My *Very Real* Break Up With Kanye West

“We need to talk. I feel like we’re just not on the same page anymore.” “That’s exactly what I’m talking about. I care about us, and you only care about yourself. You always act like you’re so much better than me and it’s starting to really piss me off.” “So, what? We’re done? I just…

Here’s What I Learned From Not Drinking For A Month

For the month of February I decided to take on a new challenge… to stop drinking with the Canadian Cancer Society’s newest fundraising mission: DRY FEB. While not enjoying a glass of wine on Valentine’s Day, and not being able to have a beer at an NHL game on reading week was difficult… now 24…

10 Things You’ll Learn While Writing Your First Book

1. Some of what you write is going to be shit, and that’s okay. You can delete these run-on, no-good, sentences later – when you come up with something better… keep track of ALL IDEAS (even if they’re silly, even if you’re on the bus, even if you’re in the shower). Bonus Tip: TAKE A…

When You’re Not Sad, But You’re Also Not Happy

There’s that feeling… you know… when you’re not really sad, but you’re also not really happy… It’s kind of this in-between state that can’t be defined, or explained, or imagined, unless you’ve experienced it for yourself… And even then, it’s hard to identify, or to notice, and to change. Let’s call this feeling… limbo. There…

To My Boyfriend On His Birthday

It’s two days till my boyfriends 23rd birthday, and as an avid writer, I knew I would likely need to write him a card, an article,  or something cheap-but-romantic, like that… to go along with a gift. After all, there’s got to be a million poetic things I could say to him right?! Ex: Like…

A Lesson In Losing Kyle

I was a senior in High School when I lost Kyle. I was too young to cope, and he was too young to go. I had never lost anyone… Not an aunt, a grandparent, or a second cousin. No death, no funeral, no loss, had ever prepared me to lose Kyle. I didn’t lose Kyle…
