I'd like to say that's because life has been far too exciting to sit down and write a post, but it's more the opposite. I am busy all the time with this PhD program, but it's a pretty boring and sedentary life for me these days.
I am reading a lot. Which is cool - my book numbers are through the roof. But not any books for fun. They're all for school. My Goodreads account is starting to look a lot more academic these days. I did manage to read read one book for fun (the last Heroes of Olympus book) at Christmas, but that's about it for the past few months. I am trying to work on that - I miss my books.
I'm going to try and go back and write all the reviews I didn't get to - maybe that will get me back into blogging. Or at least be a productive waste of time unlike all my other technological outlets that distract me from my work.
In any case, life in Montreal is pretty beautiful. I may not have explored the city as much as I would have liked to over the months I've been here. But what I have seen I have loved.
But, you guys? Winter here is no!joke! We may not have a lot of snow up here yet (Juno missed us completely!) - but the temperatures are more than making up for that. We're talking nights where the "feels like" temperature is around -30F. Which is just crazy talk. Next time I move I'm going south. I need the sun back in my life.
So, here are a few pictures of life lately, and a potential-promise to be back round these parts more. I've missed you guys!
|This was after the first snowfall in Quebec.|
I was so naive about the cold back then....
|Campus under it's first real snowfall of the year.|
|It was about 9 degrees out.|
So obviously I needed a photo with the cow sculpture.
|Phoenix misses me a lot when I'm gone.|
Can you tell?
|Oh, just DESSERT PIZZA|
at my favorite chocolate place in town.
|Because I don't get enough of the MA in my daily life...|
