    "It's personal."

    A nice, short sentence that clearly slaps you in the face. Slams the door in front of you; it's none of your business.

    What's wrong with being personal anyway?

    More importantly, what's wrong with revealing that the world isn't perfect? Why must we perpetually portray something as more than what it is. They say "Fake it till you make it".

    Recently, I've had an emotional roller coaster of a weekend. I played the role of executive, facilitator, friend, daughter, human, politician, citizen, future professional and child. And as I stared down the hallways of parliament, staring at MPPs working to make the truth as readily available to the public as possible so they can make the changes they so desire on our behalf, I wonder. I wonder that in a club that organises such an event there is more collusion, bitterness, cliques, and snide behaviour the spit out lies than there probably are in the mouths and minds of the actual people we are portraying.

    What on earth does that say about us? I pray this is not a sign for the future.

    Today, I read article after article, and watched numerous YouTube videos on the Trudeau family. I forced myself into a state of reassurance that there is genuine passion and positive change for a nation is easily possible. I also saw all the hate comments Justin and Pierre have gotten over the years.

    I suppose, what frightens me the most is that, I poured my entire heart and soul into this club. I many times placed it above my schoolwork, was there even when I had bronchitis, and it was never, ever, for self-gain. It was always for the delegates, for the ability to provide education about parliament. To help Canada maintain that outstanding reputation it once had.
