Story of my Life. Not !

As tiring as it is to hear over and over than LIFE IS TOO SHORT; an overused cliché of a phrase, it is true. I experienced this first hand this year within my circle of friends and family. I think back to a poem I wrote last year and the line; death doesn’t discriminate. I…

Battle of the Wills

One of my favourite days of the year happens to be Feb 15th. Yes, the day AFTER Valentine’s Day. Why? Well, because of the discount chocolate. Unfortunately, for me however  Walmart looked like this. I didn’t even enter the Square One plaza area. Option number 2 was almost as satisfying. Since it was reading week…

Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

Who else has gotten lost in the hallway tunnels of Davis? I appreciate that I don’t have to walk in the cold, but I’ve gotten lost so many times I’ve lost count. It feels like I’m re-living my day like that episode of supernatural (Mystery Spot) where Sam and Dean are stuck in a never…

Happy New Year! Not

  Believe it or Not January is almost OVER.  I wonder how many New Year’s resolutions have been buried and lost forever. RIP New Year’s resolutions. BTW, who else was angry that our Campus started earlier than St. George? We needed more recuperation from the food comas New Year’s Eve parties gave us. Not to…

Hack-a-thon Adventure

Is it just me or is everyone getting sick. I feel much better now, but the past few weeks I was coughing like a maniac. Every time I coughed I felt like my head was about to explode. Anyway, let’s go back on topic. Last week I went to Office of Student Transition Hackathon with…

Christmas Takeover

It’s not even December yet and already stores are setting up Christmas decorations, radios are blaring holiday jingles and one of my neighbours decorated their house the week after Halloween. I’m still trying to digest the aftermath of Thanksgiving and my past midterms. I keep thinking to myself, that there is no way Christmas is…

Life is spontaneous so learn to embrace it

Life never goes as planned when you want it to. But, sometimes that’s not bad.  In high school I wasn’t receptive to socializing. In fact I shied away from it, until I moved to another school for senior year. I felt like I could start anew and I slowly started talking to more people and…

How to Deal with Failure

Failure no matter how small is difficult to deal with. I can say this from experience.  I used to be overly critical every-time I would “fail” at a task. Sometimes it was about not reaching a goal or completing the task up to my standards.  As cheesy as it sounds sometimes the journey is more…

study tips

School doesn’t have to be that way. It’s important to recognize that there will be off days where you feel really tired and unmotivated. It’s natural because you are human. Regain your faith in humanity. There are ways to cope. Two weeks ago my Launch group at OST were talking about study tips. We did…

Happy Belated Thanksgiving Everyone!

What did you guys do? Did you enjoy family time? Perhaps eat a turkey with gravy? Or was your Thanksgiving a flop? It can’t be as bad as getting a turkey stuck on your head? Can it? Regardless of whether or not you actually ate turkey, Thanksgiving to me is basically spending time with family…

Calm before the storm

-Tips and tricks on how to maintain your sanity and health The first week of university was making sure I had everything I needed, trying not to be anxious and making new friends. By the second week I was resisting the urge to roll back into bed. When I feel prepared I feel more confident…
