2015 | Autumn Favourites


I'm nearly halfway through my 16th year as a student, which means that for the past 16 years autumn has felt more like the advent of a new year than January ever does, with the start of a new school year and renewed season of busyness. Arguably my favourite part of autumn - aside from the cooler weather - is the return of fall television. I have been very happy with both the new shows that have started this year and the returning seasons of old shows, along with a few other miscellaneous finds.

10 While 20


I (finally) turned 21 last week, a day which kickstarted a weekend full of drinks and fun downtown with friends and ended with a music festival (post coming later this week!). In the midst of the revelry I had some time to reflect on what the last year has brought me, and I thought I'd share 10 things I learned and realised while I was 20.

2015 | Book Challenge No.5

With the semester picking up and midterms ever present in my mind, reading has taken a back seat in my life currently. But I'm now halfway through my book challenge; it took 3.5 months to read the first 25 books, and I'm confident with the upcoming holiday breaks I can knock out the next 25 before the end of the year - thankfully I'm a quick reader.

21. A book you started but never finished - Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay
I finally finished Bad Feminist after starting and stopping three times, due to me always thinking I'll devote more time to reading than I actually do. Written in much the same style as celebrity memoirs, Bad Feminist is a series of essays focusing on Gay's own experiences as a woman of colour and how her background shapes how she views modern feminism and culture. It's a sharp yet humourous look at how culture shapes the way people behave and how we could all stand to be better.
