I‘m indecisive.  No, I’m passionate. I’m both. I’m a dog person and a cat person.

I worry about world peace in equal proportion to the curliness of my hair because I’m really sensitive like that. Lots of things keep me up at night- little things and big things. I know the first two Karate Kid movies by heart, but I’ve never seen ET. I love swimming in the ocean but will only take medium-length walks on the beach because I don’t like to be ordinary.

I apologize a lot, even when things aren’t my fault, but I always mean it.

Sometimes I peek during yoga class when we’re told to close our eyes. I find it a little boring. I love to walk around the city for hours. I have more Green Day songs on my iPod than any other band even though it’s not 1995.

I am always restless even though big changes scare me.

I am a CNN junkie and unreasonably maintain that I have a deep kinship with Anderson Cooper. I just think he would really like me if he only got to know me.

I have a big heart. Maybe too big. When I love someone, I love them a lot. Just about every book I read is my favourite.

I was a lawyer for a while (my mother insisted), but gave it up to pursue writing and other creative aspirations (my mother died). I have struggled with depression and anxiety my whole life and have yet to find a treatment that works completely. But I like to think of these things as motivational. And quirky. Like an energizing off-beatness that is singular to me.

Sometimes it’s funny and sometimes it’s not.

Most of all, I love to write. I hope you like to read it. I’m worried that you won’t.


It’s estimated that more than one million Canadians suffer from depression, but I don’t know any of them.

My Facebook friends all look really happy.

So I started this blog for the other 999,999 people out there to let them know that they are not alone and to let others know that even though we may be sad at times, we can also be really sweet, really spunky, really loving, and super fun to be with.

At least I like to think so.

I’d love to hear from you, so please don’t be shy!
