“He said the way my blue eyes shined” Was the opening line to her favourite song Boy, it takes me back. “Love Story” used to be our song We danced every time it came on Can’t believe what it could have been I can still see her every time I close my eyes Back to those beautiful summer times But now everything has changed   We used to be so happy and so in love You were the queen that turn me in your king I never thought we were…

Deep End

Again! Again! Childlike, the voice softly echoes in my ears As I walk by the ghostly lane. Autumn breezily peeking in.    Seasonal depression lurks As the leaves placidly fall. The faceless child runs up to me. Wrinkling my leather jacket As she clings and hovers around me.    Again! Again! Filled with conflicting emotions. I crouch down by her,  In her eyes glass-like. filled with ambition.  I see my reflection   Oh to be a kid again, Not caring about tomorrow, running around Aimlessly,  Pure joy- Joy.  When was…

A Review of Arne Hassing’s, Church Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945 Uncategorized 

A Review of Arne Hassing’s, Church Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945

Arne Hassing’s novel, Church Resistance to Nazism in Norway, 1940-1945, is one that I would not change many aspects of, or rather object to. I believe that Hassing’s research and the topics he chooses to explore are extremely useful when discussing the idea of Second World War education; we often neglect the impact that smaller nations have had on the overall everlasting effects of the War. This is not to say that Norway’s efforts have had no impact, but that the internal struggles of the Church are something to reflect…

Suburbia

Should you go walking out at night, you may find yourself at a crossroads. Though the streetlamp may shine above, it will do nothing to help illuminate your decision. Should you go left, you’ve already made a mistake. Walking down the open maw of an unfamiliar street, you’ll find houses lined perfectly like rows of teeth. All of them, as clean and polished as the next one. They are identical, of course. Trying to find something that sets them apart would be like distinguishing two drops of water. In short,…

Soul cleanse

Lies twist your mouth, contort your face, and stain your soul. “Thou shalt not bear false witness”, I kept repeating like a mantra. Lies sully, defile, and taint the person that is fooled by your treachery. Tears stained my cheeks as I continued: “Thou shalt not bear false witness!”  Lies should burn a mark on your forehead for the world to see, branding you to remind the world of your deception. But they don’t. Not in this world. Lies are nothing but a mere inconvenience. Everyone seems to get away…

Bell Let’s Talk: A Month of Mental Health Awareness

The month of January: we start the new year with grand festivities and high hopes, new dreams for the new year. Yet the sky is grey, the snow is a revolting brown and everything that could possibly go wrong in the winter wasteland we call home does seem to go wrong. As time as drags on, we become weary and slumber into a sleep, not wanting to leave it nor talk to friends. Unknowingly, one might have seasonal depression, which is characterized largely by persistent recurring thoughts of negativity and general despair…

My First Day at Vanier and the Lessons I Learned

Anyone who knows me knows that I do not do well in new environments, and Vanier was no different. My first day at Vanier was terrifying. Actually, the whole week leading up to it was terrifying. I remember going to Bureau en Gros and spending an hour buying folders and labels and pens, and making sure everything was color coordinated. I remember spending even longer agonizing about what I was going to wear (will everyone be in leggings and sweatpants or skirts and dresses?) I even spent a day staring…
