What is this?

Hi! My name is Ulrik, and this is my student blog. My posts will be based on tasks and subjects given to the class by my English teacher Ann. I am currently in my third year at Sandvika High School, Norway.

Hi again!

Aight.. So this is my second year at Sandvika High, and this year I have chosen many of my new subjects. So, in addition to the mandatory subjects, I will learn History and Philosophy, Politics and Human Rights, and of course, more English! This also means that I will start writing on this blog again, which is great!

So for this years first post, we have been given the task to write about "Being young in Norway, an my expectations for this school year".
I could write about young people in general, but that would be like "we go to school, some of us work, and we hang out with friends", which of course could be interesting, but I will write a little bit about my life as a young person in Norway as well. 

I live not far from Oslo with my family, or my two families that is, since my parents are divorced. I am 17 years old, and to be honest life is going great! In my spare time I do hang out with friends, but I am also practicing archery, and I am active in politics. In few weeks there will be an election here in Norway, so I am quite busy in the weekends with political work. But, I don't think most young people in Norway are doing what I am doing, so I am hardly a part of the norm. But who is, right? I mean, Norwegian youth are doing everything from just hanging out with friends, playing soccer, to politics. Personally I think being young in Norway is great!
This summer I was in Crete, and at my party's political summer camp, which was awesome(short summary). Unlike many countries in Europe Norway is doing it well economically, which means Norwegians travels all around the world during our summer vacation. But, now the vacation is over, and it's back to school! I think this year will be great, and filled with exiting days and really interesting subjects. I am looking forward to it, and my expectations are high!
