The Inspiration to Conquer (The Day I Met Arnold Schwarzenegger)

  Arnold Schwarzenegger is my hero. Since I was a child my cousins and I obsessed over his movies: Predator, Terminator, Commando, and all the classics. We used to pretend he stole his muscles from us and strike poses—Mr. Olympia style. In the sixth grade I watched Terminator 2, Judgment Day, every day after school for … Continue reading The Inspiration to Conquer (The Day I Met Arnold Schwarzenegger)


Open Letter to the Liberal Members of Parliament

Subject: Liberal's Tax Planning Proposals September 8th, 2017 Good evening, This is the first letter I have ever written to a Member of Parliament, and I am sorry it is not propitious.

To The Doormat In Me

You have the right to say no. Never apologize for your decisions. Explain yourself only at your discretion. Never feel pressure to defend your choice. You do not need a reason to put yourself first. Do not starve yourself to feed others. Do not fear loneliness. Serve you every day. Say “no” today. Say it … Continue reading To The Doormat In Me

Social Media Problems Over Benefits: The Addiction

My faith in humanity has decreased over the way people act, and react, on social media. The constant cynicism, the rants, the over-opinionated and nagging comments, the narcissistic posts, the illusion of perfectionism—it’s all too much. We have forgotten ourselves due to the fact that we are vastly over driven. We have forgotten compassion, courtesy, … Continue reading Social Media Problems Over Benefits: The Addiction

Embrace The Crazy

"She's crazy. And just when you think you've reached the bottom of her craziness, there's a  crazy underground garage." I recently wrote an article titled “The Cure for Crazy.” I wrote it as a random spoof, but truth is many people judge “crazy” negatively—I know I have. In today’s critical society, we label anyone with a bit … Continue reading Embrace The Crazy

The Cure for Crazy

So I’ve been acting especially crazy lately and I’m not sure why. I’ve been monitoring my sugar intake, eating healthy, exercising regularly; but nothing seems to calm my inner-hyper-weird. My co-worker predicts it’s the moon. So I double checked, and it is in fact a full moon tonight. Coincidence? I think not! According to ancient philosophers, … Continue reading The Cure for Crazy

Maple Leaf Tulip – FAIL

Ottawa’s Tulip Festival highlighted the new “maple leaf” tulip over the weekend. In my opinion this new attraction is an enormous nosedive flop of a miscarriage. It was designed by The National Capital Commission and the Kingdom of the Netherlands; intended to mimic the Canadian Flag.  This is a picture of a Canadian flag: This … Continue reading Maple Leaf Tulip – FAIL

To My Friends and Family (In Case of Death)

In the words of Jerry Seinfeld: According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two! Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy. Dear friends and family, … Continue reading To My Friends and Family (In Case of Death)

My Cynical Response to all You Dick-Buckets on POF

Hey blankus, blankus, banana-nana-bo-blankus, You seem like an interesting cat! Perrrrrrr. I like your pictures, your skin looks amazing. My skin is not the greatest, but my doctor says that should be clearing up any day now. Those thick thighs though, and that bulge in your pants. . . Well let’s just say that swell is … Continue reading My Cynical Response to all You Dick-Buckets on POF
