DATING SINGLE DADS

The title might be a bit misleading, this is not some trite list on how to get out there and date when you have kids. Dating as a single mom is the holy grail of dating, and any single mom OG will tell you that her dating life (when she feels like it) is better…

WRITING UNDER THE INFLUENCE: AN EXPERIMENT

Did you ever smoke weed in your twenties and say to your friends, “We should totally tape this. We are coming up with some awe inspiring shit right now”? Mom drunk is similar. You have drinks with another woman and you become inspired to be the best you possible. Confession, I’m drunk right now. This…

10 THINGS I’D RATHER DO THAN WATCH THE OLYMPICS

My earliest memories of The Olympics are fond ones. I remember my grandparents (both Jamaican immigrants to Canada) watching religiously when it was on.
