    Making friends


    Why are the things we want most sometimes the toughest to obtain? Now, finally, some traction.
  2. Friendship, but in high fidelity


    To be asexual in our society is to be told constantly, in ways big and small, that you are broken. But we can change that, and everyone will be better for it.
  3. Supercut


    "And in my head / The visions never stop / … There's just a supercut." (I know it's a song about love and loss, but I still love supercuts, mmkay?)
  4. Kara and Becky take Montreal

    Published (Updated )

    I went on vacation to visit my friend Rebecca in her new city of Montreal, and I had an awesome, relaxing time.
  5. This year I learned: friendship is a verb


    I’m not always down for a “year in review” kind of post, except maybe for my reading—it’s not that I dislike them, but hey, they require effort. Yet 2017 has seen so many dramatic changes in my life that I feel the need to set something down in this record for posterity. Disclaimer: I know that 2017 has been a shit year for many people, but for me personally, it has been rather great. If…

  6. These are the moments that mean something

    Published (Updated )

    As I write this, I’m very sore, because I spent several hours last night dancing. I had the privilege and honour of not just attending the wedding of my friend Cassie but of being in her bridal party.

    I’m starting to get the hang of this wedding thing, I think.

    Cassie is one of my oldest and bestest friends. Although there was a lapse during our childhood after I moved across town, we reconnected at…

  7. Spontaneous snowfall, spontaneous snowballs


    I always forget that November is a busy month. October lulls me into a false sense of security, for despite its containment of midterms, it never really has much work for me. Then November comes around, and suddenly it's whoa. Where did all this homework come from? Oh, and I'm working all weekend for a fundraising event at the gallery? Great.

    This weekend was probably my busiest weekend of the year in terms of…

  8. 36 days: The countdown begins


    My life seems to be full of countdowns lately. Two days until the premiere of Battlestar Galactica. Five days until classes end. Eight days until my calculus exam. And so on. Now I've just added one more: 36 days until I fly to Ohio to meet someone I know only online.

    As someone who spends most of his time online, I've come to know many people whom I've never met in my offline life.…

  9. There must be magic


    Now, what I want is, Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts: nothing else will ever be of any service to them. This is the principle on which I bring up my own children, and this is the principle on which I bring up these children. Stick to

  10. Happy New Year (from United Airlines)


    The clock hit midnight and we watched Dick Clark (who is still alive, yes) kiss someone on national television. In order to get this "pretty picture" out of our mind, we (my friends Laura and Rhiannon--we were playing DDR and watching movies) came up with the insane idea of phoning our former English teacher, Ms. Sukalo, who currently resides in the Big Apple.

    So Laura dug out a phone card and we attempted to reach…

  11. Rocking the Fort (in our own way)


    No, I didn't go to Rock the Fort this year (you American people of course have no idea what I'm talking about, let alone you poor people in Britain, Singapore, Ireland, India, etc., but bear with me). However, today my friend Laura and I did take a trip out to Old Fort William Historical Park to take a tour and have some fun (and to laugh at our friends who were working out there).
