School’s out – almost

Heeey ♥ Hope you’re doing well!
The weather here has been sucking the last couple of days, rain, rain, rain … And back home there almost isn’t enough space on the crowded beaches because it’s nearly 30 degrees! Man.

So what have I been doing? Well, not much to be honest. The school year is coming to an end, which is also pretty clear when you look at the students and their work ethic. (Not that they reaaally work that hard normally … But still, one can feel the difference). Today is known as “Notenschluß” ( or something like that) which basically means that the teachers won’t grade you anymore, and there won’t be any pop quizzes until next year either. Basically this is the beginning of a month where we will be doing absolutely nothing productive,  just sitting in our chairs and watching movies (on the overheard projector, if we’re lucky) and waiting for the summer vacation to begin. You’re probably wondering why they even bother to come, when they aren’t taught anything,  and honestly I’ve been wondering the same thing … apparently it’s a law, or something. (And the teachers do try to teach us stuff, but nobody listens, cause it’s not like they are being graded on it anyway. That’s when the teachers give up and make us watch old documentaries about the second world war).

Other than that, I’ve been hanging around the neighbor kids a lot. Also, since it’s wm season, we have been doing a lot of “public viewing”in our living room.  Very cosy 😉

Anyway, nothing much going on as you can hear. Just hoping Germany wins the world cup, that’d be an awesome to experience. It’s so nice seeing all these German people being proud of their country. That’s one of the things i miss about home as well; that Danes are unbelievably proud to be Danish, and that makes me so happy. I think it’s sad that Germans can’t wave their flag around and sing at other events than the football games, without being judged as “nationalists”. But oh well. Can’t change the past 😉

Right, have a great weekend!  My sister is coming home from America tomorrow, hope everything goes well!

Hey guys!
Went hiking during the last vacation!  First time really hiking. We started the trip by hiking for about four hours to a hut in the mountains, had to bring our own food and stuff. There was no running water either because of the high placement. Very different than the city life, but an experience nonetheless. Hiked to a different hut the following day, and the last day we spent 7-8 hours hiking all the way down again. We ended the hiking trip with a couple of days of relaxation in a spa hotel + shopping in Primark in Innsbruck.

The view was beautiful,  but i gotta say i like the city better 😉

Exchange student meet up Munich

Hey guys! Went to Munich with other exchange people some time ago, but never got around to putting up the pictures!
We checked out the sights in the city, including the big Allianz Arena,  it was pretty cool and the people were really fun. Also went to schloss neuschwanstein!!! The hostel where we stayed was pretty … Disappointing,  let’s put it that way. Great trip though!

At the end of the trip, i met up with my host family in Gersthofen,  a koncert hall, where my classmates and host sister,  who are in the school orchestra, were performing for the “Klasse klassik” concert together with professional musicians from the BR Orchester. It was really beautiful!

Hey people!!
What’s up?
Currently dying in the heat down here, missing Danmark’s cool summer breezes terribly! It’s been super hot the last couple of days, followed by stormy weather (thunder and lightning) during the night. Luckily I have vacation at the moment, we’ll first be going back to school in a week and a half.

So I’m just soaking up as much sun as i can,  without getting burnt (which is a minimal amount, actually … ) and trying to stay hydrated and read stuff in German. Missing people who are not here with me … can’t wait to see you again! ♥

Love and kisses

I’m sorry, cat

Hey guys! Hope you are well!

So I haven’t updated for a while, I know, shame on me. Let me get you up to date!

First of all, the cat died. Yeah. It happened Friday afternoon, pretty sudden, gotta say. She’d been hit by a car or something, half of her body was lame, but she’d managed to drag herself nearly all the way home. My host sister found her at the fence of the garden. She was still living and thought she could walk and jump and stuff, but of course that’s hard to do when only two of your four legs work. They took her to the vet, but there wasn’t much that could be done. At least she died without pain, I guess. We buried her last night by the forget-me-not’s in the back yard. My host sister was pretty devastated and I felt quite bad, cause I hadn’t exactly treated the cat very nicely all the time. I mean, not that I was a cat-hater or anything. I just didn’t always pet her when she wanted to be petted, or I ignored her when she wanted to go outside. It took me back to the time my guinea pig died, or almost two years ago when I had to give up my dog.

The fact that the cat wasn’t there anymore made me realize that I could have been a bit nicer to that cat, and yes I’m gonna get all deep now. Often times we don’t treat people as nicely as we could. Sometimes I forget to think before I speak and stuff just pops out, or maybe I change the truth a little bit so it stands in my favor. Generally, you just first realize all the things you could have done, when the person isn’t there anymore.

I read this quote recently, German, it goes something like this in English: “You can’t do something great every day, but surely something good.”

And I really liked it, cause I do want to do something great someday, but sometimes it get’s so overwhelming, trying to do great things. And so you just give up, because you know it won’t be as great as you imagined it to be. But I have to remind myself that I shouldn’t give up. Doing something good every day is great in itself. It’s the little things that make the big difference. And we forget that a lot.

So I’m going to try and focus on doing little things too; those small things really show people how much you care.  A helping hand or a compliment is always nice, and a smile change someone’s day.

So stay happy and stay kind! Haha. Hope you all have a wonderful week (*sending dashing smile your way*).

Loads of love,

Bianca xxxxx
