As much as I look forward to having no class.. I’m not quite sure I’m looking forward to weekends here :P Just because I don’t know what to do with myself. At home I’d work and then have meetings and then sleep the rest of the day away. Here, I want to go out and see things except it’s been pretty bad weather :(
Anyhow, today after the break, the 400s and the 200s sang songs to us XD pretty awesome. 300s have to do it next week (?) or after Berlin. Not looking forward to that lol :P it’s seriously like we’re in kindergarten :D
LF, RW, and I stay at Tor Cafe til really late again. I was gonna go with some others to the Grimm Brothers Museum but then it started pouring like crazy and after not even a minute outside, my pants were all wet.. so then I went back inside. CK came to our table and helped us go through chapter 9 of the book. Man, she must think we’re such idiots XD it was cool though.
I seriously really hate the fact that I always stay at school til late afternoon doing homework. So not me…
Anyway, after that LF, RW and I went to Konigsplatz to shop around and stuff. At this one shop this girl said something about … verschlusskauf?! and I was like.. eeehhh? Awkward turtle >< luckily LF knew what was going on :P
Afterwards we just walked around.. except I think I was being a little bit of a party pooper :P but anyway we ended up going to Mcd because RW wanted her gluten-free fries XD it was pretty cool.
Okay, I seriously have never worked this hard for German before… it’s very ungewoehnlich ><
We had to draw this “comic” thing for a small scene in Adam und Evelyn… mine was horrible but it’s all good. It was better than discussing the stupid book like usual.
Bleh, so I gotta finish writing my Tagebuch and then I have an Aufsatz to do for Monday. So much writing in German. I can’t believe how some people can blurt out words so quickly. I have to think over everything I write. Kinda sucks … :(
I feel so weird about staying on campus to do homework every day. Back home, I don’t start doing anything until 22:00 and blaaah idk.
I need to explore the city more.
… also, why do I lose so much hair?
Takes me longer to clean up after my shower than the actual shower itself.
I’m hungy… but I don’t really have anything to eat. I suppose that’s a good thing though. I have too much food at my fingertips at home.
3. Tag I think I’m gonna stop talking about how inadequate I am in class now. I think the whole world know how horrible I am :P
Anyway, had lunch with a bunch of new people. Well not new exactly but different. LF gets tried of routine.. so she likes changing it up >< I am the complete opposite so we’ll see how it goes hanging out with her. I don’t know how but I ended up eating with KM, DAG as well as RW, LS, AR, and DB. I guess RW, LS, LF, and I are usually together.. or at least we try to wait for each other.
Sorry… too many initials. Yeah so the five of us (KM, DAG, LF, RW and I) decided that after lunch we didn’t wanna go back to Tor Cafe like usual. KM said that he’s been to Nordpol Cafe before and he really liked the coffee and plus some of us still had the chip LR gave us on the first day for a small coffee. Anyway we went and hung out there and reviewed some Wortschatz. It was fun since we didn’t have to pretend that we were only speaking in German :P if we stayed at Tor Cafe, we would’ve had to be very careful with our English-speaking. We stayed there for a couple hours and I think the employees though we were crazy-English-speakers. We walked around a bit before we went back to meet our Tandem partners.
So yeah, my Tandem partner (JS.. lol) was really awesome. Her English is pretty much perfect >< I felt so bad speaking my uberbroken Deutsch that after a while I just gave up and said k let’s just speak English today.
The others waited for me because they wanted to go to Konigsplatz to shop except I felt like it was kinda late so I just came home. I will shop with EP and the other 200 people on Friday, vielleicht. Friday is a better day to shop :P
I’m getting more bequem with my Gastfamilie :) I think it’s also because my Deutsch is getting better.. even though I have to crank my brain gears very hard to produce anything good. Ah well.
Second day is coming to an end :) Class was good. Everything “geht gut” according to us in CSSG, EVERYTHING. Except I think that’s usually the case: “How are you?” “Good, you?” “Good.”
I feel very inadequate in class.. I don’t know how people can be so good at speaking and understand and so on…>< Don’t even start with the novel =_= good grief I can’t read to save my life. I remember that book I had to read for FREN122 or whatever, by Jean-Paul Satre… I can’t remember what it’s called but anyway yeah, I had the English translation of it and I couldn’t even understand it. Good grief.
Also, I’ve been trying to remember my French, why here I have no clue… but I’ve realized that I can’t construct proper French sentences anymore, everything comes out in German. J’ai oublie tout ma francais… et je pense que je ne peux pas quelquechoses… understand o_o verstehen… I can’t believe I used to write 500 word essays in French without any problems. I remember our IB French exam was like… a good few hundred words. I can’t even write 100 words in German without running out of things to say… meeeh
Anyway, today I stayed at TorCafe until 4-ish “doing homework”… at least LF and I made some progress with Kapitel 4 in Adam und Evelyn. Better than nothing.
Welcome dinner was tonight except my Gastfamilie couldn’t go, Schade.. but yeah it was good nonetheless :)
I want to walk around the city more. I really wanna go to Bergpark :/ and like the other places in Kassel :B it’s okay I still have lots of time… :)
Man, totally wishing I could’ve gone on the blending trip with everyone :B totally having a saints-withdrawal right now. I’m gonna try to go to Düsseldorf one weekend. Soon ><
I’m really having fun here though. Being suspicious about teachers spying on us, waiting to give us eine Gelbkarte… and speaking in superdupermuch broken Deutsch.
Good idea ?
My mother just added me on facebook… I don’t wanna add her… whose idea was it!? Good grief.
“Germans love to walk”
Yep, it’s true. I haven’t walked so much in my life >< if I get fatter during this trip.. there’s something very wrong, especially with all the walking I’ve been doing.
