So. This is the story all bout how my life got flip-turned upside down. And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell you how I retook my exam without having read any additional literature and aced it. Bel air.

So. 3-ish years ago, I was finishing my first year of Norwegian high school. This was way before i was politically active, at all. My political interest at this point went a little something like: “The idea behind communism is awesome. Unfortunately the attempts were shit, so nobody wants communism anymore. Thus, I do not care at all about society.” Anyways, I finished my year, and one of my subjects, social studies, I failed at. Miserably. On a grade scale from 1 to 6, 1 being you did not pass and 6 being you are my own personal Jesus, I got a 2. Worst grade you can get, and still pass.

Now, 3 years later, I decided to retake this exam. After over a year of political activism, and plans on becoming a social studies teacher in Norwegian high school, this was a matter of honor!!

So I just came from my exam. It was oral, and I aced it!! 😉 Moving on. I got 2 questions: about culture and the problems of multiculturalism, and economic growth in relation to environmental sustainability, Both of which I can talk for hours about, due to my political activism.

Being active in Red Youth, I learn about lots of different social subjects. And that is awesome. At the end of my exam, the guy who was grading me said “are you politically active?”. Of course I am!! Yay!
