Under the Sun by Sydney

Once upon a time…………………….

There was a hunchback named Tyler, who was shunned due to his appearance, until, one day, he saw a young woman named Ginger, who had a beautiful smile. They decided to fly to Milan and spend the summer there, basking in the sunlight and ocean waves. They also agreed to get married in Frankfort, Germany. They adopted quintuplets from France and also adopted a litter of 115 dalmatians. They lived in a huge mansion in Barcelona, Spain. They went skydiving in Japan and dived for pearls too. They hiked to the top of Mount Everest, where they held a wine tasting party. They also learned how to operate a twin engine jet ski. They ziplined across the Grand Canyon and bungee jumped into a dormant volcano. They did a lot of wild and crazy things together. They decided to work together in a bakery and created the world’s biggest red velvet cake. It was the size of a mountain. They invited everyone in Eastern Europe to eat the cake. Tyler and Ginger went white water rafting down the Colorado River in June for 2 weeks in a pair of small boats.

Wendy’s

(Restaurant Review)

By Chris M

I enjoy going to Wendy’s. It’s a nice, quick & welcoming fast-food place that lives by its number 1 rule: Every Hamburger must be Fresh & never Frozen. It all started with an idea by founder Dave Thomas, who believed that Fresh quality is key to a Hamburger’s success, not freezing it for another day like McDonald’s.

I enjoy going to the Wendy’s location near my neighborhood. I’ve gone there so many times with either my Mom or Dad that their servers are starting to recognize me. Isn’t that special.

Overall, I like Wendy’s nice & welcoming environment where I can sit down and enjoy my food, even if there are a lot customers or if there’s music I don’t enjoy hearing.

Hope you would enjoy it too.

What Are You Thankful For?

“I am thankful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.”
– Henry David Thoreau

Thanksgiving is a time where we share a meal together and celebrate our families, friends and the people we care about. In honor of Thanksgiving, we asked SEEDs participants to reflect on their lives and share their thoughts on what they are thankful for. 

MATTHEW
I’m pretty much thankful for the life I even have to begin with, having the family I was born in, and the world that I live in. Sure with all its ups, there’s also downs, but that’s just a part of everything. It’s what everyone goes through. Everyone is different, so not everything will be the same for them. Maybe they won’t even be born in the same reality. Over time, people will realize that there’s always gonna be some hardships they have to go through, but sometimes the point is to actually go through them and maybe come out somewhere on top. It’s all part of learning and knowing what to do when the time comes. We all just need to be thankful about what we have while we have them.

ANNA
I am thankful for my counselor and psychiatrist because they have in their own ways helped me feel better and lessen my OCD thoughts. My counselor has talked with me about my OCD and how I can stop it from affecting me. My psychiatrist has prescribed medicine that has lowered my compulsive OCD thoughts.

I am thankful for the internet because with its access I can find things I never knew about that I will enjoy. The internet can answer questions I have without paying money for a book that will answer my question or going to the library and looking for a book they may not have that could answer a lot of questions I have.

JESSE
I am thankful for my friends & family because without them life would be really boring.

RYAN D.
I am thankful for my family and my girlfriend and my friends.

BRIAN T.
I am thankful for Hot Wheels and I really like them because they are my favorite cars.

BRIANNA
I’m thankful for my family because they’re sweet, helpful and very kind! I’m thankful for SEEDs because it is a really fun place to learn, and also the instructors are really friendly and supportive!

JAKE
I am thankful for Seeds because I have friends.

Halloween Poem

Halloween is a black spider creeping across the blood-stained wall. Halloween is a gnarled tree tapping on the window. Halloween is a bright orange pumpkin shining in the pitch-black night. Halloween is the sound of children in various costumes going door- to- door. Halloween is witches on broomsticks flying through the air. Halloween is a gaggle of monsters on the prowl. Halloween is a haunted house in the middle of nowhere. Halloween is candy being devoured greedily. Halloween is a black cat bounding down the street. Halloween is a ghost popping up in  random spots and saying Boooooooooooooo.

Aloha Day at Seeds for Autism

SEEDs for Autism is happy to provide organized recreational activities to empower those on the autism spectrum to explore their creativity, share new experiences, connect with others and GROW! At ALOHA DAYS, friends and family came together as a community to celebrate summer, learn about Hawaiian culture and have FUN! We asked some of our participants to share their experiences from this joyful and educational event.

CHRIS M
I went to Aloha Days at SEEDS with my parents. I spent my morning time playing “Topple” with Jeffery. I enjoyed playing, even though I was new to the game. Then my Mom convinced me to take part in one of the hula dances. I did try out the dance moves to make her proud. Then we got ready for Aloha Day lunch, which included teriyaki chicken, steamed rice, and fruit donuts. Overall, I had a nice time.

SONJA
Saturday the 11th of August I went to an event at Seeds for Autism called Aloha Days where we got to learn about the Hawaiian culture and dance the hula. My favorite part was doing the hula dancing. I loved how each dance tells a story about life and love. I got to eat a delicious pineapple donut and rice topped with chicken. I enjoyed myself a lot being able to hang out with friends and learn new things I didn’t know. I can’t wait for the next event coming soon!

DANIEL CH
I had fun at Aloha Day. I played volleyball with a Beach ball. I learned how to dance the Hula. My mom came and she ate Hawaiian food. I wore a Hawaiian shirt and played games. I made a sand castle and saw my friends at Seeds.

BRIAN
What I did at Aloha Days is relax and eat food and listen to music and play games.
