The Miracle of the Fall

by Jazzy

This summer has gone by so FAST! Tomorrow we’ll get to do our first exam of the year >>> math’s exam. I still recall the hot summer days by the beach or the warm summer nights enjoying the sunset by the waterfront. Ahhh… Why are summer vacations so short in Finland? I’m already kinda feeling like I need more of vacation.

But it is always fun to move into the colors of the fall. Finnish fall is so beautiful specially for its sunrises. Sun rises pretty late here compared to other countries. But it doesn’t bother me because I get to enjoy my walk to school. And the other good thing about fall is that nights here aren’t like tea time in other Southern countries. Fall is probably the only season that is totally balanced. I just L-L-L-Love ittt!  In my listings, spring has the 2nd place instead of 1st because it’s  much like summer.
But Fall is different. Fall is unique. In Fall everything living gets ready to go to sleep. But still all the fantastic colors keep reminding us of the love and warmth we’ve received from the nature.
All the orange, red, yellow, brown colors in the trees are a message for us humans.

“It’s time for us to rest. But don’t be sorry. For it’s time for joy. We’ll be back even sooner that you think. And we will be younger, greener and fresher. We are just like Phoenix. The only difference is that we reborn with cold, And Phoenixes with fire.
‘Til the next spring, Take care. “

Hurray, Sports Day!!

by Jazzy

Yesterday was one of those fun days spent outdoors with friends. We didn’t have a regular school day – we had SPORTS ONLY! The day was altogether very fun and well-organized. There were many great little competitions and things to do in group or alone. Such as rope pulling, walking on stilts, darts and horseshoes. The weather was great too!

We 9th graders, started the day with a motorcycle challenge track while the rest of the school started walking to a nice picnic place beside Porvoo River. The challenge track competition was really fun to watch. Really liked it. There was some really good riders tying it out!!!  After that, we went to the picnic place too. It was such a long walk from our school to the river. But it didn’t feel as long as it really was because of quiz marks pinned on the trees. Right after we arrived, it was time for rope pulling competition of the 9th graders! I was pulling too. 😉 But unfortunately my class didn’t win.

The rest of the day was pretty relax. There was some traditional games that we could go and play or we could just sit by the water with friend and enjoy the sun. It was a nice day. I liked it. 🙂
Now I’m just looking forward to the spring’s Sports Day.

Wishing Everyone a Joyful Fall!
