Wednesday!

School started at 12:30 today!! So I slept in and then I took the bike to school! 🙂

I only had two classes, 7th and 8th period!

7th was really interesting today! We had three guest speakers in class. They were from an organization that prevent people from doing drugs. Two of the people that were speaking had been taking heavy drugs earlier in their life… Both of em were addicted to Heroin. But they had been sober for like 15 months now. But the guy that had been addicted to heroin earlier was still acting weird (after 15months) and his memory is almost gone. He didn’t even remember how he got to our class today or where he was… But they all talked about their early life and childhood and how they got addicted. And it all started with pot and alcohol…. But the guy that was in charge had never even tried alcohol or any drugs ever! It was really interesting!

In 8th we didn’t do anything special (as usual). Haha but it’s very chill :))

It was really hot outside and we practiced in the heat! But it was awesome! We jumped today, and I got a better approach now I hope haha!

After practice we had a team dinner, we all ate so much food! I was about to explode after… After the dinner I just biked home!

Tuesday!

I was off today becuz of PARCC testing and the ACT! They are both standardized tests that I don’t have to take✌🏼️ 

So I woke up at 10ish, so awesome to sleep in😍 Then I made breakfast and just hung around for a bit. 

Later the twins picked me up and we headed over to their mansion and had an after ACT BBQ! There were like 20 people there who all just got out from the ACT except from me and Kris haha! We had a great time, ate a lot of food, played some games and just had fun!

   

Isn’t it huge??☝🏼️

Later Danny took me to practice and later I just went home and had dinner and so! 

Monday!

It was soooo hard to get up this morning… Haha I left my coffee in the machine cuz I was so tired so didn’t even think of drinking it.. But I got to school and me and Kris worked out with weights the first hour!

Today was the ”senior ditch day”, so there were like no seniors at school today!

But all the classes went alright! Nothing special happened! Everybody was talking bout’ prom and so today tho haha!

Practice went well too! We just practiced on our approaches and stuff which I really need to do! It was like raining all day but stopped right b4 practice so that was niiiice! :))

I don’t have school tomorrow 😍 Every Junior takes the ACT and I don’t have to do that!! WEHOOO, sleep in!!

Prom Weekend!

So last Friday was just a regular schoolday but I got out of class at 2 to go to a meet! The meet was in Littleton, south of Denver so it was far away! I only did long jumps this meet cuz the sprints were the day after. It was a hard meet, I think you had to qualify for it… So they didn’t even measure jumps under 19 feet! So I scratched the first one on the board with like an inch.. And the other two were probably like 18, 10″ or something..

Yesterday (Saturday) was a crazy day!! I didn’t even have 5 minutes for myself haha! I woke up at 7 to go to the school cuz I had to get my stuff in my locker… Nathan had a meet at 7 but I just went there to grab my things and then we went home again…. But Justin picked me up an hour later because we were going back to the same meet as Friday! We drove ourselves there! We were running the 4×1 and the 4×2 together! It went alright! But when the girls ran the 4×1, a gust of wind came and a tent came off the ground and collided with the runners!! It was crazyy!!

But later we went home and we didn’t have too much time before prom started. And I got so scared when we came to Denver because there was a lot of traffic! But it got better after a while! I came home at 3:30ish and then I had an hour to get myself ready for PROM! I showered and put my tux on! Later Cooper took me to Angela’s house and pictures! It was an awesome house, so beautiful! We were a group of 25 people ish, and after all the pictures a Partybus picked us up! :))

The bus took us to Denver and a restaurant called Olive Garden! We had dinner there and then we went to Boulder for the actual Prom! We were there for about 2,5 hours and there was a dance floor and and some tables to sit and talk and so 🙂 It was a lot of fun 🙂

The bus then took us back to Angela’s house where everybody had their cars! We went back to Mikey’s house to change clothes! At 12 we went to the YMCA, it’s like a rec center where we had our after prom! The after prom was so much fun!! All the parents and volunteers did such a great job with decorating and setting it all up! They raised $15 000 for the event! And they had prices for worth $25 000!! It was awesome! So we got raffle tickets and stuff and in the end they had the drawings for all the prices! The prices were like iPads, a guitar, a longboard, two bikes, a smart TV and a ton of stuff! I bought with cash that you got there a couple t-shirts, shorts, sunglasses and gift cards! Everything was like free!

I won 50 bucks cash haha so I was happy :)) So there was tons of food ( a chocolate fountain😍), a photo booth, ice skating, a pool and inflatables!! We were there till 4am and after that I went over to mikey’s house for a while and on my way home to my house I facetimed my swedish friend! So I got home at 6 in the morning haha! I was like the only one who wasn’t tired 😂

I don’t have any great pics from the after prom… If I get any I will post them later!

I woke up at 1pm this morning! Then me and Xing went to return the tuxedos! And after that I have just chilled and skyped with some people :))

Thursday!

Nothing special happened in my classes 2day…

But at lunch we went to pick our tuxedos by the mall and we tried them on! They were so nice😍 We tried them on there and they made some final adjustments! 🙂

Then me and Xing went over to my house to drop it off and then go back to school! We were a little late to class but I can’t pick it up tomorrow cuz I have a meet…

We literally did nothing at practice today haha, it was a meet-prep practice so we aren’t supposed to do a lot! But after practice we had a team dinner. There was a lot of food and we had a great time!

Later I went over to Joey’s house because they were having a surprise party for Chad who turned 18 today :)))

Wednesday!

Today was the first day in school for almost like a week! Felt soooo good to be back..!

Bowling went great! It’s so chill to start your day with a bowling class haha 😂

I went out for lunch with my Coordinator Diane! She was in town so we had our ”departure meeting”, about leaving and everything like that! We had a nice talk and we also talked about my Swedish family that will be here very soon!!

Practice went alright! I was very sore from yesterday’s meet cuz I forgot to stretch after ahah, but I’m used to it cause I never stretch…. But I did a couple jumps and one of em went really good so after that I stopped… You don’t wanna have a bad jump as your last jump of the day!

Later I went home and after dinner I stretched a lot haha and I got some lotion that apparently should be very good for soreness! :))

Tuesday!

We all thought it was the Act testing today ( which I will not do) so I stayed home. But apparently that is next week haha so I got marked absent all of my classes and so did Nathan. But I went to school at noon because I had a track meet!

We went to Longmont High School! I was signed up for 3 events this time. Long jump, the 100 meter dash and the 4×2.

My LJ was first and I didn’t do great, my legs were like spaghetti haha and I have no idea why.. I only jumped 18, 1″…

After my last jump, I had to run over to the starting blocks for the 100 meter… Everyone was in their blocks when I came there so I didn’t even have time to set it up which sucked… But coach thought I got like 12,6 or something which isn’t bad at all! And like 10 minutes after that I had my 4×2….  Every event was like right after each other so I was like dead before and after the 4×2. But that was the event that was my best one of the day haha!

By the time I was done, Cooper picked me up and we went to a Boy scout event that was also in Longmont! It was a fundraiser for the Boy Scouts, but it was at a guy called Tebo’s garage. He is SUPERrich haha so he collect cars, and he owns about 300 really old collector cars and his garage is enormous. He wants to make it into a museum but it’s not ready for that yet. So we looked at all of the cars and then we listened to some people holding a couple speeches and so 🙂

Monday!

After breakfast we packed our bags and we left the hotel. We went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo! It was so much fun!

It’s a really big famous Zoo in the mountains with Giraffes, Hippos, monkeys, Lions and Tigers and a lot more! First we said hi to the Giraffes! Giraffes are like my favorite animal, they are so cool! We also fed them with lettuce and it licked my hand… I got tons of pics haha

After that we went to see all the lions and monkeys and stuff! I’m just gonna post a lot of pics haha

The hippos were so cool! She brushed their teeth as you can see above haha

She said they weight about 6000-8000 pounds ( mer än 3 ton!!)

When we were done with the zoo we drove up on a mountain the an amazing view over Colorado Springs!

After that we went home! We went out to my friend Xing’s family restaurant for dinner. It was a lot of food but really good 🙂 I also met him there and we talked for a while which was fun! 🙂

Sunday!

We woke up this morning and had a nice breakfast! After that we went to the ”Garden of the Gods”.

That is a pubic park here in Colorado springs with beautiful red rocks! First we went to the Visitor Center and watched a video about how the rocks formed and stuff! After that we hiked and walked a lot! We took tons of pictures and it was beautiful!!

Later we went to the US Air Force Academy! It’s a huge area like 20 minutes north of here! They checked our trunk and so before we were allowed to drive in to the military area! I’m not sure if I was allowed there because I’m a foreign haha but oh well 😛

I bought a cool sweatshirt!

For dinner we went to a buffet place and I ate way too much, I was about to explode after….

Later

Saturday!

In the morning we had practice. The meet got cancelled due to the weather so practice instead at 8am… We jumped a little a did some drills.

After practice a girl called Meghan hosted a team brunch, so we all went over there after practice and we brought some breakfast items! We made pancakes together and cinnamon rolls and lots of fruits and muffins! It was really fun 🙂

Me and Nathan got a ride with Kris’s hostdad home and we stopped real quick at Walmart! Kris just bought an iPhone 6 so he had to buy a service plan for it these remaining 2 months!

Later I talked to my Swedish parents for a while to catch up with all that’s going on over there! 🙂

Later me Rachel Nathan and Jessica left the house for Colorado Springs! Colorado Springs is a town south of Denver, who is famous for a lot of things! For example the US Air Force Academy is located there!

So we went down there (like a 2hour drive) and stopped for dinner on the way and then we checked in. Later we hottubed and swam in the pool! 🙂
