For those who understand that tea is the answer to all of life's questions. For those who use tea leaves. For those who use teabags. For those who haven't quite mastered the art of 'the perfect cuppa'. For those who just like tea. This is for you.
"wow, cool! :) I didn't know what flag football is until now. I just looked it up and saw that Austria even has 5 teams, but it's not popular here. We don't have homecoming but we have a lot of proms. If you buy a ticket you can go to…"
"oh, don't worry, i totally understand :)hmm, this week i signed up for this thing called powderpuff, its flag foot ball for girls, but practice only lasts a week and we only have one game. its kind of a tradition that the school does to get…"
"yeah, feel the same way about spanish, haha XDyeah, its true that there are a lot of teachers, but i have to get a job where i can work with people and be creative. i could never be something like an accountant or a surgeon or something like that.…"
I love to read and even though I'm from Austria and speak German I read all my books in English because that's just another obsession - getting better at the English language. I would like to read more but there a few things that need to be done like eating and drinking and going to school, so I can't read as much as I would like to. I like going to school because I'm a curios person and always want to know more. That doesn't mean I'm a good student though ...
Another thing I love are TV series like Fringe, Eureka, Psych, How I Met Your Mother, ... there are to many to list here! :)
My taste in music changes all the time but right now my favorite band is Marianas Trench.
You must think that I'm pretty lazy, judging by my hobbies but I'm not actually. I love to ride my bicycle or go jogging. I also go to the gym very often.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
hmm, this week i signed up for this thing called powderpuff, its flag foot ball for girls, but practice only lasts a week and we only have one game. its kind of a tradition that the school does to get everyone excited for homecoming. i'm looking forward to going with all of my friends this year. do you have homecoming at your school? its a dance to welcome everyone back to school.
i'm also getting ready for halloween. I'm in art club and we're making a haunted house this year, so its a lot of work, but its really exciting. everyone in the club is making their own robot costumes and i just started mine yesterday XD maybe i'll post pictures on here when its done, i think its going to look really cool. hopefully i'll finish in time. do you celebrate halloween in austria too? or is it just an american thing? do you like scary movies and stuff like that?
yeah, its true that there are a lot of teachers, but i have to get a job where i can work with people and be creative. i could never be something like an accountant or a surgeon or something like that. there are just too many rules to follow and its boring.]
that sounds awesome! i love teachers who make the class fun :D this year my spanish teacher is sooo awesome. we play a bunch of games in class that help us learn the vocabulary, so we don't have to study that much. last year my teacher was horrible. all we did was go over the previous night's homework during class and get more homework D: we didn't do anything interesting at all.
yeah, that sentence was perfect XD don't worry though, i'll probably understand even if you do mess up.
that sounds pretty interesting. i wanted to go into medicine too, but i was always really bad at math, and once we started learning about molecules i hated science, so i don't think thats going to work out haha. i'm not totally sure yet, but i think i want to be an english teacher for high school kids. i think it would be good because i want to have a family when i get out of college and if you're a teacher you get summers off, so i would be able to spend time with my kids. I also really like art and i would love to do something in that field, but its very competitive and i'm afraid that i won't be able to make it.
omg, a whole school for nerds <333 i'm totally jealous XD yeah, my cousin goes to school in europe, so her school system is a lot like yours, she went to some kind of engineering school. so do you know what exactly you want to be career-wise?
yeah, spring is my favorite too, they'res just so much to look forward too with school ending and everything is growing so.. its just a really hopeful season, i guess.
umm, what specifically do you want to know about school? basically, we start elementary school when we're 5. that starts with kindergarten and then goes to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc grades, up until you get to 6th grade (you'd probably be 11-12 years old then). thats when you start middle school which keeps going until 8th grade (when you're 13-14 years old). in 9th grade, when you're 14, you start high school. your first year is called freshmen year, then its sophmore year, junior year, and senior year. i'm a junior now, so i only have one more year of high school left. after that you go to collage :P
aww, yeah, it really is one of those laugh/cry books <3 umm, i don't know, i haven't really had time to read much... have you read the "uglies" series? its also futuristic. they're a little long, but its one of those books you can't stop thinking about.
hey, i saw your comment on the nerdfighters pen pal group and i think its really cool that you're from austria! your english is really good. i'm from serbia. well, my parents are, anyway, i was born here.
i want to read the mockingjay too! i read the hunger games and thought it was awesome, but the rest of the books are checked out of my library right now D: is it good?
