Wow. Time really flies by. I've already been here for 2 weeks! But even though it feels like I've just gotten here, it feels like I've been away from home a lot longer than just 2 weeks...

Anyways. I've now a few more photos. Buuut Firefox seem to hate me, so I have to change to Explorer every time I want to upload photos ><'

So I'm gonna go out and take a few more photos, and then put those up tomorrow.

So. Here I am now. In Australia. In Engadine.
And so far, I'm loving it here!

While I'm in Australia, I'll be living with 4 host families- all here in Engadine. And I'll be attending Engadine High, yr 11. I have started school, and the subjects I'm reading are Advanced Maths, Standard English, Biology, Chemistry, Visual Design and Ancient History.
And yes, I do have a school uniform. And yes, I'm wearing a skirt every day now. I'll soon have a photo to prove it to you.

So. Moving on.

My current host family doesn't have any children living at home, which is a huge difference to me- always having lived with my sisters. And I've noticed how quiet a house can be, when there are no other children there who either fight or play music for the neighbours (wow, I can't believe I spelled that right on my first try! 8D) to hear. But I'm not complaining (yet). It's, like I said, a big difference, and it was because I wanted difference in my life that I went on exchange. So mission accomplished! xD

But that's not the only difference I've experienced. My room here is HUGE!! Especially considering to how my room is in Sweden... Though that doesn't say much more than that I'm not living in a cupboard. I haven't got a picture of me in my school uniform, but I do have some of my new room:

.... Ignore the mess. It's gone now. I promise!!

Other things that I'm not used to are that here we keep our shoes on. All the time. Except from when going to bed, or cuddling up in the sofa with a good book, or something good to watch on tv.
And the doorknobs!! They're NOT as I'm used to. You twist them to open the door, not push them down as I'm used to xD
Also we eat a light lung of toast or something like that, and then a real dinner- not milk and cereals for "dinner", as I'm used to, and then "real food" for lunch.

But I'm slowly adjusting to this life, and I think that this will be a great year!
