For starters, new vlog: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FD7W5ypyR04&feature=channel_video_title
So Rotary Exchange students REALLY like to make facebook groups. I think I'm in at least 5! Today I happened to be scrolling through the group "You know your an exchange student when.." when i happened upon this very accurate description of exchange students.
"The Exchange Student (Exchangius Studentidos): The exchange student is a rare and beautiful animal, which lives in all parts of the world. It's easy to spot an Exchangius Studentidos because of an insane amount of bracelets and because it never truly fits in with the surrounding environment (somehow it always manages to be different even though it is trying to fit in). The exchange student is rar...ely seen in day light, it is mostly nocturnal. Because of this people often think the exchange student uses most of its time sleeping, this is however not true. It is very fond of cameras, skype, and alcohol. It is an EXTREMELY social animal, which when you put into a group of non-exchange students has a tendency of raising the mood and noise level of the group. If you wish to see an exchange student, a good place to look is in the streets after midnight, preferably close to local bars or clubs. The exchange student seems to be well at home in these places. It has been observed that when exchange students are gathered in a group (which occurs very often), that the chance of yells, screams and loud laughing is increased by 97%. These groups of exchange students have a rather amazing skill. Whatever place they go to, be it a bus stop, a small bar or a fancy club, they always make the party, and seem to get the attention from all non-exchange students around, even though they are not really aware of it. They will 9 out of 10 times also drink intoxicating amounts of alcohol, and when this happens there is no telling what will happen next. The exchange student seems to show an abnormal amount of pleasure when doing things it is not allowed to. This might be because it is an extremely free animal, but is always caged by the rules of the society that surrounds it. The exchange student is almost impossible to tame, and has little care of what others think, because it is always out of its natural habitat and knows it never really fits in anyways. It is not rare that the exchange student changes mate, it has many times been seen changing mates several times per night. Contrary to popular belief the exchange student is a very intelligent being, which often speaks two or more languages. It has been reported though that it has a huge vocabulary of random words in many different languages, and it is very good at learning to trash talk in new languages. Through all the studies of the exchange student, we have found that the only thing that seems to drive them, and that they care about, is just having the best time possible. NOTICE: Upon approaching a group of exchange students be prepared for memory loss, a lot of laughter and an empty wallet."
And while I'm in the posting mood I might as well throw this in as well.
"URBAN DICTIONARY: FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT: Most awesome person you will ever meet. Exchange students willingly decide to get off their asses, leave their home country, and go see the world. For that reason, they should be given a helluva lot of credit. Usually, a foreign exchange student will have a funny accent and not speak your language very well. This is all the more reason to hang out with t...hem, because everything will suddenly become that much more hilarious. Also, they are generally young people, and have the tendency to be extremely good looking. In conclusion, mad props to all exchange students out there Damn, look at that hot new foreign exchange student! I can't understand a word they're saying, but they sure seem pretty freaking awesome.."
Yeah, exchange students rock ;)

The title really says it all. I moved last Thursday and i couldn't be happier. I absolutly love my new host family, the Ahrens. My mom Dagmar is super easy to talk to and shes always there if i need to. She also just really cool about everything! Freya is my older sister, she's 17 and she's so awesome! last year she went to Mexico so she really understands what I'm going through. She's SO helpful and also just a great friend/sister/person! Both Dagmar and Freya really help with my German, they understand that I need help sometimes and they make learning fun by giving me words of the day! I don't see much of my host dad, Peter, because he's at work most of they time, but he's nice too! I have 2 younger sisters, Theda is 15 and Merle is 13. Theda is super cool! Last Saturday her, Freya, and I went to a ball and we hung out most of the night since neither of us can really dance (And when i say "can't dance" i mean like couples ballroom dancing,because of course i can break it down ;)) Merle is only 13 but she looks and acts like she's at least 15!! She's cool and nice too! (really this entire family is just super cool and nice!!) She let me chill in her room with her and her friend and watch Harry Potter in german! So awesome! OHHHH and they have the sweetest dog named Kaya :D So that's pretty much all i have to say for today!
XOXO That Foreign Exchange Girl
