I don’t know where to begin this post. I have been trying to write for weeks but I have been struggling to find words to write down. This is not how I (or you probably) expected 2020 to be going. But, we can’t do anything about it so we just have to try to make the best out of a bad situation. At least that’s what I keep telling myself!
Since coming home in March the days seem to be flying by at an impossible speed. Though most of the past few months have been spent inside, a lot has happened.
I finally finished my undergraduate degree after a very weird ending to the semester filled with a lot of Zoom meetings and essay writing. I received my degree in the mail a few weeks ago and I was super happy to close another chapter in my education career. I graduated from Glendon College – York University with an International Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with French Specialization with Honors. If that isn’t a mouthful I don’t know what is!
Starting in September I am starting my next chapter at the Schulich School of Education at Nipissing University to become a French teacher. I am so excited (I mean counting down the days excited) to be going into a program that I am so passionate about. However, COVID seems to be ruining a lot of things, including the start of my semester. Until at least December, I will be taking my classes and living at home.
Back when I came home in March you may have seen a post about my clothing reorganization. Well I have continued organizing and I just finished a mini room renovation due to the fact that I am going to be home for a while now. I purchased a new desk chair from Wayfair but I didn’t want it to be too matchy matchy with the rest of my room so I got in a green/gray color and I love it! I also made a bed skirt out of an old painters drop cloth that we had and I am super happy with how it came out. All I have left to do it change out some of my hangers on my clothing rack and then I will be finished! I also am looking into getting some smart light bulbs that connect to my Alexa if anyone has some recommendations!
For those of you who don’t know my sister Ivy has a puppy named Nash. I am looking after him this summer and I have to say I am a tad bit obsessed with him because he is seriously the cutest thing ever. If you want to check out more cute pictures follow him on Instagram @nashtheminiaustralian
I hope you are all staying safe and having a good summer so far! Keep your eyes open for a new post coming soon about my #noshop20 and thanks for reading ❤
