Fall is almost here! Well, it seems like that due to the leaves changing color on the maple leaves (due to lack of rain) and cool, 15°C (59°F) rainy days. Nothing compared to the 30°C (86°F) felt almost a week ago. It seems that we finally got a taste of actual summer before it quickly disappeared to be replaced by fall. It is almost the time to start bundling up against the chilly wind and sip on some Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, since that drink seems to be back on the menu! What is not to love about the fall, the crisp air, scarves, changing colors, being thankful, remembering, pumpkin pie, falling leaves, cozy sweaters, Halloween; just to name a few! So shake off that old blanket and settle down for a cozy picnic in a meadow surrounded by fall colors. Or maybe, a photo shoot against the backdrop of the colorful autumn trees. Enjoy it while it lasts because winter is coming, and it sounds like it is going to be a crazy winter.
Gotta catch ’em all! Since Pokemon Go has been released, there has been countless new articles on people who crashed their cars, fell off cliffs, ponds and other mishaps. Accidents such as this -> Pokemon GO Accident is the reason why police are issuing warnings to stay safe while playing the game. In case you haven’t heard of it yet here is an article explaining what it is about -> Pokemon Go 101. They are also saying that people are getting robbed while playing, so watch out. It seems that all common sense, safety went out the window as the craze of trying to catch all the Pokemon in your city. Whether it was released in your area or you got the app through other means. Please remember to keep safe while playing the game, look both ways while crossing the street, watch your surroundings (not Pokemon) in case you run into trees, fall off cliffs, ponds, into cars. Your life is more important than a game! So please stay safe and try not to kill your self while searching for Pokemon!

Acai Bowl: is basically a really thick smoothie that’s been topped with oatmeal, fruit or peanut butter, and then you wolf it down with a spoon.

The base coat nail polish Strip me off by New York Color is by far the most creative nail polish product ever! It makes getting off regular and glittery nail polish quite easy. It beats having to take out nail polish remover when you made a mistake while doing your nails. It prevents getting the other nails getting damaged in the process. It’s great when you want to wear nail polish the one day and take it off the next. Or when you change your mind on what color of nail polish you want to wear. The only problem I have with it that it comes off too easily sometimes when you brush your nails over something hard and the corners start lifting. The best part it peels right off, in one strip without damaging your nails. Unlike before when people chipped over their nails with a harder object, ruining their nails.
1- Apply generously our Strip Me Off base coat
2- Wait until the white base coat becomes transparent
3- Paint your nail with favorite color/special effect nail polish
4- Just peel off to remove it
2 weeks until University is done! Can’t believe how fast the time went by. It seem like yesterday I started University, but now my 5 years are over and done with. Now it’s time to face the real world and try to find a job. Now I have to fit in everything that I want to do before the semester ends :S
Things I want to do!
Go down to the beach
Hike up this small hill at night for the city view and for the stars
Go see the seals
Explore more parks
I only have two assignments left and two essays to study for then I am done besides the readings I have to do for class 😦 Oh well! In terms of the New Years Resolutions I created in January, I have had no time to focus on them, so I will leave that for the summertime! I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos lately, especially DIY videos and it’s getting me into the mood to start working on DIY projects that I do not have the space to do. It’s also making me want to get candles from Bath and Body Works. Those candles are expensive, but I can’t burn any otherwise the university residence fire alarm will go off. I need to fix my Starbucks hot chocolate craving! There is now Trix Cereal in some store ins Canada for a limited time! There hasn’t been any in Canada since I was a kid and only in America, so happy dance to that! There is also French Toast Crunch in certain stores which makes me really happy.
Life of a University student can be quite hectic in terms of writing essays and doing lots of readings. Homework is never ending, but it is best to schedule everything out that you need to do on a calender or agenda. In order to keep organized and give yourself plenty of time to get work done or procrastinate. It is best to give yourself some free time as well, to enjoy being outside in the fresh air or go on hikes. Even exploring the city is fine as well, but it is best not to spend the week staring in front of the computer screen. I love how my University is just a 15 minute walk to the beach or the small mountain where you can see 360 degree views of the city. Sort of like San Francisco’s twin peaks, except way warmer…most of the time! I love listening to music, don’t know where I would be without it. I just love listening to Spotify where you can save hundreds of songs, make meaningful playlists and listen to them over and over again. Photography is also a big part of my life, and I love how there are amazing parks or beaches within a walk/bus ride to them. It is especially good when wildlife are use to humans to be able to get a closeup shot like the ones below.
