Two Middle Easterners try the food of their lands in the lands of their home

We went around Toronto trying Middle Eastern food as an Iraqi and Turk this past winter break and all our cravings were satisfied that day I can tell ya that much! Enjoy the vlog! Leave a thumbs up or comment if you've ever tried Middle Eastern food! What was it that you had? Would you…

19 things to do before hitting 20

Turning 19 is apparently a milestone because you've just become mature enough to make alcoholic choices in the eyes of society and well, law. I'm sure there's more to being 19 than the legality though, especially if you're not much of a drinker. 19 is one year closer to 20... which means soon enough I won't be able to blame my bad choices…

VIDEO: 5 weeks captured in 5 minutes – Explore 2016

Currently still in Winnipeg for a couple more weeks for Langues et Travail but man have I been reminiscing about the past couple of weeks here! Explore officially ended a week ago and so I channeled my post-Explore depression into making a recap video. It's one way to remind me what I enjoyed most and to give a little…

Thankfully most of the posts I've seen all week are by beautiful ladies showing some love to the influential women in their lives! This week is all about empowering women.…

“We love you Frosh week, yes we do!”

"We love you frosh week, it's true!"  It's been about a week since Frosh ended and I've definitely started to reminisce. 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…
