Today was the final day in Cambridge. We didn't go anywhere in particular, but I enjoyed it.
In the morning, we had the normal lessons and we did an activity in the history class. It was a negotiation between countries after the Second World War. I was representing Germany. Although it was hard to make sense with the other allied forces as we lost the war, I struck Germany with quite a good deal.
We had performances in the afternoon. I performed with Haru and Edmund. It was memorable, playing music in Cambridge.
We got most of the night off for packing our bags (nobody did, we were busy partying!) I have to sleep like right now, to minimise the jet lag!
I miss Cambridge already!
13th August, 2016
It came to the last night at Fitzwilliam College. My luggage needed to get to the original like when I first came. The feeling of before and after is so hard to describe.
Today was the last day at Sawston for teachers, mentors and students. I took a lot of photos with my teachers and friends and saved one teacher's contact to ask her when I got questions. Although my favourite teacher Mr. Andy wasn't willing to give his email to me, he still gave me his contact on LinkedIn. At the science lesson, I finished the final project on eco-island and won prizes! Before I left Sawston on the coach, Mr. Andy walked beside the coach and waved to me with a funny magic hat on. But sadly the owl wasn't there.
In the afternoon, it was so exciting. It was finally the performance day after a month of practise with my friends, Gabriel and Jose. I was scared before I went on the stage, I was so afraid of making problems because many of my teachers and friends were watching my performance. And when I got on the stage, I just got so scared that my hand went shivering. I stood there like a wood stick without gestures, but as I played smoother and smoother, I encouraged myself to play louder and let myself go ahead. My heart beat went slower and slower and I calmed myself down. Facing round of applauses from the audience, I felt delighted as my friends and I were so serious with this show and we succeeded.
Soon it was dinner time; today there were chicken and broccoli which I love to eat. For the last night, our mentors made an activity about Cambridge. And my group and I needed to use our minds to think answers which are facts about Cambridge for the questions. I wasn't really good at this activity so I just sat aside an gave suggestions to my teammates. Although our group didn't win anything, it was still enjoyable to know new facts about Cambridge.
It was a long day to me. My feelings went up and down. I was scared, happy, sad, I don't even know how to tell it! Tomorrow is going to be a big day before leaving Cambridge. So I must retire to bed soon! Time to sleep! Bye!
ALMOST finished now, time flew so fast, I did not even realise that it has already been two weeks! We had our final lessons and had a wonderful concert.
THE lessons were the last ones but they were fun as always. In the English class we had funny arguments with Mr Andy, done our projects with Miss Pippa and acted as politicians in history lessons. I needed to say a big THANK YOU for these teachers who not only did not give us much homework, also, the lessons were fun and exciting.
ENDING the concert by mentors singing and dancing was certainly awesome; we were surprised as well! Our mentors were shocked that we had such talent in music. Overall, it was such a good concert: listening to music produced by both talented mentors and students.
