I’ve increasingly had the sensation of something prodding me in the small of my back, looking over my shoulder as I scroll through Pinterest on my phone, and glaring at me from my peripheries. “You should be blogging,” it whispers. “The year is almost halfway over.” Each time, I flick the thought away with an … More Where Has the Year Gone!
First off, I love the word Canadiana. We have Americana, but what about us neighbours to the (Great White) North? There needs to be more use of this word – and in general, a prouder presence OF Canadiana. Give me some moose motifs, cedar sprigs, and snow-scrubbed panelling any day. For this Christmas, I decided to embrace my Canadian … More A Canadiana Christmas: Behind the Scenes on My Holiday Cards
Guys!! I’m in a teaching competition for the company I work for – and I made it to the top 100!!! I haven’t updated about work in a while, but long story short, I love it.

Things have mostly settled down now, which is a relief, but I’ve … More Montreal Chinatown Dépanneur (in 8 Steps)
Some days you manage to pack everything in and roll through your schedule like a bowling ball’s strike. Other days you fall asleep at 8pm whilst watching Adventure Time and wake up at 4am panicking that you missed your bus. Needless to say, I did the latter last night. I never wrote yesterday’s blog post, prepared my … More Listening to Your Body
As you’ve probably noticed, the blog has undergone some changes in the last 24 hours! It’s still a work in progress as I’m absolutely horrible at any kind of template customization, but I’ve got it to the point of readable which I’m going to just go ahead and pat myself on the back for. Actually, … More A Sexy New Look
In Korea, it’s common for there to be staff dinners (or hwaeshiks) in which a vital part of work relationships are formed over food and drink. Unlike back home, where there are the dreaded Christmas parties once a year to attend, these happen every couple of months. Many speeches and bottles of soju or beer … More Prepare the Yoga Pants and Tylenol: Staff Dinners in Korea
