Day 25: What You Did Today

I didn’t get up to anything too exciting today, as it is a workday for me. But that’s what it’s like in the life of a research assistant.

I slept in a little this morning since I didn’t have any meetings, and then I ate breakfast and went through my emails and notifications. After that, I started to get some work done. I’m currently reading a book on Canadian fisheries policy and taking notes on certain things that are useful for the project I’m working on.

I worked most of the day, with a break for coffee and lunch of course. I decided to work on my blog later in the afternoon, mostly doing some editing and behind the scenes work. I also tend to write some 30 Day Challenge posts in advance, since I can’t always write a post the day it goes up. Luckily, I got to edit my blog in my reading nook, which is one of my favourite places to work.

Last but not least, I’m just about to cook dinner, which involves roasting a bunch of veggies and making some meatballs. After that, I plan to relax the rest of the night, which might mean reading a bit or putting on a movie.

Things You’re Excited About

I’m actually really excited for this year, and semester, of university.

First, I’m excited to be learning a lot about the subjects I’m planning on making my major. I’m loving being able to take international politics courses, and history courses.

I’m really looking forward to one of my papers, strangely enough. I get to analyze Maritime newspapers from the 1850s (ish), which is awesome. This paper might just convert me to liking Canadian history for once…

I’m excited for my other two courses, Spanish and Ethics, since I’ve found a real love for those two subjects over the last year. Besides, now I know more than just “¿Dónde está el baño?”

What are you guys excited about this fall? University wise or not, leave it down below!
