Growing up as a ’90s Kid

Do you remember growing up in the ‘90s or early 2000s? Was it filled with good, bad, or downright embarrassing moments? The barrettes, the furbies, the denim, everything? Oh, and let’s not forget the collection of VHS movies.  I recently watched Kid 90 on Prime Video the other day. It takes a look at young […]

How to be a Tourist in Your Own City

As things begin to open up and I start to leave my house more, I figured this would be a great time to explore my city. Honestly, when you think of Winnipeg, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Usually, it’s a friggin’ cold place to live, and there’s not much else going on […]

I’m Addicted to My Phone

Hey Winnipeg, You Okay?

It’s midnight; I just finished submitting a paper (16 minutes before the deadline), and rather than writing this blog, I started scrolling through Insta stories. But instead of the usual barrage of cute babies, reposts, and so-so TikToks, I’m swiping through nurses crying, anti-maskers striking, bigoted gym owners spouting bullshit, and all of this happening […]

September: A Few of My Favourite Things

September. ‘Tis the season of pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, and scary movie marathons. While I love summer for those warm sunny days and my birthday (obviously), I really enjoy fall. Obviously, fall officially begins on September 21st, but as we all know, the first of September is a good sign of the cool air […]

Are You Doing Too Much?: A Fun Guide to Time Management

When I was in university, I took a full course load, worked full-time, and had a part-time gig on the side. For some reason, being that busy made me commit to my studies; I knew if I messed up, I would be forced to either restart or honestly, quit altogether.  The other day, someone asked […]

My Summer Playlist

Every summer, there is an album or song that defines those warm sunny days in the city, on the beach, or wherever you spend time relaxing. I love summer music because it reminds you of an easy time and you can revisit it any time of the year when you need something simple during a […]

Black Canadian Creators You Should Be Following

There is so much I’d like to say about what’s happening right now. I’ve written pages and pages about the protests, my own acknowledgement of my white privilege, and how I haven’t been a good ally.  I was scrolling through my Instagram and became suddenly much more aware of all the white faces I saw.
