I QUIT MY JOB A YEAR AGO AND HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED

I contemplated it for years, spending day after day walking from the train station to the office thinking about different ways to satisfy the vocational hole being burned into my soul until finally I took a leap of faith and hit send on my resignation letter. Almost instantly I felt a huge weight being lifted... Continue Reading →

THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF CREATION

Saturday I spent the day learning to code at a free workshop hosted by Lighthouse Labs. I didn't do it because I want to become a programmer or build my own website from scratch (I have WordPress for that). I participated because after a long stint of sitting in an office under fluorescent lighting, wearing black polyester pants and answering... Continue Reading →

STOP THIS TRAIN…

"I want to get off and go home again." I want to lie with my mother on the couch at 80 Easton while she brushes her fingers through my hair. I want to have chai and toast with my parents and siblings on Saturday morning while watching Bollywood and listening to my father tell stories, I want to go camping in Old... Continue Reading →

It's a great place to... Continue Reading →

THE ZOMBIE TRAIN IS COMING…

…And I don’t want to get on. It brings with it a virus that turns you into a pawn. Some are immune, many are not. Succumbing to the outbreak, the infected you can spot. With dreary eyes and a blank expression. A mindless mass who have lost ambition. I call these bodies the working dead.... Continue Reading →

LAUGH LIKE YOU MEAN IT!

Two weeks ago my husband and I were given free tickets to one of the Just for Laughs comedy shows here in Montreal. The offer was last-minute and while my husband hesitated to say yes because such spontaneity lies outside of our daily norm, I jumped at the opportunity, quickly secured a babysitter and headed downtown. It was one... Continue Reading →
