Hi everyone, I’m Sera and I only have 16 days left to go back to my country. I know I didn’t write a blog for May, but I figured that it would be better if I write one last big one instead. It’s the end of the school year so I have to study for my exams. Canada is warming up. The weather can be so good that I just want to stay outside all day. I couldn’t do that in May because it was raining quite a bit. We did have some good days in May but you can’t trust that, it might snow the next day. But I got to enjoy those days with my friends.
I also went to Peggy’s Cove that month. It is a really pretty area and if you are ever coming to Canada I recommend that you should go there. It was a bit windy but it was worth it. Luckily the weather was pretty good that day.
There was a day that we did a “Turkish Day” which I invited my Turkish friends to my place and we cooked Turkish food together. I had so much fun that day and doing that made me feel like I was home. We gave some of the food that we cooked to my host family too. I’m happy that they enjoyed it.
While I was here, in Canada I got used to going shopping. And I’m not a person who really likes going shopping, but now I don’t mind going because I’m having lots of fun with my friends. Friends make everything better and Canada gave me lots.
My first prom was amazing!! Everyone was all dressed up and they were taking photos. I get to see beautiful and colourful dresses and it was a great atmosphere. I got so tired after dancing all night. I ‘m really glad that I get to have this experience.
After prom we had a Foreign Correspondent Trip which I had lots of fun. Eventhough we don’t really know each other I felt close to them. It lasted for 3 days. Thank you to Monica and Mike, it was a long drive for a few of the correspondents and they were driving. I ate sushi for the first time with them and I liked it. We stayed in delhousie residence. ı think it’s our luck, but the receptionist was an ambassador student. She helped us a lot. We even took a photo with her. Anyway the next day we went on a boat trip and saw 100 islands. They were beautiful. We also saw seals too. They were cute!! The third day we went to an art gallery and to Peggy’s Cove. We couldn’t do a lot of outdoor activities because it was raining all day. We still went to Peggy’s Cove and got wet, but it was fun. ıt was a good opportunity to see the things that we still haven’t seen in Canada. Oh I almost forgot. We also went to a library that was bran new in Halifax. I told Monica that she could leave me in there for the night so that I could explore. That never happened but we did wonder around a bit. I have to tell you it was one of the best librarys that I have ever seen in my entire life. I still think that if she let me there I could spend a couple of weeks just reading!
After that it was time to leave and it was a little upsetting, but the friends that you have made in Canada would still be your friends and you will not lose contact with them. I have to keep reminding that sentence to myself or otherwise I will burst into tears.
Now it is my last week in Canada. I feel excited to see my family(I missed them so much) but I’m also sad because I don’t want to leave.Yesterday was the last day of school and I had to say goodbye to everyone. I was nearly crying. But I knew this day was going to come so I try to think that I would still be able to talk to my friends threw the internet.I can cry after the exams. Right now I have to focus on them.
