I’m Lorenz from Germany. I’m currently attending a “Gymnasium”, a German high school. My favorite subjects are Biology, Geography and PE.
When I’m not at school I’m almost the whole time in a climbing gym. Climbing is a huge part of my life, I train three to five times a week but unfortunately it’s not possible to sleep in the gym so I usually have to ride my bike 30 minutes to the gym. I do lead climbing as well, but I’m not able to go lead climbing as often as I want to, because my dad works in another city and that’s why I haven’t got a belayer all the time. But if I get the chance to do lead climbing, I immediately take it.
When I’m not climbing, I like to read books. My favorite books are thrillers. I can’t get enough of them. I also love freeskiing and surfing, but I neither live in the mountains nor at the coast, so these are just holiday hobbies, but I love them anyway. I’m mad at sports but I also like to relax or just to lie in my bed and watch movies or series. Sometimes I play PlayStation in the afternoon, when there is nothing important to do.
Moreover, I love to sleep as long as possible. Even in the afternoon I’m a little bit sleepy, but I think that’s just normal for my age.
Another big part of my life are my friends. We see each other every day at school and sometimes in the afternoon. In the summer we often go to a little lake near our homes and in the winter, when it’s too cold for the lake, we do movie nights. However, we have a lot of fun together.
Another interest of mine is cooking, but I have to say, I’m not very experienced in cooking yet and I only cook when I want to. When I’m cooking I usually cook with my grandma, she’s the best hobby-cook I know. My favorite dishes are everything with shrimps, pasta with a lot of cheese, pizza quattro formaggi and the Schnitzel of my grandma. If you want, I could cook an original Schnitzel of my grandma when I’m with you.
The rest of my family is very lovely too. I have a little sister. My mom works a lot but we often go for a walk with our dog together. Besides, we have two cats and two rabbits. I only see my dad at the weekend, he’s a doctor and he works in another city. I live with my mom, my sister, my dad, the dog and the two cats in a house a little bit outside of the city center.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and also get to know the American way of life, the country and the people. Besides I’m very thankful, that you let me stay with you without even knowing me personally.
