It’s really starting to kick in. And I think I’m losing it.
I’m just gonna be honest: I’m a procrastinator (side note: I have a hilarious TED talk you need to watch if you are a procrastinator, know a procrastinator, or have been on the same planet as a procrastinator: ted.com/tim_urban_mind_of_a_procrastinator). Usually, the Panic Monster (see TED talk above) sets in before it’s too late. But sometimes, the Panic Monster is bound with a LEGO chain, buried under party invitations and snuffed out by The Winds Of Something More Fun Than The Thing You Have To Do.
Because of this, I have a lot of studying to do. This is the part where I list off everything I have to do.

I am very, very sorry.
I never announced that I was taking a break, and I didn’t even realize that I would. I have been meaning to post for some time, but I never really had the chance.
In seventh grade, your grades really count towards high school. You take the tests in 8th, but in 7th is where the stress comes. With an average of 4 homework-heavy classes a day (yes, I did the math) plus other classes that may or may not give homework, we have ourselves a full evening of homework, test prep, and after-school activities.

I am writing this post with my brightness down to one bar because I am at my grandparent’s house and me–the genius–forgot to bring my computer charger. MAJOR FACEPALM. 🤦🏽♂️I am praying I can get through this post with my battery at 24%.

I think this title is pretty self-explanatory. I’m a little boy with an awesome iPhone camera with hopes of one day achieving fame through photography.

Happy April everybody!
April is also the month with the most GIFs (or moving pictures, as seen above) created about it.

Today was our last day in Florida!
I woke up at 7:00 and started packing my belongings. Around 9:00 we went to breakfast at the golf club. I had the biscuits and gravy with a glass of orange juice.

Today we went to the beach! We left around 8:45, and got there around 10.
Kyra and I built 3 different nations out of the sand, each with their own back story.

We went to the pool around 10 AM, and it got cloudy around noon so we went back to our condo. I worked a little on my VIDA collection (which I hope you guys will visit), and at 3:15 we went to see A Dog’s Purpose.

Grandpa came to visit today, and he brought a giant tub of comic books!
Kyra and I have spent the last hour or so reading these, along with watching Mall Cop.

For years we’ve been going to our condo in Florida, and we always see alligators in ponds and small lakes around the area. Recently, they’ve started removing the alligators for safety reasons.

Our first day in Florida was really fun! After waking up at 9:10, I went to the store with my dad to get some groceries. When we came back, we unloaded them into the fridge and pantry, and I poured two cups of iced tea and went down to the pool, where Kyra and my mom already were.

I’ve decided that every day I’m in Florida I will publish a blog post. Today is technically our second day since we arrived yesterday at 11:30 PM, but I’m not counting it.

I just recently started writing a short story about a member of the LGBTQ community named Andy. He’s dealing with all these feelings, and whether or not to come out to his friends and family, and I’m really happy I’ve started writing it.

June 9th was our last day of school, and we were dismissed at 11:45. I took pictures of all my classmates, had them sign my yearbook and school t-shirt, and tried to hug most of them.
I knew today would be especially sad for me because we were moving to Illinois, and I might not see them again.
I don’t like to be bitter, but I was kind of glad that I wouldn’t see one student again, who had treated me badly during 3 of my 4 years at Salem Hills. They continually made faces at me, teased me, made fun of my interests and pointed out every flaw I had. As I still respect the person, I will keep them anonymous and under the fake name of Rom.

I just recently joined an amazing company called VIDA. It takes artwork and turns it into things like pillows, scarves, and tote bags. All VIDA designers get 10% of the money earned from their creations.
In addition, they donate a portion of their sales to help fund literacy programs for their manufacturers. I am proud to be part of this amazing program, and I hope you will help support them by buying something from my collection page or from someone else.

Hey, guys, it’s Kiran.
I know I haven’t posted a lot lately, and I’m super sorry! But, at least I’m posting now!
I’m going to talk a little about our new life in Chicago, subcategory: school. Our school is great! We have 8 3D printers, 15 sewing machines, a laser cutter and a machine called the Carvey.
Here is what we have been learning in Trimester 1:

Before you ask: no, this is not the story of my birth.
When Kiranmathew appears as one word, you know I’m referring to this blog. Not me. That would be weird.
You can find the video on Kiranmathew’s life story (Ok, I’ll admit, this sentence makes it sound like Kiranmathew is a person. Which he is, but with a space in the middle. I’ll stop now) on my new YouTube channel or right here.

After living in a 1 bedroom apartment since my SIG classes started, I am excited to announce we have found a place to live… for the next year. For obvious reasons I will not give out the name of the apartment building or the street on which it is located, but I will tell you that it is amazing!
It is a duplex apartment, meaning it has 2 floors. My family and I have been working hard to pack up our things from our house in Rochester, Minnesota and load them into the moving truck. We also went through the stuff from out condo in St. Paul to get things we wanted to bring.

My period 4 class was Fan Fiction Fun. Mostly we just wrote our Fan Fiction (in case you were wondering, I wrote fan fiction about the book The Trials Of Apollo, which will be published on Kiranmathew very soon).
Since I finished early, I also wrote a story from the perspective of a person named Julius House. You can find that story here.
That’s pretty much it!
