This past week it snowed so much, they had to close the school. To be honest, it was really fun because we could rest, relax and catch up with our duties. I really like cold weather, and as the legend says we have six more weeks to cope with. I never imagined how much I could fall in love with New Paltz. Even though I’m looking forward to going to NYC, it’ll definitely be a pitty to leave New Paltz behind.
Today I woke up to the sound of snow. When I looked at the window everything was white. I could´t help but think “I´m very grateful and happy for being here”. It was one of those little unforgettable moments that I can´t understand why some people take for granted. I lived in Canada during High school so of course I had seen a lot of snow before, since we don´t have any in México, but this was different. I realized that I am surrounded by new people, people who are my family now. So all I can think now is this moment, and this people will be in my life forever. Just because I want them to be.
Quote of the day: “Be careful who you make memories with. Those things can last a lifetime.“
P.S: Since there were no classes today, my friends and I decided to make a snowman. Here are some pictures I took with my phone. It was so fun!
Last weekend I decided to go skiing. It was pretty spontaneous because I didn’t even know we were going as I was just one more name on the waiting list. To my surprise, they called us two days before Saturday and we had the pleasure to go to Hunter Mountain.
I already knew how to ski, but it had been like 2 years since I hadn’t put a pair of skis so I can say I was a bit nervous at the beginning but still, so excited. After practicing a couple of times in the blue and green mountain, I had the guts to go down a black diamond mountain for the first time in my life! Even though I fell down two or three times, nothing happened and I don’t fear any mountain now.
Skiing is such a wonderful experience and Hunter Mountain is definitely the place to be because of the beautiful view and nature you experience. That feeling of adrenaline through all of my veins and the unlimited speed I could experience down every slight turn, hill or steep path is priceless.
Skiing while it snows and feeling the chilly wind in your face is truly amazing!
So, it should be spring by now but here in New Paltz the weather doesn’t really gets it. Its snowing, it has been raining and its pretty cold. I already got used to the cold, but for the people that we come from really hot weather its a big deal to go out in this type of cold. What I mean is that in Monterrey kids don’t go to school if the weather goes lower than 1ºC.
For me snow means fun, so that’s why we really enjoyed when Nemo happened a couple of weeks ago. We went out and took some nice pictures enjoying the snow, we had a snow fight as well, it was really fun.
I don’t know what am I going to do when I go back to Monterrey, it will be summer and the weather is going to be near 40ºC.
