Ah, finals season.
I am so used to having daily breakdowns during final seasons that I am feeling a little weird about this final season. I am way too relaxed and that has left me feeling slightly confused, I guess that’s what happens when you only have 2 finals.
Today (Tuesday) turned out to be way more eventful then I could have ever anticipated for a study day. It involved 2 take out meals (um yes!), way too little veggies and fruits, and alcohol. On top of all that, it also featured quite a bit of studying, woop woop!
Forgive me for what may seem like lower quality pictures, I spent most of my day taking pictures with my phone which does not have the best camera.
For breakfast, I made my blueberry and white chocolate single serving pancake, where I used strawberries and dark chocolate instead. I tried to use all the batter to make one huge pancake and well, it made kind of a mess, but it was good!
I made my way downtown to meet with a friend to study, we met up at Kafein where I had the most delicious mocha.
I really enjoyed this coffee shop, it is super close to where James lives and has a pretty awesome menu. It turns into a bar and poetry reading place at night, which is quite cool. It had two floors with very different vibes, I think it had something for everyone!
Around 5 o’ clock we met up with James and another friend and enjoyed happy hour! I had the apricot beer from St-Ambroise on a terrasse on a warm spring day, it felt pretty great. The deal was 2 for 1, so I got two of these beers for the price of 7.50$!
We went back to James’ apartment and although I had every intention of making an avocado and shrimp pasta recipe, my hunger and need for immediate food took over and we ordered Indian from Thali!
I had a vegetarian platter with Chana Masala, Baingan Alu (potato and cauliflower dish) and Mattar Paneer (peas and tofu in a yummy sauce), with rice and naan bread of course! This was so yummy!
Studying is way more fun when you get to act like a teacher and write everything down on a white board.
Quite the day, am I right? Getting all this fun in as well as all this studying feels great! It’s not often that you get to unwind during finals, so I definitely appreciated this day.
Tomorrow I am actually getting my hair dyed blonde!! Dun dun dunnnnn, let’s see how it turns out, I will keep you all posted.
Have a great one guys and happy WIAW!
