Dealing with difficult people in the workplace

It is a situation we arguably, unfortunately, are all familiar with; there is a certain individual with who we share a workplace that makes the work itself rather unpleasant, simply because of their presence. I, too, have familiarity with this situation, and in different jobs over the years. I can’t say I have a guaranteed … More Dealing with difficult people in the workplace

Are you a procrastinator? If so, read this

Procrastination is something I would consider to be comparable to the concept of being silent yet deadly. Procrastination isn’t necessarily something that is always visible, and it can be hidden without too much effort; the deadly aspect of it remains the same, however, and over time, procrastination can prove to be a disastrous force in … More Are you a procrastinator?

Here’s why you shouldn’t resist sharing how you’re feeling about something

Emotions are, in my opinion, a blessing and a curse at times. They undeniably serve a purpose, and a rather important one; they’re a means to express and communicate how we are feeling about something to someone, and without them, life itself would arguably be a pretty confusing thing to navigate. Despite the significance of … More Here’s why you shouldn’t resist sharing how you’re feeling about something

Read this to learn how to make the best homemade meatloaf

Believe it or not, meatloaf is something I have learned to appreciate within the past few years of my life. When I was younger, I absolutely despised it, and the thought of a giant loaf of meat wasn’t one that overly enticed me. I think part of the issue was that I hadn’t sampled any … More Read this to learn how to make the best homemade meatloaf

The significance of accepting what we cannot change

There are things in life that are, inevitably, beyond any means of our control.

Do you enjoy spending time by yourself? You’re not alone (no pun intended)

Once again, I would like to take a moment to recognize my witty title and give myself some warranted applause for being so darn clever. Hehe. Moving on. I am someone who significantly appreciates my alone time. If I had to categorize myself, I think I’m a relatively equal balance between being introverted and extroverted, … More Do you enjoy spending time by yourself? You’re not alone (no pun intended)

Why aren’t we talking about residential school victims anymore?

If I’m being blatantly honest, I’m getting rather irritated with the lack of discussion and media coverage pertaining to the victims of residential schools here in Canada. When news first broke about the discovery of children’s bodies buried in the ground beneath a former residential school in British Columbia, the country of Canada, collectively, along … More Why aren’t we talking about residential school victims anymore?

These are some of the best products you can purchase for your nails

My nails and I have been on quite a journey together. A transitional one at that. When I was younger, probably about ten or 11, I discovered the scrutinized habit commonly known as biting my nails.
