I know it has been a long time since I have written when I get logged out of my blogging account and when my Gramma starts asking if I quit my blog. Well here I am. The last two months have in a way gone by so slow and in another flown by, but either way I have been super busy with school and work.
School online sucks
It is so weird not going to class everyday and seeing my professors. I literally googled them so I knew what they looked like so I could match a face to the name. As much as I love the program I am in now (for those of you who are new here, I am in the Faculty of Education at Schulich), it is hard to get motivated to do a class when you are just staring at your computer screen. The past four weeks I was in a physical classroom with grade 4/5/6 students and I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot. I am going to start writing down a list of the things kids say to me because they are pretty hilarious (ex. Are you a kid-adult? Because you aren’t married I could be your matchmaker) and the list goes on.
Classes online start up again next week and I am not looking forward to the Christmas crunch of assignments and tests. Although, I am sure that the next month and a bit will fly by before Christmas vacation!
A few months ago I updated my blog about how I renovated my room but I still wasn’t 100% happy so I made a few more changes. I figured since I am at least going to be home for the next year I should upgrade my bed. So I bought a full sized boxed mattress on Amazon and a new bed from Wayfair and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
I think that I have finally understood why I wanted to do #NOSHOP20 in the first place. Let me begin by saying that I have bought clothes this year. Not many, but some. However, before this year I used to buy things because they were on sale or cheap, not because I actually liked them. Now when I am in a store, I ask myself, do you really like this? will you wear this often? will this match other pieces in your closet?. These questions have allowed me to drastically reduce the amount of clothing that I buy just because. I am glad that I found a bigger purpose in #NOSHOP20 than just not buying things.
New Season = New Beginnings
Fall is always a big transition for me no matter where I am in the world and sadly this year I am only in Wheatley. However, it is nice to be at home for the first time in a long time and spend time with family whenever I can. This fall season I am trying to appreciate the little things in life more than I normally do; a good book, a long facetime with a friend, a Friday night in. I encourage all of you to do the same and to stay positive no matter what is thrown your way.
Stay safe and happy friends.
