I know that it's been such a long time since I posted, and I've done to many cool things to catch up on all of them, so I'll just tell you the highlights:
Last weekend was AWESOME!!! It was my birthday weekend!!!! We did most of the stuff on Saturday, the day before my birthday. First I had cinnamon rolls for breakfast (yummy!), then I just hung out for a while at home (I got my presents then to-an Argentina jersey, an Adidas backpack, and...oh yeah also a computer. Then we went to Fisherman's Wharf and had a hot fudge ice cream sundae at Ghirardelli's for lunch (yep, that's right - FOR LUNCH). After that I went to a Ripley's Believe It or Not museum that had a lot of cool things like a laser obstacle course and a statue of all the Avengers that's made out of car parts. Then after that we went to a restaurant called Rainforest Café for dinner. Rainforest Café is my favorite restaurant because there are all these real waterfalls and leaves and giant animals (not real) that actually move. There are also some real animals like fish. Anyway, IT WAS THE BEST DAY BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last week I did an awesome camp called ID Tech. It was held at Stanford University, so there was a lot of space. Also, lunch was in the Stanford Dining Hall, so the food was awesome. Plus, the course I was doing, 3D Game Design-Racing Games, was REALLY fun. You got to create your racing track with a billion different pieces including loop-de-loops, underground sections, and epic jumps. Then you got to design your own car and race it on the track you built. Another awesome thing about the camp was that every week they have a different theme, and this week was Star Wars week. So my counselor was the Sith lord Darth Drowsy, although everyone calls him Sleepy. He taught me A LOT of things about Star Wars, such has who was the first Sith lord. And ANOTHER awesome thing about the camp is that throughout the camp you collect tickets for doing good things, and then at the end of the week there's a raffle, and two of the prizes are that you can pie or dunk any counselor you want! This camp was actually my favorite camp ever.

I'm sorry that I haven't made a blog post in so long. I have done so much over the days. I will catch you up.
Then on Thursday, I went to the Burlingame Museum of PEZ Memorabilia. Now I know what your thinking. And yes, it is a museum dedicated to PEZ (the candy), and also Legos and banned toys. According to the museum, the show Teletubbies was banned because parents thought they heard the characters saying inappropriate things like "bite my butt". The place was also home to the world's largest PEZ dispenser, seen to the left.
On Friday, I went to Muir Woods National Monument, home to a whole lot of redwood trees. I went on a hike that was very uphill, but when I got to the top, the view was AWESOME. I also got a junior ranger badge and a national parks passport.
Also, on Saturday, I went to the San Francisco Zoo. Personally, I liked it better than the Bronx Zoo, because it had more AND better animals. It also had a fun playground.
Today I officially moved to California. I am currently living in a temporary apartment in Palo Alto. I miss New York already, but I am also slowly starting to like California.
