2022’s Biggest Night for Music

2022’s Biggest Night for Music Posted on April 14, 2022 Photo by Grammy A few months ago, I wrote an article about the 64th Grammy Awards nominations. The star-studded list created lots of discussion for fans, and this past week, we got to see who took home a Grammy. On April 3, 2022, the annual award show took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Some of the biggest names in music were in attendance as they had their chance to shine through various performances throughout the night. In this article, I’ll focus on some of the […]

Karlie’s International Thriller Recommendations

Karlie’s International Thriller Recommendations Posted on April 14, 2022 I love the thriller genre. From action, psychological dramas, horror, and even romance, thriller is a transformative genre that can be difficult to define, but definitely easy to enjoy. Below I have compiled a very brief list of a few of my favourite international thriller movies that I would definitely recommend to others who are interested in watching movies from around the world. The list below is European/East-Asian centric, and I hope to continue to expand my catalogue over the summer.  Similarly to horror, thriller movies can contain topics and imagery […]

Things I Wished I Knew at the Beginning of my Degree

Things I Wished I Knew at the Beginning of my Degree Posted on April 13, 2022 I moved to Toronto nearly 5 years ago. I was 17, had only left my province a couple of times, and was absolutely terrified. Not only was I nervous to start university, but I was overwhelmed by the big city of Toronto and all of its beautiful chaos.  I’m now 22, and only a couple of months away from graduating. It’s been a long and difficult journey: after two years at X, I took some time off from my degree to travel and work […]

What Pixar’s Tuning Red Means to Me, a Chinese-Canadian Animation Fan Posted on April 9, 2022 What is more fun than having someone or something tell you about yourself? If you’re like me, you also enjoy taking personality tests and quizzes in your free time. And if you’re also like me, you have definitely been told that you are “such a Sagittarius”.

An extrovert? Maybe even an ambivert? Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator […]

How to Smile: In Different Media

How to Smile: In Different Media Posted on April 13, 2022 A few weeks ago I wrote a blog all about how to cry in different media for some much-needed mid-term catharsis. Seeing as we’re at the end of the semester now, it seems fitting to do the opposite so I thought it would be a good time for some light-hearted happy recommendations to take you into the summer.  Songs I Touch Myself Lime Cordiale Cover It’s impossible not to bop along to this song whenever you hear it. The original song is already quite fun but this cover just […]

Judging the Cover of My Books

Judging the Cover of My Books Posted on April 11, 2022 There is no one in the world that doesn’t judge a book by its cover. One of my fellow bloggers even wrote her blog on how to choose a book you may like by looking at its cover! When there are tons of books on the shelf to select from in a book store, the book cover or even its spine can help it catch your attention and lure you to take it off the shelf and all the way to your home sweet home. With that being said, […]

Navigating First Year, Both Online and In-Person

Navigating First Year, Both Online and In-Person Posted on April 12, 2022 With the school year finally wrapping up and final exams approaching, it’s the perfect time to reflect on how my school year went. It was an interesting one, to say the least – being online for all of the first semester, barely getting interaction with classmates or professors, and doing classes from the comfort of my own room. Definitely not what my fifteen-year-old self was expecting for my first year of university. First semester went well – I met some friends and was able to form connections with […]

Making the Most of Every Moment

Making the Most of Every Moment Posted on April 11, 2022 If anything, the pandemic showed us that we shouldn’t take things for granted because everything can change in an instant without warning. Over the last two years, I think a lot of young people feel like they lost valuable time while they were in lockdown – I feel the same way. But this feeling of lost time has made me more appreciative of every moment and has inspired me to make the most of these moments, even the little ones.  Take Pictures/Videos of Everything Recently, I have started taking […]

Upcoming Book to Screen Adaptations.

Upcoming Book to Screen Adaptations. Posted on April 11, 2022 These past few years in film and television we have seen an abundance of adaptations hit movie theaters and streaming sites alike. From video game adaptations such as Uncharted, to novel adaptations such as Normal People or Dune. There seems to have been a rise in interest for adapted stories. While I would argue that not all adaptations are for the stories’ best interest, it is hard to deny the intrigue surrounding how filmmakers take the words of others and turn them into a visual medium. Taking a story that […]
