I haven't been posting on the blog much because I still haven't found riding opportunities since I'm still not completely settled in yet(I don't move into an apartment with my family until October). Once I do, however, I'm sure I will find riding opportunities. There are many lesson barns in Sweden, and the landlord's daughter rides horses. It's frustrating not riding, but I have enough keeping me busy these next few months.
On Monday, I start school. I will be attending a school called Per Brahegymnasiet, which was built in the year 1283. It is a beautiful old building that has a magical feel to it because of its age, as if it were Hogwarts.
There I will be studying full IB. IB classes are international classes that are at an international standard; they are typically more challenging than regular classes. All the classes will be in English, but I'm am taking a Swedish as a second language class as well. In addition to that, I will be taking English at a Higher Level, History, Physics at a Higher Level, Advanced Mathematics at a Higher Level, and Chemistry.
I'm focusing heavily on math and science because I someday hope to study astrophysics or quantum physics at university and work as a researcher to discover new information about these fields of work. Learning about how the world works truly fascinates me. I find these things - events that happen on the largest scale, way out in space, and the things that happen on the most minute scale within the atom - truly extraordinary.
I'm looking forward to classes. I'll endeavor to keep this blog active, even though I do not have horse information to post about.
