I'm getting more in to the daily routine of Halifax and university life now which has meant i have been a busy bee the last few weeks! The workload is heavier than in the UK but the fact that i enjoy all of my modules makes it well worth it, never before have i actually enjoyed a 10-5.30 day of lectures!

So... what have i done since i last wrote? I went on a hike and met an amazing group of people and we walked the most beautiful route round a lake that is just a bus ride out of downtown Halifax. It was such a lovely day for it too!

The 'Across the pond' trivia team are now firm fixtures at trivia night, and also firm fixtures in the bottom half of the winners list! Give it a year though and we will be pro's at the trivia lark, i can see it now, 'Across the pond. No#1'

I ventured out as well to a karaoke night, in an underground sports bar, now what is not to love, sitting in a nice environment drinking a beer and eating a bowl of fries! I even got up and sang... with a group... stood furthest away from the microphone... but it is the participation that counts, right?

Then, i did actual work on a weekend! I had to follow some maps for one of my modules and take interesting pictures to write about. I did get to see a fair amount of the city that day, going down the historical streets, up to citidel hill, then stopping to eat a beavers tail, which is a bit like a doughnut, but flat, and shaped like a beavers tail (hence the name :P) and you can have all sorts on it! I have chocolate spread and banana on mine :P We then ventured on to the ferry bus over to Dartmouth, which is not all that interesting... But i did go there again this weekend and went to the mall there, and spent lots of money in H&M and bought my first Canadian piece of clothing and i think the only thing that is preparing myself for winter.

Then lots of work happened and business try outs so my time has been taken up very much so by assignment writing and reading, as well as going out for lots of coffee and tea... i blame my neighbour for this ;) This week though it is green week at the university and there are lots of free events around campus and in the city. I am also going apple picking this weekend, so i warn anyone that is around me, you may be in abundance of shoddily baked apple pies :P
