Tripoli Girl

School started a week befor Ramadan. When we first went to school they said that the second year can't study English any more, so it was a big problem because I wanted to study English so much. Our principal told us to tell our parents to talk to the amana to return it and let us study English. All my frends lost hope and I was the only girl who didn't lose hope, and after acweek of trying they said that we can study English at last. The second day they gave us our books and we started studying, the sad thing is some of the teacher's are not good, but what can I say? I can't do nothing for that, but I'm so happy to study English, and I'm going to try very hard to be the top in my class, wish me luck.....Nora

the last day of school

Today was the last day of school. It was kind of sad because I had to say goodbye to my friends at school. Some are moving to another school and some are staying at the same school.

Last year I used to study in another school. I really loved it and I had to move to the school that I'm in now because they didn't have specialized social science, because Iwant to study English next year.

I think this is going to be a long holiday. I'm not sure what to do. Everybody is going to watch the world cup. My parents are going to go to Tunisa for maybe two weeks. And me and my two sisters and two brothers are going to stay at my grandmothers house. It's going to be boring, no tv, no games, no nothing. I think I'm going to learn how to cook Libyan food from my grandmother and aunts - boring, boring, boring. I hope the two weeks pass fast. So I can go to my English school in the evenings.

In winter I go to school in the morning and I think I’m going to my English class in the evenings. But usually Thursday evenings I like going to my grandmother’s house if it’s not raining. On Fridays my family and I go to our farm.

In spring I like going on picnics on our farm. Its fun the weather is terrific.

In summer I like doing a lot of things because it’s the school holiday. I love holidays. I go to the beach, farm, my English class, shopping for summer clothes, visiting friends and our family, and I like traveling.

In autumn or fall I usually get ready for school. I go shopping for school clothes and school supplies because school starts in September.

About Me! - my homework for English class

Me and my family:

My name is Nora, I'm from Tripoli and I'm 15. I'm going to be in the second year of secondary school. My father is a businessman. My mother's name is Therese and she's an American Muslim so she changed her name to Khadija. She's an English teacher. I have three brothers and two sisters. The oldest one is Adam and he's sixteen. He's going into the second year of secondary school too. I was born second, after me is my sister Sara. She's thirteen. After her is Yusef, he's eleven, then Jenna who is nine. The youngest is Ibrahim and he's going to be seven soon.

Me and my home:

I live in a flat in Ben Ahure. It's too small for eight people. It has three small bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a TV room and a living room. We have a small, ugly garden, but we're building a new house on our farm in Ain Zarah. It's big enough. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two sitting rooms and a big garden. Next to the garage is a small guest house with a bedroom, bathroom and a small kitchen. In the garden there is a laundryroom.

My free time:

Well, in my free time I like to do a lot of things, like travelling, visiting reletives and friends, having picnics at our farm. I like to go to the internet and sending letters to my friends and family in America and at the same time I chat with them. I also like writing in my blog and opening useful websites.

Tomorrow is a big day for me. Tomorrow I’m going to get my report card from school. I’m so scared I didn’t do well in math, so I’m not sure I’m going to pass. I’m good in all subjects except math. And the best subject is English.

This year I’m studying general science. I didn’t like it. Next year I want to study social science because I want to study language and I’m going to choose English because I like it very much.

That is my plans for next year.
