152 days left!

Half of my exchange year has now passed. It is quite strange to think about it, but it is also a feeling that comes with a warmth in my little heart. I realize how secure I now am here in Canada. I do no longer fear for new, strange things because this - this is my reality now. Denmark is a foreign country that I can talk more about than my friends. Canada is my home for 6 months more - and I am going to have the funniest six months I could imagine :-)
When two Australians arrived at my place yesterday here in Oil Springs as an arrival place for them, I realized that their faces were the exact same faces I had 6 months ago. The same confusion, the same excitement, the same feeling. It is quite funny to think back now - to see how much has happened. My first school day, god, how confused I was! I couldn't figure out how to get around on the big school, which is no longer a problem for me. Or the first week where I did not know where to sit at lunch. I remember that very clearly, but that is luckily not a problem anymore, either. But now I start to think "Wait! This means that I have little time left here!" And so I do. But as I mentioned above, I will use this time in the best way possible.
I just wanted to make this blog entry before I am going dog sledding. As I said in my post last time, I am very excited. The people there - the other exchange students - are so incredibly nice, and it is going to be a blast. A cold blast, but a BLAST.

Today I have to follow the World Cup in Handball 2011, where Denmark is in the final against France. I do realize that I just wrote that 'Denmark is a foreign country' for me now, but it IS the finals, and it IS the World Cup, and so I have to. :)

Hugs from me to you, spread the message about love and understanding, and support the Egyptians for their right to freedom!


  1. I couldn't Write better things to describe how I feel about my exchange, but at least we share the same schedule for today =P.
    Good Luck Denmark !

  2. Love your blog! You write really good and I read everything you write. I like that you write in English and I would actually like that better on my blog as well, but then my grandparents wouldn't be able to understand .. that's the only reason why mine is in Danish. Just wanted to tell you that your blog is awesome and I really enjoy it.
    Have a nice time in Canada - maybe we'll meet one day back in Denmark :)

  3. Haha Elie, you were lucky, mr. France!

    And for Sara; I am really happy you enjoy it. I also enjoy very much to read yours. And yea, we should get together when we get back. Maybe meet at some future YFU Denmark arrangements? I have already talked with some people from my region KJY (Kronjylland/Randers) who are interested in me helping out.
