Hokay, so. I have absolutely nothing interesting to say, so here are some random things that happened to me today:
- I sang "Fifty Nifty United States" to some 7th graders because they didn't believe me when I told them I could name all of the states in the USA. Yeah, they thought I was cool.
- I finally figured out how to [almost] completely understand "Oberhessisch" <-- Okay, so you know how the US has different dialects in different parts of the country? So does Germany, and it is generally the old people who speak said dialects, and they speak very quickly. Suffice it to say that this is quite the accomplishment.
- I won an ebay auction!!! WOOHOO!!! Wanna see my treasure? Okay, okay... here it is. It's a cute messenger bag that I can use for school when my shoulder bag is too full:
- Every day when I walk to school, I walk through a beautiful little courtyard filled with trees. Today, the grass was being mowed (I love the smell of freshly mowed grass), and the leaves were all shades of yellow, red, orange, and brown. I thought it was pretty, so I took a picture.
Soo... that's some of the "scenery" from my Thursday. Thank goodness it's almost Friday.
Oh balls. I still have a lesson to prepare.
EDIT (because I'm a nerd): I just found out that each day I walk a total of 3.3 miles each day (1.05 of that is completely uphill, but that also means that 1.05 is completely downhill), just going to and from train stations. Can't imagine how much it adds up to when I add walking around the school...
Second EDIT: There's this awesome blog that I read here. This week, Casey and 3 other amazing bloggers are hosting a follower fest. So head on over there, and check out some freaking awesome bloginess.
