So. Its been awhile and I finally felt guilty enough to do another post. What have i been doing since i last posted? Well, alot of school. And learning italian. (And spanish and german too!) I also went to Monza, a formula 1 racing track (sounds exciting, but it wasnt. We watched formula 3 racing and we were the only people there) with all the other rotary exchange students. I think i would have died of boredrum without the other kids there. It was nice to see all of them again and my highlight of that was going to graces hosue afterwards to spend the night. I also went to a musem-
That is the courtyard and it was very nice. I got to explore it a bit on my own, and it was the first time i had been into an italian musem! It was fun.
I have this school notebook thing where i write my homework and stuff, and also a really quick summary of what i did on that day, and most of theem look like this
"had lunch with kylee/grace. Studied verbs (sometimes Italian lesson or soccer practice goes i nnet there) Ate. Slept. And thats about it! The trees have been turning more brown
(thats kylee and grace... totally a posed picture but still quite nice) And its been around 60-65 degrees everyay. I bought this wonderful and warm leather jacket for only 20 € and i still cant believe what a deal it was. I have been having soccer every thursday night from 9-11 (just practices) and at my first game last sunday i scored 4 goals. It was really fun and i have another game i nabout 4 hours, so i hope we win! School has been going good, i am really enjoying the fact that i have a new scedule and i am actually sometimes trying to follow my classes. I started german, but my classmates started about a month and a half before me so i have a long way to catch up. I just got my textbooks today so now i can start really following class! I just want to say that i really love the other americans at my school. They are fantastic and i dont know what i would do without them. I try to post pistures on facebook, and after i go to veroan tomorrow im sure im going to have a million pictures so go check it out maybe around thursday or sooner. Ill try post on here about it too :). My language is coming along, i have 3 lessons a week and 2 of thsoe are with 4 other exchagne students here and the other one is with this free tutoring place. Its still coming along slow but im learning! Sometimes i feel really frustrated, but then i remember that when i arrived i knew next to nothing in italian and its only been a month and a half and i am understanding about the just of everything that is said to me (if it is said slowly and directly at me.) I dont miss the hot weather of hawaii though, and i hope ill see snow one day here!
I really love italy. Everyone should come here.
