A week in the life – newspapers and tennis

TGS Students take turns journaling their weekly activities and experiences with their classmates. Read all journal posts here.

This school week was truly TGS-tastic (a made up word, but a descriptive one)! We did so many things that were just…TGS experiences, and this week really sets the standard for the so-called “average” TGS week.

On Monday, I went to the Aftonbladet Newspaper HQ in the morning. It was magnificent compared with the crowded little ones in my hometown. I got to go behind-the-scenes in the production of a large-scale company. I was practically brimming with girlish excitement when I stood up in front of all my classmates, read aloud my written essay for Doug Lansky (author, editor, and guest lecturer at TGS), and got some feedback! However, we had to have some normal classes too.

Tuesday, I had half a “normal” school day and half excursion. We went to the Stockholm Open, which was where Federer was going to play! I was one of the few who managed to get his signature, after many bumps with near-death.

Wednesday was our regular class schedule, along with swimming and fencing class. However, on Thursday, after a normal day of classes, we went on a Scavenger Hunt of Gamlastan. Although my group failed to win the day, we had a lot of fun!

The Viking Day, Friday, was the most special day of all. We got to dress up as Vikings, have snow ball fights, and learn about the Viking times. I even got to make iron hooks and bake bread.

I slowed down from a busy week on Saturday, but we went bowling for one of my classmates’ birthday, which was on Sunday. All in all, this week was a blast, and we would have many more of these in the future!
