Long Week

Standard

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.

I'm just your average blonde white girl from a small town in Colorado. I grew up going to school, skiing and most importantly, traveling. I like to think thats what sets me apart from the others my age. Ive been to Africa, Europe, Central and South America, and even lived for extended periods abroad. Its what I love to do, and here is where I write about it. I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoyed living them!
