Hi all! I’m really sorry this blog is late (as they always are), and I have no excuse other than the fact that the IB is just doing what the IB does best! Yesterday I finally did my English Individual Oral Commentary, which is something I’ve been dreading for a long time, but in […]

Mazama Photos 2!

Hi all! So today we drove about half an hour to a place called Sun Mountain. The ski trails there are pretty intense, so I went snow shoeing with her parents while Johanna tackled some of the more intense trails. Snow shoeing was a lot of fun! There were a lot of very steep hills […]

Mazama Photos 1

Hi all, just a quick update to say I’m pretty busy here, hence the radio silence. I’m finding cross country skiing extremely challenging, mainly because I’m a downhill skier, and the technique (which is what makes you move) in cross country is almost the opposite, and very finicky. It’s taking me a while, but I’m […]

At Last, Bainbridge

So after nearly 24 hours of travelling, and seeing 3pm twice on a Saturday (once in Beijing, once here) I’m finally here! This blog is going to be short and sweet because I’m literally falling asleep at my laptop. I’m really grateful to be able to spend Winter Break this year in Seattle (or more […]

Third Term

SO I left things on a bit of a cliffhanger with my last blog,  I’m sorry for the absence, I truly am, and I just hope I convey how hectic and how absolutely mental this term has been. I’m hoping to do a bit more of a reflective blog when I finally arrive at my […]

Fortnight Part 1!

So I had a spare 20 mins and decided to update you all very quickly on my life! My parents left on saturday after a fantastic couple of days in Hong Kong with them… unfortunately it rained the entire time, meaning that they didn’t get to visit the peak, but they did get to see […]
