Thanksgiving: University Edition

Happy Belated Thanksgiving fellow Canadians!


 Unfortunately for this university student, I was not home for the festivities. Academia called! Yes, midterms and assignments were still on my radar for the next few days. Although they have more content, I think I prefer finals. No classes, and a time period actually dedicated to studying! Not trying to study and go to lectures, do readings and weekly assignments.
Even though I wasn't home with my family, I still had a turkey (well, chicken) dinner. The roomies and I did a little Thanksgiving shindig with veggies, chicken (a 15lbs turkey was a bit too much to handle, I did miss the taste though), sweet potatoes (awesomely covered in marshmallows) and I of course baked la tarte a la citrouille, and if room for extras, we also had apple pie. I'd say it was a success! This Thanksgiving, I was in yoga pants and a hoodie - I can certainly say that's a first (along with everything else).
If I were home, my outfit would look something more like this:

October 5 - First Post (!)

I am finally doing it. I am creating a blog. (Well technically I've already created it, now I am blogging). It has been suggested to me a few times over the years, but never something that really piqued my interest. Now that school is in full swing, I hope to use this blog as somewhat of an escape from the madness that ensues.

Post #1:
Summer seemed like it was going to last for a few more weeks here in Halifax! Unfortunately over the past few days, the weather did a 90 degree turn (not snowing or below 0, but cooler, windier, and rainier - I don't think it justifies a 180). Due to this shift in weather, I am constantly craving 3 things: my bed, hot coffee drinks (and tea), and exercise. Bed: my bed is comfy. Very comfy. Brand new, stay-in-bed-for-a-week comfy. So when all I can see outside are trees shaking and grey skies, bed sounds like a viable option. Hot drinks - need I say more? Yummy flavours warming up your body is always nice. I am partial to Vanilla lattes and Tazo Zen green tea. I start and end nearly every day with a cup of green tea. Lastly, exercise. It's not often you will find me at the gym. I do like to stay active but I prefer being outdoors (or swimming). So laying in bed for what feels like a lifetime and filling up on lattes can give me an urge to do something good for my body. Okay, I will go for a run after I'm finished here.

Have a wonderful Sunday! I hope it's sunny somewhere.
