Cosplaying as a One Woman Army: I Know My Value Part 2

I’ve been ruminating about this post since I wrote part one almost a month ago.  This piece has been written and rewritten more often than I would like to admit.  Everything I produced just did not seem to hit the mark in terms of what I wanted to express. I promised in my last post to discuss… Continue reading Cosplaying as a One Woman Army: I Know My Value Part 2

Sunshine and Shadows

Year two is drifting to a close.  I say drifting because the time between now and my last exam seems to be floaty, immaterial almost – I am here but at the same time I’m not wholly present.  After this Thursday my Winter semester will be done and my fate will be sealed in terms… Continue reading Sunshine and Shadows

I know now that’s not true; I’m still in the process of blossoming, of blooming, of decaying, and rejuvenating.  Just like every other person on the planet I’ll be doing this dance for my entire life.  Birthdays may mark the years, but… Continue reading Growing Up Sam

#OttawaStrong

As CBC said earlier this evening, “Canada will be different after today.” My country has changed. My city has changed. I’ve changed. This morning at 10:00am I was in class, discussing Aristotle. To be more specific I was listening to my professor engage in an enlightening lecture about Aristotle and his relation to Plato.  At… Continue reading #OttawaStrong
