Aren’t We All So Judgy

Two years ago one of my greatest fear was being judged by others. I would wake up every single day in hopes that throughout my day, no one misinterprets my intentions, judge me based on what rumours they hear about me or my shortcomings. I believe I speak for the masses when I say that…

Judgment on others a good thing?

Everywhere in mainstream media, there is some sort of activism being applied regarding the acceptance of others’ differences. But most importantly, the main motto of the current world that we live in is DON’T JUDGE OTHERS or in other words, ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. Just like many of you, I’ve heard this…

Judgment on Decision Making

Pizza with pineapple or without pineapple? Black or white? Life or death? When it comes judgement many of us think about judging people or our surroundings, usually neglecting decision as a form of judgement. What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of the word decisions? I know for me I…

Expectations. This time, far from reality

I am guilty. Guilty of expectations. I devour myself with expectations of who I am, who I could have been, and who I want to be. Expectations of how I should behave in front of my friends and how I should behave in front of my teachers. The abundance of expectations that I have in…

Let’s NOt BurnOut!

My fellow peers, the time has come once again. The time of cries, lack of sleep, exhaustion, frustration and pretty much anger. For those of you who are younger – or just don’t attend this school – you might be feeling very lost with what I am talking about; but I promise, you’ll absolutely relate…

Motivation’s Fault

I don’t know about you, but I had a very long list of things that I wanted to do during the break. From strategies of studying to even ways of improving my writing – I had all the fun and exciting activities that anyone would want to experience during their break. I was motivated to…

Curiosity Killed The Cat

Do aliens exist? Curious about where you’re gonna end up in life, with our – sometimes – lack of common sense?? Did that famous astronaut really land on the moon? Yeah well, our curiosity is endless; especially as teens, we sometimes find ourselves wondering about the most random things that just pop up in our…

Last Minute People… I’m one of them

One of the issues that we go through as students – besides stressing over our summative – is procrastination. We get home after a long and stressful day at a school, we tell ourselves “I’ve got tons of homework and reviews to do, when I get home It’ll be the first thing that I do”….

Oh man! I missed my deadline!

It’s a fact. Everyone during the past few weeks has been stressed because of the summative deadlines. From personal project for G10s to SNR for G9s. I don’t know about you, but for me, I’ve never been this stressed and exhausted in my entire life. I’m sure we can all agree that we have skipped…

Non – Verbal Communication

Have you ever had those moments where you and your friends stare at each other from across the room? And just by looking at each other, you can tell what the other person is trying to say, or in some cases, what they think. Well, experts say that most of our communication is done non…
