Friends

Do you and your friends have many things in common? Or are you both super different but are still friends? Well Emma and I have many things in common. We both like the same foods, we both go to the same tennis academy (and love tennis!), and we feel the same way about a lot of things.

 

The first reason Emma and I have many things in common is, we both like the same foods. One food in particular we both like is slushies. One example is when Emma and I made our very own slushie.  “I’ll get the ice and salt,” I told Emma, “And I’ll get the juice,” Emma said back. First we put the ice in a ziploc bag. Next we sprinkled salt on top. Then we added juice (in our case mango nectar). Finally we mixed and massaged the ingredients together until it looked and felt like a slushie. “ Yum!” we both said when we took a bite. It took a bit for the ice, salt, and juice to combine, but in the end it was worth it. The slushie we made was much healthier, and I thought it tasted much better than the one you get at the movies.

 

The second reason Emma and I have many things in common is we both go to the same tennis academy (and love tennis!). The tennis academy is called Tennis Innovators Academy. But Emma is in yellow ball and I’m in green ball, which is sad because then we can’t be in the same group. Another thing about the tennis academy that we both have in common is we both don’t like going there. But we will both still love tennis no matter what!

 

The last reason Emma and I have many things in common is we feel the same way about a lot of things. One example is when we were at Mei’s going away party. I arrived third. When I rang the doorbell,  I heard stomping footsteps and screaming. First I was a little bit scared, because I was not sure what was happening. When Nathalie opened the door I came in and started to have fun. It was not until Emma arrived that I realized why everyone was screaming. When Emma rang the doorbell everyone screamed, “ Yay!” or “ Get the door quickly it’s Emma!” While we were stampeding to the front door, all the grown-ups were laughing like crazy in the corner. For every person since Emma arrived I just stayed at the table with Emma wondering why everyone had to scream and stomp like that.

 

Emma and I have many things in common. We both like the same foods, we both go to the same tennis academy (and love tennis!), and we both feel the same way about a lot of things. Emma and I will always be great friends.

 

My Aunt

My aunt and me are like PB&J. She’s the peanut butter and I’m the jelly. When we’re together we’re like matching puzzle pieces. My aunt is a very meaningful person in my life because not everyone is nice like her, she brightens dark situations, and she is super generous .  

 

The first reason my aunt is a very meaningful person in my life is, not everyone is nice like her. An example was when I was at the Palisades Mall with my aunt on a shopping spree. “Don’t forget to tell me when you want to eat,” my aunt reminded me. “ Okay,” I responded. I was not even close to hungry. I was having so much fun, and when I’m having this much fun I feel like I could live forever without food.  After a hour of zooming in and out of shops, I lost some stamina, and decided I couldn’t live forever without food. After lunch and ice cream. We had a whole load of bags. On the way back to my house I knew that not everyone is nice like her.

 

The second reason my aunt is a very meaningful person in my life is she brightens dark situations. For example one day I was playing a math board game called PrimeClimb with my aunt and my 6 year old brother, Tre. Tre was kicking and screaming because I had bumped him down, obviously because I am better at math than him. “ Tre, calm down,” my aunt said gently. Then she showed him how he could bump her back to the beginning. She’s like the sun during dark situations.

 

The last reason my aunt is a very meaningful person in my life is, she is super generous. An example is, she’s super generous to buy Marshall, Tre and me so many clothes. She’s super generous to buy fancy bread and pastries from the city for my family. She’s super generous to never come empty handed. Another example of my aunt being generous is when it was my first year selling Girl Scout cookies. She emailed her co-workers asking them if they wanted to buy any. I had never sold Girl Scout cookies before, but with my aunt’s help I sold 99 boxes.

 

My aunt is a very meaningful person in my life because not everyone is nice like her, she brightens dark situations, and she is super generous. I know that she will always be a special and meaningful person to me.
