TGIF!!! today was an okay, normal, nothing special friday..but i liked it! i will start by sharing a picture of me wednesday night at my host mom's band practice..i'm sorry i didn't share it earlier, but at least i didn't forget totally!:
anyways, school was painfully boring today. our schedule changed and now i have FRENCH on friday mornings, and the whole time we were there the teacher spoke french. i'm sorry but i don't know dutch, let alone french. to make matters more complicated sometime after french i had german, so i just went to the library. while in the library i returned my checked out copy of J.D. Salinger's "Catcher In The Rye"(which i read in about 4 school days), checked out "The Great Gatsby" and then proceeded to take a nice calm nap. I must mention that the bell at school is not a buzz, a ring, or a humming sound. it is a pleasant 4-toned "dum dum dum dum" sound that is really nice to hear when you wake up from your nap in the library! anyways..after lunch we had gym class, which of course i was dreading! we had to run really far of course and i didn't like it. the only thing pushing me through that class was the fact that i didn't have to be with the other foreign exchange student for two whole hours...you have no idea how much faster i ran when i thought about that! then we had geography and school was done. after school on fridays some of the people in music (all grades) go to the irish pub..so i went with a couple of my friends and had a cherry beer, ha ha! :)..then i came home, looked at some boots online and then my host brother and i biked to the FRITUUR since it is junk food friday. keep in mind the frituur is the place that fries everything, so this is what i ate:
it was a "small" thing of french fries (you should see the big one!), and a bunch of random fried balls! one was cheese, a few chicken, a couple with noodles in them, things like that. isn't belgium fun? and now i am getting ready to go to bed, because i have to be at the train station around 6:30 tomorrow morning..there is a big rotary student event in the south of belgium! thanks for reading and talk to you tomorrow!
