The Sacred Hearts School 'Ohana has been consistently making excellent progress in the garden project. Currently, the plants have been infested by aphids, white fly, and mealy bugs. Mr. Mason created a solution that consisted of Dr. Bronner's soap, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and water. Today, Mr. Mason, Erin, and I wiped the solution on the back of the kalo leaf. Hopefully, our school ohana will figure out ways to improve the vitality of our garden.
The most nerve-wrecking encounter was about to occur. I remember feeling butterflies flying up and down my stomach. Once I opened the door to the room, I began to chant the Oli Aloha. I remember answering the psychological questions with my trembling voice. This experience was the May Day Interviews, which would determine your position of the 2014 May Day Royal Court. Finally it was over, and my nervousness was relieved
Singing "Where in the World are the Whales" in the Maui Theater for Whale Tales was a once in a lifetime experience. After many practices with Steve Grimes, the writer of the song, we finally performed it in front of a crowd who were passionate about whales. As I walked onto the stage, I did not feel nervous but comfortable. I looked out into the sea of people, who were smiling and seemed like they were enjoying the program. After our grand finale version of the song, many people complimented our singing. I remember practicing the song for the first time with Steve back in August 2013. Half a year later at this convention was probably the last time we would ever sing this song again. Time flies by so fast.
