Anxiety is the worst

Well, here we are into the new year and I have a lot on my mind. Yesterday was a bit of a mixed bag. I went to visit my dad for the first time after being sick for a week and he cried the entire time. We have to wear masks, gowns and gloves to…

How cold is it today? Colder than Siberia!

It’s that time of year when Albertans play the “why do I live in a place that hurts my face” game. Last night, I passed out at midnight and woke up again at 6 am. That was way too early to get up. Then I made the mistake of checking the weather forecast. I had…

October Good Reads – Spooky edition!

I started this post on October 1st but it’s taken me a few days to find some new content to share with you. October already? That means — Spooky season has officially begun!

What is professional grievance mongering?

As a moderator of a few online groups, I often get hate mail thrown my way. I’m used to it. I have a pretty thick thin when it comes to online harassment and bullying. But there are some things I just simply do not tolerate and sometimes you’re damned if you do and damned if…

Indie film of the week #2: Judy (2019)

About a month ago, I decided to start watching at least one movie each week. Now that’s it’s October and spooky season is here, most of my nights are filled watching horror and sci-fi classics. It’s what I do every year. But to change things up and get out of a funk, I decided to…
