Why would someone voluntarily commit to writing a blog, spend more time… Read More Why Become Part of the McGill GradLife Team?
For sure, I am not an expert on relationships. But I am not the only one who has seen dozens of couples being formed and destroyed, some others being full of hope and sometimes full of anger and regret.

Serait-ce le retour du soleil, la fin de la session ou juste le hasard des choses: là, en ce moment, tout va bien. J’en profite. J’ai passé la dernière session à tout planifier pour partir en stage… Read More Je croise les doigts et touche du bois: la recherche va bien

Companies like 23andMe and Ancestry.com will sequence sections of your DNA and be able to extrapolate tons of information including, as the name suggests, your ancestry as well as genetic disorders and health risks. But while it’s very cool to find out that you’re 65% Ethiopian… Read More DNA and Me (Part 1)
Seven. Six. Five. Four. Three. Two. One. Zero. An open hand appeared, stopping people from crossing the street. Green circles let cars moving on, red ones blocked them behind the line. Finally I could reach the other side. On my way to a café where a friend of mine was hopefully waiting for me, hopefully… Read More Our story: “Coffees”
PhD candidate! A major milestone that was the culmination of months of writing, reading, research and revising. Late night meeting with my advisor (who was invaluable), pushing my thinking, drawing connections from my hazy unformed thoughts. I held a practice defence that was open to everyone in the department. Now that was nerve wracking. Four… Read More PhD Candidate
I was attempting to zoom up Peel the other day, going from the metro up to the Faculty of Education. There were McGill students everywhere, going up and down the hill. I was in a crazy rush, trying to move through the hordes of students as quickly as possible. And I kept having to move… Read More Brain Hacking

Last week I finally could breathe the fresh spring air that relieved my soul from the recycled air of my underground office. I believed that I would be… Read More Free Time Stress
Classes are done. Assignments are submitted. Exams are written. The regular school year is over, and summertime is here! We are very lucky to be graduate students in Montreal.
