Dear Twenty Year Old Me: The Letter

There is so much that I never thought I was capable of until now. Four weeks ago I turned twenty years old and at the sound of my alarm that morning I reached for my ‘Dear Twenty Year Old Me’ letter which I had been saving since I was eleven years old.  When I was eleven… Continue reading Dear Twenty Year Old Me: The Letter

Cosplaying as a One Woman Army: I Know My Value Part 2

I’ve been ruminating about this post since I wrote part one almost a month ago.  This piece has been written and rewritten more often than I would like to admit.  Everything I produced just did not seem to hit the mark in terms of what I wanted to express.

Cosplaying as a One Woman Army: Black Widow Edition Part 1

I have been a fan for as long as I can remember.  No, I am not a folded sheet of paper that can be moved back and forth to produce small breezes nor am I am electronic construction whose blades spin quickly to help a flow of cool air manifest in a room.  I am a fan… Continue reading Cosplaying as a One Woman Army: Black Widow Edition Part 1

Coming Home

The past three weeks have been something, something special. The day after Thanksgiving my parents left for Hawaii – they went on vacation to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary, and I stayed home.

As CBC said earlier this evening, “Canada will be different after today.” My country has changed. My city has changed. I’ve changed. This morning at 10:00am I was in class, discussing Aristotle. To be more specific I was listening to my professor engage in an enlightening lecture about Aristotle and his relation to Plato.  At… Continue reading #OttawaStrong

Tomorrow

Tomorrow; it’s a new year – a new academic year to be specific.  Tomorrow morning I will awake at 6:33 am, switch off my alarm and turn to face my first day as a second year Humanities student at Carleton University. I cannot believe that this is actually happening.  It’s fascinating how time seems to speed… Continue reading Tomorrow
