About

May, 2017

I’ve decided to update my “About” page, simply because I’m enjoying so much of my adventure, and have discovered the potential to turn it into something bigger… A writing project, for example! Thus, I’ve set up a few more categories, and put my posts in them! I’m putting down a list of existing/prospective posts here, as a guide and for future reference XD

Sept, 2016

Whew! Keeping two blogs, two fanfictions, and a job as a freelancer while attending university is stressful! Well, I guess I could manage, though FF updates will have to wait… Focusing on In Memoriam of An Era and making some money is top priority!

I’m an undergraduate student at McGill University, though I consider myself from Saanich, BC, the tiny piece of land up the peninsula and just north of Victoria. It’s such a beautiful place, Vancouver Island.

Anyways… I’m going on an exchange in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, UK, and this is the blog to record my entire journey. I plan to set off on boxing day, and spend my first month seeing as much of the southern British Isles as possible; I save the North for Easter, you see, when it’s warmer and more suitable for hiking and exploring.

There’s also the Toon, of course. I’m preparing for it. I’ve done some research and know a few places I’d like to frequent during my stay, but I also know that by living there, it’s going to be full of surprises! For school, I plan taking on two modules on psychology, one module on physiology, and one on English accents – sounds like an exciting semester! I’d also love to join the all-level-welcome rugby club and play a few more 7’s games, though I wouldn’t mind playing 15’s. If there’s time, I’d love to do some more rock climbing, or just train for it, for I plan to climb the Drake Stone in April…

And to end my trip with something spectacular, I managed to get myself a ticket for the Curse Child in mid-June. That’ll be the last item on my list for this six-month journey, and I know it’s going to end on a fantastic note.
