Idea City Toronto 2013 – Big Ideas or Big Misses?

Earlier this month my classmates and I were lucky enough to be invited to Idea City in Toronto.

So as you can imagine, I was pretty excited to attend Idea City […]

Better late than never? St. Patrick’s Day 2013

Ah, St. Patrick’s Day. What a lovely day, if you ask me. It symbolizes the end of winter, and welcomes a new spring. It lets me use my Irish heritage as an excuse to drink green beer. And best of all, emerald green really compliments my skin tone. This year, although I was fighting one […]
