Do you believe in second chances?

I’d like to think that second chances exist, or at least, from my side of the story. Not sure what prompted me to speak about this topic but recently I’ve met up with a few friends and some nostalgic feelings came back. Not entirely sure what provoked these and if these are feelings of rekindling…

Exchange & Graduation

I am determined to go on an exchange. I am so determined for this. I don’t care if I’m already in my third year and doing an exchange in my 4th year might defer my graduation. I really don’t care. I think that prolonging my university years might actually be beneficial to me. Why rush…

Bittersweet College Life

As I sit here on this high table with a macbook pro that can be mistaken with any other student’s laptop here, typing furiously away at the screen, not knowing where I’m going with this, I begin to notice some things. Soulless students flipping through pages and pages of notes, a back scratch, a head…

A year in reflection (2012)

So I’ve decided to do a post like this after every birthday to basically summarize a compendium of thoughts, experiences, what have I learned, what have I done, what I probably shouldn’t have done, etc… Like a self-reflection/rants (those things that my mom used to tell me to do when I do something wrong). This…

For future references

My life consists of a lot of talking, a lot of mistakes, bad timing, silly adventures, epiphanies, and many more. But how can I keep a track of all that in order for my kids to get a better sense of who I was, or who I am. (That is, if I do end up…

Late night spiel on exams

Personally I think exams are a waste of time. Maybe this is the sick me talking a week before my giant aptitude test but exams, in my opinion, is a horrible evaluation of a person’s ability to succeed in life. Yes, with great exam marks, you are more prone to get into better graduate schools,…

Long overdue Thanksgiving meal

So being a student in a foreign city thousand of miles away from home, you don’t get to go back home very often, especially not for a 3 day weekend like Thanksgiving. So my friends and I set up a little Thanksgiving dinner for the ones who are stuck here for the weekend with no…

Are you a reason, a season, or a lifetime?

So today, I was chatting up with a close friend about some pretty personal stuff and she mentions this “Reason, season, lifetime” poem that I should probably read. As I was reading this, some people came to my mind, but it was actually very difficult to think of specific people for each category. What worried…

A Package of Love from Japan.

When in university, you realize how lonely you actually are and how you long for packages to be sent to you. Even the tiniest snail mail or even a credit card statement in the mailbox excites me. Recently, I’ve grown close to a friend from Japan and mentioned the lack of Japanese treats in Canada…

The First.

I’ve started many blogs before but always had a purpose for each. Then I just end up not finishing those or not updating because they’re always so specific to one thing. This is just going to be my personal blog, filled with joy (cough), sorrow, whatever artsy-fartsy shenanigans I throw onto the interweb. This is…
