Middle School

Today was my second day of middle school! Yesterday, was a short day, and there was only sixth graders. But today was different, today there was sixth graders, eight graders, and seventh graders as well. Let me just say, I thought that the eighth graders were big, and a little bit scary. But I probably won't feel that way for long. One day I'll be the big bad eighth grader on campus. I noticed some interesting new trends for our age, everyone was wearing feathers. Big feathers, little feathers, colored feathers, plain feathers. I was wearing a white, lace skirt (by the way lace is in this year) and I saw someone else wearing the exact same skirt as me. Although, she was wearing the same skirt as me, she wore it in a totally different way that looked cute also. I wore it with more of a preppy look while she had more of a pulled together lace look. Another trend I noticed is Tom's (Tom's are shoes). People had them in all sorts of colors and textures. Don't be surprised if you see people wearing the same shoes as you, they are very popular and match any outfit you desire. I'm loving middle school so far!

Organizing Your Desk

Hello! A lot of us have messy desks. So today I'm writing about how to clear of your messy desk and make it organized. Now, a lot of you are probably thinking why do I want to clean my desk? And the answer to that is, you want to clean your desk so then you have a clean spot to work. And if your desk is clean it's way easier to use.
What you'll need for this project is yourself, and a messy desk.
1. Ok, so the first thing you need to do is take everything off your desk.
2. Once everything is off your desk, look at the things that you had on your desk. If they are old papers you don't need anymore, recycle them! And if there is something you don't want or need anymore, you don't have to keep it, give it away or donate it. Try to get as much off your desk as possible, so that you have room to use your desk.
3. Now before you put the things back onto your desk, clean off the desk. It's good to have a clean working environment.
4. Now, you get to put everything back on your desk. But remember you need a good space to work, so arrange your things in a way that gives you lots of room. Make sure the things you use a lot are in a quick access spot, so you can get them easily. I know that I have trouble keeping all of my little things that I make, or things I like around on my desk. So if you have this problem, just pick one or two things out that you like. Just because your desk is neat, douse not mean that you can't have anything on your desk, Just have out some things that you like, and some things you need. And make sure that your desk has some of your style in it, to show your personality!

Yesterday, I found out that my one-strap-backpack was too small! I put all of my things that I'll take to school inside, and when I tried to zipper it up, I could not close the backpack! And a few days before we found out my backpack was too small, we were at Target. (I don't remember why, but we needed something probably). Anyway, me and my mom went over check out the back-to-school-supplies. By the way, it was all messy! And we saw some backpacks, so we spent some time checking out the backpacks. I found this one that I really liked. It was green with yellow, white, blue, and purple flowers on it. I really liked it (and I still do). So when we found out about my one-strap backpack not working, I asked my mom if we could return the one-strap backpack, and get the pretty green one. And she said yes! So today we went over to Target today, and I got to get it! I love it. It's so cool. There's a bunch of pockets on the inside, and some on the outside too. In the front pocket that's where I have some post-it notes. And that's the only thing I have in the outside pockets. The in the second row of pockets, I have some pencils, colored pencils, calculators, And a stapler. On the third pocket (the biggest one), is where I keep my pencil pouch, my folders I keep in a pocket that's meant for a computer, but I don't need a computer, and my folders fit perfectly. I also keep my two binders, spiral not books, and composition books. And to tell you the truth, I like this backpack even more then I like the first one!

My play date!

Today, one of my really good friends came over to play with me. First, we made a secret club (so I can't tell you where it is, or what it looks like.) What we do in our club is, we talk, and we add onto our spots in the club house. But we never came up with a name for the club. And, we would go do things like, shoot rubber bands, or play the flip-flop game. And when someone came by, we would act like a rock. I think that my favorite thing about today, was when my mom came near the tent, she saw us and peeked her head into our clubhouse, we acted like a rock. Then she looked at us, and asked what we were doing. Then we grabbed our squirt guns, and squirted my mom, and we chases her away! It was fun. And I think that my mom had fun then too.

Today I Visited My Old Neighbor

This picture you see above is of me and my old neighbor, from the last neighborhood I lived in. We each moved, She moved up to her other house, and is now renting her other one. And I moved into a little bit bigger house. But we are each still in the same town as we were before. First we met each other at a restaurant, and ate breakfast there. Then we headed up to her house. It was a little bit of a drive, but it was a very pretty ride. When we got there she showed me and my mom her gardens, it was so pretty! There was a lot of trees, and we even saw one of her cats. After we looked at all of the trees and flowers, we got to see the house. I loved the house! It was so bright and open. When you walk into the house, to the left, that's where the kitchen was. And to the right, was the dinning room, then living room. In the living room, that's how you got into the guest room. Upstairs, is her bed room, bathroom, and the cats bedroom (she has two cats.) We had a lot of catching up to do. So we did a lot of chatting. I had so much fun today, and I'm so happy that I got to see my old neighbor!

My New Outfit (For The First Day Of School)

Today, me and my mom went shopping for my "first day of school outfit." We went to Abercrombie and I got an outfit that I just love! And the best part is that I picked it out. I got a white, lace skirt, and I think that's my favorite thing I got. I got a pink shirt (I look good in pink) that has white, pink, and navy colored hair bows. I got that shirt because I think that it's my style, and I always wear bows in my hair! And I'm wearing a navy sweater that has a pretty flower on it. And I got this because I liked it, and because it goes with my new outfit and a lot of my other clothes. My first day of school starts on Monday and I'm so excited! Today I had so much fun shopping with my mom! (The picture of my outfit is to the left).
