Today I got up and had to work at Carpathia. There was only a small birthday party, so I only worked for 3 hours until 3:30. Then I went outside to the Father's Day Picnic and met up with my dad and Chris. And Oma and Opa and Uncle Kurt and Uncle Bob, of course. And then, the coolest thing ever happened. Oma told me that there was a Norwegian exchange student at the party that was staying with one of the families and told me that I should talk with her. So, I did. For a little, but then I drove home to change. When I came back, I hung out for a little more, met up with Kellie, watched Darin and Crackhead Yahoo Guy dance, hit nothing at the shooting booth, and drank some cranberry juice. Then Kellie and I started talking with her again and she taught me some phrases and told me a little bit about it.
Here's what I got out of it mostly:
-Their R's are like IMPOSSIBLE for me to say.
-Everything here is cheap, everything there is expensive. [$20 for a movie ticket!!! :O]
-I should always say "Thank you for the food" after every meal.
-I should not ask people "How are you?"
-Girls wear baggy pants, like guys.
-They have 13 grades
-It's so "free" over there. You get a lot of freedoms as a teenager
-They listen to a lot of American music
-School there is much harder...and Americans are mostly dumb. Lol.
-You only need to be 16 to get piercings or tattoos. :DDDDDDDD
-18 is the drinking age, but everyone drinks every weekend or so like we do here.
What's even cooler is the fact that SHE WANTS TO HOST ME.
:D I realllllllllllyyyyy hope she gets to, because she is absolutely awesome.
But still, I'm really nervous.
Anyway, Uncle Bob said that if I drove Kellie home, he'd give me $10. And he did. Squeee!! <3 :]
That's it, I think.
Yesterday after I got to Kellie's, we went boating. Which was helllaaa tight. We boated to Canada, basically. Hardly, though. Just Canada's side of Lake St. Clair, if that counts for anything at all, haha. Still, it was fun. We boated to Seaway Island which is where all these giant freighters pass by, and when they do these HUGE ASS waves come. Of course I took pictures. It was good to be back out on the boat since I haven't been on it in awhile. The water was ABSOLUTELY FREEZING, but I was forced to jump in quickly. I was holding a boating shoe to put it on, but I freaked out because I thought there was a spider in it...and dropped it in the lake...seriously like 30 seconds after Kellie made fun of me for always losing them whenever we went boating. [True story.] So I hopped in, almost had a heart attack, and then swam after it. We got home at like 9, and then Kellie came over and spend the night. Good times, I'm telling you.
