So you decided on UVIC. Ryerson was too far and UBC is too close to Mom and Dad. You packed up your life in a pickup truck and paid a fortune to drive on that ferry to start your new life on the island.

After spending 4 years at UVIC I can say I'm stoked I made the decision to do my degree there. There is no campus more beautiful than UVIC in the Spring, (although it was best when there was still a flock of baby bunnies running towards you and your bag of mini carrots in the quad) and the quirky people that congregate at this destination school makes it all the more fun.

Let’s face it, the November weather in Toronto can put us in a dreadful slump. The Fall air is beginning to get extremely sharp, hitting you in the face when you least expect it. The pre-holiday advertisements are slightly obnoxious and is a constant reminder of how unprepared you are for the fast-approaching December.

If there is anything that we all need right now, is something new and exciting to keep us motivated this month. Forget the traditional places like spending time in a mall – because we all know you run inside the Eaton Centre to shelter yourself from the wind chill. Instead, take a different approach towards fun this month. Hit up these Toronto pop-up shops and events that will be in your neighbourhood this November to spice up your usual work week! Mark your calendars, because these places are only here for a limited time, so don’t say I didn’t warn you.
