Transforming Bellarine: The Editorial 2018 - Year 9

As we near the end of term, Year 9 students taking part in ‘The Editorial’ elective are busy working on either a podcast or vlog (video blog) to publish on their blog – ‘Transforming Bellarine’. You can access the blog – as long as you have a Christian College Geelong login – through the following link:

Below is a past piece by Christian Jeantou, when he was asked to find and write about an inspirational quote.

“Everything Happens For A Reason”

When you think about this quote, it is actually true; everything does happen for a reason. And, sometimes, when you have said or done something nice for somebody you can then see the reason.

The quote is inspirational to me because it is true. It is also inspirational because I hope when something bad happens, there is some better reason for it.

The quote came from Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn Monroe said, “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

When I found out that Marilyn Monroe created that quote I did not expect it to be her because she seems more like a person who sings to people - but I did not really think before I found out that she created the quote.

Yes, there have been times when something has happened for a reason and one of them was when my dad wanted me to try to find one of his working tools. He did not tell me why first, but then later on it made sense why.
