So I haven't exactly been keeping the weekly journal up to date. To compensate, I agreed to take over the main page as part of my writing assignments and talk about different events here. This past weekend I did two performances of Guys and Dolls Jr. at the High School here. It was super fun and there is more details on that on the main page. This past Monday though was also exciting because I finally got braces! I spent about an hour in the chair with my mouth wide open while they cemented brackets and strung wires through those. They hurt a little but I think I just need some time to get used to it!
Well back to school I guess! This week we started 'school', Dad, Ri and I went through some things we thought were important to learn and made up a kinda, sorta schedule. This is what it looked like:

Math - 45 min - IXL practice - Geometry
Writing - 30 min - Blog Updates/Treasure Island Vocab
History - 30 min - Research on River Valley Civilizations
Science - 30 min - Help Ri with High Speed Videos
Exercise - 20 min - Treadmill/Dance Practice
Language - 20 min - Pronunicator
Music - 15 min - Guitar/Ukulele Practice
We also helped mom with her raised garden bed, so she can start planting as soon as possible. Tuesday Ri and I started Robotics with the 4H program. On the weekend, Dad, Ri and I went with the trails association up Grandfather mountain. We hiked for about 3 hours covering a total distance of 3 miles.
It has been one long week. It's hard to think that just ten days ago I was on my way home to New Jersey from California, a lot has changed since then. Ri and I arrived in the cabin two days after Mom and Dad, we stopped to visit some cousins for a couple of days on the way to the cabin, and they went ahead. I immediately loved it here. It's so quiet and peaceful with the occasional bark from Gracie (the dog who lives down the street.) Ri, Will and I went to go visit her and her owners Keith and Angela. FYI they take care of baby deer and it was a chaotic operation, but super fun! The whole week all of us were running errands (ok so maybe it was just Mom and Dad) but we had to get the necessities down. I guess we're more settled now and gradually getting into our homeschool schedule, though we still sleep late hopefully we're(I) are getting better!
Hey! I was born in Mumbai, India. I am 13 years old and I am just finishing eighth grade. I love singing and acting, especially in musicals. And I guess I kind of created this website!
