Los Angels

Hey!
I´m sorry for not posting for so Long. But know School is over, I have exactly one month left until we meet again and I´m just back from California so this is worth a post.
The past week wa probably one of the best.
I had so much fun, meet a lot of awesome new people and enjoyed an awesome city!
Í could try to discripe here, what Los Angels is like but it will never do it even.
It was surprisingly really clean and full of different plants. Also, a lot of asian and southamerican people seemed to live there. I think the best part of the trip where Santa Monica and Venice beach.
I had a blast and a really good time andI will miss the people I met there a lot. I hope I will be able to travel back to that city again because it was defenitly worth it!!
lot´s of love,
Femke

Prom

Hello!!
 
Last weekend was the Prom 2014 at Central Highschool. I went there with a bunch of girls from my school and both of my "Sisters" came over before because it is such  big deal here.andie just got a new puppy(Macie), which is the cutest thing on earth!! 
Our Group went to a park first to take some pictures and we went to a Italien place for supper afterwards. We had the Prom in our School, wich mde it very cheap for all of us. Some scool are going to a Hotel, wich raises the ticket Prices on around 100$ !!
 Every year, it´s the Juniors Job to decorate the school an this years theme was "heaven on earth".
Prom lasted from 8 till about 11 a clock and everyone spends weeks of preapearing, finding hair and Makeup and of course the Dresses.
After prom, everyone goes home, changes cloth and goes back t School to celebrate postprom
That means, that everyone get´s food and drinks for free and you got presents there too. Also, there was an hypnotist, photoboth and other oppoturneties to spend your time other than getting drunk, which is a big problem here, since the drinking age is 21.
Hugs& Kisses




My world´s favourite Italien Marta
