a student, a daughter, an older sister, a little monster, crazy for the UK, a pickle person, a night owl, a friend, hardcore, a joker, a little weird,
very friendly, a fangirl, grumpy in the morning, a hopeful photographer, a dancer, good with children, bad with left-traffic, clumsy, a party girl,

accidently taking 5 m&ms out of a packet of the same colour, sunshine blinding me while I'm driving, driving my car alone so I can sing along to my favourite songs without bothering anybody,
when the music in restaurants is exactly loud enough to still hear it and still be able to speak to each other,
the sound of the tumbledryer, McFly, getting mail, shopping online, karate battles with people that don't know squat about karate,
making pokemons out of tinfoil and have battles, a heavy wallet, doing random cartwheels, living after your horoscope,
happymeals, sudoku, twister fries, giving advice even though I never really take any advice from others, murder documentaries,
taking silly quizes from magazines, Simon Mitchell's amazing art, telling ghost stories even though I'm the biggest wuss around, my glasses,
schoolparties with old teachers, researching random facts, sleeping in, exploring, Adam from The Struts.

Just as I was about to type up this blog, something AWFUL happens right outside my window.
So whilst I try and get over the shock of that, I'll just tell you what happened this week. Work at school is pretty awesome. There are a couple of new trainee teachers and I am no longer 'the new one'. One of them is actually a Belgium woman called Nathalie who is absolutely hilarious. Before it was just me boring everyone with my stories about The Netherlands, now it's me and Nathalie boring everyone with stories about The Netherlands and Belgium as we compare absolutely everything.
Anyway, today I was in Year 3 for most of the time because Justin has done something wrong with his neck and now he can't move. He basically walks around like a robot (which is hilarious!) so he could use an extra hand in his classroom. It's so funny that he translates half the things he says to Dutch when I'm around, even when he's not talking to me. For example, he was telling his class a story about his grandmother, then turns to me and says "mijn oma" - it cracks me up! I still did my reading with the two French girls, and a new Turkish girl who I have also taken under my wing. In the afternoon, both Reception classes were going to Primrose Hill to do some bird-feeding and they needed some extra people, so I went with them. The sun was out and it was lovely to be outside! Also, I hadn't been to Primrose Hill yet and the view is stunning from up there!
Just so my teachers know; work is awesome! I definitely recommend any other students who want to go to London next year to contact St Christina's! I am also in a little conflict with myself at the moment - working with these foreign children is so much fun that I don't know if I still want to work with teenagers after this...
Now, I better quickly get on with preparing my room for Friday evening when BFFs Celesta and Caroline will be sleeping over for four nights - CANNOT WAIT!
