And being at a competitive university doesn’t help the struggle.

I am like you.

The Trouble With Loving Too Many Things – How to Be Less Distracted

I can be easily distracted. There’s easily half-a-dozen different lives and lifestyles that I can imagine for myself, and I could be happy with any of these paths. From dreams of being a traveling nomad, to desires of becoming articulate in movement through dance, to thoughts about continuing my studies in earth science, and even new pursuits of counseling psychology – these broad and varied interests all have a life of their own.

The Feel Good Factor

Linnea Osterberg

http://www.woodnbits.com/it-is-a-good-day-to-feel-good/In honor of the upcoming activities night (Jan. 19th), I’ve decided to dedicate my post to some of the awesome and maybe less well-known student groups at McGill. Obviously I don’t have space to elaborate on all the incredible clubs at McGill so don’t forget to go to the SSMU clubs website (http://ssmu.mcgill.ca/clubs-services/about-clubs/clubs/) where they have a full listing of all clubs.I would highly recommend everyone visit this website since it provides contact info for most groups on campus. I also encourage everyone to go to activities night, because not only do you get to see what clubs are out there but often you get free food and candy as well!

(In order to impart some type of organization to my clubs list I’ve broken clubs into the same categories in which they appear on SSMU website. Many of these groups also have a facebook presence as well.)
