It's finally May, I am happy that it is getting warmer but it also means I'm going home soon. I don't want to... but let's not talk about this. The rugby games of the school is over , SA is in provincials but with the second place. I wish they were the first so that Cem and Pablo would be happier. The exams are coming up but the temperature is also going up , nobody really wants to study. Our school had the voting for next year's head boy and head girl. It was the most entertaining show that I have seen in my life to get more votes. 
But also at the beginning of the month , two guys from our school died cause of a car accident. I didn't personally know them but I can see the pain in people's eyes. It is so sad that two young people died because of speed and alcohol. This happened just before the mothers day , I can't imagine the pain that they mothers had... Still the place that they had the car crush has tons of flowers around it and candles , there was nearly no one in the school when their funerals were going on. It is so sad to know that they were students and they died at the age of 15 and 17. 
-Rest in piece boys-
  In may.. other than that tragedy , we had a surprise party for Alberto and another party for Leonie but neither of them was better than mine ;) We had Alberto's party at the backyard of our house and we took so many pictures with Sarah's camera but Alberto comes , but unfortunetly the camera died just before he arrived . So yeah, we have tons of pictures of us without the birthday kid :) 
                  We also had a bonfire at my friend Abbey's house and went to hot-tub after.  It was such a nice night with friends. We will have one more bonfire for my host sister Courtney at Abbey's two weeks later from today , since we will be in Halifax this weekend!!! It's the second Halifax trip that I will go to with the exchange students and I am actually really looking forward to it!

 I have so many reasons to love April , love Canada and love my friends. When I remember the fact that I will go back to my country soon , all I think about is about if I will ever see these people again. I miss my family , my friends in Turkey , food , my dogs and everything but I have a life here that I love. I am not saying that I will be depressed all the time or something when I go back to Turkey but I love my life in Cape Breton.

      I think it is because here I have less rules to obey, more time to spend with friends and the most important fact is that everything is new , everything is fun. I am still studying for my classes and everything but here is a lot easier.
I don't actually know how will I catch up with the students in Turkey when I go back. To make my studies easier , I decided to study languages when I go back. I have less than 1 month in Canada, I actually really don't want to go back , stay here forever with my friends and my family here.

Even though the pictures are really bad , it was still my best birthday party ever. I will never forget my friends  here in Cape Breton :)

April, My Birthday - Sweet 16

    I knew it that I wouldn't be able to write my blog like a diary anyways .. so yeah - I couldn't. April 19th was my first birthday in Canada .. now I am 16 so I will need to change the caption of the blog since I am not a 15 year old Turkish girl anymore. Two weeks before my birthday , I saw a commercial on TV , Swiss Chalet and I was asking my host mom if they actually make the chicken that way cause it was exactly how we do it in Turkey and my host mom was like yeah , we can even go there for your birthday but I will need to book it right now since its a really busy place for a family dinner. Which sounded really really normal to me , thinking my host father and I have the same birthday and we will just going for a family dinner together. At the same day , I was trying to organize a birthday party for myself on Saturday night at my friends house. When the friday night come , I just wore a sweater and left to have supper with my family thinking "eeh we will just go have some burgers and come back". 
    As we stepped in , Maureen told the waitress that we came for the reservation for The Snow , and the woman said "Oh the big group , just follow me" and I was just thinking we are four people what is she saying. So yeah , there was a surprise party with 52 people including my coordinator Kevin Linden, when i saw everyone there singing there for me and everything , all i could do was just staring around , crying.. That was the best birthday party I have ever had , after that we went to boardwalk and happily, it was such a warm day that we could stay outside till 11. And who organized all these were my host sister Courtney and my Turkish friend Cem , there is even a group on Facebook for the surprise party . All this obviously made me so happy and feel loved.I am really happy here and when I think that I will go back to Turkey really soon , I just feel bad - but I am also excited that I will see my dog and my family after a year and be able to eat Turkish food! So the party was awesome but unfortunately, there are only 2 people who have pictures from that night and one of them is Chris , which means I probably will never have those pictures. 

except this one.
