About canislupis

I joined YWS almost a decade ago, and it was a creative outlet for me then, but also an incredible source of learning and growth. I'm 21 now, and recently returned from four months studying Anthropology in Tanzania. In a few more months, I will graduate with a degree in Anthropology. Creative writing has been put on a back burner to make room for social theory and trying to understand just how the world works, but words and this site still hold a huge place in my heart.


I like animals, mountaineering, rock climbing, aerials, travel, the outdoors, classical piano, handcrafts, running, reading, writing, anthropology & social theory.

In the winter months, gale storms in Svalbard can reach wind speeds of 130 km/h. Accompanied by or following snowfall, such storms can reduce visibility dramatically, more so in the winter months of the polar night. During these storms, travel is not advised.
