Front Of The Bus

I spend two hours of my day commuting to and from school. I walk down to the end of my street, flag down the trusty 16 GO Bus, and head to Union Station in Toronto. When I arrive at Union Station I walk, on average, 13 minutes until I arrive at school where I spend hours learning about baking to then reverse the journey back home. While embarking on my commuting adventure I’ve made a point to make mental notes about the wonderfully interesting individuals I’ve had the pleasure of observing and interacting with. On days I travel back to Hamilton alone, I generally choose to sit at the font of the bus. It’s easy to get on and off, and since I tend to have a lot of stuff with me from my baking lab, the very front is a seat with the most space for all my baked [...]

The Inspiration of Conversation

I like to chat. Big surprise, I know. *hello sarcasm* I enjoy talking with friends, acquaintances, and just about anyone else I happen to randomly meet.

“Where am I supposed to buy clothes?”

I was recently on vacation with my family in Hawaii. When I say family I mean my husband, mom, dad and two older brothers. The last "family vacation" we took was when I was 16 years old to Disney World. Needless to say, it was an interesting time to see how our personalities, interests and lifestyles meshed and, at times, didn't mesh. I'm sure we can all agree that people are in a state of constant development. Consistently growing, changing, evolving into the product of their beliefs and surroundings. Every person in my family is very different. It was quite interesting for us be together for just over a week, and I am consistently grateful for my husband being there as someone I could escape the generic "family craziness" with. While on this trip, you best believe my family is on the prowl for deals. You're on vacation-- you take [...]
