september, october & november

Hi everyone!

I have been busy over the past few months. I keep thinking "I haven't made a blog post in soo long" but in reality it's only been, what, 3 months? The summer was a relaxing period for me and I had a lot of extra time to write posts (even though I didn't do that). Ah, HOW I wish I could go back to then...

I started working on the 25th of August in a... favourite Canadian fast-food restaurant (can I say the name? It's Tim Hortons). Work is work. I don't like working but there is nothing wrong with where I work. Oh well, now I don't feel so guilty when I drop $10 everyday at Starbucks so that's a plus.
I also I began university on the 1st of September. I began university and working in the span of a week and I think it was a bad idea. So university. No one told me how utterly boring university would be. I'm studying Archaeology. Maybe that's why.
Archaeology is... probably not for me. I have taken to watching Netflix and BBC iPlayer instead of listening in lectures. I watch Parks and Rec in my Human Origins class and I catch up on EastEnders in my Intro to Archaeology class. As you can probably assume, I am not doing that well in school. Hey, as long as I pass.

I sort of mentioned him in one of my last posts but I have a new baby brother. He was born in June and his name is Enzo. So I have the perfect mix of two sisters and two brothers. how lucky I am. Enzo is now 6 months. It's been weird how easily Enzo has fit into our family. Even the first week of him being here, I couldn't imagine our house without him.

I was invited to a few Halloween parties but in the end took Milo, Coco and Enzo out trick-or-treating. What can I say, I'm boring -- I mean a family person!
On the down-side, everyone thought I was the mother. It aways makes me feel uncomfortable...

and now we're in November. I am finishing my semester at the end of this month (then exams!) and then I will be working all through December.
I don't think November will be a particularly busy month. I have a surprisingly small amount of assignments due. However, I have a few plans with friends to go downtown at the end of the month.
Hopefully I will be confident to take pictures in public and post them here.
I also think I will finally post some of the recipes I have been keeping in case I have no idea what to post because I just need to get into the groove of blogging again.

Okay! So this was a short but completely accurate recap of the past 2 months of my life. Have any of you been doing anything (or nothing) lately? I'll be back soon - surely sooner than 3 months.



  1. Hey Iona! You have been missed! I've also been pretty bad at keeping up with my blog too :/ I'm swamped with university work! (Belated) congrats for your new baby brother, he is adorable!!

    Have you tried another subject that might interest you besides Archaeology? You strike me as an artsy person- maybe something in the Arts? Or maybe Sociology or Psychology? Or anything else?

    1. I feel the same! I feel like I've been in a blogging rut, but I want to get back into the swing of things,even if I can't be as consistent as I would like.

      Oooh I love Psychology! That's what I'm doing. The statistics part isn't a huge part of it, so you would be fine :)

    2. We will just have to encourage each other to post! In my university you have to take about 3 Statistics classes to then major in Psychology, do you not have to do that? I think I'm going to take some more classes in it though because it actually is pretty interesting.

  2. What an adorable little guy! Congrats on the brother! Best of luck with your classes. x


  3. Cute!
