University life without a car
Before owning my first car, a Gunmetal Blue 2011 Mazda 3, came many years of dreaming. Throughout my four years of University and first year at College, I had no access to a vehicle. Since I lived away from home, I walked, rode the bus or biked.
Grocery shopping on bike
Grocery shopping consisted of two hour trips; waiting for a bus to get to the store, waiting to catch
the bus back, and additional time waiting for transfers. In the summer most frozen food was out of the question, because it would spoil before getting home.
To avoid my life revolving around a bus schedule, my fiance and I, would usually ride our bikes to get around town. Grocery day was a true balancing act with 30-40lb grocery bags hanging off of the handle bars. The bags would swing into the tires, crash into the bike frame and sometimes break open, spilling eggs,...

My 2011-2012 predictions for the Blue and White.
Alright. I know Leafs fans do this every year, and every year we say "it's different this time!", but this time, I really mean it. While nobody can argue that it's been a long and terrible summer, I've personally felt the warm spark of optimism buried underneath all of the heartbreak and tragedy that's made this off-season one of the worst ever. Now I'm not talking about what has passed for optimism in the past few years, where fans get excited for a "clean slate", and comfort themselves thinking that "if only we don't screw up early we might be able to make something of it this year." Fresh starts are nice and all that, but if your optimism is entirely based around the fact that every team starts the season tied for first place, then you're probably in for another disappointing spring.
This year feels... different, somehow.

I first saw the movie trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time back in November, and right away I had a gut feeling that this would be the movie to break the very long chain of bad to absolutely horrendous video game adaptations. Since it's release, the film has received mixed reviews. For the most part, viewers have found it fun, and critics have hated it. Despite the less than stellar press, and the growing knot in my gut warning me that I was in for a let-down, my fiance and I hit the theatre last night for a light night showing, and am I ever glad we did.
I loved it!
Before we go any further, let's get a few things out on the table. First of all, you have to set the right expectations going into this movie. Are you going to see the next Academy Award winning movie of the year? No. Absolutely not. PoP (Prince of Persia) is not one of those movies, and it isn't...
