Study

Now that it's almost time for finals, I find myself spending a lot of time in my room studying. First term classes end friday, which means final exams are right around the corner. With my terrible final schedule, I feel that I should start reading and doing homework now to avoid stressful nights before exams. Soon everyone will be able to forget about school and be able to enjoy Christmas, but until then:

Just a Taste: Amigos

A while back Dallas, JJ and I went to Amigos just off Broadway. Entering Amigos, you feel that bar atmosphere. There are pool tables, televisions, bar stools and a stage. You can check online at www.amigoscantina.com to see which bands are playing. There are always different genres of music being played. Online you can also view their menu and list of beverages. Although it seems like a bar during the day or for supper you are welcome to take the whole family for a meal. When I was younger my family had almost gone every week where we would all order chimichangas (highly recommended).

This time we ordered Nacho Grande. There is a full order and a half order, they are described as "Award winning nachos made with our own nacho chips and salsa, plus shredded chicken, ground beef, crab, tomatoes, green onions, olives, shredded cheeses & sour cream. Now those are nachos." They are definitely loaded and could be eaten as a meal. I have never eaten nachos with crab as a topping, but then again I have never eaten nachos like these.



  
Amigos was voted by Planet S for having the best staff and good service, which I can agree on. Planet S also awarded them on their nachos. If you are looking for a good homestyle mexican meal, good music or a place to get drinks, Amigos is a great choice.

Wishlist

For some reason I have been indecisive on the Adidas x Ransom "The Summit". My biggest worry at the moment is judging Adidas sizing. It is tough to say whether I am a size 8.5 or 9, but I will take the gamble with the 8.5. I haven't worn boots since the 4th grade and clearly I need something to keep my feet dry in winter. So yesterday I was offered to share an order with a friend also interested in The Summit and came to a decision that I am going to try and get them. The order has not been put in quite yet and now I am waiting to see if there is sizing available.
Winter is here!

Barnstone Tournament

Every year at the Henk Ruys soccer center, Barnstone holds a soccer tournament. There is competitive and fun leagues for men, women and coed. This year I played coed, but hopefully next year I have the chance to play mens as well. We came up short this tournament but the environment was great. There were a lot of friends, good soccer and some fun parties. If you did not make it out this year, make an effort to come out next year.

Jingle Bell Run

This year was our first Jingle Bell Run. This was the 17th successful year. Dallas, Aashna and I woke up early and ran the 5 km along the river. The weather was perfect and the turn out was great. We saw a lot of teams dressed up creatively, it's hard to think that Christmas is creeping up on us. It was a lot of fun and felt good to be a part of something like this. Hopefully we participate again next year.

Two out of three

It honestly snowed all day. Thank goodness I own the Northface Gotham, but stupid that I wore Vans. A few posts before I mentioned that I was planning on snowboarding this winter and the other day I received the boots and board. The snow scares me because it's about time where everyone begins to drive terribly, but on the other hand I will be able to ride soon. I'll show you guys a better picture when I finish the puzzle.

New Winter Plan

The snow dropped in Saskatoon early this year. I recently purchased a snowboard, so this year you catch me on that bunny hill at Table Mountain. If any readers are interested in getting some new gear, check out Outtabounds. I worked there in the summer and right now they have huge amount of boarding gear. Hopefully we can get a bit of footage of us having some fun!
