School started today. 😀
Overall it’s been a pretty good day so far…
I got up and stretched briefly, then did Bible, History, Literature and started French before breakfast (no, I’m not insane – we eat breakfast at 9 AM…). After breakfast I did Pre-Calculus, Physics, music Theory, and Arabic, then read for half an hour on the exercise bike.
Somehow I managed to do all that and all of my chores before lunch time… so now I just have music left.
I love school. I have more work to do tomorrow, so I shouldn’t be bored at all… 😀
Physics was amazing so far, and not too hard to wrap my head around, and the math was lots easier than chemistry. Pre-Cal so far is a piece of cake, so is literature.
Ramadan starts tomorrow (probably).
Scary that this is our third Ramadan here and my third birthday here already, it doesn’t seem like we’ve lived here that long. But it’s true, we have, and I love it. 🙂

The hummus one is filmed in some familiar territory to me, Shatila, New Yasmeen Bakery, and Cedarland Restaurant are places we lived by in Michigan… Cedarland was right across from the library, which was easily in walking distance from our house.
I should go practice music… 🙂
