Since I finished school so early and my job starts late into the term, I have an entire month off. During this time, I feel that it is important to ensure that I am up and out of the house and being productive each day. When asked to watch a friend’s dog Monday through Friday – I jumped at the opportunity to have a responsibility that would take me out of the house each day. This is that friend’s cat.

I left my apartment for two weeks. The flowers I had been given were persisting – holding their petals – until I attempted to move the vase to give the flowers more water. By time I had got the vase to the kitchen, most of the petals had already fallen, however, here are the ones that fell once I placed the vase down on the counter.

Before one of my exams, a friend of mine purchased a sandwich from an on campus eatery. In addition to the plastic lined paper bag, the sandwich was wrapped in a plastic wrap. Very disappointing, I hope this double-plastic-wrap isn’t a regular occurrence and I will be looking out for it if I ever choose to purchase food on campus.

A natural area in Pickering is undergoing a renovation. A couple hundred trees at the entrance to a 1km hiking loop have been removed – and evidently been made into woodchips. I look forward to the outcome of this project. If there had been notice of this demolition – I would have taken a true before image – however, there was no proper notice.

on a quick hike with my dad, I came across this surprisingly well-built structure – compared to the multiple other half-built structures.

last but not least, my boyfriend made a very impulse decision to come to Pickering to spend the weekend with me before starting classes. I took him to the Pickering Waterfront where we found a very climbable tree.

Thank you April for the adventures and blessing you brought me. Here’s to hoping May 2018 is just as kind! I fly out to Nemaska, Quebec on May 14th – here’s to preparing for the new adventure ahead!

What did April 2018 bring into your life?
