December 29th – Accomplishments and things that I have learned from them.
1) Accomplishment – I built my first gingerbread house with my twelve year old brother.
What I learned: Regular icing is not a substitute for icing sugar, and that patience is the key when melting sugar to use as glue. It became really messy.
2) Accomplishment – Shoe shopping with a guy.
What I learned: One of the most boring things ever. Now, I understand how significant others/partners/friends feel when dragged around by a fe/male who cannot decide on what to get. yawn*
3) Accomplishment –Ride the new subway cars in Toronto -twice!
What I learned: These cars have been running since the summer, but I was never lucky enough to catch one. I really like how easy it is to go from car to car, how accessible it is for individuals in wheelchairs, but most of all – all the handle bars are sprayed with something that kills microbes! Being observant on the train, and watching all those patrons spread microorganisms has always grossed me out.
