I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant. None of those things, however, came out of my mouth. All I was able to do was turn to Liesel Meminger and tell her the only truth I truly know. I said it to the book thief and I say it now to you. I AM HAUNTED BY HUMANS.”

    Ich kann etwas Deutsch sprechen. Nicht sehr gut. Ich hoffe, das kommt heraus, was es sein soll und nicht, dass Ich mag den Mexikanern wie mein spanisch aß. xD

    Thanks! Very Happy
    I've been revising a bit. So far, I know how to ask where places (like the shopping center XD) are, and actually understand the directions.

    I've studied since an hour ago. 'Ich glaube, die Rechnung stimmt night ganz' is something along the lines of: 'I don't think the bill is completely correct.' Just in case XD

    Nice Very Happy

    My class can get pretty racist (although they're only joking) - they'd be shouting Auschwitz and all sorts of Nazi stuff at the Germans and Austrians.

    What trip is it for? History? Science? Fun? Smile

    Well, our school is, ah, pretty musical, to put it simply. It's not a school that specializes in musicians or performing arts, and we don't have concerts all the time or special classes or anything, but it just so happened by chance that a fair amount of the students can sing and play guitar pretty well. Especially the 4th graders (12th graders in American system) They have 3 guitar players, and at least 10 amazing singers. My class has 2 guitar players, a flute player and a couple of piano players.
    Anyway, I don't know how, but for years the school has been having a correspondence with a Burgenland Croatian school in, well, Burgenland XD (part of Austria) That school is pretty musical also; they even have their own band. They've also been coming to visit us for years, every year at the beginning of the school year to play a concert and just hang out. For a change of pace, we decided to go there and visit Austria on the way. It was great; I really had a magnificent time. Our guitar players joined forces with their guitar players (and their drummer) and put on a little show. We also did a little play, and all of it was next to a great big campfire.

    I am so sick of the sun. I hope it rains. I bought two great scarves and I want to wear them XD
    Also, I have never bought sunglasses. One pair are my mom's old ones, the other a friend gave me. Why, I don't know, because they're awesome.

    I love the sun. I just hate the humidity. And the fact there's no pool around.

    That's why I love Sharm El Sheikh - it's one of the driest places on Earth (well the whole country apparently) so in theory there should be no humidity Very Happy

    Well, I'm fine with the sun, but after 4 months of nothing but sun I'm seriously sick of it XD I die every day in school. Although it is supposed to rain tonight, so I'm looking forward to that Very Happy
