Being an Exchange student is one
of the best things i think i have ever done and i want to thank my
parents for giving me this once in a life time experience.
The time is going by so fast its
unbelievable, almost 4 months have gone by and i cant justify in words
how i am feeling. i LOVE Denmark with all my heart and soul and everyone
here. being on exchange has MADE me grow, reluctantly i will admit i am
a bit of a mummy and daddy's girl, but having to catch a train (having
never caught one before) by myself when i cant speak Danish and living
with people i knew next to nothing about. then their is the big one...
IM RESPONSIBLE FOR MYSELF... i have to do my washing, i have to make
sure i get up in time for school and i have to make sure im under budget
(not always as easy as it sounds) and it is all these things that make
me get home sick and it is also these things that make me believe i can
now take on anything that comes my way HEAD FIRST.
When i first arrived in Denmark i had
it fixed in my head, i have me to depend on and only me. in a way this
is true for me, i can sometimes have problem with asking for help... (
thanx dad i get it from you) but i soon found out that Danes are amongst
the most loving and helpful people i know and it is at this moment i
should say THANKYOU SOLVEJ AND
BJARKE YOU GUYS MEAN MORE TO ME THAN YOU CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE, YOU ARE A
LARGE PART OF WHY I LOVE THIS COLD LITTLE COUNTRY.
Although you always hear about the wonderful
things that exchange students do and the amazing people they meet there
is more to it than that. I've been an exchange student for almost a
month now and i will admit there are days i don't want to get out of bed
because i know im not going to walk out of my room at be at home. Home
sickness is amongst the worst feelings i have ever had. As a result of
homesickness i think you become a stronger person. it's on these days
that you have to make yourself get out of bed and go do things,
otherwise you will never experience the people and places that are going
to make this home just for one year.
