I'm sitting in math class as I write this blog- yes, on real paper! c: We just took a test, and after I finished (because I always finishe early) my mind began wandering to the Rowader Blog (please don't question my train of thought...). I thought 'maybe I should write something for it soon'. And so, knowing me, I decided that if I didn't write something now, while I was thinking about it, I would completely forget about it later and the write a meager update of scrambled thoughts and leave you confused (if I'm not doing so already).
As I sat here, I didn't really think of anything of consequence for me to write about, since a middle schooler's life to themselves is-- well, boring. Really really boring. But I suppose I could make it seem interesting if I act like it is. :>
We did an interesting (see, it's working already!) lab in science today about genetic mutations, and how they affect people, bla bla. My group ended up with the 'no fingers' mutation. Oh, how fun. Others had 'no peripheral vision', which was unfair, or 'arms fused together'. There was even a 'no arms' group. I felt a bit sorry for them. Each group (ours had the letter 'B') had to get 9 peanuts off the ground and into a cup. Then in the next round, we had to open the peanuts and eath 3 peanuts each. :< I don't like peanuts much, and it didn't help that all of the pieces were smashed to timy bits from when we tried to open the shells (we crushed them with our taped fists). But somehow, we finished first. Yes, even before the 'no peripheral vision' people. They just didn't seem too delighted by the nasty-tasting peanuts. We had such an easier time of the activity than the 'no arms' group, who smashed their peanuts with their foreheads.
Today was Katie's, or as I call her, Nee-chan's birthday. Wow, 20. I feel like such a small child! All of my family is growing so big! I can remember when we were all little and 'played'. :] Yeah, it's not called playing. We're too big for that now. She called and I sang Happy Birthday to her, which I think she enjoyed. She comes back from England on Sunday, and I know I'm really excited to see her, as I'm sure my parents are too.
Lots of Love,
