A TIME WITH MY FRIENDS OR CLASS MATES :
“Hurray” I shouted in my head as Miss Clark called out my group. I just had been put in the same group as my friends. We had been put into groups of 5 or 6 for the Amazing Race. The Amazing Race was a treat from our teachers to say Thank You for your hard effort this year. I quickly put on my P.E shirt with excitement just like the excitement I had when I see my cousins from overseas.
My friends and I make our way together into the street ready for the challenges ahead. Butterflies in my tummy made me feel anxious about what we were going to do. But I knew that working with my friends would be easier, faster and exciting! We got handed a brown coloured paper with all the stations of activities we were about to face. Each station has a limited time. We all get 10 minutes on 4 stations.
First off was the pea pipes. This game is played with straws, peas and of course our breath. We have to suck the pea on the straw just like sucking on a soft drink and quickly run to the other side and drop it in the white plastic bowl carefully. “ 3 2 1 go !” Miss Hockly shouts with joy. Quinlan was first to take on this Pea pipes challenge for our group. She walks as fast as she can to the white plastic bowl. But when she made it halfway our bowl tips over by the harsh breeze of air. I was frustrated. The look on my face was as ferocious as a lion. I couldn't stand losing, we just could not lose. I try and keep my frustration inside of me. But thanks to my friends the just keep on encouraging Quinlan . That's when I realised that something better than winning is having your friends by your side.
We continue on with the complex challenge as a group and this time I looked at the challenge differently. I looked at it as a way to enjoy myself and bonding time with my friends. As we knew it time flew by and the challenge was over. We had won the challenge !! We jump up and down like a kangaroo pouncing on the spot.
We walked over to our next station knowing that if we have fun and work as a group it would make things easier and less complicated. “Uh oh this looks disgusting” I exclaimed to Khaia. We walked into the area that was located for the Fear Factor station.This couldn't be easy. My group of friends and I see 4 big plastic bowls filled with all sorts of food. We hoped and prayed that we didn't have to eat it. We has a closer look inside and I noticed spaghetti. It gave me the thoughts of gross slimy worms. Goosebumps started to appear on my hands. I could not see what was hiding under the layer of spaghetti but it quickly gave me memories of vomit. I wasn't able to look no more.
I sat down with a disgusted face and knew that I had my friends to go through this with me so everything was fine.
