Hard Work

What people need to remember, as they often forget, is that hard work is inevitably going to be hard. The concept or idea of hard work often sounds profiting, or even rewarding, but a lot of the time it isn’t. Hard work does not always mean rewards right away or ever. Hard work is just part of the job and part of life. Which sounds discouraging I know, but you need to keep in mind that its the powering through of hard work, and the satisfaction we get down the life is what makes it all worthwhile. After pushing through endlessly and … Continue reading Hard Work

Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! It is Thanksgiving in Canada today, which means turkey, too much food and giving thanks and being grateful. The thing I love about Thanksgiving is that it’s not necessarily a religious holiday, and anyone who wants too can celebrate it! Giving thanks is something that can transcend all these categories we put ourselves in. It does not matter where you are, or who you are, if you would like to get together with someone, whether that be family, friends, or neighbors, to give thanks and have a meal then you easily can. So today, … Continue reading Thanksgiving

Music

I find that music is such a personal and specific preference, catered to everyone individually. Whenever someone asks me what my favourite type of music is, I have such a hard time answering, simply because I never actually fell into one specific type of music. If I like a song that I hear, from whichever genre, then I like it. As I said,  music is very personal, I decided to share the 5 songs currently stuck in my head, in hopes that this lets you all get to know me a bit better! Whistle (While You Work It)- Katy Tiz … Continue reading Music

Happiness– Spring Your Life

For today’s Spring Your Life series, we are going to talk about happiness! I had an entire post written about happiness, but it did not seem genuine. Lately, I’ve been feeling nostalgic, happy and excited, so I thought what better time to write about happiness! Yesterday, I ran into an old math teacher of mine. I despise math class or anything to do with math, but honestly, he is probably one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. Around this time of year, towards the end of the semester, a lot of people are asking what’s next in … Continue reading Happiness– Spring Your Life

Rejection

Lately, I have been rejected from things left, right and center. It just a time in my life when I’m applying for jobs, and universities and project proposals in school. Handling rejection is no walk in the park, and the worst part is when it becomes so familiar, that it actually scares you. But, if rejection has taught me anything, it is that the plan we once thought was perfect changes, as we change. Rejection might feel like you’re just having doors being shut in your face constantly, but really it’s just trying to show you a door you always … Continue reading Rejection
