Like any long distance relationship may it be romantic or not, long distance can be hard to do. Now multiply the attachment you have to that person by ten or so and then multiply by the number of years you’ve known each other and then add some distance and you get long-distance best-friendships. These can be the toughest of all, but like long-distance relationships they can also be incredibly worth it! Read more “Long-Distance Best-Friendships & How to Make it Work”
It seems quite common among my friends, acquaintances and colleagues to hold a certain distaste for rainy days. They see the grey clouds, the wet and muddy ground ,so they get the overwhelming feeling of the rainy day blues. I don’t. Every time I step out of my front door and it is a ‘gloomy’, rainy day I am suddenly back in Paris.

I’m calling it “The Happiness Plan”; a series of needs for the new year! It might sound like I am making new years resolutions but these are goals I actually intend on following.

Just to start your day off right, I thought I could put your life in perspective when you come to a difficult road block.
I am Canadian as well as an array of other European descents. I speak English and my knowledge of other languages is very sparse I’d say. I did not fail French but I can honestly say, very few useful phrases stayed with me. And Cree? I can’t say I know too much of that either. Oh but Hungarian, I must know that right?
