Hi there :)
I don't know why this is called Awesome, but I like the word and it's also kinda awesome being here.
So, I'm supposed to tell you what I did this week :D
I had school this week as usually, but I forgot what we did :D Nothing special, I assume :D
Spanish: Got 10/10 for my assignment (with the help of some Mexicans), I had to do an oral presentation (I think I didn't do well, but the teacher liked it anyway), and I have to speak a lot, not as in Germany!
Math: Boring. Easy. I don't really like it. The teacher is the worst of all my teachers, and Math is boring because it's so easy. I will get stupid here. And fat, because I do no sports at all!
Choir: The teacher is strict, but the Choir is really good because of this. We will record the piece (written by our teacher) and we have to practise a lot.
English: I like the teacher, although the people there are....I don't know. We had to write a short story from another point of view, I wrote 7 pages handwritten and had to type it (gosh, I was so confused with the Canadian keyboard at the beginning) and it was still 3 pages, 1300 words! I'm so glad I'm done, although I'm not really happy with my story. Now we're starting Macbeth which really scares me because of the old and complicated English (it's even hard reading classic literature in German - how will it be in English?!). But today we watched only the movie :D
Band: I really like playing in the band. It's so fun and I like the teacher. But we're playing Fugue in G minor from Bach and I HAVE TO PLAY A SOLO AT THE BEGINNING! But that's kind of funny becaues the whole band claps for me when I'm finished :D We're also playing "Fantasy of Flight" from Williams, including themes from Star Wars and Harry Potter :D
So, that's what school is about.
On Friday we went to Polo Park (yeah, again), which was kind of not-so-good because I didn't had my credit card with me and I had to leave my violine in my locker durimg the weekend (ok, probably I wouldn't have practised anyway). We went to John Carter in IMAX 3D ($15!!!), but it's really good. It has something from the original 3D experience. You know, I've seen so many 3D movies now, it's not something specail anymore. But IMAX 3D is really better, sharper, more colourful and the sound is also better (and louder...). And you have to wear really big 3D glasses!
But on the way home with the bus, after we already drove half an hour and waited half an hour at the bus stop, I thought (or better: somebody told me) I was on the wrong bus. So I went out, it was 11 o'clock and the next bus home was in half an hour (and it was, of course, freezing). And no, there was no heated bus stop! So I had to call my host dad to pick me up! :D
On Sunday I went to the Forks with some internationals. The Forks is so beautiful, and the weather was really good....I was so relaxed :)
BUT to go there was a mess. I wanted to go by bus, but the bus drove by! TWO TIMES!!! So, again, my host dad had to drive me, because the next bus was in an hour... It seems busses don't like me! :P
The Forks is kind of a touristic place where you can buy souvenirs and stuff like that. And foooooooood! We had mini donuts (so good, with much sugar and fat, but still good :D) and I bought Jelly Belly and Kinder chocolate (importaded from Poland, but it's simply the best chocolate of the world! ;)).
Tomorrow we will go to a field trip to The Forks. I sucks a bit, because usually you can go ice skating there, but now the ice and snow is melting. But I'm still glad about the sun, the spring and the thaw (ok, currently it's not very nice, because it's slippery and dirty allover, but it's a sign for better times :))!
I hope you had a great week and I enjoyed my blog and the pictures. And I hope you're all fine :) I am :)
I have a video for you, I like it SO much:
Would you like to...
Have a nice day :)
EDIT: I'm sorry the video doesn't work in Germany! But I can't/don't know how to change the country in YouTube to Germany, so I don't know which videos you can watch. Anyway, just look for "Coldplay - Paradise"!
And I decided to put the spam protection for some blog entry comments on, which means you may have to put some numbers/letters in before your comment can be shown. I hate spam proctection, but it's necessary, because I get rid of alway deleting spam comments. Can you understand?
