- Need A Hand? -

It's often difficult to start writing a piece where you just want to yell out a point and can't really figure out how to create context or use intriguing transition sentences to "build up a story". What can the audience relate to? How can I introduce the subject without losing the audience's interest? God damnit, how the hell am I going to come up with a promising thesis? I'm sure you've all been in a situation where you've been lost trying to write a paper on the Cold War in Grade 10 History or lost trying to draft an essay on the subject "Why?" for...

- My Journey, OUR Journey -

“How much is one person allowed to fall apart?” I find myself asking this question from the moment I wake up right until the very final breath of consciousness before the lights go out. I, like many others, live with generalized anxiety as well as bipolar disorder. Hot, right? Since learning this back in 2016 I’ve used vulnerability as a defence mechanism in order to not feel judged or criticized. So yes, I’m fully aware that my actions and behaviours are crippling and I’m openly accepting this in order to break the stigma that those who suffer from these disorders don’t...

Sorry pal, “2018 You” is not a new you, you’re still very much the same you.We can’t erase our mistakes, but we can learn from them. We can’t dwell on our past accomplishments, but we can use them as stepping stones to achieve more and help others do so as well. The whole notion of the New Year erecting a “New You” is so perplexing (Pegasus) to me - Why do we want to start from scratch? We experience waves of success to challenge our humility and situations of learning to challenge our tenacity. Each year we grow, we develop, we...

- Maybe, Just Maybe -

Maybe the leaves turn red because they’re bleeding out and dying. Maybe the wolves howl because they once were united with the moon and now the distance hurts them. Maybe the waves crash because they are angry that the sky is only a reflection in its eyes. Maybe the crimson red blood flowing out of your wrists isn’t going to hurt anymore. Maybe you’ll stop comparing yourself to an elephant. Maybe you’ll stop imagining his hands around your neck. Maybe you won’t close your eyes to see him standing over you. Maybe when someone puts their hands in the air...

- It Just Didn't Sound Like You -

About 2 months ago I made a pretty radical decision to not only move out of my parents' house, but move across the country. I went to Vancouver in August with the intent of visiting friends and family, and returned back to Toronto only to start packing for my first one-way flight ever. Let me walk you through what happened... I fell in love with the west a couple years ago when I visited my sister on Vancouver Island. I visited again last year and my interest grew stronger. I came back again this past August and thought "What the hell, why not try?" and...
