First Day... of School

I usually dread starting school again, but something about being the new kid makes it more interesting. My first day was great and went a lot better than I thought. I walk into the class and all eyes are on me cause it's obvious I'm not from here. I sit down and quietly observe the class and everyone seems to be close friends with each other. Every time a different student walked in they all yelled and laughed. Later during homeroom I introduced myself in English and then in Croatian. I got applause from them so I'd say I'm pretty in there ;). But everyone was super friendly they helped me learn the schedule, asked me about myself, and also helped teach me new words in Croatian. My favorite part of the day was when homeroom ended and one by one people came up to me shook my hand and introduced themselves. It was a funny process of shake, their name, my name, I repeat their name back to them, and then I forget it and shake the next hand. Here they take a total of 15 classes so it's kinda overwhelming. I take English, Croatian, Math (Trig), Physics, Chemistry, Art history, Music history, History, Geography, Ethics, Logics, Sociology, Phycology, Spanish, and Gym.

I've been in school for about 4 weeks now and I'm glad I was able to charm these people and I have made some awesome new friends. We hang out at cafes a lot and they offer to help me with classes. When I get time I can't wait to actually go dancing with them. My Croatian has been improving with them and I also started language school 2 weeks ago.
