really boring tho.
I only have one more game left in my football season. Lets compare my predicted stat line I made early in the season to my actual stats (I’ll come back and update my stats when my last game is over).
0 Catches 0 Receiving Yards
0 Receiving Touchdowns
170 Rushing Yards
3 Rushing Touchdowns (two got called back cuz of block in the back)
3 Rushing 2-point conversions 0 Interceptions
My stats were terrible. I’m probably going to win MVP though
Kb released his new album. It’s pretty good.
Also, I am very thankful for God. He’s been spectacular to me and my family our entire lives. Giving us blessing, helping me grow as a Christian, being very patient with us. I could go on and on. One of the more really important things is If He didn’t give me breathe in my lungs then I wouldn’t be able to do the Friday Blog™. Then again, If I had no breathe in my lungs, I think Friday Blog™ Probably would be the least of my concerns.
Welp, its been a pretty good season on Friday Blog™. ‘Till next time
…. Its CamTheMan!
I’m just kidding. That’s one of the cringiest names I’ve ever heard.
Apollo [A Dc Comic Story]
Apollo sat in the back of a helicopter which was taking him outside the city of Gotham.”Once we drop you off you will need to start the mission. You report to me at the end of the week, got it?” General Woodburn asked Apollo.
Apollo nodded as the helicopter landed.”Now, you’re supposed to join the Justice League in order to gain Intel on them.”But I thought I was supposed to destroy them the moment I had the chance?” Apollo asked. The General shook his head, “The plans have changed. Now go and begin your mission,” He said.
Apollo hopped out of the helicopter and headed for the city.”Sir, shouldn’t you have told him about the thing?” A scientist sitting next to General Wood-burn asked.”No. No one but us should know about it,” Woodburn said closing the helicopter door as the began to take off.
I walked through the streets of Gotham, keeping a lookout for any Justice League member. I had trained for this moment my entire life and I couldn’t fail, I wouldn’t.
I then heard a scream come from an alley two blocks from me. I smirked. ‘Perfect,’ I thought as I ran towards the alley. I could see 5 big strong guys with crowbars. They were closing in on a boy who looked about 10 and what seems to be his little sister.
“You guys must be desperate. Going after little kids? I’d thought you could do better,” I said. The thugs turned around to face me.”Isn’t it a little early for Halloween kid? Scram or you get what they’re getting,” One of them said.
I scoffed.”Please, I bet I could take all 5 of you on,” I said. The thugs smirked and started towards me. I then slowly let out my chain that had three sharp knifes at the end. That’s when the thugs stopped and looked at the weapon.”What’s the matter? Don’t tell me you want to run away now?” I taunted. Then two of them ran towards me. I easily dodged their attacks and swung my chain around one leg and swung him against the other guy causing them to hit the wall and pass out. I had saved 2 kids from danger and had come 1 step closer to being a hero.
I used Nameberry for my report.
Pretty much all my brothers name’s have good meaning to them. For example, The name “Christopher” Means Christ follower. The Name “Caleb” means devoted to God. “Canon” is the name a group of books in the Bible. “Cade” means Bishop (according to my mom). “Camiryn” (my name) means bent nose. Also, that’s how you spell it for females. So according to my name I am a girl with a bent nose. Yay. How awesome.
The name Camiryn originated from Scotland. Because the Scottish people thought,”Let’s make a name that means bent nose! Because that definitely won’t make the person who has that name self conscious about their nose every time they hear their name!”
After I was born my parents didn’t know what to name me for two weeks. They finally settled for the name “Camiryn”. You might be wondering,”Why did they spell it like that? Isn’t that how you spell it for a girl? Why didn’t they spell it like C A M E R O N? Isn’t that the way you spell it for a boy?”. Well reader fellow, it’s not that simple. Oh wait It is that simple! Just spell it the right way! How in the world did you up C A M I R Y N? That’s not even close to how you’re supposed to spell it for a boy. That’s how you spell it for a girl! I’m not a girl! You already chose a name with a terrible meaning and then on top of that you spelled it the girl way. Did I look like a bent nose girl as a baby? Is that why you named me Camiryn? Or is it because you don’t know how to spell? It’s probably because they didn’t know how to spell. They did attend school in Laurel Mississippi after all.
So, my name might not bring honor to me and my children and my children’s children, but that’s okay. It doesn’t matter because I’m not like my name. You now the saying,”There’s no “me” in “name”.”.

I didn’t put this in my report but I wanted to put this here.
Now as you guys may know a awesome game came out last month. Destiny 2! I completed the game in three days cause of all my free time and lack of friends. Anyways this game is awesome!
Like this is the cover of the game but I’m telling you this is the best first person shooter game ever! You get these crazy new outfits and guns and even a new super charge! Tbh I was never a fan of shooting games but ever since Destiny came out I’ve been getting into new shooting games. I’m going to try and find some good ones. I hear Call of Duty is a good one.
