Wow! First post of 2015!
It’s been a while since I’ve written but with the long travels and cough that I’ve been dealing with I didn’t have a ton of time to do much else. In summary, my last week has been a little all over the place. I started the year off at track training camp in Florida which was a lot of fun but the first half of which I had to adjust to the extreme humidity and the second half I was trying to down cough syrup to subside any symptoms to make it through a workout. During our down time however we had some fun times on the beach and chilling track-side that made the whole things worthwhile. All in all, I think we all had a great few workouts and a wonderful time in sunny Florida!
Although the true beginning of the year didn’t start off the right foot necessarily, I have so many hopes and dreams for the coming year in terms of school, athletics, and of course my beloved blog.
For those who might have started reading more recently, I started this blog as a way to show my friends and family the things I was up to in Italy but once I returned I realized how much I loved writing and therefore continued to do so. As I made my blog work within the confines of my busy school and training schedules, I focused mainly on food; both recipes and reviews. However, in the weeks leading up to the holidays I realized that I’m not really the type to have only one interest. From a very young age I’ve always loved filling my time with as many things as time would permit.
A few weeks before I returned home, a professor of mine pointed out that I really do, do a ton of different things. Having heard it from someone else and then slowly processing that information, I realized that focusing my interests right now wasn’t something to do at the moment. So for the New Year and my ever-changing blogging experiences, I am happy to say that I’ll be writing more and more about a variety of things that I love to see and do.
One of the things I’m particularly excited about is further exploring the big city. I currently go to school in Toronto which offers so many different ways to get involved and see what’s happening in the city. I’m also from Montreal and frequent Mont-Tremblant on a regular basis therefore some of my writing will come from there as well. From museum exhibitions to my year-long wait for the two weeks of Winterlicious, I can’t wait to do and write about my experiences in hopes to inspire others to get to know their cities as well.
