I thought my head was going to explode today! It was my first day of classes and boy, was it difficult! Well, it started off easy with English :) everyone had to introduce themselves to the class and talk a little bit about themselves in English which wasnt too difficult for me ;) We also had to write a paragraph about ourselves which was funny because everyone around me was asking me for help. After English I had math, which I think could possibly be my favorite course this year depending on how the others go. I was nervous that this math class was going to be stuff I hadnt learned yet, but we had a few problems of review and I understood them all :) annnnd got all of them right ;) I didn't realize how much I missed math until today. Yea I'm a nerd.... The only hard part of the math class is that the notations and vocab are different, but after I get used to that I don't think it will be a problem. Then I had history which was really hard to understand! The teacher talked really fast.... But I got some notes down which was good! Just what he wrote on the board but I think that still counts. If I understood right we are studying the results of WWII. My teacher is really strict and I was scared of him at first, but after class he pulled me aside and asked if I understood and then said that if I needed extra help to just ask and he could try to break it down for me in a way I could understand. I thought that was very nice of him. He was the only teacher to do say that to me. The I had lunch with wasn't bad--- pasta, bread, and fish (I thought it was interesting that they served fish at a school... Id never seen that before!) then this cake thing for dessert. Pretty basic cafeteria food. Then after lunch were some more difficult classes- economiques and philosophie. I dont think I understood one word in either class haha. It was so weird being in class and having no idea what the teacher is saying. Id never experienced that before haha but I have a feeling I might have a few more classes like that!
Tomorrow is a crazy day. Throughout the day I have 4 hours of economics! and 2 hours of Philosophie and 1 hour of history! man oh man... the 3 classes I can't understand at all hahaha :) how funny.
Well better rest up!
