Friend Bombs (or “when my friends know my life better than I do”)

This is another long one, so maybe grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine (depending on what time you’re reading this) and settle in. I apologize in advance but after sitting on this for almost 36 hours, all the memories just flooded back one at a time, forcing me to squint into my phone frantically typing them out at 1am before my body would let me go to sleep.

I went through many different titles for this post and finally settled on this one. I had a conversation with a friend a few days ago and was informed that I had a boyfriend in grade 11. Continue reading


A Series of Sarahs – Sarah 2

I met Sarah #2 in grade 8. I had just moved into Kitchener and there were two grade 8 classes (A and B).

Unfriending in a friend-filled world

A friend just posted on Facebook that she had just finished a purge of her friend list, and if I was reading it then congratulations! I made the cut! I once read an article, or heard a musing somewhere, that in today’s society it is much easier to break connections with friends than it has been in the past. If someone could tell that to my ex’s that would be great!  Continue reading
