YouTubers I’ve been watching instead of Netflix lately

This lent, I decided to give up New Girl on Netflix after considering the typical omnivore diet. As tempting as it's been to turn on Netflix and push aside my plans to take part in the occasion, I'm doing it in hopes of gaining more time with God - whether it gives me more time to…

Reading Week : 3 things that have taken up my break for the past 3 years

I'm sure I can speak for any University student (who had a rough first half of this semester & who took advantage of last week) when I say: this past break was so well needed. I spent my reading week: 1. on an annual retreat with my church's youth, 2. catching up with good friends over coffee…

Christmas Chats with Radio Glendon #FêtesGL

Every year, the eAmbassadors blog about our holidays using the hashtag #FêtesGL. Last Friday, I had the chance to talk to Marie, hostess of "What's Going On" at Radio Glendon. We talked all things Christmas, my absolute favourite holiday ever. So this year, I'm talking about a white Christmas, family traditions, and challenging the cookie-cutter…

Last year we leapt, this year we’ll walk #OneWord365

Happy New Year, y'all! 2017 already, hey? Feels like 2016 played peek-a-boo and just never came back (where did it go!?) Now this new year, I've closed my eyes on resolutions once again, and I've taken to the one-word-challenge to keep me in check of my goal to grow, to love, and to live fully. Let's recall what…

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…

Why we need someone like Trump

My prof in my creative writing class today asked, "Why is silence sometimes sweeter than sound?" And having just gotten off Twitter from reading way too many depressing tweets, I was about to raise my hand to say, "If Trump was silent for the past 40 years, this morning would have been much sweeter." But that's not true.…

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…
