Anyone who has been in a relationship for at least a few months knows that over time, you get more comfortable with one another. However, my experience tells me that men also become more daring, testing their partner’s tolerance here and there or pushing certain buttons to see which ones produce a certain result. Through personal experience, I would like to share my tales of woe resulting from the loving prankster in my life.
Firstly, Happy International Women’s Day! Congratulations to all of the Wonder Women I know (and to the ones I don’t know) for all of your achievements – for making your way up the corporate ladder, for going after an advanced education, for being strong entrepreneurs, and all the other great things that I know you are! We’ve come so far in the last 100 years!
We are all familiar with haircuts, men with short hair more-so because they have to have it trimmed more frequently. Going every 3-4 weeks for a haircut can get expensive [plus the wife has to touch it up nearly every time], so we decided to give it a go at home.
You hear it all the time from people in their 60s, 70s, and 80s: “I wish I had taken more of an interest in [insert subject or activity that you have always wanted to develop further]”. Now, more than ever, learning is incredibly accessible. All you have to do is devote some time (and in some cases, money) to expanding your horizons.
As many couples have experienced, Valentines can be a little… crazy! The gifts, the flowers, the advance dining reservations – it’s quite a process and it’s VERY competitive. Everyone in North America knows that Valentines, though quite lovely, is a mass marketed occasion that costs most a pretty penny annually. But February 14 isn't the only day to celebrate your special someone.

On a weekly basis, I have been working towards completing an online photography course. Last week I was given my first assignment following a module on shutter speed. The assignment was to capture a ghosting or panning shot and submit it for review. I had an idea and went with it.

This is more of a philosophical and spiritual read, but not in a religious sense. It’s more about looking inwards and identifying and understanding your deepest desires and regrets, determining what you want to accomplish and how you want to get there - something many of us don’t do often enough (myself included). Many of us have dreams and goals, but lack the drive to action these desires as time goes by. This is a wake-up call.
You may have seen my photo share New Year’s Eve from the Toronto harbourfront cruise at Queen’s Quay West. Although we didn’t leave the dock, the experience was still one worth mentioning, so here it is.
I'm a young adult female working my way through life in Canada, traveling when I can afford it and seeking out my passions one day at a time...
