A Toronto-based (free) activity to do for each day of the week for students

You probably know I have a lot of time on my hands right now, which means I have a lot more reason to get out of my academic bubble and do other things, without feeling like I should be somewhere more important. The great thing about going to school in the city is being in…

Make wall art for your home or future classroom in 15 minutes

I'm on Reading Week right now as a University student - which is basically March Break in February.

280-character tweets I can get on board with: Your encouragement for the week

So recently, Twitter changed its character limit. Instead of 140-character-tweets, it's 280. Some people like it, some don't - kinda like the snowfall we've had in the past week, which I absolutely loved (probably either because I don't drive and therefore don't have to brave the streets or because I'm rooting for a white Christmas,…

University life is all about trying new things - so here's to this make-up look I tried out courtesy of the amazing Kristianna!
