I’m always looking for recipes that are quick, easy, and delicious. However, everything is very restricted because I really don’t like bussing to get groceries and therefore my ingredients are also very limited! Also, shopping for myself only is difficult because you have to make sure you’ll finish it all before it expires…
My diet is very boring and will probably get unhealthy at a certain point.
- Instant Oatmeal for breakfast, sometimes an egg and sausage omelette
- Sensitive stomach in the morning, so breakfast is also very restricted
- Pasta for lunch/dinner
- Chicken/Beef with whatever I have in the fridge
It’s so difficult to think of what I should make for myself because it all takes planning too (defrosting the meat, making sure you have all the incredients, etc.).
90% of the time, I have no idea what I’m doing and just mixing everything together…
Hopefully my cooking skills will improve very soon…

When people ask me “What are your plans for the summer?“, I give them the wonderful answer of “Studying.“. That’s right, I’m back on study term. I moved in on Saturday and immediately got home sick. Starting to adjust to it a little bit more now…
Trying my personal best not to fall behind and always be ahead of schedule but we all know that a goal like that is extremely difficult…
But another goal of mine will be to be more healthy and feel good. My friend goes by “You look good, you fell good, so you perform better”. I went to the gym once this week… but hope there’s more trips to the gym very soon. The week passed by slowly but at a steady pace (a little bit slow, though).
It’s a rainy day but I’ll be spending this Friday night working ahead so my next weekend (long weekend) will be as free as possible. I’m going to miss Mother’s Day with the family this weekend :(

Yesterday (technically 2 days ago because I’m writing this after 11:59pm on the Saturday) was my last day at my co-op position this term. It’s been a great experience and I will miss work very much (can’t believe I just said that, but it sure beats studying)!
Along with the other co-op in the web team, we brought in cupcakes to work. Just a simple way of saying “thank you”.
I tried one for myself, the strawberry topping on vanilla. IT’S WAS DELICIOUS!! You can really taste the strawberry. Chocolate cupcakes can sometimes be too sweet but I thought the strawberry and vanilla one was perfect!
It’s sad to leave because it wasn’t until the past few weeks that I noticed how awesome it was working there. I tell my coworkers that they’re awesome, although it sounds like I’m sucking up to them for that “outstanding” evaluation, it’s true! I’ve never met a group of people with such great personalities. They make jokes, they’re chill, they speak to each other like friends, etc… it just makes it a stress-free work environment for sure.
Also, last week our company did a 24 hour hackathon. The first time it was held, I was still new to the company so I didn’t really know what I was doing. This time, along with other co-ops around the company, we came up with some silly ideas. We hoped for one award, but we ended up winning three! I also joined another team that needed a designer for their interface. That team won an award as well. Got a gift card to Wal-Mart so I guess I’ll either be spending it on necessities this week or spending it on groceries! Bottom line, I couldn’t ask for a better way to end off my time at the company.
Aside from leaving co-op, I’ve also been trying to catch up on a lot of work recently…
- Paperwork for school (a report to be specific)
- Paying tuition, just planning ahead for the next term
- Accepting a side project
- Cleaning up my portfolio and resume
This week is going to be crazy rather than relaxing. As much as I want to enjoy my time here in Toronto before I move back next week… I know I have to finish up all these tasks very soon :(
While everyone else is finishing up their school term and exams, I’ll be heading back to school!
