When Will I Use the Quadratic Formula? – Applying Coursework in Real Life

At the end of my degree, I hope that I’ll not only be well versed in my field of study but also know enough about those around me that I’d be interacting with at some point in my life. I’m not sure whether second year courses have shown me more real life applications or if I’m just getting better at making connections between the content of all my courses, but I’m starting to feel like the imposter syndrome that plagued me in first year is fading and that I’m growing as a student and more importantly, as a person.

The “Study” in Study Abroad

Study abroad has been a life changing international experience where I have learned to live independently, experience a new culture, and study in a different academic environment. Most of my posts have been about the fun parts of traveling and living “abroad” part of studying abroad and now I am going to focus on the main reason for my exchange which is to “study” abroad.

Happy Nutrition Month!

The month of March brings with it many things:

  • Midterms
  • Papers
  • Movie releases (London Has Fallen comes out tomorrow (sequel to Olympus Has Fallen), I’m excited but also skeptical… then again, how bad can a Gerard Butler-starring film really be?)
  • Warmer weather (hopefully!)
    AND
  • Nutrition Month!

Registered Dietitians of Canada celebrate Nutrition Month every March. This year, they’re encouraging Canadians to take a 100-meal journey over the course of March, focusing each week on a new goal such as making quality food decisions and being aware of portion sizes.
