It’s the typical opening credits of a millennial chick flick set in the big city. The sun has just risen, glinting against the windows of the mighty high-rises, as an army of coffee-fuelled commuters push and shove their way through the concrete jungle. Subways packed, buses boarded and taxis hailed, all amass with suits and … Continue reading Nailing the work-life balance
It’s hard to believe but today marks one year since I left England and moved to Canada. So much has happened in the past year, and yet it still feels as though I’ve only been here for a few months. The past year has opened the door to a bunch of cool opportunities for me, … Continue reading One Year On: The first trip home

But, as a writer I want … Continue reading Has technology taken the ‘romance’ out of dating?
When I think of Canada never before have I thought of the ocean. I’ve thought of large bodies of water, sure, lakes for miles. I’ve thought of mountains and trees and snow and greenery, but never the ocean. This past summer I took a trip out to the West Coast for the first time. I … Continue reading A trip to the ocean
Ah the fall season is upon us. You know the one pop culture has told you about: Pumpkin Spice everything and sweater weather and flannel shirts and apple picking and crunchy leaves. Before I moved to Canada, while I understood the aesthetic of it all, I never really got that ‘fall feeling’. Where I come … Continue reading Falling in love with fall
The Graduate Bug. If you’re aged 23 or over, a recent graduate, or heck, even a not-so-recent graduate, you might have been plagued with the Graduate Bug.
