A cool story is when I and my cousins all went on a two-hour tubing trip down a river. It started raining which didn’t stop us. Until it finally started up with lightning and we had to get off the river fast!

We didn’t know what to do so the grownups kind of made a tent out of themselves. My sensible cousin made a tent out of the tubes. But before long, some of my cousins were turning blue from cold.

Then we found some cranky old ladies who let us come in their cabin. But they scared us silly by telling us about rattlesnakes. So we finally went home.

Making Slime



Another big experience was when one of our goats was having trouble giving birth. No wonder, it turned out she had four kids inside her. Goats usually just have two or three babies.

At this birth, two of the kids came out dead. The other two were born alive but one was sickly and tiny. We thought the mother and the sickly kid would die. But my community and I miraculously nurtured them both back to health and they survived!

Then a week later my family all got covid and so many things changed.

Since I mentioned one of my hobbies is slime, here is how to make it.


In a bowl:
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon borax powder
Mix them together.

In a different bowl:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white glue
Mix them together.
Add food coloring and mix.

Now ssssslllllooooooooowwwwwwwllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyy
mix in the borax solution until it’s all the texture
you want it to be.

Your slime is ready to play!

And, last but not least, my favorite musical artists.


Janelle Monae
Lady Gaga
Sufjan Stevens
…and so much else
