Whoopsie! Week 3, 4 & 5? Embrace it!
Time had slipped by very very quickly the past few weeks. I guess that’s something about exchange: time moves extremely quickly. The idea of being away for 6 months might be daunting at first but then weeks and weeks go by in a flash. You begin to realise that it’ll be ending a lot sooner than you want it to and the weird fact that after living in a group from all over the world for 6 months, that you might never see some of them again. We became a little international family; I’ve definitely never experienced anything quite like it.
So in the past few weeks, I’ve delved into the Danish culture. I have visited the deer park, the Old Town, and some amazing museums — especially ARoS with it’s circular viewing rainbow that enables you to see the entire city in multicolours! Then on the other hand, Danish culture is a huge on drinking, (more so than us Brits I might say…) which I have also embraced full force. Nights of unlimited beer, getting home at 5am, dancing till you can’t feel your legs anymore, walking home in -10 and doing it all again the next day. But of course, studying abroad does involve studying, I SWEAR.
The University here is very different in the way classes go, from what I have experienced. To start with, you HAVE to go to your classes, then there always seems to be 60 pages of something to read every week to prepare for the next one. (A.k.a, spark notes is always an open tab).
Before I came, I had no major expectations, I had no idea what was about to come. All I can say is, if you’re thinking about studying abroad, don’t let anything stop you: do it.
