Recruitment Season

It never really crossed my mind that recruitment season for new graduate jobs began a whole year in advance. Obviously you can start you search when you actually graduate, but I’ve realized that most people try to start months before so that by the time they graduate they already have a job lined up. And […]

Back to School

At the time you are reading this, I will be sitting in a lecture hall waiting for my International Trade course to begin. Fun right? I expect the prof to be setting up, students to be walking in and me sitting there all alone. Because I’m the loner who no one speaks to and is […]

I am happy to say that I made it to Canada safely and that my flight was good. Unfortunately, I had an anxiety attack at the airport, in a public space and it did not go away very easily/at all. Anxiety may not be able to kill you, but it can definitely fuck with you. […]

Opening Up with Others

People in a meeting discussing something

I am a private person. I have a really hard time opening up to others, and letting them get to know me for me. And it usually takes me a while to be able to share my deepest darkest secrets. Not that I have any. So when I created this blog, I had absolutely no […]

Monthly Memories – July 2019

Printed photos on a map

Going to honest here, I got this idea from another blogger named Cass, from uniquelycass.com. I recently discovered her blog, read quite a bit of entries, particularly her monthly recaps and felt inspired to something similar. I recommend checking out her website. And since July just ended, its perfect timing. So here goes. Arristella launched. […]
