Hola! Sorry I haven´t updated(brittany....).
I went to my first disco on Saturday(I think) It was sooo much fun! Dancing, and REGGAETON...haha, I loved it. I danced with some boy, Mauricio the whole night...who I´m sure only noticed me because I´m blonde..which happens a lot, but atleast I wasn´t stuck learning how to dance with people who would see me again and again, and probably remember how dorky I´m sure I looked. Whatever. It was fun.
Then....on Sunday, we went camping on the beach! Which wasn´t as warm as it sounds, because it´s winter here and it was freezing. I had long sleeves on, a sweatshirt, another sweatshirt, my fleece, and a boy named Sebástian´s sweatshirt. And I was mostly warm, but still slightly cold. jaja, who knew that Chile would actually be chilly? Anyway, it was fun. It was only the cuarto kids, the grade above me, except for me and Freja. But they´re all so nice! I wish I could switch classes....they actually seem interested in holding a conversation with me...and the tercero girls don´t seem to like me much. Whatever. Filo.
Came home from camping on a bus. Then....had almuerzo. And slept.
For 20 hours.
Oops. I guess I was really tired....that´s what happens when you only get like, 2/3 hours of sleep..you have to make up for it, right?
Didn´t have school today, or yesterday. So I just hung out. Went to the supermarcado with Gabi and my host dad to buy pan. Bread. They´re all so confused by me. They want to know what types of food I like, since I don´t seem to like everything they eat here. I don´t think they understand that it´s okay, I´m picky, not really hungry, and can survive on bread and butter, jaja. It´s so hard to try and explain myself to people who don´t speak my language!! I´m kind of hoping they´ll catch on....
I´m understanding more and more everyday. It´s actually not the understanding part I´m having problems with. I know what people are saying. I just can´t respond. I don´t know how, almost. It´s hard to explain.
In the supermarcado, we were walking out, and Gabi started laughing. When I asked why, she just said that everybody was staring at me. I try not to notice it...but I don´t think it´ll stop this whole year. La Serena is too big, if it was a little town, people would get over the fact that hey! there´s a blonde haired, blue eyed person here! But not here. Oh well.
Tomorrow is Freja´s first day of school!! yay! I´m so glad I´m not the only exchange student at my school, even though it hasn´t been that bad so far...but I don´t like being cut off from everyone else, you know? And, rumor has it that there´s another girl coming September 30th, and she´s being hosted by my Rotary club here! Which is really good,because right now I´m the only one being hosted by them. Oh, and I ended up not going to that meeting. My host mom said something about me not understanding much, so I´ll go to another one another time. Esta bien.
Anyhoo. I think it´s time to eat dinner. Well kind of. It´s not really dinner, but it´s good. So...adios
love you all!!!!!!
