Hi everyone! I hope you are fine; I’m not fine. I fainted on Tuesday. It has happened before, but not in over a year. I have gone to a clinic for an EKG and blood sugar test and to the hospital for an x-ray. They were not sure what is making me faint over and over. I have to go back to the hospital next week. I’m in grade seven but in September I’m graduating to secondary school. My favorite subjects are mathematics, history and kiswahili. In mathematics I got an A, in history I got a B and in kiswahili I got an A. Today is the last day of first term at school. I’m on Easter break for one month. We are going to stay two weeks at home and two weeks at school. I’ll be at school for tuition (tutoring) in order to prepare for the District examination and National examination. After the examinations, I will be finished with grade seven. I will go to the village to greet my parents and my friends. 11/30/2013 Hi guys, I hope you all are OK, I am on holiday at the moment and i am hopping to go back to the village next week to spend time with my relatives and friends. School just closed yesterday so i won’t be going going to school for the next whole month of December, i will miss my classmates and friends at school very much during this time. After closing school yesterday, we had some good time, ate chapati, biscuits and some juice both of which were very delicious! School opens again on the 6th of January 2014. Check out my exam results from school for term one for the year 2013. Results for term three will be out early next year. I will publish my results for term two very soon. Here is our grading scale by the way: 81-100 =A, 61-80=B, 41- 60 =C, 31-40=D
