We Forgot to Move to the Suburbs

“It’s a great location for a young couple, walking distance to downtown, to bus routes, bars and restaurants. The perfect STARTER home” That was how our house was sold to us as a newlywed couple in their twenties. 18 years and 2 kids later, we’re still here and not planning on moving any time soon. […]

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. […]

How Big Changes Make simple Tasks Difficult

Sitting down and writing something of substance is something I have not done since I graduated from university.

Writing Slumps Suck

Mondays. They hold the promise to have an excellent, refreshing, and motivating day. I thought I had all the cards aligned to have such a day. Alas, I was wrong. I had a “free day off” from work today, and it started off promising. I had a scheduled massage, ate a healthy breakfast, and went […]

I’m Addicted to My Phone

I’m addicted to my phone. When I wake up, the first thing treated to my dishevelled hair is my phone, and then after a few minutes — or twenty — of scrolling, I’ll wish my bf good morning. If it’s a weekend, you can find me scrolling through the social media apps until laying in […]

When I was younger, I wanted to be a dentist and then later on, I wanted to become a marine biologist — that was after I watched this horrific documentary about dolphins, but that’s a story for another day. So, I decided I wanted to become a marine biologist, and that would be my future, […]
