friday december 11, 
already friday and I'm looking forward to the weekend!
Yesterday our chorus, the school band and the accapella group I'm in had their christmas concert. The concert was supposed to be on the wednesday but they changed it because of the snow day.
We practiced a lot in the chores class but it never sounded good because half the class wasn't really singing all they did was laughing and chatting. So I was really surprised that the concert was so good. I think everybody enjoyed it and liked our singing or at least thats what they told us :)
And then I sung stille nacht ( the german version from silent night) in a duo with a friend of mine.
I was nervous when we started singing in front of all that people. My knees shacked and my mouth was spy dry. But then when we had the first verse done I was fine and enjoyed to sing and show them some german.
And what made me very happy were the people that came to me after the show and gratulated me. It was definitely worth it.

And now it's finely  friday and I'm looking forward to the end of the school and the weekend. Right after school and AFS friend from brazil and her host mum pick me up and we go shopping together in the portland mall! thats always a lot of fun... So the weekend can come!!

tuesday december 8, 
its already 4:30 it was a very normal school day. Got out of bed way too early for my taste then up to school with my sister, I'm so lucky she is a senior and has a car so we don't have to worry about missing the bus! We have to drive for such a  long time  day.. over half en hour one way.. in switzerland we are about at the border in that time ;-) Before school everybody  stands around in the hallway, talking, laughing, drinking coffee against the tiredness, and having fun... then the bell rings and everybody goes to the class room... then 10:20 lunch break: nasty food but cool people but only for how an hour that's really too bad! after the 3rd bell everyone goes back to school till 2:05!!! And school is OVER!!! 
But tomorrow we probably will have a snow storm and that would mean no school!! I really really hope it snows! 

Ohh and by the way the zopf backing yesterday went great i was exhausted but very happy after the brownie meeting... the brownies are all so cute!

Monday december 7

Hello everybody
I'm at my school in ac support right now and i don't have anything to do so i decided to start a blog about my exchange year in the USA. Since I'm a really lazy person I probably wont publish to often but i always wanted to blog about something so here we go!
My first problem is should i  write my blog in english, the language that i learn in that year, swiss german the my native language or german the language we have to write at home? I still don't know the answer and so i decided to start first in english just to give my family in switzerland an exercise in english! But it can be that the next blog is in german just to confuse my american friends we see!
So today is the december 7 and the time is just passing way to fast. I'm already in a christmas rush since i still haven't sent my page with all the gifts for friends and family at home and I'm starting to worry it will never come home by time ! The other thing I'm worry about is that I have way to many things i want to send and i guess at the end the price to send the page to switzerland is more than the actual worth of the presents.

Today is monday and that means for me Brownies after school. No not the brownies you can eat!! It's the girl-scout group i help to lead! 12 awesome little girls and its always so much fun to be with them! Today i will bake zopf with the girls ( a traditional swiss bread) I already prepared the dough for them so they can form their animals or what ever they want and then it cane go in the oven and they can enjoy eating it hopefully. But now i have a problem!!
I went shopping yesterday, bought all the stuff on that the recipe says and i was so proud of me that i did it by my self. But then i started baking and ooohh no!!! the flour is brown!! Yes i bought the wrong flour don't ask i don't even know what kind of flour it is... It says white flour why is that flour brown?!??!  But the dough smells the same as always and i really hope it will still work! And maybe I invited  a world new meal! brown zopf... who knows XD

So i got to go! Math next! I hope i will write again soon!
