My head feels like it's about to burst. There is so much information being squashed into my brain it seems a mystery to me that it hasn't burst. Having school all day long, in German of course, and then taking German class, in order to learn German and therefor understand school, is taking a toll on my brain. However, I am learning so much and I love it!
Today we had English class in school today. As you probably can guess I love English class (for obvious reasons). The topic was eggs, and we were reading aloud a story about eggs in class in English, of course. Generally speaking the teacher doesn't call on me because I can already read in English and it's better for the other students to read aloud to practice. Well today, after one paragraph was read, I was called on. I thought, 'Okay, no problem, I can read aloud in English." Well think again Katie. I was asked to translate out loud the paragraph that was just read.
Are you kidding me?!
On the spot translation is really difficult to do. Not to mention reading aloud during my thought process. My hands got clammy, my face got red and I'm sure everyone could hear my heart beating. I struggled through every last word. What seemed like an hour later, I finished the translation. That was rough. Why is it that the teachers always seem to take me by surprise?
On a side note...
Some may remember my bike that was stolen in October, and then found again a few weeks ago, and then picked up at the police station... About that... it's stolen again. Within an hours time of me getting home from school and running, the bike was stolen out of my building. I'm still hoping that someone (as in my neighbor) took it for a joy ride and is coming back with it. But, as the hours pass, I really doubt it.
I hope it comes back to me yet again!
