Before I start talking about today, I want to send a huge SHOUT OUT to everyone at Lakehead campus for making my birthday (yesterday) the best it could possibly be away from home. The cake was great and the company was even better! It was for sure one to remember.
Now about today... Coming all the way from the chilly weather of Port Hope Simpson, Labrador, today has got to be one of my favourite days here in Thunder Bay so far! This is because today's temperature is the coolest we've had since I arrived, giving me a little break from the suffering heat I am so not used to! (It is currently 17 degrees.)
Not only is the temperature on my side today, but we had extra free time in which we got to enjoy the different activities, dancing and music of Lakehead University Student Union Day! We tie-dyed shirts, chalk-drew on the cement and even got a chance to take pictures with the mascot!
I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am for all the amazing friends I have already made and all the opportunities SHAD Lakehead has in store for me!
So fellow SHADs, my advice to you is this... Don't let the fear of failure keep you from trying something new. Continue to seek what sets your soul on fire. Let your mind wander to new heights. Smile. Laugh. And most importantly, don't be afraid to be a "little" competitive for that SHAD Cup!
