Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
I don’t know about you, but I ate far too much this weekend. There were so many festivities happening on campus, ranging from Paleo roasts to vegetarian potluck dinners. Mine was somewhere in between. I invited some close friends and family to share a beautiful meal, enjoy excellent company, and to appreciate the clear night sky painted with stars. The long weekend enabled everyone to relax, reflect on what they are thankful for, and even drive home to see family, distance permitting.
So rarely does Squamish stay so beautiful and sunny this far into autumn. I’m sure not complaining though! The longer the sun shines the happier and more energetic everyone will be. Everyone is nearly midway through block and starting to feel the intense workload of the block plan. It’s interesting how students start to live and breathe their courses once they’ve been in them long enough. I am currently taking Evolutionary Psychology where all human behaviour boils down to reproduction, mating strategies, avoiding predation, and food gathering. Without being aware of my thought processes I’ve been analysing everyone around me! In fact, my homework for this weekend was to observe mating strategies and analyse what evolutionary basis these strategies had.
Needless to say, I love my block (who wouldn’t enjoy reducing humans to a primal level, sex being the cause for most behaviour). The sun is shining, birds are chirping and class is beckoning!
Until next time folks!
