Writing Hierarchies

Posted on July 30, 2018

One thing that Marketers do is write blogs for people. A blog is made of easy to digest information that people find useful or helpful. Marketers write blogs for three reasons. One is that a company’s business will show up closer to the top on Google Searches. Two is that it’s the beginning of a funnel: a customer who looks for information on a website that offers that information is likely to consider the information/service that the website offers. SoRead More

So yesterday was a really interesting day! I went to work, then went to go see Jordan Peterson, and then finally went out partying with friends. The things that are interesting in those three things are as follows: the energy of the crowd, the drinks afterwords, and how stupidly expensive Singapore Sam’s is. If I’m walking on the street with a bunch of people, I feel safe – or rather, I don’t feel unsafe. People are going from one placeRead More

I Visited a Gender Neutral Bathroom

Posted on July 27, 2018

It was in the University of Calgary. The sign said “washroom for all genders.” Inside, there were a few toilets, a urinal in a separate stall, and one of those triple sinks made out of plastic that squeeze out a teeny stream of water. Everything about it kind of seemed like it was made for inclusivity. Except there wasn’t a space for people with wheelchairs. One thing that I found welcome was that it was much cleaner than all theRead More

Oh Canada, my homeland?

Posted on July 26, 2018

I won’t be able to finish this blog tonight, but I think it was a long one in the making. Here’s the story. I am the child of two immigrants. They come from India. I was born and raised in Canada. Am I Indian, or am I Canadian? What do those terms even mean? I consider myself Canadian through and through. What makes me Indian? Well, my parents are Indian, and my grandparents were Indian, and so were my greatRead More

Blank Slate!

Posted on July 25, 2018

Hey Readers, Today is the first day that I’ve sat down in front of my laptop and thought “what am I going to write about today?” Usually something happens during the day that I need to process or that I need to figure out, or something that’s on my mind, but nothing like that pops into my mind. So instead, today I’ll just tell you how my day went and why it was so fantastic. Today I had a reallyRead More

Pride is a fragile thing, and it’s not confidence. But in small doses, exposing your pride is good for you. This will hurt, but much less than going through the world badly. Today, someone told me that my grammar was wrong. It was a few sentences in my work, but the point was made: I’m not as perfect at grammar as I thought. And this was painful because I had worked on my grammar and studied it, but it stillRead More

The New Media

Posted on July 23, 2018

So I’m thinking of starting my own media company. Entrepreneurs aren’t people who make money – they’re people who solve problems. One problem we have is that big news does not cover events well. When I say big news, I mean publications like the CBC and the New York Times. Their journalists are really derided on twitter for the way they cover people and ideas. In journalism, you have two things to start off with when you first start writing:Read More

Science, Personal History, and Truth.

Posted on July 21, 2018

Wow. I just discovered something that blew my fucking mind open. Well, that’s not exactly true: it really stung, and it’ll probably hurt immensely if I accept it fully. Here’s the idea: you can interpret your history. I was listening to Jordan Peterson on the Patrick Coffin how because he was talking about the self authoring suite, and he made the claim that you can interpret your history, and extract out of that a conclusion about your role in the process.Read More

Thoughts on the Different Types of Dialogue

Posted on July 21, 2018

No action is singular in motivation and reason. If I put the fork in my room into the sink and wash it, there’s a whole bunch of reasons: one is that I want to keep my parents happy, another is because that’s how I’ve been raised, another is because I want to have a clean room, etc. Here’s a better example: I want to turn Canada into a communist utopia. There are many reasons for why. One is because IRead More

Yet Another Ethical Dilemma

Posted on July 19, 2018

I really need to get to the bottom of this ethical marketing thing, because it keeps coming up in my internship. I have a problem. Let’s start with the story, then move on to the problem, and then I’ll try to categorize it with other things I’ve done before, and then I’ll decide what to do. Okay. So. I’m interning at a marketing company, and I’m learning how to market. So this means that we make facebook posts, instagram stories,Read More

Update on my Internship

Posted on July 17, 2018

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to discuss the ethics of my new job. I’m a Hero at HustleCo, and it has been an interesting two weeks because I’ve done things that I would have never thought people got paid for, which is really interesting to me. As a Hero, I am learning how to market, which means creating new websites, landing pages, writing blogs for websites so that the website shows up higher on google results, creating cool designs, allRead More

Thoughts on Sensible Immigration Policy

Posted on July 14, 2018

Let’s say you and some people you know decide to play soccer together. Sounds good! So you get going and you start playing and you end up with a really good game going: it’s been going on for like, 151 years, or 241 years, something like that. Sure, there were times when fights broke out between the players, but in general, the game is successful. The goal of the soccer game is two fold: (1) is you want to haveRead More

A few lessons.

Posted on July 14, 2018

I learned some really important things today. Those who ask questions and state their ignorance are the ones who are truly confident. Those who don’t ask questions when you don’t know something are actually insecure, whereas those who do and know they have gaps in their knowledge are confident. Those who treat you like an idiot when you ask them for help should be…slapped, or rebuked in some way because they have no respect for the process of learning andRead More

Rhythm in Poetry as an Oppressive, Patriarchal Force.

Posted on July 14, 2018

Forgive me for the provocative title; I meant to draw you in, a goal at which I was successful if you’re reading this! So, let’s get started. Read this quote: “The passing of classics from our schools has in fact crippled the larger culture. Here Auden cast his net far and wide. “The people who have really suffered since classical education became ‘undemocratic’ are not the novelists and poets — their natural love of language sees them through — butRead More

Turning descriptors into a space

Posted on July 13, 2018

This is a really cool idea that you can play with, although I have no idea how to really use it to my advantage, or how it’s created, nor have I tested it to see if it’s actually an actual phenomenon When I was applying for my current internship, I imagined what the place looked like in my mind. Where did this picture of the space come from? It came from my imagination. But from where did the inspiration forRead More
