Super Nerd

I grew up in a trailer in the woods. It was not a luxurious double-wide but we did have an addition built on to it so there was an extra room. We grew meat birds and to keep the baby chicks warm in the spring we would keep them in the house under a heat lamp. I preferred them living in my bedroom so I would fall asleep every night to chirping of birds and the smell of tiny poos.

No Means Yes (except during sex)

I just made this video about…well watch it below. And I believed what I said theoretically (that sometimes No means Yes) but then I got handed a shit pile of my own medicine. I was fired. From my dream job. From what I think I’m the best in the world at. Oh man you should have heard me wail, like …

The Year of my Dream Job (and how terrifying it was) 3 interviews

 It didn’t start off as my dream job. It started off as a low paying trial run to see if people liked what I did.  So first off, thank you. I’d freelanced in radio on CBC for a decade but I’d never hosted and produced my very own show so it was a big leap and I was so terrified …

The F*ck It Year.

One of my most favourite things to talk about is the “optics of success” and how we tend to see, and be shown only certain parts of people.

He’s talking to you. I lie down every day with my hand on my heart. or stone on my chest and breathe and let it in. Like a …

Advice: How Do I Tell My Family I Hate Christmas?

This question a woman sent me brought me out of “Advice Column” retirement it’s so easy to answer, and deeply relatable. Under 4 min. Filmed while breastfeeding… …and when I google imaged “I hate Christmas” for an image to include in this post, a picture I TOOK OF MY SON was the first to show up. So…let’s just say we …

Crying is Radical

I feel a lot all the time but mostly I feel vulnerable and soft and these are not comfortable feelings for me to share publically. I can feel anger, righteous indignation, power, fear: but feeling vulnerable and crying (in front of people)…that’s my edge. And I’m all about walking the tightrope so the series about feelings begins here, on the …

Just 15 minutes a day of being nice to myself…

Put the oxygen mask on yourself before you put it on your kids. Oprah calls it ‘radical self care.” It’s not about “treating yo’self.” It’s about survival. …and if you’re in need of some inspiration. This is what ME TIME could look like.
