Singing talent: touches hearts of many


I was writing my essay for an hour and I needed something to distract me and I stumbled upon this video. My first thought was,”This is a funny video, Im in it for a good laugh”. Plan was to watch it, get a good laugh then continue on writing my essay.

here it is:

The moment I heard his voice, I was like,”OMG this guy can really sing”.

I was in complete awe the whole entire time I was watching it. I was moved by the song. I wasn’t expecting him to be such a good singer. It completely caught me off guard. I’m really glad I watched it.

It really gave me some inspiration. I hope you did too.

Top 10 reasons to love the Holidays


Christmas and the holidays are the season of giving. It’s a time when people are more kind and open-hearted. Read more at brainyquote

Since the holidays is just around the corner, I decided to list the top 10 things I love about the Holidays. Its my favourite time of the year. It brings people closer together and it promotes sacrificing something for the joy of others. Its an overall a feel good experience.

These are my personal favourite. Let me know what you think.

#1. Gifts

Its not a surprise that Gifts is at the top of the list. Who doesn’t like receiving gifts?. I know I do. It just brings me joy, not because of the gift itself, but really just grateful to the person. For me, the thought that goes into it is the most important thing. I personally don’t care about how much the person spent on it, Unless its really really expensive. Its the thought that counts people.

#2. Food

YES, FOOD! Its second to my list. Its the ultimate cheat month. Since Christmas is my family’s most celebrated event of the year. The amount of food is insane. The varieties of food is amazing and its always different every year. For us living north of the border, we have boxing day after Christmas. The morning of boxing day when you wake up, is the best feeling, “left over food never tasted better “. That’s why most people pack lbs. during this season.

#3. Shopping

Shopping! Shopping! and more Shopping! Its the time where people grind it out at work. Getting over time hours to cope with their spending. We spend more in a week, compared to what we’ve spent in a year total. I think for some people, it’s their way of rewarding themselves.

#4. Christmas parties

We also do secret santas every year. It makes things a lot more interesting and also you save a lot of money that way since you don’t have to get every single one of them a gift.

#5. Relatives away from home

Most of us have relatives away from home. Our grandmother visited us last year from California. It was really nice to see her again after a long time. Its been a while since I’ve last seen her. There’s just no better feeling than spending time with your loved ones. It brings us closer together. Its also a great time to catch up and share stories with them.

#6. Time off from work

YES it is! A couple of days off work is enough to be part of the top 10. It doesn’t need any explanation. More quality time with family and friends for sure.

#7. Christmas Jingles

If you’re living in Toronto, tune in to 98.1. They play Christmas music all day throughout the season. It instantly puts you in the mood for the holidays.

#8. Holiday Ambiance

I don’t know what it is about this season. It just puts you in a good mood. It could be the atmosphere, or the air we breathe. Its the feeling overall for me.

#9. Snow Snow Snow

We associate snow with a lot of activities. Tobogganing is my favourite.  Going down the hill with my makeshift sled made of boxes is the best. You just have to put on more layers to actually enjoy playing outside in the snow.

#10. Midnight Mass 

Catholic Christians has a unique way of celebrating Christmas. We attend a series of Church masses every night from the 16th of December to Christmas eve. Most of us believe that if you attend all of it, your wish would come true.  It is also meant to show devotion to God and heightened anticipation for Christ’s birth. Its a tradition.

There is also a souvenir shop at the end of the trail. If you like stuffed aquatic animals, then you will love the shop. Its full of items that are perfect for gifts. Its a perfect reminder of the experience you’ve had during the trip.

                        I have always wanted to go to Ripley’s Aquarium since they opened in October 2013. One of the most memorable experience I have had this past summer. That was the first time I went to an aquarium and I’m really glad that I did. Most of the aquatic animals there are rare and I’ve only seen on Television. There are also labels on the aquariums that are very informative so you can be educated of what you are looking at and the history behind it. It is just overall fun and at the same time very educational. Would definitely come back very soon.
