Oh and no. I don’t like Mitch.
We got up the next day and I got ready and went downstairs and sat to eat lunch while we were eating the door bell rang and someone got up to open it. AM brother walked through the door and said hi and we did the whole “well this is awkward because you’ve been sleeping in my house for the past few weeks and I just met you” thing. After that all went down her mom told him I had three younger brothers and he was shocked. Then after we finished eating he sat down and opened a few packages from people that he got in the mail. Then he kinda just left(other plans, typical) he was really nice though so that’s good. Umm after that AM, Johanna, and I watched Breaking Dawn. And I almost feel asleep. Then after that we hung out, dinner, hanging out, and bed.
So today we went to another city with Emily and Lea. We shopped a lot and I got a cardigan with elbow pads, a scarf and a little bag that is pink and has sunglasses on it(now the home of my pinksunglasses) then mid-day we got some ice cream and that is where Emily and I tried spaghetti eis. It was good but very sweet. After this we walked around-more shopping- and then we went to a little bar place and Emily got something(no alcohol) and the Germans shared a cocktail. I got nothing because I felt sick. After that we had to rush to make our train back. Then home, food, hang, sleep.
So today was the day when I went to another city but this time with Mitch and his ep,Cedric. Her mom drove us up there and her and Johanna went shopping while we went and got the boys from the train station. When we had them we walked out and stopped to talk about what we wanted to do. We decided on a movie, the dictator. After this we walked a really long way AM and Cedric next to eachother and same with Mitch and me. We walked and talked, never really had silence between us. It was umm…nice? When we got to the castle we walked around it and the grounds and it was beautiful. Gosh. So pretty. Like a movie. We walked around still talking about like everything. I told him about Chris Colfer even… Then we walked back. Same a before to the shopping center where we went to the little grocery store to get like snacks.(Mitch bought my Mars Bar) and then we walked and stopped at this little fish place and the boys ate. AM and I sat across from them…so umm yeah. Then we got up and they got ice cream. I still didn’t eat. Then we sat and talked and talked and counted how many people had “America” on them. I think it was like 10 or so. That was great. Also, we counted the number of blue overalls we saw. And laughed when the number pasted 20. Finally it was time for the movie we went and sat down, Mitch next to me, watched the movie, we saw Afro circus in German and it was perfection. Then we went back to the train station and got on the train and went home, food, sleep.
We went with Emily and lea again to a different city where first we ate lunch, I had a hamburger, that was fun. Emily counted how much coin euros. It was like 14 something. Anyway, then we went around and shopped some more. And yeah. Then we just hung out in the mall and Emily checked off running up the down escalator off her bucket list. Then we went to a crap load of phone stores and then back home. Food, we made pizza, super fun! hung out, talked about everything with AM, about me leaving-she got a little teary eyed- and about coming to America. Then bed.
June 26-27-28: Was just hanging out along with the rest of the days. On the 27 we had a ‘good bye’ party at the school. That was boring but we got to see everyone so… And on the 28 we went to the soccer game at Davis’ ep house. It was super pretty and we had really good food, I ate a ton of strawberries. Germany lost. :( but then we went back, Em, Mitch, and both their ep, to lea’s house and went out and jumped on the trampoline. (where I also had my first drink of the trip. Prob. SHOULDN’T say that but hey. Yolo. Then Emily and I went up and slept for 3 hours until we had to get up at 3 to go get ready to leave.
I don’t know if I’m going to blog the last day. We will see.
Okay so here is the last week of the trip. I’m going to break it up a little bit maybe 2 days per post okay…
We went to school with our exchange partners and Anne and I almost missed the bus.(but it was all good the driver waited) So after we got to school we were taken and put into the 11th grade classes,again, because the 10th graders had to plan something that they do every year. So we went with them to the big hall place and there there was a course set up that you had to do blindfolded. Kaitlin was my partner and she led me through the course. After that was all done we went back up to the rooms and there they played games that I had never heard of and they would never allow to be played at our school. Umm. After that the teacher released them for their break and so they all left the room but Logan, Emily, Kaitlin, and I stayed in the room and ate food. Then we realized that we had been in school for over a week and we hadn’t said The Pledge. So Logan took off her American flag scarf(yes I have one too;they are very popular here) and said it to that. It was great. I have a video that I will post. So then we went downstairs and waited with all the Americans again because we were taking a trip to the beach/lake area by their school. So we walked there and all(well most of us) got on paddle boats(some of the guys were in canoes) that was really fun. We tried to race to canoe that had kyle, Connor, and Mitch in it and they were all throwing sticks and we went around trying to pick them all up. While doing this we sang some patriotic songs and Kaitlin held the American flag scarf off the back of the boat. Also, Connor was using one of the sticks and he acted as if he was looking through it like a telescope. It was hilarious. So after about an hour we all went back in and there was a little shack place where Kaitlin bought everyone ice cream and we ate and hung out for a good 4 hours. We played cards and some of the boys decided that they wanted to play Ninja, so that happened and it was super funny because they would end up in uncomfortable positions. After all of this happened we went back to the school to meet our exchange partners because school got over at 1. Many people went home but a few of the peeps wanted to go down to the beach and hang until 3 and take a later bus. So we were included in that group. So Logan, Kaitlin, and I wanted to go back on the boats so we rented one and paddled way far out and just hung out and acted silly(like we always do) so that was fun. After we got back to Anne’s house I went up and Skyped with my dad and Jessica. Then after that I went down stairs and hung out with Anne-Marie for a while and then we ate and watched the Germany vs. Greece game(Germany won 4-2) then I went to bed.
I woke up and went down for school again(the last day) we went to school and I followed Anne-Marie around this time. They didn’t do much but they did however have to go clean up the big hall area and while we were waiting to go in a little girl came up to one of the guys who has an ep and they were talking and then out of nowhere she punched him where the sun don’t shine. :/ it was hilarious and everyone was dying from laughter. After this we went back to class and they got their grades and school was done. Like at 10. So Logan,Emily, and I all went to Emily’s ep(Lea) house with Anne and Lea. We webt to the store and emily bought about 8 bags of Gummy Bears and I got some Mars Bars… Then we went back her house. We jumped on the trampoline(well they did, I was wearing a dress and thought that it probably wasn’t the best idea for me to jump) until lunch was ready(we had chicken soup over rice) after that we all went to the beach and hung out with some other people that were there. Emily, Logan, and I just talked and listened to music. About 20 minutes after we got there my stomach begin to hurt. So that wasn’t fun. Then we went on the bus back home and I asked if I could go take a nap. So that happened and Anne-Marie came to get me like 2 hours later. We went down and went outside with her family and there was cakes and sweets there. I had some and some water(I was still really tired) after that we went and hung out until we went to bed.
I’ve been so busy that I didn’t get to watch this until this morning. 4 days after it was posted.(I normal watch his new videos the first day he updates. But not this time.)
Also I’ve decided that I’m also going to do a list of favorite things here so if you want to leave like a category or something in my ask box I will use those, plus the ones I’m planning on doing anyway. Also I will have a list of cities that I was in.
The castle I went to see(in a city which name escapes me at the moment but…) yeah. That happened with Mitch.
Us saying The Pledge after realizing that we had been in school but not been saying it. We are crazy. We know.
Okay so I’ve decided that I’m just going to make one big post about the past week or so when I get home. However, I’m going to put up pictures. It’s just really hard to find time to take to do it all. I’m sorry. It’s been crazy! Love you all! Only 2 more days. :/
