hello all! well today is monday, which just sets itself up for failure..but after lots of ricola's and really bad cough syrup i'm still alive! turns out they really do put more sugar in everything in the USA, horrid cough medicine! the only notable thing about school today was english class. seems like i ALWAYS have something to say about english class. you will absolutely NEVER believe what the subject in english class was today. it was all over the movie "supersize me" which if you've never seen it or heard of it, consider yourself lucky-or you just live in a cave. this guy eats mcdonalds for every meal for a month, and its absolutely disgusting but makes you want a cheeseburger at the same time. in the end he ends up gaining lots of weight and getting almost addicted to the food there. its a horrible depiction of the american eating styles, which of course is super awkward for me to sit there and be asked questions about how it really is or my opinion on the movie. there's nothing much to say to defend ourselves, and not like i had to be defensive or anything but yet again i question the motives of the lesson plan. why is it that learning about obesity in america comes before pronunciation and basic, practical grammatical exercises? i will never understand that, never! but like i said, at the same time i wanted to go out and eat a cheeseburger..good thing the mcdonalds opens in Turnhout (my town) sometime in march..hahah reason for celebration right? not! speaking of which, french fries and hamburgers tonight for dinner, along with fabulous upside down apple pie, only i have the name wrong about that, but nonetheless...i have to be on the easiest diet ever. kilo's are staying on at this rate. sooo that's about all for today. here's the picture i promised you a couple days ago! my amazing host family number two.. :)

goodnight all!
