Hi,

Death Valley was amazing. It’s on the border of California and it didn’t took too long to get there. Death Valley is a National Park and it is also known as the hottest place on earth, lowest point of North America. That place had lots of cool and unique stuff. I was there with other exchange students and we drove with the Van from place to place and the nature just looks so cool and it seems like every stop looks different. There were sand dunes, mountains, a surface covered with salt and in the very last stop we were on Dante’s View and from there we had such a pretty view over Death Valley and it just looked so pretty. We stayed over night and overall it was a successful trip.

Dodgeball is in german “Völkerball” and people could group up in a group of 6 people 3 girls and 3 boys and play against the other teams. I grouped up with people and that’s been a fast game. I wasn’t even 4 seconds on the field and I was out and we played against like the most athletic people in school and lost. Then we were out. Everyone gets only one chance to play, so that was fun lol. We all walked home as a team to Wesleys to get a drink.

Reverse

Reverse was a week ago and it has been interesting for sure. Reverse is like Sadie Hawkins and it’s basically like Homecoming. The only difference is, that you don’t have to wear fancy dresses and that the girls ask the boys on a date and not the boys ask the girls. And it is kind of a big thing here. But just here in this town they said lol. So the girls start thinking about Reverse like 2 months before and they have to call the boys’s parents first to reserve them. RESERVE and not REVERSE. I got hecka confused in the beginning, because people were talking about reverse and reserve and I was just like whaaaaaat. Anyways. Girls ask the parents, if we can take the boys out on the Reverse Date and then we RESERVE them. So if any other girl, asks the parents, if they can go out with that boy, the parents can say, that someone else asked that boy already. But the boys aren’t suppose to know about it. I hope it makes sense lol. Anyways. I reserved him. I called at his house and guess what… the boy who I asked picked up the phone. And srsly I feel like only these things happen to me, but that’s not the only the fail moment, that happened to me for Reverse. So he picked up the phone and I don’t think, that he recognized my voice and I asked, if I can talk to his mom and when I thought, that he already passed the phone, I said “Hello, this is Michelle”. But nope. Ethan (the boy) was still on the phone and that was hecka embarrassing lol. From that moment he knew, that I am asking his mom to go on a date with him. So that’s cool…… notttt….. I talked to his mom and she said, that it is fine. Reverse was on the March 3rd-4th is Reverse. So I got enough time to think about how to ask him on a creative way. I asked a month before Reverse and I created a playlist with songs, that we both like. Ethan and I have like the same music taste, which is hecka cool and out of these songs I highlighted the letters, that form the questions “Do u want 2 go to rvrse w me?” and I made the CD cover pretty. When I was done with the CD, my host mom drove me to his house and I dropped it off on his front porch. The next day, Ethan told me, that he was so excited and then I got hecka excited too and it was just so sweeeet and I really looked forward for Reverse. Well… then Valentine’s Day came and I found out, that a day before he is in a relationship with an another girl like whaaaaat. Fail moment #2. And he brought roses and chocolate to her and it was hecka cute. So things got awkward between Ethan and me. I wasn’t jealous. I was happy for him, but now he is in a relationship with that one girl and I asked him on a date lol. My life is so ironic lol. But I was so happy for him lol. I just died laughing inside, thinking how single like a pringle I am lol. In lunch I hung out with them sometime and she doesn’t seem to like me, but oh well. Ethan said, that he still goes with me on a date, so everything is good. OH, so for Reverse the girls buy matching T-Shirts for each other and there is going to be a King and Queen for having the best T Shirts too. So I bought a T Shirts with a Wolf on it, bc his spirit animal is wolf and guess what. The next day, he walked into class with the SAME FRIGGIN SHIRTTTTT. Fail #3. I DIED INSIDE LAUGHING. Srsly I was dead hahhahahahha. I told him and he laughed too. So I bought a different shirt and I like it. Reverse is on the 3rd till 4th. The dance is on Friday night, the 3rd and the date is on the 4th. A week before Ethan answered to the CD in a creative way back. So on that day, we had the Dodgeball Tournament (I’ll write a post about it later) and I was walking home with the Team and when I got home, I was home, I didn’t noticed anything. And then when I turnt to my bed, I looked on the floor and screamed. I WAS SO HAPPY. I thought he won’t answer me back, bc of his girlfriend, but I screamed, walking outside, telling my host fam, that Ethan said Yes. I didn’t even read what he wrote on the poster, but I just saw Yes. I was hecka excited lol. The Reverse dance was hecka awkward in the beginning, because literally NO. ONE. was dancing. It’s been literally the longest 20 minutes I ever felt. The music was so loud and bad and we couldn’t really communicate, because it is so loud. We just stood there, look around were shouting, if we had to say something. Ethan and I were alright. We danced a little, but not really DANCING. Then there was a slow song coming up and before the dance, I was worrying with who I can dance, because I am not sure, if his girlfriend would be happy, if she sees us two dancing a slow dance and I didn’t even know, if she was even there. But surprisingly he asked me, if he can dance with me right away and it was hecka cute. He did the gentlemen hand u wanna dance with me gesture and I did the same thing and said, I would love to. We danced waltz and were singing to the song, that came up and it was hecka fun. Then I was in a such a good dance mood and it wasn’t too awkward. It was so much fun and I just love dances. After the dance we watched a movie at Miranda’s house with other “couples”. There was food and we watched “Napoleon Dynamite”. We took the boys home at midnight and I stayed at Miranda’s and Kaitlee stayed there too. We were up till 2 and talked. In the morning we woke up at 7:30 and head to Kaitlee’s house and prepared the breakfast we planned with the boys. And Kaitlee had 2 Hover Boards like whaaaat. It’s not too hard to drive, u just need the balance. We had Crepes and fruits and it was so goooood. Then we did a Picture Scavenger Hunt with the other couples and we did it in the neighborhood and it was really fun. Then we all got home and got to rest. At 6:30 we went out to eat and it was hecka good. Then we went to Walmart and tried to get kicked out. We were driving around with bikes and were hanging around in the kids section lol. We got yelled at and stopped lol. It was fun though. Then we went bowling and were in the arcade and got to get prices. We both got tattoos. I got a Thor Tattoo and he got an Iron Man and we got candy and that’s it. And that was Reverse. It’s been a fun time, even though it was a little stressful with the planning before, but end up really fun! I enjoyed it and see ya later alligator.

Hi,

It's been a while since the dance revue, but once a year the dancers have a performance night, where they show all the dances they did over the year. In the end the girls danced with their escorts a slow dance and it was the cutest thing. No joke. I could watch them for hours and not get tired of them. And the gym had so pretty decorations and it was just hecka cute. Some of my friends were there and they all looked so pretty. The girls were in beautiful long dresses and it was a night to remember.

Every Sunday I have 3 hours of LDS/Mormon church. We used to have it at 9 am, but since the beginning of the church we have a new schedule and now our church is at 1 pm, which is kinda shitty, because that's my time to nap and now I can't do it. First hour and church is sacrament meeting. People are giving speeches and after that we have Sunday school, where we are getting in classes. I used to be with the Miamaids (14-15 year olds), but since I turnt 16, I changed into the 16-18 year olds. Sometimes they give us candy and that is literally the best part of Sunday school. I surely get tired sometimes, but sometimes they talking good stuff and we talk about how to behave in seperate situations and it inspires me once in a while. At the 3rd hour we have young women's. I have Sunday school and young women's with the people that I go to school with. Not all of them but most of them.

Every Wednesday we have Mutual. Mutual is at 7 and we do something with our church class or young womens. Last time we did service in Vegas in a soup kitchen. We helped out at a place, where homeless people go to get dinner. We filled up water, being cups and help anywhere we can. It's been a fun and good night. I liked helping out. 

Or for example last time we burnt all the Christmas trees outside, so we had a big fireplace and got donuts and hot coco. And there were fireworks too. And that's also one cool thing about the US. You can start fireworks any time you want so that's cool.

Hi,

So I'm doing flag football for quite a while. 2 months I guess and I never did a blog post, so here it is. In the beginning it was kinda hard to understand how flag football works, but time after time it made more sense and i love my team. I'm in the freshmen team and i love these girls. They're so funny. We got to play against Vegas schools and one in mesquite and we won 2 times out of 7 or more probably, but I wouldn't say that we're bad. We always give our best and the team spirit is always there. At away games the JV teams starts first and then varsity plays and then freshmen plays at last at 6. We always wait like 3-4 hours and it is always freezing. But yesterday when we played against virgin valley it was actually really nice and sunny. The good part of playing at last is, that we can watch the sun set and it always looks so pretty. We mostly just hang out on the stands and everyone is cuddled up in blankets and then we sleep or do homework. After the games we stop somewhere to eat and then we drive back to Moapa valley. Around 9 pm I'm at home and go to bed. Ah there are about 9 people on our team and I am on defense and offense.

It was so much fun and srly I didn't even cared how I looked like while I danced like crazy. In the end we all look dumb while we're dancing, so yea... here's a picture of my bestie and me when we were cleaning up.
