writing || life during COVID-19

Today is the start of week 5 in this new reality. I keep catching myself saying "this all happened so fast", only to immediately disagree with myself. It didn't happen fast, it just happened in exponential increments, and depending on what camp of people you're in you would have been alarmed at different stages. Here's… Continue reading writing || life during COVID-19

lifestyle || podcast recommendations for your home isolation

This has been a strange week. The COVID-19 pandemic has been escalating around the world for a while now, but this was the first week where it seemed to penetrate our university's walls.

helloo world! I got back from my 3-week solo trip to visit family in Romania a couple days ago. It’s been an absolutely astonishing past month for me. I had a blast spending time with my (apparently pretty big) family, making new friends, and embracing new experiences.

organization || Printable Math Drills

Numeracy skills are so important and I think the current Ontario curriculum for math doesn't emphasize them enough.

When I was younger, I used to do math drills on various topics as part of a math program I was enrolled in, and which I use with many of the students I tutor. Sharing my own printable version with you today!
