I've been having a hard time articulating this topic but it's one that keeps coming up for me and how I approach my life, especially my thought patterns (which is important to my mental health). I grew up in a Christian household, attending church most Sundays until I was about 13 years old. I used … Continue reading Who Is In Control, You or Jesus/the Universe?
Obviously, it hasn't been a stellar decade for racism in America. Police shootings, Trump etc., let's just say I'm not running over the border to be black in America any time soon. Naively, I've leaned towards the opinion that it's not as bad in Toronto, Canada. Not here, I'd think in my head (well I … Continue reading Is being black depressing me (more)?
This is a super late post I know! But guess what? It's still January (a week and a half left I know) but I can still discuss New Year's resolutions right? Right? Going to anyway. Personally, I was feeling some very tangible anxiety over the Christmas break. A New Year already? Jesus, where did the … Continue reading New Year, New You? Handling New Year’s & Mental Illness

It's been 2 years and 8 months since the big break up and I find myself asking, do I hate my ex-fiancé? How do I now feel about him and what he did? It's a weird feeling I get when I think about this. I kind of awkwardly chuckle to myself. In my mature moments, … Continue reading
*I have many draft posts I never got around to publishing, this is quite old. April 2017. Still a funny read though. I don't know how I didn't see this coming. I can usually spot a sketchy guy from far away. I'm out of practice. I fell in love (8 years ago). The game's changed. … Continue reading How I got a Insta-boyfriend, Scammed and then Faded On Part 1
A hot topic among my girlfriends seems to be should I be casually dating someone and how long can it go on for? Now the guy I'm "seeing," who I met on Tinder, I'm pretty sure will never marry me. Ever. He's still in his twenties and a few years younger (which is another story … Continue reading Is 30 Too Old to Date Casually?
I have two book edits left to do and I can’t manage to force myself to do them. As I previously mentioned, there’s been some ongoing family drama that’s really brought me down. I’ve been really struggling with it and it’s been a challenging time. But things are looking up on the horizon and I … Continue reading Self-Publishing Update
It’s been one year, four months and thirteen days since he broke it off and I’m still reeling. Not on the bedroom floor crying (anymore) – thank God – just obsessively thinking about him and his new girlfriend/lady in his life (I’m not sure what she really is and I’m too scared to ask). To … Continue reading A Jilted Bride Update
There are so many angles I want to examine this from. From the dating perspective, part of me feels I made a big mistake giving the second guy (Uber guy) an ultimatum. As my brother-in-law informed me, no one likes an ultimatum –no one, not your family, friends or significant others. Keep them to yourself. … Continue reading Spoiled, Dating and Depression – Part III
