Canada

I have japanese class in about an hour....I'm unusually excited for it because we'll be witnessing a genuine tea ceremony! The teacher said it was alright to dress up....I totally would...if I owned a kimono. xD

Anyways, something that's kinda bothered me.

My peers have a strange fascination with Canada. They refer to it as paradise and everyone says they're going to move there when they grow up. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Canada is awesome, I just don't think it's that great. People talk about Canada like it's so superior, I can't help but interject sometimes with all the truths I've learned from strawberrykaoru xD. Apparently people like it because of "free health care" and because people speak french. (Yes, most of these fans currently take French as a second language.) As far as I know, only Quebec has all the French speakers.

Well to each their  own....but I'm starting to see this as a case of "The grass is greener on the other side" of the border.
