The Countdown Has Started

Y’all ready!?! Go and get yourself together, there’s no time to rest! AndĀ if you put the time in, I’ll put you to the test– ah, forget it. I’m actually doing this ON TIME! Goooooooo me! Woo-hoo! Okay, calming down. Since last time on Grace’z Place… We still don’t have any idea what to do with our pets, even though we’re leaving in less than two weeks. Esh. (That’s a word, by the way.) I’m still a weirdo who does nothing. We did our play, it went great! My costume was AWESOME. Maybe I’ll put a picture somewhere or something. (So professional today!) We got a new game, so I’ve been playing that a lot. And I actually have done some pre-writing nonsense, so I’ve got that going for me! Mom’s been kind enough to scan some things for me, so I might show you guys (assuming you are guys. Or that...

Rest In Pieces

Long time, no see! Or long time, no write, I suppose. It’s… actually not been as long as I thought, so that’s a pleasant surprise! Regardless, I really am going to try to write on here more regularly. Really! So, since last time, I have done almost NOTHING to do with Through the Door other than some sketches. In fact, I haven’t done anything to do with writing. Instead, I’ve been watching YouTube, reading comics (and books too, occasionally), playing video games, and sometimes interacting with people. Co-op marches on, and I’ve got my script memorized and know most of the songs. My costumes looking pretty great, too! I have an obsession with music and making playlists for my books (in theory, I’ll listen to them while I write, but again, I haven’t been writing.) My wonderful older sister, ‘Livia, has actually left the country and is...

The Possibilities Are Never Ending

At long last, I can announce my GLORIOUSLY UNPROFESSIONAL RETURN! So… I don’t really have an excuse. I just keep forgetting about my blog. Then Sam updated her blog, so then I realized, “What, I haven’t written on here since last year!?!” And then I was like, “Well, if it means not working on my book…” As for the title… MUSIC. IS. AWESOME. Since I last wrote, well… I wrote Darkness Born, which was fun. No, really, actually just writing something and not caring about how good it was was a very nice relief from all the editing nonsense I’ve supposedly been doing. Even if it is a terrible book. After that NaNo nonsense I took a month-long break from writing and honed my drawing skills. To my shock, I discovered I could draw! Seriously! I was as surprised as you are. We also did our co-op play, The Bethlehem Star, and I was...

Here It Comes!

Hello again, voyagers! So, here I am again. And this time, I’m determined not to use all-capitals or extra exclamation points!. This is going to look SO so professional!. Anyway, what’s the news? Well… I haven’t written anything other than a short story for school. I have been training Jinx a little bit, and I have been working on this blue cloth-cover-thing with Mom. So far we’ve cut out the pieces and are now trying to figure out how to attach them… I have also had a sleepover with a friend, gone to co-op, been enlisted as a camel in said co-op, done school, and made Apple Slices (that links pretty close to the recipe I used), which Olivia says is really just apple pie. They tasted good, either way. With Thanksgiving coming up, any practice is good practice!. Speaking of upcoming events, I’m sure you can guess what comes after Halloween and...

Back on Track

Buenos dias, buddies! Assuming it is morning, that is. Okay, okay, yes, it’s been a while, but in my defense, the big computer was out of order and it was only a week or so ago we finally got this new one. And. It. Is. AWESOMESAUCE. I mean, like it turns on and the ‘A’ key works perfectly well–see, AAAAAAAAaaaaaaaa. It’s got a few bugs, but I’d be more worried if an electronic device didn’t have problems. So anywho, since I last wrote… Well. Hmm. We’ve been doing school, I’ve practiced my drawing skills, and–oh! I’ve got a new bike! That’s exciting! And I ate at Planet Yogurt with Olivia. And we’ve started going to homeschool co-op frequently, and we’ve played Wii and watched TV shows and… That’s about it. But WE HAVE A NEW COMPUTER now, so I’m planning to get my life back on...

Ode to Cats, Brothers, and Other Relations

Hello, readers fair and few! As you may realize, yesterday was my brother’s birthday. What you may not know is that it was also the day our lovely grandparents + aunt, Grandmaita, Grandpa, and Tia, left. So bittersweet. Since I last wrote, I’ve had some fun times with Renee, who stayed with us, and Sam, who had returned to Nairobi (though unfortunately, there wasn’t much overlap between Renee’s visit and Sam’s), watched Finding Dory with the Mundy’s (is that how you’d say it?) (It was pretty awesome, considering it was about fish, of all things!), and as I mentioned before, Grandmaita, Grandpa, and Tia came for a visit! Also, very sadly, Sam and her fam moved to a WHOLE ‘NOTHER CONTINENT!!! So with family extended, we did a whole load of fun stuff, from the Giraffe Center to the Lake Naivasha cabins to Olivia, Mom, and Tia going to the...

It Has Been TOO LOOOOONG…

He-llo, peoples! I’ve not written in a long time… TOO long, really. Why? Because I am lazy and like to procrastinate. Yeah… So, what’s happened since I last wrote… TWO MONTHS AGO, at LEAST!?! Well, there was Educational Support Week, which I’ve written about before–ESW, ESW! Yup, homeschool week’s always pretty crazy–I got lost more than anything else, but it was still a lot of fun, especially since I got to hang with my two good friends, Renee and Sam. Speaking of which, for a while Sam and her familia were our neighbors, which was crazy fun. We kicked shoes, we watched YouTube, we played Minecraft, we played Wii, we did it all over again. What fun! Sadly, she left recently, leaving me ALONE in THE WORLD. Well, not really. I just like being dramatic. Back to the subject of homeschool week; some of the fun things we did were:...

Out of the Desert and Into the Swamp

Hey, how’s it going? Good? I hope so. I figured it was about time for another boring blog entry, about how I’ve been obsessing over video games, cute furry aliens, and the weather. Yeah, you know, just the usual stuff–Raven’s loud but cute and affectionate, Jinx is constantly escaping the yard and getting muddy, I’ve discovered the wonders of YouTube, and we have unlimited internet ’cause we moved to Nairobi. Wait, did I just say that? WE MOVED TO NAIROBI. Oh, yes, just another boring little news flash. On another note… Seriously, though. A few days after I last wrote–ten, I think–we celebrated my birthday! Yay! We went to Trackmark, swam, saw stuff on TV, ate pie and homemade ice cream… It was pretty great. I even cut myself on one of my presents. -_- AND I got an awesome present from my awesome neighbor and she named her...
