Check this video out. It was from the summer time but I was finally able to actually go through all of the videos I had from the summer. I used my GoPro Hero 4 Silver and several of extras to get the videos. Hope you enjoy it!

However, my school is going well; semester is done, masters application is almost done just have to wait for my transcript from my school and then it is all complete, applied to graduate and just have to set up my graduation photos. Other than that everything is pretty much going well.
Europe trip is still on the go and I am beyond excited. I've pretty much planned several other trips afterwards and hopefully I will be taking my masters next year, which will keep me out of the workforce for another two years haha. On the bright side I will have a masters degree in history and hopefully be able to get a job unlike my schoolmates who will be forced onto a waiting list to teach in schools.
That's a little bit of what is happening in my life currently, but hopefully this winter break I will be able to post more often.

As of today my sister and I have officially booked our trip to Europe!!! What an exciting day! Yeah, it was expensive, but it is totally worth it. I am beyond excited to go and visit a brand new continent and several countries I've only dreamed of visiting and now it is finally becoming a reality. We will be travelling to England, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Vatican City, Switzerland and France!
We decided instead of travelling on our own and booking everything on our own to travel with Contiki. We have both heard amazing things about Contiki and we have had friends and family members both use it and coming back with amazing stories about how amazing their time was. Plus, it was about $4000 cheaper! Crazy how expensive travelling is!
I cannot wait to fly to a new continent, to experience new cultures (even though Canada isn't much different from Europe), to meet new people, and just to have a brand new experience. This is a once in a lifetime type of trip, one where you can't schedule on a whim, especially with a full time job. Now is the time to travel, eventually it will cost so much money to fly and stay in Europe, and also I'm 24 and now is definitely the time to travel around.
More information to come on what we are doing!!

The world. It is so vast and complex and extraordinary. To think that every continent and every country has their own specific landmasses and monuments. Each country has had very different histories and beautiful stories have been intertwined throughout history. Traveling, I think, is one of the best educations a person can get. To visit monuments where queens and kings of stood, where battles were won and lost, where buildings used to exist, that is learning. Sitting in a classroom and being forced to study and write papers and take tests is not learning, it is being taught to pass a test. Life is not a test, it is a learning experience. The more you learn the richer your life is.
