Today marks the day that it’s been two years since I started this blog! Thanks for following along everyone and new posts are coming very soon.
It’s been a few months, but this term of school is wrapping up so there’ll be more updates coming to the blog!
Want to know what’s coming soon? Some more travel, lots of posts about school and probably more food!
Thank you everyone, for sticking around and hope you enjoy the upcoming content.
Hello! I am back once again from another hiatus. Exams are finished, trips have been taken and there is about 1 month until university starts.
I forgot to take any videos on the trip around the British Isles, so no YouTube video on that. But there will be posts on finishing up high school and homeschooling, travel, and food (of course!).
P.S. This photo is of Loch Ness.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
Yes, I am still alive. Thanks to everyone who still follows, I will be getting back into active blogging and will be documenting my final year of high school, the process of applying to universities and my life along the way!
If you have any questions or things you’d like to see in upcoming posts, please let me know in the comments!
I just noticed I haven’t posted on the blog in over a month! I’m still alive, don’t worry lol I haven’t been very motivated to post anything but hopefully, in the summer I can get some more posts out!
