Time to Get Serious(ly pumped about University)!

So to begin, this is my first post as a real eAmbassador which is unbelievably exciting! I think I’m going to leave my old posts up, but anything before this post is exactly that: a “before” post that I probably won’t be revisiting. From now on I’ll be posting every Tuesday evening, and also tweeting regularly from @britneyrobinGL.

In other news, I met most of the eAmbassador team at training and they’re all really wonderful people that I’m thrilled to be working with. Seriously, their blogs don’t lie, all of them are genuinely friendly and helpful, not to mention funny and charismatic. I’m just sitting there pretending to be cool enough to be one of them, and hoping no one sees through me.

Now onto today’s actual topic:

Contradicting An Earlier Post

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. I wouldn’t be surprised if I woke up tomorrow and it was still July and the whole month was just my imagination (just kidding…mostly!).

On Excitement

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 community. We managed to do really amazing things, -and I’ll always be proud of the group of students I worked with- but we were so few in number. The Glendon community seems to have so many students with admirable passion for their school and the world around it. I can’t wait to be a part of that. (Reason #4578145 why I chose York; passionate students and staff.)

I’m actually doing both orientation weeks, Frosh and Jumpstart, because I’m determined to start this part of my life right both socially and academically and I’m bouncing off the walls with impatience.

See you soon Glendon!

Choosing Glendon: Part 1

Choosing a university was one of the most stressful decisions I’ve had to make in my life. However, it was also an experience that taught me a lot about myself and what I value in life, something that every worthwhile experience tends to do.

My final decision? York University, Glendon Campus. (Une campus bilingue!)

But how did I choose?

Quick Thoughts on Moving Forward and Summer

I’m absolutely shocked by how slow this year’s Summer is going by! So far it feels like an endless haze of long, boring days spent twiddling my thumbs and aimlessly browsing Netflix. The opposite is actually true; this is the first Summer that I have a real job, and I’m constantly out with friends in my down time. Not to mention the sheer amount of novels I’ve devoured in the past few weeks. Yet, I just can’t seem to get over the feeling that time is dragging on!!
