Exchange is about learning. Learning how to live.

Har vrt her i over en mned n som sagt tidligere, og har kommet meg inn i rutiner og ftt en ganske god oversikt p hva utveksling egentlig er og fant en utrolig bra tekst som beskriverutveksling. Leste denne teksten fr jeg reiste fra lille Norge og trodde jeg skjnte den, men kan trygt si at det gjorde jeg ikke! Denne teksten gir mye mer mening n som jeg faktisk har opplevd det og er her, men den gir et glimt av hvordan utveksling er! :)

EXCHANGE IS ALL ABOUT

Exchange is about learning. It?s not as simple as learning whatever it is that?s taught in school, though. It?s about learning how to listen, how to speak, and how to think. Learning who you are, who your friends are, and the type of people you want as friends. Learning how to trust your innermost feelings, and how to find those feelings in the first place. It?s about learning what is really important to you, and learning what you don?t really give a damn about.

Exchange is about learning how to tolerate, how to accept, how to like, and how to love. Learning how to give as well you receive, and how to trust that everything will even out on its own. It?s about learning that your mom and dad do have the right answers sometimes, and that your kid sister isn?t such a dumb little kid anymore.

Exchange is about learning to treat people as people and not as stereotypes. Learning that sometimes a kiss isn?t just a kiss, sometimes it means more, and sometimes it means less. Learning how to achieve, how to succeed, and how to accomplish. It?s about learning how not to come in first place and still be proud, and about coming in last and learning how to admit that you could?ve done better.

Exchange is about learning that large parties don?t necessarily mean a good time. Learning that loneliness doesn?t go away in a crowd, and that sometimes it?s okay to be by yourself on a Friday or Saturday night. It?s about learning that your lunchtime crowd doesn?t constitute your popularity, and that popularity is all a matter of perspective. It?s about learning that boredom is simply laziness of the mind, and that watching three hours of TV every night is not quality relaxation time.

Exchange is about learning how to pack a bag and how to pack a room full of way too much stuff. It?s about learning that people probably like you a whole lot more than they will ever tell you and that it?s your responsibility to make sure your friends know how much you appreciate them. It?s about learning that simply doing what you?re supposed to do isn?t enough, you need to put forth twice the effort in order to fully grasp whatever it is that?s sitting in front of you. It?s about learning how to make people smile.

Exchange is about learning how to miss people enough to not stick them in the past, and how to not miss them so much that it keeps you from moving into the future. Learning how to motivate yourself and how to motivate others. Learning what the phrase "make do" means and how to use it to make it seem as if you?re not simply "making do".

Exchange is about learning. Learning how to live

//Fant tekstenher!

Har det utrolig bra her og elsker Amerika! Men mine kjre i Norge (dere vet hvem dere er) derem ikke for et sekund tenke at jeg ikke setter pris p dere, og at jeg har det bedre uten dere - for det er ikke sant. Ja, jeg har det supert her, men en annerledes "supert" enn i lille Norge. Norge og Amerika er s forskjellige land men ogs like p samme mte, det er vanskelig og forklare men hper dere skjnner hva jeg prver si!

- Love Une

(Jeg begynte selv lese utvekslingsblogger p denne tiden i fjor og hadde mange sprsml, s hvis det er noen utvekslingstudenter der ute (for all del hvem som helst!!) s er det bare stille sprsml. Er bare glad for svare p dem, om de er sm eller store, kompliserte eller om dere bare lurer p en liten ting)

    Hei! :) Jeg skal selv reise til USA som utveksling neste r, og har noen sprsml angende utveksling:

    Hvordan er skolen, er det vanskelig siden alt er p engelsk og hvilke fag m man ha?

    Jeg har ikke s veldig bra engelsk(ligger p 4/5 eller noe), vil jeg da slite med engelsken?

    Blir man fort vant med snakke engelsk, eller tar det lang tid komme inn i det og forst alt som blir sagt?

    Hvordan er vertsfamilien din? Og hvordan er frste mte og snne ting med dem, er det skummelt?

    Tusen takk hvis du svarer p sprsmlene! :) Liker bloggen din!
    Ste meg!;)
