What's So Great About Aurehøj?

So. Hi.

The main reason that the blog is so quiet nowadays, is that I have started at Aurehøj, the gymnasium of my dreams.

I have participated in my introdays. I have woken up bright and early at 6 AM to face my first day at Aurehøj, too busy and excited to really be nervous. I have met too many people to even vaguely begin to remember their names. I have played awkward and ridiculous games with totally random fellow 1. year's, including, but not limited to, a very intimate game of "cucumber relay". I have participated in, and won, an air-guitar competition in front of the entire school, and now have a trophy to prove its proud tradition. I have met my new class, 1.M, and am slowly working my way through the awkward "hello, and your name is...?"-faze, to something which could actually remind you of a class. I have met some of my teachers, including, but (again) not limited to, my stuttering physics professor John, and funny little geography teacher Eigil. I have overslept a total of 3 times out of 5 schooldays so far, thereby making a mortal enemy of my French-teacher, whom I will now have to spend the remainder of my 3 years at Aurehøj sucking up to. I have eaten lunch with the people from my class, with the girls from my choir, and with complete strangers that somehow have become my friends. I have stood outside under the great chestnut tree in the schoolyard, squinting in the sun, wearing high heeled boots and John Lennon glasses, and feeling like I actually could wear that kind of thing, or whatever kind of thing that I wanted. I have watched students desperately clutching their 8:07 AM cigarette, their noon cigarettes, and their hundreds of 4 PM cigarettes. I have sat at the nearby lake surrounded by students from Aurehøj, drinking a beer in the sunlight while eating chocolate, and playing an unforgettable round of beer relay.

In short: To answer the question, "What's so great about Aurehøj?", I'd have to answer...

Everything. Just... Everything.

I'm looking forward to some great memories to add to the already growing bundle of amazing first-hand impressions. I hope that I'll find the time to write about my life, but... to be honest, I'm too busy living it.

Thanks for listening,

I Am Roseberry.
