Oh, Canada

1 July 2016

Because of this country, I have achieved my level of success and have been able to thrive in the hardship of my life without falling victim to the phoniness and superficiality. I am who I am because of this country.

Prisoner of Tehran

In 1982, Marina Nemat was arrested on false charges by Iranian Revolutionary Guards and tortured in Tehran’s notorious Evin prisoner, but her own personal growth and bravery are what helped her to survive even the most horrendous situations. 

 Prisoner of Tehran is an extraordinary story of Nemat’s journey to freedom. Her story is tragic, gripping and sure to provoke your tears toward the end. It is an unforgettable memoir, it a  must-read. 

 

Quote #1

 

 Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover

Happy New (School) Year

School is here, the change from the routines of summer to a new schedule is often identifies as the cause of stress, anxiety and worries. Whether you have been away from school for a short period of time or for several years, you may experience these feeling during the first few days o school. It is unavoidable and I am sure that all the students out there can relate to that.

Returning students sometimes face the unknown and the unfamiliar. They may wonder if they will finish this time, how long it will take to finish and what lies at the end of the journey.

Here are some tips to ease Back to School Anxiety.  Eat well, drink water, exercise, breath deeply and don’t forget to set a positive, optimistic tone to help you get through the ups and downs of the daily life of school.

Good Luck :)

Snail Mail

Yay !!! I just received a snail mail from my talented photographer.

I love snail mail, I love anything that can arrive with a postage stamp. There’s something universally appealing about hand-written letters, It carries ‘more than words’, it carries the sender’s breath, perfume and hands on the letter. Not like the cold and empty E-mails.
