Hi everyone, I’m Sera and this is my 7th month in Canada. I spent nearly all of my time snowboarding!! Especially during the March break. I really like it and I’m a little sad that the season has ended. But this means that the weather is going to warm up and I am really excited for spring. I mean I’m still excited because I haven’t seen it yet. It is the end of March and we are still getting snow days!! I’m still shoveling snow. But I’m hoping that it would end soon because I really miss the warm weather. Right now I can enjoy the last few days of the snow.
The other thing I mostly did this month was going shopping. We went to the mall a few times because we needed prom dresses. And you know it takes time for a girl to find the perfect dress. I should mention that I have two other host sisters so this even takes more time. We still couldn’t find “the perfect dress” but that was the idea, to start looking early, so we still have time.
I almost forgot to talk about “the slush cup”. Slush cup happens every year at the end of the winter season. They dig a big hole at the end of the hill and fill it with water. People that have applied for it ski or snowboard down the hill and have to jump over the big puddle. I should say when I watched the first person trying to jump over the puddle I really thought that Canadians were crazy!! And it felt like it was something that people do every day!! But it was fun to watch. The weather was freezing and it was slightly windy. I don’t know how those people survived after falling into the puddle. Well I guess because they are Canadian!! At the end of the day I was freezing, and I certainly didn’t jump.
I am definitely turning into a Canadian. Because I can’t say no to Tim Hortons, I love watching hockey games, whenever I see that the weather is going to be at a plus temperature, I feel warm!! And I do not get muscle pain after doing the wood, it actually became my monthly sport now.
