I have celebrated my first thanksgiving! It was fun! Me and my host family, their daughter and her husband, and my friends Grace went to the Smokey Mountains (in Tennessee) to celebrate! We rent a cabin (the view was beautiful!) and had thanksgiving there! We cooked all the food there, played some games and just had a great day :). The day after we went hiking and did some shopping since it was Black Friday and the next morning we were headed home again :). Such a great first last thanksgiving :D
Some friends and I went to a NFL-game as well! It was Colts vs Titans but the Colts lost :( But it was fun anyway! We got free face painting and some free flag thing. I don't really know what to call it haha. However, it was a good day :).
It was the senior trip too! All the seniors (that signed up for it)?and some teachers went to Disneyworld! It was so fun! We flew there (to Florida) but it was just a two hours flight so it wasn't too bad. It was quite a few people who never had flew before and I know that's not like weird or strange or wrong or uncommon or something else, but since I have flew so many times it felt a little bit weird. Don't get me wrong! It's not weird, it just felt so. Do you understand what I'm saying? It's hard to explain haha. But some time is gonna have to be the first time, right? Anyway, it was so nice down there. I wasn't freezing. It was hot. Sooo nice. I love summer. I mean it isn't summer in Florida but it feels like summer soooo almost the same thing. Same same but different ;)
Kaity, Vivie, Vanessa and I shared a room (we were staying at Disney Movie Resort!) and our suitcases didn't show up until like 1 am so we didn't get so much sleep :(. But that's okay because we were at Disneyworld! The first day we spent at the park Epcot (Disneyworld has many parks and not just one) and that was great! At the evening some of us went to Mickey's very merry Christmas party! It was at Magic Kingdom (another park) and only people with special tickets could go so it wasn't as many people there as it usually are. We rode a lot of rides! And there was fireworks at the evening and it was sooo pretty! The second day we spent at Magic Kingdom too so we had enough time to try all the rides :). My favorite ones were Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and (don't judge me!) the Winnie the Pooh ride! The third day we went to Hollywood Studios and to Disney Springs! It was such a great trip and so glad I went to it! But it was nice coming home too and sleep in my own bed. :)
Yesterday Grace had a Christmas party and that was fun! Me and Vivie won the Christmas sweater contest (but we didn't get a prize :( ) and we also won, in a different contest, a Starbucks gift card together! So me and Vivie are heading to Starbucks sometime soon haha. We all went to see the Christmas lights as well! It was pretty but it was so cold but we got free hot chocolate so that was nice.
Today my host family and I went to Carmel to celebrate Lucia! (A Swedish tradition/holiday). It was a lot of Swedish people there and I talked some Swedish but it felt so weird speaking it haha! I'm starting to drop some Swedish words and I just wanna say them in English instead haha. Anyway it was nice to celebrate Lucia here too even though the kids lost the lyrics sometime haha. They were very cute! And we got fika after so that was nice too.
By the way the drama club performance is getting closer! Not even a week. I'm not a very good actor but I'm still looking forward to it haha. It's gonna be fun!
Thanksgiving and the Great Smokey Mountains! Such a great weekend!
