Anyone who has experienced the inability to fall asleep can attest to how insanely frustrating it is. You are tired, mentally and physically, though despite your fatigue, as soon as your head hits the pillow, your thoughts begin racing and you can’t seem to muster any tranquility in order to get some much needed shut … More Can’t sleep?

The sensations we experience when we are feeling inadequate aren’t exactly pleasant ones. Some that come to mind include inferiority, hopelessness, helplessness, isolation, and sadness, and that’s only naming a few. Feeling as though we are inadequate, or, in simpler terms, not good enough, is truly a debilitating sentiment. It is frustrating because while we … More How to grapple with feelings of inadequacy
Yesterday afternoon, I received a text from Bell reminding me that today is #BellLetsTalkDay. I made a mental note to be sure to use the hashtag across social media platforms as I normally do. Last night, I got to thinking about the matter and realized I should probably put my thoughts onto some virtual paper. … More #BellLetsTalkDay
I think it is safe to say that honesty is a rather important aspect of any serious relationship. Without honesty, trust cannot build, not really exist whatsoever, and without either of these things, a relationship certainly wouldn’t be a healthy one. In fact, there may not be a relationship at all. In addition to being … More The importance of utmost transparency in serious relationships
Bad habits are easy enough to unconsciously undertake. Small, irregular behaviours, in time, become more prominent and repetitive, unfortunately resulting in, often times, a habit we wish we hadn’t picked up. Poor habits are understandably something all of us have some experience with, and I would wager that more of us dabbled in shitty habits … More Did 2020 prompt you to start a bad habit?
Similar to my post the other day listing what Rotten Tomatoes deemed as the best flicks of the former year, I thought I would write a post regarding the best books of 2019. Books, to me, are even more subjective than movies are, so as I stated in the best movies post, keep in mind … More The best books of 2019
Christmas songs, for many people, are a touchy subject, I would say. That might sound a little odd outright, but hear me out. Christmas music is absolutely an essential component to the holiday, but I would argue a lot of us have mixed feelings about it depending on how early we start hearing these songs, … More My top Christmas songs
When I first started blogging in my second year of university, the thought of posting daily, still, this many years later, was the furthest thing from my mind. Yet here we are. Daily posts to my blog are something I take a lot of pride in doing. I’m not familiar with any other blogs that … More The reality of being a daily blogger
Reading can be a truly incredible experience. Depending on the text you’re reading, and further, your level of interest in said text, reading can be an experience that isn’t easily forgotten. On the other hand, it can also be a nightmare if you’re reading a book that fails to peak your interest. Reading is something … More Three signs that book you’re reading is a keeper
Designating something in our lives that inspires us and evokes creativity is so important. Yet, I question how many of us have been able to identify our own muse. Finding whatever we’re passionate about can be a bit of a gray area. Perhaps we’re overwhelmed with focalizing one specific passion because we have several; perhaps … More The importance of finding your muse
It has come to my attention as of late that the world really is going down the tubes. An incredibly optimistic statement, I know. We’re all familiar and well-versed in the rising occurrences of violence, terrorism, tragedy and hate, which are all concerning enough on their own. But, something else that is escalating in terms … More Where did all the nice people go?
