I am homeless and apparently so are you #whyareYUhere

Yes, I may have just called you homeless. BUT. Before you start throwing shade (or shelter my way... depending on the type of person you are since I'm also homeless), let me explain. I am not homeless - I am blessed to be living under a roof with heat - though sometimes it's a battle to use…

VIDEO: Camping but not really – A day in the life of a Meso refugee

After last week's elections, a number of  Americans from what I've noticed seem to want to hop in to their cars on a one-way road trip to Canada ASAP. The persecution is unbearable to the point that it would be dangerous or even impossible to live in the geographic location they call home. Also see: what is a refugee. My…

You have to be charismatic to be a leader (Myth 1 out of 5 on leadership)

I'd like to flat out tell you (and hope you'd be convinced) that last week was life-changing for me but you're going to be indifferent. I would only hope that you would believe me and take everything I say as pure truth, but I know you will not empathize with what I'm about to tell you…

“We love you Frosh week, yes we do!”

The first day set the bar for the rest of the week, and that's the day I knew I didn't waste $144 of my low standing bank account. I've listed my "prior-to-frosh" excuses I made not…

JumpStart – More Like A Leap!

35 hours, 18 lectures, 1 fried-happy brain... That's JumpStart! Over the past 5 days, I took part in a program called JumpStart, and as much as my brain basically almost jumped out of the frying pan, I enjoyed all of the spark and fun. The program aims to teach future students the tricks of the trade that is known…
