Personality via a Playlist

We all love to press our shuffle button when we listen to our music to add a little element of surprise to our daily lives. “I wonder what song will play next,” we think as a song approaches its end. However, despite having our playlist on shuffle, there’s usually a certain song, artist or genre…

Driving to Success

Ambition is the fuel to succeeding. You can only be successful if you have a goal in mind – but to be honest, that’s just step 1 of the whole process. Making goals is the easy part – you know the saying: “It’s easier said than done.” What is difficult is completing the proceeding steps…

Individuality

Most people try to go about things by following what those around them tend to do. However, I don’t think that’s how it should work. Everyone has their own way of holding a pencil – they may have been taught to hold it a certain way, but people hold their pens and pencils the way…

Time is but an Obstacle

If you ever asked me what superpower I wish to have, at this point, I’d have to say I wish I had the power to stop time. Time is just its own little thing, going at its own pace without giving a care about anything else in the world. I guess you can say that…

People’s Impact on Your Life

Needless to say, we meet a considerable amount of people throughout the course of our lives. Despite meeting so many individuals, only a handful end up sticking around for a good chunk of our lives, especially through our hardships, helping us grow as a person by changing our perspectives, pushing us towards our goals, inspiring us,…

Opportunities

“Missed opportunities only make room for an upcoming opportunity of greater value.” – Me Life for students is definitely very busy as everyone struggles to fit in time for studying, eating, exercising, participating in extra-curricular activities, maintaining a social life, sleeping, etc. Being busy may keep our minds off of a lot of unnecessary things,…

Waiting

Nobody likes waiting – I certainly don’t. Waiting is something we all do on the daily. We have to wait while we cook, but we can never be certain of how good our dish will end up tasting. Some of us wait for the bus when using public transport, yet we never really know how…

Being Short

I’m short – standing at 5 ft. 2. To be honest, I always knew I was short but didn’t realize how short I really was until I went to university and realized that 90% of the people there were taller than me. It is seriously the worst when someone taller than me complains about how…

Today’s world, Women, and Education

Women’s rights is a big topic today and I, as a young woman, am very proud of how far women have come to this day as compared to previous generations due to their hard work and perseverance. I may not voice my opinion too often, but I am a big advocate when it comes to…

First Year

9 months ago, I feel like I spent most of my summer days contemplating how university was going to be. First year, for many young adults, is the first time they get to experience true freedom. Although there is a small peck of fear in one’s chest as they wonder how they’ll be able to…
