The weather man makes predictions and my dad says the prophets in the bible made prophecies. Either way you want to look at it, these are people who tell you what’s going to happen before it happens. I don’t know much about the weather and I don’t know a lot about prophesy in the bible either but there are a few things that are going to happen this year and I have no doubt about it! Take my word for it.
I think the new year will be better than last year. I know for a fact I will get better grades than last year. I like my teachers and my school, this year, a lot more than my school last year. All that stuff matters. If you like a place you will do your best to excel in that place. That’s the way I feel about school. When teachers get on your nerves and nobody is really trying to help you, you start not caring yourself. When people around you care and they want to see you do better, then you all of sudden start wanting to do better. So, I have no doubt my grades are going to continue to get better and better this year.
My daddy says the Saints are going to win the Superbowl this year. This is the first time I agree with him. One of my predictions is that this is Drew Brees’ year. Please don’t tell my dad I said this. He knows I am a Seattle Seahawks fan and if he knew I was pulling for the Saints he would mess with me all day. I don’t hate the Saints at all though. They are a good team. I just prefer the Seahawks. However, this year I just feel like the Saints will win.
The NBA Finals are on the way. Since the East has no good times besides the Celtics, I believe the Celtics will be in The Finals. If KD and Draymond Green don’t stop fighting the Lakers or the Rockets might go to the Finals. I think the Lakers are going to the Finals because they have Lebron James on their team. Anytime you have Lebron on your team you instantly have a shot to win it all. Plus, Lebron makes sure his team is fighting all the time. The Warriors need to sort out their problems and they’d better get it together. I predict the Lakers and the Celtics will be in the NBA Finals.
My birthday is June 29th. I’m predicting in advance. I will get new shoes or a Nintendo Switch. My favorite shoes are LeBron’s and Kryie. Every year I have my birthday out of town because it’s in the Summer. This year I think I am going to have my birthday in New Orleans. If not, then I will have it in Dallas. I don’t like cake or cupcakes. So I might get a cookie cake. I know God is looking over me so I can go on and predict that I will be 13 years old this year.
Mardi Gras is a big thing in New Orleans. I have not been going for the past 2 years because it is always cold. I don’t care who is in the parade. I’m not standing at a parade in 30 degree weather. I predict this year it is going to be better for Mardi Gras because the Saints are winning. New Orleans is always a better city when the Saints are winning. Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara might be there. I think I will get the good stuff this year.
2018 was a good year but I predict 2019 will be an even better year for everybody I know. It starts with you believing it. Then, all you have to do is start making it come true. I wish you guys a Happy New year!
