Everyone who has completed high school has taken the ‘What learning style am I?’ quiz. Generally, there are four types – Visual, Auditory, Read-Write and Kinesthetic. Most of us don’t think much of it at that time, but it is extremely important to understand your learning style because much of your successes or failures can be related to how you interpret and understand the world around you. And knowing your preferred learning style not only helps you in school, but in life, work and personal relationships – a lot of things are linked to how you perceive and understand information. Over the years, I have become more aware of how I best learn and often will ask for visual representation to help explain a concept because I rely on those visual aids or demonstrations to get that point across and understand what is in front of me.

I would say the majority of us have [often more than once] been told the following: cherish your youth and value this time in your life – it will go by fast. And once you graduate and enter the adult working world, you start to think that person knew what they were talking about. Once you move out and start paying your own bills, it dawns on you that life a student was definitely simpler with less financial responsibility (for the majority of students that is)… but certainly not as rewarding as adulthood.
Like so many of my friends, I am at the age where having a child is also commonly referred to as “hitting your prime” (in other words, you’ve had some time to find steady employment and save some cash, but you are still young enough to produce healthy kids and should be able to run after them). And although many of my friends are embracing motherhood and the child-rearing life (which I respect and admire), I’m not sure mommy life is for me.

My partner and I are coming up on our sixth-year anniversary and we are planning a buffet night in. Although this year will be spent at home indulging our taste buds with an extremely wide array of foods (a mash up of choices, mostly his preferences, that don’t necessarily go together, I might add), it is important to recognize that you don’t need to go out to enjoy each other’s company – you just need bonding time. I’ll outline a few things below that have worked for our relationship and keeps our bond strong.
Last weekend, I finally took my long overdue trip to the Elora Gorge. Although we didn’t go tubing, the area itself was full of life and we enjoyed a hike along the trails. We also went to see the “Kissing Bridge” not long ago, walking across and snapping a few photos. Aside from the day trips close to home, Ontario has so much to offer!
As many people around my age are aware, this week marks the 20th anniversary of the first booked published from the Harry Potter series. It may not be a big deal for some, but Harry Potter and his admirable friends have really set into the hearts of many children and adults (myself included). Although I wouldn’t call myself an “avid Harry Potter enthusiast”, I am definitely a fan and have thoroughly enjoyed the books and movies resulting from J.K. Rowling’s talented writing.
While some enjoy the comfort of silence, I am definitely not one of those people. Silence makes me uncomfortable to be honest. I continuously need music through-out my day to create flow and keep me trekking on with my tasks (and it helps to boost my mood and energy levels too!). Whether it’s at home, at work or on a plane headed somewhere, the tunes are no doubt on.
With the majority of the western world glued to their tech, I am seriously finding it hard to connect with others on a personal, human level. To clarify, I am not about to go on a rant about how much we use our devices – not at all. I more-so want to bring your attention back to those moments where many of us have gotten lost and have forgotten about connecting with another human being face-to-face. I am a 90’s baby and I too rely heavily on tech and spend hours per day connecting online or with my phone or computer for personal tasks, games, social media, music, etc. Enthralled by our gadgets and often losing track of time, it is hard to truly appreciate what should be a personal moment that deserves our full and undivided attention.
