My Second Third-Year

Not everything goes as planned. Sometimes, you don’t just get knocked off course, you get knocked off and then the path you were on before, well, it gets doused in kerosene and lit up like a rock concert and then hit by a tsunami, which, while it puts out the flames, also destroys any markings … Continue reading

Cat vs. Dog

This video has been making this rounds lately, and it prompted me to share my own cat vs dog tale . . . My aunt brings her dog over for thanksgiving every year, and every other subsequent holiday, which is fine; it can be fun, even, seeing a cuddly, energetic dog for a change from my … Continue reading

Favourite Gifts

Ah, Christmas. The best part about Christmas is buying gifts for people, unless you’re Rob Ford, then its giving cash. I savour the challenge. The second best part of Christmas is opening gifts. I love seeing what other people have picked out for me. You can really tell how well someone knows you or what … Continue reading

How to Grieve, katherinepedia-style

There are lots of things to grieve over in this world: famine, war, economic decline, poor fashion choices. More personally, I’m grieving over my GPA (RIP 3.5), my previous mile time, my overall health, my missing wallet, and the death of my grandpa. I thought other people might be grieving about things right now as … Continue reading

Open Letter to a guy I met at a party

We need to talk. This is the part where I’d offer you a brewski, if I drank beer. Would you like a Vitamin Water? Or almond milk? No? Okay then. So we’ve made out a few times now, and it’s been fun and all, but I just don’t see this going anywhere and don’t see … Continue reading

Screw You, Taylor Swift

I am not a very romantic person. Fluffy notions and ordering for each other in restaurants and standing out in the rain don’t really do it for me. I’m more of a “hey I need a date for this event and you’re fairly good looking” kind of gal, or even “I’m at this party alone … Continue reading

Some Ponderings on Hair Colour

God. What is wrong with my hair lately . . . it’s all . . .yellow . . . disgusting. I don’t care how many people tell me it looks nice and “golden” (shudder), I will not accept this travesty. It will be ash, so help me. My last boyfriend first met me when I … Continue reading

Letter to an Ex Boyfriend

Letter To An Ex-Boyfriend Hey there. How’s it going? I know it’s been a while since we last spoke, but I’ve been thinking about you lately, and there are a few things I’d like to ask. I was one of your first girlfriends, so does that mean I’ll always “mean something” to you, like they … Continue reading

Letter to a Lost Friend

Hey there. I know it’s been a while, and you’re probably going to disregard this before you even read this, if you ever read it, but that’s okay, because at least then I’ll have tried. We were best friends for what felt like forever, even though, in retrospect, it wasn’t very long. We bonded over … Continue reading

Tales from the Laundry Room: A Res Story

Ah, residence life. Now that I’m back in the comfort and safety of my own home, the very place I was desperate to leave has become a source of nostalgia, one that I now cannot wait to return to. I also seek to pass on my newly acquired wisdom and knowledge to those fresh graduates … Continue reading
