In general, I wasn’t surprised to see the result of the test, because I usually prefer to stay away from publicly campaign and choose to do little actions myself. I tend to observation of the events and it takes some time for me to analyze them and to come to my own conclusion.

The fact that I’m 81% Democrat made me a little anxious, as I thought that Republicans’ philosophy is closer to me… It was hard to answer the questions of the test as an American person, because I have never been to the USA and it was hard even to imagine myself an American. Anyway, now I know myself a bit better and I’m looking forward to learning more about differences between two parties. Who knows, maybe my position will change over time again.

Hello! I’m reading an autobiographical book “I’m Malala” about an ordinary Pakistanian girl and her tough life path. This book makes me think a lot and appreciate things that I have in my life now, but I will talk about my impressions later. Now I would like to share some new words from this book:

  1. Pious-devoutly religious
  2. Blasphemy-the action or offence of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk
  3. Double-jointed-flexible
  4. A gnawing feeling-persistently worrying or distressing feeling
  5. To be drenched in shame- to fill or cover completely as if by soaking in shame

Hello! My name is Michelle, I’m 7 and I’m from France, but in the new country I’ll probably be called Michael. We finally make it! We crossed the ocean! We’re completely exhausted after such a long trip, but very delighted. My parents were really poor in France, we lost all our relatives because of plague and we had nothing to lose there, so my parents decided to start a new life here… Of course I’ll miss my home country but I feel extremely excited to live in America. I think everything will be different here: new friends, new nature, new food, new climate. I don’t know what will my parents do for a living, but I’m sure we’ll be happy and successful here.

Well, to be honest, I think I could do better. I was distracted by timer and was sure that I won’t manage to complete all the tasks in 40 minutes and will found myself kicked out of the test. Anyway, practice makes perfect, so I think I should start taking such tests at least once a week.
