Second Time Around

Second Time Around

I have noticed as I’ve gotten older, that looking back and reflecting has become a hobby. I tend to tell the same stories over and over again, or I will reminisce with friends anytime we get together. Old stories have a way of comforting us, connecting us. It doesn’t help that I get Facebook reminders of memories of […]

Evolution for Kids Revisited

Evolution for Kids Revisited

Okay, this one is going to get a little weird but I’ve had a lot of time to think about where we are going, and what this existence of ours all means. Plus I’ve watched a lot of sci-fi flix and conspiracy theory documentaries. So let your freak flag fly and get ready for a […]

Who’s Your Data?

Who’s Your Data?

The other day I bought a wallet, it was from a company called Bellroy, they are a great product. Sleek, stylish and doesn’t make a lump in your pocket that throws out your back every time you sit down. I bought the card pocket, it’s a small wallet that suits my needs. I love their […]

Stay.

Stay.

Growing up and growing apart. Once best friends, now occasional texts to promise to get together. Loved ones separated by provinces, water, cities, and distance, find a common ground. Fate made us siblings, but hearts made us friends. The social landscape may change, but the people stay the same. Stay. Getting bigger, becoming a woman. […]

What I’ve Learned From Writing Over 200 Blog Posts

What I’ve Learned From Writing Over 200 Blog Posts

The last blog I wrote was my 200th post, I didn’t realize this until I had posted it. I had written a 100th blog post when I crossed that line, but I missed this milestone by one. In the beginning, I started slow and needed to find my footing. My brother had told me I […]

Positively Negative

Positively Negative

What is it about being negative that is so hard to shake? It’s like junk food for the social mind. People love to bitch. I have had issues in the past with being pessimistic. I still do. But I try and fight the urge to complain about stuff. But if you talk to my wife […]

Rooms

Rooms

I used to be more involved in social media. But things change and we get complacent, our priorities shift. It happens to everyone. We see our friends and family less and we tend to become a little more selfish and pull into our own little cocoons. This is normal. But it isn’t a way to live […]

Echoes

Echoes

Hello, hello, helloooo… A reverberating sound, a similar image, an event, a traumatic experience, a life lesson. Everything has happened before, history repeats itself, this is a given. We tend to do the same things over and over again. Do we learn from our mistakes? Sometimes. Do we take those lessons and avoid the same […]

My Five

My Five

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn I like quotes and this one has always been one of my favourites. I thought I would look into the five people I spend most of my time with and see if it lives up to its word. […]

Dangerous Youth

Dangerous Youth

Do you remember when you were a kid? When I was a kid there was no internet of any kind. I got most of my prepubescent entertainment from being outside, riding my bike, catching bugs and playing sports, I was rarely in the house. My daughter likes to play on her computer, doing stop-motion animations and […]
