WOW, I haven’t written in a while. First of all, Happy New Year!!! I’m currently on CNY break but I’m going back to school on Monday :(. On the plus side, we’re having MS spirit week! Here’s the schedule: Monday=Pajama Day, Tuesday=Dress like a teacher day, Wednesday=House day, Thursday=Celebrity or famous character day, Friday=Twins day. House day is basically dressing to support our school house. There’s Thresher (WAHOO!), Tiger, Mako, and Hammerhead. Each house is a different type of shark, since we’re the sharks (our mascot).
This break has been awesome. We went camping on Cijin Island (off the West coast of Taiwan) and it was SUPER fun, but my mom and I slept in the car and the twin mattress we stuck in there was not big enough. In the morning, when we were going home, though, we stopped by IKEA and now we have two twin mattresses that fit perfectly in the back (and they fold up for storage!). Lucy and Dad slept in the tent. Anyway, it was really fun.
I’ve been writing a fanfiction about one of my favorite book series, Keeper of the Lost Cities. It’s called Mind Tricks. It’s the first one I’ve attempted that’s this long, but I’ve gotten more of it done than I expected. I’ve written one other fanfiction, also about KOTLC, called Swan Song. It’s really dark, though. It’s about a murder, sooo… I don’t know. I worked on Mind Tricks a lot this break and I think it’s finally shaping into something that will actually have an end haha. I really like working on it though.
Dad’s going to the US to interview people to go to Tanzania with him this summer. He should be back on Valentine’s Day as long as nothing happens. Whenever he goes to the US my family and I order things on Amazon because shipping to Taiwan is very expensive. We’ll send it to our grandparents’ house and then my dad will bring it home for us.
The Taiwan government stopped school for two weeks because of the corona virus. My school is going to be online for this week. We just found out and I’m really sad because I was really excited for school to start again. For character day I was going to be Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games series, which I just finished reading. I’m still disappointed, though. There’s not much I can do about it anyway.
To end this post on a happier note, I’m sitting here watching my mom play a video game called Stardew Valley. It’s really fun. It’s a game where you are a farmer in a small town called Stardew Valley. You can build relationships with townspeople and build up your farm. It’s really fun. My sister, my mom and I all play it.
Okay, that’s it for this post! See you next time!
