Valen-what-day? Why I think Valentine’s Day is stupid

roses are red poem

Some would say the me that existed a couple years ago was pretty cynical, not just about Valentine’s Day but about love, commitment, and feelings in general. Truth be told, I wasn’t fond of relationships, romance, hugging or anything that could be considered warm human interaction. Fast-forward 2 years, and I’m a changed woman… sort …

Weird conversations between me and my fiancée (part 1)

You are honestly the weirdest person I know. But that's why we are meant for each other.

Anyone who knows us would probably agree that he’s the sane one who keeps me grounded, while I’m the psycho who talks aimlessly with no filter. I blame it on the writer side of me. If I don’t say the things that immediately pop into my head, I’ll probably forget them (which he would argue …

7 things that I consider a total waste of time

waste of time quote, quote about wasting time, life is short quote

1. Crawling through snowy traffic Ever since I started driving and working, every winter I had to deal with snowy traffic. At all the companies I’ve worked for, I was never (let me repeat never) given the flexibility to work from home during snow storms… at least not without being given a hard time …

Only in Toronto… How a morning of errands can turn into hell

Take it one day at a time, one day at a time quote, several days attach me at once quote

When people hear about the crazy things that happen to downtown newbs, they often roll their eyes and echo “only in Toronto.” Things like crowded streets, impossible parking, and construction areas are normal for travelling downtown. But “apparently” so is being greeted with spit on your windshield (ew!), the middle finger from a total stranger …

It seems people don’t know basic bathroom etiquette.  Here’s my list of things you really shouldn’t see in the women’s bathroom. What’s your list? #1 – A man Whether it’s a …

Astrology had a sarcastic sense of humour today

gemini sign, gemini astrology, gemini symbol

I don’t take horoscopes too seriously, but I do have a horoscope app on my phone, which I read most mornings before work. It’s only in good fun since the daily predictions are always so vague that you could interpret them to fit any situation in your life. But today, my horoscope was pretty specific. …

What gives people the right to… (list the stupid things people do here)

common sense is like deodorant, people who need it most never use it, common sense quote

As an avid people-watcher and observer of life’s unusual moments, I often see things that I don’t understand. Things that people say and do that make you wonder how much their parents paid their 2nd grade teachers not to flunk them for the third time. Admit it. You’ve seen some annoying people and wondered the …

Office Space in the real world – admit it, similar shit’s happened to you

Last weekend I watched the Office Space movie, a film set in the late 90s about 3 working guys who downright hate their jobs. If you’ve ever been stuck in a stuffy cubicle reporting to 8 bosses who nag you about your company’s version of TPS reports, this is a must-watch-again movie. Sure, the movie is …

change is the end result of all true learning. quote about change and learning

#1 – Don’t say “he’s not my type.” You really never know. Sometimes the person you least expect to end up with turns out to be the one person who will love you like no other. #2 – It’s okay to puke after drinking. Everyone’s done it. When you spend most of your days working …

Am I the only one tired of New Year’s resolutions?

New Year Resolution

Time to be honest. I’ll probably never stop cussing or quit drinking. And I’ll definitely never exercise everyday or lose enough weight. My previous New Year’s resolutions never stood a chance. Why? Because I didn’t care enough to stick to them. Earlier this week, the world said goodbye to 2012 and celebrated the beginning of …

That time of year again… why Christmas isn’t my favourite holiday

Christmas be over

It’s no surprise to anyone who knows me that I really don’t like Christmas. Just to be clear, I have the utmost respect for the religious representation of the event. What annoys me though is the commercialism and hyper-happiness of the whole fiasco. Every year, friends and co-workers try to bring me into the Christmas …

When is it ever okay not to flush?!?

Funny Flush Toilet

The other day, a friend posted a disturbing yet funny message on Facebook about people who don’t flush the toilet: “I’d like to know what goes through a woman’s head when she uses a public bathroom and decides NOT to flush. So effing dirty.” Not only did this bring back memories of my former workplace, …
