Took a tour of the University of Regina over the weekend. This U of R sign apparently costed close to a million dollars so I just had to take a photo with it. Gophers apparently are a common rodent in Saskatchewan. This is not road kill, it’s alive. I have no idea what it was just on the sidewalk. But it’s cute. I also dropped by the First Nations University. Just look at that teepee building.
I went to check out the local museum which has Canada’s largest silver collection. The man that collected this had no wife and I assume has no where else to spend his money other than collect shiny objects like a magpie. He also owned a mutated calf that had 8 legs maybe it was meant to be a Siamese calf.
The skies are kind a grey and the lighting could be better but I sill managed to capture some of the beauty of the badlands.
Been so busy trying to get everything set up and settled down in my new city that I have neglected to write an update. It’s been two full weeks now that I’ve arrived to Weyburn.
This is a picture of my parents have their last dinner with me before they left me to go back to Toronto. I had a couple days of hotel breakfast during my orientation.A few pictures of the view driving into Saskatchewan. It’s really flat out here and you can see flatness for miles and miles
Super cute utensils and tableware. Me just sending photos of my dessert and making ppl jellyWe all are pretty into omuriceI got the eel omurice.Basically eating a mountain of sweet toast covered in ice-cream.
Went snowboarding in Blue Mountain. This is my last outing with my friends before I go on another journey to a far away land to chase my dream job. Big news readers! I am moving to the province of Saskatchewan next!
Here is a picture of me and my friends. We got a day pass and snowboarded 3pm -9pm…so many hrs!Night time photo before we left the mountainsTried out a local pizza joint called Pie…I ordered a wrap thats made of thin crust pizza dough and a cauliflower soup. Yummy.I swear I wore knee pads …but they shifted and I fell on ice. OUCH! Me being me I think bruises are cool and I wear them like a badge with pride.
My first time at a car show. It has never really interested me in previous years to go. But now that I’ve gone for the first time I can sort of understand why it’s amusing. This is my favourite…it’s so tiny and cute
I do not collect lego but I found myself sifting and feeling through packages in order to find a batman with a rubber ducky floaty.My housemates collection If you don’t know already I love getting socks as gifts especially novelty ones. These are perfect for winter sports. Even goes with my pink knee pads for snowboarding Making myself healthy food as usual. Im on a mission to gain 5-10 ibs the next two months because I’m severely underweight. So to celebrate our one year of dating (wow I’m actually content for once) my bf took me out for Italian fine dining. Me being the weirdo that I am decided to pick the most unknown sounding food items…I didn’t know “Orata”was a fish, but then again it was under seafood. Don’t like fish but this was okay.
I love love love meat and cheese boards.
Am I into fancy Italian cuisine dinner date expereinces? Ermmm. The best advice I have ever gotten about eating fancy Italian food is to only order appetizers only and I seem to continuously agree with that one. I always want multiple appetizers but am never interested in any main courses. Conclusion, it was a lovely dinner date and I’ll just keep my odd and quirky food desires to myself.
Someone once asked me if I could be any element on earth what would I be and I said a strong majestic tree and when I asked him the same question in return he said sand. I didn’t understand him, sand to me was very plain and I couldn’t admire the characteristic of sand. But then he told me that glass was made of sand, beautiful glass. He was right. He opened my eyes to new perspectives. He showed me things and thoughts I never thought of.He said that when he becomes god and we’re living on clouds he will grow me a glass tree. Together we will be majestic, strong and beautiful.Today this Chihuly exhibition reminded me of those silly childish dream and fantasies we once shared together. The beauty of sand coming to life. The free, creative and wise mind I admire. I hope that one day I can be as inspirational and eye opening to someone else as he was to me. Just because were adults, it doesn’t mean we have to stop dreaming, fantasizing, losing creativity through social conformity.
Despite that I can’t share this dream moment with the influential person in my memories… Today I got to go see this exhibition with my boyfriend and I hope that one day we can dream seemingly impossible dreams together too and be able to witness it come to life together.
Nothing like grilling meat. My house smelled like intense BBQ after the meal. Thank goodness my housemate closed my bedroom door in advance so our rooms/ clothes didn’t soak up the smell.
