3 years of Planning Becomes a Reality
I've been fairly quiet lately, to be honest I was super busy at school these past few days. But this morning while checking my e-mail I received a letter from Montreal. They've selected me to study at their beloved institution this Fall.

Lastly I derive my optimism from you community! 3years we've been together but I'm still a bit reluctant to open up my profile. Although once I start at Montreal in August, I'll try and take as many photos as possible and post my best ones up here. Also I'll make more of an ...
