On the 5th of June, we welcomed a new family member to our house. His name is Toby, and he is a cat! Karen and boys has always been wanting to adopt a kitty, and now they finally did. Since I also love small animals, I am glad that they decided to adopt a small kitty. When toby arrived, he is only a about a month old, which is really young, so we had to take care of him very carefully. Karen had his “room” and all the things he need prepared before he arrived, so he can sleep soundly on his first night in our house.

Elisa & Toby. How cute!

Hi there! Whether you’re my old reader or this is your first time here, I am glad to see you here! I do know that I haven't been posting for more than three months, which is actually really ridiculous, but now I am back. I just didn't have time to write, that’s all. I really wanted to finish writing all the stories as soon as possible since I might forget what I have experienced in the States. I recently just finished taking a *really hard* midterm exam in my high school in Taiwan, that’s why I am feeling kinda relaxed right now and has a little bit of time now to write. So anyway, I'm back, and I promise that I will finish writing all the stories I have to write. (By “stories I have to write”, I mean stories about everything I experienced in the United States, including the round-California family trip. :D )

During my last month of exchange year in the U.S., I have done various of projects for different subjects. One of them is the Boat Project for physics class. Each trimester, students of Physics 2 class will have to do this project, yet it might be the most fun thing to do in this class throughout the trimester!

3 people will be grouped into a group to do this project. What we have to do is to make our very-own boat all by ourselves and eventually put it into water and one person will have to sit in it to see if it floats. From designing, assembling, to painting, we have to make this boat literally all by ourselves! So it is a really hard job.  The hardest part of this project might be the designing and calculation part, which we have to design the boat and calculate how high and wide the boat should be in order to not let it sink.

Boat-building in progress! :D
