MY LIFE | ConGRADulations

Time sure does fly by.

I remember the days leading up to my big move to Toronto—all the high school goodbyes and the excitement of finally getting out of there (Surrey, no hard feelings). Now, four years later, I officially have a Bachelor of Journalism.

It's been a crazy ride. I've met the most talented people, the most genuine people and the most encouraging people throughout my time at Ryerson. Earlier this month, I had my convocation and it definitely felt strange—welcome to the real world. Me, a university grad. Cool, eh?

My parents came from Vancity to spend the day with me in all my gowning glory. I seriously would not be where I am today if it weren't for the support of my family.

And of course my wonderful friends :)

My parents and I went out for dinner at a restaurant that I've never been to and it is literally two minutes from my campus. I've probably walked by it a million times, but little did I know, that it's such a hidden gem: Barberian's Steakhouse. They have a massive wine cellar that we got a tour of before our meal. It was seriously amazing. They hold private events there and house 20,000 bottles of wine....and that's just their red wines apparently (the whites are in another cellar across the street). So I was definitely impressed.  


To top it off, Barberian's even surprised me with a ConGRADulations dessert, which was SO delicious.

After dinner, I went out to celebrate with my fellow j-school grads at the Thompson Hotel's 1812 lounge

Thanks for an amazing four years, Ryerson! It's been real.
