Seeing a hockey game in Canada: ✔ check!

GradLife McGill

I don’t know anything about hockey.

Well, this instinctive thought is not entirely true: I know it’s like soccer, but players have to make goals by sending a puck—not a ball—in the net, and they have to move this puck around using a stick, instead of kicking it with their feet. Oh, and in the case of ice hockey, they have to skate on ice, instead of running. And they wear a lot of protections that look quite uncomfortable. That’s all I know.

I never cared very much about hockey. In my home country, Italy, it isn’t very popular. And even though I grew up in the Chisone Valley, where the Olympic Winter Games took place in 2006, and where there is, in the nearby Pellice Valley, an ice hockey team named HC Valpellice Bulldogs, I still just wasn’t exposed to it and didn’t think about it.

  1. Ϝirst off Ι want to sayy grеat blog! I had a quick question іn which I’ԁ like to asҝ if you don’t mind.

    I was interestеd to know how you center youгѕeⅼf and cleɑr your head prior tto writing.
    Ι’ѵе had trouble clearing mmy thougһts in getting my ideas oᥙt.

    I do enjoy writing but it jսst seems likе the fіrst 10 tߋ 15 minutes are wasted
    јust trʏing to figure оut hoow to bеgin.Any ideas οr tips?


    1. Thank you! Those 10-15 minutes are not “wasted”, they are part of the process. Writing is a just hobby for me… so, when I don’t feel like writing, I just don’t, and I don’t see it as a problem. I understand that for professional writers this can be a real problem, though.
