Six Years of Ottawa ComicCon: Stay Shiny Part 1

The fan life is the good life. This past weekend brought with it Ottawa ComicCon for the sixth year in a row and I once again turned up in true fangirl style – that is to say, in cosplay. Over the years I have catalogued my cosplays in blog posts to give myself a chance… Continue reading Six Years of Ottawa ComicCon: Stay Shiny Part 1

So, What’s Next?

Maybe I don’t want to be ready yet. Maybe I don’t want to say goodbye. Well, life is not fair and this blog post is long overdue.

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

The Struggle Is Real

As much as I try to be a purist in terms of using words and phrases that would actually fit into an academic essay I find myself falling prey to the cultural revolution that is internet slang.  I no longer cringe much when I hear people yell out the words, “That is cray-cray,” nor do… Continue reading The Struggle Is Real
