Day 5 - Week 2 (Activity 1 + Activity 2): Ve Day, Making a Fashion Statement

Of course I would invite my friends to party. I'll play games, play rugby, soccer and other sports. I would also invite all my family and party all the way to the next day, or even week, or year just kidding. We would have lots and lots of fun.

I would prefer present day kinda clothing because its more comfy and you don't need to put on a lot of stuff or clothes to make you look really "fancy". If I wore olden day clothes, I would've gotten a sore arm or something would've been sore right, wearing all those clothes. I think 65 years from now, people would've changed styles but they will have similar styles and cosiness. I also think future clothes will go back to being really fancy.

2. Italy Invades Greece:
On the 28th of October, 1940, Italy Invades Greece. It lasted for 1 year 1940 - 23rd of April 1941. I couldn't find if they conquered Greece but I think they failed to conquer Greece.

I chose Second Lieutenant Moana-nui-a-Kiwa Ngarimu, 28th (Maori) Battalion, 2 NZEF. Moana-nui-a-Kiwa Ngarimu is the first Maori to get an VC. He took part in the assault at Tebaga Gap, Tunisia, in March 1943. The battalion’s objective was a strategically important hill known as Point 209. The first task was to take high ground below the summit. Ngārimu led his platoon up one of these lower hills on 26 March, personally knocking out several machine-gun posts.

Day 3 - Week 2 (Activity 1 + Activity 2): Dealing with Stress, Offering a Helping Hand

For me It's easy for me to deal with stress. I just basically sleep and forget about the next day or forget about it the next time I wake up. Sometimes I eat just to fill your stomach and make you feel better and make you think about other things and think positively.

It must've been hard for people to feed their families if their crops were getting damaged. Here are somethings I would've done to help provide my family with food and warmth. I would've sold the bits of area that the crops didn't grow in and use some money to buy seeds to make food and and use the other money to buy food for now.

Day 2 - Week 2 (Activity 1 + Activity 2): Popular Culture - The Silent Movie, Art Deco

If I was born in the 1900's I would like to watch it because it looks cool and funny. I would like to watch it now because I would get entertained by watching a funny, cool black and white, silent movie. I would watch this with my family because It would be more fun to talk about what happened. Image result for the gold rush
 I think the painting is 4 star, It's a good painting and it's not bad either. I think that kind of painting is not the kind of painting I would like because its not exciting and funny, It looks kinda boring. I think the painting is good but I don't like paintings like those.

Day 1 - Week 2 (Activity 1 + Activity 2) :St Joseph's Cathedral, Right to Vote

I chose the St Patrick's Cathedral which is the oldest Cathedral built in New Zealand, 1841. St Patrick Cathedral is located in Auckland, 43 Wyndham street, 1010. I could not find how long it took to build this Cathedral but I think it took very long.
It is fair to let women vote because I don't see why men should be standing on top. Everyone is equal. Women should've been allowed to vote ages ago. New Zealand being the first country to let women vote is pretty amazing to see women stand up for themselves and make what is wrong, right.Image result for when did new zealand let women vote

Day 4 - Week 1 (Activity 2): Playing Games

I chose Poi Rakau. Poi Rakau looks fun and easy to play but eventually it gets harder. You have 9 or 8 people playing with you, you have 9 or 8 sticks as well and you stand in the circle with the sticks upright. When the ref calls Maui, you have to run to the left side and try to catch the stick as fast as you can without letting it drop. You can't dig the sticks into the ground and you have to leave the stick upright so it doesn't drop as fast. If everyone gets their stick, you have to take one step back to make it harder. It keeps getting harder until their is one person left or the ref ends it and finishes the game of. Image result for Poi Rakau game
