Little girl, who do you think you are?

On February 10, 2017, I prepared to present at my first official academic colloquium. Sure, it was a small event at my home institution of Carleton University but to me it was a big deal. It was a chance for me to share my work with my academic peers and my professors in an environment… Continue reading Little girl, who do you think you are?

Embracing 2017: Waving Through a Window

Have you ever waited at a window for someone to appear? Sometimes life feels like that. It’s odd, as graduation approaches I figured that my colleagues and I would get closer. I thought we’d huddle together in the face of the future but we haven’t and surprisingly, that’s okay by me. I tend to not… Continue reading Embracing 2017: Waving Through a Window

Remind Me Who I Am

The Danger of Dante

It is now March and the days are swiftly spinning away from me.  This next month is chock full of activities, from formals to sorority events to several late night paper writing sessions that have yet to come and I am unsure of how to react.  Part of me feels compelled to pity myself and my fellow… Continue reading The Danger of Dante

Doubt

Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you know in your heart of hearts, doubt still finds a way to creep into your castle of strength and creativity.  You are always your harshest critic.  I know this all too well. Tonight had me questioning my ability to succeed in the English portion of my double major and though… Continue reading Doubt
