The Best Group Project
Posted
I failed to mention in my last post that among some not-so-great group work experiences this term, there was one that will probably stand as the best group project I’ve ever been a part of. Alice, Mumbi, Roshan, Asena, Lisa, and I all worked together to create this article about the Libyan ...

Remember when I said I was going to try and write more? Well that went down the drain pretty quick. Unfortunately that means that this one is going to be pretty long. In some ways I can’t believe that I’ve already been in London for nearly four months, but on the other hand, when I &#...

A New Chapter
Posted
It’s hard to believe I haven’t updated this blog in nearly two years. Obviously a lot has happened since then, so I’ll skip to the highlights. I suppose the biggest piece of news is that I’ve recently relocated to the UK to study Multimedia Journalism in a Masters program ...

Roadtrip #1
Took a roadtrip to BC and Montana this past weekend with my good friends Sarah, Celia, and Spencer. I spent most of my time annoying my friends with my ukulele playing or taking photos. Here are some of my favourites–don’t worry, I won’t post any of my ukulele playing.   (Callin...

Lately I’ve been feeling a little… well, burnt out. Burnout is certainly something that I’ve experienced before–I get overwhelmed by the amount of things going on in my life and my effort to continue doing all them leaves me pretty exhausted. And, if you read my post about...

Top Ten Reasons to Visit Pittsburgh
(Note: I wrote this as a fake clickbait article for school, but I actually think it’s pretty great. So I’m sharing it!) “Why would anyone ever want to go to Pittsburgh?” It’s a question I hear a lot, so I figured–why not answer it? Here’s my top ten reaso...

Finding Balance
Posted
Balance. You don’t have to know me very well or for very long to understand that balance is something that I really struggle with in my life. I’m not talking about my depth perception and center of gravity–although I am one of the clumsiest people you’ll ever meet, and ...

Another Summer, Come and Gone
It’s officially the last weekend before school starts up again. Hard to believe–in some ways it feels like I was just in Ecuador yesterday, and in others, it feels like it was a lifetime ago. It’s been a short summer, in the way summers always are, but when I stop to think of ho...

Nothing More to Win
I always try to keep an air of professionalism when I talk about the Edmonton Oil Kings, but when you invest so much time and emotion into something over the years, spending countless hours in cold rinks, living and dying by the win-loss record of a hockey team–it’s hard to keep it se...
