However, I thought I would update you with everything that’s going on right now (admittedly not a lot…)

I have a bunch of assignments due soon (one tomorrow and 3 next week) and I have a midterm test next week for Sociology so I’ll mostly be revising this week which is very hard to do when it’s cold and snowing and all you want to do is curl up in bed and hibernate.

I also tried out some vegan Indian food from Touch Of India this week which was really good! Touch of India is one of the only two Indian restaurants in St. Catharines (at least that I know of!) and I thought it would be fun to try out their lunch specials!

It was really good and it pretty affordable too which is always a plus! I would definitely recommend it if you’re ever in St. Catharines!

I also skipped a seminar for the first time since I’ve been in university and felt kinda guilty about it but it wasn’t too important and I really did not want to go. It was super cold and snowy and I just could not deal with it.

So that’s pretty much what’s been going on with me!

Dream Journal!

So today in Psychology we were learning about sleep and dreams and talked about different dreams and how they can be interpreted and it remind me of High School because my friends and I used to discuss the dreams we had that night and we would try to analyse them. It was really a lot of fun!

Coincidentally, just last week I had a really insightful dream that helped clear some things in my waking life and I remember thinking “sometimes I learn more in my dreams than when I’m awake”. Dreams have always fascinated me because I truly believe they have an important meaning behind them and listening to your dreams helps you bring your unconscious thoughts into your conscious which is sometimes what we really need in life. Dreams have a way of telling you things about yourself.

I would really love to explore my unconscious more and that’s why I decided to get a dream journal! I don’t remember my dreams as often as I would like to but my professor said the more we try to remember them the more likely we are to actually remember them.

I’ll keep you guys updated on any particularly interesting (or weird) dreams I have!

Escaping Rocks

So I’m trying to escape another semester of  Earth Science but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to. I was thinking of taking Astronomy instead because I love literally everything to do with it! Also I am pretty sick and tired of learning about rocks in Earth Science… I’ll keep you guys updated and let you know how it goes!

Slightly More History Drama…

Firstly, if you’re new to my blog or haven’t been keeping up with my university posts please click here to catch up on what’s going on or you’ll have no idea what’s happening below!

So I was going over my results last week for my History Assignment 1 and what do I see in the comments section? My TA had written 5% off because I hadn’t handed in on time!

Image result for oh no they didnt gif

Well if you’ve been following my History class drama you’ll know that I didn’t hand it in on time because the damn History Department were trying to figure out how to add me to the seminars group online so I can upload the assignment and since it was 100% their fault they hadn’t added me to begin with I was told by my professor that they wouldn’t take off any marks for uploading it a day late!

Image result for this is your fault gif

So I immediately emailed my Professor who then told the TA marker to change it. He didn’t seem apologetic at all about the matter but my TA (who is super sweet and looks like nerdy Taylor Swift) wrote me an email immediately apologising since she didn’t know she I had been having trouble uploading the assignment which I thought was so sweet since she’s the only one who apologised (and very sweetly might I add!).

I really hope this is the last thing that goes wrong for me concerning History or anything in general!

I’m Free!

So my midterms finally ended yesterday and I’m finally a little more free! I’m getting some Korean food tomorrow (because I literally love Korean food so much!!) and planning on relaxing a little! I still have a psychology quiz left but it’s online and pretty easy!

The midterms went okay but not great. I’ll get the results next week!

It Gets Worse… Than A Bit Better…

So today I went to the Registrar’s Office as I was told to do and after wasting my time going there and waiting in line and stuff I’m told *surprise surprise* the Registrar’s Office doesn’t do seminar changes! I can’t even write in words how angry and flabbergasted I was when I heard this! So it turns out the people who keep telling me to go to the Reg Office are the ones who are supposed to be doing the seminar thing for me anyway!

Image result for i was so fucking mad gif

So I emailed them and told them and the only reply I got was ‘what seminar do you want to change to?’ I mean can you believe that? Maybe I’m being a little dramatic but how about a “I’m sorry I wasted like 4 hours of your time when I was supposed to be the one doing it and didn’t realise.” So rude.

After I emailed her which seminar I wanted to change to they finally changed it after a few hours and yes I’ve been able to upload my assignment. FINALLY!

Motivational Monday?

So usually Mondays are the day I have ‘motivational’ posts mostly quotes that I like and find inspiring but I have had such a rough day today I just don’t have anything inspirational to say.

Before I tell you the story of my day I would like to point out that I really enjoy studying at Brock and there are always negatives and positives in everything. This particular incident happens to be negative.

So I’m taking a History course that I kind of had to take because I’m majoring in History so it’s mandatory but I was looking forward to it because it’s different than any other course I’ve ever taken before. It is slightly boring sometimes but it’s still pretty interesting most of the times. Unfortunately, the universe does not seem to want me to enjoy this course because for some reason something or the other comes up that ruins it.

Firstly, it’s on Monday morning. Like why? Juts why are there even lessons on Monday morning??

Secondly, my seminar got cancelled and they didn’t even email me about it which I thought was kind of unprofessional. Like you email me a bunch of university crap about events I couldn’t care less about but you don’t email me about my seminar being cancelled? To be fair it was shown on my schedule but I had just taken a screenshot of it earlier and I didn’t really bother checking again and I didn’t realise I would have had to. I’m also not used to checking everything online since it’s the first time I’m doing that and we never really did much online in Kenya.

That brings us to today. I had to hand in an assignment and apparently I can’t hand it in till I go to the Registrar’s Office and change my schedule. I started going to the Wednesday seminar but I hadn’t been able to officially change my schedule because it takes forever in the registrar’s office and I had gone there earlier but I waited for 2 hours and then had to leave because it wasn’t my turn yet and I had a class. And no one told me that I would have to go to the Registrar’s Office before I have to hand in the assignment. Is it really that hard to give me those details? I’m a new student and I don’t know how the system works. So now I need to go tomorrow and get it done before 2 in the afternoon and I’ll have to miss my Earth Science lecture because there’s not other way and I’m so mad because I’m already falling behind in Earth Science and I like going for the lecture because at least with the explanations I can understand better.

I mean everything is online in this university so why do I have to go to the stupid office for the seminar? And they’re the ones who cancelled the seminar so isn’t it their job to put me in another one? I feel like they’re trying to make me do their job for them and I hate that.

Sorry for the rant I’m just very mad right now.

My Classes And Joining A Club

Philosophy– Okay so this is my new favourite subject!! It’s so deep and interesting and it’s the only subjecting where having multiple existential crisis actually helps you get good marks! And the cherry on top? My professor is absolutely hilarious and looks like George Lucas!

Psychology- So we’re basically learning stuff I’ve learnt in High School again which is awesome because it means I don’t have to work excessively hard and I already understand what the professor is talking about!

Sociology- It’s REALLY interesting!! I am going to learn about Karl Marx soon which I’m really looking forward to!

Earth Science- Okay I’m not going to lie it’s a lot more difficult than I thought it was but it’s also really interesting! Minus when we learn about rocks. That’s kind of boring to me.

History- Okay again I’m not going to lie the course I’m taking right now is boring. It’s not horrible it’s just a bit boring. I mean how much can you know about The British Isles? Apparently a lot.

And the club I joined was of course *drum roll* CREATIVE WRITERS CLUB!! The boy who’s in charge of it looks a bit like Augustus from The Fault In Our Stars 😂 I really hope he doesn’t read this post…
