Last night me and 2 other exchange students went to Kansas City to watch the soccer game between Sporting KC and FC Dallas. They are from France and Spain. We had so much fun and Sporting KC won with 3-1! As an exchange student you don’t only meet and get to know friends from America, you also get to know people from all over the world. And that’s why it’s so fun to go on exchange! Both meet people from here and people that are in the same situation as you!
The first college football game I’ve ever been to and it was so fun! Kansas university against Memphis but KU lost because football is not their thing at all, but people don’t really go to the KU games for the football, people go because of the atmosphere around and hanging out with people. There are lots of people that tailgate before and during the game and so did we. And tailgating is like when you are hanging out at the parking lot and grill burgers or wings or hotdogs and have fun. So I say it again, we should have sport in college and high school in Sweden.
We had our first home football game last night. AND WE BEAT HAYDEN! I wish we had sports in high school in Sweden because it’s so much fun. Like everyone from school go to the games and cheer and hang out with friends and it’s insane how the school spirit looks like here. We had to wear something black yesterday beacuse it was the theme black out! So yea I had a great time with nice people!
Yesterday I had a soccer game against Lawrence high school and we won 4-0. I scored the last goal in the game so after 4 played games I have one assist and one goal. I’m really glad that I started play soccer here beacuse it’s so much fun and it’s a good way to get friends! We always ride the bus to the away games together with the varsity team which is really fun, sometimes it’s a 3 hours drive so we get off school earlier on the away game days. For example when we had a game in Wichita we left school 1:30 pm and came back 11:30 pm just for a soccer game. But I like that, how important sport is for people here. Swedes should be like that and we should have sports in high school in Sweden!
And when we came back to Topeka the tornado sirens started which means you have to go down to the basement. It was kinda funny because me and my host mom talked about tornados the day before and she said that it barely happens that you have to go down to the basement and then it happens just the day after we talked about it!
Vi hade ingen skola igår för det var Labor Day här i USA vilket är en dag då man firar the American Labor movement vilket kan jämföras med förste maj (arbetarnas dag) i Sverige. Vilket typ hela världen har 1 maj men i USA är det förste måndagen i september. Hur som helst så åkte vi till Lake of the Ozarks i Missouri över helgen. Vi bodde i min värdpappas pappas hus med en hel del kusiner och liknade precis bredvid sjön och de har 2 stora båtar och 2 jetskies så det blev mycket bada, åka tube, åka jetski och båt. Försökte även mig på att åka wakeboard vilket var hur svårt som helst så det gick inte så bra. Men det var en rolig helg med trevliga människor och god mat! Hittar på en hel del roliga saker med min värdfamilj vilket är jätte kul och gör hela upplevelsen jätte bra!
Ta hand om er! ❤️
Mina värdbröders kusin. Han var mycket bättre än mig på wakeboard
