New challenges every day16.10.2015
O M G, I have been waiting for this moment for almost 6 weeks! Finally, I have been chosen as the smile of the week! Now I have the opportunity to share with you why I am always smiling!!
Since I started as a shortie at KISC I have had new challenges every day, the first of which was using English on a daily basis. At the beginning of the season I had difficulty to understand what people were saying to me, and I often replied “WHAT” and “I DONT UNDERSTAND “. Because of my high voice the other pinkies have now been mimicking me, I actually think it is quite a funny joke and do understand most of the time what other people are saying (when of course I’m not dreaming).
Another challenge I have had here has been how to ride my bike, as people that recognize that I’m very clumsy and lose my balance a lot of the time. On one day I managed to break a glass in catering and another when taking staff pictures in a nice tree I managed to fall down into the mud, so I was really sacred to try riding my bike as there was a chance I might break my bones! Here in Switzerland though I have found the courage to try riding my bike, and now I really enjoy using it every day.
The next challenge for me is hiking, as on my days off I have tried to travel as much as I can whilst getting to know Kandersteg area. When I hike here I often feel like I’m too old for this (and I am just 18 years old), but I always finish the hikes I begin and feel very proud afterwards! The weather has also been a challenge here, with yesterday being the first day of snow day for the autumn. For me this cold isn’t the weather that I am used to in Israel, so I hope that I have enough warm clothed to survive the season here.
Whilst thankfully not a challenge, the last thing I wanted to share with you is the reason that I came to KISC in the first place! Getting to know people from all around the world, learning about other cultures, languages, tastes of music and food, finding the common things between us, and most important of all, to HAVE FUN! I have had a great experience here at KISC so far, and hope that it continues for the next six weeks of my time here.
I hope you smiled when you read my blog!
