Good Tea, Great Friends, and a Creepy Mall Santa
Can anyone else support me when saying, “I cannot believe it’s Wednesday already!?”
Today, I got another final out of the way which means another weight (a very heavy weight) has been lifted off of my shoulders and I am that much closer to being home!
As all other university students, I have been a busy bee – studying my little brains out. Days become long, but last night I managed to get out and meet my friend at where else but…
(I have been to DAVIDsTEA every single day for the past… week and a half? Yes. I have a problem.)
My friend has never been to DAVIDsTEA before which I thought was ridiculous, so I suggested that we take a study break, go to DAVID’s, and tour the mall
I beat her there, so I did some Christmas shopping of my own I love Christmas shopping
I always put a lot of thought into my gifts It usually takes me forever to pick out what to get! I need it to be perfect.
Once my friend got to the mall, we headed straight for DAVID’s Seeing as how she had never experienced the wonderfulness that is DAVIDsTEA before, I suggested a tea I knew she would like… and I am sure all of you will fall in love with it, too!
How do you feel about Terry’s Chocolate Oranges?
Yup, David has created a tea that is the flavour of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange!
Perfection? I think so.
This tea is amazing and totally perfect for the season, too I loved it and my friend was equally impressed, too It was so delicious that I had to buy a 100g tin of it for myself Early Christmas presents are allowed right?
The “terry’s chocolate orange tea” is actually called “Oh Christmas Treat” if you wanted to check it out! It is a pu’reh tea and contains dark chocolate shreds and orange peel Trust me – I am sipping at a cup of it as we speak
My friend and I walked around the mall for a bit, chatted about Christmas, and then we found Santa!
Neither of us could remember the last time we had a picture taken with the jolly guy, so we figured we’d make a memory and have our picture taken
Santa wasn’t too impressed with us posing with our DAVIDsTEA cups. Apparently he doesn’t like sharing the spot light?
I was so happy to get out and see my friend I am incredibly blessed to have such amazing friends here in London. I have wonderful friends back home, too, but I really am thankful for the incredible people I have met here within the past year.
University is so much different than elementary and high school (obviously). I grew up in a really small town where the kids you went to kindergarten with were the same kids you graduated with. Don’t get me wrong, I have wonderful friends and I talk to many of them every day, but when you are in university you have the ability to find people, special people, who have similar interests, passions, ideas, likes, dislikes, and so on with you
My friend totally made my night last night. When she saw me in the mall, she ran up to me and gave me a gigantic hug I love hugs.
Another friend invited me to meet up with her before our exam today She also gave me a huge hug right when I walked into the room
Friends are a wonderful thing and I am sure thankful for the ones I have!
I am even thankful for my “blog” friends Yes, YOU! Each comment that you leave for me after a post means the world to me and I want you to know how much I appreciate each of them Last night’s post was all about me and I wasn’t sure what type of responses would come from it, but they were all really pleasant and positive, for that – I thank you
Even though I could go on and on about how much I love my friends, I should probably get back to studying. Only two more exams left! I can do it!
Have a wonderful night!
Have you ever taken a picture with a mall Santa?
Terry’s Chocolate Oranges – Yay or nay?
