Every year at the beginning of the holidays, I like to make a list. This list is comprised of a number of things, such as stuff that I want to do over the break, stuff that I see throughout the year that would be cool to have, and stuff that I want to see while I have the time off. This list is sort of a preliminary one to my New Year’s list – except its better, because it’s a HOLIDAY LIST!
So here it is: My 2013 Holiday List!
Stuff To Do…
The last time I went snowshoeing was a few years ago – and last year I bought a brand new pair of snowshoes! I definitely can’t wait to hit some hiking trails over the break.
A number of years ago, my family and a few others in my community in Markham decided to build a hockey rink at our local park, and after getting approval from the municipal government we began to do it again every year. We would be there almost every evening playing hockey.
Unfortunately, as time went on, we all found that we had less and less time each year to spend on the rink, and for a little while, there was no rink. Other rinks have popped up in surrounding communities however, and I am most certainly going to strap on the skates for some pond puck this winter.
Spend Time With Family & Loved Ones
When the stresses of school hit you from all angles, it is easy to forget to spend time and cherish your family and friends. So this break, it’ll be all about remembering the ones I love.
Review My School Stuff & Work On My Research Paper
The work never ends. Because I have a paper due next semester, not to mention all the readings, I might as well make an attempt to do some work, right? A little bit of work on it now could mean a lot less stress later!
Stuff To Get…
Portable Tea Steeper
Stuff To See…
ROM (Royal Ontario Museum)
Haven’t been here in a long time, and I have been meaning to go back!
Distillery District (Toronto)
Will be heading there next weekend with A Pal who is a former Vanier Student! Can’t Wait!
Toronto Christmas Markets
I have heard great things – after going to Europe 2 years ago, my parents still cannot stop talking about the Christmas Markets. It will be really nice to experience some of that right here at home!
St. Lawrence Market (Toronto)
Fresh, local food? What’s not to like!
SNOW (HOPEFULLY EVERYWHERE)
I’ve had enough with this freezing cold weather without a fresh blanket of the white stuff. COME ONNNNNNN WINTER!
And that’s my holiday list!
