The Ultimate Gift Guide from A Part-Time Writer

Do you remember going through the Wish List catalogue that Sears (RIP) would release each year? I would be so excited to go through every page and circle everything that I hoped my parents to get me that year. I’m laughing to myself, thinking about how ridiculous and expensive that wish list was when I […]

Let’s Accomplish Everything in 2 Months

First of all, how is it November already? Second, how is everyone doing these days?  I had high hopes to have accomplished a lot by this time of the year, like completing (or almost completing) my 2021 Reading Challenge (I’m 28 books behind) and watching 31 days of horror flicks (again, I barely made it […]

What Scares Me The Most

It’s spooky season starting this Friday. Goblins, ghouls, ghosts, and all the other Halloween favourites are all very frightening, but do you know what scares me the most? Not being successful. And I don’t mean that in my career, but kind of just life in general. I fear that I won’t be able to pay […]

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?

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 […]

What They Don’t Tell You About Road Trips

Road trips are always fun when you begin the trip. You have your playlist at the ready, a giant pile of snacks in the back seat, and a list of wacky roadside attractions to take ironic pictures with along the way. All this made even better by the excitement of a vacation at the end […]

Guilty Shopping Spree

When I was younger, I worked at a fast-food joint, and for the entire summer, I spent my paycheck on clothes, food, and random stuff I didn’t need. I had no concept of saving, but I didn’t care because “I was young and enjoying life.” Even as I got older, my shopping habits didn’t change. […]

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 […]

An Open Letter to my Future Self

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 […]

Enough is Enough

All around the world, people are marching against racism, and I stand with them. It’s tough to write this for a few reasons. I want you to understand my intentions, to know we support the fight against racism, and I’m tired of hearing what BIPOCs are still going through. It’s disgusting; why is this happening? […]
