Why (Sometimes) Housework Kicks Ass

Dear Laundry, You’re just sitting there in the basket, and I love you for it. For not whining that I haven’t been paying any attention to you. For not banging on the bathroom door while I try to pee. For not emailing me or calling me for the millionth time. No, you’re content with being […]

Gratitude, Schmatitude

I tend to avoid people that are into the self-help or self-empowerment movements, mostly because I find the concepts of self-help and self-empowerment kind of nauseating. I do, however, despite my best intentions, sometimes run into these folks nonetheless.

Books (Still) Rule: What We Can Learn From Chapters’ Demise

Ironically, if you’re looking for hope for the book’s future amidst the varying reports of doom and gloom, look no further than the fate of Chapters. The multi-floor bookstore in the heart of downtown Montreal has been a much-loved literary staple for bookworms, students, and everyone in between. Even if books aren’t your thing, it […]

Fifty Shades of Retardedness

Hey, ladies, quick question: why are we so dumb sometimes? Yes, you read right. D-U-M-B. I don’t mean as in, why are we too dumb to love our own bodies, or why are we too dumb to see the beauty in each of us? I mean just…well, dumb.
