Hello all!

With the beginning of this semester’s deadlines looming overhead in my near future, I think perhaps I will use this post to reflect on exactly where my oases are. Up here in Guelph, I would have to say my little oasis can be found in my house off campus, among my housemates chatting, while perched upon a chair—and perhaps (actually, definitely) holding a cup of delicious hot chocolate. Of course, my larger oasis would be my family—and returning home during reading week is something I am already looking forward to. I can just imagine it: at home, reading a book, a cat loudly purring and sprawled across my lap (and in the way of my page of course), as I wait for a home cooked meal. I mean, there will of course be the whole doing work to stay on top of things, but I like to place that thought in a little box for now, hidden beneath more pleasant images; for example, the freedom from having to venture outside into the blizzard weather that is Guelph to go to class, and perhaps (actually, definitely) having longer sleep-ins. Suffice to say, I am excited for reading week.

Finally, if there is anyone reading this that is feeling stressed about something and needs a little oasis, the (relatively) new mental wellness website put up by the Wellness Center is a great resource, so check it out!


Over and out,
