Do you believe in magic? Most of you will probably say no, it isn’t real. But, what if that “magic” is actually a scientific principle?

Okay, I know a lot of people don’t mess with … Continue reading The universe is magic, I’m tellin’ ya
Toronto is my favourite city in the entire world. I could write reams about how living here is a dream come true for me. Like the way shades of fuchsia and mandarin spread across the at the end of Queen Street as the sun is setting, or the sweet smell of the flowering trees carried … Continue reading Why living in Toronto is a pain in the ass

For some people, chasing concrete in the blazing sun is a nightmare straight from the seventh circle of slumber hell, for others, it's a magical opportunity to crush them goals and chase that mystical runners high.
