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.
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?
One of my favourite times of the school year is April. Not just because exams and final assignments are finishing up. And not because classes are done. I actually got super sad this year as I saw my friends starting to think about their courses for next year, and I realized that I’m done taking courses for my undergrad.
The reason it’s one of my favourite times of the year is because this is the time that different student clubs and organizations start hiring their new executive team members and setting plans for the coming year. (more…)
On March 28, 2015, I did the coolest thing ever.
I’ve referenced it a couple times in my blog. It’s been my fun fact for every ice breaker since then. And I’ve probably told you about it or mentioned if you’ve talked to me since then.
I gave a talk at TEDxYorkU.
But I never actually wrote a full reflection about it. So here we go. It’s only a year late… (more…)
Back in September, I created a Glendon bucket-list for plans and goals for myself for fourth year. It was a way for me to ensure that I make sure that I had a direction, some focus and that I had things I could work toawrds. So now that all my grades are in, and that the academic year has been done for almost a month (oops.) here is my review of my goals. Did I complete them? Read on to figure out! (more…)
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…)
Si vous ne me connaissez pas, je suis un peu impulsif. Souvent, je dépense trop d’argent quand je vais aux centres commerciales et plus qu’une fois j’ai commandé trop de nourriture. Puis, quand je parlais avec un ami qui est un étudiant à Concordia, j’ai décidé d’y aller pour petit voyage!
Je ne avais pas passé beaucoup de temps à Montréal – j’avais une connection là quand je suis allé à Trois-Pistoles et je pense que ma famille y est allé quand j’étais jeune… peut-être… je ne sais pas.
J’avais hâte d’aller à cette nouvelle ville car j’avais entendu beaucoup de bonnes choses. Donc, avec un peu d’inspiration de Buzzfeed, voici trois trucs que j’ai appris en raison de ce voyage.
University is a time to broaden your intellectual horizons. It’s a time to learn about the world and what keeps it moving. It’s a time to meet new people, experience new cultures and become a well educated member of society.
Glendon has given me incredible opportunities that have led me to learn about myself and the world. Just in this month I have three very new experiences that have only been afforded to be as I am lucky to be part of the Glendon community, be in Toronto and have met some amazing people here. (more…)
