Almost 3 months!
Now that I have been here for almost 3 month all I can say is that I love
it. Homecoming, school spirit, family, friends, food! Everything. And I'm
getting used to that no one can say my name and almost no one knows where
Denmark is. Homecoming seems long time ago, it was in mid September.
Nine-weeks exams has passed. Time is flying by and in two weeks I'm turning
17! Life is crazy! Two weeks ago I was in Georgia and it was really fun! I
went with my hostmom's family and we stayed in a cabin with a pool table and
a hot tub! It's was great! Last Friday I went to Universal's Halloween
Horror Nights. It was so scary and really funny! People went around with and
scared you all the time. I screamed all the time! And on the way home a guy
scared me and then he started laughing at me. Sunday we had an Rotary
exchange student BBQ for the exchange students in this district and their
families. It was great, we ate really good food, went tubing and had a lot
of fun! Next weekend I'm going to St. Augustine and I'm really excited about
that. And then Halloween is coming up, I already have my costume. I'm going
to be a fairy. And then I'm having a small birthday party for some friends.
So that is what happened in October!

November passed by so fast! But being an exchange student is still the
best thing in the world!
Well November started with my birthday which was a lot of fun. The weekend
before my birthday I had my first birthday sleepover with the rotary
exchange students and we just watched movies (The Notebook, Dear John and
Bridesmaids!!) and had awesome cupcakes and the next day we went to a
Renaissance Fair which was special. People had dressed up and there was
horses and stuff. The funniest thing though was this guy who had dressed up
as Jack Sparrow! The day after my actual birthday my friend brought a cake
to school for me and the weekend after my birthday I had my school friends
over for my second birthday sleepover. We went bowling and then we watched
Silent Hill and Bridesmaids (again!) and just talked to 3 am!
The 19th I went boating with my hostmomís family and we saw some famous
guyís house (Shaquille OíNeal) and we also saw a house that Michael Jackson
use to stay in when he went on vacation here in Florida. But there were some
huge houses on that lake!
And then there was thanksgiving. Tuesday I went and saw Breaking Dawn
with my friend! (We only paid $6 per ticket!!!) That movie is sooo good! (:
Wednesday I just enjoyed my day off and Thursday morning we went to my
hostmom's parentís house where we had turkey and everything that goes with
it. A lot of food!! And Thursday 11:15 pm I stood in line in front of Kohlís
to go Black Friday shopping! And the line was kind of long when we got there
Ė half an hour later it was so long that we couldnít see the end of it.
After Kohlís we went to target and then home. Unluckily I didnít have any
money but they transferred Friday morning so Friday afternoon we went
shopping again and I got new shoes (!!) and a pair of pants and some other
stuff. Friday evening we went to my hostdadís momís house and had more
turkey. Friday night (around 9 pm) we got our Christmas tree and we
decorated it and Saturday my hostdad put up the outside Christmas lights. So
now we are ready for Christmas!! (:
February 26, 2012
The new year started with a party at my friend and new host family's
house. It was an awesome party and we had SO much fun!! After the first week
of school I moved in with my new host family and I have 2 host siblings, a
sister and a brother. They are really sweet and I love living with them! But
at the same time I miss my old host family and I miss home. But the good
thing is that I see everyone in my old host family all the time and will see
even more of them in the next couple of months. So exciting! At the 19th the
school had a blood drive, where students can donate blood, and I helped out.
So I spend the entire day doing nothing but hanging out, chatting and making
sure that people werenít going to pass out after donating blood. Luckily no
one did! I also found out that they do not except any European blood and
they do not except your blood if you have been in Europe within a year I
think it was, which I find really weird&hell ip;
On the 26th I went with all the other Rotary Exchange Students to Sea
Camp, which was at Big Pine Key. On the way down there we drove in a bus and
we drove all the way out to Key West which was SO beautiful! We spend the
next 2 days at Sea Camp where we met American High School students from
Michigan and from the Keys which was really fun. We also learned about the
seas around the keys and how changing the sea affects us. And when we left
early on the 28th we were all sad because it was the last Rotary meet up for
all the exchange students. And it meant goodbye for some and see you soon
On the 1st of February I went with my family and the other exchange
students in my district to a Magicís game and the Magic WON!! For everyone
who doesnít know what Iím talking about: the Magic is the Orlando basketball
On the 5th there was the Super Bowl! And it was NY Giants against New
This weekend I went to RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) with about 100
other high school students from the district and it was AWESOME!! One of the
best weekends so far and I wish it wasn't over already! I already miss
everyone I met there!
So January and February have been two busy months and there is only about
5 left till Iím going home. So the next 5 months is going to be even more
filled with events and fun stuff to do and Iím looking forward to it.
