    My Courses For This Semester

    This semester I’m only taking history courses because I finished my electives last semester and I have to say I am really enjoying it. As most of you know my major is History and I am loving concentrating on it and learning all these amazing history courses. Here are the courses I’m taking this semester: The American Revolution- This course is kind of tied in with the course I took last semester on the American Enlightenment. As you guys know I’m really enjoying my American history courses because I had never done American history before university so it’s all new and exciting to me. I also like how it’s taught by…

    Courses I’m Taking This Semester

    History Courses Roman History- okay not going to lie this one isn’t super interesting but I still enjoy it to an extent. I really like learning about Roman history but I am more of a modern history kind of person so this is a little out of my area of interest. It also doesn’t help that most of the people in my seminar class are kind of unfriendly. History of Diaspora’s– This class is super interesting to me and I am so glad I took it. So far we have learnt a lot about Jewish diaspora communities and soon we’re going to learn about other diaspora communities. Since I am…

    Exams Are Upon Me

    It’s that time of the semester again folks where life revolves around coffee and studying and more coffee and more stuDYING… You guys might have noticed that I am not as active as I usually am on WordPress and that’s because my exams have started and obviously I’m spending most of my time studying. Luckily I have two take home exams so I only have to go for two of them but they’re both super early in the morning which is very annoying. Anyway in case I am less active for the next week or so and am not able to reply to your comments or post everyday it’s because…

    5 Cofacilitations And A Presentation

    So thankfully my semester is almost over which means I’m done with my cofacilitations and presentations. I have a really hard time with these as I’ve told you guys because I am one of those people that is just not great at speaking in public or to groups. So two of my cofacilitations I did on my own which I actually prefer because I’m kind of a perfectionist and like to be in control… I had to do the other three cofacilitations and the lecture presentation with other people and the majority of them went pretty well. One of the people I had to do the cofacilitation with turned out…

    Another Scary Experience!

    A lot of universities need students to do co-facilitation’s which is when you teach the seminar for one class. My university is one of them. I have five of those to do this semester and I just finished my first one yesterday and I thought I would tell you guys about how it went! Firstly, the seminar topic I was doing was about Kenya so I at least I knew what I was talking about and I didn’t have to do a ton of research on the topic. So it started with me having to explain the two articles which was alright because I had written notes on what I…

    My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

    So I had one of the worst days ever today. I woke up thinking I would finish my research paper and hand it in by five in the evening and do some revising and stuff but when I woke up all the work I had done was gone! So anyway I had to retype the whole thing by 6 because it was due by 7 and I still had to get it printed and take it to the drop box and stuff. I tried really hard to finish the whole thing on time but I was still late and got to the bus stop by about 7pm. I thought okay…

    My Scary Experience

    So today I had this presentation for my piracy class which was super scary! I really like the class but I just really hate presentations because I have anxiety as it is I don’t need it to be made worse with worrying about talking in front of a bunch of people. Also for some reason (probably because it’s such a fun class) everyone always shows up so there are at least like fifteen to twenty people there. And I am really not a fan of speaking in front of people especially if there are more then ten people. Plus, two of the people who were supposed to present with us…

    Life Updates!

    I know I haven’t been blogging much or keeping up to date with everyone else’s blog However, I thought I would update you with everything that’s going on right now (admittedly not a lot…) I have a bunch of assignments due soon (one tomorrow and 3 next week) and I have a midterm test next week for Sociology so I’ll mostly be revising this week which is very hard to do when it’s cold and snowing and all you want to do is curl up in bed and hibernate. I also tried out some vegan Indian food from Touch Of India this week which was really good! Touch of India…

    Dream Journal!

    So today in Psychology we were learning about sleep and dreams and talked about different dreams and how they can be interpreted and it remind me of High School because my friends and I used to discuss the dreams we had that night and we would try to analyse them. It was really a lot of fun! Coincidentally, just last week I had a really insightful dream that helped clear some things in my waking life and I remember thinking “sometimes I learn more in my dreams than when I’m awake”. Dreams have always fascinated me because I truly believe they have an important meaning behind them and listening to…
