- A title headline in an article from my Psycholinguistics class
The egg scale was actually from the early 1900s - it was part of the museum! Unfortunately, I have no idea where to find one, but in a antique shop, or a specialty culinary shop.
The dribbles of last night’s rain falls off the ledges of the library, while a makeshift boat, made with a child’s imagination, floats in the deep puddle the rain has created.
The sun comes up for another day, and I can only wish it would stay for a little bit longer.
I miss summer already.
First of all, I want to welcome you as a future resident of the beautiful west coast! Believe me, once you get a taste of it, you never want to leave it.
It’s funny that you say that you’re from Alberta, because my neighbor from first year, Was actually from Alberta as well! Actually, the Uvic’s student population has over 80% coming from out of province, the highest rate east of Ontario. Because of this, you get a great diversity of people from all over Canada and other international countries. My living situation probably shows that example; I have two roommates from Ontario, one from Manitoba, and the other is on a year long exchange from Austrailia!
I can guarantee you that you won’t find a more geographically beautiful place than Victoria. Hands down. If you are big into a healthy lifestyle, thee mild weather year round let’s you bike and run to school; Victoria also gets half he rain as Vancouver, and let’s just say that Vancouver gts A LOT of rain. The hikes, trails and water sport opportunities are endless!
I think we get a bit of our hippiness just from he lifestyle the west coast has to offer, and you literally can’t get any more west coast than Victoria. Us granola heads just want to live and keep the environment the way it is. But don’t be alarmed if you see one too many dreadlocked kids on longboards with huge beards and tye-dye tshirts, they’re harmless. Pretty unique to the island too; Vancouver does have fewer granola heads.
He teachers that I have encountered are amazing and they do know a lot about there specialty in the academic field. Like most other professors, they hold office hours and are caring. I have had small classes which he proff would take us to the on campus bar for a beer or two (if you’re legal,
He city itself is absolutely gorgeous, with so much to do and see. The spring and summer gets filled with tourists because of all the photo i opportunities with parliament, butchard gardens, and all of the whale watching one can do!
Like you, I had to make a hard decision to choose between the same universities (I have lived in Vancouver prior to Victoria). Why I chose Victoria was because I wanted to see what else was out there in B.C. and I fell in love with everything Uvic had to offer. Since then, I have never looked back - Victoria was the best decision I had ever made.
So I hoped I answered your question! Let me know anything else that you ant to know about he university of victoria!
haha I guess not! I’m in Linguistics 370A - Psycholinguistics, but I believe we have the same prof! Dave McKercher!
Today I’m going to venture out of my normal cooking style and try different things. But I’m learning really quickly that timing is everything. Basically what is going to happen is that I’m going to set up 2 different dinners & desert today, one for myself, and one for the guests coming over tonight.
For myself, I’m making crepes.
For the second dinner, I have steaks & potato wedges.
And for desert, I am baking banana bread.
I’m trying to figure out as to how I want to spend my time making these things. We’ll see how they turn out over the next 3 hours.
It’s that awkward moment when I try to turn out the lights in the basement, only to scare the living daylights out of you with my nudity. So sorry with the silent ninja, lurkiness.
I laugh only because I imagine everyone else being nude in their respective rooms.
No regrets, but I will laugh myself to sleep.
p.s. It was bound to happen.
