The Oppressive Limitations of Time; Let’s Talk About Podcasts

So, I don’t have nearly the amount of free time in my life that I used to, mainly because I have the time management skills of a very tired old tortoise who has never seen a clock, and doesn’t know that the passage of time exists.
…University is hard when it takes you fifteen minutes of deep thought to write a single sentence, js. (#overthinkers #stress #help ??)

I’m behind on every single one of my favourite tv shows, and my to-read pile is less of a pile and more of an entire shelf, but that’s where podcasts come in! They’re so terribly convenient. I listen to podcasts when I’m cleaning, when I’m travelling, and when I’m trying to unwind before bed (I know that a book will just keep me awake until the final pages are turned). They’re a very student-friendly form of media.

That being said I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you in no particular order: Continue reading The Oppressive Limitations of Time; Let’s Talk About Podcasts

OneWord365: Revitalize

Every year the eAmbassadors like to join in the #oneword365 trend. Instead of coming up with a New Year’s Resolution, the idea is to pick a single word to shape your year by. Last year I chose Faith, and you can read that post here.

This year I’m choosing Revitalize, because almost every aspect of my life needs to be imbued with more energy and pizazz. I got the idea for my word from some late night pondering, which I of course documented on Twitter.

Finding Truth & Community in Stories

For as long as I can remember I have known one thing about myself to be true in the most absolute of ways; that I am meant to take part in the telling of meaningful stories. Continue reading Finding Truth & Community in Stories

The Different Rules of Summer

Summer has always been my favourite season. I love the heat of it, the way the air clings to your skin and makes you feel its presence. I love the potential that stretches among all those endless sunny days, taunting you with adventures you haven’t even thought up yet.

Summer is a time for resolutions, plans, and positivity in my world. It has always seemed more like a beginning point than January does. (Then again, I’m prejudiced against any month when the weather is colder than 15C.)

15 Signs That You’re a Glendonite

Like many university campuses Glendon has it’s own lore, lingo, and -dare I say- it’s own memes. Thanks to the incredible people that make up our student body and faculty, our small, cozy campus is full of a sense of community and shared student experience. On that note, here are 15 things that indicate you’re on Team Lionheart:

Why You Should Make Friends with an International Student

Weeks ago, I jokingly told my fellow eAmbassador Isabel Duque, -who is Colombia born and Ecuador raised- that I was going to write a post about her. I was just messing around at the time, but the idea stuck so here we go; an Isabel-inspired blog post:

Despite it’s small size Glendon is a great place to mingle with a diverse group of people. The international and bilingual focus of the academics at the campus attract a lot of students from other countries, as well as people from across Canada. I guarantee that you can’t stroll across campus on a weekday without hearing two or more different languages being spoken.

On Being Tired (#santéGL)

I’ve been trying to write a post about mental health for two weeks now. As you may or may not know, Bell’s “Let’s Talk” day was last week which has inspired my social media feeds to be full of everything and anything mental illness related.

(“Let’s Talk” is a cool day-long event across Canada, one I frankly don’t know enough about. The gist is that it’s a day to talk about mental illnesses and end the stigma surrounding them. Here’s the website link: http://letstalk.bell.ca/en/ ).

Us Glendon eAmbassadors decided it would be nice to have a week dedicated to #santeGL posts (or #GLhealth to all of my fellow anglophones) in honour of the day.

But guys, I’m tired.
