Editorial: Discovering the benefits of personal connections

Editorial: Discovering the benefits of personal connections

It has recently come to my attention that other people, even strangers, are in fact worth the effort of getting to know. Throughout my life I’ve developed an appreciation of the peace that comes from being alone. There’s so much less chaos when the only person in your environment is yourself. It’s also made me supremely comfortable in my own […]

Editorial: Decisions, decisions

In a world full of contradicting ideas, it is hard to clearly identify what you believe in and what is best for yourself. Whether it be personal ideas or the style to try and keep up with, as it is difficult to always differ if you’re aiming to please yourself or others. I find I’m constantly going through my own […]

Editorial: It’s okay not to be okay

Editorial: It’s okay not to be okay

I’ve never been an outrightly emotional person. I was never one of those people who cried when they saw a video of a cute puppy and I certainly make it my mission in life to never let myself shed a tear over an adolescent boy who did me wrong. I understand the ways of the world pretty well and things […]

Editorial: being an athlete doesn’t have to stop after high school

Being an athlete was always my identifier for the majority of my life. Playing soccer since the ripe age of two turning three, playing basketball since the fourth grade and dabbling in other sports along the way, sports were pretty much all I ever knew. From age eight I started playing competitive soccer, and at age 10 I started playing […]

Editorial: 23 years down and a lifetime to go

Today is my twenty third birthday. Yes, I am still in my undergrad and yes, I do have goals for myself. I have spent four and a half years at Laurier and honestly still do not want to leave. We often have a timeline in our minds, or at least I do, and it often relates to how old we […]

Editorial: Finding inspiration on the field

Editorial: Finding inspiration on the field

Soccer has always been a passion of mine, and my long-time love for the sport could not have been fuelled without a dash of inspiration given to me by some of my favourite professional female soccer players. Growing up, I always looked at soccer as a “men’s sport” simply because I was exposed to nothing more. When I played, I […]

Editorial: Experiential learning in the world of dating

For the first time in a long time, I’m seeking casual experiences with new people instead of a serious long term relationship.  In the process of doing so, I started reading articles about dating and meeting new people. Out of all the articles I’ve read from magazines targeted at men and women, I’ve come to the conclusion that people are […]

Editorial: The value of your first job

For many people, a first job is a mere stepping stone in the river of unknowns that begin your journey into adulthood. It provides you with a sense of independence, responsibility, an understanding of how “the real world” works and what seems like the most important aspect — a little disposable income. In most cases, it becomes one of the […]

Editorial: Overcoming Social Anxiety

Editorial: Overcoming Social Anxiety

The first year I entered university, I was absolutely terrified. Beyond the general fear that most people have going into a new environment, I was stricken with a constant, all consuming unease that followed me wherever I went. Walking through large groups of people made me incredibly nervous, going into crowded lecture halls left me hyperventilating in the bathroom and […]

Unhooking the stigma behind going braless

Unhooking the stigma behind going braless

There isn’t a woman I know that enjoys wearing a bra. How can anyone blame them? Bras are confining, they cut into the skin and add an extra layer of fabric in the summer. However, because I’m not entirely small chested, I never considered going braless. People would notice; my breasts would be out of control. It seemed like the […]
