One Hundred Percent!

Today was the day of my math test.  In the morning, my parents went out boating while I completed the twenty problem exam.  I was going for one hundred percent.  I decided to stick my nose into it and focus.  I double checked each problem carefully and finished my test right before my parents came back.  My dad and I quickly graded it.  One hundred percent!  I had aced my test!  As a special treat, my mom said I could decide what we would do for the rest of the day.  I chose to sit in the van and play computer games.  My mom did not see that one coming, but could not take back what she said.  
Tonight, I will choose to go out for a pizza dinner.  I wonder why I haven’t thought of focusing before...  It’s good to be king!  
Tomorrow, I will start a five day kayaking kid’s camp.  This one will have a larger variety of kids at different skill levels.  The course was originally just for local kids from Murchison, but now has become open to other New Zealanders.  I am an exception.  I am excited to go kayaking again!
Thank you for reading Rohan Geographic!   


  1. Congrats on acing your test and great that you learned the secret of focusing (actually I guess the real secret is figuring out how to focus!). Have fun at the kayaking camp -- sounds like it will be a great time.

  2. Hi Rohan,
    I'm adding my congratulations to those of Peter's. Focusing is easy for me when I'm doing something I like, but not easy if I would rather be doing something else at that time.

    Just now I'm having a glass of vine while Debbie fixes dinner. I noted that the wine is from Blenheim, NZ. Do you know where that is? I like this Brancott Savignon Blanc and want to focus on it rather than help with dinner.

    1. I have been to Blenheim and the picture of the beach on the Murchison or Bust blog is from there. I also remember driving past the vineyards somewhere in that area.....
