so ist das Leben.

und es ist schön.

I'm going to really start trying to update this on Sundays from now on, because I've discovered that people read it. That's so cool, all this time I thought I was talking to myself :P

Anyways, a week in review..

Monday I had school as usual. I can't remember doing anything specifically special. So we'll leave that day at that.

Tuesday I had school again. Still usual. I also went exercising with my host mom after school. We go to a community center in a neighboring village and do random things in a group. Yoga, stretching, really random half dance things. It's exercise though, and that's wichtig. 

Wednesday I had school again. After that, I picked up Andy at the Bahnhof. Then we went home and hung around for the day. He met my host parents and what not. It was nice.

Thursday I went to school from the until noon. Normally on Thursday I have no school in the afternoon, but today I had a Themanachmittag. This is when the school takes two subjects and you do a project between the two, integrated. My class has Geography and Art. However, I did not attend this because I had a "headache" and went home. We ate lunch and then went to the Hoher Kasten. It's a mountain close to here, and it's beautiful. We rode up the mountain, drank Kaffee and ate Biberlis. Kaffee is coffee. Literally translated a Biberli is baby beaver, but it's actually a little cake that almost tastes like gingerbread. After that we walked down the mountain. Or we ran, depending on your nationality. It was really difficult for me to walk downhill in the snow. I've never learned how to walk in the snow. It was really beautiful though. That night, we had champange fondue. Melted, delicious cheese with bread. <3. And if you drop your bread in the fondue pot, you have to do something. Maybe run around barefoot in the snow, or do the dishes. It depends from family to family.

Friday we went to Winterthur, a city 20 km away. We walked around, had a quasi pic nic, filled with müesli, rivella, gipfeli, brötli, and schoggi. Then we went to the movies and saw the social network, in German. The movie theather had around 12 theaters, but each only seated 40 people! IT WAS SO TINY. The movie was good, but it costed CHF 18.- a person. Willkommen in der Schweiz. 

Saturday we went on a mini hike in my town. We tried to find a tower but got lost. It was still was beautiful. There's actually fall here. The leaves are all yellow and orange, and it's COLD. But I love in none the less.

That's all for now, sorry there's no pictures. It doesn't work for some reason. You can always look at them on facebook. :)

Auf Wiedersehen alle miteinander.

  1. I saw a creative writing heffa in you on this blog. A part of you that I never knew.
    I was drawn to your descriptions and I could actually imagine what you saw and experienced. I even felt the chill of the snow. Admittedly I felt jealous when you described your journeys with your host mom. A good kind of jealousy though.
    I love you miss Mary-Allison . Let's take some time just being friends when you come home. We can also talk about the adventures that you and I had when you were younger.
