On Campus Grounds…Fun, and the North Island College Student Orientation Day

Today was a fun day packed with activities… and as tired as I am right now, I enjoyed myself immensely.

The day started when I was out the door by 7:30.  I was scheduled to help out at North Island College’s annual Orientation ‘fair’ at noon, and I wanted to be there ahead of the hustle and bustle to take some picture quietly.  By the time I arrived on campus however, I was not the only one… and only had a moment to take a few pictures.  Immediately after, I got right into the swing of things, helping out with set-ups, tours, information booths and handing out flyers.  It was a gorgeous, most perfect day to do it in… and it was so neat being a part of the event, and seeing the big smiles on many of the students’ faces. 🙂  I couldn’t help but be sun-baked and cheerful!North Island College - Raven HallSeriously, what can you do but fall in love when your college campus looks like a beautiful woodland retreat? ♥  Not to mention the lovely names for the different buildings.  Raven Hall and Discovery Hall are my favourites. 🙂

Afterwards, at 1:30, I met up with my friend Ali, and we had a girly time at Winners.  Picking outfits for your girlfriend (and vice versa) is so much fun.  Plus, it’s a great way to experiment with clothes that you probably wouldn’t have given another thought or look to.  I walked away with a few goodies, and will be sharing them in another post. 🙂

Of course, we then made our way to a restaurant to recharge ourselves, and topped off our girl-time with a trip to Starbucks, and pedicures!  lol   We know how to treat ourselves… 😀

All done with fun, I came home and left just half an hour later for my 2 hour karate class.  Learning to use your body and movements to take down a man thrice your size is a pretty nice feeling of accomplishment!

I’m all ready for bed now, and can’t wait to catch up on a ton of blog posts that have ‘sprung up’ overnight –or so it seems!  In the meantime,  Bonne nuit, and pleasant dreams!

  1. School started about a week ago for me (I’m graduating this upcoming spring) and boy am I glad to be back. I completely understand your enthusiasm for orientation/school – the prospect of something to do and enjoy the beautiful view of college is certainly exciting. Hope you have a great school year!
