I’ve Been Neglectful…

…of this blog.

It’s been a crazy week. Work, class, homework, and tryouts…yes tryouts. Not the regular sports kind, but the nerdy mathletes, debate team sort…kind of.

My school hosts a Business Case Competition every year in November. Teams from each campus (theres quite a few) compete.

Whats a Business Case Competition? Well, every team is put into a seperate classroom, and the door is locked. We aren’t allowed to take anything in with us, no cell phones, no books, nothing. We are however provided with one computer, sans internet access. Each team is given 2.5 hours to read a case study, and put together a slideshow to present to the judges. The top two teams get to travel to Qatar to participate in an international competition, and the third place team gets to travel to Montreal to participate in the Vanier BusinessĀ  Case Competition.

I’ve also had a Professional Selling case study assignment due yesterday, and a Statistics assignment due today.

Needless to say I’ve been busy.


I am looking forward to relaxing this weekend, and perhaps trying out some of the DIY crafts I found on Pinterest.

Maybe this one…



My Favorite…

I hate everything about coffee…the way it smells, the way it tastes….

So, when I lived in Alberta, and my friends wanted to go for “coffee” I either had a Caramel Macchiato at Starbucks (love!) or a French Vanilla Cappucino at Tim Horton’s.

Since I’ve moved back across the country, to a town with no Starbucks (I know, its unthinkable) and Tim Horton’s isn’t my favorite (how un-Canadian of me), I have been left to find alternate sources of caffinated goodness. There is a nice local place here called Brewed (I’ll post about it sometime soon), but on my student budget I cant always go out for “coffee.” So, I make my own at home.

I’ve always enjoyed hot chocolate, but I don’t want it every day. So, on my last trip to Walmart (the at leasĀ $100 store) I decided to look for something to switch it up. I found my new favorite (at home) hot bevarage: Hills & Bros French Vanilla Cappuccino. Yum!
