It was most definitely the scariest day I've ever had, although it was exciting scary!! lol It started off with Bjarka, Francine (Alaska) and I travelling to Middelfart from Ringe (which is where i am living at the momment, untill saturday YAY) . Me being shifty the whole way i must say. I met the principal, sat in the hall with all the other students and went with my class. When we entered the room there were a pile of books a mile high i sware!!! Sooo much reading, and when i looked through them, OHH one book i could read and very well!! ENGLISH YUS haha.
Then the teachers blabered on in Danish for an hour and a half, wouldn't have a damn clue what they were saying haha This will be interesting!!! Shesh!! Then everyone started to get up and leave-- Shit, where were they going, i had to ask a girl on the way out haha, Break time. Great-- i no no one at this school, what a cool kid!! lol So i just walked casual as out of the class room to meet some students from my class looking my way. "Hi im Shannon from New Zealand" and they all kind of stared at me..haha then i talked a little with a girl and then back to danish land but with kids lol it was so awquared being the tag along for one, but then standing there having no IDEA what was going on. They could have been saying anything in the world and i just would have stood there haha
Then we went back to class and older students from 3rd gymnasium where there to greet us and "chat" not that i understand chat at all haha. We played name games ,not that i remember any ones names lol and had a tour of the school where i made a friend!!!!!! Melanie who kind of translated all the danish for me, she was nice so im glad i met at least a couple of people... Not so bad first day huh. School finished at 11 and we have it tomorrow too but as im in Ringe i am not going until Friday where it is activities all day and a chill time with the class-- then a party at school haha so hopefully i make more friends there huh.

Making the most ov every oppurtunity i'd say. X

Thursday morning i left Hamilton with a storm (literally there were floods everywhere) haha. Saying goodbye to my best friend Jess at 6am, and leaving my fimilliar surroundings of home. The airport was scary, i met new people from NZ who accompanied me into this great adventure. Tears ran as i said goodbye to those closest to me. It was so hard saying goodbye to my mum and dad, specially because thet have become much more than just this title to me, a bestfriend too. As i looked back at those who matter the most in my life, somewhere , somehow i knew it was going to be okay. This is just the new chapter of my life-- Bring it on.
First Stop-- Singapore Airport--Wahooo. I'll never forget this stop. 12 hours after we left NZ and we had some over tired teens on out hands alright. Not on my hands lol i was the overtired hypo dypo teenager with good old Kate Muir and Sean Kelly Of course!! Everything and anything was a laugh although Not to the Singapore troops who watched our every move with Guns draped over their shoulders. Ready to pounce on anyone or anything at any momment.
A cut finger, 40 cents, "plaster please", no ,no ,no.
Great times were had in that place. And us "Kool Kids" will forever remember the ride of our lives. Its gunna make us or break us.
Frankfrut and then Denmark. Asleep for four hours awake the rest, trying to understand that We're in Denmark for one year of our lives. Living a normal teens life in a different place, a differet language and perhaps a different time.
