Ten Minutes A Day For A Better Life

In my last year of high school (back when Ontario still had OAC, aka Grade 13), I dated a guy who was a bit of a nouveau-hippie. He was super into yoga, drum circles, and meditation. I was decidedly... not. I remember feeling annoyed one night near the end of our short-lived relationship when he ...

Loving It: My New Duvet

Few things make me more irritable than not being able to sleep. The second I start tossing and turning, I'm immediately angry. If I'm too hot or cold, or my legs are itchy, or I just can't turn off my brain... it just all... UGH. And don't you dare disturb my slumber. Because of my ...

Marvel Marathon Madness

I feel like this is tantamount to blasphemy for a lot of people, but I used to be pretty lukewarm on all things Marvel. Sure, I enjoyed Joss Whedon's Avengers movies, and I loved Jessica Jones, but I couldn't be bothered to watch any of the other movies or TV shows. That is, until I ...

Living in a dorm was a big change for me. As an only child, I'd never shared ...

"Get me somebody. Anybody. And get me someone while I'm waiting!" Unfortunately I'm not (even close to) enough of a big shot ...

Resolution Help

For years, I didn't make resolutions. I was tired of making them only to ditch them after about a week, so I just decided to forget the whole thing. But this year, I'm determined that my resolutions are going to stick. I think my problem in past years was a lack of tools to support me. ...
