Interested in #music  ? So am I! And I listen to a lot of it, and generally stuff you won't find on a Top-40 list. If you want me to pass on my earworms, let me know!

New Post! Who Do We Vote For?

Times have changed and now we are no longer voting for somebody who is allowed to have independent thoughts; they are just hands to be raised during important votes. I'm not cool with that.
In 2011, when I walked behind the polling booth to look at my ballot, I saw the following names: Ronald Leung (Cons). Ken Low (Lib), Adrianne Merlo (Green), and Kennedy Stewart (NDP). I didn’t see Jac...

New Post! What went wrong at Etobicoke Centre, what the elections clerks did wrong, and what the CONSTITUENTS did wrong.

(If you ever want to stop being my friend, complain about how you didn't get to vote on election day. Just try it)
Last week, a judge overturned the 2011 election results in a small riding near Toronto called Etobicoke Centre. There, the conservative MP, Ted Opitz, had won with just 26 more votes than the Liberal ...

*PLEASE READ THIS.*

I saved 3 people from drowning before I was 16, two of whom were within arm's length of a wall. One of them, the mother was watching and didn't know. This is absolutely critical knowledge.
This enlightening article on what drowning looks like may change the way you watch your children the next time they go swimming.

THanks for sharing, Anne. I've reshared it, because I once saved a toddler from drowning. Only years later did I realize the little boy was about to drown.

New Post! Six things I learned in the first six weeks of my first "real" job.
Mid-June, I started my first "adult" job. This was a job that I had spent thousands in tuition to qualify for, and it was for a term longer than three months in the summer. This is what I le...

I suffer from what you call "impostor syndrome". I'm unemployed right now, and sometimes I hesitate to send my resume to someone because while I may be qualified for the position, there's a couple of things in the description that I'm not 100% completely familiar with. I'll send along my resume anyway but secretly hope they don't call me, because if I get an interview it'll come out that I'm really some kind of dumbass or something.

I need to get over it I guess.

Holy crap! Another new post! Two in one week! You guys are so lucky.

I write about why it is important we have a pen or sword to believe in when we try to change the world.
Today a friend of mine asked me what my opinion was of the Quebec protests. I said, and I quote, “they need to get over themselves.” This took my friend aback. The reason I said what I did is because ...

Genius Tip
#biking

Biking to the grocery store? Clip your pannier to the shopping cart so you know everything will fit! That, and you won't have the hook stabbing you, and you don't have to carry it.

I'm so happy that Weinstein stuck to his guns and did this. It is just wrong that youth wouldn't have been able to watch the movie simply it has language that they use against each other . Way to go!
 
THIS.

Ignoring the problem may make some parents feel better about how they raise their kids but it doesn't solve ANYTHING. I'm glad the producer decided to let the movie go unrated and not take out the language that tipped it over from a R rating.

I've been very happy with all the flowers I've purchased here, as well as with my interactions with the owner. The prices are very reasonable. If you live in the neighbourhood, it also makes a great destination for a community walk: you can stop at Uprising Breads, grab a snack, and then pick up some beautiful flowers before you go home!

I loved Fixed Coffee! I was recommended to visit it by Grant Lawrence, who visited on the Beetle Road Trip, and was not disappointed. Despite being all the way across the country, it was a coffee shop that made me feel like I was back home on Commercial Drive, Vancouver. A trendy interior with local indie zines and tapes (yes, tapes!) for sale alongside delicious hand-made goods, including full loaves of bread. I had a bagel with coffee. And then another bagel. And then I got up early to get another bagel and coffee before my bus left the city. And I enjoyed all these outside on a gorgeous street-side patio between the interesting Duckworth Street and the water. Still dreaming of the bagels and can't wait to come back!

Great coffe shop! The snacks are always great, the muffins are always moist, and the coffee is always delicious. It is a great location for sit-in coffee, indoors or out.

This is a great local grocery store that can address all your needs. It has the best bulk section in the area, anf has frequently great produce. It doesn't sell meat, but has everything else you might need.
