Positivity Post #8

I remember, 5 years ago when we bought this house, that I thought it was absolutely amazing. What I didn’t anticipate is that all the hard work my parents and I put into it could make it look even better. We turned a concrete bunker (our basement) into an amazing multi-purpose room, complete with books, toys, exercise machines, and couches. We even went so far as to buy curtains for the windows from India in order to spruce it up. And today, my dad and I installed more curtains, curtain rods, and curtain holdbacks all over our house. To most people, this would seem like a chore; to me, it is an opportunity to spend more quality time with my parents =].

Good Days.

We finally finished renovating our basement, about a week ago. It’s all painted and carpeted and kind of furnished, but it still needs some electrical work done. For the past few days, my family and I have been extremely busy trying to shift all of our furniture and miscellaneous items down there. We managed to make a pretty large dent in our brand new wall (x.x) while getting our sofas downstairs, but that was the only hitch. So far. We still need to bring down the TV and all of its satellite appliances (that’s a pun, by the way =D), as well as our recently dismantled Ping-Pong table.

School is progressing very well for me, except in History, as I stated in my last post. Theory of Knowledge classes remain as interesting as ever, and I’m glad we don’t have any homework for it over this long weekend. That being said, I have to do some Chemistry projects, a Chemistry lab, and start on an English project as well. But it’s OK, I have three days to do it (this means that there will probably be a post on Monday night about my unstarted projects ^^). Anyway, busy weekend ahead for me, so I’ll keep this post short.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
