Quarterly Review: Q1 2015

Spring and all that comes with it: regeneration and rebirth.

Spring Robin

Over the weekend, I saw my first spring robin. I don’t know where or when I started keeping track of first robin sightings as my official start to spring… I always have a mini celebration/freak out when I see the first one, because it signals that life is slowly starting to creep back in.

Q1 has been a whirlwind in the all best ways. You know that feeling when you start a new journal? The endless possibilities of a blank page? It feels a little like that.

Looking ahead in my calendar, I can already see summer weekends are starting to fill up and everyone is making plans for the warm weather. I’m hoping all this sunshine and Vitamin D boosts will help me finally kick this wretched, lingering cold that I’ve been fighting since Family Day. It’s hard to run 100 miles with a cold! Hard, but not impossible.

I’m looking forward to a new Oana Befort desktop calendar, a new trench coat, and a new Les Mills release. And, I’m especially excited about all the good books I have lined up to read.

Spring has sprung!

Quarterly Review

So far, so good.

It’s strange to think that I have just one month of school left. It’s scary to think that I’ve been out of university for two years! That is frightening. Reminds me of the good old days blogging for Maclean’s. I think I summed up how I’m feeling right now here. One month of school, four weeks, four exams and that’s all folks. It is overwhelming and I sympathize with my fellow graduating students.

The first quarter of 2012 has been pretty great so far.

Re: New Years resolutions- I’m trying to take lots of photos, waiting with my fingers crossed for the Lollapalooza lineup, and happily managing the stress of my final semester through painting my nails, writing exercises, transcendental meditation and working out on a regular basis.

Here are a couple of things that have helped to make these last few weeks a bit brighter:
