Deadweight

Have you ever reached a point in life where you want to just cut out human deadweight? I’m a Facebook person. I have been since 2007. Although I do have Twitter and Instagram accounts, I don’t use them nearly as much. I always liked the more personal connection I had with friends vs. “followers.” For a long time I kept everyone in my friends list … Continue reading Deadweight

215 out of 4,100

I’ll keep this brief. The bodies of 215 children, some as young as 3 years old, were recently discovered in unmarked graves at a former B.C. residential school site. This most recent discovery is part of a much larger and inexcusable pattern of deaths, by disease or “accidents” in Canadian Residential Schools. The First Nations Child and Family Caring Society reports that they have identified … Continue reading 215 out of 4,100

What Allies Owe…

When I first started this blog, it was meant to be a dumping ground for everything I had opinions on, funny stuff, sarcasm, whatever-the-fuck. And it has been that, definitely. But there’s a trend going on for me that I’ve noticed more recently, and that’s issues to do with the fallout of systemic racism, violence, and injustice. And these have become very important issues to … Continue reading What Allies Owe…

Dissociating My Life Away

There’s an electric feeling in the air when a storm is coming. The charged atmosphere. The distant smell of dark, rain-soaked clouds that drift ever closer. Dark, snarling and flashing clouds. The pleasant breeze that flower petals and fluff danced in now turns angry, violent and haphazard. The firmament flashes, like a white-hot blade slicing through the sky. Crack! Rumble! Furious rain lashes down, and … Continue reading Dissociating My Life Away

Self-Help for Anxious People – Your Guide to Less Giving a Shit

No, you don’t need a million books. Trust me on this. A good many self-help books largely just help you dump your money into the author’s pocket. After years (so many years) of therapy, I feel at least a little bit qualified to condense what I’ve learned into something that may help people. At least, these are the things I suggest when friends come to … Continue reading Self-Help for Anxious People – Your Guide to Less Giving a Shit

Dear Diary? Sigh.

I have literally no wisdom, research or wit here. Honestly, I thought that without the pressure of work I would blog more, but my brain has been mush. Figuratively, of course, though between headaches and fogginess I wouldn’t be surprised if it was literally mush too. I have this concept in my head that everything I write has to be just that, well thought out, … Continue reading Dear Diary? Sigh.

Dear Diary – 2020

I keep sitting down to write out posts, and I have, let’s see… at last count, 21 drafts. Other bloggers, do you also have a fuck-ton of unfinished drafts, or are you normal? I’m frustrated with myself because I really wanted to commit to this, and there are a million and one things I could write about right now. But the fact is, they’re all … Continue reading Dear Diary – 2020
