Actual title. If you don’t laugh at this, you need to check your pulse.

Congrats on always one-upping, always intriguing, maintaining diversity without confusion and always keeping those of us less inclined to follow certain news cycles to grow more engaged with what “really matters” in this crazy world of ours. For this, thank you dopplegangland.

Download the PDF Version for my self-glorifying bottom section. See my quote? Yeah? Bold new way to get quoted = put exclamation marks at the end of things written down in order for people to think that you’re shouting how excited you are about your own idea. ;D
A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that thousands of people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. Three minutes went by and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed...

I caused quite a stir with my blog describing my model parliament experience. I, since, have hugged it out with those who were not behind their actions that weekend. I have gotten advice on the “way [I] communicate” from others who were just looking out for my best interest… I have gotten chiding from others who think I am arrogant and think that I should not have criticized...
The Broken Things
Depression is not a faint sadness, it’s not an awkward moment, and it’s not a bad day. It’s an absence of something, a lack of spectrum beyond visual colour blindness. For me, depression, especially in a clinical form, takes the form of sleepless nights, and queasy mornings. It means a wandering appetite, for example. These are the broken things. The things that I know the most and want the...

Celebrating Wealth: A Macrocosm
Celebrating wealth is a solely American phenomenon where the society is asked to congratulate those with disproportionate means to themselves. It asks that there be no class warfare between the poor who will never be rich and the rich who can barely escape being rich if they tried. It is comparable to someone losing a duel between someone with a sword and the other with a spoon where the...

Semesterly Academic Plan
I make myself one of these every semester. Usually I do it a lot earlier in the semester, post it up on my wall and I cross out the ones I finish as the dates go by. I’ve waited up until now to create this by amalgamating all the important information from all my syllabuses and I thought I would share with you an idea of my university project schedule going forward: (For a select few of you...

Davide Bats Another One Out of The Park →
Davide’s best line ever (that is really applicable to so many): “Essentially, many McGill students were born on third base and believe they hit a triple.” Davide advocates making students into a movement again, advocates for merit and advocates for a fight against injustice. I remember sitting Gr.12 english with this guy arguing anything and everything. At that time, he had no...
