When I was in university, I endured a phase during which I would get my nails professionally done every few weeks or so for roughly two years. When I say I would get my nails done, I’m not talking about a basic manicure; I would get bio gel nails. For anyone unfamiliar with bio gel … More Bio gel nails: yes or no?
A few days ago, I slept in. This happens to the best of us, but because I could literally sleep through a bloody hurricane, it tends to happen to me more often than I would like it to. One of my responsibilities with the farm is work affiliated with our poultry barn, which includes walking … More The consequences of projecting
Perhaps this isn’t the most optimistic post I’ve written, but that’s okay. I would be lying if I said all of my blog posts address positive material, and today’s post is no exception. When I was attempting to come up with a topic for today’s post, my mind wandered into the realm of pet peeves, … More What gets your blood boiling?
Beavers have been in my life ever since I was a child. Perhaps I should stipulate that, for the sake of this post, when I say beaver, I’m making reference to the animal. Not the other version of a beaver. Moving on. Our irrigation ponds on the farm are home to beavers, some more than … More Let’s hear it for beavers
I thought for today’s post I would provide you, my wonderful readers, with a list of men I happen to appreciate. Is it possible you really don’t give a flying fuck about men I like? Yes. Am I going to proceed and compose this post regardless? You bet your sweet ass I am. The men … More Let’s hear it for these men
I recently took on a new tutoring client. The client in question is 10 years of age, and, actually, they just turned 10 a couple of weeks ago. When this client’s mom first reached out to me inquiring about tutoring their child, I’ll admit I was a little hesitant to take on a student so … More Talking to children: a how-to guide
I am fully aware that I’m a little late hopping on the Stranger Things bandwagon. The show has been around for a hot minute, and while I’ve been wanting to watch it for a while now, I’ve been in a vicious cycle of watching and rewatching Vikings, Vikings: Valhalla and The Last Kingdom. If you’ve … More Is ‘Stranger Things’ worth the hype?
As I sat down to write this post, I asked Blaine for some inspiration. First, he suggested writing a post about cats, but because I’ve dedicated a handful of posts to these majestic creatures already, I asked him for another suggestion. Here we are. Penguins, ladies and gentlemen. I fucking love penguins. I can’t say … More Read this to learn more about penguins
It isn’t a secret that I have bowels that would challenge the likes of nuclear weaponry. My digestive tract is absolutely fucked, and this isn’t an exaggeration; since I have recovered from my eating disorder, I’ve had more than my share of stomach-related issues, and years later, they’re still with me, making their presence quite … More Natural remedies for a gut on the warpath
Picky eaters aren’t exactly the best people to deal with when it comes to cooking for them. Attempting to determine a meal that a picky eater will actually eat is a feat enough in itself, let alone consistently coming up with dishes and creations to provide them with. Blaine, my husband, is a picky eater. … More Dealing with picky eaters
I feel like a lot of us have misconceptions about salads. When we hear the word ‘salad’, we arguably visualize leafy greens with some sort of dressing, probably oil and vinegar if I had to guess. This form of salad, in my own humble opinion, is a wee bit bland and boring. Well, actually, not … More Check out this epic summer salad
As promised, here is the second component of the types of coffee in all its glory post. After I wrote yesterday’s post, I realized that a lot of you might think I’m slightly deranged, not only because of who I am as a person, but also because I stated that I only drink black coffee. … More How well do you know your coffee? (part two)
Coffee is arguably one of those things in life that a lot of us refuse to go without.

(part one)
Today wasn’t the best day I’ve had. I should probably mention that I write my posts for my blog two days out, so by the time you’re reading this, the bad day has (hopefully) passed. That isn’t to say I won’t experience an additional bad day sometime soon, because without coming across as pessimistic, tis … More Dealing with bad days
A few nights ago, Blaine and I decided to watch ‘The Gray Man’ via Netflix. I would like to take full credit for recommending this particular film to Blaine; he hadn’t heard anything about it, but once I told him I had heard plenty of good things, we decided to give it a go. ‘The … More Have you seen ‘The Gray Man’?
A few nights ago, I was mindlessly scrolling through Facebook videos when I came across one that seriously pissed me off. The video in question depicted Natalia Dyer, an actress arguably best known for her role in the television series titled Stranger Things, and how she apparently has a progressive form of Anorexia. I don’t … More The danger of assuming eating disorders
Blaine has a profound love for chocolate pie. He always has, and arguably always will, although I should make mention of the fact that the version of chocolate pie Blaine would arguably kill for is his late grandmother’s recipe. Blaine’s mom hasn’t yet given me the recipe, but one day, I would like to take … More Here’s how to make chocolate pie
Allow me to clarify the title of this post. Blaine, my husband, is a quirky guy, to say the least.

I will be honest in admitting that the sole reason I purchased my first diffuser approximately five years ago was that I thought they were cool. No word of a lie, I went out and bought one of these fuckers because I found the combination of the vapour they release and the changing colour features … More Should you be using a diffuser?
After reading the title of this post, I figured I should probably stipulate that when I say contractions, I am referring to the grammatical kind, not the pains that are experienced once a woman is in labour. Had I not stipulated which version of the word contraction I am discussing in this post, I may … More Understanding contractions
Now that Blaine and I are far more settled in our home than we were a few weeks ago, I’ve started giving some thought to home decor and how exactly I would like to begin dabbling in the creative process of decorating. I shouldn’t say I’m just beginning this creative journey, I suppose; a few … More What is your ~aesthetic~?
When I sat down to write this post, I asked myself a question I think I’ve uttered more than any other in my life; ‘what am I going to blog about today?’ Sometimes, ideas hit me like a freight train and we are off and running. Other days, I stare at my laptop screen for … More Remembering lost loved ones
So far, this year has not been one for the books in terms of farming. It’s been shit, to put it plainly, and looking at the long-term forecast, things aren’t improving anytime soon. Depending on crops, growing seasons and periods differ for farmers here in Ontario, as well as everywhere else in the world. Some … More Enjoy eating? Read this
I got my ears pierced, to the best of my recollection, when I was about 10-12 years of age. I can’t remember exactly how old I was, but I do remember going to Claire’s in the Brantford mall with my mom to get them pierced. I cried like a little bitch, but it was worth … More Getting your helix pierced? Read this

For many of us, Chinese food is our go-to hangover food. Personally, I enjoy eating Chinese food regardless if I am hung over or not.

I’ll be honest in admitting that prior to living in my own house, I kind of underestimated vinegar in terms of its cleaning abilities. I was fully aware that vinegar is essentially a powerhouse in terms of what it can do for a variety of things while living with my mom and dad, but because … More Let’s hear it for vinegar
The idea of keeping one’s nose out of someone else’s business is not, in any way, shape or form, a new concept. It’s been around for quite a while now, although despite its prehistoric origins, it seems to me as though a lot of us are blissfully unaware of this ideology and could benefit from … More Mind your business
A few nights ago, before we snuggled up in bed, Blaine and I were browsing through Netflix titles, once again fighting the endless battle of determining what to watch.
