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…

Every job I’ve had and what each one taught me about myself and the world

I've been reflecting on the past couple of years of my life lately (because I'm getting to the point where I have to make decisions, ugh.) I believe if you want to look forward in life you should probably look back first to see number one: how far you've come, and number two: what you can…

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

Commuting VS Residence | Pros & Cons

A student asked me a really relevant and refreshing question this past month: "Should I commute and stay home with my family or should I move out when I get into university?" Shoutout to this person for giving me a really good blog idea (copy-pasting most of my response here): the pros and cons of…

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.
