French Revolution: I am Claire Lacombe

Hello world! I would like to formally introduce myself as Claire Lacombe, one of the two founding members of the Society of Revolutionary Republican Women. Firstly, I was born on August 4, 1765 in the town of Pamiers, France. I wasn’t born into a super rich or superior family, but I was fortunate enough to get an education. When I was young, I was very much into acting in theater.. Read More

In-Depth 2016 Week 16: Final Stretch!!

The last couple weeks of In-Depth are coming up, and I’m sad that it’s almost over (although I will be continuing after In-Depth ends). I’ve been through quite a lot. Starting with being really sore the first week to dealing with my knee problems to meeting new friends. So far, I think I’ve done pretty well considering I’ve had to work through my injury. My mentor, Leah, has been really.. Read More


Overall, memes can be pointless, but amusing. I’m not a “big” follower of memes, but I have my favorites. For one, I made one of my favorite artists’ memes to relate to current events. It is quite similar to the original meme which is “Miley, what’s good?!”  but I changed the person from Miley to Donald Trump. I did this change mainly because Donald Trump is quite relevant, This meme.. Read More

In-Depth 2016 Week 12: New Things

Sadly, during all of spring break, there were no classes. That resulted in me becoming a little bit rusty when I went back to class on Thursday, but to my surprise, Leah wasn’t there. Another instructor taught us the daily routine of warm-up, skill development, WOD (Workout of the Day), and stretching. Not going to lie, I was pretty sore after the first class back mainly because we finally did.. Read More

In-Depth 2016 Week 8: Change

It’s been a month since I started in-depth and I have finally been going twice a week! At first, I thought I was going to be super sore to the point where I couldn’t walk, but I was wrong. Going twice a week has been a good change because I’m getting stronger. I’m not dying after the warm-up. In the picture below, you will see what activities we did. We started off with.. Read More

In-Depth 2016 Week 6: Accomplishment

As I’m spending more time at Crossfit, I’m getting more and more comfortable with everyone there. Hopefully starting next week, I’ll be going to Crossfit twice a week like I mentioned before, instead of once week! At first, I couldn’t get any of the techniques right because I was a beginner, but I’m starting to get the hang out it, and hopefully I’ll be able to post a video next time! Leah has.. Read More

In-Depth 2016 Week 4: Getting Stronger

I can already feel and see myself getting stronger. It’s only been a couple weeks since in-depth started, and I can’t believe how much I’m enjoying Crossfit. There is such a great community there and everyone is super supportive, especially when you first start. My first class was a couple weeks ago, as mentioned in my first blog post, and it was quite difficult. I was very sore afterwards, and.. Read More

In-Depth 2016 Week 1: Introduction!!

Halfway into the school year, and we’re already starting in-depth. The second year of talons has gone by pretty fast, and I’m excited to start a new project. My last years in-depth project was very relaxing and open ended, but this year I’ve decided to try something different, but in the same general area of topics. I can tell that this year will be just as much fun. Last year.. Read More

Helping Out Others

For my leader in the community project, I decide to do someone who helps out in a specific part of the community. Charissa is a kind, helpful, and determined person. She is a pharmacist, graduated from UBC, and also someone who volunteers every Sunday at a church. One of the reasons she became a pharmacist is because she’s always loved sciences in school, so she wanted to pursue something to.. Read More


I honestly didn’t use a lot of websites or books because I already knew a lot about my eminent person, but here are the sites that I did use! This is your typical Wikipedia website. It includes some basic information about her personal life, career, concert tours, artistry, and more! If you ever want to buy her products, they’re all here. From face cleansers, to body lotions, she’s got it.. Read More
