How to survive the binge drinking generation
Being an absolute degenerate waster is seen as a great achievement by most people, I know. Honestly, killing it with vodka has become somewhat of a sporting event, and frankly, since going to university I've been kicking it with the premier league. My newsfeed is constantly filled with pictures of pretty girls and their poor decisions (read: dry humping some random drunk dude when they should be getting with me) and 'omg I was soooo ruined last night' statuses occur more frequently than sexism in the Bible.

Are We Too Connected?
The Progressive Conservative party of Canada has, as of late, been buried up to their necks in scandals and cynical reactions from onlookers witnessing the eventual train-wreck. And you know what? I love it. If this is what it takes to encourage voting citizens to stop voting Harper in as Prime Minister, then skies the... continue reading
RIOT in Turkey
Being in my late 20s, I feel like I am at least somewhat on the cutting edge of technology and social media. I use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn, and all the websites that keep everyone aware of what their friends are doing, feeling, and eating.
I dutifully report in 140 characters or less how I f... continue reading
Finally in Big news
Angry is about the only way I can describe how I felt after I heard this on the news; "What did the protesters expect? That we would kneel down before them?" a quote from Reccep Tayyip Ergodan, the current Prime Minister of Turkey.
What had started as a peaceful anti-government protest broke into violence as a resu... continue reading
Finally in big news, the countries of the world are finally realizing that they are being spied on by the American government via the NSA. Figured now would be a good time to set up a little bit of a "how long have you been spied on" timeline of sorts, just in case you're not sure how this all happened and came about.
