Yes, I know it's been a while, but things have been CRAZY here!
So, it started snowing last month. I must've looked so strange running out and trying to catch snowflakes when I was dressed in probably the least warmest clothing I owned LOL! It melted, but it's snowed a few times since and the last snowfall we had was really big (it's currently in the process of melting again).
I had my first ever snowball fight on Thursday. My 'H' group students (11-12 years old). I'd promised them that the first decent snowfall that we'd go and and pelt eachother with snowballs. They had a test on Thursday and I've been pushing them pretty hard. So, after the test we went out and pelted eachother with snowballs for 15 minutes.It was quite fun watching them trying to formulate attacks in English. Not quite so fun when they ganged up on me, but, hey, they had fun and I had fun so that's all that matters! Now they're trying to talk me into making a massive snowman. I've told them not right now. I'll wait a little while longer before I do something like that with them again ^__^.
Apart from that it's been pretty much work, come home, cook, sleep, plan lessons, cook, work, come home... you get the idea.
Oh, and the sun sets at freakin' 3:30pm!!!! And, before this week, the sun hadn't been out in AGES!!! Most of the time it's cold and foggy (or a 'Scottish Mist' as I've heard it called).
I went out tonight. First time I've been out since I got here. I went bar hopping with Agnes...well, a really laid back bar hopping, anyway. We didn't go to that many bars. We were going to go to the Jazz Club but they had some function on so we ended up at this little cottage bar thingy just across the road. Agnes ordered the drinks (as my Polish is next to non-existant. I can say about 10 random words and 2 phrases now). Apparently she told the barmaid that she wanted 'Girly Drinks'. It worked 'cause she came out with these fancy glasses and a drink that tasted like a Tolblerone. After that we got into a taxi and made our way to the bar her fiancee was at. They had pool tables there and I learnt how to play pool ^___^. I won my first game...lost the rest (but I did give one guy a run for his money. I was loosing badly and then came from behind and nearly won!). I tried this apple beer, too,which was REALLY nice.
So, tomorrow is probably going to be spent grocery shopping (MCH is closed for some strange reason so I've got to walk 15 minutes to the next shop and get my stuff there), cleaning, and marking the obscenely large pile of test papers that's sitting on my desk.
Next weekend I'm going christmas shopping in Olsztyn.
Oh, and I'm in the process of planning what I'm going to do for winter break. I'll let you know when I've got a better idea.
