How was your Thanksgiving holiday? Mine was a disaster - the dinner, that is. I volunteered to cook the turkey, stuffing and gravy, but it was a total mess! The turkey was undercooked, the stuffing was too soggy, and the gravy was watery. We ended up having to order pizza.

We still had a good Thanksgiving even though we didn't get to have the traditional turkey dinner. We played a competitive-but-friendly game of football in the backyard and then crashed on the couch to watch Ratatouille on DVD afterwards. Plus, my mom bought a couple of pumpkin pies, so it still felt a little like a Thanksgiving feast. But the next time I volunteer to cook dinner, I'm going to enlist the help of my sister. Actually, I'm not sure if she would be a good helper, but at least I can make her do all the stuff that I don't want to do, like chopping onions.

In school-related news, things are going really well with the recycling program! I guess people noticed all the flyers I posted up in the hallways cuz the pop cans and bottles started flooding in! So far, we've collected more than 20,000 cans and bottles! Isn't that great? All the money we collect will go to help pay for extracurricular clubs, field trips and the upcoming Christmas dance in December. I'm really excited that this project is turning out to be a success!

Hmm... I'm trying to think of something more to write, but nothing's comin' to mind. I guess I'm still sufferin' from food coma from all that pizza and pumpkin pie I ate for Thanksgiving dinner... and for breakfast and lunch the next day. I should get off my butt and start working out. What are some good exercises to do now that it's getting colder? and let me know your suggestions!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

    Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D

    There is a slight issue with that. I am rarely comfortable talking with children my own age.

    I go to a good private school and I was wondering if I should tell any of my friends/more like peers that I am gifted. This means that I am at least two standard deviations in terms of IQ than them. I don't know what to do. Any help?
