This past week has been an absolute recharge. I loved getting to see Belgium and am pumped about all the future trips, but I’m also very excited about all the weekends I have here in Denmark.
I spontaneously decided to go on a run yesterday. (That hasn’t happened in quite some time.) I had talked to a couple other students about this place called the deer park. They said it’s just acres and acres of woods and every now and then you can come across this giant herd of deer.
The deer park is pretty close to campus, but I live about 2 miles away from campus. If you do the math, by the time I actually made it to the deer park I felt like I had put a good run in. I also sorta-kinda REALLY got distracted by a horse stables that I saw. Turns out they go riding every Saturday and Sunday and you can show up to ride for like 600 kroner.
Afterwards I packed up my trusty backpack and headed to campus to meet Ali/do laundry/ and study up! DTU has a lot of really cool buildings, and we found this awesome spot beneath a real tree to unpack and work.
Friday I considered another run, just to get a chance to see those horses 😉 but then I remembered I had frisbee practice to cover my physical exercise for the day. I met Alex afterward and we decided to try our hands at cooking. We were going for Pad Thai, but the Netto (grocery store on campus) only had ramen noodles, so we improvised.
We met up later with my buddy Sophie and then spent the rest of the night with some of the people from the frisbee team. They ordered this really weird Gyro like pizza that had kabob meat and then a ton of lettuce. It actually ended up being pretty dang good! Pretty much ate it as a second dinner to the Pad Thai. *whoopsie*
The team is also teaching me a new cheer that I’m very excited about and it goes something like this:
“One, two, three we’re having fun.”
“Four, five, six we’re having fun.”
“Eight, nine, ten we’re having fun!”
“We forgot 7, but we’re still having fun!”
I just think that’s about the coolest cheer there is to have. And the best part is you just sing it over and over and over until you can’t sing anymore. Definitely one I’ll be bringing back to the States with me.
Today I accompanied Kayla and her roomate Helena to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. It was a bit of a treck (about an hour), but so worth it. Of all the art out there I tend to think modern art is the most fascinating just because it tends to be the weirdest and you can make up a bunch of fun back stories about it.
Below are some of the things we saw:
Well folks, that’s all I have for you this time. Stay tuned, tomorrow is another frisbee tournament (GET HYPED) and then the school week starts back in again. God Bless Yall. And God bless my roommate Matt for leaving me cake to eat:
