So today was an interesting day! For some reason, many things happened to occur that were kind of hilarious. After my first class, I had lunch. After that Nicole, Kara, and I headed back up to the room to grab our stuff for the next class, but as we opened the door, we saw a HUGE wasp on the window. Like massive. And I know you will think I am exaggerating, but it was a monster wasp. And we did not know what to do, because we were terrified of getting stung. So we decided to go down to Student Services and see if our lovely RDs could help us. When we told Dojina, she said, "Oh dear. No, you must wait for someone to help you with that. I will get Jacque to help you." So after class, I went back to student services and met Jacque, who Dojina told me speaks no English. So. I'm thinking "Ok, that's fine. I'll get by on what little Dutch I know."
So after that Kara, Nicole, and I planned out the entire semester and where we want to travel and when. Here is my list so far of where I might be going every weekend: Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Belgium, then our group trip to Croatia. After Croatia, Kara and I want to split our travel break in half and go to Romania and Budapest. Weekend after that is Prague, then Austria. Then Vanessa and I want to skip 2 days of class to spend 5 days in Paris....love it. Then Germany, and then our group trip to London followed by the second extended travel break which we are spending in Ireland and Scotland. The last weekend will either be Switzerland or Germany again. And this is all still tentative. So, this is my semester of AMAZING! Hahaha. After we planned, which took forever, I found Huber and asked him to put air in my bike tires. He said sure that he would meet me in 5 mins. So I go to the bikes and wait for him. And wait. And wait. And he's not showing. Rene walked by and made fun of me waiting like a loser. Haha. Turns out I am really dumb. I though he had like a small, hand-held, air pump. You know, the kind everyone has in their garage? No. He has like an air machine that inflates tires. And I did not know. So they were waiting around for me, and I was waiting around for them. And I am an idiot. But they thought it was funny.
So its my birthday tomorrow! And we are leaving for Amsterdam! I am so excited!!!! I will update you guys on what Amsterdam was like on Monday or Tuesday when I am back and caught up with my homework!!!!
