Nicholas Cage & my wandering thoughts.

11:12 am and I am sitting in a Literature class watching a film about the growing anxieties and constant sexual fantasies of a character played by Nicholas Cage; Truly Fascinating. No matter how hard I try, I am too focussed on the utter blackness of the future. For once in my life I have been…

Fading deeper into black.

Technology is the killer of human interaction. How could I have been so stupid? Once again I fell for someone who does not care for me as much as I thought they did. For the first time in my life I was finally happy with where I was in my life, I had “Him”, and…

Touch my clothes, and I punch your face.

The Toronto cold is at full force as the deadly winter temperatures drop to a devastating low of -22. Draped in my oversized American Apparel scarf and heavy winter jacket I take the first step into the frigid air. With Witt by my side we make the commute to our evening class. Upon entering my…

Glimmers of light & Double stuffed Oreos.

I am not sure if I am the only university student out there who feels lost, but I am currently on a train to nowhere. Seated cross legged on my bed scanning through two of the required readings I need to finish, I feel as if I am at a sense of loss. It truly…

To cease and to end.

Closure, the act of finding peace within a situation. Closure is definitely an important aspect of letting go, for it is rather impossible to fully let go without achieving some form of settlement. Closure provides a denouement for any situation, as it provides you with the answers to questions that have been nagging at your…

Romanticizing the hookup app.

When living in a city filled with singles,  it seems like it would be rather simple to get a date, but is this true?…No. It seems that many people have drifted away from the conventional forms of meeting others, and have moved into the world of online dating and or hookups. With the use of…

High rises and skylines.

Last night I had the sudden urge to head home. I made the walk to the city train station, purchased a ticket and hopped on board. This was my first time taking the train since moving to the city. As riding, I learned that I am absolutely thankful that I am no longer commuting. Upon…

Sad faces in packed places.

Last night was all a blur. As it turns out, I decided to go to a party with a couple friends. With a 375mL bottle of Jager in hand, we headed out into the vast abyss of sweaty bodies within a cloud of intoxication. Prior to leaving, I was sitting cross legged on Witt’s  bed…

7am.

There is something about walking in the city at 7am that is truly calming. With Passenger playing through my earbuds I begin to watch the early morning commuters rush to work. I am stuck again within this state of wonderment as I look at the life in front of me.  Business men and women rushing…

Deeper into the dark.

They say that yearning makes the heart grow fonder, but is this statement true or is it just plain bullshit? When you have strong feelings for someone and they do not reciprocate them, this does NOT make the heart grow fonder, it just makes the situation much more difficult. I am dealing with a seemingly…

Living in a new light.

The main fear that I had about living on my own, was the struggle to be healthy. With my mother being a health and exercise nut, I was privileged to be provided with a healthy meal on the table every night. After moving to the city, I feel as if I was neglecting my health…

Pizza Pockets or Kraft Dinner..that is the question.

Living on your own comes with its own perks, but there are also some minor troubles associated with this change. The biggest peril I am currently facing is regarding cooking. I am an awful cook. I hate to cook because by the end of the tedious preparation process, I am no longer hungry. It is becoming…
