The Greater The Struggle, The More Glorious The Triumph

Today we saw a short film called “Butterfly Circus” in our English class. The film was about a circus called “Butterfly Circus” that traveled around the USA and consisted of people that came from the gutters and had been brought up in to the light by the ring master. While they were driving around on their tour they visited a circus with a freak show where they met a guy with tiny malformed legs and no arms. The guy sneaked in to one of the “Butterfly Circus” trucks, and when they discover him they helped  him with almost everything.  Until one day when they were bathing in an lake and he had to cross it by himself. When he tried to cross he fell in to the water and almost drowned until he managed to swim, something he newer knew he could. From that day he was the greatest star on the circus.

I think that one of the things this movie is trying to tell us is that, the grater the struggle, the more glorious is the triumph.

I think that the main character showed that  by the way he struggled with finding something he could do with his disability. And when he finally found it he felt really happy an was very happy to have achieved something everybody thought was impossible. Almost like when you are doing math and you are getting more happy the harder the puzzles you manage to solve.


New School Year

Welcome again dear blog readers. It is a new school year and this blog is back in business.

As the first post in this school year we are given the task to write about being young in Norway and our expectations for the new school year.

So what would it say to be young in Norway? Well being young in Norway is mostly about getting good grades and hanging out with friends. You might ask yourself: What do they do with their friends? Well, what we du with our friends is having fun. Fun for Norwegian youth is mostly playing videogames, laser tag, watching movies,

kebabeating kebab and partying. And who is paying for all this? Well, “pappa betaler”. For those of you who are not Norwegian, “pappa betaler” means “daddy pays”, and is an expression used by Norwegian youth to say that you are a daddy’s boy/girl and that he fixes all your problems.

Now the next thing I am going to write about is my expectations for this school year. First of all I expect that daddy  will keep paying and I hope that I  will improve my English. I also hope that this years English education  will be as exiting as the last.
