I've decided that this year is going to be a year of powerful action words for me. I will fortify; I will strive; no stone will be unturned, and no work undone. I'll be more disciplined, but also more positive. Each day will be greeted with determination. If every important facet of life was represented … Continue reading Fortify!
"One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!’ This … Continue reading We Must Grow Up: on saying goodbye
I've talked before on this blog about how going to Glendon was a no-brainer for me for a variety of reasons, but I don't think I've ever really touched on the bilingual aspect. I'm an anglophone, but I have French-Canadian roots (exhibit A: my very french last name). My paternal grandfather, who I shared a … Continue reading Why is Glendon Bilingualism Important?
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 … Continue reading On Being Tired (#santéGL)
Sooooo, it's January. The holidays are over, a new year has begun, and with it comes a new semester. First semester was a bit of a struggle for me, -as it is for many first years- there's just so much to adjust to! University life can definitely be a shock to your system, and us … Continue reading The Holidays, A New Semester, and #oneword365; a threefold update from a lazy writer
I’ve detailed many of my reasons for choosing to go to Glendon on this blog previously, but never my strangest one: I deeply, deeply appreciate the way Glendon brands itself. Branding, advertising, public relations, whatever you want to call it, is something I’m interested in, or rather, fascinated by. Also, despite not being particularly knowledgeable, … Continue reading Choosing Glendon: My Weirdest Reason
In the past few weeks I have written several blog posts, and posted zero of them, as I’m sure at least a few of you noticed. I got pretty personal in my last post which touched on my struggles with mental illness, and the response I received was great, but a little bit overwhelming for … Continue reading Mystery of the disappearing blogger
I am sorry for the quality of this video; something about the way I uploaded it made the image quality drop drastically. Also, it was quiet hours when I filmed so you might want to turn your volume up to hear me, I didn't want to go full on into my vlogger voice and annoy … Continue reading Settling In On Campus (Video)
About a month ago I wrote a post about how slowly Summer was moving. Boy, has my perspective on that changed. I didn't know what busy looked like back in July. August flew by so quickly and my schedule has been so packed, I'm not entirely sure the whole month hasn't been a hazy dream. … Continue reading Contradicting An Earlier Post
Less than two weeks now until I move into my dorm, and I. Am. So. Excited. It’s almost embarrassing how much I love Glendon already when you consider that I’ve only been there in person once. I was in a few clubs in highschool and we really struggled to bring school spirit to our little … Continue reading On Excitement
