The Weekend Homework Assignment is Listed Below This Post!
So I finally had to hit the snooze this morning and didn’t get up until , so its seems as if my body is adjusting to the new time zone, finally. I am now getting tired around , but that could also be because the days have been so packed. Its like until I get home from school (and then spend a few hours posting my blog (because I am OCD about the formatting), I don’t have a seconds worth of time to myself during the day. The good news is that until I stopped at the grocery today and picked up some items sure to ruin the phenomenon, the belt has needed to be tightened one belt hole since arriving. Such is the life of walking all over the place and eating normal sized portions.
School was pretty straight forward. The study session was pretty much on point after much persistence in getting kids to stay quiet. I had plans to sit on in Herr Fabricius’s 11th Grade English class, but ended up spending 75 of the 90 minutes helping someone avoid an international incident that could have cost GSG a reported 40,000 Euro.

I came up late for dinner and found that Beatrix had made me a plate. Hannah’s boyfriend, Kevin, had brought dinner over with him. It was a mix of a noodles in a thick cream sauces, with diced ham and sweet pickles. Not liking sweet pickles, I thought I was in for a tough meal, but I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. Afterwards, I discussed what time we would be leaving for Aachen the following morning and watched some T.V. with Beatrix, mostly the local news and some segments on Obama and Clinton’s paths through politics. I spoke with Hannah briefly about her particular passion for The Simpsons and Harry Potter and then I went to bed.
