Let’s Talk About Journaling

When I was younger, my mom introduced me to writing in my diary, or what we call today journaling. It was a way to get my thoughts out on paper when I felt I couldn’t talk to anyone. I thoroughly enjoyed this because I could write anything and no one would ever see it. It […]

Let’s Not Fly Away: Flying During Covid

I love to travel, and, like many of you, dislike how Covid doesn’t let me travel. I cancelled two different trips this year because of the pandemic, one of them a four-week voyage back to the homeland (Italy). I was missing the thrill of planning a trip and seeing new places. Luckily, I still had […]

World of Warcraft: Why I Let My Boyfriend Convince Me to Play an RPG

A little over a year ago, I decided to download World of Warcraft on my Macbook Pro (these aren’t meant for gaming).  I didn’t know a lot about Warcraft, aside from the Warcraft lore my boyfriend told me (shoutout to him for being so knowledgeable).

Am I a Writer?

I’ve come across a few Instagram posts recently about imposter syndrome. Imposter syndrome is where an individual has self-doubts about their work and talents and has an internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud. And it made me wonder about my insecurities as a writer. I love to write, and it’s always been something […]

Is Bon Appetit Cancelled?

I’ve been thinking a lot about cancel culture lately, especially in regards to organizations.  I love watching food programs on YouTube (or FoodTube, as the cool kids call it), and one of my favourite channels was Bon Appetit.

Hey you, I hope things are going well. Did you move yet? I’d assume you have by the time you read this. Are you still working at your fabulous job? I mean, how could you not be there, that would be crazy. Did you get married yet (hehe)? I don’t know how you’re supposed to […]
