For school my brother and I are going to start doing journal entries about the past week each Monday morning or Sunday night. Here are a few things that stood out to me from this past week:
"The Amazing Race" TV show started on the 17th. So far my least favorite teams are Max and Katie and Jessica and John. I like the YouTube people. They seem like a lot of fun. I'm still sort of getting to know the other teams, but the second express pass is causing a lot of drama.
On the 19th I started my first volunteering shift at our local library! I got to work in the back room and check books in. I also got to shelve DVDs and find the DVDs that people have requested. I worked from 10-12. My next shift is tomorrow and I might actually get to work at the front desk!
On the 20th Daddy took my brother and me to the planetarium. I love finding constellations. It was super cool! And between that and a PBS show called NOVA that we watched, I got all sorts of inspiration for a new book I'm writing called Cosmo. It's about a fourteen-year-old girl named Cosmo Moonshine who lives with her single mom in an apartment in New York City. Cosmo wants to be an astronomer and go to college, but she and her mom are extremely poor.
On the 22nd Daddy took my brother and me to an Internal Combustion Engine class for our homeschool group. After that our family went to an all-you-can-eat pizza place with a bunch of our friends. My BFF Kirsten, her sisters Avery and Sophie, and I laughed a ton and talked a lot about Taylor Swift. We also talked about The Host since the movie is coming out soon and we want to see it when it comes to the movies.
On the 23rd my friend Dana came over. We played some board games and built some awesome houses and other structures on Minecraft.
On the 24th my brother and I watched a bunch of "Phineas and Ferb" episodes on Netflix while our parents had their book club. The most hilarious one was called "Bad Hair Day." We loved the ending best.
Today (the 25th) a bunch of friends came over to play D&D from 10-12.
We did all this and more in between a ton of Minecraft.
How was your week? Leave a comment! :D

Journal Entry #1
I am an 18-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
