A lot has happened since the last time i posted. A lot always happens in between my posts. I celebrated my 17th birthday here in Germany. It was one of the best birthdays I've had in a very long time. :) A few weekends ago, district 1940 had their district conference, or rather, our last orientation together before everyone starts to slowing fly home one by one. It was really kinda sad to know that we probably wont see each other for a very, very long time, if ever at all. And it was definitely the last time that we'd all be together as a group. Tears we shed, goodbyes were said, and memories were made. It's been an amazing year with these people, we have all gotten really close. I'm going to miss each and every one of them when I get back to Ohio...which is in less than a month. 26 days actually. I cant even imagine myself doing American things anymore, driving, shopping at Walmart, speaking english to people in public, paying in dollars. It's just weird to think that I ever did that and that I'll being doing it again in a month from now...I'm not ready to leave. 4 months ago I would have been totally up for leaving, but now I'm content, now I want to stay.
Other exciting news...I went to Heide Park, an amusement park somewhere relatively close to Hamburg, with my host family. They took me out of school for the day and we drove there and spent the day at the park. It was raining basically the entire day, and my host sister and I had decided to wear our short shorts....it was cold. But the weatherman had told us it was going to be a lovely 30 degrees (celsius) that day. He lied. We waited all day for the 30 degrees and they never came. But we had an amazing time anyway. :)
School is slowly winding up. This week is kind of my last week. Then next week I have 2 weeks of internship with a friend in Berlin, then the next week is (technically) the last week of school. Monday to Wednesday. But Tuesday and Wednesday my class is going camping or something like that. And Monday...who knows. It could be possible that we dont have to go Monday at all. But i'm kinda clueless when it comes to that. :) Yeah, and then the next Monday I'm going home. :( Have I said yet that I'm not ready to leave?
