#OttawaStrong

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

It’s October

It’s October; I cannot believe it.  Granted it’s only the third today of the month but still, a whole four weeks have passed by and so much has happened.  I’m quite sure that I’ve reevaluated my life a hundred times over since the last time I wrote a blog post; however, I will not bore… Continue reading It’s October

What A Crime…

“Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.” -George Bernard Shaw Shaw is incorrect; at least by my standards.  Youth is beautiful but terrible too – the only ones who are capable of facing it are the young.  Each age has its own trials and tribulations but youth is by far one… Continue reading What A Crime…

Dear Twenty Year Old Me: Hit the Pavement

I’ve lived in Ottawa my entire life.  I should know this town like the back of my hand, should being the operative word in this sentence.  The thing is I don’t know Ottawa that well, but I want to. Ottawa is almost like my older sibling that has always been there but only on the fringes of my… Continue reading Dear Twenty Year Old Me: Hit the Pavement
