Happy Birthday

Today is Maya's birthday.

Again I woke up before everyone else- precisely 6:17 AM. Then Maya opened her gifts- I'm not telling what they are- and we went down to eat.

Now I am trying to fight the bit of hunger in my body, because there is nothing in the house and we have no idea what to eat.

P.S.- Voting does not work.

And I am also feeling very bored.

Today I woke up precisely at 8 AM to find everyone asleep. After reading a short book, I went downstairs to eat a breakfast of three pancakes with syrup, chocolate milk, and a sticky brownie.

Right before I started this Maya and I were cleaning out her closet (and mine too). I've found my posters and pictures! I now have a large garbage bag filled with disguises- hats, wigs, and costumes. I haven't eaten lunch yet but I'm not particularly hungry yet.

I was hoping for a sunny day, but the weather right now is chilly and cloudy. When my mother opened the window, a blast of cold air came through it and almost made me fall.

Weather Forecast

Have you noticed the unusual change in the weather system? At your house, is it cold, gloomy, and pouring rain in the mornings, pleasant in the afternoons, absolutely gorgeous sunshine in the evenings, and stuffy at night? This is because we are nearing to the end of summer! Say goodbye to swimming in the pool and ice cream and watching TV, because school has started and autumn is just beginning. During October and November (I call them the Slug Season), we will have the pleasure of stepping on slushy mud and worst of all, muddy worms and slugs. It's not very delightful, but it's reality. Sorry to bring you such a dismal report.

Unfair Teachers

Today I have had more than two hours of homework, and I'm still not done with it! Why is this?

Teachers ALWAYS say that they are not giving much homework- if a child would equally spread out the load each day, homework should take only about one hour. They say that children should have a break- play from 4-5:30, and then start their homework. Do they not know that kids have after-school activities, or school duties like safety patrol? They have loaded so much homework on me this week that I have not been sleeping before 10:00 PM, and I also have patrols in the morning. Isn't this unfair and unjust? I think kids should have a say in their homework- less homework, less expectations, and NO book reports! If you don't do at least a small bit of those nasty reports every day, I guarantee you that you will be staying up the night before it is due and cramming the whole thing into a short period of time. So if you are having similar problems like this, please make a comment and give me feedback. This is important!

Dear Journal:
Today has been okay so far. Even though I woke up really late and went to Maya's room to find her at her desk, I've accomplished many things.
  • Practiced piano
  • Finished all my homework except for my annoying, boring, tiresome, useless, and irritating book report due the coming Friday and an "All About Me" topic sheet.
  • Cleaned up my room- took the papers off my desk, arranged everything neatly, put junk into drawers, put dirty clothes into hamper and clean ones back into the closet...

After a delicious lunch, AND after watching Roddick beat some Yoghzenky guy or something like that in the US Open, I have finally reached my final destination after a lengthy, life-threatening, risky journey down the stairs to the computer to write down today's events, even though I am aware that Maya may have placed some sneaky spies around here. If I am not captured by the mighty Maya by the end of the day, I will write once more at night to conclude the interesting events of today.
