My graduation dresses // Mine studenterkjoler

English:
This week I finally graduated from the Higher Commercial Examination, which is a bit similar to the upper secondary school but with focus on business. It have been crazy hectic and super tiring especially because we also celebrate Ramadan these days. In Denmark the sun is down for less than 4 hours, which in my case means sleeping very late every night. This have been a bit difficult because I had to get up early in the following mornings to celebrate the other students who had their last examinations after me. I barely had any time to breath or eat this week. Nonetheless, I have had one of the best weeks in my life and I am super happy we all made it through 3 years of hard work and difficult times. As much as I am enjoying the fact that I have finished my exams, I cannot avoid feeling a bit sad about having to say goodbye to all of my classmates. It is some sort of a bittersweet feeling.

Enough emotionel stuff. Let's move to my outfits; one for my last examination day, and one for my graduation day. Tradition in Denmark is that girls wear white (or blue/red shade depending on choice of education). I went for white dresses both days and tried to stick to white clothes throughout the week. The graduation hat is also an important part of our outfits and most students wear them for 7-14 days after their last exam to symbolize their graduation for the world. People are super nice and congratulate everyone wearing the hat. One of the little things I love about Denmark and its traditions.

Dansk:
Denne uge dimitterede jeg endelig fra HHX. Det har været sindssygt hektisk og trættende, specielt fordi jeg også har været ved at fejre Ramadan i disse dage. I Danmark er solen nede i mindre end 4 timer, hvilket for mig har betydet, at jeg har sovet rimelig sent. Det har været lidt af en udfordring fordi jeg har været nødsaget til at stå tidligt op de følgende morgner for at fejre mine kammerater og venner, som havde deres sidste eksamensdag efter mig. Jeg havde knap nok tid til at få vejret eller spise i denne uge. Ikke desto mindre, så har det været en af de bedste uger i mit liv og jeg er rigtig glad for, at vi alle klarede 3 års hårdt arbejde og udfordrende tider. Selvom jeg nyder det faktum, at jeg har afsluttet alle mine eksamener, så kan jeg ikke undgå at føle en vis trist følelse over, at skulle vinke farvel til alle mine klassekammerater. Det er lidt af en bittersød følelse.

Nok emotionelt halløj. Lad os hoppe over til mine outfits; en for min sidste eksamensdag og en for min dimissionsdag. I Danmark er traditionen, at piger har hvidt tøj på (eller blålig/rødlige nuancer baseret på valg af uddannelse). Jeg valgte at hoppe i hvide kjoler begge dage og prøvede at holde mig til hvidt tøj ugen igennem. Studenterhuen er også en vigtig del af vores outfits og de fleste studenter bærer dem for 7-14 dage efter deres sidste eksamen, for at symbolisere til omverdenen, at de har afsluttet deres uddannelse. Folk er super søde og gratulerer alle, som bærer hatten. Det er en af de små ting, som jeg elsker ved Danmark og dets traditioner.

I FOUND MY FUN IN LONDON

When I headed towards London I had two goals; loads of shopping in Primark (we don't have any in Denmark) and paying at least one visit to Beirut Nights. This was acutally a study trip. We (me and 60 other students) headed to London to take a course at Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College. Studying in a different country with a different language was actually a pretty rewarding experience. We had the oppurtunity to see how English schools were, how students dressed and how they behaved.
Enough about school. The best part of my trip was all the shopping I made. I actually had to pay a visit to Primark 3 times before I was satisfied. But you can check out the pics and judge youself
