Sechster Monat - Winterende und Semesterstart
February. Half a year!
February started with new beginnings, ended with the flu. Winter! By now everyone here, including me, is done with winter. Sickness is sneaking up, all my host siblings have been hit by it and I still am, which made me even happier to see the snow melting and the icicles falling off the roof, when today's burning sun gave me a little hope for spring.
I just can't wait for summer! Even though I like winter, really! Especially here in Canada, it is just so beautiful. I love the days when I walk to school or home in the sunshine, I marvel at the icicles that look dangerously huge, as I have never even seen some like these before! And sometimes, when I am all by myself, I just lay down in the snow, looking up to the sky in it's perfect blue.
And that's how our new semester started: with a snow day. The only one we had until now, even though we should have had more. A day where all we did was about the snow that came down the night before. I can still remember how Vivien, Jordan and I were making piles of snow to jump in from the porch and how I filmed Jordan jumping from the roof, till his mom came and called him down. I remember Vivien and I running home in our lumberjack blouses, screaming under the pain of the cold, which I thought would make my hands fall off, after we had a photo shooting in the woods.
And at night having so much fun tobogganing, until all our faces felt frozen, our eyelashes and eyebrows were cowered in ice and our hair was frozen to our hats. What a day!
And with that the new semester began. Indeed it is a great one! I choose the classes Dance, Drama Production, Personal Fitness and Parenting. It is so much fun, I love it! Canada has an amazing system regarding their offer of classes and I am happy to be an international student because I can totally savour it! I am honestly not looking forward to go back to German school and I wish it would be a little more like here!
I have met a lot of new people and I start feeling more belonging. But the thought of having to leave in 4 month doesn't make it easy.
Our church youth day in Toronto was a lot of fun. We had sport activities and a photo boost, and it was just nice to see each other again. Afterwards at some of the guys' house, where we went to watch Super Bowl (which I found Super Boring :D ) I remember Vivien and I getting sooo hyper, jumping around the room fighting, which made everyone else really annoyed but us even more insane!
This month Vivien turned 16! She got her G1 ( beginners driver's licence) right away and on the weekend after we went skating the house was filled with lots of people from church for her big party!
Well that was this month so far, I am excited for the next one and hope for spring to come :)
