White Noise

It’s too loud. Life is too loud. Maybe that is why I spend a great deal of my time plugged into my phone or laptop. It’s easier to control the amount of sound I consume when I’m plugged in because the world seems set to overwhelm me at every possible turn. Now, don’t get me… Continue reading White Noise

Five Years Later: Fleur Delacour at Comic Con 2016

I’m a hardcore Potterhead. For those of you who are not familiar with that term it applies to fans of J.K. Rowling’s book series Harry Potter.

Stretching My Wings

Last night I returned from a get together with various members of the Wingd team in the mood for reflection. We are currently in the process of developing a book and that is an amazing accomplishment, but that’s not what this post is about, for more information on that you can refer to the Metro or the Ottawa Citizen.… Continue reading Stretching My Wings

Four weeks ago I turned twenty years old and at the sound of my alarm that morning I reached for my ‘Dear Twenty Year Old Me’ letter which I had been saving since I was eleven years old.  When I was eleven… Continue reading Dear Twenty Year Old Me: The Letter

Summer Reading

At the beginning of the summer I posted an Instagram photo of several books (including Fangirl) and I captioned said photo with the words, “I hope to finish these books within the next two weeks; between summer classes and work I’ll need something fun to read.  What types of books do you turn to in the… Continue reading Summer Reading

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
