Heyy guys! Couple of weeks with no post. I thought I should stop by.
School started two weeks ago and I've been busy, busy, busy. Even on Sundays I've been running around doing things like a wild woman.
We get completely new teachers and new schedules every term (3 terms in a year: fall, winter, spring) so it took me a little while to adjust.
In the fall my first class was at 10:15 everyday and now I'm back to 8 a.m. so that was quite the change.
Umm... yesterday all the students taking Japanese got to go to Boston and visit the Children's Museum because they were having a special "Japanese New Year" celebration.
It was pretty fun. Got to eat Japanese snacks and make some origami hats and stuff. It was meant for children, but teenagers can totally enjoy it too.
They had this really cool Taiko drumming thing and they asked for volunteers and some of my classmates went up. It was so funny because it was like a 16-year old and a 6-year old XD
And it was just refreshing getting out of the little New Hampshire town I'm usually stuck at for school.
And we got to go to this really funky Japanese restaurant. I liked it a lot. SOOOOO much better than the cafeteria food I have to eat every single day here.
Anyway, that's all that's up with me lately. It's snowing like CRAZY right now. All the other schools are canceled, but since we can "tough it out and walk through the blizzard to class", they never cancel school for us. One of the many disadvantages of going to boarding school >_<
