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

Who are you? What are you made of? These questions may cause people to stop and think about their lives but more often than not they are brushed off.  Questions like these are difficult to think about because they bring one face to face with one’s own mistakes and failings.  They destroy the perfectly cultivated facade… Continue reading Remind Me Who I Am

Sunshine and Shadows

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

Stuck on Life

When everyone came back from Christmas break I felt a little lost and out of place. Everyone seemed to be solidifying their lives and then there was me. Exchange program applications were due in December and by January people began to discuss how different their lives might be next year. I’m staying in Ottawa next year. I felt… Continue reading Stuck on Life
