Blog #3 by Sohrab Ayan

Hi guys!
Third month over and it feels like I've never been somewhere else...
It is unbelievable how quick a place can feel like home even though it is not your own house. You can tell what home really means. A place where you have people who love you and people you love, people you feel comfortable with and feel safe. This is what my host family became for me. But let me tell you a bit about this month, what I did and how things are going.

One of the Highlights this month. In the first weekend of this month we went to Hal-Con. I'ts a Halifax version of the Comic-Con and it was amazing!! I didn't even entered the huge conference room and I saw all those strangers, dressed like people you know! Shaking Darth Vaders hand, taking pictures with Pikachu, and have a small talk with Hagrid from Harry Potter. That's the moment you know you're at the Hal-Con. Hundreds of people dressed like heroes from Comics, Movies and TV shows. But that's not all. Merchandise! Lots and Lots of Merchandise!!! I was able to take a picture with my Hero from the Anime 'Naruto'.


School's going great. It didn't take me long to get into the new school, new people and the new system. Thanks to the people!!
I have five different classes in school: English, Drama, Math, Agriculture and Physical Activities.
Physical Activities and Drama are absolutely my favourite classes. In Drama we are working on plays and musicals we're gonna present and that is so much fun.
Our soccer season ended this month because we lost the finals of our league but we did something we're really proud of. The soccer team of our school has never been so far in the history of this school and we are happy about this achievement! But this is not the only achievement you can get by joining a sports team in your school. This is the best way to get to meet new people and becoming friends. I can tell!!
We also went to an auction house with our Agriculture class and it was the first time I went to one. It was fun but I felt kinda sorry for all the animals.


Canadian Culture
Three months are definitely not enough to get to know the whole culture. But I know a lot already. In this month I actually saw my first Hockey Game ever. And I can say one thing. It is intense!!!! I don't care what people say about Canadian and Hockey but I can tell they love their national sport. And it was actually so much fun watching the game. We went to Antigonish to see a game between the team of St.FX and a team of PEI. We went for St.FX and they actually won. Another thing what Canadian love is Poutine. No, it's not the President of Russia. It's French Fries but instead of eating it with ketchup, it's with cheese and gravy. And it is delicious!
