Brad’s questions:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING? 

I have been blogging since December 2016! So, almost a year and a half.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS FROM NOW?

Hopefully graduating from university.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

Usually, I get kind of lost as to what to do when I have spare time. I like trying to learn different types of dance, running, lifting, or drawing! Those are my favourite things to do.

HOW MANY COUNTRIES HAVE YOU VISITED?

I’m not entirely sure about this one. I believe 4. Canada, The United States, The Caribbean Islands and Mexico. More to come, though!!

DO YOU ENJOY SPORTS? IF SO, WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE?

I haven’t played that many sports but hope to try some and find one that I like soon! Besides dance, of course. That would be my favourite.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SUBJECT IN SCHOOL?

Biology!

WHAT IS ONE BLOGGING TIP YOU HAVE FOR FELLOW BLOGGERS?

Be friendly and supportive of other bloggers. It builds the community, helps you get more views, you can make new friends and reading other people’s blogs is often pretty inspiring.

WHAT GOALS DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR LIFE?

There are so many! I am going to be kind of cheesy and say to help others.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DRINK?

Tea or coffee. Spiced teas are my favourite and just plain black coffee.

HOW MANY SIBLINGS DO YOU HAVE?

I have one sibling.

DO YOU PREFER PURCHASING THINGS ONLINE OR FROM A STORE?

Online for sure! I talk about purchasing clothes online vs in person in a post here.

I’m back-ish!

Hello, everyone! I got my midterms sent in so now I will have a little more time to be writing again. School will be the number one priority, though, so I will do my best to be active here but until school is finished, it might not be super active. I have lots of new post ideas, though, and can’t wait to share it with you all!

P.S. It’s Peri

A Short Hiatus

As I’m working to get optimum mid-term marks to send into universities I will not be blogging as much, for a bit. Once the marks are in I will be back with lots more new content! Thank you for your patience, everyone. 😊

  • What is your favourite drink? Tea! Right now pumpkin spice tea, specifically.
  • What is one thing many people don’t know about you? I am a person of many mysteries. I’m joking, but I can’t think of anything really.

February Goals Completed

It’s March! Made it through February and it’s one step closer to spring. There wasn’t a huge amount of goals completed this month but the ones I did complete were pretty major.

Goals completed this month

Blog

  • Hit 1,000 followers. There are now over 1,000 followers on the blog and it’s crazy! New goal 2,000?! That might be a bit high but it’s going to happen.
  • Get my own domain and site. The blog move was a little tedious, trying to figure all of the bugs and switching all the links over, but now the blog has a permanent home.
  • Set up ads. You may have noticed them on the blog, adding them will help with paying for university!
  • Post more regularly on Instagram. You can see my posts here!
  • Start the Newsletter back up. It is a work in progress but the sign-up page is back. Sign up for future newsletters here!

School

  • Get everything caught up. Somehow I was a term behind in math and several ahead in my other courses?? A side effect of being homeschooled. I finished my last math courses, started the new one and have caught up there. I’m also almost done half of my courses for this year.
  • It’s not really school related but I finished reading Tom Sawyer which I was reading digitally and kept forgetting about.
  • Come up with some backup plans in case I do not get into university. I talk about the process here.

Fun and random

It was a very productive month for the blog and thank you, everyone, for reading and helping the blog grow! What are some of your goals for March?

P.S. It’s Peri

Scholarship Struggles

Scholarships have been a bit of a struggle in the journey to university. They either require you to have done something very extraordinary ( which is definitely justifiable! ) or it seems like the places are just getting you to do their work for them. It’s been overwhelming with the amounts of scholarships available and trying to figure out what ones are actually worth pursuing.

 

Scholarships in Canada and some websites to find them

It’s worth looking around as early as possible for scholarships. I started looking into them last fall and most of the smaller ( about $1000 and under ) scholarships required it to be the year in which you’d be attending university. I would thoroughly check out the major scholarships but if you haven’t done anything too crazy it’s not worth spending a lot of time trying to find huge scholarships.  Apply instead for as many smaller ones as possible! When you apply to universities and if you meet the scholarship requirements, schools will automatically consider you for some of their scholarships.

Scholarship sites for Canada

I’ve been using yconic.com which I like because they send emails with contests in which  you can win money for university. Contests are a good, easy and a generally pretty hassle-free way to try and get some school money. I also use scholarshipscanada.com.  They do not send email updates of scholarships I qualify for, which would be nice. Generally, you fill out a very detailed profile and they match you to any available scholarships. It’s not too overwhelming and there are quite a few options out there.

 

Not finding any

I haven’t actually applied for any yet! There doesn’t seem to be a lot of Applied Health specific ones, nor has there been any school-specific ones. The only scholarships I have found so far have been things like “design 3 T-shirts and you can win $25” ( that was legit one of them! ), or a lot of work for very little money. Once I have finished my schoolwork I will spend a lot more time on scholarships, though, because offsetting costs will be worth it!

 

Are there any fellow Canadians out there looking for scholarships, what sites do you use? Any other homeschoolers struggling with finding good scholarships?

New Blog Home!

Welcome to the new and improved P.S. It’s Peri! The blog has moved to psitsperi.com where I’ll be able to grow it more than before.

What’s new and what is the same?

Subscriptions are the same, all of the previous posts are the same, tags and comments are all the exact same as before. There is a bit of a new colour pallet, a new look for the blog! It will no longer be able to be reached at psitsperi.wordpress.com and only at psitsperi.com. And that’s it for the changes! Bear with me as I figure this out, but everything should run smoothly.

 

Thank you, everyone, for following along on my blog journey and helping it grow to new heights! And if you find anything that isn’t working right, please let me know in the comments or by contacting me and I will do my best to fix it.

 

P.S It’s Peri
