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.

Day three of our London adventure, we were given an option to visit different places the city had to offer. The options included going to Abbey Road and 221B Baker Street, boarding the Belfast warship, or visiting Westminster Abbey and the scale heights of the Tower Bridge. My friend and I jumped on board to visit Westminster Abbey and the Tower Bridge. Continue reading “EXPLORING LONDON, ENGLAND”
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”
Travelling is what I like to call taking the scenic route through life. Filled with pleasant views, nice sceneries, and new experiences, it’s the path many of us should always take. I believe the purpose of life is more than just sitting at our nine to five job. From the rut of our profoundly busy life, travelling fills that empty void. A void that needs a little more than what we do on a daily basis.
Exploring new places, meeting new people, and trying new food is the scenic route through life. If you have ever driven through a scenic highway, you become so drawn to the beautiful scenery that you begin to reflect on how beautiful the world is. Parallel to that is travelling. As you travel and experience beautiful parts of our world, you begin to reflect on how wonderful life really is. You are experiencing things outside of your comfort zone, seeing beautiful places with your own eyes, and discovering yourself. You become infatuated with our world and fall deeply in love with your life. That right there, is the beauty of travelling and for that reason, I like to refer travelling the scenic route through life. Continue reading “TAKING THE SCENIC ROUTE THROUGH LIFE”
It’s often so easy in our culture and society to put up walls, to let ourselves harden in order to protect ourselves from the intensity of our day to day lives – Duncan Parviainen
From the moment we wake up to the time we come home from work, we are constantly on the go. Living in a fast-paced world, we can all agree that life is never on pause- not even for a second. Whether it be going to work, school, or traveling afar, we tend to build up stress and tension into our lives and too often, bring it home with us. On a personal level, I will admit, I accumulate a lot of stress and tension into my body every day. Living in a constant state of urgency, I tend to forget to relax and enjoy my life; thus always coming home and heading straight to bed. Continue reading “RESTORE, REFRESH, AND REJUVENATE”
Come May 2017, I will be embarking on a mission. A mission I’ve been longing to complete since ninth grade. A mission that will forever and I mean forever change my life. A mission to volunteer and dedicate not only my time, but my life to create change. A mission to empower youth across the globe. A mission to volunteer and help those who need it the most. A mission to give the same advantages I’ve received from the minute I was born. A mission to give back to my world. Continue reading “EMBARKING ON A MISSION TO AFRICA”
It took us about an hour to an hour and a half to get to East London. Before heading to our hotel in Heathrow, we made our way to Central London for dinner. Mesmerized by the buildings and lights, I was anxiously waiting to get off the bus and explore. London was definitely the most fanciest and cleanest city I’ve ever been too. Aside from my horrendous outfit choices in Grade 12, the luxury of the city made me feel like I wasn’t in place, let alone, afford to be in the city! Continue reading “LONDON, ENGLAND”
