…time is really flying by!!!! Another week of school is over…
Monday Ballbasis & Orienteering, Tuesday Swimming & Climbing, Wednesday American History in the morning, Ballgames in the afternoon, Thursday Orienteering – my weekly program at Vestfold College… Nice, isn’t it???!!!!
Well, in October I’m finally starting the Norwegian course… I’m still not able to speak a lot but I’m getting quite good in understanding what the people are saying. Some words in German are quite similar to Norwegian… So @ the sportscourses, I don’t need a translator anymore… I get most of it and if I don’t I just ask my colleagues… They are very helpful!!!
I do have a lot of free time but I also have to read a lot in English. I would never have thought that American History would ever be so interesting!!! At the moment we have to read “The Autobiography” by Benjamin Franklin – pretty tough to read… (He is at the 100 US$ bill) …”I concluded at length, that the mere speculative Conviction that it was our Interest to be completely virtuous, was not sufficient to prevent our Slipping, and that the contrary Habits must be broken and good Ones acquired and established, before we can have any Dependence on a steady uniform Rectitude of Conduct.” – Did u follow???? I didn’t…;-)
Today we had our first “Orienteering lop” through the forrests… Was really cool!!! Me and Silje were a team – equipped with compass, map and a chip for the control points we had to find seven posts, stick the chip to the check-point and find our way back to the starting point. I think it’s a really fun way to run through the forrest and also get used to work with map and compass… (I don’t take pictures at school, as I think it’s not necessary and maybe some students wouldn’t like it…??)
Weekend started at noon, as we were finished by then. In the afternoon – again to Tjome, bouldering, chilling and reading there…;-)
