Life Updates.

It has been a crazy year to say the least. I think this is the first summer in at least 3 years where i’m not completely stressed about something. I don’t have to take summer school and finish my master’s while balancing full time work, i’ve moved into my third year of nursing, and my […]

Views.

The Times You Live In.

It’s been a chaotic few weeks to say the least. I’m grateful for having had the chance to get away for my reading week and take some time to focus on something other than school. I guess I would say the past couple weeks have been filled with a lot of anxiety and recurrences of […]

The Power of Grit.

“Ability to learn is not fixed, that it can change with your effort” Growing up I was always seen as the “weaker” student compared to my fellow peers. Whether it be starting off in French immersion school and being told I couldn’t handle it or starting off grade one having to be taught to read […]

You’re probably thinking, why do you even care since you’re Canadian. I care because I am an educated woman, a minority, and a global citizen. I get it, Trump winning was not a surprise, I knew it was coming as soon as the debates began to start. Everyone keeps talking about how it was “unanticipated” that […]

Learning to Fail.

Today I arose from a deep slumber (perks of being sick) to the frantic texts of someone I care about, let alone to seeing them cry when I FaceTimed them. It turns out they got a C+ on their one exam, when on their others they received a B and B+ respectively. While a C+ isn’t […]
