It's Today?! - The Story of My Life

Who knows maybe with the incentive, I may keep this diary, and not just as a collections of rants, and updates ever time I get ill. I mean seriously, two entries in three years? Both saying "I'm sick"?

For the diary comp. Winner of May.


12. Canoeing and Composers 26-5-15

A friend has a birthday coming up, and invited my sister and I on a trip canoeing down the Thames, and so a group of about eight of us set off about midday down the river in our blow up canoes.

It started off shallow, and the boats kept getting stuck on the bottom, and my friend and I spent most our time spinning round. Our steering was not quite up to scratch, to put it one way, as one of the guys enjoyed pointing out.

It was a lot of fun, and we had some good laughs. I enjoyed how the main topic of conversation stayed forever around revision and exams. I wonder what could possibly be most relevant among a group of teens, huh?

We spent the night camping in their garden, and had a mountain of pancakes between us the next morning. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many before in one place.

One of the guys was absolutely amazing at the piano. He was playing from memory, and I don’t remember the piece’s name, but it was one of those proper, complicated Beethoven or some such composer.

We have a collection of pieces by Beethoven under the name Beathovis. My father was organising the music and couldn’t read his handwriting and so he put it all down as Beathovis and we never got round to changing it. He’s were I get my inability to pronounce things. Because I learnt my entire vocabulary by reading I often pronounce things phonetically, and though I’m not so bad now, I still do it. My parents like to read to each other, and they read the Harry Potter books, alternating chapter. It took an entire book of my mother reading Hermione and my father reading Hermi-one before they realised it was the same character.

The rest of my family had planned to go for an all day hike, but had to cut it short as my other sister had forgotten to bring any socks and ended up with blisters. My mother was rolling her eyes dramatically when my father was telling me.


I was so sleepy yesterday, I nearly fell asleep and completely forgot to make supper until it was about seven pm. I tell you, trying to find food for five people when you’re groggy and half asleep is a joke and a half! The random collection of food I presented was spectacular. We had sausages, quiche, curry, and potatoes. At least I still managed to get a meal on the table before anyone noticed. No complaints to me!


Today is purely for revision now. Dramatic Ironies and resonance, here I come!
