Welcome to my blog (I feel like I should say something more scintillating than that) (Dang it). Now is the time to leave if you clicked on the wrong thing. Thank you. Most of you already know my story so I won’t have to explain. In short, I am 11 years old and I live on a boat.Yeah no, its not a cruise boat and we do have bathrooms (haha). We’ve been living on our boat, Dafne 2, for a year now. My sisters and I have been homeschooling and my parents have been taking two years off from work. We are currently in Indonesia and we just got back from our trip to the States. My parents and I flew back to the boat early. Stella and Cleo have camps and get back in August. The parents and I have been provisioning and getting cool new gadgets. The mainsail is supposed to arrive on Monday, but we have been preoccupied with our broken washing machine. There has been lots of cursing.
Mom and Dad say I should be working on extracurricular projects before school starts. My projects include: this (blogging), art, Bahasa, doing plays, sewing, and playing the piano. No, I’m not taking all of them up at the same time. Right now I’m just blogging. As you can see, it’s not going very well. (This is so awkward). As the year progresses, and I start school, I will begin other projects.
Dad said blogging is about saying where you are, what you'r doing, because my experiences are unique. I agree with him on all of those reasons, but this first blog post should be about introducing myself and telling you my big secret. Here it is: THIS ISN’T REALLY A BLOG!
*Gasp* (Disappointed face)
There you have it. That felt good getting it out of my system. But what is this, if it isn’t a blog? Well if a blog is mostly about all the reasons my dad listed, then my blog is going to be a digital diary. I like the sound of that. So, if you were looking for a blog from a cruiser kid, that tells you all about where they are at the moment, then you have found what you are looking for and more. (Now’s the time to be excited because I feel kinda sorta bad about betraying you).
