I just don’t know where to start this time ‘cause since I’ve written something the last time it is almost a month ago. I’m not sure if it was laziness, uncreativity or just too much other stuff I did in my freetime. I didn’t even take many pictures the last months, because it is still winter and I already took sooo many winter pictures. Anyway… I want to split this entry in a couple articles up, otherwise it’d be very long and maybe a little bit boring. Today is already March 13th and I can’t quite believe it. In our school we have right know a “senior countdown”, which is telling the Seniors in how many high school day they have left. I think today’s number is 50. Only 50 days of school left here L and then graduation. Oh my gosh! It makes me excited and sad at the same time…
The last weeks were also all about Prom, who is going with who and what dress you are going to wear. I finally found my dress one week ago but I won’t post pictures until Prom to have a little surprise for you ;) It’s really hard to find a good dress here because the next good shopping possibility is 1 and half hours by car away in Eau Claire. I could luckily go there with a friend and here mom and we both found a dress. The stores are also only open ‘til 5 on week-ends. Seriously worse than in Germany :D I also didn’t spend that much money on my Prom dress. Some girls in our school spend around 400$ or more on their dresses. I won’t wear it again anyways. So why spend that money?!
To tell you a little bit more about the Prom- event during this year… It’s basically the same like home coming only ten times bigger and longer. Our Prom goes until 6 in the morning but luckily you don’t have to wear your dress all the time :O ;)
Prom is like a fun raise for the junior high school class, which is organizing everything, decorating and saving the money they’ll get for their senior year. Our theme this year is “Shine bright”, so there is going to be a lot of sparkly glitter stuff as decoration and after the formal “dress-suit” thing we have an “After-Prom”, where you can wear whatever you want to wear and they organize something like a Las Vegas night. It’s going to be a long night with a lot of fun J And I know for all the Germans here: no Alcohol all the time!! Unbelievable but true :D It’s a drug guys! Hahaha… I seriously don’t miss it but it’s just so funny how stuffily they’re here with that kind of things :P
Oh and then in regard on the dress style here. “In” is definitely what’s puffy and sparkly and probably a bright color. Some dresses remind of Cinderella or other Disney princesses’ dresses. But that’s what they like here. I wonder if my taste of clothes has had changed over the year..?
To change the topic after a while; I am (how you already know) in chamber choir and the last weeks we were practicing hard our dances for the 50’s show next week. I am really excited ‘cause we are going to wear these poodle-skirts and the boys leather jackets with sunglasses (…cool!) Overall we have 5 dances and I really hope, that we’ll give a great show together with the jazz band of our school :D
I notice every week how much more fun school here is than it is in Germany… Mainly because I don’t necessarily have to have perfect grades here. The last two weeks our leisure lifetime class went bowling almost everyday and we got grades on it. The last days my bowling group ordered pizza for lunch. A good end of our bowling time together, in my opinion.
That’s it, with my first of two big entries. Hope you are not that angry with me about not posting anything the last couple weeks and that you keep reading my blog!
Love you guys!
