I’ve seen so many playlists posts in the blogosphere lately, it made me want to write my own post! It’s been a while since I shared a playlist post, and I’ve been listening to some amazing tunes lately, so I thought I could share my current playlist with you!
I don’t know about you, but with the beautiful, warm weather and the promise of summer arriving soon, I cannot help but have that reflect in what I listen to. Therefore, the music that’s been playing on my iPod lately is more upbeat and fun. Definitely something you could dance to! I tend to listen to more pop songs in the summer
(even though I basically listen to pop all year long), so be warned! View Post
As I mentioned, my blogiversary was pretty recently. But, there’s something I have to admit: I’m not really sure when my blogiversary is. Sure, I know the date I created my blog (and WordPress likes to remind me), but I don’t know if I should count it from the moment I created my blog.
Let me explain.
My first post went live more than a month after I created my blog (June 2nd). Then, radio silence. I started taking blogging seriously only in August – three months after I created my blog!
So, where should I start counting? Back in April when I created my blog? In June when my first post was posted? Or in August when I finally took blogging seriously?
Anyways, as it happens, this blog post happens to celebrate not only one but two milestones! Not only is it posted a year after my first post went live, but it’s also my 50th blog post!
To celebrate, I decided to share my ten best blog posts. If you’re new here (hello!), it might direct you to some interesting resources; and if you’ve been here for a while, it might make you rediscover some old posts of mine!
From one introvert to another: I know what it’s like to struggle to break out of your comfort zone and meet new people.
I know what it’s like to move away to college and desperately want to find “your people” but not know where or how to go about it.
I also know the steps that are necessary to take in order to push past your insecurities and find those life-long friendships and new opportunities.
I know because I was forced to learn and take those steps.
They were baby steps, yes. But for me, mentally they were huge hurdles I needed to overcome.
During college, I learned something valuable that goes against what popular culture often tells you about your time at university.
It’s not so much about “reinventing” or “finding” yourself. Your personality isn’t necessarily going to change at this point; you’re you, and there isn’t a reason to go altering the very fundamentals of who you are.
It’s more about realizing what has and has not worked for you in the past and making a promise to yourself that you’ll try to do better.
Once I realized this, I made a decision. I was going to make note of past behavior that got me nowhere…
…and I wasn’t going to do it again at college. View Post
If you follow me on Insta, you probably know that I went to see Justin Bieber in Montreal last Monday (May 16th). I also mentioned it in one of my posts before.
I may not be Justin’s biggest fan, but I absolutely love his music. I have been to his Believe Tour back in 2012, and it was one of the best experiences of my life!
Weirdly enough, while I wanted to see him live, I wasn’t that excited the weeks before the concert – not as much as I was back in 2012. Maybe it had to do with the fact that Justin has changed a lot since Believe came out,
and not for the better. I don’t know. View Post
Writing an assignment is a lot of work. Not only do you need to do your research and before you start writing, but you also need to write the damn thing. When you’re finally done, you just want to print it or send it off to your teacher, and not think about it anymore.
Ever felt this way?
But most students forget that writing is just part of the process. Revision is just as important as writing the paper.
You need not only to revise your content, but you also have to look out for grammar, vocabulary, or punctuation mistakes.
In my faculty, you can lose up to 30% of your grade for language mistakes!
Thankfully, I have always been good with that sort of thing (and I have grammar and writing classes to help me with that).
So today, I decided not only to share my tips to hand in the best paper ever, but I’m also sharing a wonderful tool that can help you ace your assignments!
