I’m too exhausted from work to do anything ever.
I could sleep for 50 hours at the end of this week and I have camping this weekend so I can’t sleep in like I sooooo badly need ;-;
I saw Brave in French with April and ate at St Hubert.
It was delicious and the movie was so incredibly amazing I can’t even.
THE SEATS! ARE PERFECT!
AND IT’S CHEAP!
I am never seeing a movie in Calgary ever again after this! On Tuesday’s it’s 5.00$! WHAT?!
Yesterday was the Jazz festival which was so incredibly amazing I have no words for it.
But I’m soooooo tired.
Siling was a ditcher today for seeing the movie because the transit system here does not seem to entice her.
I’m going to sleep.
So that I can wake up at 7am to walk 45 mins to work with blistered feet.
Started work today.
Holy fuck Montreal is hot.
Oh Mon Dieu!
I’m working with 9/10 and a 12 year old this week.
I got to make up a camp name for myself.
I chose Merida (the new Disney Princess from Brave)
Cause I am just that awesome!
The kids adore me!
One of them said I was their favorite counselor.
It made me laugh.
He kept hugging me, it was cute.
There’s 25 of them in my group.
April’s nickname is Nemo from Finding Nemo (courtesy of me!)
My arms are now slightly sunburned.
My feet are blistered from walking home.
Tomorrow is the jazz festival in Montreal.
We’re having salmon for dinner.
I work 40 hours a week. 8:30-4:30.
Emily’s camp name is Frisonette, which doesn’t have a direct english translation, Frise means curly, so it’s like a feminized nickname version of curly.
Children have also brought to mind the nature vs. nurture debate on everything. I’ll write more deeply about that on Friday.
The kids stole my tablet and took a million pictures, I’ll post them up later.
No work today
Slept until NOON! FUCK YES!
Walked to my work, it’s not far.
But far enough my lazy ass was not happy.
I’m getting a ride tomorrow morning, thank god.
I’m working with kids.
We went shopping for my lunch foods.
I got fucking delicious food.
Hummus and Pita, Submarines, garlic crackers and an assload of fruit.
We went swimming.
We ate fondue for dinner and dessert, fuck yeah.
And I got cupcakes :3
Red velvet cupcakes, with cream cheese filling inside and cream cheese icing on top.
And now we’re watching Bring It On! In French.
Cause Stephanie is 6 and adorable.
And apparently my host family picked me out of all the other girls because Sebastien said I spoke the best French.
I slept in and went swimming.
And then went to a BBQ with everyone else.
It felt like a massive amazing family BBQ
But with like amazing people on no bad history
And I went swimming in my clothes
EVERYONE IN MONTREAL HAS A FUCKING POOL
Omg it was so much fun
I already have a sunburn
I don’t work tomorrow
I work close to my house though
I’m in love with the amazing girls that are with me on this exchange <3
Montreal why are you so insanely glorious and incredible and perfect in every way?
Ontario is fucking huge and pretty.
Toronto is muggy and big as fuck.
Quebec is just as fucking muggy.
WHY IS IT ALL SO GLORIOUS!?
Toronto traffic reminds me of Seattle traffic.
Eastern Canada does their mail delivery system like the states, unlike stupid Alberta.
OMFG MILK IN A BAG! IN A BAG! MILK! BAG! WHAT?
I’m fucking hot and exhausted.
The train has the best fucking food I have ever had omg I could live off it forever!
When I speak in French I think in French, is that weird?
I’M WORKING AT A DAY CAMP GAIZ!
So this is my Montreal travel blog and the madness that has come up and is sure to continue. I really am quite lazy and have simply reblogged Siling’s posts about the train, mostly because she wrote them out quite accurately and she was the one with the camera. Now moving onward, I have so far written two cliffnote posts on my main blog of my travels and then realized most of my followers don’t care, they just want my hipster pictures. Therefor I have created this blog for my endeavors in Montreal on a work exchange program. Plus I just wanted to create yet another blog… I like making multiple blogs. But that’s another tale for another time. Basics right now are; I fucking adore my soul sisters; Siling, April and Isha. April and I are working together, Siling and I just click because we’re both Tumblr girls and we just have ridiculous conversations and Isha and April go to the same school and are both in IB and have never met. So they have the best dynamic, April is also a perfect mix of completely dark and perverted yet innocent at the same time, it’s magnificent. I am just awkward, loud, ridiculous, fat, proud, happy, sunburnt (already!), kind of fluent in French, totally perverted and dark, blunt and I like to laugh. So moving forward yet again, I’m going to reblog my cliffnotes and at the end of everyday I’m going to add more cliffnotes on to the blog. And I think I’ll introduce my family, my job and my house in photographs tomorrow evening! <3
