This is going to sound outrageous but if you've ever sought mental health services in Toronto you will not be shocked by what I am about to say. I've been going to therapy since I was 15, that's a total of 18 years and in those years I've seen maybe 20 different medical professionals including … Continue reading Big, small, black, white, old, young: What different Types of Therapists are Really Like
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)?
*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?
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
Now this has happened twice to me in the last year. But even the second time I feel hella good doing it/not standing for it. And that is odd for me because sometimes I can get down on myself instead. I am just too old for this foolishness. After meeting a suitor on Tinder (which … Continue reading When a man doesn’t drive you home. A dealbreaker? Hell yes!
I can't even type "I am not my accomplishments" without cringing a little bit. But clearly from my past blog posts I have an issue. An issue with raising the bar higher and higher for myself and for comparing my success to others. It's gotten out of control. This is going to sound ridiculous but … Continue reading I am Not My Accomplishments
Lately, the thought of leaving town has occupied my mind more and more. Right now, I reside in Toronto, Canada and I can't help but think about escaping this town. But what are my reasons? Not only is the question "Is this it?" hounding me but the repetitiveness of living in the same city my … Continue reading Time to Leave Town?
As I strive to be more consistent in my blogging, I'd also like to address book marketing dos and don'ts and what I've experienced. One thing I've done that I sort of regret is a book launch party. I reached out to bloggers, media, friends and family. I even posted invites in coffee shops and … Continue reading Book Marketing: Dos and Don’ts
A good friend of mine was over today and we chatted about how far we had come since childhood. Her, shortly, to become a lawyer, and myself...an author? I laughed at the notion and avoided saying it aloud when she asked me to.So I beg the question. What makes you an author in 2014? I … Continue reading When can I call myself an Author?
