29 Struggles Only Canadians Will Understand

The house hippo one was the worst! I really wanted one 😦

Thought Catalog

1. Finding yourself regularly apologizing to inanimate objects that you bump into.

2. The uphill battle of texting with mittens on.

3. Faithfully buying roll-up-the-rim cups every day for two months, only to find the winner of the grand prize dug the cup out of a trashcan.

4. The tragic day in your life when you realized the house hippo doesn’t actually exist.

If I could speak 9 languages…

Hey blog world! I saw a video on YouTube about a polyglot who speaks 9 languages; Irish, English, Spanish, German, Catalan, Portuguese, French, Italian, and Hebrew. Here’s the link by the way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-tTFKra3Ik

This gave me an idea for a blog post!

If I could speak 9 languages (besides English), they would be…

1. Russian – My dad is Russian and I know a bit of Russian too. I hope to learn more Russian as time goes on.

2. French – Since kindergarten we’ve been learning French. It’s really similar to the English language.

3. Arabic – The school I go to is multicultural and I have two school friends (Myra and Amina) who are both Muslim. Their language seems good to learn too.

4. Norwegian

5. Hebrew

6. Italian

7. Chinese

8. Spanish

9. Portuguese

10. Finnish

If you could learn any languages, what would they be? Tell me in the comments!

Hey blog world! I haven’t been posting much because I was busy and all that. On the daily post website, another given challenge was to write a story only using 50 words! I’m going to tell you how my year has gone so far!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m in grade 10 this year. April is here and it’s almost as if grade 10 never existed! I’ll be in 11th grade in September. I am in two dances which are hip hop and jazz! It’s really fun! I’m also in the girl guides (Rangers)!
