Outside the Psychology Department, with what I believe, are called Crab Apple trees...
The Autumn semester is officially over. I finished my exams today, and guess what's going on to 'help' me celebrate?
Outside my bedroom window...
A SNOW STORM...
Oh well, it's just snow! Weather forecast estimates we'll have 25-30 cm of snow tomorrow, but oh well, just another day in Canadian winter...It's Canada, of course it's cold!!!
I wanted to show you the scene on the bridge (the one that connects the East and West Banks of the river on campus), but I didn't have my camera with me. Holly smoke, the wind was howling and the snow was blowing ferociously...There was no path on the bridge anymore!
I'm beginning to enjoy it actually...Lovely to see icicles hanging outside the bedroom window; I'm so tempted to climb out, coat it with juice, and suck it like a popsicle!
On a lighter note, I have enjoyed my term here. It was hard work...I usually only finished work every night at, the earliest, 2 am, and at times, was on the verge of just giving up and not bother, but hey, it's been worthwhile!
I'm very glad I'm here, because the educational experience has been great. I enjoy the fact that discussions, however controversial, are always allowed and respected. People don't always agree with you, but they allow you to talk. And what's more, I was pretty surprised at how culturally sensitive people are, and they always look for people from other cultures to share their take on a particular topic (Hey, my Psychology textbook 'gives credit' that the word 'amok' is a Malaysian term! They actually specifically said Malaysian...).
I have made many friends here, from all walks of life. Some are people just like me, struggling through university, some happen to be professors of mine, and others are people whom I’ve met along the way.
But now, TO TORONTO for a HOLIDAY! There is talk that the roads might close, but oh well, I'll leave a day later then...No worries!
After browsing over 300 research papers, reading over 80 of them (ranging anywhere from 7-30 pages), writing 10 annotated bibliographies, 3 thought/critique papers, 2 abstracts, 1000-word essays, a seminar presentation, 2 lab reports, 16 lab papers, carrying out 2 field work studies, and surviving 5 interviews+training-sessions for my volunteer work placements, I am looking forward to a much needed-break.
If anyone thought studying Psychology was chicken’s feet, come to me, and we will have a discussion...
