Sisters, sisters

I’ll be straight with you all—I didn’t want to go to the same post-secondary school as my sister, who is just one year younger. I mean, wasn’t spending 4 years in the same high school enough? But since she started at UBC, my sister and I have become a lot closer. We actually agree on things now. 

Which begs the question: is it because we are older, or because of the higher education?

The one thing we agree on the most is that she’s cool and I’m a dork who spends too much time on the internet.

In any case, I’m glad we’re both going to UBC right now, even if it means that we always get asked if we commute together.

Git ‘er done!


First blog post of 2014, tah-dah.

I was going to blog about the SLC, but that didn’t happen, obviously. I mean, I could write a very very late summary of my overwhelmingly awesome experience at this year’s Conference, but I’m not. Because that would just look bad, and y’all are over it already.

So with this blog post, I am going to absolve myself of all the guilt that I’ve been holding onto for the past 3 weeks for not doing what I was supposed to do. It’s been those shameful feelings that have stopped me from creating other (perhaps) wonderful things.

No, seriously, I got some ambitious ideas going on.

Idea Board

Okay, to be honest I have a lot of really silly tumblr text posts instead of ideas. But they cheer me up, so I’m keeping ’em!

In summary: I’ve been holding back on you guys. And since that’s really not what the SLC’s all about, I’m gonna throw myself back into blogging this term.

Internet Savvy: Tumblr + UBC

As an (sort of, kind of) avid blogger, I’m very familiar with Tumblr, which is part blogging platform, part social media platform, and generally pretty awesome. Thus, I have compiled a list of UBC and Tumblr things! Huffah for everybody!

What We Should Call UBC

Hands down, this is the funniest inspired-by-UBC blog out there. It’s a reaction gif blog that speaks for basically every UBC student. It really encapsulates all your feelings about everything that happens on campus! And the student behind the blog is like, one of the biggest mysteries on campus. Ah-nah-nee-mussss.

Life as a UBC Student

This Tumblr blog is run by Anna, a third-year biology major. She’s really, really good with giving academic advice, especially about enrolling in sciences. Also, she’s super duper nice!

The #UBC tag

It’s a bit hit-and-miss, but generally you can find a lot of other Tumblr users getting geared up about going to UBC this time of year. Excitement and feelings and things, yaaaaaay.

Happy tumbling!


100 posts later…


If the title didn’t give it away, I’m announcing that I’ve written 100 blog posts!  Granted, not all of them were written written, but whatever. What I really mean to say now is that though now is not the time to get sentimental, I’ve learned a lot while writing for Blog Squad over the past 7 months.

For instance, I’ve learned that people like reading about rants. Especially rants about controversial topics like sexism.

They also like to look at pictures. Pictures are good. Pictures of people doing dumb things, even better.

The most important thing I’ve learned, though, is that I like blogging. I like putting out content and making people laugh or cringe or even think. It’s something that gives me a good feeling (dat surge of dopamine, man).

So here’s three cheers for blogging! Hip, hip, hurrah!

PS. You ain’t seen the last of the mushy stuff yet 😉



No I’m just kidding.  I didn’t actually do that out loud.

Tonight was definitely the highlight of my week/weekend!  After all, where else am I allowed to belt out my favourite songs? The best part of it was that Tegan and Sara played never-before-heard songs from their upcoming album! I liked them very much.

Now wish me luck in catching up with all the homework I pushed aside. Procrastinating and cramming is not and should not be condoned here.
