Crooked Paths to Tranquility

Manitoba resort is a seized opportunity for local lesbian couple

May, 2015

What happens when you take a couple of Prairie girls, a love for open spaces and beautiful greenery, and an opportunity? You get the Crooked Mountain Cabins resort, located just outside of Riding Mountain National Park. Framed by standing forest and replete with walking and biking trails, birdsong and wide-open sky, the resort is the creation […]

Where do I fit into feminism?

December, 2014

March 8 is a well known date that people dread because we lose one hour of sleep in the good spirits that spring is coming and we will be leaving winter for another year. Ironically, on this same day that we lose an hour, we celebrate a not so mainstream day; International Women’s Day. That’s […]

Je ne suis pas Charlie; mais je suis Effrayé

December, 2014

I just want to be clear that I do not think these people should have died. Retaliating with violence that causes death is never the right thing to do. I am simply questioning the way this story is being portrayed and talked about. Charlie Hebdo, a satirical newspaper in France, a democratic country, was a […]

Resolutions

December, 2014

I’d love to say that this year will be the best one ever. And I suppose living out each day to the best that I can, will make it so. But that could also lead to great disappointment. Having no goal for the year, but saying it will be the best ever without changing my mindset will only lead to greater disappointment.

Love and Other Choices 

December, 2014

And then today... today feels almost like a loss or like the day after a breakup. I couldn’t get my head around it all. I could say everything I wanted too and now it’s too late. And it hurts more than I ever thought it would. If I hadn’t had D here, I don’t think I would have made it out of bed.

Will you marry me?

December, 2014

Lately, I’ve been going over and over in my head what marriage means to me. With so many people getting married younger and younger these days, I’ve found myself questioning why I’m not part of that group. I personally find getting married at this age (I’m 23) or younger a serious decision that I can’t […]

Dating and the Single Mom

December, 2014

I’ve always hated the subject of dating. Granted, right now, dating isn’t a high priority, seeing as I ended a two year relationship right after Christmas. It was time. It was painful, but it was time. And, if I can be honest, it was a very low, under the radar sort of relationship. It wasn’t […]

Gender Failure

December, 2014

Now that I am finished school, I have picked up my old hobby of reading a bunch of different novels at the same time. Reading for me is a great way to learn new things and I learn even quicker when I’m not being forced to read for a university class. A friend of mine […]

Monogamously Open Relationships

December, 2014

Recently, I have found that monogamy may be a thing of the past; open relationships seem to be becoming more popular and mainstream. When comparing these two types of relationships, sex seems to be the determining factor. If sex is seen as fun and pleasurable, an open relationship or close sexual friendships are best for this person. However, if sex is an intimate or bonding experience between the people, you then fall into the monogamous relationship category.

Love Conquers All

December, 2014

“Love conquers all.” How many times have we all said those words? Believed in those words? Prayed every night that these words held some sort of truth in them? Glad I’m not the only one. And I firmly believed that they were true… until my husband and I split up. And then I wanted to […]
