Welcome to my blog!

My name is Alexander Schrøder. I'm 18 years old as of April 6, 2004. I live in Oslo, the capital of Norway.

I won't tell you that much about me. If you'd like to know me, read my blog entries. They contain so much about me, they should let you know who I am. I pour my thoughts and activities into it.

Ah, so then it's school again tomorrow

Honestly, I like school better than free time. Why, you may ask. Mostly because I have nothing to do when I have free time.. Or then again, I do, but I don't want to do what I can do. Let's see what I can do..

I can watch TV. If there only were something good ever on the TV. I think my TV is on for a total of about 60 minutes a week, unless I actually care to watch the Simpsons every day, something I very seldom do, so usually it's only on for 60 minutes or less.

I can use my TV to play games on. I have a PlayStation with plenty of games, and a PlayStation 2 with some games.. and on my PlayStation I have a NES Emulator with something like 2000 games on. Still I don't feel like it. I suppose I'm spoiled. Not really compared to many people, but I'm too spoiled to enjoy something I know many people would just love to be able to do at all. So I am spoiled.

I can use my PC. It's an all-purpose tool after all. I could, like... play games on it... or... browse the internet... or... chat with people... or... e-mail somebody... or... download something... yeah.. you get the idea. This is also what I often do. Like right now, I'm still downloading those wonderful Sonic SatAM episodes. There might be a God, you know? (That's a joke by the way. Not a joke as in "There might be a God", but as in "There might be a God just because I got my hands on those episodes." And yes, I know you figured it out yourself, but there are so many stupid people in this world, and if you happen to be one of them, be glad I told you this, so you don't have to flame me for saying there might be a God just because of it, and if what I just said insults you, you're not actually stupid enough to fall under the category of stupid. If what I just now said confuses you, heh... I'll just leave that up to you to figure out. But you most likely can't, cause you're stupid, and this is going way too far, since I've explained the joke several sentences back, and uh.. well, I just had to do this.)

But even if I have my PC to do that on, doesn't mean that it's what I want to do.. so I read books, I do. I started doing that not so long ago. I just wish I had begun earlier. My ex-girlfriend suggested it to me already in 2001 I believe. And I think some other people suggested it to me earlier as well. But back then, I always had something else to do, and reading books just sounded to me like a waste of time. So very unproductive. And how wrong was I? Totally. Not only is reading books often better than watching many of the movies I've seen, it's also building up your sense of grammar and vocabulary. Of course, those are only practical reasons... It's actually great to have a "time-waster" now and then, which book reading certainly is. But I still like school better than books. If I bring books to school, I usually don't have time for reading them.. except for on the way to school and on the way back. Why is that?

If you have followed my diary from the beginning, or very early (something which I doubt, I'm rather uninteresting) you've figured that I like school because this is the arena where I socialize. And being social has become more and more important to me, as other things I used to enjoy has become less and less interesting. Of course I can regret having been so damn asocial during my younger school years, but what can I do about that now, eh? More or less nothing, yeah. So I try now to "catch up", without being too overwhelming upon those I socialize with. Yeah, yeah, you know who I mean.

Aye. I like school. I'm a total weirdo. I like most subjects too, btw. So I'm not like, totally focused on school just because of the social part. I like learning. Here's my school schedule, for those of you who are interested. I would like to point out my favorite and least favorite subjects too, before you get to see them. Or then again, you might've skipped this part, and gone straight to the schedule, because it's all yuck-colored and attention-grabbing, but anyway - my favorite subjects are, and have always been math and physics, while my least favorite subjects are german and gym. The first one I dislike due to the first teacher I had in the subject, God, how I hate that moron, and the other one I dislike just because it's physical training forced upon you. And you just gotta do it whether you like it or not. Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against physical training, but why don't we get to do what we like? I mean, we often just play soccer or uh.. "field hockey" would be the best translation here, I guess. That's not my idea of fun. I much more enjoy jogging or running. Or volleyball or just plain ball-less play-games. Now that I've said it all, here goes:

Interesting, isn't it? I just wish the two last German lessons on Monday and Friday were moved to the beginning of the day instead, and we've even suggested this, but it's impossible, due to so-and-so. I mean, I would rather start early and end early, than start late and end late. And why is that? Because the extra time on the start of the day doesn't have any use at all.

Now I say good bye, cause I just don't have anything else to add, cause I am boring and cause I am tired. Good night too. Since I'm going to bed.
