Yesterday my Dad and I went to turn in papers so that I could get a passport. The security guard was a short, fat black guy whose shoulders were at his eye level. He also had a gold tooth, and his shoes were very shiny, and his pants were pulled up way too high. He had a billy club and a gun, and he was angry.

We saw the security guy again today when we went in to pick up the passports. It didn’t take very long to get the passport and we left. Then I went to school and when I got home I was very excited to go on the trip. My grandparents were thoughtful enough to get Chinese money from the bank and send it to me to use on the trip. The money looked very interesting and I will be able to use it in Hong Kong to buy a fried cat.

The flight is 20 hours and I can’t wait to go on the trip.

Today it is very nice outside and I had a chance to ride my longboard for the first time since summer because I’m so badass.  Today I asked my teachers about work I am going to miss while I am absent from school.  They were all cool and said I could make it up when I got back.  I will probably finish our next English book before the other kids even start it because the flight is like 20 hours and I will be able to do lots of reading.  I just finished “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neale Hurston.  I found this book boring because it was about how girls like to cry or something.

I can’t wait for the trip.  Today my History teacher told me today that she went to Singapore and that the subways are immaculately clean and that it is awesome.   I think I will have a great time in Asia.  My Dad told me that we will be in Tokyo for six hours and it would be cool to go see the city during that time if we can.

I am very excited about my trip to Asia next week.  First, I am flying to Japan with my father, then we will fly to Singapore where chewing gum is illegal.  Then we will travel to Hong Kong where I will see what it’s like in another country for the first time in my life.

The Flight is 20 hours and I will have a chance to use my portable, personal lumbar support chassis.  I will also have some time to get ahead in my reading for English class.
