i am such an idiot

ok dudes, listen up. So not only can't i spell worth shiz (for example, Whales the country? nah. it's WALES abby, duh), but i do the dumbest things. one of my earliest experiences is the time that i told a boy i loved him in the 5th grade: worst experience ever because not only did he laugh at me, the entire population of my school found out. AND i had braces at the time which made it even worse. imagine me as a 5th grader with my jelly pens, braces, and a Presbyterian uniform telling the cutest guy in my grade that I luuuved him.....are you imagining it right now? good. are you cringing as you read this? you better because it was humiliating.
anyways, back to my story. so, my friend Melissa has been staying with me for about a week. she had a train leaving for Prague tonight, so i decided to go to the train station and see her off to the unknown. so, we got to the train station, the train came, i got on the train to help her with her bags and to say goodbye. suddenly, the train started moving and i was freaking out. i was so mad that i said some stuff that i probably shouldn't have said and then sat down by Melissa. we looked at each other and started laughing. luckily the next stop was just 20 minutes outside of the neuch, so i got off and waited fo the train home.
well, that's my story. it's probably not as exciting as i think it is. maybe you liked my 5th grader story better. i guess you'd have to be there.
going to bed. night all ya'll! cheers.

Turkey Day Sans* Turkey

OK OK, I know that this is a little late, but here are some pictures of Thanksgiving in the Neuch. Andres and I decided to make a little dinner for our European friends. I specifically made cranberry sauce and apple pie [which was in a tart part, so I guess it was technically an apple tart...whatevs]. We couldn't find a turkey, so we had to eat chicken instead...typical. It was so much fun! I made everyone say something that they were grateful for in their own language. It was so cool!!! Go American traditions!!!

***Lena Lu***

So it's one of my very good friends birthday today. I wish that I could give her a big hug and kiss, but sadly I'm on the other side of the world. So I guess blogging about her is the closest thing. I've known Lena since the 4th grade. We've had our moments: she thought that I was super annoying in the 7th grade. lols. But we've become the closest of friends and I am so blessed to have her in my life. I miss her so much! So, give a big cheer to Lena!!! I love you baby girl and I hope that you have a wonderful birthday!!!

p.s. photos taken from Lena's facebook by me...
