I'm tired of moving. When dad and Zoe had the twins, they said that the townhouse was too much for two little babies and too many stairs.
Well, dad got a promotion to Dean of Students. Part of his compensation included subsidized housing near Pierce University, so we moved...again.
The house is nice, we each have our own rooms-except the twins. That part is nice, I don't have to share with Issac anymore.
It means that I have room for a mechanical bench and Issac has room for all his books.
We are supposed to be thinking about our future according to all the conversations with dad and Zoe.
Issac and I have been working on our skills since we want to build our Core Skill Exam (CSE) scores for the SPATs. Right now we are trying to study so we can get enough of a score to enter the University of Apple Valley.
I don't think we have the high scores needed to get into Pierce University. Even though dad is Dean of Students there and
Zoe is a professor with dual appointments at Pierce University and University of Apple Valley.
Other than trying to prepare for our exams, the only other big news is Naraj's upcoming wedding. He is getting married in a few simweeks and everything is moving really fast. I don't think I would have agreed to an arranged marriage, but I haven't seen my girlfriend shot in front of me either, so maybe that would have changed my mind.
