One other month has handed for me right here in Winnipeg. I’ve survived -50 levels Celsius, and have – but once more – fallen (this time it was on prime of a useless pigeon!). Nonetheless, all of those moments are superb. We’re in the midst of the time period now so it’s time for the midterms. My first French composition has been successful. At first, I used to be a bit scared and reluctant to jot down the composition as I’ve solely had a few French lessons, however it seems I’m good at it.
Simply final week I adopted a cat to maintain me firm. Her identify is Mollie, and she or he is a rescue cat from the Winnipeg Humane Society. I like to recommend having a pet in the event you’re dwelling alone for the primary time. They’re an excellent assist; now I by no means really feel alone.
I additionally began volunteering at a baby daycare and it has been an excellent expertise. I take care of the kids. There are two sections, the toddler part and the four years or older part. They’re each enjoyable to work in, however the toddler house requires rather more duty as we now have to scrub their arms and do different issues for them since they’re so little. I’m additionally a volunteer note-taker for accessibility providers on the college.
One factor I really like about dwelling in Winnipeg are the variety of occasions that occur. There was a tremendous present wherein the band members performed ice devices! Sure, the devices have been made out of ice. Throughout that occasion I acquired the possibility to have a drink out of an ice cup. It froze my mouth, however it was completely price it.
There was additionally an Indigenous Storytelling occasion, which was very attention-grabbing. The indigenous elders gathered up and informed tales about their previous and tradition. It’s saddening to listen to the quantity of tales and issues which have occurred to folks prior to now that we aren’t conscious of, and that nobody speaks of. This superb occasion was free they usually additionally served free lunch, which was superb.
Hopefully subsequent month there will probably be many nice occasions once more. I intend on going to all of them.
Sadly, I couldn’t make it to one of many occasions that I needed to go to essentially the most this month: Competition du Voyageur. It’s an occasion that occurs yearly, there are a bunch of ice sculptures, a silent disco, basic Canadian meals, and plenty of extra issues. It’s okay although, there’s all the time subsequent 12 months.
