hey! if there is anyone who is still looking for new mails from me: thank you and i'm sorry. the only excuse i have is school and that the last week the computer was broken, so i have to go to the library, where i am at the moment!
ok, so the first three weeks are over now, and i am really happy that i am still alive. especially the first week was horrible. some of my classes were really to heavy, so i had to change some. the first time in math was really hard. i didn't understad a single word, ang our normal homework was: read this ten pages ( were they explain a whole new subject ) and do these exercises,.... !
now, after a while it is getting better. laura sent me what you are doing in math and physic and i showed this to my teachers i they said that these are the exactly subjects we are doing here, so i thing i am now in the right classes, and it works a lot better than at the beginning. i hope my english writing is getting better soon too, because i write a lot in my english class,... so in school everythings work at the moment ( it depends on math, so it can changes quickly).
the school is huge,...we have 3000 students, 300 teacher and 4 units. each of them is nearly as big as our school !so when i want to go from one class to the next i have to be out of the classroom, when the first bell rngs, when i want to be in the next room when the second bell rings. and between this i nearly must run!!
i'm really lucky that i met claire in the shop. the more time i spend time with her the nicer does she seem to be.
she offered me to stay the second half of the year with her. her dad haven't meet me before, but who cares..?through her i get introduce into her group of friends. so it's not that difficult to meet some new people. i went with her to a band competition ( she was in the past in the band, so all her friends are there ). it wasn't that interesting, but it was a great chace to meet some new people and to talk to them. last sunday i went with her and her mum to cincinetti, where she had harpe ( harve ) lesson. after that we went shopping in a huge mall and i bought a dress for homecomming, which is next saturday. it's a little difficult to describe what it looks like, but i will take a picture when i wear it.
last friday, it was so embrassing. i came to school ( every morning a half hour to early ), went to my advicery and stopped in front of a huge poster:
RUTH,WILL YOU GO TO HOMECOMMING WITH ME???
this was from a boy out of my math class, who is looks a 'little' like a freak, but he is really nice friendliy and TALLER than me. THANK YOU;-)!!!i had to send him the yellow ballon, when i say yes and the red one when i don't want to go with him. in case i would chose the red one was there only a yellow ballon. after i gave him the only ballon i had i wanted to take the poster down, because it was huge and in the middle of the school. i started doing that and everybody stared at me. claire tought me that i'm not allowed to take it down, because that would be unpolite,... so the whole day everybody who passed this poster stopped : ohhhh, that's cute! do you know who jacob or ruth is? no, but thats cuuute!!
yeah, so thats how i get my date for homecomming, but we will go in a group with claire and many other friends, so its not so important how my date is.when i came home and showed the poster brook and bill, the first thing bill said was: the marriage begins always with the first date!!RIGHT BILL!!! !!but this day didn't end with that,..
in the evening, i wanted to 'go out' with some friends. first claire and i went in the mall for dinner ( chinese;-)!), then we went to the last two quarters of the footballgame and after that we went with some other people to 'bill's donuts'. when we came out of the shop it was half past eleven. i have to be home at twelfe o'clock. but all the others planned to go to claires house and watch a movie. so i went with them and called bill. i told that thay want to watch a movie, and somebody can bing me home when its over ( everybody has a car, thats so strange ) . he allowed me to stay there, so we watched a movie. it finished at 2 am. when i sat in the car on the wa home, brook called me. she sounds really angry and wanted to know, where i am and when i will be at home. after that call i was really a littlle nerous, because brook sounded really serious. she was still awake when i arrived and told me that she really didn't want me to stay so long! i was lucky because she realized that it wasn't my fault. bill looked 'wrong' on the clock, however you can do that, but that is bill....it wasn't that good because it was the first time i went out in the evening just with friends, so i was afraid that they won't let me any more, but i was wrong. and it really wasn't my fault, so what should i do?
tonight i will go with claire, a girl out of my advicery and a boy out of my physicclass to the chinese restaurant for dinner and after that we will watch a movie in the cinema ( thats the normal way of ' do something on friday night' ahhh i miss germany !!)
the boy called " razwi" comes from iran in moved to america this summer. he is soo cute ( more like a little boy 'cute'), but really nice. and is searching for friends, so may be we will become friends, who knows....
i think that are the most important things. in general i am fine here, but i really miss you and germany.....
bill and brook are really great hostparents. i have a lot fun with bill, he is really a freak, buts thats funny and brook is so nice,....so i am happy to stay with them, but i'm also looking forward to see you all again. i hope you don't forget me... i think A LOT about you, i just have not enough time to write you often, but that will change when my life starts to become more relaxed!
i miss you!!lots of kisses,....
