Well, now it's been a month since I'm here. I've decided that every month I'm going to make a special post evaluating how it was and summarizing what I did ;)
The first month is the most difficult one. Everything is new and in the beggining that's cool, but then you realize that you really are going to spend a whole year here. Once you accept it it's a lot easier to go on.
Many things have happened: Mom's niece (Krista) came twice, it was Chris's birthday, Matt went to Europe to visit Elsa, Adka came and we went to Williamsburg and then UBie's stepmother died and he had to go to Ohio. Not a very typical month, regarding Mom, but sure it was exciting!
School started and I got to meet all my teachers and classmates. Some are better than others, but every of them acceptable and bearable. Specially in Art class and Public Speaking I talk to many of the kids. One thing that bothers me is that children here speak very lowly, so mostof the times it's not that I don't understand it but I can't hear them!!
I also tried many clubs and made it for the Fall play and had the anime club first meeting today. I like poeple in Drama club, they're nice and there's one girl from my P. Speaking class that I like veeeery much. In the Anime club everything is insane. Seriously. No kidding at all!! I'm a bit afraid, but I've decided that before judging and because today was the 'presentation' day and didn't watch ani anime at all I'm going to give it another chance and then decide whether I like and keep on going or not.
Next month I want to try the art club (1st meeting on the 6th of October) and the Pilates club (not a clue when 1st meeting will be)
So far I'm doing well with my grades, although it could be better. Since here everything is kind of easier compared to Spain (tests are basically matching or multiple choices) I have made the promise to try my best so my average will be an A and therefore when I go to Spain it'll be something like a 10 ;)
I have read 4 books (Breaking Dawn, Dating Game, The Elegance of the Hedgehog and Cindy Ella) and am reading other 2 (The Scarlet Letter and Dreamland). Most of those books are Gul's but she's very nice and lends them to me! :D
Finally, I went through some very difficult moments missing Spain, family and friends(and food) but succesfully got over them (go, Elena, go!). The path to maturity and independence is right in front of me and I seem to be going the right way.
Now a new month is starting and ther will be many new experiences that I'll share with you as often as I can! :)
