That doesn't translate well on google translate for all of you, but it means "I don't want to" basically... More like, no motivation... The reason that is the title of my post is because right now I'm freezing cold because I just had to bike home in the rain. So just a tiny little update. MY DUTCH TEST IS SATURDAYYYY!!! It's a listening and reading test and I think it's gonna be okay... At least I hope so. So far I've been studying like every day and speaking all dutch so I guess that's okay... Too bad it's not a speaking test, that might be easier. Rightt? But other than that it's just normal things going on right now. Going to school, biking, going out on the weekends, in three weeks or so we have vacation againnn! And this time we're going skiinggg! On the 5th we are going "practice skiing" with the family we are going with, so that should be really fun. And nice to see how long its been since I've skied... (PARENTS: I CANT REMEMBER HOW LONG ITS BEEN).
What else... well now I'm learning to dance! Kind of.. haha. Every Saturday they have this thing called soiree in the city, which.. oh wait that's an english word too isn't it? Well it's a dancing thing. Because lots of kids in Steenbergen take dancing lessons, and soiree is like a time to practice them, but without the instruction and with music. So they play all kinds of songs and if you know how to do the dance that goes to whatever beat it is then you can dance! They also have like modern music playing, not just like.. old waltz music or what you normally think of. They have both, so that's kind of nice. So I've been going there, and I'm kind of being taught a little bit... but obviously it's not really a quick thing to learn, but it's still always fun to go to.
Tomorrow we have a really short day at school because there is a teacher protest sort of thing so a lot of teachers aren't coming to school tomorrow and a lot of kids don't have school tomorrow.. so yeah! haha
I don't know what else I've been doing lately.. just going to school and stuff like I said. So yeah. Wish me luck with my dutch test!

I have my Dutch Language test at the end of the month, on the 28th so wish me luck! I think it will be okay though. It's a listening test, and I'm doing really good at that. Not bragging at all, but my dutch is getting good. I mean, you know you're doing something right when people stop answering you in English when you speak. Dutch people are always really impressed when you speak Dutch, because they always try to learn other's languages, like German or French or English, but when you take the time to learn their language they really appreciate it. So now when I speak dutch people are happy for me that it's coming along so well. In Steenbergen a lot of people take dance classes, like Samba or the foxtrot or waltz, and then there are, well I'm not sure what to call it in English, so "Dance nights" that they play music and you can practice dancing and what have you. And it's a really fun atmosphere, and I was there the other day, and talking to some new people and they always ask how long you have been here, and then are so impressed to see how much dutch you've learned in such a short time. It makes me feel really proud of myself too. It's such a good feeling to have someone say that to you, wow! Your dutch is so good! So. I think that's everything for now!
