I don’t know about you, but Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I simply love the festive ambiance and the thrill that comes before the 25th of December. As a child, Christmas used to be a big deal back at home. My parents decorated the house, we baked cookies, we decorated the tree, and I simply had a blast preparing for Christmas. Nowadays, things are calmer. We still decorate, but the ambiance is simply not the same. Now everyone is under stress because we need to buy the perfect gift for one another, I have to undergo finals, and it tends to get pretty busy at work. I have to find other ways to get into the Christmas spirit. One of my favorite ways to do is by watching Christmas movies! So today I lined up my 25 favorite Christmas movies that will put you in the Christmas mood, no doubt!
As someone who goes to university close to home, I am not living in the dorms. Actually, in Quebec, it’s common practice for university students to live in apartments off-campus. You know what that means? That means that we have to find other ways to get ourselves on campus. Whether it is on foot, by car, by public transportation or by bike, most college students here have to commute.
I’ve been taking the bus to get to school for over 8 years. Right now, to get to university, it takes me about 25 minutes, which means that by the end of the day, I’ll have wasted at least an hour every day on public transportation. As time flew, I’ve discovered a few tips to make commuting suck less and to actually enjoy my time on the bus. View Post
As some of you may know, my birthday is coming up soon (November 9th y’all!). At first, I didn’t think I would be marking the occasion, especially not here on the blog, because I didn’t think it was relevant, but then I realized that I was about to hit a pretty important number. Turning 21 is no big deal here in Quebec, but I’m finally going to be legal in the United States as well! Then, I realized that I had to do something to celebrate it here. I’ve seen a lot of these “__ things I’ve learned in __ years” all over the Internet, so I thought I would give this thing a try.
It’s a well-known fact that I’m a TV junkie. During high season (aka fall and winter), I can watch up to 12 TV shows a week! So trust me when I say I know my stuff. Who do you think my friends and family turn to when they need a show to binge? ME.
I wrote a Netflix recommendation post before, as well as a few TV-related blog posts, and since it’s been a while since I’ve last written one, I thought now would be the perfect time to write another edition! With fall on its way, you’re more than likely to want to snuggle up and watch something on Netflix. So I gathered up my favorite movies and TV shows of the moment so you have plenty to choose from!
In college, being a morning person doesn’t seem to be the trend. How many time have I heard that this person stayed up until 2 AM to finish this paper, that this one stayed up all night to study for a test, or that this other one stayed up late to watch Netflix?
I used to be like that too. I thought that going to sleep early and waking up early was “not cool”. Was I really living the real college experience if I didn’t go to sleep at 3 AM at least once a week?
And I used to think of myself as a night owl too. But, quickly, I realized that being a morning person rocks! Here are my reasons to become a morning person.
