April showers, bring May flowers

Well April has been an exciting month!

I started surfing this month (I'll try and get pictures tomorrow) and am doing ok.. I'm not amazing, but I manage to stand up, and ride the waves, for a little while anyway (note to self, throw more weight forward and stay lower)

I went to a formatura (graudation party, sort of like prom) last weekend with Flavia, Tine, and Vianey, it was lots of fun.

This past weekend was a holiday weekend. Friday was the formatura, Saturday I went to a birthday party with my parents, and Flavia, and after we went to a movie. Sunday we went to Praia de Forte to visit a friend of theirs, and Monday, relaxed.

School has been normal.. nothing to special

I talked to Thais today and we were planning for my stay in Sao Paulo, I have tickets booked now, only 5 more weeks! Its going to be awesome! I leave here the 27th of May, and leave Sao Paulo the 30th and get home the 31st... not so far away.

Well with a new month, came a new family for me here in Brasil! Right now I'm living with Dona Sandra and her fmaily (the last family of Tine, and first of Vianey) Its great! They're all wonderful, although very early risers... leaving home at 5:50 for school is not something I've ever had to do before!

Last Saturday I went to a 15 anos party; here for a girls 15th birthday its a huge thing, this was for the birthday of Carol, a girl who lives in my first condmiums. I went with Iris, and Yasmin, Elaine, Carol, Lucas, Ivana, Jenner, and Tais were all there as well. It was good fun, I think Tais and I got back at about 5:30am!

Early that day I went to a churrasco for school, it was lots of fun, and I got a chance to tlak to some of the others kids in my class...

Today Flavia, Tine and I went to the theater, for a one-man show about Portuguese, and the history of Brasilian portuguese, I didn't understand everything but it was really good. After I tried to go to another 15 anos (a friend of Flavia) but that didn't go so well.. Right now her and Tine are there and I'm at home...

Well I think Ill pop in my Banda Eva DVD and watch that for a bit before going to sleep...
