How's everybody doing?? I have some exciting news!!
Yesterday we were given our progress reports. It seems that they give them to us every 4 or 5 weeks. It's not the final report of the semester, or even the quarter, but it gives you an idea of how you're doing. I'm actually proud of myself! I thought I wasn't doing well at all in English, but i can't ask for more! Being an exchange student, taking Honors English and getting a B is quite impressive, don't you think?? :D (I uploaded the picture in Photobucket, too)
I also had my first National Art Honor Society meeting (no regular Art Club this year, it seems...). They have a lot of interesting projects, although they are not 100% sure at this point. As I get to do things, I'll tell you! maybe (only maybe) there will be a trip to Washington D.C. to go to the National Art Museum. It depends on if we manage to get the money.
Now let's tell things in order... This weekend was very fun! I finally got to meet Anushka, she's so funny! :D I liked her very much, and seems an interesting person, I really hope I can get to know more about her.
Saturday was pretty normal, but on Sunday... we finally went to the movies!! (oh yeah!! :P. Chris wanted to go too, so he took us and watched 'Burn after Reading'. Let me tell you this, if you have the chance to see it, don't. We all thought it was a comedy...wrong idea, not funny at all. The story is confusing, that if we can tell it has a story! :O So the 3 of us were a bit dissapointed... I can't believe Brad Pitt let me down :(
There was something that really shocked me. The tickets are $10!! :O That's madness! Gul says in Turkey it's more or less the same, but in Spain it's like 4E. Crazy, crazy! Before I came I thought things would be a lot cheapier here, but it's not that way at all! there are some things that are more expensive than in Spain (Food, for example). I'm still not into the clothes thing, but I'll find out soon :D
Today it was fine, just a regular day of school... It was a B day. i don;t know why, but I seem to like A days better.
How are you doing in Linares, Mom and Dad? I don't know what you mean by 'enough' :S Anyway, try to look at the bright side and enjoy yourselves, it you vacation after all! (well, maybe not for you Dad :P)
How was it in Portugal, Esme? I hope you send me a looong email with a lot of pictures! :D
Well, everybody, I'm leaving for now! ;)
p.s: I added a new link. It's a website with a lot of pictures of a lot of countries, I find it very interesting. check it out ;)
