yes, that's right - i am a starbucks pumpkin spice latte connoisseur. if i could name my favourite food or beverage product i've ever had ever, it would be the starbucks pumpkin spice latte. i can't explain it - that delicious fake pumpkin flavour mixed with espresso and steamed milk? yum yum YUM!
ok, i know that makes me sound ridiculous, but i suppose if you have never met me then you don't know that, in fact, i am quite ridiculous.
i had my first english PSL today. it was pretty delicious, though perhaps had less pumpkin syrup than i've found US starbuckses like to pump into theirs. that being said, i have had less syrupy ones in the US, it really does depend on the barista. thank god my tutor paid for it (tutor=personal advisor) as it was about $4.70 for a tall... lolz its about the same price at many US places, such as the JFK airport. i guess i just justified buying more myself. damnit!
i met with my tutor today to go over sciencey things, such as my research project and the various labs i could work in (which we discussed over our starbucks). very helpful! and she was very nice, also a super huge plus! i got a lab tour, as well - and i am excited to say that they have a tech who cleans and autoclaves ALL of the jars! hooray! i am going to set up appointments with others to discuss their labs. can't wait til wednesday when i get to meet more of my classmates as i am the only entering full time MSc student (last year they had 10!) so i've really got quite the pick of projects. winning? we shall see.
i also bought a university sweatshirt - going to any university anywhere is not complete without appropriate obnoxious attire. mine is a bright blue.
yeah, that's pretty much my exciting day. at the very least, way more exciting than yesterday.
