What’s the Buzz, Tell Me What’s a Happening

Sorry that I haven’t been very present lately in either posting or commenting. I like to say that I’ve been off doing wondrous things, but that’s not quite the case as I haven’t been feeling terribly inspired or great lately. I don’t want to write too much, in fear that I will sound really whiny and depressed.  So, instead, I’ll tell you the more exciting things that I’ve  been up to lately.

Today was the start of block week, which is a week long course before actual courses start. It’s interesting because on of  my school friends who didn’t go on internship is teaching it. He’s actually a really good teacher, especially for someone who hasn’t really taught before, so I’m quite impressed.

Yesterday was a baby shower for the 4th baby related person I know – it was a surprise Noah’s ark themed shower and the mommy-to-be was definitely surprised!

Saturday, I went out for dinner for my best friend Heather’s birthday and then we went out clubbing afterwards. There were quite a few stagettes and quite a few brides looked like they brought their mothers/aunts/MILs.  I felt sorry for one of the brides-to-be because she didn’t look like she was having much fun – her mother/aunt/MIL spent the entire evening in the corner not looking terribly impressed.  I promised Heather that I wouldn’t invite her mom to go out clubbing when her bachelorette rolls around. What do you think about inviting mums to bachelorettes?

I made borscht for the first time with the beets that I got from the farmer’s market and it was delicious. Can you believe I’ve never had it before? I forgot to take any pictures – sorry – but rest assured that it was very red.

One thing I am terribly excited for is that Mr. Bean and I leave for Vancouver Island on Wednesday to go hang out with my family and for my cousin’s wedding. I really wish it were tomorrow evening right now!

What is the most exciting thing that you’ve done in the last week?
