Happy Tuesday ECU,
Finally! After a long term of hard work (push, push, push) and the inevitable exhaustion after finals, the fall semester is finally over. The only thing on our mind right now is vacations and nothing else. Whatever everybody is doing for the winter break, whether it involves snow, the beach, or the city, there are plenty of things to do for those of you who will spending the break in Vancouver.
During one of the more work intensive weeks, when I feel like the whole world is slowly falling off it’s axis it’s nice to have a couple of hours to myself in order to relax. I usually tend to find places such a book stores and coffee shops more relaxing. So here are some places where that provide a nice relaxing environment in Vancouver, BC.
Grabbing a bite to eat in Vancouver is a common social practice amongst Vancouverites. Whether it’s for lunch, dinner, or simply a snack, this amazing city is the host of hundreds of restaurants that are scattered all over the metropolis. You can find anything from Chinese, to Thai, to Arabic, to Indian, to Traditional, to Modern cuisines. Vancouver is the perfect place to find anything and it’s usually just one click away. It’s not an uncommon sight to see young people indulge in all kinds of urban delicacies from all parts of town.
On Friday morning, I woke up with a tingling in my toes. It’s usually just a normal reaction to the cold but that day it was something different. When I stepped outside, I was momentarily blinded by a vision of white. Overnight, the world had been covered in snow and was now a pristine white. It reminded me of a blank canvas and how attending Emily Carr University of Art + Design has been exactly that. Attending a new school in a new country is a blank canvas. We all have the potential to create something beautiful or something that you will regret later.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
As you all know, on Friday it was Remembrance Day. I checked Google to find out more about this historical day, since I am from another country and we don’t have Remembrance Day back home.
For those of you who don’t know, Remembrance Day is a day where the armed forces are commemorated. They are celebrated in all commonwealth countries (including Canada), and have been since the end of WWI. I was startled to see how much this day is celebrated in Vancouver and how many events and ceremonies take place such as the UBC Ceremony and the annual Remembrance Day Concert at West Vancouver United Church.
