Written by: Jennifer Winters

The thought of not being apart of society or not fitting in can start at such an early age and unfortunately continue through adulthood. Getting bullied, talked down, abused any one of these things probably more can develop into social awkwardness. It is quite sad how society as a whole reacts to people that social awkward. People who suffer from social awkwardness are described as “active but odd”, which is true, but since when was that a bad thing? If we were all the same would we really be satisfied? Social acceptance has become ridiculously overrated where people are so quick to judge. Read the rest of this entry »

Written by: Jennifer Winters

It would be fair to say that most children who are young want to grow up fast so they can do the things that they see everybody else doing that they can’t. Then not too long after that those kids become adults and want to go back to being young and innocent. Things don’t really change though when your 8 or when your 28, you still want to make friends, you want to belong, you don’t want to disappoint your parents and most importantly you still want to play video games!

So after finding out that my husband, let’s call him “J” was cheating, the first call I made was to a woman’s centre to set up a counselling appointment. Not to my mother, God, never to my mother, not to my best friend, but to a counsellour. Odd, huh?! Read the rest of this entry »

I was about 7 or 8-years-old when I saw a man pull out a portable brick sized phone, and for the life of me I could not figure out where the cord had gone. I was dumbfounded that having a portable phone was possible, for someone that was practically raised by a computer it was astounding. Read the rest of this entry »

The one thing that is easy to hold on to is the past and is the one constant thing most people are in denial about. There is no doubt that we think with our heart most of the time rather than our mind. There will be regrets, triumphs, tragedies, obstacles and so on that will keep us in the past regardless if we had any control over the situation or not. Tonight I was on the subway on the way home from work and my mind started to drift to a time where I thought I was happy but deep inside I was at my worst. I never wanted to admit this and went against everything my heart had felt to feel whole. Read the rest of this entry »

Julianna LaRocque Writes About Dignity - Photo Courtesy of Dreamstime.com

By Julianna LaRocque

In today’s society it is incredulously easy to get caught up in the wrong things. There is immense pressure put on the physical things, that I feel that we loose touch of what is truly important. Of course, I am not condemning selfishness, but I am a firm believer in the idea that once a person completely and wholly believes and understands themselves they are better able to help others. As the old saying Proverb goes, one must clean out the plank out of his own eye before looking at others and their faults. No one is faultless or flawless as our society would love to believe. In the world today, we drown ourselves in the idea that we know everything, that everything is at our fingertips or that anything is possible, but it is quite on the contrary. The whole point life is to journey, to discover and realize that in end, you know absolutely nothing. Read the rest of this entry »

Written by: Jennifer Winters

The summer is almost here, the shorts and skirts are out, patios are bright and beaming and ‘tis the season to break up? Over the last few weeks most of my friends that are not married yet are breaking up with their partners some short relationships and some that have been going on for several years. I have been married for little over a year, and sometimes I worry about one thing, how do you keep the romance going seeing that everyone else is not? Then it dawned on me that today was my parent’s 31st wedding anniversary and they are still going strong with everything they have gone through, still happily married. Life in general these days is hard t cope with let alone having a partner in the mix, but when we are ready to make the commitment how far are we willing to go? Read the rest of this entry »

Written by: Jennifer Winters

Every face has a story, does it matter what colour it is? Unfortunately no matter how many boundaries and walls that have been broken it seems that prejudice is still in the air and people that are a minority still get treated poorly. A few years ago I traveled to a small town called Tennant Creek in Australia, where I was the minority for this first time. A town of approximately 3,500 people and mostly of aboriginal descent and having a bus load of 20 ignorant middle class travelers not having a clue on how they live their lives. We were there for only one night and we had lasted about 5 minutes in the only bar they had. Read the rest of this entry »

Jennifer Winters Writes About Anxiety - Photo Taken By Jennifer Winters

By: Jennifer Winters

When the procrastination stops and ready to do the “do’s” it can be undoubtedly overwhelming. Our “to-do lists” on a daily basis can cause stress from something simple as doing the groceries, laundry, exercising at the gym to more complex: finishing an essay, applying for OSAP, making a doctors appointment etc… All in one day is exhausting and can cause anxiety without a question. We all must face the fact at one point that we are simply not super heros. The expression that gets me all the time is “There are simply not enough hours in a day” Would you really want more hours in a day? When did deadlines become everything to consume our lives?

New Book Discusses Having A Frog As A Pet - Photo Courtesy of Dreamstime.com

“We decided that what the world needs now is a little humor. So we created this book, I Had a Pet Frog, as a family project. Our talented daughter, 17 year old, Christine Liao created the illustrations and we wrote the copy. We also wanted to deliver humorous messages for people of all ages, and started the book by writing; “I Had a Pet Frog who liked to smoke. I told him it was an unhealthy habit. Then he croaked.” This also sends the message to our young ones that smoking is harmful to your health.” said authors, Dr. Wan-Yu Chao and Ronald Kerble. This imaginative family, a husband and wife team along with their artistic daughter, have created a hilarious book about their animal friends with human characteristics. “You’ll find wonderful illustrations showing real emotions and humorous situations in our book,” said, college professor, Dr.Wan-Yu Chao and Boca Raton Physician Assistant, Ronald Kerble.

There’s a new sheriff in town. Attached is our top ten list for the month of April and for the year to date. And for the first time in about a decade there is a new leader on the passenger side of the equation. Barely mind you but the Mazda3 was the best selling passenger car in April and YTD. This is the first time in a very long time that the Honda Civic has not been a run away leader this far into the new year. So there is a new sheriff in passenger car town although I’m sure the incumbant will have something to say about that over the remainder of the year. Don’t you just love a good fight.

Body of Study (Analysis)

Morrison’s comments on what his concept of fame is in the film “When You’re Strange” suggest that Morrison’s conception of fame only pertains to world leaders and those that murder them, without favouring over the other. This would leave anyone watching the film to believe that essentially Morrison has no interest in politics, but an interest in how politics effect American life socially and artistically.
