New Semester, New exciting things.

The fun time for the last months was really great, now let's continue to enjoy it with new friends and new fun.

snow -9 °C

For the past six months in Canada, I has experienced lots of things that I'd never have in my home country. From the first snow to experienced my first Christmas with my host family. I was so excited like little kid, it was the most wonderful time that I get the chance to know how real Christmas is. The things that I know about Christmas was not much to describe, cause we don't have actual Christmas in my home country. I was surprised that on Christmas, families went out together to find the perfect Christmas tree for their house, and that's what my family have. A big and tall 6 foot 8 Christmas tree, it was quite fascinate for me cause, my host mom said that the tree has a quite unique smells to it. After we bought it and placed in the living room, we started to decorate the tree with whole lots of Christmas decorates, there's a snowman, an angel, Santa clause with his reindeers. The tree was lighted with our star on top of it, it was so beautiful, and I was really enjoy decorate it with my host family, doing this tradition for the first time. Also we putted on our cats with Christmas clothes, it was so funny to see their face when we putted on them.

There was some of my host family's relatives came to stay for Christmas, we were having a traditional Christmas meal, a big turkey dinner, it was so delicious, after that we were playing our family traditional game Monopoly. I was really hate that game cause I was always the second one that came broke, but I also enjoy played it with my host family. The day I woke up, got out of bed, went to the living room. First thing I saw was a lot of presents putted under the tree, me and my host brothers opened our gifts, it was that feeling that I felt really happy to received such gifts that from my host family. It makes me now knowing the important that Christmas bring family together, the happiest time, talking and laughing, it was really an amazing time for me to get to experience this time of the year.

After Christmas time, I went to a trip that my school board organized, go skiing and skate boarding on Wentworth Skiing Hill. Me and my friends was so excited, this is also my first time go skiing on a real skiing hill. After 45 minutes on the bus, we arrived. I was mind blowing when I see the hill covered with white snow on it, it just like a real life painting in my eye. We went to the building where we gonna put our bags behind, then we continue went on to the other building, where we ask for the gear for the type sports that we're gonna have on the trip. I chose skiing because that is basic for everyone, beginners must have some lessons and practice on the small before you can go to the top of the big hill. The first lessons i was taught how to stop. Me and my friends try our first time, it went well. Next, we get on to the top of the small hill to practice how to ski and stop while skiing. I myself, fail for the first try, I was going too fast and ended up smashed myself to the big tube that protect the escalator. I went on to the second, it was fine on the second try, I finally know how to control my speed when skiing down the hill. After the lessons, we went to practiced in our own. I was practiced myself until lunch time, I was sweating and tired. After having lunch and enjoying break time, the bus came to pick us up and drive us back to school. The trip was fun, I felt great having to know how to play a new kinds of sports that I've never experience it before.

The time I spent with my family on Christmas was really wonderful, also the trip to Wentworth hill. I backed to school, met my friends, each of them was really happy to have their first Christmas together with their host family in Canada. But it also means that it's the time to say farewell to some of my friends. They all gonna go back to their home country to continue their education and working on their future career. There was lots of drama, cries and tears and hugs, but in the end, it was really happy to met those great people, to know them and to be friends with them, as long that we still have connection together, this is not the goodbye, it's just to say: " I'll see you again, it's a promise".

The new semester has begin, and my school has some new international students come here, in CEC to study in the second semester. All 15 students, come from Germany, Japan, Columbia, Slovakia, Spain, Brazil, China and India. They all has the same feeling of shyness just like me and my friends the first time we came here, now we're gonna make them happy and comfortable, teach them about new things and the experiences we learned in Canada.

Canada has brought lots of new experiences, new friends from all over the world, new cultures and traditions. It's really hard to describe the word, cause I myself had never have this kind of fun before, but now, I can say that I'm happy to be here. Thank you Canada.
