So I sadly write for possibly the last time, but am happy to report that I passed the class and am now certified in the "lower-intermediate" rank of Czech proficiency. That's a little scary. I didn't think there was any possible way I could pass the exam before I took it, and even afterwards, I thought it would be a miracle if I passed.

The graduation ceremony was in a small chapel in the school (but large enough to fit 200 people probably). We had a nice ceremony in the gorgeous room but unfortunately I forgot my camera. Tonight there is a reception at 6 but most people will be gone already. It's crazy to think tomorrow night I will be back in Omaha. No more smazeny syr (deep fried cheese on a hamburger bun with ketchup, tartar sauce and cabbage-yum!)sadly.

I tried to reserve a room at the Lunik hotel in Prague where the Benaks stayed with the free internet but I'm not sure if I will be staying there tonight or not. They sent me a confirmation email but then sent me a notice that it had been cancelled because I didn't send my credit card number fast enough. But the second email was only a few hours after the first so I don't know. I'm going to stop by tonight and see if they have a room there and if not, I might try the Holiday Inn cuz a girl from class is staying there tonight and she has a 7am flight from Prague tomorrow as well. She's from Brooklyn but goes to Berkley. I wish I had a roster of all the people in this class and where they're from because I'm sure it must be around 20 countries at least. I still can't believe I passed that test. The only thing that worries me is now that I have it, people might think I'm better than I am. I would like to get a private tutor when I get home, maybe Lada or someone. I'm probably coming back next summer for Ross and Katka's wedding. We'll see.
I had better go back to the dorms so I can see some friends off. I don't want them to leave without me getting to say good-bye. I'll probably write one more entry tonight if I can from the Lunik Hotel.
