December also means that I get to open up a little slot on my advents calendar everyday and eat a piece of yumminess (also known as chocolate. :)) But I have 2 calendars, so that means 2 pieces everyday. yum. :) I like this tradition. I'm bringing it back to America with me. :)
So what have i been up to lately? nothing much really. Sierra and I (successfully) celebrated Thanksgiving last weekend. Pretty awesome. we used absolutely no measuring cups, spoons, or anything of the sort, and yet everything turned out pretty darn awesome. we were very happy. and everyone seemed to really like it. it was a very nice feeling. :)
this weekend i was with friends. friday we made brownies, which didnt taste (or look) like any brownies i've ever had before. but they were good...well the one pan. the other pan was a little burnt. :) the next day we went to "markt der kontinente" at some museum in berlin. it was cool. very cool. very colorful and pretty and just cool. :) it was fun.

I got home on Friday from my classtrip. On Sunday, my host family and I left for yet another Ostsee adventure. :) This time we went to a place called Koserow on an island somewhere on the Ostsee. When we got there we walked around and explored and did a "mini" hiking thing. (Their version of mini and mine differ quiiiiiitttteee a lot.) Day 2 we got bikes and rode soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo (the number of o's I put after the s doesnt even acurately describe just how far we rode) far. I just looked it up. 22.6 km ONE WAY. Insane. But we went to a musuem, Historical Technical Museum of Peenemuende. Yeah. Then we rode alllllllllll the way back. Day 3 we went to Poland! Yes, so we went to Poland, which was just like driving to a different state because there was no border patrol just a sign that said "Welcome to Poland" or the Polish equivilant of it. And we went to a Polish market which was pretty darn cool if I do say so myself. :P Day 4 (today) we went to another museum, a cool one, kinda like COSI but not nearly as cool, but still pretty cool. And then we drove home.

But in other news...this weekend was spent superbly. I yesterday Jule and I went to a party for her class last year. And it was actually pretty fun. Some good conversations were had. :) I love talking about stereotypes, they're always so funny. :) Apparently I'm supposed to be blond and a cheerleader. And I'm supposed to date a football [player] (haha, Jule. :)) And I come from a family that includes a mom, a dad, and 2-3 kids. We live in a fairly nice, suburban home. And yeah. That's how my American life should be. As for the German kids I was talking to, their lives should go as follows: They wake up in the morning and throw on one of their many pairs of lederhosen. Then they go downstairs for breakfast. Breakfast consists of sausage, sauerkraut, and beer, just like all the meals they eat do. All Germans are mean and grouchy and impatient and punctual. And they all have no sense of humor (something that everybody laughed at when I told them. :)) And yeah, that's how a German's life should be. :)
And other than that I have nothing really to say. Actually, I didnt really say all that much in this post. It's just kinda meaningless rambling. Which you all will of course enjoy thoroughly. :)
