Tabula Rasa & Rambling.

Throughout our lives, it always seems like we are being continuously watched. We are watched by parents when we are children, we Re watched over by superiors at work, and we are continuously surveillanced as customers in a store. There is never really a time where we are fully independent. I understand the sense of…

3 words, 6 letters.

Sitting in a packed cafeteria, I sip my Venti Americano and begin working diligently on the stacks of work in front of me. Lately there has been something that has been sticking with me and really bothering the hell out of my mind. Looking around, I see dozens of couples holding hands, or looking lovingly…

Unaccompanied labels.

When walking down the aisles of a bakery, you pass by stacks upon stacks of loaves: Multigrain, whole wheat, and white. The one common thing about these loaves, is the day labels. These multi-coloured pieces of plastic that get stuck under the microwave serve a purpose: They are used to tell the consumer what day…

Divergence of the heart yet blinded by the soul.

How is it possible to hate someone yet love them simultaneously? The two conflicting emotions both seem strong and overpowering yet they seem to weigh each other out. No matter all the faults this person might contain, you seem to overlook these and continue to live life as normal. I have not quite put my…

What once was pure.

Seated within the University cafeteria I attempt to study for my midterm tomorrow. With my earbuds in and my textbook open, I attempt to centre my thoughts onto audio and video technical theory. “A frame rate moves from 30 frames per second to 29.97 fps. I have had a wonderful day, so why am I…

Morning sun and heavy inhalation.

As the morning sun begins to rise over the city, I wake up within the early morning hours to get ready for school. I brush my teeth and attempt to look remotely presentable for the day a head of me, yet I cannot shake this gut wrenching feeling out of my stomach. It is quite…

Turning pain into words.

Dressed in sweatpants and an oversized University sweater, I lay upon my couch and watch the Grammys with my mother. It has been a very difficult 24 hours for me and I did not know if I could have survived it. As I left his apartment, I was left speechless by not only what was…

A smoothie and a bullet.

There is nothing I love more in this world than food. I put on my warmest parka and made the trek from my condo to this mysterious Loblaws on Queen Street West. Walking into the building I immediately was blown away by  just how large it is! not only is it a grocery store but…

Amelioration & the rise from The Cave.

As I sit at my kitchen table and watch the snow flurries glide past my balcony, I am left speechless over the events of the morning. As it so happens, once you begin to publish your feeling onto the internet they are easily accessible by everyone… everyone including “Him”. He has now read my blog,…

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…

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…

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…
