Hello! I'm Addison Roberts and I'm 12 years old. I live on a boat with my parents and we're sailing around the world, or at least headed in that general direction, but you probably know that from the author bio on the side of the screen! So, I think you should know more about me, what lead my parents to get the boat, and preparing for our journey. You already know my name and my age, but you don't know that I have lived in a total of four states in the U.S., I was born in Illinois, moved to Mississippi when I was about 2, I moved to Virginia when I was 7, and at last, when I was 10, I was warm in Florida! Moving around from place to place made it easier to move onto a boat because I was already use to leaving places and people, though I still keep in contact with some of my friends from when I was younger. I am in seventh grade, I'm not home schooled (yet) and I don't go to public school, so how do I learn? Well, I'm taught through FLVS (Florida Virtual School), and I love it! FLVS has real teachers and I'm able to talk to them throughout the week to help me with homework, to make it even better it gives me the opportunity to skip a grade in subjects so I can "reach my full potential". Sadly, this is my first and last year with FLVS Full Time, starting next year my mom will home school me. Speaking of my parents, I think it's a good time to tell the story of when they decided to buy a boat. It all started when my dad went on a trip with my uncle on a charter sailboat to the Bahamas over 10 years ago. My dad had such a great time travelling that he somehow convinced my mom to buy a boat with him and travel the world, and that's exactly what they've done. At the moment, we are preparing to go, we are doing last minute projects, buying necessities, and preparing for "Captain Mark" to join us. Fun fact: Captain Mark was the captain of the boat my dad went on originally when he decided to buy a boat. It's funny how things come full circle, isn't it? We're in a marina right now, I've met two other boat girls here: Aeriss and Ella. There's a picture of us together to the right. Ella is on the left, Aeriss is in the middle, and I'm on the right. If you are on a mobile this will be at the top.
Aeriss has a channel on youtube, you should check it out.
