Christmas morning was really relaxed, we all were awake about 12 and started to unpack all our presents. Tom, Ryan and David got a lot of cool stuff for me, - making me pretty happy! I got different kind of things for basketball, some cloths, cologne, an awesome Detroit -photograph.
Other than that we had a nice overall day including an awesome dinner - ham, mashed potatoes, noodles and vegetables. It was delicious!
Right after the Christmas day I kinda had my late Christmas present. The NBA game Miami HEAT- Detroit Pistons! That was without any doubt one of the biggest highlights for me ever since I saw LeBron James who is my absolute favorite player and idol! David and me saw an awesome game with surprisingly the better end for Detroit which came away with a win! It was an unique experience for me and I was able to take some great pictures.
All in all we had a fantastic evening which I probably hardly won't ever forget because seeing my idol means a lot to me!
The next big date was the New Years Eve of course. David and me decided to spend the night with Alex, Eric and some other friends. It turned out to be better than I expected. We had a fun time, and then the new already appeared. It's just crazy how fast time passes. Now almost half of my high school year is over. As I look back I only see awesome experiences and moments. New York - Chicago - Detroit - New Orleans are the big cities I have seen so far. I'm sure there are more to come. Also I have made a lot of friends and met so many new people. Experiencing another culture and way of living is outstandingly impressive. A big thank you to my family back in Germany who made this possible as well as my host parents in the United States who are doing an awesome job. I'm just thankful for everything so far. Hopefully the second half of my year is going to be as great as the first one!

I'm pretty busy with Basketball because we are practicing everyday including Sunday. In school we are going to take our final exams in two weeks.
Weather-wise it is still awfully cold and we still have got a lot of snow outside.
I guess that's it from me right now! Take care guys and as always - stay tuned and patient. Updates will come!
