Millenials Suffer From Nostalgia

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. It seems like everyone is obsessed with talking about millennials. The shocking truths. How to market to us. Our job prospects. How we ruin everything. How it’s not our fault that we ruin everything. Figuring out how millennial you are. Even about our breakfast habits.

Multiethnic Group of People Social Networking at Cafe

This picture is actually called “Multiethnic Group of People Social Networking at Cafe”. It’s so millennial.

However I’m going to add to the over saturation of this discourse.

I want to talk about nostalgia. And how us millennials are suffering from it.

(Disclaimer: One reason I’m tired of these millennial articles is how they paint a whole generation with a huge broad stroke. And now I’m about to do that. I’m a hypocrite.)

Is it too late?

The 5th Annual Thanksgiving Post aka My 100th Post aka So Many Emotions

My first post back in 2011 was about Thanksgiving and so every year since then I’ve written another post about what I’m thankful for. And as I sat down to write 2015’s, I realized that this year’s also corresponds with my 100th post.

100.

Also known as my emotional eating pants.

A lot has happened in these 100 posts, and the past 4 years. It’s my 5th year, and while I’ve loved my time at Glendon, and while I’m terrifiedexcitedscarednervoushappyandlikeimgoingtothrowupandcry for the future, I know that at the end of this school year, I’ll be ready to go.

I’ll be ready to move on to the next chapter in my life, wherever that takes me. I’ll be ready to use all the lessons, experiences and skills I’ve learned over my 5 years at Glendon to be successful. So I want to thank the entire Glendon community… (more…)

4 Things I’m Thankful For

Every year, I make sure to write a blogpost for Thanksgiving in honour of me writing my very first blogpost for #TeamAwesome (AKA, the wonderful crew of Glendon bloggers that show how beautiful… and talented and smart that we Glendonites are!). Since this is my fourth Thanksgiving blogpost I’m writing, here are 4 things I’m thankful for. (more…)

The Importance Of Finding Mentors

Everybody knows university is the optimal space to gain new experiences, obtain ground-breaking knowledge and start to learn about yourself, what you want out of life and for your future. These three facets of university – experience, knowledge and self-discovery – are what I believe make university so great.

_MG_0006The fact that there is an institution in society that simultaneously teaches people what they’re passionate about, educates them about their passions and also provides them with so many opportunities to explore and develop themselves is incredible. And I love being part of it. (more…)

To Infinity and Beyond…

My first Christmas in Toronto in 1994.

My first Christmas in Toronto in 1994.

Ahh December, time for gifts, family time, winter and a little self-reflection on the year that’s ending. Usually people save the year-long reflections for the end of the month due to New Year’s but this year I’m looking back on the past year a little earlier because of what happened in early December last year.

Why I’m Thankful For Residence

It was small Thanksgiving this year: just my brother and I. But I made it all!

In which I pretend to be Kelly by photographing the Thanksgiving dinner that I made my brother and I!

This is now my third year as an eAmbassador. I started off my blog two years ago on Thanksgiving, and then wrote a Thanksgiving-themed post last year. Keeping with tradition and now celebrating my third year living on residence, this blog post is about how thankful I am for living on residence.  Each year has given me something else to be thankful for.

3 Things I’ve Learned At Glendon

Gosh, I can’t believe I’m already in my third year at Glendon. I’ve already completed two years at Glendon, but it seems like so long ago that I first entered Glendon and moved into residence. As I type this I can hear Frosh cheering and having fun outside my window, and I can’t believe that I was them just two years ago.  I’m a very different person than when I first started, which can seem very scary.
