Editorial: “You should smile more”

Editorial: “You should smile more”

I was minding my own business as my church’s Christmas Eve service wrapped up when a fellow church member approached me. “Merry Christmas,” he said, giving me a hug. With one final look, he added “and smile more, it looks good on you.” My face immediately dropped, and the small smile I had previously worked up specifically for that encounter […]

Editorial: Think before you buy

In a capitalist culture, our economy succeeds based on supply and demand. In order for it to thrive, stores need to sell and people need to purchase. In North America, we are incredibly lucky to live with the privilege of nearly instantaneous accessibility to all the things we need and want. Need groceries but don’t feel like taking a trip […]

In today’s highly-divided world, where society is seemingly never in agreement and the news is full of tragedy, there is one truly unique activity that has a powerful way of uniting one another. That activity is sports. In a very special way, sports are meant to bring people together! Regardless of all other factors including; one’s race, personality, economic status, […]

Editorial: Balancing a hectic schedule

I have three, no — wait — four calendars on the go at all times. One in my bag, my fridge, my phone and one that floats around all willy-nilly. Each day is separated into five categories; kids, work, school/homework, ex’s work schedule, and elusive free time. Subsequently, my brain is also subdivided into those same five categories. I am […]

Editorial: Are conspiracy theorists really as “crazy” as we make them out to be?

Editorial: Are conspiracy theorists really as “crazy” as we make them out to be?

I love conspiracy theories. I could go on and on about ones that many people are well aware of like the Mandela effect or how Avril Lavigne died and was replaced by a clone named Melissa. I can also go on and on about older conspiracies like how Shakespeare didn’t write any of his plays or how the moon landing […]

Editorial: Finding positive outlets

Editorial: Finding positive outlets

I can’t speak on behalf of everyone, but for me at least, coming to university was a time for me to figure out who I am and who I want to be. This has always been a struggle of mine. Anxiety is also something that I have to deal with on a daily basis, and being in my final year […]

Editorial: Discovering the benefits of personal connections

Editorial: Discovering the benefits of personal connections

It has recently come to my attention that other people, even strangers, are in fact worth the effort of getting to know. Throughout my life I’ve developed an appreciation of the peace that comes from being alone. There’s so much less chaos when the only person in your environment is yourself. It’s also made me supremely comfortable in my own […]

Editorial: Decisions, decisions

In a world full of contradicting ideas, it is hard to clearly identify what you believe in and what is best for yourself. Whether it be personal ideas or the style to try and keep up with, as it is difficult to always differ if you’re aiming to please yourself or others. I find I’m constantly going through my own […]

Editorial: It’s okay not to be okay

Editorial: It’s okay not to be okay

I’ve never been an outrightly emotional person. I was never one of those people who cried when they saw a video of a cute puppy and I certainly make it my mission in life to never let myself shed a tear over an adolescent boy who did me wrong. I understand the ways of the world pretty well and things […]

Editorial: being an athlete doesn’t have to stop after high school

Editorial: being an athlete doesn’t have to stop after high school

Being an athlete was always my identifier for the majority of my life. Playing soccer since the ripe age of two turning three, playing basketball since the fourth grade and dabbling in other sports along the way, sports were pretty much all I ever knew. From age eight I started playing competitive soccer, and at age 10 I started playing […]
