New bed September 7, 2008

Posted by Anders in Friends.

I got myself a new bed! It’s two times wider than the old one and it is really soft and comfortable, exept I had trouble sleeping on it last night, but that’s because I have to get used to it. Yesterday we drove out to Ikea, a swedish furniture store, where everything is painted blue and yellow for the swedish colors, and we went looking for a loong time to find a new bed. FInally I found one and it is really good.

Last night we also had a little movie night. We were only four people and actually we had no alcohol involved! We just had fun together, playing Guitar Hero and watching a movie, nothing fancy. It would be really fun to do that again some other time.

Busdrivers in Denmark September 4, 2008

Posted by Anders in Busdriver, Culture.

I’m admitting it. Even though Denmark is considered the happiest country in the world, a lot of us are running around unhappy. Especially in the morning. I take a bus to school every morning. No, it is not a schoolbus, but a public bus where not only students (although a lot of them are students) but everyone can use. Something I have noticed is that they do not smile at all. Most of them are just sitting there looking like they hate it and can’t stand their job. They probably feel that way, anyway.

Sometimes I can understand, though, why they look so mad. It must be a really crappy job to drive around a bunch of annoying students. There is one bus that transport mainly students from the trainstation out to the schools lying in the outer rim of the city. The busdrivers get yelled at, students provoke them, and some are just rude to them, but still, if they were just smiling to them just once in a while then they would probably give a smile back, other than all that other stuff.

So if any busdrivers read this, remember, smile at the passengers and they will probably smile back!

Wow, It’s been a while since I’ve been writing on this blog. So much happened, though. I’ve started new school, made new friends and everything. I am not gonna tell everthing what happened since I last wrote on here, so I have decided to write from now on when something interesting is happening.


Back in little Denmark July 16, 2008

A lot of things have changed back here, just as I predicted.! It was really weird being here, seeing people that I haven’t seen in over a year. Me and my friends had a party the same day I arrived, and I got pretty drunk, even though I didn’t drink very much. That’s because I haven’t had anything alcoholic while I was in USA. My friends have also changed. They have done a lot of stuff, gone clubbing, wild partying, that I even haven’t tried yet, since I wasn’t able to do that in the US. But they probably think I have changed too, though.

There has also been changes in the close family. First, my dad got a girlfriend. I was very excited to meet her, and I was not dissapointed. I can really see why my dad likes her. Before I met her, I asked my family about her, and they all liked her very much. I really do like her too. She is always happy and she always has a big smile on her face, and I like that. She even likes to joke around, and I have laughed a lot with her, even though I’ve only known her for a couple of weeks.

I am happy to be home, but I am definately gonna miss my American family, Norton High, my American friends, and overall the life in America. It has been fun to try and live as an American for a year, and I have definately learned a lot.

Going back soon July 2, 2008

It is kinda weird.

In 4 days I am going to say goodbye to my life here in America, goodbye to my family, leave everything behind. I have already said goodbye to my friends, exchanged emails, addresses and what have you. I am completely booked up until I leave, since there is so much to do before I leave and so little time.

I wont say that I don’t wanna leave America, but on the other hand it’s gonna be really sad when I leave. The friendships I’ve made, my new family, will be with me forever. When I go home I will still be able to talk to them, and hopefully keep in contact for a long time. I love all my friends, and my family, and it is gonna be really sad to say goodbye to them.

On the other hand, I still have friends waiting for me at home, looking forward to see me, and it feels really good that there is people that actually care about me and looking forward to see me again. I can’t wait to see them either, and it’s gonna be so nice to see them again.

In a way it really sucks emotionally to be a foreign exchangestudent. First, you leave your family, friends and pets for a whole year, and miss them a lot. Then you create new friendships while you are away, create new bonds, which you have to leave after a year. I don’t say that I regret being a foreign exhcangestudent. I will never regret at all that I took this decision, but let me say, it is very emotional to be a foreign exchangestudent, especially now, when I am about to say goodbye to everybody, and they all want me to stay here. This leads me back to my first point. 

It is very hard to leave everyone, and one part of me would give everything to stay another year here in Ohio, but the other part of me can’t wait to get home to see my friends, family, and of course my cat. I have missed that little furball so much, that it is not even funny. He was my buddy before I left, and I really hope he still remembers me when I come back. He would always sleep in my chair right besides my bed, and he was just overall my buddy, even though I could get really mad at him, like the time he had laid on my black shirt so it was full of white cat hair, or the time he had peeed on my pants, and I had taken them on when they had dried, and when they got wet again, it smelled like I was the one who had pee’d my pants.

This will probably be my last big post, before I leave, since it seems I have so much to do before I leave. I mean it is already wednesday today, and I leave sunday morning, and before that I have to squeeze in a Cedar Point trip (tomorrow), 4th of juli celebration, visit at the Vaill (really nice teacher couple), get family photo taken, use my giftcards, and a lot of more stuff. I am basicly completely booked before I go back.

By the way I am arriving at the Copenhagen Airport at 9:00 am monday morning, just so you know.

Vacation with my dad June 15, 2008

Posted by Anders in Baseball, Cleveland Indians, Exchange student, Exchangeprogram, Hostfamily, Niagara Falls, USA.

My dad is going home tomorrow, and it has been a quite busy week. We didn’t have enough time at all, and with me being bit by a dog the second day he is here, we have gone through a lot. Especially because the dog didn’t have its vaccinations in place, and we were worried sick that I might had rabies (hundegalskab). The family who owned the dog had already put it to sleep, and the vet had harvested some brain tissue, so they could test the dog for rabies. Luckily the dog didn’t have rabies, so I didn’t need to go through the extremely painful rabies shots.

We also showed my dad the Niagara Falls. We were supposed to arrive there at 4 pm, but for some reason we got there at 10 pm. As soon as we got out of the car, it started to rain really bad, though, and we all got soaked. It quickly stopped raining, though, and we took some more pictures of it. Then it started raining badly again, and we decided to go to the car. We were on the Canada side of the Falls, so afterwards we went up to the sparkling tourist city right next to the falls, and spent a couple of hours up there before we went home.

My family also had a big surprise for me. They actually took me to see a Cleveland Indians Baseball game. I was so happy to see them for real, and I had a really good time. I was the only one who knew what was going on, since nobody else knew much about baseball, but they were happy that I had a good time. I was really getting into the game too, even though they lost, but that’s okay, it was a pretty eventful game anyway. Especially when Grady Sizemore scored a Homerun and everyone was on their feet, including me.

I hope my dad had a good vacation here, I certainly enjoyed having him here!

I got bit in the balls. >.< June 8, 2008

Here’s the story. Me and my dad, who is visiting from Denmark right now, went down the street to look at a Jeep Wrangler that was for sale. The guy and his dog was standing outside, and he saw us as we approached the car in the driveway. He came up to us as did the dog, and he started looking at me. Suddently he sniffed me down there, and before I could react, he fucking bit me in the dick!! God it hurt, but luckily he didn’t get to bite too hard, and it is a lot better now. But still it hurt. I think I should have got that car for free, since his dog bit me.

Another fish died May 28, 2008

Posted by Anders in Uncategorized.

Yesterday at 12:02 in the night, I flushed one of my fish in the toilet. It had been sick looking all day, and when I woke up and saw it was dead, it got it’s little funeral. So time of flush: 0:02!

Now I only have 2 fish left from the Cherry Blossom carnival, and I am actually surprised they lasted this long.

New York May 28, 2008

I went to New York this weekend. It was one of the most amazing cities I’ve ever seen. First we took the ferry to see the Statue of Liberty. After we saw the Statue, we took a tourbus around Downtown Manhattan. We saw all the famous buildings, and drove through all the famous neighbourhoods, like Soho, Chinatown, Greenwich Village and Litttle Italy. I could really image myself living in New York. I really like the big city life. That’s why I want to have an apartment in inner Copenhagen when I get old enough to move out of my dads.

I got some souvenirs, too. Of course I have to have one of those I “heart” NY T-shirts, and I got myself a model of the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, plus a little pen where there is moving stuff inside it. I have a whole collection of those!
