How to Fake it

Since starting school again, my schedule has become hectic, with classes, assignments, readings, friends, cooking, exercise, more readings, midterms, finals and... oh, yeah. Sleep. There are definitely days that are overwhelming and days that I don't feel like I can deal with what is in front of me. But despite how I feel, some of... Continue Reading →

Do it Anyway

As you will know from past blog posts, the last 10 months or so of my life have been hectic, full of change and a lot of challenges. And during this time I've had to reach out for help - something I truly struggle with. But by asking for help, I received a lot of... Continue Reading →

Why I Wear a Poppy

Every November I take a moment on the 11th to remember. No matter where I am. Every November, I buy a poppy. In the last couple of weeks, I've had a few people ask me why I wear one. Mostly friends who are new to Canada and don't know about Remembrance Day. I struggled to... Continue Reading →

Tihar

Currently in Nepal, those who are Hindu, are celebrating the festival of Tihar (similar to Diwalli in India). This was written last year, when I was in Nepal, after my first visit to a village, which just happened to occur during this festival. I had been invited to the office on the first day of...

Waiting, hoping for the right outcome. While I was reading, I came across this quote: "Women are strong, and we are perpetually resilient, but we are exhausted.... Continue Reading →

Fall

This past weekend was the official start of fall in Canada. For some provinces it meant beautiful fall-like weather, with the leaves on the trees slowly changing colours. While other provinces saw snow (I got a snapchat from my brother on Friday golfing in the snow - welcome to Canada haha). However, this isn't exactly... Continue Reading →

Build a Better Boat

"Now and then I let it go, I ride the waves I can't control I'm learnin' how to build a better boat" One day this summer I was driving home, I don't remember exactly where I had been. And this song came on the radio. A new song from Kenny Chesney. I'm definitely a country... Continue Reading →

September 11th

My memories of September 11th 2001 are vague at best. I was 6, having just started grade 1. I remember my dad picking my brother and I up from school, a rarity. My parents didn't want us taking the bus home in case other kids were talking about what had happened. They were worried we... Continue Reading →
