Where Have I Been?

Hey everyone! I feel so bad that I have not updated my blog in two months. The reason I haven't updated is because I have been insanely busy with school, clubs, sports, and homework. I also started high school which took a ton of adjusting. I really missed blogging, and I have gotten over 1,500 views since my last post which is so nice. I have decided to start blogging again so this is a bit of an update on my life. I have so may post ideas, and now I promise I will start writing posts again.

School:  If you don't know, I go to an all-girls school in the Upper East Side of Manhattan (kind of like Gossip Girl, haha). This is not my first time in an all-girls school because I went to one from Nursery to Grade 5. Many people believe that if you go to an all-girls school that you don't meet guys, that's false because you definitely meet boys, you just don't go to school with them. The all-girls school wasn't that big of an adjustment. It was just the change in atmosphere and people. I now have to get up at 5:30 in the morning and leave my house at 6:20. This was a huge adjustment because in past years I would roll out of bed at 7:00 o'clock and I only lived five minutes from school. Now I live 45-60 minutes away from school. Also, some of my classes are harder and different than what I am used too. Overall, I love my school but it was hard to adjust.

My school is near the Metropolitan Museum of Art, so I decided to take some very artsy pictures of myself in the exhibits. PC: my friend who also took very artsy pictures :)

Life: Lately I have been reading more books. I don't like studying on the train so I read books for fun. My friend and I take the train to school every morning so I read my book and she'll study or do homework. The books I have read on the train this year so far are; If I Stay, Love and Other Perishable Items, Where She Went, Fat Angie, Fever, The Geography of You and Me, and The List. I really enjoy reading again because there was a time where I wouldn't read and now I read approximately 25 minutes every day just for fun. Also, I got to see Mockingjay Part 1 (Third Hunger Games Book/Movie) and it was absolutely amazing. Catching Fire was my favorite Hunger Games movie so far. Many other events have happened since my last update and eventually I'll write about those too.

Clubs and Activities: So basically I decided to join a ton of activities and clubs at my school to fill the void that dance has left me with. My fall sport was Field Hockey. I never did sports before this year and personally it was hard for me to do sports because I was using muscles I have never used before and I barely had any stamina. Field Hockey was so much fun and I got to meet so many nice people through it. Not a lot of people I know have done field hockey but it was a fun sport to play and I would definitely play in the next few years. My school doesn't have a Junior Varsity team, so I got to say I play for a varsity team which was cool. My goal for the Summer is to have a "summer body"; a body I feel comfortable in, so I decided to start this winter to achieve my goal. I joined a Running Club at my school, it is non-competitive, and we run anywhere from 1 mile to 3 miles. It is a lot of work because we do this three times a week. For Spring Sports I am planning on doing badminton but I will keep you updated if I follow through with it. 

I also joined my school's choir. We practice once a week and it's pretty intense. We are going to Texas as a trip to do some concerts in March, so that will be a great experience.

Thank you so much for all the people who look at my blog. I am now back to blogging and it feels so nice to be writing again. New posts soon!
