I am both excited and worried as I stare at the dreaded ship that will take me away from home. I am excited about having a whole new life, and I am worried about the new land and the boat ride, maybe there will be big storms of waves, maybe I will get seasick, there might not be room to sleep. I will feel bored because there is nothing to do on the boat. The new world might be a great adventure for me. I will make fur into leather and trade with tailors and shoemakers. My fears will be that I can't communicate with other people, and don't know where to go. I am moving because I want a better life and more freedom. When I meet people that didn't think, act or think the same as I do, then I will quickly learn the language, so I will be able to communicate will other people, and trade different stuff with them. I will have to live near a stream because I need lots of water. I will bring my 50 US dollars and tannic acid, to make leather.
I am feeling homesick and very bored on the boat. There are people dieing and people getting sick. There is enough food for everyone, and there are enough supplies too, but it is very crowded and not enough place for people to sleep.There is nothing to do and everyone just walk around, eat and sleep. There were a few storms, and there were big huge waves. The boat was swaying from side to side, and a lot of people get sea sick, and some died from the storms. We get squished when we sleep. I hope there will be enough food for everyone so we can survive the whole journey.
Finally we see land! Sometimes I could not find a place to sleep because there are lots of people talking and chatting the whole time. I was pretty happy on the ship because I met a Tailor. Her name is Penelope Wade, she is very nice, and we talked every hour,day and night. As we reached the New World, I was not sure where I was going, and didn't know how to communicate with the Native Americans. We arrived in Autumn, and I am doing my job so I can trade with other people for different stuff that I need to survive.
I have a very small place to live, but I have enough food to eat. The food is a bit different than England's, but I am getting used to it. The challenges I had to face was not being able to communicate with other people, and it was hard to trade stuff with other people, but now I know a little bit of their language and it is much easier to trade with them now. Business is doing very well, I trade a lot with the Tailor and the Shoemaker, because they use leather to make shoes and cloths.
Business is getting better and better. I feel that I have made the right choice to come to the New World, because here I can have my own house and have my own business. The new problem is that it is hard to find fur, and that means that I can't make more and more leather. Fortunately, I still can get a little bit of animal fur, and the things I have is enough for me to survive.
I have to make leather and I have to trade everyday too. I don't really meet any Native Americans, because I work at home inside the house. I don't go outside often, so I don't really meet any people except the people I have to trade stuff with. Business is going great. I think that Eldorado is the perfect colony for ME.
