So as you all know, Saturday was Independence Day, better known as the 4th of July. For the first time in my memory, my family and I went to Boston to watch the fireworks. The last time I had gone to see fireworks was a distant memory (I was about five) so I was looking forward to a fireworks experience I could remember properly.
We left the house at 8, which I thought rather unnecessary at the time seeing as the fireworks didn’t start until 10:30. We set off for Alewife, with a quick detour to pick up some family friends, then parked our minivan on the top floor. The other four levels were jam-packed with cars, and we felt rather lucky to have secured a spot. After entering the building and squeezing through the gates, we boarded the T and hunkered down, ready for what my mom had predicted to be a forty-minute ride. Needless to say, us children were feeling more than a bit pessimistic at this point, as we had not had the foresight to bring any form of entertainment. Fortunately my mom’s dark prediction went the way of most of the recent weather forecasts and we were off the T after a considerably shorter time, of about 20 minutes.

For the first time in a long while. 😛 Seven new drawings, by me! Just go to the albums, then go to the second page and click on the album with the drawing of a girl wearing pink on it. After that, click on the album with the same girl, and you’ll see all my drawings! The new ones will be near the top, starting with the JGMS yearbook cover as the earliest one. Take a look please!
Oh, and BTW, I’m thirteen. *unnecessary information* Just in case you think I’m older, ’cause my drawings are so good. 😀 Just kidding!
See you later,
I was on the phone the other day with my best friend Natasha, talking about random things, like how my room just recently got a makeover, how she just went to New York and went tubing, and how we both couldn’t wait to go back-to-school shopping. Then she said something that made my jaw drop. 繼續閱讀 'Summer Essay #2: Summer’s Deception'»
Hi there! This is my first post (or one of my first posts, don’t remember which) on my family website! As you can probably tell, today’s topic is “Why [the Heck!] Does it Keep on Raining?!?"
Yup, it’s been raining for like a whole MONTH here where we live. Yeah, okay, it’s nice and sunny in the morning and afternoon (excluding today, though, it’s been all wet and disgusting ever since I got up), but then BOOM it starts thundering and the lightning is like A LIGHT SHOW FOR PETE’S SAKE. 繼續閱讀 'Summer Essay #1: Why Does it Keep on Raining?!?'»
Ooh, I can’t wait to tell my friends back in America that I actually touched CORAL and saw TWO starfish during summer vacation! It all happened when we went to Mataking Island, which is part of Malaysia.
We woke up at 5:00 to get ready for the 45-minute boat ride from Semporna to the island. When we got to the dock, we saw so many exotic fish under it!
