Hi, hi, hi today, space taxi, to the skyyyy :D
Let's write about my second week. Wow, it's not so long since I'm here, but I really feel at home here. And it's only about 18 weeks until I come back to Germany!
My week was not something special, I live my everyday life here:
School was ok, but I had to do some homework at home! That's very unusual, because I usually finish all my homework at school. My band teacher was not in school, so the lesson was kind of chaotic. But here you can't go at home when a teacher isn't there, they always have a substitute teacher, and that's why lessons never "fall out".
It was Valentine's Day, but well....I was in Canada and not in Germany, so it was just another ordinary Tuesday. I had TA meeting today, which means that all the lessons are a bit shorter, so they can make an extra slot where you go to your homeroom and your teacher advisor. They full-year students got their report cards and Ms Okano, my teacher advisor, told us something about the rules and a field trip. At home I got some chocolate from my host mother, you can see it in the picture below :) I was really happy about that!
We had Early Dismissal on this day, because there was a staff meeting in the afternoon, so all lessons are a bit shorter and you can go home earlier :) So Wednesday was kind of relaxed.
Today my Spanish teacher was not available, so we could work on our own and learn the vocabulary. Choir was really funny, because we practised OH YEAH and CHANGE with gospel voice, and we had to scream and so on...it was fun :D And English was also very interesting, because we talked about moral dilemmas (which menas: what is right? what is wrong? kind of philosophy), I realy liked that. In my spare lessons I went to Safeway (supermarket) with Angie to buy a birthday present for my host sister and some pencils. And back in school I talked with the vice principal oO He is nice, and I didn't do anything wrong...but...long story!
School was ok, I was late for Math, but however (well, not really late, but just on time :D). We wrote an open-book test in Math, and it was really easy! And next in Spanisch...we wrote a vocabulary test! But it wasn't too difficult, we just had to describe a picture. But I figured out that I have to do oral exams in Spanisch in March...I'm a bit scared, because I can't talk really good in Spanish. Because it was my host sister's birthday, we had tacos for supper and cake. Yummie!
On Saturday (yesterday) we went to the Manitoba Museum. It's about the history of Manitoba, but also a bit about geology and so on. I enjoyed it :) We also went to the planetarium, which is connected to the museum, and had a look into the Manitoba sky at night. I like planetariums :) We ordered pizza for supper, it was reeeeally good!
Well, that was my week. For some reason I don't like this entry, the English isn't good, it sounds strange...well.
Have a great week
