Read this to learn how to boost your confidence

Confidence, in my own humble opinion, is one of those things that people either have, or don’t. There really isn’t much middle ground in the equation of confidence; it’s either there, or it isn’t.

Beware of Andrew Tate

If you haven’t heard of Andrew Tate, consider yourself fortunate, in a sense.

As terrifying as his content is, what is even more terrifying is just how … More Beware of Andrew Tate

Navigating through a lack of social interaction

A couple of evenings ago, the Brant County Federation of Agriculture held its annual meeting at my family’s farm.
