Valentine’s and Reading Week

This week is Reading Week; the week-long break most university students have during 2nd semester to take time to relax.

Well… that is the theory…

Really, at OCAD i find, reading week is when professors think “Oh my students have a week off! Let’s give them extra work because they have time!”

… WTF??!!

I think I can speak on behalf of the OCAD student body that this idea is S.T.U.P.I.D. considering the school got a bad rep last fall about more than half the students were depressed or had some other mental health issue…

Not really a good idea to create more stress is it??

Anyways, the day that started Reading Week, surprisingly, was Valentine’s Day. In retrospect, Valentine’s was perfect timing this year; starts on reading week, was on a Friday… therefore very ideal for couples to express their love to one another (or singles to buy discounted chocolate for the weekend to drown their loneliness…).

This year I was not a loner on Valentine’s…

Yes… I had a date 🙂


Friends = Bras

I can honestly say that deciding to attend OCAD University was the best decision I have ever made!

Not only is what I’m learning exactly what I actually want to learn, I have an amazing set of friends with very dynamic personalities that I just love! This post is a shout out to you guys and you know who you are 🙂

Comparing what I have been through at my previous school, I feel very fortunate because this new abundance of people willing to accept who I am is more than I could have ever asked for (Wow this got full of cheese really quickly lol).

You may be wondering why the post is titled Friends = Bras. Well, its like the saying goes:

“A friend is like a good bra: hard to find, comfortable, supportive, always lifts you up, makes you look better, never lets you down or leaves you hanging, and always close to your heart.”

Thank you guys so much for being good friends! LOVE YA! ❤
