“Tag dig sammen mand”
“Pull yourself together man”
Hey y’all, I hope you’re having a lovely day and past month. I can’t believe it’s been about a month since my last post, time really does fly…. I have been in Danmark now for about 7 months or more, that’s a long time! Long time not really getting to see my family, my dog, sleep in my own bed, heck even just taking a shower in my own shower where I don’t have to worry about wearing sandals :D. I have enjoyed my time here so far, don’t get me wrong, but boy it sure can be hard being away from home sometimes. Because honestly, home is where the heart is. It’s where a person can feel most belonged and comfortable. I miss it but I also know I probably wouldn’t change a thing if I had a chance, this is an experience of a lifetime. I’m learning so much, growing as a person, in a freaking different country ahh :), meeting people I know I could never forget (even some I wish I could :P), and hopefully getting better at dance! It’s really awesome to be able to experience such a journey. A lot has happened these 7 or so months and continues to be happening especially lately and it’s good stuff but also a little overwhelming.
This upcoming week we’re heading to Norway!!!! Yup little ol’ TN boy is gonna face another challenge…. SKIING!!! I’m excited, nervous, happy, and afraid all at the same time haha. It’s going to be so cool to try this, but also nervous I’m gonna hurt myself because I’m clumsy 😛 ( knock on wood or as the Danes say syv, ni, tretten). I’m also super excited to be able to travel to somewhere new, somewhere I haven’t been before. We’re staying in cabins so it should be nice and relaxing :D. I’ll try to write another blog post next week describing (but knowing me it might be two weeks…). We’ll see how this trip goes, but either way I’m ready (Jeg er super klar)!
Starting in April, I will be taking a diving course to get my diving certificate. I know strange but I have an opportunity and I’m gonna take it! I’m actually the only international in the class (also intimating but I’m from Tennessee so I can do it haha). The class will be in April where I have to read and take exams during April and then a practical exam in the pool in June. I was able to try to do a test dive a couple of weeks ago and it was so neat being able to breathe under water, though the instructor kept telling me to calm down under water (even though I wasn’t freaking out or anything so that was a tad strange haha). I need to learn how to swim with fins though it was so hard, never swam with them before so it was different!! I will be practicing that and studying so that way hopefully I will excel!
There is actually a lot more things happening (like a chance to be teaching some dance after Ollerup) but for now I’ll leave it with Norway and Diving (quiet opposites actually, swimming and skiing). In life a person must constantly make decisions some big and some small, but a decision nonetheless. I made a decision to come to Denmark and now I’m here, like I said earlier I miss home a lot but I think I’ve made the right decision. So as my quote says, I guess I just need to pull myself together and continue to try to make the best out of my experiences while being here. I miss y’all 🙂
