2018 Recaptured

Hello to all my classmates, friends, teachers, employers and future employers who are reading this blog. So after like eight months of no updates, I’ve decided to end 2018 with one concluding blog post and start 2019 with a redesigned website that actually reflects the now 20 year old me. In addition, if you’re a future employer browsing through this blog to see what my personality is like, I have included two sections for both my writing portfolio and graphic design portfolio, so if you’re curious as to the work I’ve done from my previous co-ops, they’re right here on my blog for your convenient access. Now that I’m done with my self-promotion, let’s talk about wrapping up this year and preparing for the next.

Things I Learned in 2017

Processed with VSCO with e8 preset

I originally was gonna start this EOT post with ranting about how bad my 2A term went, how much I hated 4/5 of the courses that I took, and how I nearly felt like academia tortured my mental health and soul, but since today is the last day of 2017, I think it’d be better to do a yearly wrap-up. To start off, I’ll tell you briefly that this term wasn’t a good term for me, “good” isn’t even the appropriate word to describe how the four months have been. “horrible” would probably make a better word.

(late) January updates

Hey guys!

I’m gonna start off by saying that January 2017 could have started off better. I got sick on the 2nd and got my period a day later. For the guys out there who don’t know what that feels like, the simplest equation I can come up with is sick + period = death. I was basically a zombie for the first week of school because I had no energy.

(late) New Year’s Resolutions

I know, I know, I’m super late to talking about my New Year’s Resolutions which were supposed to be posted at the beginning of January, which by now I’m finally finished with. My reasons for being late include the fact that launching a new website (a self-hosted one) and dealing with all the technical components around it took a bit of time. I also spent the past two weeks starting my second term at university, getting used to my new courses and trying to get back into the pace of university.

Goodbye 2016

2016.

A year that included the killing of a gorilla, mass shootings, a series of terrorist attacks, humanitarian disasters, deaths of a few celebrities, a wildfire in Alberta and president Donald Trump. Many people I’ve talked to have told me this has been one of their worse years with what’s happened in the news. As much as I sympathize with them on how terrible the events throughout the year turned out to be, this year was a year of discoveries, realizations and somehow for me.

What I’ve Learned from Dating an Upper-year

I can’t believe finals are starting next week and my first semester of first-year is already ending, but time does go by a lot faster in university and I’ve realized that unless I put effort into living in the moment and having fun with friends in my spare time, it’s too easy to spend all day studying.
