Hamburgers, in my opinion, are the absolute shit. To clarify, when I refer to something as ‘the shit’, it means I have a grand appreciation for it, and further that I respect the hell out of it. Just in case anyone was wondering why I was referencing hamburger and shit in the same breath. Hamburgers … More Looking for a homemade hamburger recipe? Look no further
Sleep is something that is absolutely essential to the health and overall function of the human body. It provides an opportunity for our minds and bodies to rest, heal and regenerate, and without it, we’re pretty much useless, not to mention going too long without sleep can literally kill you.

Creative writing, aside from my blog, is something I sincerely wish I dabbled in more than I do.

I also … More Living with chronic illness? Read this
I would consider myself to be someone who questions a lot of things in life. I wouldn’t necessarily say I’ve always been so inquisitive about probing into matters I’m not fully versed in; my instinct to ask questions and challenge things developed later in life, and I like to think this is because I gained … More The importance of questioning
While it isn’t quite watermelon season yet here in Ontario, the time is approaching, and I and a lot of other Ontarians are arguably excited. Watermelon is the shit; it’s super refreshing on a hot day, and because it contains so much water, it is a very filling snack, which I can appreciate. The one … More Here’s how to make a mean watermelon salad
I consider myself to be someone who views both traditional medicine and naturopathic medicine to be of equal importance. I think it is important to acknowledge, however, that there are some things I believe should be tackled with traditional medicine, and others with naturopathic medicine. Certain ailments require certain treatment, and one route is better … More Should you be using elderberry?
When you work on a farm, it is safe to say that you tend to work rain or shine, to a reasonable extent. Unless the weather is so drastic it is actually preventing you from getting farm work done, the work continues as farming and agriculture are rather time-sensitive. While it makes sense that farm … More Tips for working in extreme heat
I am damn proud to say I come from a farm. I have lived on my family’s farm for my entire life, and I’ve been working on the farm since I was about 11-years-old. I realize that might sound a little jarring to anyone who doesn’t have familiarity with farming and farm families, but we … More Advice from a farm girl, to farm girls
I love food, as do most of us. My love for food arguably stems from the food my mom made for me growing up, as well as my background; I’m Hungarian and Dutch, and while the Dutch may not necessarily be known for their food, the Hungarians sure are. I follow a few food accounts … More Read this to learn how to change your potato wedge game
There have been a few instances in my life in which I have been told I have an old soul.

Do I look that … More Do you feel like you belong in a different time?
This past weekend, my sister and I went out for dinner together. Considering it may be the last time we go for dinner before I’m married, we wanted to make the most of it.

It is no secret that I have a slight obsession with Vikings and the Viking era in history.

Vikings, while a tad barbaric and uncouth, were rather remarkable people in terms … More Is ‘Vikings: Valhalla’ better than ‘Vikings’?
I have no shame in admitting I’m a sweaty bitch. I always have been, and likely always will be. Some folks sweat more than others, and I’m definitely in the sweats easily classification. When I was in high school, there were semesters in which I would have gym mid-day, followed by an English or math … More Read this if you sweat easily
Perhaps I should clarify that while the title implies that a sudden onset of selfishness amongst the general population is the case, I don’t think it is. An increase in selfish behaviour and tendencies hasn’t exactly been an ‘all of a sudden’ occurrence. This escalation in the prominence of selfishness across the board is, I … More Why are we all so selfish all of a sudden?
On Tuesday, my mom, my dad and I ventured to our local movie theatre to see the newest Top Gun movie; Top Gun: Maverick.

I could probably type one word and leave it at that for the entirety of this post, but I’m not that crude, don’t worry.

Fascination … More What do you find fascinating?

Things could always be worse, … More The harsh reality of being reminded of your flaws
I believe I first started getting acne when I was around the age of 13. I could be off by a few years; I didn’t exactly make note of when I first noticed a volcanic eruption occurring on my face, if you can imagine that. Fast-forward to now and I’m still dealing with acne. I’m … More Dealing with a stubborn zit? Read this

I will throw hands right here and now with anyone who can tell me with sincere honesty that eating raw cookie dough isn’t absolutely the best part of making homemade cookies.

Spelling is something considered to be a tremendous hurdle for a lot of us to conquer. And, really, I can see why.

Commas are vastly underrated, in my own humble opinion. Sadly, a lot of us aren’t actually familiar with how to properly use commas, which is why I think there is a little hostility towards them, but once you gain an understanding of how and further why they work, you’re smooth sailing, my friends. I thought … More Let’s hear it for the comma
Cats get so much hate and I simply do not understand why. I think the dislike for cats stems from their unpredictable mood swings and random bouts of violence, but that’s what makes them so incredibly unique and absolutely hilarious. Cats are like dogs in the sense they have very different personalities from one another, … More Let’s talk about cats
This past weekend, my bridesmaids and I partook in my bachelorette. I plan to dedicate an entirely separate post to share the glorious details of my bachelorette with all of you. Don’t you worry.

French fries are a lot like chips in the sense that you simply cannot only have one as it would defy the laws of the universe.
