So I realized I haven’t actually made a post on this since March 17! Goodness! No wonder my head is full of thoughts. I just picked out some of my favourite food pictures to tag into this. I’ve had some serious deliciousness during this time.
I loved the cookies I made: chocolate chip almond & peanut butters! I used the leftover dough for delicious cookie dough ice cream (I bought Almond Dream to use for this but seriously should stick to Bliss Coconut Ice Cream because it it the most delicious).
I’m starting to reach the point where I have too much work to do to actually finish it all, so I made a list of the bare minimum that is necessary to accomplish. Prioritizing for exams is very important. I also pulled out a lot of my Indian food from the freezer, so that should keep me sustained for all the ridiculous studying that I need to do.
So what have I been up to? I’ve had some awesome hang outs with great friends that I love!
I randomly met a bunch of awesome grad students after a talk on animals & law by Gary Francione (lots of thoughts on that which will have to wait for post-exams post). We went out for burgers and then just spent the whole evening together. One of them lives next to my building, so I had a bus buddy from downtown! It was awesome :D and we had the greatest conversations.
Somewhere at this point my friend introduced me to Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy and I’m in love with Noel Fielding now. What I would do to find some tall skinny person in tight black clothes with eyeliner. #swoon
With my friends: we’ve hit up the Noodle Box twice, we finished our constitutional law assignments, we watched Hunger Games! My Hunger Games evening was so much fun: my friend came over for Indian take out with Doctor Who watching, followed by Hunger Games, then the local watering hole. While waiting at the bus stop, I bumped into my bus buddy from the previous week! It was awesome and on our way home, I suggested she come over for my vegan banana brownies and she AGREED! So at 2 am, we watched Blink from Doctor Who and ate brownies. #AwesomeSauce
The next day my friend came over to help study and do brownies. I find I work better when people are around sometimes…I really need to find my study sweet spot.
I keep meeting new people and feeling very comfortable with speaking to strangers, which excites me because it helps with the ultimate political goals. Yesterday, I hit up bubble tea, Vietnamese restaurant, and vegan dessert at Market Green. This was so much fun, with two great and lovely ladies.
Yesterday was fun too! Post classes ended up going to the beach, then coffee shop, then pub with my friend. When being dropped off, I suggested we eat brownies & my friend AGREED! (<— notice this weird theme?). We were going to play my Wii but the batteries of the remotes were dead, so we ended up watching Doctor Who. I love the 2-part library episodes with vashta nerada. So much fun!
Other things that I am into now courtesy of a particularly enabling friend (she introduced me to Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy): The Mighty Boosh, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and Rachel Maddow. I’ve also watched the Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2010 twice now. Richard Ayoade & Noel Fielding are hilarious! #NicheCorner
