It’s hard to believe that there’s only a few more days left in 2015. It really does feel like it flew by. I was thinking about everything that’s happened this year, so I figured I might as well put a blog post together with some of the highlights of the last 12 months.
January I had applied for school back in December. Because of Christmas I think it took longer than usual to get my application processed. Needless to say I was feeling pretty antsy in January to find out of I’d gotten in or not.
February I finally found out that I’d been accepted to Mount Royal University! Check out my post here with the exciting news. I also bought tickets to go see Canada play in the World Cup. I was super excited about it, although I ended up not being able to go because I had a bunch of dental work done the day before I had to leave. Needless to say I was pretty miserable and a road trip didn’t sound like much fun.
April I got a bit of a late start on the garden this year, but I shared how my seedlings that I started indoors were doing. It always feels so good to see something green growing, even if they were in the window and there was snow on the ground outside.
May I went to the opening show of U2’s Innocence and Experience tour in Vancouver. They put on an amazing show. Click here for my recap of the concert. I also wrote posts about what I did and where I ate while I was there. I also started my anatomy class in May. I did it online, so it was definitely more work than going to an in person class. I’m very glad I did it over the summer though because that meant I had one less class in September.
September I started school full time. I remember thinking as I was sitting in the orientation that I had finally made it. It had taken a lot of work and time to get to this point, so I was pretty excited to finally get started. It had been a long time since I was last in school, so I put together a post with my favorite back to school essentials.
October Since I have access to the gym at school as a student. I took advantage of it and tried a bunch of new to me fitness classes like Zumba and ViPR that I’d never been to before. It was a lot of fun checking out new workouts and meeting some new people.
November I turned 33 years old this month. My birthday was on a Saturday, but it wasn’t very eventful as I was in the AFLCA certification course (click here for my thoughts on the course) the entire weekend. I did however manage to squeeze in dinner with the family. My dad made my absolute favorite meatballs and spaghetti for me.
December This month was all about finals. I spent hours and hours studying for my three finals. As stressful as it was though, I ended up doing pretty well. I’m happy with all marks, so I’d say that the fall semester was a success. As much as I enjoyed my classes though, I’ve been enjoying the Christmas break. I’m excited about my classes that start in January. I feel like I’ll be able to jump back into school enthusiastically after having a bit of a break.
Happy new year!
