I’m okay.

Getting over a break up is difficult, but it feels amazing when you wake up one day and you come to the realization “I’m okay, it’s not the end of the world.”

My social support has been invaluable. I cannot thank them enough for the amount of comforting words and gestures that they have provided.

I guess this would be the most appropriate time to say…Image


June Joys

May has been one hectic month. Non-stop hours of work and volunteer, and not enough volleyball. I managed to squeeze in some beach volleyball this past weekend which I am thankful for.

On the brighter side, June is arriving! Not only will I have a metropass (since I lost my May pass), lots of activities are happening which I am greatly looking forward to. Going to Cuba at the end of May, into June. Convocation which also means I get to reunite with my Comm buds. LOTS of hot yoga. Dinner vouchers to a couple of delicious restaurants, which means more chances to blog. Competing in the Toronto City Chase for the first time. Cottage at the end of the month.



Public Transit Rant #1

There were no delays, caught all my trains/buses conveniently at each transfer and got to work 5 minutes earlier than expected. Awesome right? Nope, today was just terrible.

A girl’s hair was so big, it kept coming into my face. I had a 200 pound 6’3 man nudge me, but I’m only 120 and 5’2 so it was more like a shove. He also almost stepped on my foot which wouldn’t have been a pretty sight. Then, I had a woman breathing down my neck. The train was not packed enough for me to feel it, nor was she rubbing her body against mine. She was just breathing so hard that I could feel it go down my shirt.

Terrible day on the transit.

Urban Pantry

Restaurant: Urban Pantry
Atmosphere: Quiet, Family oriented, Modern, and Very Respectful
Meal: Mac & Cheese

Urban Pantry, located in the heart of Uxbridge, Ontario, is a very modern, quaint restaurant that deserves to be driven to just for the food and especially the service. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but I’ve noticed that the best service is always in the smallest of towns. Uxbridge being one of them!

Why would I go to Uxbridge? Well, for the most part, one of my best friends from university lives here.

About a few weeks ago, a group of us from our program came to have dinner here for their All-You-Can-Eat Mussels promo on Wednesday. I was not feeling mussels at that moment, but having compared what I ordered with the mussels, I would’ve chosen the mussels.

I ordered Mac & Cheese. Seems like a simple dish that I could make at home, but I’ve tried and I just can’t seem to get it right. I’ve ordered Mac & Cheese once at a restaurant and it was the best, so I was secretly expecting the same. Unfortunately, I didn’t think it was cheesy enough. It was more of a creamy texture. It was well done for the way it was presented, but not my cup of tea for a Mac & Cheese dish. For those who enjoy the creamy texture of it, this is up your alley way!

I think next time, I will try a steak. From the pictures on their website, it looks too delicious to pass!

Highlights of life

I’m not one to share my personal life with others. But my life is in a great place right now. I have great friends, the cutest niece and the best boyfriend anyone can have. What else can be better than this?


Not feeling the TGIF acronym…

It’s been about month since  my undergrad and I can definitely say, I am even busier than ever. Exact opposite of what I hoped it would be like.

For one, I have to pay more bills because of OSAP and “rent”. Secondly, now that I am working full-time, I am spending more because of the money flow. I’ve officially become a shopaholic, however now when I do shop, an image of my boyfriend’s disappointed expression veers me away from it. However, the thing that takes most of my time is my free time which can be associated as my volunteer time. I’ve taken on two more responsibilities to keep myself busy but I am a lot busier than initially imagined. It’s nice, but it cuts time out of my family, friends and myself.

This weekend, I will need to design a new template for my highschool’s alumni newsletter, and update another organization’s website to reflect the gala we are currently planning. Aside from that, I am going to do some DIY crafts! I am building a coat rack – just a simple one – and a board that will lean on my desk against the wall with small shelves to put everyday things, such as keys, access card, phone, iPod etc.

This weekend will be the busiest weekend of the month for me. So instead of looking forward to the weekend, I’m looking forward to the end of it. If only Monday can come any quicker!
