All About Me.

Hello! My name is Jayden and this is my first year at Riverside. I am a soccer and adventure lover, adrenalin seeker and smiley person 🙂 I enjoy spending time with people who make me and keep me always smiling and 100% happy.

My favourite quote is Oh the Places You’ll Go, by Dr. Seuss. This book was a book my family read to me as a kid. To me it means do what you want to do, you WILL make it great and you can achieve all your dreams.

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself 
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
You’ll look up and down streets. Look ’em over with care.
About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.”
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, 
you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.
And you may not find any
you’ll want to go down.
In that case, of course,
you’ll head straight out of town.
It’s opener there
in the wide open air.
Out there things can happen
and frequently do
to people as brainy
and footsy as you.
And then things start to happen,
don’t worry. Don’t stew.
Just go right along.
You’ll start happening too.
You’ll be on y our way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.
You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes, you won’t.
I’m sorry to say so
but, sadly, it’s true
that Bang-ups
and Hang-ups                                       
can happen to you.
You can get all hung up
in a prickle-ly perch.
And your gang will fly on.
You’ll be left in a Lurch.
You’ll come down from the Lurch
with an unpleasant bump.
And the chances are, then,
that you’ll be in a Slump.
And when you’re in a Slump,
you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself
is not easily done.
You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?
And IF you go in, should you turn left or right…
or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite?
Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
Simple it’s not, I’m afraid you will find,
for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.
You can get so confused
that you’ll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place…
…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or the waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for the wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.
That’s not for you!
Somehow you’ll escape
all that waiting and staying
You’ll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.
With banner flip-flapping,
once more you’ll ride high!
Ready for anything under the sky.
Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!
Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
Fame! You’ll be as famous as famous can be,
with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.
Except when they don’t
Because, sometimes they won’t.
I’m afraid that some times
you’ll play lonely games too.    
Games you can’t win
’cause you’ll play against you.
All Alone!
Whether you like it or not,
Alone will be something
you’ll be quite a lot.
And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance
you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.
But on you will go
though the weather be foul.
On you will go
though your enemies prowl.
On you will go
though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many
a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore
and your sneakers may leak.
On and on you will hike,
And I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.
You’ll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up 
with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s 
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never foget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
You’re off the Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!”

My Favourite video on YouTube is definately this spoken word made me cry when I first listened to it. I believe everyone can relate in someway to this as, everyone has been bullied, knows someone that has or has seen it happen. Here is the link to watch it: To This Day Project – Shane Koyczan – YouTube .

I am all about being me and I dont care what others think of me as I know I am ok with myself  and expressing myself however I please! My friends and family have always known me to be very outgoing. I dress funky around 3 times a school year my close friends called it “pulling a Jayden” as not many people come to school or go out in public in all neon green outfits or all pink for the Terry Fox run to promote Breast Cancer, but I do. “Being a FruitLoop in a bowl of Cheerios” is definitely a quote and photo that I can relate and say that its one of my favourites as, I am for sure a FruitLoop!


I am a huge fan of Disney anything. I will never be to old for Disney, it will always be in my heart. Disney taught are numerous life lessons and provided me with lots of giggles and songs I still love to this day.

Thanks for reading all about me!

Investigation of Water Absorption- SSEP1- Mission8

A grade 6 science class in Santa Ana, California created a experiment that was selected for flight in 2015. There idea was to see if microgravity would interfere with the water absorption of Hyaluronic Acid. There is not a lot of water storage or resources in the International Space Station and it is hard to maintain good moister in the astronauts skin, as it is hard to maintain good water levels in their bodies. The Hyaluronic Acid is found all over our bodies from or eyes to joints, and to help moisturize our skin as well as sooth burns and injuries. This Acid is also found in spray we use to send medicine into our bodies by spraying into our nose. This grade 6 class found studies that showed that human flesh gets very dehydrated and irritated to the point it starts to itch. With the use of Hyaluronic Acid they believe that the astronauts would have a more comfortable trip. They researched the water absorbency and the make up of Hyaluronic Acid on earth and microgravity.

I had sent an email to Lizette Cabrera, who was a leader in my researched experiment, unfortunately she did not reply. I had asked about her experience, how she found background information and why they chose that. If she ever replies I will send it to you!

This was a fantastic idea/ experiment to try out. If i had the authority to choose a experiment to travel to space I would have loved to see this one, I suffer from excema and if I were a astronaut and up there it would go insane if it was dry, so if they could some how try to make my trip most enjoyable I would wish that. To keep my skin hydrated and heal any accidents that may occur. A Experimental group is almost self explanatory they “Experiment” the experiment and try it out/ do it. The Control group is the brain/ control center, they come up with the experiment.
