Guess who officially turned thirteen today? Meeee!

I have finally entered the stage of my life where I can call myself a 'teenager'.  I can now watch R-13 movies or PG-13 movies without a chaperone, though I have to be careful.

What did I do to celebrate?  Well not much, really.  I'm not a really big fan of birthday parties, though my family and I went to some thrift stores in Cubao.  It was awesome!  I can't wait to come back and probably buy stuff.

Funny, I received three necklaces as gifts, one with a heart pendant, one with a girl, and one with a microphone.  Cool, right? 

I should better go back to doing what I have to do, so goodbye for now!

Sometimes, it just saddens me that people think homeschooled kids are just caged up inside the house, and do nothing else but study.  They are wrong.  We, homeschoolers, aren't children who are cut off from the world.  We get to learn anywhere, anytime, not just inside the four walls of a classroom.

To prove that, here's a clip from Dolphin Tale that shows how homeschoolers are really sociable! 

So don't just think we're trapped inside our homes.  Homeschoolers are more than that! 

Dolphin Tale

I highly recommend you guys to watch this movie!  It's a great watch for the family and is very inspiring!

Dolphin Tale is based on the true story of Winter, a dolphin who lost her tail due to being entrapped in a crab trap in the Indian River in Fort Pierce, Florida.  She is discovered by a boy named Sawyer Nelson and is rescued by the Clearwater Marine Hospital.  Sawyer tries to convince everyone to help save Winter by creating a prosthetic tail to replace the dolphin's missing one.  It is truly a tale of faith and courage.

Do you sometimes feel broken?  Do you sometimes feel that you're not worth anything?  Have you lost hope?  This movie is for you.  Winter lost something that she extremely needed, but did she give up?  She never lost hope.  If a little dolphin can do it, so can you!

I loved this movie because it shows that we kids can do something.  We just have to have the guts and creativity!  It also had a homeschooled character in it!  This is definitely one of those movies that actually show homeschooling in a positive light.  So for all you homeschoolers, you're definitely going to love this movie.

Steve Jobs has passed away.  Kudos to the brilliant genius of the age.  May you rest in peace.

You can actually send Apple your thoughts, memories & condolences at rememberingsteve@apple.com.  Here is what I sent:

"Thank you, Steve Jobs, for helping me make the world my classroom.  Thanks to you, I have better realized my love for art and my wish to become an animator when I grow up.

You have been a great inspiration to us, young people.  Rest in peace."

Loony Lovegood

Just a quick random sketch of who I'm dressing up as for Halloween! c:

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Dear Mom,

Happy birthday!  Even though you've been fed up about my stubborness a hundred times, you're still the best mom for me.  I hope God gives you more years to come!  I love you!

October is finally here!

Here are the things I am very excited about for this month:
  • I'm turning thirteen on the 23rd! Woah!
  • I am veeeeery excited for CISV Mini-Camp!  This will my be my second year attending.  Can't wait!
  • I'm also pretty hyped up for Halloween!  I'll be dressing up as Luna Lovegood.  I'll be making my own tie, Spectre Specs & wand for my costume.
Even though all these things are quite fun, I'll be finishing up my second quarter so I'll be really busy as well.  Please be good, October!
