My friends and I promised each other we'll work harder for own goals.
Dec . 2011
Happy New Year ! Finally we've welcomed 2012.

These days, the temperature can go as low as minus 10 in Canada. But it is supposed to be minus 10 in November. Every Canadian said to me "It's not cold enough." But I've already felt very cold, however I'm getting used to it.

In December, we had our graduation ceremony. We received our marks at that time. I was worried whether I could pass my level, yet I did. The ceremony was very beautiful. We watched a slide show of pictures and it reminded me through fall session. We couldn't help crying. Farewell are always sad but I'm sure we can meet again. My friends and I promised each other we'll work harder for own goals.

I attended a pre-Christmas party with my host mother and her friends. We sang Christmas carols and I loved it, even though they are not for same nation and generation as me, I really enjoyed it. Our hostess made many dishes such as meat pie, lasagne, garlic bread etc.

I spent Christmas Day with my host mother’s family. My host mother’s traditional Christmas dinner was scrumptious as usual. I love her cooking so I help her cooking when I can. We exchanged presents. Her sons are going to University. So I could ask about foreign university. He said university is harder than high school but it depends on a person's major. He must write 5 reports each week. I could enjoy talking to them.

My host mother took me to see Christmas lights and one of the house was amazing ! It was as if the entire house was Christmas lights: The roof, wall and yard, which was just awesome. We also visited a house which has a lot of toys and stuffed snowmen named "Frosty". They said it took 2weeks to put decorations up. Usually they put it away after January 6th. Because January 6th because that is Old Christmas Day.

I spent New Year's Eve with my friends counting down and celebrating. We went to the K-rock centre which is the largest venue in Kingston. They held many kinds of events which we enjoyed including fireworks. The display time was short, but very beautiful. People were very excited. I saw the people who cried in middle of the road. They were drunk.

Next session will start the 2nd week in January. Still I have time to review previous session's grammar and so on. I’ll be prepared for next session in winter make my own vacation because my host mother gave me a book to make my own vocab dictionary with all the words she is teaching me, it will be handy.
