So as my third year of university wraps up, I decided to share some of the pictures I’ve been taking during it. Hope you enjoy them, and if you’d like to know some of the stories behind the photos, please comment below!
This is a quick heads up that I won’t be posting anything for the next month.
March has been pretty crazy for me already between working for the newspaper, schoolwork, and doing a bunch of interviews for summer jobs. Unfortunately, it’s not going to settle down until about mid-April, so I won’t be able to write anything before then.
I’m hoping to post a lot this summer and maybe start a few new writing series, and I’m considering doing another 30 day writing challenge as well during either June or July. Until then, I’ve been updating the masterpost of articles I’ve been writing for the campus newspaper, so if you want to see some of my current work, check it out!
Hope you’re all well, and I’ll be back on here in about a month!
I just wanted to post a brief message to all you lovely followers for the holiday season.
I hope that you have a good Christmas or holiday break with all your loved ones. May you eat all the cookies and good food and not worry about how many calories are in them.
As well, I want to wish you all an early Happy New Year. I hope your 2017 has been full of good things and amazing accomplishments, and that 2018 brings even more. I know I already have a few ideas for the blog up my sleeve for next year, so keep an eye out for them!
See you all in the New Year, and happy holidays!
Jypsie, Jyps, Tipsy, Sexy, Houdini, Dummkopf, you were known by many names.
You always knew where the best sun patch was inside and outside. You’d always lie on the picnic table, napping for hours under the sun and keeping an eye on the kitchen. I’m sure at some point you must have been raised by a cat, since you were a very strange dog.
Of course, you also got into a fair amount of trouble. From digging holes to escaping the yard so many times, we had to keep it shut with a belt. It’s amazing that you managed to teach our old dog Jerzy your tricks as well, you two were a ridiculous duo when you combined your talents.
You were a good hunter too, fitting for a family of hunters. You were oh so proud to come into the house one day smacking on the feathers of the bird you’d just caught. We’ll miss our bird and mouse hunter.
You also never understood the concept of personal space. It didn’t matter if the three of us girls were on the couch, you’d find some room to squish your fluffy butt into. Sharing the back seat with you on car rides meant at some point, you would have a dog on your lap that demanded attention.
You got me through some rough times, either by spending a few hours cuddled close or by sharing your infectious good energy. Nobody could say no to your goofy grin greeting everyone that stepped through the door.
Saying goodbye to you was really hard, but I’m glad that you waited until I was home, so I was there to sneak in a few last pets.
I hope you are at peace, running around with Jerzy and getting spoiled to no end in heaven.
Love you always,
As you know, I’m writing for my university’s newspaper this year, which is partially why I’m not writing on here as much. I’m a staff writer, which means I’ve been writing an article for each issue of the newspaper.
I figured to make up for the lack of posts on here, I’d make a master post of all my newspaper articles so that you can read them when the blog is quiet. A quick word of warning; since I write for my university’s newspaper, the articles are geared more towards those that go to or have gone to my university. However, I hope my articles are relevant to any university students out there.
Also, it should go without saying, that all the articles belong to the Xaverian Weekly, and not to myself personally. They have all been edited and reviewed by my fantastic editors and the co-editors-in-chief (round of applause for all the hard work they do).
So, without further ado, here are links to my articles I’ve written so far!
I just wanted to write a quick post since it’s Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend. I hope that all of you take advantage of the time off to relax and have some fun with your family and friends. As well, make sure to get your fill on all the best foods that Thanksgiving offers. I’m talking cranberries, pie, mashed potatoes, turkey buns, sweet potatoes…the whole nine yards.
For those of you that are unable to visit home for the holidays like me, try and make the best of the long weekend. If you need advice for surviving the weekend, I just wrote a piece about Thanksgiving away from home for my university’s newspaper, which you can find here.
I also hope all of you are enjoying the beginning of fall as well, and are taking advantage of the awesome seasonal activities. I know I’ve already restrained myself from buying a lot of mini pumpkins to decorate my dorm room…
If you guys have any cool things you’ve got planned for the fall or Thanksgiving, let me know about them below so I get some inspiration for what to do on my weekends!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and have a lovely weekend!
Hello to my lovely followers!
Since I’m now writing articles weekly for my school newspaper, I decided I will only be posting once a month. There might be some months where I’ll be writing two posts, but for now, I’ve decided to only commit to one post in the interest of my academic and personal life.
I hope you all stick around, I’ll be continuing the Surviving a University Course series this semester, with some possible bonus posts as well. And, if you want to check out my school newspaper and all the awesome content from the people that work there, the link is here.
If any of you are interested in seeing specific content or posts in the following months please leave a comment or send me a message, I’m always open to suggestions!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Since it’s that time of year when I’m on vacation from all the required readings for university courses, I decided to put together a list of what I’m hoping to read instead.
I hope that my reading picks for the summer inspire you guys to maybe expand your reading lists or add some of my picks to them!
So without further ado, here’s my summer reading list:
What are you guys reading? Leave your favorite pick down below in the comments!
P.S. Sorry for the long gap between posts, I took a much needed break! I do have a bunch of great posts queued up for the upcoming school year, so keep your eyes peeled for those!
Since I am a history major and spend a decent amount of time in front of Netflix and watching random videos, I figured I’d share my favorite history related shows or series with you guys!
Shows That Draw on Historical Events:
What are your favourite series or shows that are based around historical events? Leave them down in the comments!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the first shows that really sucked me into the world of sci-fi and fantasy shows. It has a special place in my heart, and I’m hoping to one day get a Buffy cosplay put together.
Anyways, these are my top 8 reasons why I love the show:
I hope these reasons convince you guys to watch a few episodes! And, feel free to leave your favorite things about Buffy or favorite episodes in the comments.
