During Hurricane Sandy we had no power, no t.v. no water. So we had to play games, and watch movies. On Friday we went up to the country, since we had no power. I had to go down 14 flights of stairs on my butt, it was painful. We played games such as "Set" and "Hedbandz." We also watched movies such as "17 again" and "Just Go With It." Then later on in the evening, I watched "The Cosby Show." My mom would put some candles in my room since we had no power. In order for us to watch movies my parents had to go over and charge my dvd player and my cell phone. I don't want it to happen ever again. In the picture below, you can see me with Yelena watching a movie.
On Election Day, I went downstairs with my mom and Yelena to vote. I voted by touch screen instead of going into the booth and having to do it by hand. I didn't have to wait in line, because I was in my wheelchair. I voted for Obama, and I'm so happy that he is president again. He's a good president because he supports people with or disabilities. He has helped many others as well. Hopefully he will continue helping the citizens of the United States.
One of my favorite things that I did in Maine was going to a movie theater called Reel Pizza that serves pizza during the movie, and when your pizza is ready they will flash your number on a bingo board. There is also an intermission during the movie, so you can go to the bathroom or stretch your legs. We saw a movie about mystery and adventure.
Two days ago Kate and I went to the Met to see this really cool sculpture on top of the roof. Cloud City is the name of the sculpture. Tomas Saraceno is the artist who made the structure. I liked the color of the sculpture because it was dark blue, which is one of my favorite colors.
One Saturday night with the JCC, we went to a restaurant called Big Daddy's and I had three little cheeseburgers. Then afterwards we went to The Met and looked at the Matisse exhibit, which was a lot of fun.
This past Sunday my parakeet Charlie passed away who I had for 10 years. We went to The Hudson River where we put him in the water to lay him down to rest. We loved to watch the same movies and t.v. shows. He liked to sing and we loved the same music. He was a great bird and we will all miss him.
This past Saturday I went bowling with the Jcc, and got 4 spares in a row, which had never happened to me before. I couldn't believe that it happened. I got the highest score and beat everyone in the second game.
A couple weekends ago we had a date night at the Jcc. Lauren and I were in charge of making the salad. We also made masks for our guests and Amanda was my guest. After we had dinner, we had a dance party and they played all my favorite songs, which was so awesome. Then after that, Jcc had a karaoke party, and I sang my new favorite song called This is Me from the Disney Movie Camp Rock and Steffi said that I have a good singing voice. Camp Rock is my new favorite movie, but Maya doesn't like it.
