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.

Commuting can suck sometimes. But it doesn't always have to! Click through to find out about 9 ways you can rock your 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 finals are approaching (5 weeks left y’all!), that means that we’re soon going to find ourselves buried in papers to hand in and exams to study for.

Now, if you’re a freshman, you’ve probably heard plenty of things about finals. They might even scare you. Trust me, finals are hard. But it’s also totally doable. (I mean, every college student survive them. We might not always do great, but we do well enough to pass.)

If you’re a upperclassman, you know the drill: study, complete assignment, study, eat, study, study, sleep, repeat.

No matter what, I think that one of the reasons why a lot of people are struggling with finals is because they don’t know how to study for a college exam. I know you’re probably thinking, what? But trust me, I know people who had never studied a day in their life before they got to college. So wouldn’t it be normal for those people to have absolutely no idea what they’re doing? If that’s your case, don’t worry! I’m going to share my secrets on how to study for your college exams… and how to ace them!

After reading a post by Sarah from Sarah in the Six about the Italian school system, I thought it would be a great idea to finally demystify the Quebec school system for you! Studying in Quebec is completely different from studying in the rest of Canada. It’s the only school system like that in the entire world (or, at least, that I know of).

I’ve mentioned CEGEP a couple of times on my blog and it always seems to surprise some college bloggers when I tell them that I’m a sophomore at university and that I’m 21 years old. But trust me, it makes total sense. So whether you want to study abroad in Quebec or if you’re just curious about how the school system works here, this post is for you!  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.

My 21st birthday is coming up! Here are 21 things I've learned in 21 years. View Post
