From Suburb to Our "Burb"
Odense may have a reputation as an overgrown suburb when you ask the rest of the nation, but that's never how I have experienced it. To call something a suburb is in my head to describe something as culturally abandoned and boring, and I don't think that is a fair assessment of Odense. Odense is my city, my home and I share it with thousands of other smart, creative and thoroughly nice people. People who engage in theatre, music and create beautiful works of art. People who work out complex formulas, create robots and rock the wildest professor aesthetics on the way down Gydehutten at Southern Denmark's University SDU. People who grow, work, live and die in the City. People I am proud to call my fellow men, and even better; fellow Odenseans.
Regardless of size, Odense is our city, and it is actually a damn good one. At least I think so.
Now it still ended up being more about Odense than about me, and I must of course apologise for that. But hey: Look me up out in the city over the summer, whether you're in the mood for a good talk, need inspiration for what to do in Odense or just need directions for of the nearest toilet, I'll see you soon.
