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!
My love for Disney goes waaaay back. My childhood consisted of watching (and rewatching!) Disney movies over and over again. Most of my memories of that time are related to these stories! So you can imagine how excited I was when I found out that there was a book tag about Disney princesses! I stumbled on it while reading Misfit Alexa’s blog and thought I would give it a try.

People are always surprised when I tell them I work at a library. They always tell me “Oh, that’s cool! But… what do you do?”
(or they really judge me and think I’m a total loser haha) I’ve been working at my local library for the last two summers, and this summer is going to be my third in a row! I’ve also been hired as a part-time Library Assistant during the year.
Today, I thought I would finally demystify my job as a Library Assistant!
I tried my best to describe things as accurately as possible, but since I work in a French-speaking library and don’t know much of the library vocabulary in English, please excuse any inaccuracy. I also have to mention that I don’t have that many pictures of the library itself, since it’s forbidden to take pictures inside. View Post
