So, the time has finally come I am currently in Cambridge, Canada with my best friend, ~powupine
I took an 10 hour bus ride from New York City. My bus was actually delayed for an hour. I was supposed to leave at 7:30 but we left at around 8:30. The bus ride was really long, not just for the distance but because I didn't get that much sleep on the bus. I'm glad that I got lucky with traveling again and didn't have to deal with sitting next to annoying or sketchy people like most of my friends tell me that they have to. We had two 15 minute rest stops. I used the first to get candy and then use the bathroom. After that, I was dying for real food. So when we got to the second, I got a breakfast sandwich from Dunkin' Donuts! So good... anyway, so we finally reached the border and then 2 more hours in we were in Toronto where I met Claire.
So far, we went to a farmer's market to get breakfast. We had apple fritters. I didn't know what they were at first but after having them, they were really good. Then after that, we were looking around. I found some awesome band-t shirts at this shop but they were too big D: oh well... then Claire showed me around her campus. It's pretty big. I could imagine get lost there. Then she took me to her architecture work shop. It was really cool seeing the students' work and her own work. They had some pretty cool stuff. There was this one model of a cathedral that just blew my mind. I'd post the pic but I don't want to post of pic of someone else's work. Just believe me when I said that it was mind blowing, lol. So now I am at her off-campus residence. It's so nice! Everyone has their own room so they're not on top of each other like me and my roommates are. And it's an actual house so they have washing machines, a living room, tv and a deck with a grill.
Saturday night, we got back from her showing me around her neighborhood. We got these things called perogies, I think? I'm probably spelling that wrong or using the wrong name but they're like dumplings filled with cheese and potatoes at the farmers' market. When we got back to her place, I was dead tired. Well, we both kind of were so we decided to take a nap. When she woke me up, I really didn't want to get up because I was still exhausted from the bus ride. So after like idk how much time, I got up and we at the perogy things which were soo good!!! Then we tried to watch The Hang Over II. I fell asleep in the first five minutes of the movie -_- and then we decided that I should just go to bed.
Woke up at 8 the next morning, did my lecture hw, we ate breakfast and then we decided to go to Japanese restaurant for lunch. The food there was really good and we spoke about a lot of random stuff as usual. Then we went back to her place and chilled for a bit and talked and stuff. I did my topics homework for tomorrow. When I was finished with that, we decided to walk to this Indian restaurant for dinner and we brought it back home. The food was really good. I, honestly, was afraid that I wasn't going to like it. I'm glad that I did, though Then after that, we finally watched The Hangover II to entirety and it was so funny!!! xD we laughed so much. Then after the movie, we watched funny vids on youtube all night until like 1 or 2 in the morning which was also super fun. It was a great way to end the night before I had to come back to NYC
So then the next morning, I finished packing my stuff, we had pancakes for breakfast and then we went on our way to Toronto. She dropped me off and then I found my bus and boarded. I almost cried when I got on the bus. I miss her a ton already.
So I am back in NYC now. I missed my crazy suite-mates, I must say. Gonna crash soon before I die of exhaustion. This has been one awesome weekend
Thanks for reading!
