So this post is probably gonna be pretty short because
1) I have the worst headache and my throat hurts pretty bad too and I just wanna sleep
2) I've been doing homework literally ALL DAY aka writing stuff, so I'm not super excited to write even more now if you know what I'm saying. This was my week:
Monday: I wore my 5SOS-hoodie to school and some people said stuff like "oh I really like your hoodie" and "are you a fan of 5sos? me too!". That was fun. In the afternoon we had cheer and our coach was pretty angry with us for several reasons and that was less fun.
Tuesday: All the other grades had the testing thing again so the seniors had ties and the counselors talked about college and stuff in the auditorium. Since I'm not going to college in the US it was pretty unnecessary for me, but it's kinda interesting to know what it's like applying to college in the states. It also inspired me to study after high school haha. But that's a later problem. In the afternoon we had tumbling practice.
Wednesday: Kierstin stayed and practiced with the JV cheer team after school, so I had no ride home. I got to ride the school bus for the first time and that was an experience. It was a typical American yellow school bus and it stopped like almost right outside of people's houses, which the bus does not do in Sweden (sincerely someone who lives 6 km from the closest bus stop in Sweden). And from what I understood, I'm not sure though, people raise their hands when they want the bus to stop. That's pretty cool.
Thursday: We had cheer in the afternoon and we started with a dance for the home coming assembly where we're going to perform. The dance was fun and I'm excited to perform it!
Friday: We had our first home game, and this game was the most fun so far! In the first quarter kids from the clinic last week was there and cheered too, and that was less fun because then we had to focus on the kids and not ourselves. But after they left it was really fun! It was so cool because since it was a home game the marching band from our school played at the game and they were so good! And then there was a looooot of people watching the game and that was really fun too! And it was just overall a really fun game. And also this game had like a "honor the veterans"-theme which also felt very American. The band played songs for the different branches of the military(?) and then people who are/ have been in the military stood up while everyone else was sitting and that was really cool. It gave me a bigger understanding of how much Americans value their military and veterans etc. and that's really different from Sweden. I don't really remember who we played (maybe Haslett or something?) but we won 41-6 which means that we're undefeated so far! I really wish I could have taken pictures during this game, it felt sooo American and so cool, but since I was cheering that was impossible.
Saturday: We went to a Junior Bulldogs football game where Gianna (youngest host sister) cheered. In the middle of the game one of the players in the other team broke his leg and I think he passed out and that was kinda scary. The ambulance came and everything. I really hope everything went well with him! Also we had Panda for lunch and then pizza for dinner and omg the crust of the pizza was so good.
Sunday: I've just been chilling and doing homework. In the morning I watched the Princess and the frog for the first time in a really long time. It's my favorite Disney princess movie and the music is so good. The rest of the day I've been doing so much homework for Spanish and Creative Writing and now I'm so tired and exhausted. As soon as I post this I'll probably fall asleep.
Also, I forgot to take "real" pictures this week so these are some of the random pictures I have from this week:
And now I'm gonna do your least favorite part but my favorite part; Song of the week. This weeks "Song of the week" is Florida Kilos by Lana Del Rey:
Also!! Don't forget to follow my exchange instagram: @ttilda_abroad . I'm kind of funny there sometimes (or at least I think I'm funny) .
That's it for this week, I'll see you next Sunday. I hope you're excited cos I sure am.
I spent like 10 minutes trying to come up with a fun way to end this post and I did not succeed. I'm so tragic. Bye.
