Achter Monat - Muttergefühle und Tanzwettbewerb


April started with me being a mom. Yes, you heard right, I got a baby. Shocked? Well, maybe I should admit that it was just a robot, a plastic doll with needs like a normal baby, that has sensors to record what ever you do to it. Yes, Canadians are crazy! I never thought that these would actually exist, but that the movies would just be exaggerating! I have to say some girls that took the class before were so crazy about that baby, they actually developed mother feelings for it, which made it a lot easier for me, because they all wanted to help me.

Even though I couldn't really relate to those mother feelings because for me it was just an obnoxiously screaming plastic thing that wanted to heist my sleep at night and my nerves during the day, I actually experienced, how on the one side it can be so nice and relieving if people want to help you with your baby, but on the other side also really annoying if they don't let you have your baby for yourself or even want to give you advices on what you have to do, even though they don't know any better than you!

So it was a good experience, and beside all the nerve-wrecking screams in the middle of the night or every two minutes during my Drama rehearsal, there were a lot of funny moments with it: The views that you get when you walk around with a baby, because people whether think you're a teenage mom or you're crazy, because you're a teenager who still plays with dolls. The terrifying screaming because some people wanted to try what would happen if they would hold the baby upside down. The guys skateboarding through the hallways with it. The second night, where I couldn't stand the screaming anymore, and shoved the baby under a ton of blankets and pillows in another room, so I couldn't hear it anymore. And my shocked teacher, when she saw my results. It's for sure a fun thing to tell my German friends, but after 3 days I was glad to get rid of it! :D

Right in time for a baby-free, but surprisingly not snow-free Easter! It seemed like this year Christmas and Easter were a little mixed up, so we got our Christmas snow a little belated for Easter, which made the Easter egg hunting for our little cousins a little chilly! But all the more we were really excited when it got warmer again! I remember going jogging on this wonderful field in the perfect sunshine, were I suddenly ran into a flock of deer, which reminded me of how I imagined my life in Canada!

On a sunny warm Sunday my host siblings and I rode our bikes downtown and went shopping in this cool Antique store, were I found some little treasures. Afterwards on our way home I flipped over with my bike, of course the perfect timing to start wearing short clothes, when I have to walk around with terrible bruises on my legs and bloody elbows. I remember my PFit class going on a run through the city in the hot sun, while our teacher was driving in her car, with her sunglasses and her food :D Or doing yoga in the relaxing sunshine in front of the school, realizing what a privilege it is to go to Canadian school.

April was also the month of confirmations in my host family's church. So there were Welcoming nights and the Confirmation of my host brother and a bunch of other young people, and another Confirmation of my host family's friends in Sudbury!

Aaaand: My very first dance competition! What an exciting experience! I always wanted to go to a dance competition and now it finally came true! Even though it was a fundraiser for cancer research, which means it wasn't really about winning, the feeling of just being on the stage and presenting the piece that you all have been working on for so long, was amazing. Although we weren't really good, especially not in comparison to some really amazing dancers there, it was a lot of fun and we even unexpectedly won an award: For being the cutest! :D With our sweet little dresses and our big smiles on our faces we convinced the jury, that we had the perfect attitude! What an amazing day and privilege to be there and see all these talented dancers, who inspired me to dance even more!

April was a good month! Let's see what comes next! :)
