Saturday, January 21, 2017 will be a day I will never forget. A day that will forever live in my memory and define me as the woman I am today. On the morning of January 21, 2017, marchers gathered in Downtown Chicago at East Jackson Boulevard and South Lake Shore Drive, with a mission to make their voices heard and to support one another in protecting and furthering women’s rights and civil liberties.

Hey loves! I know it has been a while since I’ve posted something and yes, there are no more excuses for my absence, but I am back with new and exciting posts! Before I begin, I want to welcome all of my wonderful followers and readers to the New Year! I also want to give a huge thank-you to all of you for making my blogging experience an amazing one because without you guys, I would not have gone any further in the blogging world, so thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! In this post, I wanted to share a recap of my Chicago trip I recently took this past weekend! Continue reading “CHICAGO, ILLINOIS PART ONE”
Sleep during the night was quite impossible. Being in such a beautiful town, I could not wait to explore Tobermory even more. The intense feeling of wanting to be out there exploring, made me feel restless during the night. I was craving for more adventures thus could not wait to begin the next day.
We woke up around four-in-the-morning, as per usual, got ready, and began our drive into Wiarton, once again. As the closest Tim Horton’s was located in the small town, we decided to grab our breakfast on-the-go before making our way up to Cyprus Lake. (Yes, us Canadians need our Timmie’s in the morning!) Since we were not able to enter the park the previous day, we decided to leave earlier to get a parking spot before it filled up. Continue reading “TOBERMORY, ONTARIO PART TWO”
Before I begin my recap, I want to apologize for the absence on my blog. I try my best to update as much as I can but with work and school coming up, I feel like my days are getting shorter and school is approaching faster than I expected. With that, I have a little exciting news to share with all of you darling readers! First, I surpassed my 50 followers milestone on WordPress which does not seem like a big deal, I know, but having started this blog last year with the mindset that I was going to fail as a blogger, this is a tiny celebratory moment for me! Second, I was offered a Contributing Position which I’m a little nervous and excited about, but I will go into more details in a separate post. Anyhow, since my work schedule is a little more flexible now, I finally have time to update my blog! Yay! So without further ado, here is my recap on Tobermory, Ontario. Continue reading “TOBERMORY, ONTARIO PART ONE”
Let me just start by saying that Chicago was a very clean and beautiful city- minus the fact that it was very windy. When the school band and I first arrived, I was drawn to the huge buildings and the architect. I love visiting big cities, especially ones that have different architectural buildings.
We started our Chicago journey at our first stop; The National Field Museum. We got in line, went through security, and waited around ten minutes before entering. The group was divided into chaperone groups, but seeing as my friends and I were in grade 12, we were able to branch off on our own. The museum focused on our ancestors and included a lot of neat things from extinct animals to human evolution. It was a self-tour for 90 minutes so we could explore the museum at our own pace. The very first thing I saw was Sue the Tyrannosaurus Rex. If you don’t know Sue, she is one of the largest, most extensive, well-preserved T-Rex ever found. After selfies, we made our way to the rooms to begin our tour. Of course, I wanted to go to the Asian, Tahitian, and African exhibit so I rushed viewing the extinct animals and listening to the audio. To conclude my first stop, I learned a lot from the Field Museum and, to be honest, I felt like I was more on an Anthropology trip instead of a band trip.
I remember watching Bride Wars starring the talented Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson and telling myself that one day, just one day I would find myself walking the streets of New York. I would re-watch the movie over and over again, admiring the beautiful city on my little widescreen television, but I knew my heart I had to be there. Aside from having a dream wedding at the Plaza Hotel or going for a run in Central Park, as a little girl, I have always been captivated on visiting the Big Apple. From watching a ton of movies that took place in New York, I was inspired, captivated, and dreamed of being there- perhaps in my twenties. Little did I know, it would be at the age of sixteen.

I fell in love with Boston, so hopefully, I’ll be here for a long time – Johnny Damon
Back in ninth grade, I had an opportunity to travel to Boston for a band trip during the month of April of 2011. I cannot recall a day by day basis, as it has almost been seven years but I still do have some vivid memories. Let me begin by telling you that this was my first trip alone without my parents. It was exciting and scary at the same time, but I knew it was going to be the trip that will forever be integral. Continue reading “BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS”
Toronto. 416. The 6. The city that never sleeps and home of the 6 God, Drake. Although I only live four hours away, (three and a half if you go a buck nineteen), Toronto still puts me in awe every time I visit. Sometimes I wish my mom agreed to move back to Toronto with my dad, but four hours away doesn’t hurt (actually sometimes it does). Anyway, through the hustle and bustle of the busy city, there are countless of things to do, so in this post, I will be sharing with you an insider’s guide to Toronto. Psst…you won’t be disappointed.

And then I realized, travelling is the best way to learn – Anonymous
During high school, I had an opportunity to go on amazing trips that have a lasting impact on my life. Nothing can replace those unique experiences, especially those that left an imprint in my heart. My high school travels have really helped me decide what I wanted in life. Travelling independently, starting in grade nine, gave me a platform to diversify my experiences. Every city, country, and restaurant that I’ve visited gave me that opportunity to experience something different. With that being said, I was able to discover myself, my purpose, my true desires, and potentials earlier on. Continue reading “INSIDER’S GUIDE ON HIGH SCHOOL TRAVELS”
