Today I wanted to refelct on time management and on how we can try to fit everything we need to do in the day in 24 hours. I am not the best time manager in the world but having a really busy shedegule i have […]
After a year in the same city having to go to school was very nice to visit Toronto with on worries what so ever. Toronot is extremely varius for scenarios, color textures and inhabitants. I am not the greatest photographer but I was able to to cach some of the atmospheres that are with in the city. My parents came to visit and we also went to see ottawa. I had never been outside toronto before and it was amazing to see how different the two citys are, it semms like another nation.
If toronto is extrememly energetic, full of life and textures, ottawa on the other side in way more brithsh and relaxd. There’s no big skyscraper, no mourning rush in the subway and for me no place to call home.
Surprinsingly enough Toronto is full of local shops and gtting lost arround the city I leared to love them and apreciate their unicity in a fast consuming era like ours. In ottawa, with few ecceptions I had no chances to see any of these extremely local shops that give to the city that unique and unforgettabel taste.
Despite everything I have said I have lived in Toronto for 10 monthad and spent in Ottawa only a few days. I would love to go beack and tell you how’s like to live in Ottawa.
See you soon, hopefully, Mirtagf
- Home is not a place; home is a feeling. I have not been the luckiest, my host “family” is not a family at all. This situation made me understand that home sometimes is just feeling good with yourself in any condition. One of the most important things I am learning is that my body is my home, Is the only thing I will always have. Sometimes is hard, especially when you are sick and the last thing you want to do is going to your host. Those times you just want desperately to feel safe and cosy. I slept on the floor of my dance studio… thankfully I am anything but a fancy person.
- Have fun. I can not believe that six months are already gone. There are so many things to do, so much to explore, do EVERYTHING. There is going to be all the time to make homework, go outside and have fun. Live every day thinking that you are not going to have this opportunity ever again.
- Bring stuff that make you feel safe. I know that we are grown up… ish. But bring something with you that reminds you some great time spent back home. It will help you a lot in those moment when you are super tired and homesick.
- Culture shock is real. I can tell you that even if you do not realize culture around the world can be very different. I still do not understand how Canadians can do some of the thinks they do every day. How can anyone else in the world live without bidè?
Hi guys, January was defenatelly the hardest moth I’ve has so far since I have been in Canada. But I really think that in order to grow up is necessary to suffer a little bit of pain. I will try to post a little bit more regoularely but I can not promise anything. See you soom Mirtagf.
