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

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.

I deeply, deeply appreciate the way Glendon brands itself.

Why I am a Success Story and You Probably are Too (#GLsuccess)

This week, us eAmbassadors are writing about success.

We were in our monthly meeting and got a little off topic railing on how unattainable ideals of success for today’s students can be, which then lead to a discussion of what success even is. Francette, who is of course one of the oldest and wisest of us and therefore full of great ideas, suggested we do a themed week where we each would talk about our own personal ideas of success.

So here I am trying to ruminate on success while sitting in a dorm common room with some friends, all of us pretending to be productive in-between bouts of singing Adele and Hillary Duff. (#reslifestruggles)
