Fall bucket list

Fall has officially started. Who’s excited ? I know, I am.

I decided to have as much from fall as I can this year. To avoid having “I don’t know what to do” moments I’ve created a list of 24 things/activities. I’ll try to accomplish every single one of them. Feel free to join me and add yours as well !

Have fun !

Trying Brazilian food

Today was my first time eating Brazilian food. I was in Ljubljana with my family and we went to Brazilian restaurant for lunch. We normally don’t go to foreign restaurants, we don’t even eat out that much. But let’s just say that today was a special day for us. My brother finished college, so we got to celebrate that.

He was the only one who has ever been there, so he was our guide I guess. He ordered the food and then it all began. First off we took our plates and got some salat and side dishes in the self-service kind off thing.

There were a little wooden things next to our plates. They were red on one side and green on the other. As I found out, they supposed to work as traffic lights. When you turn green side up they start bringing you food. And when you have enough you turn the red side up, so they stop.

The waiter brought us food every few minutes I’d say. Well basically when the meat was baked. We started off with chicken and a little sausage and then continued with many other sorts of meat. We got a chance o try a bit “bloody” things as well. I’ve never eaten that and it doesn’t sound good to me. Because why would you like to eat raw meat (even tho it wasn’t raw, it was just prepared like this). I tried it anyways, because I’m a curious person and I like to try everything. It wasn’t that bad, but I felt a bit sick because I’ve eaten so much,so I didn’t enjoy that taste as much as I could.

After all of our buttons were open on our pants, we decided to stop. They literally bring you food untill you can’t eat anymore. If you try every sort of meat you can choose which one did you like best from all of those and order it again or it simply goes from the start again. Crazy right ?

There was also a dessert included in the price. As always there is always enough room for a dessert, no matter how much have you eaten. We got baked pineapple with cinnamon if I remember correctly. It was very juicy and delicious. Never eaten that before either.

That was our “lunch” which was at like 4 o’clock so it lasted till about 7.00 p.m. We’ve eaten so much that there was no space for dinner and I have a feeling that I won’t need a breakfast as well. It was a nice experience and I would definitely go back. I think I should explore more when it comes to foreign food.

That’s it for today. Have you ever been to Brazilian restaurant before? What do you think about it? Tell me in the comments !

Frrrrr

It’s nothing special if you see a freshman with different drawings and “Frrrs” on the 1st September. There’s a tradition in our country that allows that. Is some kind of a baptism for the new high school students. And that day has arrived for me as well.

Today was my first day of high school. As a “Fazan” (as we call freshmen here) I was very nervous. I had no idea what to expect. During the years it became more than colouring freshmen bodies, they developed new tricks as well. You have to know that people from higher grades, like seniors for example do that. Not just anyone. There are basically no rules. It doesn’t matter which school are you going to, or if you know the person that draws on your skin …

I have to admit that it wasn’t that bad. I expected a lot worse. I heard that somewhere they were throwing eggs, corn, flour in the freshmen. But I left with just a few drawings. I did heard a loud “Frrrrrrrr” when I was walking by some older students tho. It also happened that they went pass us with markers, because they thought we were still in primary school. Ha !

But I wasn’t nervous just because of this. In the school that I’ll be visiting for the next four years, they also made challenges for us. All the freshman classes were competing against each other, with no specific prize (winner supposed to be the most promising class). For each challenge we had to pick someone to made it which was even harder, because we didn’t know each other. I’m very glad that I got two of my friends in the same class as me and I also got very well along with four other people. I just didn’t really had a chance to met the others.

So if I tell more about challenges …first one was that a volunteer from each class had to count all the stairs in the building. Nobody got it right tho. Then there was a quiz, karaoke and lastly oath. We had to promise a few things to become official high school students.

Another thing happened, that I knew it will and I was afraid of it. My surname begins with A. That means that I’m always on top of the lists with students, etc. I prayed to God that I will not be in 1A, because that will mean that I am going to be the first one out of everybody. Like first of first. You get me ! And this was exactly what happened. I was not that scared tho, because it happened really quick and it wasn’t awkward at all. I also got a class teacher from my hometown which I was really glad about. I don’t know her well, but she is very kind.

And then we went into our classroom and around the school. I haven’t talked to everyone yet, but I’m looking forward to do it tomorrow. I like meeting new friends and I have a feeling that I will get very well along with some that I can’t even remember their names.

Well, yeah..that was my first day of high school. For any future freshmen out there, I wish you good luck. Everything is going to be all right at the end. I was scared so much, but I really enjoyed the day and I’m looking forward to go to school right now ( I do not miss the classes, not at all, just people).

And if you already went trough that experience …let me know how it was ! Do you have any traditions like we do here ? How does it look like to be a freshman in your country ? Tell me in the comments !
