When I was younger, I was heavily involved in competitive sport. I was playing soccer, dancing, figure skating, cheerleading, doing track and field, etc. The number of hours I spent on a field, at a rink or in a gym probably surpass the number I have spent in a classroom over the years. I once … More On the Canadian Olympic team.
For a Canadian, I haven’t really traveled the country as much as most people think I have. This past summer I have had the opportunity to travel to Toronto for my very first time. Although I was traveling alone I have plenty of friends in the city and was lucky enough to be able to … More Thoughts from Toronto
This is the first I’m Sorry. Not the first time I’ve apologized, I am Canadian after all. This is the first time I apologize to them. I apologize for our friendship really falling apart. For beginning to have a life past them and high school. For taking what little time I had outside of work … More The First I’m Sorry
Now I know we are under 5 posts in on this old blog and all of you are probably thinking ‘shut the f&%k up about school already’ but that is what my life was.

Sometimes we all wish we could go back to a specific time, place, person or state of mind. This post was written in one of those moments. I wanted to go back to what seemed like a happy time in the middle of a very lonely week. This post originally contained photos of all of … More Sometimes we all wish we could go back.
At the time I was writing this, I thought this might have been an apt recap of my very first week at any university. Looking back, the view I have of my very first week of university is much more romanticized. I should have been writing about all the new places I found to study, … More Uni Week 1 Survival?
This was written in the honeymoon phase of starting to university. I was still that keen straight A student who was completely focused on getting into the nitty gritty of studying. Not much had happened as of yet. I hadn’t even sat across the table from some of my current friends in our first class … More Nervous Excitement

I was more than excited to start the journey of University and figure out who I was without the kind of structure that had predicated my life before. There was also a sense of naïvety. I thought that I wouldn’t … More What I thought was the Begining
