Korallen

11 Aug

I finally caved and purchased a superdrive for my MacBook Air and an Ethernet adapter, which I find is going to be necessary in my housing for me to get internet.  Speaking of, I got my housing assignment today.  I will be living in a kollegium called Korallen in Roskilde, a 30 minute trip outside of Copenhagen.  I guess it could be worse.  However, when I googled Korallen, a little comment came up saying that students who end up here say “Korallen, not by choice” due to its lack of clean kitchens and crappy furniture.  That was 50 months ago.  Hopefully, I pray, that this is not the case anymore!

I wish I was closer to the city with less of a commute, but I will use that time to read for classes or even nap.  Also, it will be nice to explore Roskilde, which is apparently the first city on the island and was once the capital.  There is a viking ship museum to check out, too.  Just a little disappointed that Roskilde Festival already happened for the year…would have loved to have seen M.I.A., Lykke Li, TVoTR, Tame Impala, and Yelle.
