Spring in Holland!

​Heey everyone! It is time for an update again. Now I will do my update in English, because I write especially for my American friends ;)

I got home the 15th of January. After Jason, Becky and Eric brought me back home, the Dutch life started to live its life again :p I had to go to school again and I had to get used to speaking Dutch again. After a week I was still thinking in English! It was kind of fun to experience :p From the moment the school started, life was getting back to normal again. I just had to go to school for 4 days a week, and do homework in the evenings again. I went to eat with a few friends from school, to share our experiences about the internships. One of the guys went to Cape Town, Africa, and it was awesome to see his experiences in that country.

A few weeks after I got home I had to do an assessment for my internship. Two teachers were sitting in front of me and asked me a lot of questions about the decisions I made during my internship. After the assessment they told me that I was graded 8 out of 10 for my internship. I was really excited! This is a really high grade for in Holland, and is comparable with a B- in the US grading system, I think. I had an awesome time at Kooima, and I have learned a lot! At the end of the assessment I took a picture with my supervisor. I really appriciate his help and advice on my internship!
