I can’t believe it! It’s one week ago I came to Ohio. I already love it here. It was a busy week for us and I met a lot of people. On Monday school starts and of course I am very excited but also I’m a bit scared. I just hope that I find all the rooms and so on.
I’m going to give you a quick summary of the week.
Sunday: I arrived at 11:30 in Dayton, Ohio and my host family picked me up. We went to … and ate lunch. After that we drove to my new home and there I prepared my room and so on. In the evening we went to the Fair (Blogpost is coming soon) and I met some friends from Sophie.
Monday: We went to my new High school and I met my Counselor and picked my classes (Blogpost is coming soon). After that we drove back home and had some fun at home. We watched a movie and played video games. It was the first time I played PlayStation and Sophie and I finished the game. We were really proud hahaha. Also I got massured at the wall so my name is at the wall in the kitchen.
Tuesday: Me and my siblings were playing Apple to Apple. It was really funny. Someone gets a card with a word and the others have to chose a word that fits to it. First it was a bit complicated but when you got it, it is easy.
Wednesday: As always we were home and did something together. Also I skyped with my parents. First everything was nice but then I started to cry but I feel better now. In the evening we went to a soccer game from Sophie and it was nice to watch them playing. After that we were at … and ordered a Pizza. I told them my name is Amy because Yari is to hard to spell and they were just locking at me like ”You don’t look like Amy” well… ”You don’t look like you can spell my name right” I love it here hahahaha.
Thursday: We went to my new High school and I had the chance to meet my new teachers and see where I have to go. I already like my teachers. They are very friendly and some of them are very funny. For example my US history teacher. He was repeating my name every time so he could remind it. I met him like three other times and he was always saying my name. Also I like my English teacher. He was like ”We’re going to learn a lot but I will take care that we all have fun”.
Friday: Today we were at home until lunch. After Lunch we went to the work from Susan. We helped her to cut out papers. Together we cut about 900 pieces. We had fun though. After that we walked home and it was nice! Yes, it was nice to walk. Some of you know why haha. Driving car is nice, but sometimes I just need to walk haha. (When you are reading this Gettingers… I love to drive car with you!) In the evening Sophie went to the Fair but I was to tired for it so I stayed home. The sister from Susan came over with her child and we had chinese food. It was really good. After that Susan, Lucy, Will and I watched a movie – Scooby Doo – Again we had a lot of fun.
Saturday: I woke up at 9 o’clock and we went to a soccer game from Sophie near Dayton. After that we drove to … where we went shopping for HOMECOMING!!! It was so cool! We were in two stores and in the first I didn’t find something I like so went went to the second one and there I tried a lot of dresses and it was like in all the movies. I tried them on and the girls (Susan, Sophie and Lucy) told me if they liked it or not. Of course I found a beautiful dress! After that we were in a store to buy a bracelet, earrings, a ring and a small -… For Lunch we ate salad and it was really tasty. At 4 o’clock we drove back home and I felt asleep in the car. In the evening we went to the Fair. One last time… We met another exchange student from Germany and we ate a lot.
Sunday: We went to the church. It’s different than in Germany. First I was a bit scared but it was nice. The people are very friendly. After that we went back home and had to clean up the house because exchange students and their Familys were coming over. We got an orientation from our local rep and after that we talked and so on. In the evening we went to the house from a spanish exchange student and ate dinner there with his host family. We had a lot of fun and the burgers were great! In the evening I prepared my Lunch for my first day of school.
As I told you, it was a busy week!
