I know that I had been gone more than a month but now I'm back for good! or for while. Today I clean my room and my closet because I can't clean my room for a month. After I was done with cleaning up everything, IEC came over and we hang out with us. We did a lot of chatting and talked about a lot of random things. Me and my Korean friend we make a gingerbread's house it was kinda fun and also failed at the same time, I think even a five- year old kid would have done it better. After that we started to set up the Christmas tree and decorated the tree! Some Christmas feeling in the house and it's soon December. .
Tonight I going to upload a video or a mix video that I had recored though the September and October month, just showing you guys about my life in Wisconsin. The video is not really that good cause it was filmed by my phone so it might be a bit shaky and I am not a professional at editing the movie too so it just going to be a simple video. Also me and my friend just did a "Exchange Student Tag" that video would probably be up on youtube next month. Depending on how fast I edited the video. So watch out from the video!
I have been gone for a one whole month! Well, here is a little updated about when I have been doing while I was gone. On the 14th October I went to Chicago with another exchange students. My mum drove us to our meeting place Culver, we ate, talked about what we had done during the weeks that we haven't see each other. After we finished eating we went back to car and get ready for our first road trip to Chicago. It was 2 and a half hours car drive and we were there during the weekend, it was a short unforgettable trip. First day in Chicago we just rest in the hotel some of my friends went down to pool for a night swim but I described to rest in my room because I didn't feel well. Second day in Chicago I went shopping at the Watertown I bought some clothing that I need for the upcoming winter because my mum told me that this winter going to be colder than the last year. After shopping I went to the Willis town and waited for the another group who went and explored Chicago. I went up to the top floor on the Willis town and I was a little bit disappointed because the weather wasn't on our side, it was so foggy that I can't even see the view of the whole Chicago. After that we took the bus to Navy Pier and we walked around and tried to find something to eat. We stopped and ate at Mc Donald after that we went and walked around at Pier. And me and my friends found a bubble tea shop! We also did the ice skating! Me and my friends helped a girl from Georgia learn how to skate. She was scared to death of falling but we helped me and told her that we'll catch her if she fall.
Today I woke up at a few minute before 7 a.m, the weather today is still as bad as yesterday. I got to school a few minute before the bell rang, almost late for my first class. Many students can't come to school today cause the water flood it has been raining heavy 2 days in rows so some road are closed. So today we got dismissed at 11 o'clock yeah! When I got home I realised how much water we have in our back yard. Our basement is full of water. So right now we are trying do put the sandbags around the house just for avoiding the water level. I'm not really sure if the school will be close tomorrow or not, but we'll see.
Yesterday I baked cookies for the volleyball team cause we had a volleyball game after school and we need ride the bus for 30min and I knew that everyone are hungry after school so I baked so cookies for everyone cause we need some energy before the game. During the second half of game I injured myself. What happened was I tried to save the ball so I dig and somehow I twisted my right arm. So right now I have problem with lifting my right arm and the bad thing is tomorrow I have a game and I wouldn't be able to play much cause of my injured.
Yesterday night it has been raining, thundering and lighting all night. I couldn't even sleep last night cause of the thundering and the lighting. In morning it was still raining and thundering and I didn't even want to go to school of the storm. Today at school, it went quite fast I don't know. I feel like I start to get used to the school here. But the school lunch is kinda okay, going to take with me my own lunch box next week. After the practice we went home, ate supper, played game and I just finished off my assignments. So I'm going to try to sleep while listen to the heavy rain and thundering.
Well I have no excuses for not being so active on blogging, actually I had forgot that I have blog until my friends asked me why I haven't update those day. Here is a short update about what I did yesterday. Yesterday I went to Milwaukee for my school football game it was 2 hours ride and I ended up talking a long nap. The weather was so warm and I ended up it drinking a lot of water. After the game we went to Madison to met up my host mum. We tried to find a good restaurants to eat, first we went to Texas Roadhouse but it was one hour waiting line so we went to the Red Robin. They have the best burger here!
Today I going to do a home visiting with my host mother, it gonna fun to meet my another's exchange students! I don't know when we will get home but tomorrow I have my first history test and that means study! Right now I'm working on a video. I want you show you guys my life as exchange student.
Starting my lovely Sunday with waking up around 9am and had breakfast with my family. Made my bed, clean my room and getting ready for today adventure. Today we went to the welcome orientation and it means I get to meet many other exchange students! At the orientation my IEC and my host mum went through rules and a few stuff that we need to know about. We also get to eat cakes and candy and I also met some my other friends whose I haven't met for weeks, I also met some of my friends who were at the same Camp as me in New York. We did a lot of talking like asking each other "how was the school?", " did you made any new friends" just talking about how ours exchange year went so far. We also played some volleyball and get bitten by the mosquito. On ours way home we stop by at the pizza hut and have our dinner. When we came back home we watched the Packer game and I bake a Swiss roll cake. So right now I'm doing my Spanish homework I have a presentation tomorrow and Im super nervous about it. After the homework I'm going to take shower and pack my school.
School started last week so I had been busy with school, volleyball and of course making new friends. I still try to get use to the US school, the school here isn't same as at back home. I have 7 classes and one study hall, the classes isn't 1 hour long some of them are 45min or some are 55 min. The good thing with school here is you get a free breakfast! My school day start at 7:55am to 3:29 and I have volleyball practice right after school so basically my school days end around 5:45pm every day.
9/7 was my birthday and I celebrated my sweet 18th birthday with my host family and my friends. When I was at school I delived a flower bouquet with two birthday's balloons it was from lovely my host parents. During the school day many students and my classmates congrats me and it surprise me that they knew about my birthday. During my birthday I made a lot of new friends by saying "thank" and started to make a conversation with them. After volleyball practice I went back home took a quick shower and went out and had dinner with my host parents,.
