We are Lien and Valentine. We made this blog to learn our English. We are in the 5th form and have 2 hours of English a week. Our teacher told us to make a 'Learning Portfolio' and one of 'the things to do' is to make a blog. In our blog we are going to tell you about eachother, or about our days in school, at home and...
Lien is a friend of mine. She is a beautiful girl, slim, brown hair and not that big. (But for all the boys, except the gays (no offend), she already has a boyfriend, Glenn) With her you can laugh about the most stupid things, but you can also have a serious talk. She is smart and enthousiastic. She's reliable and helpful. She's kind and generous. She's sweet and funny. She's...
Valentine is a nice, beautiful girl. She has brown hair and green eyes. I met her the 1st of September, she was a new student in our school. Valentine has a good sense of humor and with her, you can laugh a lot. She is very sociable and she can’t stop talking. She is maybe a bit crazy But when you have a problem she’s always there for you.
Normally, Tuesday is not the most cool day of the week. But today it was different. In the morning there was nothing special. But there were two presentations in the afternoon, because of the Mimoweek. The Mimoweek is organised by some fifthformers. The message of the Mimoweek is that they are a lot of people who live in bad situations and we have to try to help them. But I think I'm going to sleep.
In the morning we saw a movie, because of the Mimoweek (Valentine said yesterday what the Mimoweek contians). In the afternoon I went together with the first formers and a few of the fifth- and sixth formers to the bowling.
The last hour of the week was a funny one. For the Mimoweek there was a performance of an Indian dancer. The moves in the dance were very unusual and weird. But it was a meeting with another culture and an interesting experience.
Friday evening I went to the ‘Aspikafee’ of Woumen. I Chatted with friends and had a lot of fun. Yesterday I slept late and in the afternoon I studied for school. Today, I worked again a lot for school. Because we had much homework to do. In the afternoon, I visited my grandparents.
Today it's my birthday It was a sunny day and I got a lot of presents. My friends gave me a clothes tree, slippers, a pyjama, a teddy bear... I've also got chocolate from my boyfriend. And my mother baked a pastry!
Today it was Lien her Birth+1day. We did that because I, stupid as I am, forgot her presents yesterday. We all had a little sac with confetti with us and each for the turn we threw it over her. It was very funny and I hope that Lien liked it as much as I did. (But I think so ) Valentine x.
I'm happy that this week is over. It was such a busy week, I had a lot of schoolwork, I'm very tired. Today I had a test of chemistry and it didn't work at all, I even never been able to start my last excercise! This evening I went to Lien for an assignment for history. But we first went to the 'Job market' in the 4AD for half an hour. After that we took our bikes and rode to Lien her house. Her dog 'Wolletje' is very cute and after he stopped barking at me, we gave him Pizzacookies. I stayed late with Lien, I even had dinner there. It was very good. It was vol-au-vent and fries and lettuce and tomatoes. We've also done a lot for our assignment, it should be almost ready right now. It's an assignment about WWI and King Albert I. We already had a lot of work on it. But like I said, I'm very tired, so I think it's for the best that I'm going to sleep. Valentine x.
Yesterday morning we had our last examinations. In the afternoon I went with Valentine, Lisa, Charlotte and Evy to Gent. We made a lot of fun. Regrettable Valentine must go home at 6 o’clock. I and the others stayed in Gent. We ate a spaghetti and chatted in a pub. Then we slept in the student room of Lisa her cousin. The next morning we returned home.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I did a vacation job in the "Chill’out", a clothing shop in Nieuwpoort. It was the first time that I worked as a shop assistant. It was a new experience.
Friday evening, I and some friends looked at ‘Pinoccio’. I found that the actors played very well! After the show we had some drink.
Today, I went to Roeselare, there I looked with some friends at the movie "knowing". It was a thriller and sometimes I was scared. It was a beautiful movie but the end was disappointing. After the movie we walked in the shopping street.
My grandparents visited us today because it's Easter. And Easter means ... a lot of chocolate! My grandmother and grandfather are still our Easter bunny, because we got a lof of chocolate eggs and other presents of them. It was a comfortable day and we talked and ate a lot!
Monday afternoon I tidied the house and helped my mum with making dinner. Because in the evening my aunt, my uncle and my cousin visited us for my birthday. It was a late "birthday party". We ate eel and as dessert it was chocolate mousse. We used a new recipe and the chocolate mousse was delicious!
On Tuesday it was beautiful weather. I walked with my dog Wolletje and I idled in the sun.
The next day, I, my mum and dad shopped in the Ikea and in the Makro. But we didn’t buy something special.
Because it’s almost summer, I needed new clothes. So, I and my mum decided to go shopping on Thursday in Oostende. There we bought shoes, a sweater, a jeans and a skirt for me. My mum bought T-shirts, sweaters and sandals.
Friday I worked a lot for school. Because next week we have a great test of biology. Also I visited my grandparents.
Yesterday evening I went out to a party, the "Girls night on the beach". The ground was covered with sand and there was also a swimming pool. But I didn’t swim.
Today I slept long. In the afternoon Tine and I interviewed a madam who is derived from Sri Lanka.
On the one side I find it regrettable that the holiday is past but on the other side I would back to school for see my friends that I didn’t see during the holiday!
