Quaranthings

April 26, 2020

  Hanging around home and everythng being shut down for the past while (month-ish) has been…well lots of things. Regardless of the feelings everyone has had, it has given many people a new mental space, time to slow down (even if you’re still grinding at home) and time to reflect. Here’s what I’ve learned while self quarantining.  Priorities:             Where both my priorities…

2019

December 31, 2019

  As the year wraps up, we all start reflecting, reliving, criticizing or boasting about the past 365 days. In retrospect, it’s just a length of time we use to measure everything that has or hasn’t been accomplished within that window. Although resolutions aren’t a bad thing, I believe goals should be ongoing and not produced due to a specific timeline. I’d like to share what 2019 has…

Social Survey: What Makes You Happy?

October 23, 2019

What makes you happy? Pretty simple question right? If you’ve spent time with me a lot a couple months ago (yes I’ve procrastinated this post!), you’ve heard that question a lot.  Most of my life I have been pretty introverted. What I have realized from this, is that it builds a barrier from meeting lots of people, making connections and indulging in bounteous, diverse conversations. Especially being a…

Driving Lesson 4 & 5

March 1, 2017

A thousand hellos to everyone! This is probably going to be my second to last driving lesson post as it’s starting to be wrapped up. I decided to throw these two lessons together because they both include some exciting new things. Since I wasn’t able to write down every single detail from both these lessons, I’ve decided that I’ll give you some of the key points from my…

A little piece of my writing (sonnet style)

March 30, 2016

For the past few months, I’ve been learning about Shakespearean sonnets in English class. These type of sonnets aren’t my personal favorite, but after writing one myself I have a better understanding for it. In order to get a just of how these sonnets are written here are a few guidelines that are followed: 14 lines 3 quatrains  & a couplet at the end iambic pentameter (every syllable has repeated stress…

7 Emotional Movies (must watch!)

March 21, 2016

Thought I’d share some of my personal favourite movies that are both cute, sad or plain out heart wrenching.   1.  Big Daddy If you’re looking for a movie with both a super cute kid and super funny guy, this is the one. Watch Sonny (Adam Sandler) raise a child (Sprouse twins!) in an adult environment that’s both sentimental and hilarious. This movie perhaps pulled me in due…

Five Things That Make Me Happy :)

March 9, 2016

Over the past few weeks, I’ve got the opportunity to socialize with so many amazing young (teenage) bloggers! One of them is Brittany who I’ve actually been communicating with for quite some time now. She’s a really good internet friend, I think that’s the terminology??!! She’s such a talented blogger and always has polished posts up on her blog! She is the owner of Brittany Fenton Blogspot. We…

Driving Lesson 2 & 3

February 20, 2016

Lesson 2? Your thoughts perhaps may consist of… is she actually writing about all eight lessons? Well… yes! But today I thought I’d sum up lesson 2 and 3 together so my blog doesn’t start to look as if I’m a mechanic. Catch my drift? *My new saying of the month?* As promised, many of the habits were reiterated during the second lesson. This time I was instructed…

Driving Lesson 1

January 27, 2016

As per normal, the day came for my first lesson and I second guessed myself thinking that I had got the days mixed up. Mid-afternoon I met my instructor and went over the basics with him. Since they have absolutely no history with whoever is driving, no one’s allowed to drive from the initial location. Ok yes obviously. But still, I thought I’d state the obvious. On the…

Importance of Family & Friends

December 5, 2015

Family. A sentimental word with a definition as simple as, “a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household”. However, family is so much more than that. It’s a tight bond between those who are related and love each other. This holiday season, I encourage you to spend lots of time with your family (and friends) and to share the love. Within some situations it…

My Favorite Reads (from the past year)

August 13, 2014

Throughout time, there have been so many great novels and series written for all types of people. Not only do the readers’ judgments on books differ but so do the ideas of the authors. Not only does that give us a wide variety to choose from, but many different creative minds to listen to. At the beginning of the summer, I was given a stack of books to…
