Escape

When you move off to university, you tend to forget that other worlds exist outside of campus. Sometimes you don't even realize it until you leave! A great way to de-stress and escape is to get off campus! Yes, there is such thing as, "the outside world". I am fortunate enough to have my brother live in the same city as I do, so I can go to his house for supper and drinks to get away. Meal hall is great and all...(not) but there isn't much that compares to a home cooked meal. (I had tacos at my bros, it was delicious :))

 You tend to forget that things like pets exist too. They are always good company. (Especially this guy below)


It can be a bit much for some individuals to be around the same people all of the time, especially if you live in res. Something as small as taking a walk downtown and eating out for supper is enough to refresh your brain.


What I love about living in such an old city is the downtown. There are so many old historical government buildings, as well as old bridges and beautiful parks. It's perfect for escaping from the concrete and glass buildings on campus.

Clay Café

Clay Café is a little shop downtown Fredericton where you can paint different pottery pieces. It is so awesome and so much fun! You can paint things from little pumpkin faces to huge bowls and frames.  It's a great place to go with your friends or on a first date ;) (for all you guys out there who want to pretend you're creative).
There are shops like this all around the globe, they most likely are named something different mind you. Keep your eye out for them though, because they are tons of fun!

Now, the only downside is that it can be somewhat pricey. What I suggest is to just go for a fun treat! Don't think that you have to go every time you go out with your friends, or go on a date with someone because it will add up over time. When you want to treat yourself however, it is perfect because it's so much fun to do, not to mention it is quite relaxing.

:)

These are some of my pictures from the Clay Café

Mr. Bee's Pick of the Week

Christmas Lights!

Contrary to the fact that they have "Christmas" in their name, Christmas Lights are not only for the time of gift giving and turkey eating. These twinkling lights can be used all year round in places like your bedroom or dorm room! They add an awesome fairy-like essence to you room and can make it feel more homey. This is perfect for all you so called "non-creative" people because it adds an artistic element to your sweet pad without you having to do much to any work! 

Here are a few examples from my room
 




Where might you find these majestic items? Well, keeping along with the cheapness theme of this blog, I have purchased mine from my local Dollarstore. Other places where you might find them is a Walmart, Hardware Store or other department stores. Christmas lights are not generally very expensive, so no matter where you look for them, they probably won't break your bank completely in half.  

Back to School!

It's that time of year where our lives consist of book bags, essays and numbers. But hey! Fear not, because not only is school back, but I am too! I will be regularly posting tips, ideas and just random thoughts. The next few posts are going to be solely focused on all things back to school, SO... if you're ever bored or in need of some inspiration, this is the place to be! So check up, check in and check it out!
