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 […]

P.S. I Love Rom-Coms

We have a confession: we both love a good romantic comedy. And with Valentine’s Day coming up this Sunday, it’s definitely rom-com season (second only to Christmas rom-com season).

TBR: The Best To-Do List

I love to read. I can read anything from classic lit to horror to manga. One year, I managed to read over 50 books! That means I read a book every week (which was true at the time). I attempted to make that goal again last year. After all, I knew I would be home […]

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 […]

Why I Love My Body… And Food

For years, I’ve struggled with loving my body. Ever since I finished university, I’ve been struggling to get back into shape, comparing my body now to the body I had in my early twenties.

How to Combat Lack of Motivation

Do you ever just have days where you feel low, with little to no motivation? I have them almost all the time. Perhaps it’s the summer burnout or the fact that we’re living in a global pandemic, but I’ve been feeling low lately.  Last week, I felt like I was on top of the world! […]
