Still On Holiday

Hi everyone,

I am still on holiday and I have started tuition classes. I go to tuition (tutoring) for math and physics class. The reason for going for math and physics tuition class is that I have not being doing very well in those subjects.

This holiday I also got a chance to visit a ranch where I got to see different types of animals. The name of the ranch is Ndaraqwai. The name of the ranch was obtained from the type of tree which is found in that ranch. The tree is used for making furniture.

This weekend I learned about hip pop music, and I learned how to make music without using music instruments. I learned how to use my mouth to make music bits, it was real fun. Also I learned how to write poems.

My Favorite Day

My favorite day of the week is Tuesday because we start with biology class and geography. I like biology most because most of our lessons we do in the laboratory where we do them practically. I am doing the best in history because it is easy to remember and its interesting also because we have a very good history teacher. I like playing football and basketball but I do not play basketball a lot. I like to spend time with my new friends, but since we have not yet known each other long, I spend most of my time with my friends who we had already known each other before we went to the new school. Typically we have the following food at school, some you may have not heard of them but they are very common here in our country. Some of the food are “Ugali” which is eaten with beans, “Makande” which is maize cooked together with beans and we also have rice which is very common. My favorite is Ugali . Our daily schedule in school starts in the morning. We wake up early in the morning and brush our teeth and wear the school uniform. Then we do some cleaning and have our breakfast. After the breakfast we start our lessons. The lessons start at 8:00 a.m and end at 3:30 p.m. After the lessons we have sports or we wash our clothes. Then we have dinner and after dinner we pray and go for evening lessons which starts from 7 :00 pm and ends at 8:00 pm . Then we go to sleep.


In Moshi Town

Today I am in Moshi Town ,working on my Blog page I have graduated from primary school. I got accepted into Tengeru Boy’s School, which I am really excited about. It is the same school that Edward attends. Revo and Deo also graduated from the school.  The school will start on January of 2014 . Last week on Saturday I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest mountain in Africa. I did a one day climb, and I really liked it. I wish I could get another chance to  climb the whole mountain.

Me at the Gate of Mt. KilimanjaroJust recently I got the chance to learn how to make a life plan. Life Plan is a journey of choices, decisions and consequences. So  I got the chance to understand my values, and clearly highlight my goals and also how to pursue them. Let me share with you my top two values and why I value them. a) Love – I believe love is important in this world and mostly love is very important to me, and to receive love I have to show love. b) Respect – I like respecting both young and old, through this I make lots of friends and receive lots of Love.At the Graduation. Other  things that I like to do are, watching the moon and stars at night, reading stories about people and how they succeed in their lives. I had so much fun working on painting the library at my primary school last month with the Salesforce group of volunteers, I hope to see them again next year so we can finish up the library.image-5I am having a great day in town today with Revo, Deo, Edward and Mama Theresa. How was your day today? Tell me what you have been up to. Check out my exam results below, for terms one and two from school for the year 2013. Results for term three will come out soon.

Doing Well In School


I am doing very well in school. I among the top of my class, and take my  studies seriously. I enjoy writing and studying science. Eventually I want to become a pilot, so I can fly a plane and see the world. I also want to work within leadership or become a teacher in collage. I am very aware of the poverty in my  country. I want to succeed in order so that I may help develop  Tanzania.
