How has it been almost two weeks since the last time I posted? I guess school has been busier than I thought it would be. Anyways, now that I have two weeks of classes under my belt, I’m hoping to find more time to blog.

Garden Mount Royal University September 22 2015

First off, a quick update about school….. I love it! My classes are all pretty interesting. All my profs seem pretty nice and friendly. Although I’ve been to campus a few times before classes classes started, I’ve realized how pretty the outdoor spaces are now that I’ve been there for a few weeks. The above photo is the view from the library. There are lots of little gardens like that hidden away between the different buildings.

I think the coolest thing we’ve talked about so far is what health actually means. Before I thought it meant the absence of disease. Basically if you’re not injured or have a chronic disease, you’re healthy. But I’m coming to understand that health has so many more dimensions than that. Are you eating healthy? Getting enough sleep? Have a supportive social network? Being active? There’s so many more dimensions that make up health than I realized before.

Most of the classes will be with all the same people, so I’m slowly but surely getting to know everyone and at some point I’ll even remember their names. It’s a great group of people from all kinds of backgrounds. There have already been a few interesting discussions in class, and I’m sure there will be many more.

I guess it’s been awhile since I was last in school, because I’d forgotten how much work it is. There’s always a chapter that needs to be read, research to be done, or notes to do. This is the third week of classes and I already have two papers due in a few days.

In addition to classes I’ve also managed to get myself a job on campus. I work with a great group of people so I’m sure it’ll be a fun year working together. I’ve also gotten involved with the campus newspaper. I’ve written one article (I can’t wait to see it printed in the paper!) and I’m currently in the middle of writing another one.

Leave a comment below with something new that’s going on in your life.

    I find it interesting to think of all the different aspects of health too. It definitely means a lot more than most people think.
