Seemingly Pointless Post

I have not been a consistent blogger by any means. 

Blaming my busyness doesn't satisfy my obligation to blog. This is where I make an analogy about my blog being a living thing, all living things need to eat to live, and if I don't "feed" my blog it's going to die.  
The consequences are drastic. 

So on this wonderful snow covered Christmas day, I will give to you, readers of my blog, a song for your listening. It's what I'm listening to while my host sisters listen to their music, my host parents take a nap, my host brother plays his Harry Potter 7 computer game, and I wait for my family back home to wake up and get on Skype.  

And the angel said to them, 
“Fear not, 
for behold, 
I bring you good news of great joy 
that will be for all the people."

Tomorrow, Friday the 3rd (ten days off...), I will be writing my first Klausur in German. Klausur is roughly translated as "big, nasty essay test" or "headache." Take your pick. Unfortunately, I must take both. My actual first Klausur was in English class, so that doesn't really count...
I'll be writing for my History course, and the subject is the "1848/49 German Revolution." I've been reading in English to prepare myself better on the material, aber Ich auf Deutsch schreiben muss.  It's going to be interesting to see how I do.

We had out first freeze last week on Thursday, and unlike Oklahoma, it has stayed at or below freezing since then. I wasn't in shorts and a T-Shirt three days later. In fact, I don't think I have worn shorts since the beginning of September. I miss Shorts Friday.
We had our first snow on Monday this week, and unlike Oklahoma, we've still had school despite the fact that there is snow on the ground.  Crazy, huh?

We are finished with Badminton in sport. I am incredibly grateful.
