07/10/2011: I take drawing classes with my host sister. The class is younger, so Tia lets me do my own drawings of what I want- portraits. I’m okay with this one, it’s the best I’ve done so far. There are small details that are bugging the shit out of me, but they're not important. Just a sketch, I tell myself.

It's been three weeks since I've been in Belgium and I've done a lot and yet so little. On my third day, I visited Paris. I've been there before, but that doesn't make it any less amazing. We went to drop my host sister off at Charles de Gaulle for her flight to Argentina, but before her flight we walked down the Champs Elysees. I went in Louis Vuitton for the first time, it was pretty cool but I don't care much for that stuff. Also went into Laduree's yumm.
Another big visit was to Bruxelles, twice. First time for the Rotary convention. Over 300 exchange students there. It was crazy…awesome. Then again with my family. Then this past weekend we went to the oceannnn. Near Nieuwport (Dutch area!). It was very nice. Except that I only got to spend less than a day there because I had to stay home for a Rotary orientation Saturday, all day. :( Other than that I've been doing a bunch of things with my family, museums and things of the like. I started school last week. Oh lord. My first day was rough. It really shook me. But my second day was pretty okay, I met up with a Belgian girl I had met previously and all of her friends and now in my second week am starting to feel pretty good. I already understood about 90% of what my family said to me, but at school it's a lot different. Obviously, the teachers speak crazy fast and I didn't catch a lot at first. But now it's better and it's a looooooot better when they write on the board.
Anyway, that's about all I have to say. We'll see when my next will be ha ha
