Happy Friday! Is it just me or has this week flown by for anyone else too?
This was the last week of classes. This semester has gone by so fast, but at the same time I feel like I’ve learned so much. Both of my classes were super applicable to personal training (exercise physiology and bio mechanics), so it was kind of cool to be able to apply concepts in class to clients at my internship site right away.
Speaking of my internship, I completed my last hour on Wednesday night. I’ve submitted my hours and I’m now officially done! I’ve learned a ton being in a gym setting and getting to see how other trainers work with clients, as well as getting some hands on experience myself. While you can learn a lot from textbooks and profs in class, there’s some things that I think you can only really understand from actually doing it.
Now that my classes are over and my internship is done, I’m in hardcore study mode for my finals next week. I’m very grateful that my exercise physiology final is only going to be on content that we’ve covered since the midterm. That makes studying a bit more manageable.
The weather here in Calgary has been pretty great lately with lots of sunshine and enough heat to be warm but not too hot. Needless to say that I’m itching for school to be over. Spending time inside studying at my desk is tough sometimes when I’d much rather be enjoying the outdoors or on a hike in the mountains. Less than a week to go though!
I also registered for classes for the fall this week. Mondays and Wednesdays are going to be super busy as I have 4 classes those days. I only have 1 class Tuesdays and Thursday though, and no classes on Fridays, which is awesome.
Enough about school, on to other things!
Wednesday morning I took my dad out for a belated Father’s Day breakfast. I took him to Gruman’s (it’s a deli/restaurant that specializes in smoked meat, which he loves). We timed our arrival to get there between the breakfast and lunch rushes, which was perfect as it wasn’t too busy. Afterwards we walked around downtown to a few other places that likes (a Belgian pastry shop, Village Ice Cream, Phil and Sebastian Coffee, and Sidewalk Citizen Bakery).
My trip to Vancouver to see Adele is now less than a month away! I still can’t believe that it’s so close now. I bought the Adele ticket back in December and it felt like it would be forever til the concert actually happened. Over the last few weeks I’ve been nailing down some of the things I want to do while I’m there. I’ve booked a day trip to Victoria with Landsea Tours. While I’ve been to Vancouver a few times now, I have yet to check out Victoria. I’m pretty excited that I’ll get there this trip. I’ve also booked a walking tour called Lost Souls of Gastown that sounds like it’ll be fun.
And because there’s so many pretty things blooming in the garden right now, I’ll leave you with a few photos.
