September/October

semi-overcast 12 °C

The last weeks have been pretty intense and fun. I kept on going with archery and I really enjoy it so far, the first time I practiced it was last month and I really like it now, I’m not great at it but I’ll get better.
One of my host brothers went back to his country and the house felt weird without him here. Saying goodbye to all the students that were going home wasn’t a very fun thing to do. That makes me wonder how it will be to say goodbye to students who will stay for 3 months, then for the ones who are staying 6 months and then when it comes my turn to say goodbye and leave. The year is going by really fast, it has been almost two months since I got here and I didn’t even notice it. Dear year, would you please slow down? Thank you!
I participated in the Pumpkin Regatta last week and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had so far. So, the Pumpkin Regatta is a race where people get giant pumpkins, decorate them and then go to the lake and try to cross it racing each other in the pumpkins using them as boats. I was one of the people inside a pumpkin and it was awesome! It’s pretty difficult to get used to it once you’re in the water, finding your balance is not that easy. I did not win the race but I made it across the lake and that was victory enough for me.
It’s the middle of October now and my expectations are all in Halloween, I can’t wait for that to come!
I just love what I’ve experienced so far, Nova Scotia is great. Everyone should get the chance to come here at least once!
