At the beginning of this month I was very busy with musical practice, because the show was getting closer and closer. Then finally on Thursday, March 22nd, we had our first performance in front of the whole high school. I was very nervous, but everything went great.
The same day we had a second performance for the elementary school, which went just as well. Then on Friday and Saturday evening I had another performance and on Sunday. The people really loved the play and a couple of people went twice or even three times. On Friday and Saturday I had a musical crew party afterwards, which was both times a whole lot of fun. My host mum’s mum, her two sisters and her niece came from Perth(!!!) to see me perform. It was such a wonderful feeling to be part of the musical.:-)
Then I also got my prom dress, prom shoes and prom jewelery. In my school they’re getting ready right now for prom. Everything is sooo exciting. On Saturday I’m gonna help making some of the decorations. I also already have a prom date and I’m invited to a second prom in another school. Tomorrow I’m invited to a breakfast in school, because I’m taking a scholarship test on May 5th. I hope I’m going to do well on that one!!
As you can see I’m still having a great time here and I can’t believe that I’ve been here for almost 8 months now. On one hand it seems like I’ve been here forever, because I have so many friends and it feels like this is home for me, but on the other hand I can’t believe that my year as an exchange student is almost over. I don’t know how I’m going to leave everybody. It will be the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, because when I left home I knew I would come back after one year, but when I’ll leave here, I’m not sure if I’ll ever come back.
