The Friday of Onions

       So I have an assignment in class and I have to write about last Friday, which is when our entire team picked onions, had an assembly, and then watched random videos for the rest of the day. So basically a lazy day. I already went over the main parts, so let me go into the details.
       The first thing we did was go to a farm-type thing and pick onions. We each had to have a partner so one person can pick the onions and the other can hold the bucket. I partnered up with my good friend Sareena. So we started out really badly. We only had a few tiny onions, whereas our other friends Shreya and Renee had huge ones. Sareena (who also has a blog called Queen Rene so go look at hers) and I went further down the onion patch or hill or whatever they're called until we found more. We proceeded to fill our bucket before pretty much everyone else and then receive high praise. Sareena and I were then told to go pick more, which was hard because there were about 40-50 other pairs of students and it wasn't a very big patch or hill or whatever. I stumbled upon a stray onion that hadn't grown much. It seemed to give us good luck because, after that, we found enough onions to feed a small village. I later took that same onion home and it is currently awaiting to be eaten.
        After that we had an assembly where we watched a video about not doing drugs and being a good person. It was funny in some parts, but only because movie clips played throughout the entire video. Most of it was just sad though. A lot of teenage death to things like cancer and flying over railroad tracks. There was also a girl who used to be a model or something but her face was deformed after she checked a text from her mother while on the road. Sad.
        After all of that, school was finally over. My friend's mom drove me home. My friend and her boyfriend were also in the car too, and we decided to get doughnuts at this place that basically screams fall this time of year. I went home and my brother immediately asked for a piece, although he's two so it was more like reaching for it while screaming MINE. 
        That is all I have to say about that day. I could put in links and pictures to get extra credit, but I don't know how to put in pictures and I have no links to put in. Just mentioning this to make sure my teachers didn't think I was just lazy. Also I got a view from France, which I think is pretty cool. Hopefully that will impress my teachers. Anyways, goodbye.

  1. All the food that is grown at the Regional Food Bank Farm goes to people who don't have enough food. I'm sorry to hear that you took an onion home with you. We had explained about this during class.

    1. I wouldn't have been much help. It was very small and some of the layers had been peeled off. It was barely even fully grown, and was the kind of onion that a food bank would probably have thrown out. I wouldn't take one home if it could be preserved long enough to give it to someone who needed it.
