Done with the Semester (almost!)

Although it's only about two months worth, it's pretty great that I've managed to survived this semester, especially a lot better compared with last year's. Granted, two months of teaching isn't really that long, but if you particularly have first-year university students, it can feel like it drags at times. Compared with last year's spring …

Why I’m Not “Queer Enough” (and that’s okay)

If you were to hear the word "gay," "lesbian," "bisexual," or "queer," then I can safely assume that you have presumptions about what a "typical insert-label here" looks and acts like. From the flamboyant gay queen to the masculine butch lesbian, we have stereotypes about certain people in the LGBTQ community. Of course, we can't …

5 Years on WordPress! (and reflections)

Greetings! As you can read from the post's title, today (December 20th) marks my five-year anniversary (or I should say "blogiversary") on WordPress!

To Live or Not to Live with Roommates… (my story)

...that's the question. From my personal experiences, I lived with roommates throughout my four years at university and then for just over a year this past year during my third (going into fourth) year in France. Due to these experiences, I've developed ideas about living together with people, especially those whom I didn't really know. …
