Good day good folks!
How has your day been so far? Hopefully its been a great day! So this past week I’ve thought about; what to post on the blog on a daily basis. Initially, when I agreed to to write on the blog, and even earlier than that, when I applied for the opportunity of studying in Canada, I wrote about keeping anyone who wanted in the loop of all things necessary regarding their future/possible time at York. The only problem is that; all I can think of is how much I love it here, and I know it gets tiresome to read about someone just yapping on about how much they love it, and nothing else. Genuinely speaking, thats all I can think of. I’ve loved every day I’ve been here, I love the people I’ve met, the residence I’m staying in, the dons in charge of the building, my classes, even the boring ones, I even love the squirrels and the even the damn raccoons.
Life here, is somewhat like in the movies. You live on campus and all sorts of unexpected things happens here. I can’t remember what movie it was due to the fact that it has been ages since I’ve last seen it, but there’s a movie about a girl attending collage and everything was so overwhelming and everywhere she want she would see people. And the instance I’m thinking of is that even when she went to a place that seemed so remote the artistic group was playing music and she got so pissed off haha! Well what I am trying to say is that, there is people everywhere and every now and then there will a little group of artistic people (people who either lives or is affiliated with Winters collage lol) who plays music, but the difference between me and the girl in the movie is that I quite like it. I love it here.
Life is so different yet with some instances of similarities from the life back in Sweden. It has to be the kind people all around you and the lifestyle, I obviously can’t speak for everyone but generally speaking, we Swedes don’t live the most social lives, we don’t hang out with people every single day, for no apparent reason, just for the sake of hanging out. But thats what they do here, and I know I know, I’ve probably written the word love 530 times so far, but I LOVE IT. I feel so at home here! And it doesn’t hurt that the weather is still warm here. I promise for next week I will try to write something slightly productive for anyone interested in York university, but for now, believe me, if you ever get the opportunity to come, first of all, DO IT! and secondly, I have no doubt you will love it as much as I do. I wish everyone could experience this euphoric feeling of being here!
