09/16 one of the best days so far.
Our Homecoming Dance was on that day and I was so excited! Every exchange student is looking forward to Homecoming because we don’t have something like that in Germany and I don’t understand why ?! It’s just awesome. I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to go to Homecoming. It’s a school dance for all grades.
My day started at 9 a.m. I woke up and took a shower. I had to dry my hair because later we had an appointment at a salon to have our hair done. I had breakfast and prepared all the stuff I’m going to wear. Sophie did prepared her make up so that Kirsten could do her eye make up after we come back. At 1 p.m. we had our appointment and Sophie started. During that time Susan helped me with my nails. I chose a blue color for my nails. After Sophie finished it was my turn and Sophie got some sandwiches for us. We had a lot of fun there. We were in Troy and there were also other girls that had Homecoming that day. We talked a lot with them.
Here you can see how my hair looked like:
After that we drove home and I prepared my make up while Kirsten was doing Sophie’s. She finished Sophie’s make up and then it was my turn. She did a good job.
Usually you meet with some friends (or your date) to take some pictures at a special location but we didn’t have time for that so we took pictures in front of our house.
Here is one of it:
After taking the pictures some of our friends arrived at our home. They looked beautiful! So we had dinner all together. We had a tent in the back yard where we could all sit together. Everybody brought some food to eat and it was delicious. Before we left we played a game all together and that was fun too. We all drove to the school and there was already a long line. So we were standing there for a few minutes and took again some pictures:
The dance place was in the gym and the room was dark when we entered. The DJ was playing nice music and we all started to dance. We danced a lot that evening. I had to take my high heels off after 30 minutes. We danced in big groups and also got some opportunities to dance with a partner. I had a slow dance with a boy and I will never forget that even though it was just for a few seconds. I met a lot of friends and they all looked great! The time was over so fast what made me really sad. After the dance I had to stay a bit longer because Sophie had to help to clean up. Sarah invited us to her house so we changed our clothes and stayed for a bit at her house. We had a bonfire, danced and laughed a lot. I met a lot of people that are now good friends. It was a very fun evening and as I said I really miss it. I’m so thankful that I had the opportunity to spend that day with my friends.
