Kartiki on break

Is it me or did the break seem very short? It seemed like only yesterday when I went through a tortuous 35-hour flight to India before I had to do it again to come back to Waterloo. So, I made sure I used the 22 days of holidays that I got to the fullest extent!

Ekin in winter

Hello all, it’s Ekin ☺

I hope everyone had a good start to 2019. Did you make a New Year resolution list? ☺ Every year just before New Year's Eve, I create my to-do list for the upcoming year because I love to start January with a fresh mind. I cannot say I follow these lists perfectly (who does?), but it is always fun to see what I achieved and what I couldn’t at the end of the year.

I don't know about you but I have had a fantastic experience living on campus for my first year. Can you believe it will be over in a few short months? As we got to the midway point of the academic year, I realized that I need to start thinking about where I was going to live in second year. Maybe you're thinking the same thing.
