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.


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…)

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. (more…)

Just Like That.

My last post, “This Is My Time” was all about the future. Where I see myself in the future, my goals, my dreams, my aspirations. This post is going to be a little different. And by different. I mean, it’s about the past. The past year in specific. The day I’m posting this is October 8, 2012. Thanksgiving. I opened my @JuanGarridoGL  twitter account last year, October 7. My first blogpost was October 10; last year’s Thanksgiving. So I figured, this would be an appropriate time to talk about everything that has changed in the past year, and to give thanks once again!  (more…)

Start of Something New!

First things first, welcome to my blog and my very first post! My name is Juan Garrido, and I’m one of Glendon College’s eAmbassadors this year! I’ll be blogging and tweeting about what it’s like to be a student here at Glendon. My current plan is to get my Trilingual iBA with a double major in French and Drama Studies, and at the end of this year I’m going to apply for the Concurrent French Education program offered here. That’s basically a fancy way of saying that I’m insane. I live on residence, so any questions you have about living on campus, feel free to ask me in the comments section, or in the handy Formspring widget over here —->

I could go on forever introducing myself, but I’ll stop myself. That way if you want to know more about me you’ll just have to keep reading my blog ;)

So as any Canadian knows, today is Thanksgiving up here in the Great White North. So I thought I’d answer that age-old question: What am I thankful for? Essentially I’m thankful for opportunity. (more…)
