NIT vs Basic Income: My “Basic” Thoughts

I want to preface this by saying that I am no expert in anything related to politics, the economy, finances, social structures, etc. I am just a regular person trying to provide my personal view on these topics and that as my understanding increases my opinions may change. So I recently had a comment on…

Thirty-Seven

It’s my birthday today. How do I reflect on the past year? With this calendar decade coming to an end and a reminder with this birthday that I’m quickly approaching forty, how do I measure my life so far and the goals I had and have? When I was a teen, I never expected to…

Coming Back to The Forgotten Vanir

Over the last few years, I’ve been slowly, in spurts, writing The Forgotten Vanir, a novel about runic tattoos that enable certain people to cast magic. I am currently back working on the book and have added a few thousand words the last couple of days. My hope is to get the majority, if not…

Understanding Food Through Documentaries

I have been listening to some documentaries while working and I feel like there should be a documentary that focuses on the media’s influence on eating and food choices as well as the quality of food that exists today. I’m concerned that most documentaries and diets overlook the societal issues and current food quality thus…

Electric Car Options

A family member recently experienced a major issue with their vehicle, a vehicle that is a one year older version of the same make and model that we have. It got me thinking about our next vehicle. We haven’t yet paid off our current vehicle loan. We got zero percent financing from Kia when we…

CUPE Job Action and Strike – My Thoughts

This is one of those times where I have a fairly strong opinion on something that is happening, so I figured I had to write about it. In one word, the job action being required by the CUPE members is outrageous. Before you pick up pitch forks or raise me on your shoulders, I need…

Giving Points to Points in Federal Election Platforms

So, as I mentioned yesterday, I’m very interested in politics. I’ve taken the time to go through both BNN Bloomberg’s and Maclean’s federal election platform guides and I scored each party on their different platform points. I gave a zero if they didn’t have anything listed at the time I read the article, and then…

Interest in Politics

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned, but I am very interested in politics. I spend far too much time tracking what is happening in the U.S. and as we are in election season now in Canada, I’m spending a ton of time tracking what is happening locally for Members of Parliament and federally. I…

Geek Made Healthy

I have launched a new site so that I can have all my health and fitness stuff, as well as some of my mental health stuff all in one place so that my personal blog can hopefully just be random stuff happening in my life. The new site is called Geek Made Healthy. It is…

My First Post with Gutenberg

It looks like I was one of the lucky few that got early access to Gutenberg on WordPress.com. It reminds me a little of the visual editor, and as someone that always uses the code or raw text editor, it’ll take some getting used to.  Why Try It? Well, I have been a fan of…
