Best Saturday ever! Today's the day my mom drove all the way from Toronto to come visit me for the afternoon. She arrived around noon and brought me so much food! Before, it was always Kitty's side of the fridge that was well-stocked but oh ho-ho! How the tables have turned! My freezer is full of … Continue reading Day 57: Let it snow?
There's some sort of unwritten law that makes all Friday classes mind-numbing. I had my morning journalism class at 9 a.m. - not a particularly good time to start wrapping my brain around the Canadian judicial system.

There's a voting booth just for students so it was pretty convenient. None of my friends voted. I was about … Continue reading Day 52: E-Day
