Back to school

What a joke!!!

all seasons in one day 16 °C

I knew the school system here was different, but here everybody was like shouting and screaming in the class in front of the teacher disrespecting (kinda) as far as India is concerned we did not did all this, if somebody was late not permission, no greeting no respect it all seem kind of strange to me and it grew more wierd when we were passed our learning target in health class and we were going to learn about drugs,alcohol,sex,tobaco and all of the other "unusual" stuff. We respect our teachers do not learn about all the stuff in class 8th, oh and before I forget my classmates do not like to volunteer in reading, presenting any of the stuff, speaking, sharing their views and they do not like to be pointed out. This was bit of unusual 'cause in India we love to do all this stuff

My Trip to Washington

all seasons in one day 25 °C

I with my mother and brother came to USA and stayed in washington we enjoyed a lot, the first day we went to find a store to eat some food but seemed that Washington is not very vegetarian friendly we had to eat salad and very stupid kind of food. We stayed in dupont rennaisance hotel in Washington and as it was a kind of hep hotel so we just got got to eat salads and a coke so it was very boring, but the next day we went to see the museums in washington and they were very good. While in Washington we got to know that our flight and our mother's flight were not the same and her flight was before our's, so she left us and told me to take care of my brother and be very brave and then we had a connecting flight in
Chicago to Portland and we had to hurry to catch the flight and then the flight we were supposed to be on was delayed of some mechanical irregularities and then I was very worried, the man on the front desk helped me and he blocked some seats for us.

Getting shifted

One more Headache

all seasons in one day

So today we got shifted to our appartment and it was much of a headache for my mom because we were four kids and we did everything possible to explore the house and kill the time so we played lots of games that were usual AND unusual both. We joined the table,made the couch, settled the tv, bought table lamps,crockeries,balls(FOR PLAYING OFCOURse), went to our schools(mine and my brother's),ate something, layed the couch,spreaded the sheets and lots more. We shifted to the lakes apartments in Beaverton,OR. We got to know that this was the city that there were many Indians so we are planning to meet some of them. The first day was very good and we freaked out but then who knows what happens tommorow, we also got to know that these apartments were in the middle of everywhere so we dont need to be tensed about anything but the sad thing is that people in these apartments are not so interacting and we Indians are used to lots of interaction among people you dont know also, so what if they are not before going we will make them. Oregon is a beautiful place. Ok bye.100_1251
