First day at school (8jan)

I am not suffering from jetlag at all. It’s so awesome! My day started with breakfast at seven and I slept like a baby between midnight and the time of my alarm! Breakfast was okay. I had a normal sandwich and tried a yellow bagel. That was good. But the orange juice was weird, packed in a little can and was frozen so you couldn’t drink it…

Classes started at eight and the day was over at 6:30 pm. If I’m going to be completley honest, I think it was kind of a waste of time. Everything the teacher said I already knew, everything was obvious. Well, okay, some things I didn’t know, for example that parents in the US are the only ones that can give their child medication. If anyone else is going to do it, they need a note with a signature from the parents.

We had 2h classes and 30min breaks except for the lunch break. Right before lunch we were talking about food and nutrition and for lunch we get fried chicken, french fries and as much soda as we liked.

In the last class for the day the teacher handed out small notes to some of us. On the notes it said that we should go to the ”Basket Room” to pick up a suprise. It was a basket from the host families. That was so sweet of them! They paid for my New York tour on Thursday, I got a small bag of Skittles and M&Ms and some small stuff like a cap, post-its and a notebook. So very nice of them!

Dinner was served at 7 pm and we had like big fish sticks, and some pasta in some cheese sauce. Not so good. But the brownie for desert was nice! I’m starting to know why some Americans are like they are.

After that we went to the super market nearby. That was really an experience! Just because I could I bought a Butterfinger and just tried it. It was really good. And the Skittles, how come I’ve never tasted them before? They were delicious!

The time is running away and I’m starting to get really tired. Tomorrow is going to be even worse than today. We have classes from 8 am to 9:30 pm…
