A month and a half ago I arrived here at EMIS. I can remember so many details, which makes it feel like I arrived only yesterday. On the other hand, I am able to think of so many things that we have done already, that nobody would believe me that we did all of these amazing projects/events/etc. in the past  46 days to be exact.

From Orientation week, to the stress of choosing IB subjects, starting classes, shabbat dinners, a trip to the North of Israel, another whole week of vacation, some trips to Tel Aviv, we are here today, having a day off to prepare our parts for the EMIS opening ceremony next Thursday.
Everyone on campus is busy with preparations for the opening ceremony, where we will welcome over 300 guests here on campus.

We still did not completely  start academically yet, but we are slowly getting into a routine.
My CAS activities are pretty much picked by now, Journalism, Hebrew, French, and Debate club, Environmental society, Badminton and Online UWC.
Recently I have spending a remarkable amount of time writing about my time in Israel for various newspapers: Spiegel Austausch Log, BlogEMISDein Plus and # milestone .
There is also an @EMISOnline Twitter account, follow us!

School will start again on Sunday and from there, we will not be having any break until winter break, so everyone in Vienna, see you soon! :)
