Woah man, summer is almost over.... happiness and sadness! I haven't wrote a journal since the beginning of last year so I thought, what the heck.
First journal entry of 2010!!!
Went to France during Spring Break! That's the biggest thing that happened to me all year and it was for sure the best experience of my life so far!!!!
I loved it so much! I just love France now really, it's not the most beautiful or the nicest place so maybe it was the people I was with or the feel of the place... It was a total immersion trip with my French class, god I love those people! I also met sooo many interesting people there!
Words don't even do the trip justice!!
My family was amazing I stayed with them for a while and they were incredibly kind and then there were some other...... interesting people I met.
When me and a couple of my girlfriends form class were walking around Paris this group of like six huge guys came up to us (it was creepy) and grabbed us, I elbowed my guy and ran along with two other girls and it turns out they were just scam artists trying to give us bracelets. Although they could of done it in a less creepy way!
We also went to a bunch of little towns (Jocklen, Rennes etc.), Omaha beach (D-Day beaches) and the forest where Merlin supposedly lived!! It was epic! We stayed in Rennes in Bretagne (Brittany in English) and Paris. It was just the best, there is just to much to talk about! We did do the touristy thing somewhat and then we went around and did things you wouldn't do as a tourist. Man was I glad I spoke really good French! Although the first day was culture shock for me and I butchered the language all day, I left a few unhappy waiters in my wake....
After that it was all good though! J'aime beaucoup des choses en France et beaucoup des chose du languge! Je pense que c'est tres important pour moi a pratique mon francis! XD
Also I wish we had a metro system throughout the US or something, its SO much easier and better for the environment. I also hate cars and driving anyway......
Also went on a balloon ride this summer! It was cool, but don't know if it was worth the money, but the tickets were a gift so it was for sure a great experience! I can check it off my bucket list now!!!
Summer has been pretty great, but I do wish I was better in social situations! I was invited to quite a few parties but was to afraid to go... I'm disappointed in myself, but I'll try better next time!
A lot of exciting things have happened and will happen I'm hyped up for next year!
For next year's Anime Convention we already have a costume planned out and everything (my little group and I.) It's super awesome, no last minute sewing for me. I was sewing my Chopper costume on the car ride there last year! NOT recommended, I couldn't even wear it in the end because of a malfunction.
It wasn't cool. Ah well, we're also learning the Bo Beep Dance for no real reason, it's extremely fun. An so.... I dunno, it's really n amusing dance!
To many smilies!
Just got back from my cabin and so glad..... there is just way to much drama up there, and like everyone else, I suppose I really don't get along with my mother, who is the only parent allowed up there by my Grandma.... weird issues..... XD That whole side of my family is pretty messed up...
See ya, off to go eat some tastey shisca-bobs! With Bell Peppers
