Rise Above

So today we decided to head out for lunch and go back to my favorite vegan restaurant in St. Catharines- Rise Above! They are fully plant based and have the most amazing and delicious food ever!

I’m going to be honest- not all places that have vegan food are good because a lot of places have very bland vegan options that really are not well done but Rise Above is totally different! I think one of the reasons their food is so delicious is because they make it themselves like even the vegan alternatives instead of using store bought stuff. It definitely makes a difference. Their food is so good most of the time I can’t even tell that it’s vegan and they don’t have the usual bland vegan options like salad (honestly no one wants that!) they have so many different and creative foods!

And their portions are amazing too! I usually eat way more than average and I rarely have food remaining after a meal but with this place I never seem to finish (which is great because I get to take it home and eat it again!)

Here are some pictures of the amazing food we had!!

If you’re ever in St. Catharines even if you’re not vegan I would still highly recommend checking out this place! I think you may be pleasantly surprised!

Life Updates!

I know I haven’t been blogging much or keeping up to date with everyone else’s blog

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!

My Week In Review

Sunday:

Turns out I couldn’t find my passport and after freaking out a little I realised I had forgotten it in the Bank. So unfortunately the bank wasn’t open till Tuesday because of Labour Day on Monday so I was kind of screwed.

Monday:

I had went to the orientation for international students at Brock. This was the first time I saw the University and it was huge! And yes I got lost a lot! I made some cool friends who seem really interesting and awesome!

Tuesday:

Went to the bank and got my passport back!! Yayyyy! Had Taco Bell which I’m kind of obsessed with right now!

Wednesday:

Got prepared for my first day at university by buying a bunch of stationery and notebooks at the dollar store! It was way more interesting than it sounds…

Thursday:

Had my first set of classes (Philosophy, Sociology and Earth Science!). They were super interesting and my teachers seem super smart and super interesting! Finally got my ID and Bus Pass! Made a friend!

Friday:

Had Psychology at 1. It was soooooo amazing I can not wait for the class to really start teaching! I just love Psychology so much!! Made another friend and saw a cute cat too! Also found a cool thrift store with second hand books!

I also checked out the clubs offered at my university and am deciding what to join.
