Happy New Year to everybody! Hope your year has been great! Speaking of which, why don’t we reflect on our year? I know mine was great (even though I forgot some stuff)!
The biggest thing I remember is our Alaska trip. That was really fun, and cold, but mostly fun. Next year/this coming year, hopefully we will make better memories of Seattle 🙂 . We learned a lot about Alaska’s history and culture, and about sled dogs, and glaciers, and learned just plain out a LOT.
I also remember my first day of 7th grade. It was…interesting. We had to carry our stuff around for a few days in a backpack, because they didn’t have our lockers for us yet. That was the only really bad thing on the first few days. The rest of the year (so far) has been stressful, fun and great!
There was a lot of craziness in October and November with the play in Kenosha, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” I had to go up there almost every single day of the week! But the shows and performances were worth it. I performed as Scout in two day performances, and even though I missed a few lines (and school that day 🙁 ), it went really well.
We also made steampunk style a big part of my world. My Halloween costume was a steampunk girl, and we changed my room into a steamounk den (sort of). We also decorated our tiny tree as a Doctor Who-Steampunk tree this year.
This coming year will be crazy at the beginning with school. We have about a zillion tests, and we have Battle of the Books (a reading competition), and Destination Imagination (http://www.destinationimagination.org/).
We are going to be busy, but I hope your new year gets off to a great start!
