I live with my mother, father and two siblings.

I am a 9th-grader at Oslo International School. 

I belong to the ones that train taekwondo, the pupils, the basketball players, the forwards, the students at the international school, the golfers, the active, the violin players, the hip hopers, the Tamils, the Tamil speakers, the forest users and the trekkers, but I do not belong to the politicians, the ones that are concerned with the weather, the ones that are nagging about the roads in this country or the ice-hockey players.

I live in Oslo because it is a pretty cosy city to live in. You can get everything here, I think it is a pretty exiting town. And people are nice, I mean if you loose something on the street chances are people will contact you if they find it.

I don't know the Enemy of the People, but think that “the strongest man in the world is the one standing the most lonely”  means that if he stands for what he means and he means that this is right, then he can go pretty far. Stockmann is not alone in risking something, everyone else in the city also risks loosing their money.  Still he should stand up for what he means. He should not give up because the media don’t allow him to print his paper.

I have turned away from thinking that private schools are so much better than public schools, to understanding that it really depends on the school, not if it is public or private. I understood through meeting people in taekwondo and karate classes that many public schools are on the same level as the private schools.

I am going by car to the theatre, because we drive around most of the time. I won’t drive myself because I am not old enough, and I don’t know how to describe the route to get there.
