ein bisschen deutschh ;)
Ich kann nicht sehr gut Deutsch spreche, aber ein bisschen. Heute ich war in schule fur 5 stunden. Ich hatte ein spanisch test, das war scheisse. Ich hatte auch bio und mathe. heute abend ich war in ein “rotary meeting” in Goettingen und ich hatte gelernt “die herz, das motor, das leben.” Es war in eine krankenhaus, und ich hasse krankenhauser….. aber das ist eine...
Autumn in Germany.
It’s been a while since I have really written a blog entry. Lately, I have been really busy. At the end of October, I started a German class that is 4 days a week and 2 hours a day. Plus, It is 45 minutes by bus each way. So during the week, I don’t really do anything else. Some days I go to Göttingen a bit early and shop around, walk, and take pictures. I enjoy exploring around by...
These are the cities I’ve been in during break, and these are the words I put to them. I know it might not make sense but that’s what I like about it :) just a little experiment. See if you can figure out what I’ve been up to. I’ll explain in a later post. Hamburg: rotex, ducks, meeting, boating, singing, swearing, converstation, best friends, cameras, the alster,...
Sometimes perfection can be perfect hell.
I’ve never been homesick in my entire life. Before I left for Germany, I was told by Rotary I would get homesick, & I expected it. Before today, I had only missed home. Don’t get me wrong, since I have been here everything has been great, but today just sucks. I miss home so much. The only thing I can take from this is that I am learning more about who and what is important to me,...
My average weekday + weekend.
On a school day, my host mom wakes me up around 6:20. I usually lay in bed contemplating going back to bed for about 15 minutes, and then I rush to get ready and catch my bus at 7:02. I do everything I can possibly do at night in order to avoid waking up earlier. For breakfast, I usually have some sort of bread with nutella. I leave the house around 6:58 and wait at my bus stop. The school system...
What I want for my birthday.
Because everyone keeps asking… Canon Digital Rebel XS… I want other things but I refuse to write them. Give me money for the camera and I will show you all of the beautiful photos I take with it :) LOVE, Abbie
The other day as I was sitting before school started I was listening to my iPod. There were several people around me speaking German. I took one earphone out to listen to their conversation. This has really got me thinking about my time here in Germany, and how this is to what I have been doing thus far. Half of me is Home, Half of me is here. I have less than 12 months here, & I should be...
krismhuntley asked: When are you going to write in your blog again?
"So Abbie, how's school?!"
After everyone asking me “How is school?!?!” this last week, I am finally writing about school. I go to Kooperativ Gesamtschule Moringen, which is refererred to as KGS. My school has little structure, which I am enjoying. There is no such thing as a “typical school day” for me :) Every single day is different based on what teachers show up, how many classes I have and what...
Ich bin bequem.
It seems like yesterday that I was at the airport, saying goodbye to my friends and family, & getting ready for this great adventure. I arrived in Germany last Friday morning, and I have been here for nearly a week. There are no words, stories, or phrases that I can use to fully describe what I’ve experienced this last week, But I can say that I have never felt so welcome. My host family...
