it was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

If you know me, you know that I try to stay positive as much as possible. I believe in trying to give off good energy, but, I have to be honest - today was terrible. It seemed to be one of those days where absolutely nothing goes my way. From making dumb mistakes at work, to pouring scalding boiling water on my leg (now blistered and horrible), everything seemed to just go wrong.
Thankfully, I'm going to visit my best friend tomorrow! She lives in New York and I can't wait to see her! We met while studying in Greece and Italy during a few summers ago (I spent two high school summers taking classes in Europe) and became kindred spirits immediately. I still haven't packed... and most likely am going to leave it until tomorrow morning before I go (at 7 am!!!)
Just when I thought there was no way my day could get better, I checked my email to find a letter from the University of Toronto telling me I'd been admitted to transfer there!! I love my current university so much and all my friends there, but my life really is in Toronto, and it is very difficult for me to be living away and travelling home on weekends for various social commitments. Next year I'll be living and learning downtown, and I can't wait for this next chapter in my life. I couldn't help but take some pictures by one of the U of T campuses on my way home after dinner.
Maybe a wee bit too much wine at supper? I wore a Vero Moda cape, and a Matthew Williamson for H&M vest that I picked up yesterday!

  12. Oh my gosh, congrats on University of Toronto, that's so exciting! One of my best friends went there, and he loved it! I was a transfer student too, and transferring was the best decision I ever made... but now I'm graduating next week, ahhh too soon! But anyhow, your day can't have been so bad if you found out you got into the school of your dreams! Keep your chin up, lovely!

  14. Oh no, hope things pick up soon (I'm sure they will as you're visiting your best friend in NY!)
    I once had a former boss pour scalding water over my hand and not apologize. It hurt. I hope your leg gets better soon!!

  94. NO WAY YOU FOUND THAT AT H&M. I'd been to like, 5 already and all the MW stuff sucked! a bunch of prints that screamed bathing suit coverups. ugh.

    what uni do you go to now? UofT is the ultimate torontonian/canadian university, i'd say! i love the campus.. spread out all over downtown. if i didn't get accepted to my program at Ryerson, i probably would've chosen UofT. congrats!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Again a great outfit!
    I like your blog a lot.
