In honour of #IWD: Ladies, it starts with us!

If you've been tweeting about International Women's Day because you've been trying to tell men or more specifically your EX that he should have loved you more, you're doing it wrong. 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.…

Spaghetti and baseballs – Going deeper than dreams

I had a dream the other day that I was trying to catch a baseball but it suddenly turned into spaghetti! Like no plate, no container, just spaghetti and meatballs flat onto the palm of my hand. It gets weirder because I then turned to a friend and shared the spaghetti with them (straight out of…

Doing life afraid – In honour of #BellLetsTalk

I really wanted to join in the talk about mental health this week with my fellow eAmbassadors to stress the importance of realizing and taking care of the state of your mind.

I wouldn't be a true first-year Glendon fangirl if I didn't dedicate a blog post to Glendon and its Autumn scenery... so this is the post that solidifies my "on a scale of 1-10, how much do you love Glendon" level of 100. It's also somewhat of a continuation of my last post because I wanted to share…

Ahh the famous Mean Girls quote. If I had a quarter for every time someone used it on me! Picture an innocent little 6 year old who wore pink-everything, a mischievous smile, and pig tails on her head every day. That was me when my family moved from Iraq to spend 2 years in Africa. My dad…
