Well it’s been awhile! Toronto had a major ice storm come through and create havoc for thousands of people across the region. Lost power for two days! I did get a bit lazy though when the power did end up coming back haha. I was fortunate though, there are some people that I know of that have lost power for longer and still don’t have it back. It’s a pretty rough time to have something like that happen, not everyone was fortunate to have a Christmas dinner and it’s really cold these days. The house at it’s lowest went to 10 degrees Celsius. Luckily I could crash at a family friend’s house who still had electricity. Luckily, being around other helped to keep my mood up in some ways. Although it did wreak havoc, it did look very pretty with all the trees being iced over. Many trees were severely damaged though, thus branches snapped off and trees wilted and hit power lines across the city. I think over 250,000 households at one point were without power. Hopefully people will get power back soon, it’s extremely cold even inside.
My mood has been okay the past few days. I felt a little depressed a few nights ago, the thoughts that tend to cycle in my head revolve around the comments that person made to me. It’s kind of like a vicious cycle. Other than that I did manage to get a tiny bit of studying done (when there was light). Also had a chance to catch up with an old friend over sushi and coffee which was nice. Plus we went to get my nails done 🙂 Other than that it’s been pretty uneventful the past few days, with much of the power being out. It does appear that my medication is working better now that it has been increased, my score went a lot down. I still have a ways to go, but things are looking better which is a good thing I guess. Plus, I was fortunate to not have any side effects on the medication such as nausea. Although my sleep schedule is still a bit wonky so i’m still quite tired a lot of the time, even if I try to aim for 8-10 hours a night. Usually i’ll only end up getting 6-7, which isn’t bad but it’s still not great.
Hopefully 2014 will be a better year~ Looking forward to seeing what it has to offer me.
I won’t be able to update much for the next 10 days, off to Costa Rica to help out with a medical volunteer trip 🙂 Looking forward to the sun and warmth, compared to the dreary snow and cold weather we currently have here.
Merry Christmas to those that celebrate and Happy (early) New Years!
