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

Imposter Syndrome

Posted on July 12, 2018

Hello Hello! It’s been two weeks since I first started work at my internship, but to be honest, it feels bizarre. The first thing that feels weird to me is how it doesn’t feel serious. One reason is because my only work experience so far has been to work at Tim Hortons. Thus there’s a sense that if you’re not tired and sore by the end of the day that you haven’t really worked. The second reason why it doesn’tRead More

Writing is Difficult

Posted on July 11, 2018

Taking a break from the series I started yesterday, let me now write about something else. Part of my job is to write blog posts as a marketing tool because it makes you show up higher on Google Search Results, and it also makes your website look more authoritative. But sometimes, you write content about something you’re just not interested in, and so you then extrude it out of you, even though it tires you out and you’re doing somethingRead More

Learning is Painful

Posted on July 10, 2018

This is my first blog in a series of blogs I will publish over the next thirty days. I will post one blog a day starting tonight to open up my ability to create content on demand, and to easily articulate what I’m feeling and thinking. Today I’m writing about speaking about controversial opinions. Before the 21st century, I think people felt free to say whatever they wanted, and didn’t really care about the feelings of people around them. TalkingRead More

Jurassic World II Was a Glorified Tease

Posted on July 5, 2018

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was terribly disappointing. The writers’ failure to sew together the different sub-plots made the whole movie a glorified trailer.   A few years after Jurassic World, there’s a social movement that calls for government intervention to protect the dinosaurs from their island’s dangerously active volcano. But concern for dinosaur rights is an unbelievable premise, no only because Claire and Owen narrowly escaped the jaws of one Indominus Rex, a pack of Velociraptors, and good old Rexy,Read More

The Moral Fiber of Entrepreneurs

Posted on June 4, 2018

Eugene Fernandes   |   June 4, 2018 On his way home after school, high school student Sid illicitly buys a bottle of vodka for his alcoholic mother, of which she drinks her first glass on an empty stomach as soon as she gets the bottle. He implores her to eat first, but there is no food prepared in the dirty kitchen. Sid then puts on his apron, cooks dinner for the both of them, and joins his sobbing mother in frontRead More

Why I’ll never take a Gender and Women’s Studies course

Posted on March 31, 2018

Warning: not controversial. As someone who has friends who put up with my criticisms of feminism, postmodernism, and poststructuralism, I am often recommended to take a gender and women’s studies course. However, university is a short and costly time in any person’s life, and so there is a steep price for taking a GWST (Gender and Women’s Studies) course. In light of this, a GWST course simply isn’t worth it. The first cost is 52 hours of my life. UniversityRead More
