Break Free

I want to escape Something calls me Out of these blank walls I want to break free Fiddling my hands and feet The teacher’s voice bores me What’s he talking about?  Oh, yeah, history Look, a window! Let’s ram through it  Fly like a bird  I’m sure there’s nothing to it We can soar across the sky Full of opportunities To London, Tokyo, anywhere you please! Oh, crap, the teacher’s calling my name What’s the question again? This is so lame Written By: Alaina Roberts

But then – The sun sprang straight into action – She showed up right here to see my reaction. A…

In Her Name: Writing Contest

From the suffragettes to womanists, progress has certainly been made in terms of women’s rights. Society now tells us we are equal to men – of course, there is still work to be done. This same society also allows for, and makes money from, misogynistic advertising objectifying women. It pays men, on average, more than women for similar employment. We may have come a long way; we still haven’t arrived at equality. Recognizing the challenges of being deemed the ‘weaker sex’, many organizations are supporting International Women’s Day (March 8th)….

Bell Let’s Talk: A Month of Mental Health Awareness

The month of January: we start the new year with grand festivities and high hopes, new dreams for the new year. Yet the sky is grey, the snow is a revolting brown and everything that could possibly go wrong in the winter wasteland we call home does seem to go wrong. As time as drags on, we become weary and slumber into a sleep, not wanting to leave it nor talk to friends. Unknowingly, one might have seasonal depression, which is characterized largely by persistent recurring thoughts of negativity and general despair…

Trump’s Presidency and the Women’s March in Montreal

It was the 20th of January, Trump’s inauguration did not come with a cheer because many people have been very distraught as to how their “democracy” could have failed them. Their pain is sometimes projected outwardly towards the people celebrating with MAGA hats as well as through vandalism in various parts of the USA and even more surprising to me, in Montreal. On the 21st, many protests ensued in many countries and this time in solidarity with the Women’s March in Washington. There was even one in Montreal in which…

On the BuS

Not a day goes by where I don’t feel anxious. I look down thinking, as I ask: what’s wrong with me? My thoughts are in disarray as I mount this run-down public transportation vehicle. The driver wastes no time, which causes my reference frame to become non-inertial. However, I don’t struggle to maintain my balance, at least, not right now. Fortunately, there are two empty adjacent seats. Some days, I encounter friends on these mobile waiting rooms, but not today. It’s for the best. I wouldn’t want to irritate them…
