Starling

Still Connected

Ohoh, I have Internet here too, using my laptop. For once, my laptop is on the right side of 'Only a few computers can connect to the WLAN', but I haven't had much time, so this update will be very short. I'm at Altenberg, and surrounded by Language Assistants from such places as Edinburgh, Nova Scotia, and just-around-the-corner-from-where-I-live (who is also going to Schleswig-Holstein).

Socialising is tricky, however. So many people to talk to, and yet I never seem to get to talk to many. Not even the Schleswig-Holsteiners. Well, we'll have plenty of time for that later. I could socialise with the 3 guys in my room, but I don't think we have much in common, and none of them are from the right part of Schleswig-Holstein. I get on far better with the girls, and they're in a seperate block, hence at dinner, the tables were all moreorless one gender or the other, which I haven't seen since Secondary School.

I'll go into more detail later perhaps. In other news, I'm going on a staff outing on Friday with the Voss-Gymnasium staff to get to know them.

I'm finding this English keyboard very confusing, as I'd just gotten used to the German one. Maybe I'll switch settings...
