TB is a disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal. So by swiss law to protect students we did a TB skin test today. It was a bit painful, but what to do.
I am talking about invasion of ants in our kitchen!! We are going to war!
Today these small insects attacked us. They went all over our floor in kitchen and we are sure that they also planned to go on our tables.
In the afternoon our girls Inna and Julia were cooking desserts for the Tuesday get-together with teachers. Unfortunately some sweet liquid or sugar fell on the floor and was unnoticed by the cooks. It attracted these small “evils” to come to our place.
Now the girls are putting all their power and water & soap to get rid of them.
I am sure that we will WIN!!!
Good luck girls 😉
Today there is going to be a Valentine’s dance in school =) Most of us won’t go due a big amount of homework and the end of the marking period is soon, but some of us will still go and enjoy their day. School provides us with the possibility to send a rose and chocolates to people who are important for us :)) On 14th of February they are going to deliver them! Can’t wait 🙂 As all girls I suppose 😉
One week already went since classes started. IB2 girls are having MOCK exams. It is really a hard time for them so they are studying more intense than always. Good luck girls =) Also our windows are changed by now. Now we live in warm house =) In terms of winter there is no snow in Geneva, but we can go on the ski weekends, so finally we can see snow and feel winter.
Today I finished with all my homework and watched a good film The Bucket List.
Two terminally ill men escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they die.
A good thing is going to happen to our boarding house!!! When we will come back from winter break there will be new good windows =) No more cold floors!!! However, there is a more uncomfortable side of the story: they will start to change the windows on December 16 and everyone is leaving on 18 of December, so we will be moved somewhere else, probably to other boarding houses… but it is only for 3 days. I am happy the windows will be changed!
Last week of school, everyone is very excited about October break :))) This is a week of packing up and exams. Yulia already left today – she is the lucky one! Most of us are leaving on Friday 🙂 I am going to miss them, but 10 days after life will come back to the same place and it will feel as if the holidays never happened… Good luck everyone =)
The weather for the last few days became so horrible! It is cold + it is raining all over the time 🙁
