My host mom woke me up. With a bowl full of Trix. Breakfast in bed....ay dios mio! jaja it was kind of weird.
Then.....school. We had English first, and I was really excited because, obviously, I speak English. But...it was a nothing class. They´re doing yet another somethingorother about their trip to Italy. Italian....was a joke. I don´t think we did anything in that class either. The teacher really had no control over the class at all.
Math. It was horrible. He wrote some problems on the board, and clearly this math class was more advanced than anything I´ve ever taken. I had no idea what was going on, and everything was in Spanish. The teacher realized I didn´t know what was going on, and tried to explain it to me, but I didn´t get it. I just kind of nodded and sat there the whole class, trying to think of anything I had ever learned that was remotely like what was on my paper. I couldn´t. He collected work from the other students, but not me. I think he understands that I don´t understand. Which is nice.
Chemistry. Well. I had been warned about this teacher from several girls because apparently, he takes an interest in girls in the class. I sat in the back of the room with two boys who are sooo nice and quite entertaining. I could almost understand what he was talking about, but not really. He came over to me and asked me questions about who I was, and told some kid that ventana means window in English. It was really strange. I don´t like him. By the end of the class I realized that we´re doing stuff I learned Freshman year....if I only I could remember it. I kind of do, but not really. oops.
Art. Art as my elective, we drew what she put in the front of the room. You don´t even have to try here, it´s kind of sad. Art as a class, I thinkthinkthink he wanted us to draw some block thing....but I didn´t. I sat with a group of kids and we listened to music and played games like Tic Tac Toe and Hangman in English and Spanish. It was sooooo much fun. And today we got out at 3.15!! yay! And I don´t have school until Wednesday. Some holiday or something.
When I first got here, I was told about a Rotary meeting tonight. But no one has said anything to me about it....and I don´t really know what´s going on, so I guess I´m not going to it. I guess there´s always next week....? I think that´s better though, because hopefully my Spanish will be better by then anyways.
So tonight.....I´m not doing anything I guess. Watching TV? No sè. But tomorrow I think I´m going out with Gabi and her friends....and I think we´re going camping at a beach on Sunday....? Sounds like fun.
So. Yeah. that was my day. Exciting, huh?
Love and miss you all!!
