Since I haven’t been posting in a while (and I mean a while) I thought it would be fitting to catch you up on the major events so far.
I made it to the spelling bee once again and lost once again.
A local magazine came by for their Top Ten Teens list and came across me, even though I’m 11. I had a photoshoot and will be featured on the Ventura Boulevard magazine.
This year, the 6th grade science fair is optional, and I decided to do it. My project is about making concrete out of Martian soil and testing it against normal concrete.
I’m writing code for a new game called Micromanage Mars! You are the director of Mars operations, and you have to make sure none of your meters reach zero throughout the course of your mission. Throughout the Hab and the greenhouse, experiments, crops, and life support systems beg for your attention. Keep your crew alive and they’ll thank you!
Second Year of Alopecia
As of last weekend, I have had alopecia for two years. It started out as universalis, then dropped to totalis. That means I’m getting closer and closer to hair!
This hasn’t happened yet, but it will in about two weeks! I’m going to the Olympic Peninsula Institute with the rest of the 6th grade for a week to learn about the forces of nature.
I recently won 7th place in the Math League competition at Mirman School, along with two of my friends who got 9th and 5th place with me.
In a recent swim meet, I broke all of my personal records in the 50 freestyle, 50 breaststroke, 50 butterfly, and 100 IM.
What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You…Taller?
I’m officially taller than my mom now. Yay!
I now have both top and bottom braces in. Hopefully they’ll stay in for two years.
That’s mostly it for the past six months. Well, I hope you enjoyed this post and check out more from peytonpecia.
