Canadian Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. I haven’t celebrated thanksgiving since 2012, but tomorrow some of the Canadian students are going to get together for dinner and I guess my streak of being completely unthankful for my amazingly awesome life will end.

I have a lot of things to be thankful for. Ever since I left home two years ago, my life has been great.

That sounds kind of bad, doesn’t it…

But it’s true. This blog has been going well and I love my classes and I’ve got awesome friends all over the world. I’m still unsure about my future, but I’m not without options.

I’ve been really busy and today’s no exception, so I’m going to keep this short and end it here. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Calgary Stampede!

So this is long overdue, but my dad took my siblings and me to the annual rodeo in town which you probably guessed from the title, is called the Calgary Stampede. If you’ve never heard of it, it happens in my hometown and goes for ten days every July. There are rides, games, and food stands. There are rodeo competitions, there are tons of informative and interactive animals and agriculture booths, there are tons of shows and concerts, there are cultural celebrations and there is tons and tons of advertising. It’s awesome and the entire city gets decked out Old-West style and there are free pancakes and burgers around town for the entire duration of “Stampede Season”.
