day eleven! nothing special today though, sorry! woke up, got ready, and went to a rotary meeting with all the other inbound students of our district where they explained the rules for three hours! ha ha it wasn't that exciting actually but oh well! then we had lunch there ("sandwiches" which really means bread, butter, and cheese..or something plain like that)..then came home! it was kind of a tough day today, having some spare time here is hard because i don't have any friends yet so there isn't much to do, so that makes me think too hard and start to feel isolated i guess. there comes a point when everything stops becoming cool, new, and different..and starts to become frustrating, intimidating, and confusing. but things will be fine once school starts..then i will be busy learning and meeting friends and whatnot! so my host brother and i made spaghetti tonight..it was interesting. the cooking process of everything here is so different! the ingredients are too! we tried to make brownies with an american recipe and it was terrible! the flour is all meant for bread, the sugar is superfine instead of just granulated, and the butter is no land-o-lakes here!!! so later we went to the store and i got some baking stuff that looked like it might work out, but we will see..i will experiment with chocolate chip cookies tomorrow i think. (actually chocolate chips don't exist..so cutting up a bar i guess! or maybe banana bread..thats pretty hard to mess up!) thats all for now! since theres no picture for today..heres a quote! yippee!
