Finding My Chi

I am going to a yoga class this morning. I’ve been doing yoga off and on for the past several years — more off than on due to time constraints, but I love how regular practice makes me feel. I also love the non-competitiveness of yoga. A competitive person by nature, yoga is not a […]

Ten Year Olds Inside

The other day, there was a situation. After lunch as the three teachers walked back to our classrooms, we noticed that one of our students sat in the hall. The hall monitor came up to Mrs. A and told her that the student poured his milk on another student in the cafeteria. Mrs. B went […]

Brain Mold

You know how you have those weeks where you feel overwhelmed and behind all week and you never really get caught up? I’m having that week. Add to that one of the worst migraines that I’ve had in over a month. One where I had to go to bed at eight and I could actually […]

Fruit Circus

Well hello there. Here are two things that make me happy: colourful pants and Carmex. On a sunny day like this, they both went out for a play. These circus-tent bottoms were a bargain I snatched up at Shop Til You Drop’s Fashion Weekend earlier in the year. The Saveus boys had a stand and […]

Nostalgia: Teenage Angst

Sometimes I do miss teenage angst. My hormone-controlled years were filled with so many outpourings of creativity – my mind has never been more active. All those tears, all the questioning and the bucket-loads of emotions; only to be washed anew with cold, harsh and mundane reality the next morning. Here’s a little snippet of […]
