Sorry I haven’t had time to post lately, I have been very busy with school. Since arriving I have had 5 unit quizzes of which I understood half of one (math). So for my biology history and one of the math quizzes (yes, 2 math quizzes!) I just bubbled random letters since they were multiple choice. The second math one was one where you had to talk through your answers, and I drew pictures that I thought explained everything quite well. (My teacher did not agree.) And by the time I had to take my 5th unit quiz (physics) of which I was not even here for the unit I was fed up of not understanding and decided to make the teacher laugh. I deciphered some of the questions that said things like “What are Newton’s 3 laws?” to which I responded: 1. Don’t eat apples that fall from trees, because they are bruised. 2. Fig Newtons are delicious. 3. My name is Newton not Nuetron. Each accompanied by my best illustration. I was at least able to do things like this in Spanish. I added things to the pictures so when the questions asked things like “this block weighs X and is traveling at a speed of X how far will it go if X force is applied?” I put an elephant in the way and said that the block wouldn’t go anywhere because there was an elephant in the way. When my teacher saw it he smiled, and I at least made some new friends who think I am pretty funny, so it was productive in at least one way. I am my fathers daughter.
Anyway, on Sunday my family and I went to a park to see a Chilean rodeo (cowboys on horses slamming cows into walls), fly kites (there was no wind) and eat Chilean food (steak kabobs and candy apples). It was a relaxing day in the sunshine. 🙂 Overall a good week so far.
