Huh, for once someone actually wants to hear my opinion. Or so I thought before realizing that this is just another clever trick to keep me working on that weird blog of mine. You see, since the early November uprising students regained over the school so I am no longer forced to write these creepy posts. But they got me this time and I already made like 20 pages of script, might as well finish it. The assignment says that I am supposed to write about my experiences from “International Day” an unknown school that is not called [REDACTED]. On the other hand, that school should really fix few areas around the campus. No really, our cafeteria looks like a damn concentration camp.
Let’s talk about:
International Day at [insert school name here]
One beautiful day people from all around the globe were invited to our school. These people have different backgrounds, some are ex refugees, others are photographers who took time to visit places that are in conflict and wanted to tell the tale. There were many rooms we could choose, in each someone with a story we could listen to. Too bad they only gave us time for three of them, badly planned if you ask me since some of this stuff was really interesting.
The day after there is something we call OD day (Or „Operasjon Dagsverk” for people that enjoy awkward Norwegian names). Basically students are supposed to find one day job and ask for a payment that is 400 Nok (around 48 USD) and donate it to OD. Every year OD chooses a project/charity that will receive the money we gathered during the work day. In my opinion, that is extremely little pay for 10 hours of work in my opinion. That is way below the minimum wage, besides pumping up the price even to 500 would be better than 400.
Not much more to say really, besides that there was a huge controversy about the project this year. But I am not going to waste your time talking about retarded people that are searching for propaganda in whatever they lay their hands on.
Overall a positive experience only too short.
