The truth about Kai, according to a friend.
“Three words to describe Kai: excitable, outspoken, scared Kai, like a lot of people in his generation, is at once so assertive, self-assured, while also insecure and sensitive. He is so passionate about what he does but feels easily set back. He has a frenetic energy that sometimes he harnesses to do the work he wants to do, but he’s an over thinker and often gets consternated by...

I am in an espresso bar on Spadina, sitting at a large, square shaped wooden table, drinking an overpriced Americano (but it’s organic! Fair trade, man!). Across from me is a couple: Blue Jays (BJ) cap and Geeky Blonde (GB). GB has got her signature black rimmed glasses on, with frames large enough to not overtake her small, round, pink face. Her nose, mouse like with its upturned tip, points...

You know those relatively mundane moments that you remember forever? The right friends, the right music, the right lighting, the right temperature: suddenly there’s this moment that you know you’ll never forget. It’s not a rush of fear or adrenaline, it’s not an event or circumstance, it’s just a moment that somehow wrote itself to your permanent storage. It’s when the band goes into the...

The weather in Toronto has been absolute shit these past few days. From tiny teases of patio-swarming-weather to fucking snow storms two days later, it has been a solid month of summer-blue-balls. But today, on this beautiful, warm, “first unofficial evening of summer” night, I am sitting in a Starbucks, sipping my delicious iced tea, watching hot guys pass by, safe behind a floor to ceiling...

Walking in circles
I really don’t know how to get out of this race game. I reach points where I feel empowered to move past it, but then there are days where I get knocked back four steps and it just feels like I’m never going to fully make it through. Do you just accept your lot in life when it comes to stuff like this? Do you lower your own expectations for yourself? Or do just try not to care and...
The person you try to be vs. the person you are.
It takes practice. You grow up. You try to define yourself and you try to find yourself. If you’re lucky, if you’re one of the ones who don’t fall through the cracks, you end up spending a large amount of your early years studying. You theorize, you get criticized and you build a thick skin. There are days you want to die and there are days you can’t stand life because...
