I'm already 18. It was an amazing year that lead to this day.
Well, this blog is finished, but you can continue following my live under
Hope you'll enjoy it.
- Eiscremeparty, also ganz viele Toppings und jeder hat einkreme bringen dürfen :D
- Ich hab einen blau-weiß-roten Blimenkranz und ein patriotisches tshirt für den 4. Juli bekommen :D
- Wir sind abends für einen Spaziergang raus und haben verrückte Sachen wie in dem Heck eines Trucks fahren gemacht
- Es war echt toll
- Ich bin zu faul gute deutsche Sätze zu formen :P
Okay. Not sure about the weekend. Sunday I went with the bagnals to church, where there was a pretty good blue gras band. I didn't enjoy the youth group lesson too mic, but afterwards we went to panera bread for brunch. And to the beach in the afternoon. We made some pretty cool sandcastles.
Tuesday I attended Anne's WYBe meeting, we had a nice walk in the evening.
At some day (Wednesday or Thursday), Anne, Trent and I walked around the neighborhood at night too. That was really nice.
Thursday morning, I also gave my presentation to the rotary club of Wallace to say goodbye and thank you.
Friday, David took Anne and me to the beach, where we tried to surf, but the boards weren't long boards and that's apperantly harder, at least I had troubles to not nose dive. After that I went back to the Wagners, (did I?)
I can't remember dates :/
At some time when I stayed with the Bagnals, Anne, Arielle, Bradleigh, her boyfriend, Alexei and I went to defy gravity.
Well, fast forward. When back at the Wagners, I got told a bunch of good stories from Italy, also I got milka chocolate. So that's very good :3
Yesterday (Monday), I biked to Anne and we had some good time in the pool. After that, I biked to several stores to get material for my goodbye present and I'm pretty proud of it. So far. I still need a quote. If you have a good one, please leave it in the notes. Something about leaving or exchange year...
Today was pretty great, I met Arielle and Anne and we went to the beach, where I tried to improve my tan and we ate Brits doughnuts. If you believe the locals the best doughnuts in the United States by the way.
Also, I didn't get bitten by a shark, which is good considering the shark at yaks lately :P (mainly scaring you, there were 3 two weekends ago and this week again one, but farther away).
And I kinda binge watched Netflix tonight, which has to be sometimes too.
We also spent some time at the beach, but it was very hot (we had the last days at least 35°C very day), so we went to get some air conditioning.
On Saturday, after a pancake breakfast, Anne and I went out to go kayaking on greenfield lake. Right in the beginning, we saw a small alligator and during our time on the lake we saw a lot of turtles. A whole lot.
In the evening, I went out with Alexei's family and friends, we got some great (though fried) seafood and Ungar out at the broad walk, which is btw amazing. I think the renewed it for all the tourists.
Standing on the railing, staring out at the same, I kind of realized how much I miss y'all and that I'm ready to go home, but that I will miss Wilmington and all the faces I associate with it as well.
Today, on Sunday, we went to church in the morning, panera bread for brunch and to the beach in the afternoon, which was nice. We built sandcastles as if we're way younger and I got to keep on working on my tan (even though I'm careful, the sun here is much more intense than in Germany and even tan people here get skin cancer due to high sun exposure).
- Did I mention that I aced all my classes? Muhaha, that means I got an A everywhere. Especially in math, where I got 99% in the final test. I wasn't expecting the A in marine science but out of desperation (not really, but some effort), I handed an (for me extra) assignment in that gave me a hundred and booster my grade up with the one percent I needed.
- I'm thinking about making a returnee blog about coming back from an exchange, comparing different cultures (in my case mainly Germany and America), talking about my everyday life (for my American friends) and maybe giving some helpful information to further exchange students. Two questions:
- Do you like this idea and what other things would you like to see on there?
- Do you have a good idea for a name? I'll probably start a blog via Wordpress.
oh my, haven't written for a whole week.
So the problem with my phone got solved, first I got a phone from jean (which didn't work out quite as well as I imagined), but then my phone came back to life, so everything is alright.
Took a little ride to Hoggard to get the phone from Jean and to bring some shoes to mr. Soodek for his marine science class.
I probably just hang around, at some evening I tidied my room which was looking a bit out of order 😬
I'm really sorry for not remembering a lot from a week ago, I just know at some point, I spent time in the pool because it's so hot out now that pool or beach are the two only comfortable outside choices - thanks to air conditioning, inside is nice too, but it feels like a waste...
I organized to meet up with kaya and Alexei to make truffles on Friday morning
As I mentioned, kaya came over- way later than I expected, because I thought she would come in the morning, while ache wanted to come in the late evening- so Alexei was there for a bit and I texted Kaya again to find out when she would show up and so she got into the car and showed up- the truffles are amazing, especially considering I found them on sale from 15$ down to 1.50$ :D
It was a mix, so it didn't really matter that it was a few days expired.
In the evening, we had Hannah's graduation party, which was a desert party, so I just had loads of sweets for dinner. But pretty good ones, Hannah selected some French petites, Amos those things filled with cream, cake and so on... We also provided fruits, so I ate plenty of watermelons and raspberries.
I went to bed around eleven, I was just tired out of the sudden, while Hannah stayed up.
When Willian showed up in 1 am in the morning, that must have been the greatest surprise for Hannah and the best graduation present we could have gotten for her.
In the evening we attended a three hour graduation, which is basically reading the names of over 500 students and applauding. But all those cap and gowns are super cool, I'll upload some pictures later on. (Too lazy right now, sorry I'm in summer break mode)
William and Albert had to leave around 11, afterwards it was us three women again. Mentally preparing for the next week, with Kelleys and Hannah's trip to Italy, while I was looking forward to stay for two days with the Halls (my first host family if you re ally) and for the other few days with the Bagnals (Anne's family).
I took a bike ride. In the glowing sun. For an hour. At least, I took water with me. It still was exhausting. Not to worry though, I still was energetic enough to go out to chipotle, and to carolina beach, where I had the chance to play a little pool (even though I lost^^).
Sleeping loooong. I really enjoy the summer break and being able to sleep in, especially on Mondays.
I took another bike ride, this time a bit later, but it was still hot. Lets just say, all the biking looks positive for my legs.
Getting up at some early time like 8, doing some laundry to get ready to spent over a week outside the house I normally live in, go out for brunch, help looking for shoes as awesome shopping companion and getting back home, where jean picked me up around five.
We stopped at a garage, because she needed to get the final touches of a car inspection done, we arrived at the house on the voyagers way, I had a dinner that eminded me of Germany and I went to bed.
I slept in, which was nice, I spent my morning with a good breakfast, as in preparation for the paddle boarding I did today together with Katy. And man, it was great. I had a really good time, I'll probably feel the paddling tomorrow min my shoulders but whatever.
We also went for ice cream downtown afterwards.
I started to watch doctor who tonight, because I heard so much good things about the show.
But it took me by far not three hours, I was done at least an hour early. Also, all the problems were really easy and didn't ask for logarithms at all, what was my biggest concern.
I came home, shortly after it started raining, I took a two hour nap.
And then here's a cool map of states I visited so far: link
Wednesday we had the end of the year tournament in fencing
Thursday my last real day of school here in wilmington, I'll have to go back at Tuesday though for the final exam in math. Also I took the school us for the first time
Friday evening I saw a Shakespeare play with Anne, her family and Alexei.
Saturday I went to a beach soccer tournament, were at the beach for hours (didn't get too bad of a sunburn), went to a graduation party in the evening and them back to the beach with Arielle and Anne, we met up with Andrew.
Sunday, I spent my morning mainly scrapbooking, getting already a whole page for June filled and went to a cruise with Anne's church youth group in the evening.
Today (Monday), I went out with Hannah and bought a dress, a sun hat and a cool jacket (couldn't find any for you dad, sorry, but I'm still looking)
More information and pictures will be added soon.
Montag ist nun mal nicht viel passiert, aber ich arbeite derzeit an meinem scrapbook, wenn ich die Zeit habe und von daher. Und auch wenn ich nichts in den ersten zwei Blocks mache, in Mathe und Anatomie sind wir noch am arbeiten.
Nach der Schule bin ich zur der Auszeichnung für "excellence in Math" gegangen.
Ich habe außerdem Montag Nachmittag und Nacht etwa 100 Seiten gelesen, was kein Problem wäre, wenn Sie deutsch und nicht so wissenschaftlich wären 😬. Ich will mich aber nicht beschweren, es ist immerhin ein interessantes Buch. Außerdem habe ich eine Menge Bilder in SAMs Club ausgedruckt :3
Dienstag haben wir GATTACA in Bio angefangen, ich habe an dem scrapbook gearbeitet, während Blue Planet in Marine Science lief und habe an dem Review packet in Mathe gearbeitet, eine 100 für das Quiz zu dem Buch bekommen :)
Nachmittags das packet für mein liebes brüderchen abgeschickt, abends zu Fechten. Erfolgreicher Tag.
