Soft Peaks – Organic Milk Soft Serve!

Late entry for a visit to Soft Peaks during their first week of opening.
Soft Peaks is a soft serve ice cream parlour made with organic milk with a twist on the traditional toppings. When I went it hadn’t even been open for a week so the line up was out the door but the line up moved steadily.

The ice cream is quite different from your regular soft serve. It was definitely less sweet; it was smooth, thick and creamy with a rich, milky taste.

Went with  a few friends so we each got different toppings and just stood in a circle outside afterwards, alternating the ice creams so everyone could try all the flavours. My favorites would be the Sunrise in California, Mud Slide, and Honeycomb Peak.

Soft Peaks is located in Gastown which is a bit out of the way for me with difficult parking. But if I were ever in the area, I would definitely drop by to get my soft serve fix.

One more month to go!

It’s been a while since my last entry about school…
There’s less than a month left until summer vacation! Man, do I need a break!
Tickets and accommodations have been booked for my trip in May. I’ll be going to Hawaii!! I’ve never been so I am super stoked. I have a month to get in shape so I’ve been trying to eat healthier and change my eating habits. Perhaps more on that in a later entry… XD;

Going into the program, everyone tells you that the first 6/7 weeks are the toughest and most intense. To me, I felt it wasn’t so much that it was intense, but needing to get used to the different learning environment and the schedule. I cannot stress how important being organized and on top of things is (especially when there’s all these assignments and presentations you need to do and are due on different dates). Its still something that I need to work on. And front loading! When you have time, try to get ahead. Instructors will tell you during the beginning of the semester to read through the syllabus and information regarding the assignments and midterms and to not leave it till the last minute. But do you listen? Most likely not because neither did I. Haha! But read them! At least skim through them. Because a lot of the assignments require you to reflect back on things that you have done in past clinical experiences. If you have an idea of what you need to look for early on, you will know what to look for and be more likely to pay attention to things that you otherwise might have overlooked or forgotten. So when the time comes by to write that paper, you will have more experiences to go by.

I have a patho midterm coming up on Monday that I am totally unprepared for so I will leave this entry here.
Time to cram!
