A Commuters Past

The fact was this: people don’t change, they become stealthier at hiding their true selves. A cloak of decadent and distracting colors if you will.

Bound2

Boundaries are fences that hold us back as individuals. We all create boundaries, for without them there would be no sense of ownership or privacy. What happens if we break a boundary, or how do we actually know if we are overstepping and on the shaky path to crossing the border line between safety. I…

If I won a contest, is it still bad luck?

Good news comes in small bursts. For instance: I woke up to winning seasons 1-3 of American Horror Story on DVD. Good news most of the time is also followed by some seemingly bad news. For instance: I woke up this morning to my ceiling leaking and my floor flooded. In a deep sleep I…

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…

Left to live for.

With my back against the bathroom door, I am left wondering: Does love really  find us, or do we have to put ourselves out there in search of it? As I sit in my state of disorder, I atempt to find a small bit of happiness somewhere in all this madness. With the deep auburn colour…

Consulting the stars.

Are people brought into our lives for a reason, or is everything purely a fluke? When you are walking down the street, you bump into a person that you haven’t seen in a while. Coincidence, or fate? Texting that same person only to seconds later run into them. Coincidence, or fate? Whatever your belief on…

C’est la vie.

Waking up this morning fearful of the day ahead, I attempted to dress more socially conservative for my appointment. Removing the septum ring out of my nose, and pulling a light grey fisherman jumper over my head, I headed out to my first appointment with the therapist who would be performing an analysis on my…

To go the distance, or to stay local.

Relationships are difficult enough to do, but when you add distance into the equation, a whole new web of problems seem to arise. Long distance relationships are an intriguing idea that I have been toying back and forth  with for the past little while. With Hamlet on my mind, I am wondering if a lost…

Shoe Shopping.

Is romance dead? What happened to asking people out on a date, or actually getting to know someone. Now all we have to do to get to know someone is swipe right for yes, and swipe left for no. It seems as if our culture has taken a turn from the conventional relationships, and moving…

Helping you help me, and $5 pants.

Feeling depressed, I went out did what any self respecting man would do: I went shopping. Walking into various boutiques and stores with fashion on my mind, I had a wake up call after realizing I couldn’t afford anything that I wanted. It was not until I stepped into the retail heaven of the American…
