Huomenna tulee kuusi viikkoa täyteen. Hullua! Paljon on tapahtunut kahden viikon sisällä. Kuten aikaisemmin kerroin, viime viikon tiistaina menimme musiikinryhmän kanssa Armidaleen (1,5 tunnin päässä) koska meillä oli esiintyminen katolisessa kirkossa. Meidän koulu on siis katolinen, jos joku ei sitä vielä ole huomannut (minä en ole katolilainen, mutta silti :D). Laulettiin kuorossa muutama hengellinen laulu ja mukana oli myös oppilaita muista kouluista. Oli ihan mukava päiväretki mukavien ihmisten kanssa :)
Tomorrow I've been here for six weeks, how crazy is that? Lots of things have happened during these two weeks. As I told you earlier, last week's Tuesday we went to sing to Armidale with my music class. Our school is catholic (as you can see from its name, but I'm not catholic, well anywayyy) we sang in a choir and there were students from other schools too. It was a lovely trip with a lovely people :)

Viime viikon perjantaina sitten suunnattiin bussilla kohti Sydneytä Fredin kanssa, jossa meillä oli AFS-valmennusviikonloppu. Voisinpa sanoa, että se oli elämäni paras viikonloppu. En ole ikinä tuntenut olevani niin tervetullut johonkin porukkaan (poikkeuksena toki ystävät koulussa!) Kierrettiin ympäri Sydneytä, käytiin mm. Chinatownissa, Darling Harbourilla, Oopperatalolla, Manlyssa..... Rakastan sitä kaupunkia <3 Vaihtarit oli tosi mukavia ja oli hauska päästä tutustumaan muihin, jotka ovat samassa tilanteessa kuin minä - vieraassa maassa, vieraassa koulussa ja vieraiden ihmisten ympäröimänä.
Last Friday we went to Sydney with Fred. We had an AFS-camp there, which means that they tried to give some good advices for us how to survive here. It was probably the best weekend of my life. I've never felt that welcome to some group as I did then (except I actually felt really welcome to school, my lovely & best friends in McCarthy <3) We walked around Sydney and we visit for example Chinatown, Darling Harbour, Opera House, Manly...... I love that city <3 Exchange students were really friendly and I really enjoyed my time with them. It's so easy to talk to them because they are in the same situation as I am - in a weird country, in a weird school and in the middle of weird people.

Yesterday we had social party at school in the evening. There were lots of people and I had the best time of my life. Students were voting for Social King and Queen, and they voted me to be Social Princess (which means that I got almost votes as much as the winner Queen). That never happens to me so I was really impressed! It was probably because I danced like crazy and sang too.. :D And I went to stage to dance so I saw everyone better :D Hahahaha I had so great time!!! Thanks for all who voted me ;) <3 I love you all, Aussie mates! <3
|I adore these girls, Bridget, Bree and Mikayla <3|

|Social Princess! :) Thanks Nick for taking this pic! :)|
|I took pics when I was on stage hahaha.... :D|
So this is what I've been doing lately :) Next post will probably have some videos in too. Now I go to sleep, have a really nice weekend! <3
