Bellydancing Video!

Here is a video of our bellydancing performance last weekend for those of you who couldn't be there! I am second from the left in the back row. We didn't go all out on costumes, but a girl in the troupe did makeup and everyone in the audience got glow sticks! I'm glad I finally got to do a performance, I've been wanting to for a long time. I've never been very attracted to the stage but this was so much fun!



The countdown is over! Mom just called to say that her plane touched down, and Meema & Papa Bob and Dad & Robby will be here soon! Two more days until SPRING BREAK!

Sandy Beach

I haven't taken many photos lately, but a lot of fun stuff has been happening. On Friday I joined the Spanish Honorary, and today I went to a picnic. I'm also going to be doing a bellydancing performance at the culture fair at school in a few weeks.

Mike and I went to Sandy Beach a few weekends ago. Sandy's is famous for having really strong waves that crash right on the shore, great for body boarding (read: I didn't touch the water). Here are some photos:

^Silly photo of me, because I was excited that I could do the splitz!

Count down until the family comes to visit!

A little belated. I hope the boys took good care of you on your Caribbean adventure and that you had a great birthday!

Little Birdie

I don't have much exciting news so I thought I'd put up some photos of the birds here. I like learning the names of all the local plants and animals.

Common Myna Bird, this is Mike's favorite.

Brazilian Red Cap Cardinals, you always see them in pairs. This is my favorite.

Java Sparrow, you usually see these in small groups in the grass.

African Common Waxbill, you see these in big flocks in the grass.

Anyhow... those are the most common birds here. The pigeons don't count, they're the bird equivalents of homeless people.

Randomly, this is my favorite mural at Manoa:

I'm sure it goes without saying what I'll be eating for the next few months... but aside from my chocolate cereal addiction, I made a baklava experiment. It was edible for the most part. On the right are some oranges in a bowl I made.

This is a special thanks to Mom for my care package: (:

Some of my ceramics pieces are finally out of the kiln!
