day 1288 – cake pop

i’ve never even heard of cake pop, but i learned it’s starbucks’ version of timbit on a stick. i was contemplating so hard before i took a bite. it was too sweet and not worth the diabetes. the expected snowstorm caused my campus to close and my class to be cancelled tonight. getting home before 8pm was a welcomed sight because i really needed the time to catch up on many of my to do list items and also wind down for the night

day 1255 – milder weather

reminiscing the summer temperatures because vancity’s winter has been far from mild. i’ve had enough of this snow, extremely chilly days and even earthquakes today. i walk out in the morning to be met by negative eight degrees which is unheard of in vancouver. the icy roads have been terrible; i witnessed accidents and had a few incidents where my car was sliding helplessly. my shadow is just hibernating and waiting for the snow to disappear

on cypress mountain doing what i ought to be doing in the winter season. this season, i changed it up and took up snowboarding as part of my 2016 to do list. it’s something i really wanted to add to my repertoire long ago, but was delayed due to commitments and parents restrictions. i didn’t learn with the best conditions, in fact, in one of the worst where the snowstorm was so strong it was blowing me uphill. some said that i was crazy for doing so in such conditions, but i wasn’t going to be picky and only saw it was a challenge. if i could pick it up in this condition, any normal condition would be a walk in the park. definitely want to hit the slopes again before vancouver winter season is all said and done
