B.A. Life (Honours) | Sharon

Yesterday I read an article in The Globe and Mail by Margaret Wente talking about what she learned in university, and that inspired Steve and I to start thinking about the things we learned.

While we can’t remember most of what we learned in class (What’s a demand curve again? Or that theory about that thing that happens in politics?), we did come up with a number of things we learned about life.

The Battle Continues…| Sharon

Pick One

As you may well be aware and as document by the date stamps on our blogs, we have been MIA for two full months. Shameful, according to all the rules of the blogging universe, we know.

FIGHTS! | Steve

I have been debating on whether or not I should post articles about arguments Shar and I have had. It is incredibly personal but at the same time our intention was to create this blog as a record of our relationship and arguments are apart of it. So on that note, last week was our first argument in our over 5-year relationship… Read more…

Long Distance in the Same City | Sharon

As many of you may know, I recently left my job in Downtown Toronto in the heart of the Financial District and have moved on to a new opportunity located north east of the city in the heart of suburbia.
