Mexico Has Hope

Mexico. Has. Hope.   Holy s***.   After so many years of oppression and violence, Mexico has a sliver of a ray of hope. IN THEIR HANDS. The candidate of choice may actually be chosen, and with the person, a change in regime will take place.   For too many years to count, Mexico has been under a dictatorship. With the pretext of a free democracy, the political party PRI has held an iron hold on Mexican freedom. This regimen changed when the political party PAN came into power for…

Sweet Mango Pie

Swimming in purple water makes me giddy The hippos laugh as i giggle and scream Posteriously producing bubbles that froth and foam Start spinning up around my head Its sweet perfume intoxicates me so As I splish and splash on the hippos back My thoughts turn to gumdrops and sweet mango pie Made from baboons with big yellow eyes As i turn to my left i see a crocodile there Holding a mirror and brushing his hair And since he was busy i looked at a snail And thought it…

Alone, Free & Safe

If I can stay here forever. Months and years passed and nothing has changed. I met a lot of people and tried to find in them that missing part of me.

I still find peace in my loneliness and nothing else but my loneliness. Too many voices around me, warm hearts and people who love me. But I love them…

Happy Strolls Around Vanier

As an alumna of Vanier, it is my pleasure to contribute to the final issue of the Insider this semester with my reflection on my last visits to my alma mater. During this period of waiting for the arrival of a dear one to come to my side, I have been volunteering every morning at the West Montreal Rehabilitation Centre (WMRC) on the 1st floor in the A-Building. Old memories of Ashley and I come across my mind as I step into the workshop every morning, at 9 o’clock sharp,…

Five Finals Tips

Failing a test doesn’t make you a failure. Don’t let a failing mark define who you are. Some goals are just harder to achieve than others, but that doesn’t make you any less capable of accomplishing them. Brush yourself off and try again. You may have lost this round, but at least you’ve gained experience. SLEEP, PLEASE. Getting a proper amount of sleep improves memory retention. Those all-nighters may not be as rewarding as you may think. They can do more harm than good, especially to your overall sleeping patterns….
