"Um, Dois, Para Trás, Para Frente"

Soo, I said I would write whe I had my first ballroom lesson and now I am.... 2 days into the new school week Im gonna go for Hip-Hop later :) Yayyy,.... But back to Ballroom!
It was in my school in one of the Gyms and it seemed as if no one was going to come, but it turned out that the most people were just late (we are in Portugal, right? ;P). The teacher was a downright Austrian, which was funny because allthough he said he lived in Portugal for 15 years now, the Austian side - and accent - was still very much seeping through :) I thought he was the Austrian version of Mr. Bean as he also had some similarities with the former :) In the end it was about 30 people ad allthough there were a few women more then men we all had fun. And the first lesson was obviously NOT just a 'get to know eachother thing' as we learend basic steps for Waltz, Rock-n-Roll and a Quadrille, a really exhausting experience. I never had to stand up straight for 2 hours, at least i think not as straight because I was nursing a backache for the rest of the evening.
I still dream of "um, dois, para trás, para frente"...
In other news.... OH, I am now waiting for Amanzon to finally send me Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and waiting is soooo annoying as I have noted once again! Urghhhh, I just want to finish the story! Yesterday I read the end of book number 6 and once again realised how sad the part where Dumbledore dies is! Wahhhh! :'(
Also, I am now regularly watching the Hurley Pro 2011 professional surfing competition in Tresltles! It's awsome! My favourite surfers up until now are Josh Kerr, Owen Wright and John John Florence and it's a really good comperition!.... Sadly through school and other extracurricular activities I miss some of the heats
Hope to speak soon :)

Really long Time, no Speak!

Hey People!
Don't know if anyone missed me, but I do hope so. Loads of catching up to do!
Now a new school year has started, I am now in yr 11 (scary, i know, only 2 years to go!) and this is really getting hard work. First math test behind me, I'm thinking, oh S**t! Final year of GCSE's was bound to be hard, but never had expected this!

'Nough bout school! Hope you had a good summer? I did anyway... visited Germany (Loads of family, I think we were 9 'kids'... It was deff's lots of fun!) and France (Hossegor, right by the sea, i loved it!) for a short time, then had a firend with me for a week. Got a LOT of reading done too! Amongst my new favourite books belong deffinightely the Sookie Stackhouse novels(!!) finally began reading them after 'falling in love' with the series True Blood ;) I think I read the first 8 books within about 2 weeks, it is soooo addictiveee! I really like both the series and the novels, even though many people see it in a black-and-white kid of way. Sookie Stackhouse is for me an source of endless laughter and her adventures never get boring. The series is the same way, with slight alterations of the story - against which I until now have nothing bad to say - it is an amazing, adreanaline throbbing adventure that you never want to stop (kind off like 'V' itself, if you know what I'm talking about).
Then another book series which I have actually owned for at least 7 years but never before attempted to read. Only after I was lured into the films - which are also unbelivably good - did I start to read Harry Potter. Most of you will find this ridiculous but, you can be sure of it, I regret having waited so long! Harry, Hermione and Ron are just such a brilliant tripplet of friends, I don't want to stop reading about their growing up.
I wont even mention all the films I watched over the holidays because it would be ridiculous.
I am really happy to be back to seeing my best friends every day even though I could do with out some of the lessons and the homework (like Harry) and I am really happy to say that I am going to start modern and ballroom dance lessons in the next week!
Hope I will be able to come back here more often again, I've really missed it! X
