I’m Not Dead: An Instadump

Hey guys, sorry for disappearing off of the face of the internet for over a month like that! A lot of life changing things have happened since my last post, many of which flew by too quickly or was just too good/unreal for me to even comprehend!

Basically, after years of dreaming about it, I finally boxed up my life this past summer, said goodbye to all of my friends, family and bf (sad face) in Winnipeg, and hopped onto a train headed East. It felt surreal through the months leading up to my departure, and even now, I can’t believe it sometimes–but, yup–I really am living and studying in the heart of Toronto! (And I have the work load of a stressed-out Fashion Communications student to prove it.)

It’s such a cliche, but since moving into residence, it’s been one amazing life experience after the other. I don’t know what it is, but there’s just something about moving away for school and living in dorms that seems so damn magical…like you’re a part of the culture they always portray in movies and TV, but it is actually so much better in real life! I could probably write you pages about my first week as a Ryerson Ram, but since pictures are worth a thousand words, please accept this instadump in place of a 100,000 word novel.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got an Art History textbook over here the size of an average house cat, and it’s not going to go read itself…

Via Rail is beyond awesome. Just look at the breakfast they serve! Food for gods, I tell you.

Boats and hoes! My friend Alec and I party it up on the yacht cruise during O-week.

I used to hate pep rallies and basketball games, but it’s different when you’re a frosh in uni. TRUST.

Oh yeah. I also went to Toronto’s very first Fashion’s Night Out! And I may or may not have had an emotional breakdown during my first visit to Holt’s. Oops.

My current life in two pictures.
