- Take advantage of all of the activities that your school provides Join a club or a sports team, maybe the choir or theatre program because you will meet lots of friends there.
- Always say YES to new experiences! Try that that new food or even just go to Walmart with your host mom if she asks!
- Don’t make too many expectations for your exchange to look like the movies. Sometimes it can, but by making expectations about what your school may be like, it may lead to some disappointment and a bad start.

Everything here, in Norway, is great! I can't believe how fast this year is going and that I only have a month and a half left here. I had an amazing summer and did so many things, like a five day mountain hiking trip, a road trip around the south and west of Norway with my host family and I also visited an exchange friend in Germany for a week. In between all this I relaxed a lot! This year was the hottest summer Norway has had in years, so I did a lot of swimming in lakes and the fjord. I hung out with my friends and host family, played beach handball, explored a lot and also got to celebrate my first birthday in summer! Last weekend I met lots of new exchange students living around the Oslo area which was fun and I got to give them lots of advice. Recently I took part in a obstacle course race with my host sisters, which was challenging but so fun. This weekend I had a sleepover with five of my friends and had a great time. Now I've been back at school for four weeks and it's great to be back into the swing of things, even though I'm really busy with homework. It's so nice to be back at school and socialising everyday, I really love the Norwegian culture and the school system. Autumn is here and it's starting to get colder, but it's really nice and cosy to be inside with candles lit and watching movies with my host family. I absolutely love it here and feel so lucky to have this opportunity. This has been the best year of my life. Alyssa
