Yesterday was such a crazy day!
First off, I made a very spontaneous decision to drop a class. It was a class on Global Policies and Food Safety and it just was not my cup of tea. I don’t want to waste my time on a class I hate when I could be putting my efforts towards my other classes and volunteering.
Right after my 6 hour day of classes I picked up my friend Sydney for the 1.5 hour drive home. We were prepared with some car snacks: apples and Food Should Taste Good sweet potato chips. They taste nothing like sweet potato, but they’re super addicting!
We had some gorgeous scenery on the drive:
But not half an hour after this photo was taken, something crazy happened. We got stuck in traffic and then WE GOT REAR ENDED! We were literally at a standstill when all of a sudden this pick up truck behind us drive right into us! I was sooo shaken and didn’t know what to do. There was no way I could pull over right away because of the traffic. So instead we jotted down his license plate number and then waited for a few minutes until we could pull over, but by then we had lost track of the truck. We got out to inspect my car, but luckily there was no damage. I’m still can’t believe that happened though!
After an incident like that, there was only one thing that could make us feel better: all you can eat sushi at August 8 (website). We went to the Burlington location, but there is also an August 8 in Hamilton and in Oakville.
I’d never been here before – but I was impressed. The service was amazing and the sushi was so fresh!
Of course I had to order a wakame salad. Eating a salad of seaweed sounds gross, but if you don’t mind the texture, it tastes amazing!
We also ordered a ton of sushi to split like salmon sashimi (we both go crazy for salmon sashimi!) and a rainbow roll (California roll with salmon and tuna on the outside):
Plus salmon sushi and tuna sashimi:
But wait, there was more: salmon hand roll, salmon maki roll, spicy salmon roll, and even more salmon sashimi! Clearly we love salmon.
We were absolutely stuffed afterwards! So we crashed on the couch for the rest of the night and watched Everwood. We started watching this show 4 years ago when we were freshmen and we were obsessed! Once a week we would gather in someone’s room, order take-out, and watch this show for hours. I miss those days!
