Why I Wear a Poppy

Every November I take a moment on the 11th to remember. No matter where I am. Every November, I buy a poppy. In the last couple of weeks, I've had a few people ask me why I wear one. Mostly friends who are new to Canada and don't know about Remembrance Day. I struggled to... Continue Reading →

Tihar

Currently in Nepal, those who are Hindu, are celebrating the festival of Tihar (similar to Diwalli in India). This was written last year, when I was in Nepal, after my first visit to a village, which just happened to occur during this festival. I had been invited to the office on the first day of...

Travel Therapy

In the last few months, it's become habit for me to check out cheap flights around the world. And, when I have a little time off from school, I start getting an itch to travel. So in early September, I came across a seat sale and booked a flight to Chicago. It was my first time... Continue Reading →

I am Not Tired

After the vote that took place the the United States this Saturday I was shocked, furious and disappointed. I have spent hours pouring over articles, watching things unfold. Waiting, hoping for the right outcome. While I was reading, I came across this quote: "Women are strong, and we are perpetually resilient, but we are exhausted.... Continue Reading →

While other provinces saw snow (I got a snapchat from my brother on Friday golfing in the snow - welcome to Canada haha). However, this isn't exactly... Continue Reading →

Build a Better Boat

"Now and then I let it go, I ride the waves I can't control I'm learnin' how to build a better boat" One day this summer I was driving home, I don't remember exactly where I had been. And this song came on the radio. A new song from Kenny Chesney. I'm definitely a country... Continue Reading →

September 11th

My memories of September 11th 2001 are vague at best. I was 6, having just started grade 1. I remember my dad picking my brother and I up from school, a rarity. My parents didn't want us taking the bus home in case other kids were talking about what had happened. They were worried we... Continue Reading →

Hey You

This is an unsent letter I wrote to a friend of mine. Some of this they already know, some they don't. Maybe one day I'll actually send it, but for now, here it is.  Hey you. You are a pretty special person. I’ve know that for a while. I actually wrote that down a month... Continue Reading →
