About the Blogger
I am 11 years old and in 5C. My favorite show is Scrubs. I was born in 1996 and for some reason I am still in fifth grade. I've been living in Beirut since 2005, which is 3 years. I used to live in Saida and I still go there every week. I miss living there and the worse part is that all my relatives live there, and I barely see them.
