Things we’ll do this month: May

So, I’m a day late in even starting this post and another day late in finishing it. That’s mostly because it took me a day to even accept that we are already entering the fifth month of the year then another day to get over it. Which is funny because …

Restoring faith in human nature

I saw this tweet the other day and it so perfectly articulated something I only kind of even knew that I wanted to say myself. “If you are losing faith in human nature, go out and watch a marathon.” – Kathrine Switzer #bmovm#runvanpic.twitter.com/57frc9Kx9C — Vancouver Marathon (@BMOVanMarathon) April 14, 2018 …

Does practice make perfect?

I feel like I’ve been pretty clear about my intention to write more online. For the past couple of years, I’ve been writing, but not so much in this or other spaces where I use my name to claim my work. Most of my work has just been kept relatively …

The underdog

Monday morning after Super Bowl, I opted for the Oh She Glows Pink Power Detox Smoothie We woke up today and the Philadelphia Eagles are the Super Bowl champions. It’s strange. I never saw that coming, but hey, it really doesn’t make a difference in my life. I once dated …

Super Sunday

I’ve been looking forward to today. One might say it’s what got me through the week. Not only is it the Super Bowl, but it’s also my Mom’s birthday and we’re taking the opportunity to celebrate both at our house. I’ve always wanted to have a Super Bowl party so …

Is listening to an audiobook the same as reading?

Full disclosure: I’ve never listened to an audiobook. I like my audio in small doses. Short bursts like songs and podcasts. (I generally steer away from any podcast that runs longer than thirty to sixty minutes, though I have a few exceptions.) I just don’t really think I could enjoy …

My favourite Friday

For the longest time, I’ve wanted to start doing roundup posts, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it for the dumbest reason of all – I couldn’t come up with a name. See? Ridiculous. But in complete honesty, this isn’t even the first time not having a good name …

Things we’ll do this month: February

I’m really excited that one of my favourite months is here, but I am also feeling a little resistant to the backlash that poor January has been receiving. I mean, come on, guys. January brought you a whole new year. That can’t be all bad. And while it has certainly …

The life story lessons

Happy new year! I know it’s late and I know it’s tired, but in my first 2018 appearance here, I just had to say it. I, for one, was super excited for 2018. Not that I was anxious to get out of 2017 – it was a perfectly good year …

2017 in review

Yesterday, I looked back at the year in big news and events. Writing that was just an appetizer before the delicious main course of this post. There is only one thing I love more than looking back on the year that’s ending and that’s looking forward to the year ahead. …
