Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

IMG_7686_Fotor

Hello world!

I am honestly excited for 2015, well more like the second half of 2015. But nonetheless this year is another bittersweet year for me. It was an emotional roller coaster and I hope to get my life back in order. This post is not going to be one of those negative post where I talk about everything. This post is going to highlight the best moments of 2014.

First I want to talk about my 19th birthday. Yes I did turn of legal age in Canada and I’ve only drank a little bit before my 19th birthday. But turning 19 is like that year where its your last year of being a teenager which can be scary. Lots of responsibilities, challenges and everything else in between. But I was glad that everything worked well for my 19th birthday. Speaking of which, I went to Seasons Fest a couple days before my birthday and saw Zedd, Duke Dumont, and Flume. You had no idea how excited was to see Zedd. I honestly connected with his music. I know everyone is like going to say, oh that Clarity song? Is that the only song you know from Zedd? I love his song Find You and Stay the Night because it connected with me so well. These two songs put me in a place where I can express myself and I am so glad that I also saw Zedd this past weekend at Contact Fest. Overall, EDM has played a huge role in my life and I can’t even express my love for EDM.

This year was also a year where I also find my true friends and find love. Okay let me say that my love life is a complicated story and I am not going to go into details about that. But I am going to talk about my friends. If my friends are reading this, they know who they are. A group of my friends have been there for me throughout my whole ordeal this past year. They have been there for me through the mental breakdowns, the random 5am honesty hours and the random adventures to Langford at 3am or drives to MT Tomie. Nonetheless I want to thank my friends for being there for me. I have realized who my true friends are and I am looking forward to the crazy adventures we are going to have coming soon.

I want to say that 2015 is going to hopefully be my recovery year. Its hard to tell when the year hasn’t started yet but I just want to move on and just be happy. Although there can be challenges that are coming ahead, I am ready to face them and be a strong as ever. 2015 is also the year where I turn 20, the year where I enter into the wild 20s. Living life to the fullest and live the adventures. If you have read my last post on my goals for 2015 feel free to do that.

Hope you guys enjoy your new years, say safe and I will talk to you guys in 2015. If you have any suggestions or comments, leave it in the comment section below. Please follow my social media sites.

traveling

IMG_9798

Hi everyone,

I know i have been MIA. Let me start of by saying that this semester has taken a toll on me. I seriously miss blogging and I have been so busy with school that I dont have time to do any of that. However since the semester is almost over, I will be getting back into blogging and what so ever. But if you have been following my social media cites, I am pretty much active on instagram, snapchat, and twitter.

I am writing this blog as I am about to leave for Victoria for school. As exhausted as I am, I have been uber busy during my whole reading break which is unfortunate for me because it’s suppose to be a time for me to catch up on my school work and take a break. In addition to all that craziness, I am traveling a lot in 2015. WOOHOO! I am planning some trips which I will not say where yet because it is in the planning stages. Some will be with my family, some will be with my friends and some will be trips I will be going on my own.

I’ve realized that I can’t be sitting at home and be all miserable in terms of being stuck in one place at the same time. Even though I am living in Victoria and my parents are back home in Vancouver, I need to get out more and explore the world. Since I am turning 20 in April, I need to start to live my life and embrace every opportunity that is given to me. Thus I believe that traveling is the way to do it. Its funny because I had a conversation with my mom the other day about travel and she wishes that she could re live her 20s and do whatever she wants to do before settling down. Trust me, I will embracing my 20s and travel as much as I can. So I hope I can take you guys on this amazing journey with me :)

Anyway it was nice blogging and I hope I can post more blogs in the coming weeks.

Anyways as per usual, Please follow my social media sites. Twitter and Instagram: @brigittemegan and tumblr http://forevercanucks.tumblr.com , pinterest http://pinterest.com/brigittemegan , and http://brigittemegan.vsco.co I’ll be posting a lot of photos on my cite.

Until next time, catch you on the flip side.

September Updates

Hey guys,

I know I haven’t been writing on my blog a lot, but that is going to change. Lately I have been swamped with school and my life has been crazy. I pretty much lost my voice for almost a week and a half and I’ve been going through a lot of rough moments in the past couple of months. Hope you guys understand the reasons why I haven’t been posting on here, but I’m pretty much back. And trust me, I’ve been gathering ideas for the blog and hope you guys are excited.

As you may probably know, I am back in school full time. I am currently taking 5 courses, which is pretty much a big work load considering I am entering my second year of my post-secondary education. It had me thinking, am I ready for grad school or should I be working? There is just a lot of soul thinking that I need to do with my career. My main goal is to help people as much as possible on the federal level. Whether if it is solving the issues of health care wait times, foreign affair issues or issues that affects people on a daily basis. I want to be able to make a difference and be the one who can step up to the plate and do whatever it takes to be where I want to be. It’s scary to think about my future especially I’m only a second year, but time flies by so fast. As well, I am going to be working on 2 elections (Federal and municipal) so that is going to be interesting because I haven’t worked on the municipal level, which is actually going to be interesting. I guess it is good experience for me to look at how elections look behind the scenes.

I’ve been getting some request about a room tour of my new place, and that will become up soon on my youtube. I also got some other stuff on the way so stay tuned. Some reviews like my views on the iPhone 6, and more tech related stuff will also be up really soon. Anyways, in terms of uploading post, I am looking at posting at least 2-3 posts a weeks. I currently left my DSLR at my parent’s house in Vancouver so I won’t be able to do some shoots until after Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. This is down from 5 days a week since I have a flexible schedule in the summer. I will be starting with a post on Thursday so be ready guys! I’m back!

Anyways, thanks for supporting me! And for those who have been my tumblr followers for a while. Thank you so much (from the bottom of my heart) for sticking with me for the past 4 1/2 years.

Anyways as per usual, Please follow my social media sites. Twitter and Instagram: @brigittemegan and tumblr http://forevercanucks.tumblr.com and pinterest http://pinterest.com/brigittemegan

August Craziness

Hello! Yes I am alive! And sorry for the lack of post. August is has been insane so far, and its going to get even insane. I’ll give you guys an update. 

So I am almost finish with my summer classes. I am currently working on my last assignment, studying for my final and etc. So my final is actually not until during the first week of school, which I know is all my fault for not booking and finishing my schooling earlier but I have been so busy. So that’s happening. 

I recently went to the Vancouver show for Lady Gaga because she had to postpone the concert from May 28 to August 9th. Honestly the best show hands down. It was just insane that’s all I have to say. I literally lost my voice. I have a snapchat video that should be coming up on my youtube soon. I just need to edit and stuff and I don’t have time to get it all edited and everything. 

Third, I am moving on Thursday!!! Geez. So I actually have a lot of my stuff there but I am driving over to Victoria for an 36 hour trip and organize my stuff, move my clothes, shoes that I need for the year, buy things I need for the townhouse and set my room up. I will also film a snapchat story or if I can find my vlogging camera I will vlog the whole thing. But the video quality maybe shitty, so I hope you guys don’t mind. 

So I have been busy with all these things that I have neglected my blog. So I will be post from now on at least 2-3 post a week. I know its not as much as I used to post (which was every weekday) but I hope you all understand what I am going through this month. I hope you all understand. I have 3 youtube videos on the way. I have the VS Pink/Chapters/Drugstore Haul up on my youtube which is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYcrNysrpB8 a tag video that should be up on Thursday (hopefully), and a tag video next week just to make up the lack of post. Again I will hopefully vlog the Victoria trip and find my vlogging camera ASAP! 

Anyways as per usual, Please follow my social media sites. Twitter and Instagram: @brigittemegan and tumblr http://forevercanucks.tumblr.com and pinterest http://pinterest.com/brigittemegan

Grinding for school

1013189_10151861412208974_1045488480_n_Fotor

Hello everyone,

Today’s Back to School post talks about grinding for school. This term is used a lot when you are working non-stop on your school assignments. I know majority of you are enjoying your summer vacation. But many of my friends and I are doing summer semesters for many reasons. I like to be productive, which is why I choose to do a summer semester. However I am doing online school which gives me the flexibility to do what I want to do in the summer.

It is almost August and its called Grind Time. Here are some tips to help you with this. Because grind time is the most important time where you want to give it your all. First tip is that you need to have a place where you can work. I absolutely hate working at home because there is so much distractions happening. Like my mom screaming at my brother to clean up the computer table, or my dad watching TV, or my brother playing games on the computer. I like to go to the library or coffee shops to get my work done because I am focused and I can tune people out. Hopefully I don’t see anyone I know that will get me sidetrack with something else that is not important. Productivity is key, so having a quiet place where you are able to get work done is important.

Secondly, beverage and snacks. You’ll get hungry and thirsty. Have a lot of it around because you’ll need it. I like to have some of type of beverage with me so I can stay hydrated. As for food, snacks will do the trick to keep me focus.

Third, tune out social media. I do not go on Facebook, twitter, or anything else. That will distract you big time. It is hard to not go on social media, but I have learnt to control what I need to tune off. So turn it off or you won’t get things done.

Fourth, Have a notebook or planner so you can jot down things you need to do. I find this helpful for me because I have a crazy life. I always refer back to my list so I am on track with everything.

Fifth, music is key. You can tune the world out. I suggest getting overhead headphones to block everyone. It is obvious that you don’t want to get disturbed with your big headphones. So that is my tips for grinding through school and work. If you have any other tips, please leave them down below.

Overcoming teenage hood

IMG_8101_Fotor

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a fantastic week because I am getting ready to hammer my history courses home with 2 big papers that are 2000 words each. I am in the steps of researching and coming up with my argument, while waiting for response of my grades for assignment 3. Hoping it is a great turn out. 

So today’s topic is something I don’t really like to talk about, but it is that stage of life that is important to many of us. And that is our teenage hood. This is the step in life where you begin to find yourself and explore who you are. You start to grow up and become responsible, independent, mature and the many more adult things.

For me, I am in my last year of being a teen. Nineteen. You start to have more freedom. No more parents telling you to do your homework, or clean your room, and the many other things that they can’t control anymore because you are an adult. This seems the luxury, but let me flash back to the beginning years of teenage hood. We were once the awkward teen who was lost in this weird world. I was one of them. I was that person who was confused of what I really wanted to do. The grade 2 Brigitte was that rounded child who love sports, geography, history and the many more non-fiction novels about the real world. While the rest of the kids were outside playing on the playground, gossiping about what happened at the Co-op (the townhouses that many of the people lived), playing grounders and many more. For me, you can say I was the outsider and as soon as grade 8 rolled around, I had made some friends that I never talk to anymore because we all grew up and went to different high schools. Being that my parents didn’t like the high school I was suppose to go to, with all the bad influences and everything in-between, they wanted me to have a fresh start at life. Might I tell you, my family moved right after I got back from my 6 month trip to Malaysia. In a way, my parents wanted to have a better learning environment. But honestly, wherever you went you have to deal with the same type of person.  

High school was a rough one. I remember hating it and wanting to transfer. Funny I was with my friend about a day ago, and we talked about how we both hated the high school and had to put up with the hockey academy guys who though they ran the whole school. Yeah I still hate a hand full of them, but don’t need to think about those idiots until the 10 year reunion. Lets be honest, I probably won’t remember any of them at all. I would say that grade 10 was the lowest point, I would always come home upset but I would try to keep my hope up that I would get out of this tunnel that I call hell. At that point I realized that I needed to stand up and face these idiots. I needed to also distract myself from all of this through sports. And honestly, swimming had created an outlet for me to take my aggression and I am so glad I got to be a part of a team that put up with me with all of these things. Although there were some incidents with one of my team members trying to call the shots.

Whatever. Back to my story. I have learn to realize that, there are so many people in this world who are jealous of who you are, what you do, and what cool opportunities you are going through. And I have also realized that, I have to overcome some of the people who kept telling me, “I can’t do this.” I take this phrase seriously, because things are possible when you put your heart and soul into something you love. You can’t let anyone tell you what to do because, IT IS NOT THIER LIFE, IT IS YOURS. Even until this day, when people tell me that I don’t this or I can’t do that, I swear I will prove them wrong. Those words don’t mean anything to me. I have proven that I am capable to do anything. Whether if it is traveling, overcoming a big test or dealing with people I don’t like, I’ve done it all. My mood started to brighten up when the opportunity came up for me going to the Nation’s capital and fulfil one of my bucket lists items in 2012 was the most rewarding thing in my life. I came out with a friend who accepts me for who I am and has the same passion of mine. Politics.  Now I don’t care when people say, you can’t be a politician or a lawyer, or whatever. I still get those words today. Honesty, if those people don’t accept who I want to be, then beat it. Prove them wrong. That’s how I got through my teenage hood. I proved everyone wrong when I said I am going to be a leader. Laugh at me because of my height, how I dress or the mistakes I make. We are all human. Get used to it. 

Grade 12 was when everything started to fall into place. If I could re-do my senior year, I would do it. Hard work pays off. I was able to go to Ottawa again, in 2013 and meet a lot of friends that I still actually talk to. About 8 of them actually. I’m just glad to have them in my life. And if you are one of them who is reading this, you probably know who you are. Honestly, you guys have supported me through this past year and I can’t thank you enough. You made my days better when I had a hard day, you make me laugh on snapchat and I can always count on someone(s) who understand me. And I thank you. 

19 is going to be a rough year. Second year of university will be tough. By the end of it, I will be entering into my 20s and be half way done my undergraduate degree. I’m going to power my way through, just like I did in high school. And those same words will still follow, PROVE THEM WRONG. And overcome the people who say I can’t do it. That’s pretty much how I got through everything so far. So how did you overcome your challenges? Leave it in the comment section below.

A typical summer day with Brigitte

Hey guys, so today I am going to post a follow me type of post today. I hope it should be interesting or something. So as usual, I’ll be in my bed, during the summer I don’t really have a tight schedule. I’ll usually be up around 11am or 12pm. Sometimes I’ll be up early in the morning so it really depends. Since I am working on one of my large papers, I need to brainstorm. I’ll sit in my bed for an hour brainstorming ideas with my notebook, pulling out articles and do some research before I’ll go downstairs and make myself brunch, lunch, whatever you want to call it.

For lunch, I had pizza pops, and a can of coke. So healthy right? Yeah I totally need to go grocery shopping ASAP. As soon as my mom comes home, she told me to go get this wheel cart thing from London Drugs so I can move my stuff. It kinda defeats the purpose since half my stuff is already at my townhouse, but I guess this will come in handy. Obviously since I am a starbucks gal, I got myself a grande Teavana Ice green tea lemonade for the first time and it was actually pretty good. Looks like I have another starbucks fav for this month. So at Walmart, I picked up the EOS shaving cream in pomegranate raspberry, and some Ice Breakers Frost mints because mom like those mints. Surprisingly I didn’t leave with a huge bag full of stuff because it usually happens. Does this happen to you or what?

So at Canadian tire, I bout the ziploc bag space bag because Im going to need a lot of space to move my shoes and clothes to victoria. Sadly, my boxes that I bought from Ikea last year are at the townhouse so I can’t fit my shoes in there. So I am going to come up with an idea to solve this problem. But I’ll have to get a smaller luggage I can use to bring back and forth because I seriously need to get one of those. Most of last year, I used my huge luggage for my weekend trips to Vancouver and that was getting to crazy. I actually found one at Walmart that is $60 and it was one of the Air Canada Luggage. I’ll probably go back and get that or something. But Anyways it is disgusting outside, like raining cats and dogs. So I’m probably going to stay inside for the rest of the night and do some research and start on one of my 2 papers.

So what did you do today? Leave it down below. Please follow my social media sites. Twitter and Instagram: @brigittemegan and tumblrhttp://forevercanucks.tumblr.com and pinteresthttp://pinterest.com/brigittemegan

Seattle Day 3

IMG_7326_Fotor

 

Last day in seattle! I hope you guys are enjoying yourselves. So we got up at around 8am to get to the Space Needle. We didn’t have time the other days we were in Seattle, so we went the morning we went back to Canada. So we got on the Monorail that takes you to the Space Needle. 9:30am, was when we were on top a few hundred feet. It was seriously the most coolest thing ever. Funny, half of Seattle was covered in clouds and half wasn’t. I kind of wished we came to the Space Needle during the evening time as well, but I guess next time I will be doing that.

 

 

IMG_7335_FotorIMG_7325_Fotor

 

After that, we booked it back to the hotel and checked out. For lunch, we went to Chinatown. Yay for Asian food. I don’t have any pictures of Chinatown, but my Aunt took pictures on her phone so I am waiting on those. We slowly drove back to Vancouver, but we stopped at 2 outlets. I will have a haul coming up in the next week. So stay tuned. I ended up getting some pretty interesting pieces for my closet. I know this post is pretty short but the haul will make up for it :)

I am going to Seattle again on the 31st of July so lets hope I can get my purse or something to add to my closet.

Hope you guys are enjoying your summer break. Please follow my social media sites. Twitter and Instagram: @brigittemegan and tumblrhttp://forevercanucks.tumblr.com and pinteresthttp://pinterest.com/brigittemegan Safe travels everyone!
