Hey everyone, Angelica here! Today was quite the eventful day in the lair. As the newest addition to this crazy family of mutant turtles, every day is a new adventure for me.

I woke up early this morning to the sound of Mikey blasting his music in the common area. I groaned and rolled out of bed, making my way downstairs to join him for breakfast. Mikey greeted me with a big grin and handed me a plate of pancakes he had made (with extra syrup, just how I like it).

After breakfast, Leo called us all together for our daily training session. Splinter was there overseeing everything as usual, offering words of wisdom and guidance as we practiced our moves. It's tough keeping up with these guys sometimes - they're so skilled and agile!

Raph challenged me to a sparring match afterwards, which I gladly accepted. He's always pushing me to be better and stronger, even if he does have a bit of an attitude problem at times.

Donnie spent most of the day working on his latest invention in his lab while April came by to hang out with us after school. She brought pizza (of course) and we all settled down for some well-deserved relaxation time.

As night fell over New York City, we gathered around Master Splinter as he told us stories from his past adventures with Hamato Yoshi. It's moments like these that make me feel truly grateful to be part of this family - they may be mutants but they have hearts bigger than anyone I've ever known.

And now here I am writing this diary entry before heading off to bed myself. Another day full of excitement and laughter has come to an end but I know tomorrow will bring even more surprises along with it.

Until next time, Angelica
