Summer 2014 / Fall 2014

I had the startling realization the other day that the last time I was happy with who I am, what I’m doing, the people around me, and where I am in my life was in grade 6.

I think, for the first time since last September, I’m finally closer to the right frame of mind to go to school.  

I should have dropped out in January and went out to get to make friends with the world.   But I didn’t.  And, as the saying goes, hindsight is 20/20.  

I spent nearly every single day of the last 4 months outdoors.   I made an effort to sweat every day, because I heard somewhere that it takes 7 years for your body to replace every cell in it at least once, so I thought I could speed up the process a bit.  

I played the sport I love, explored my Province, climbed every mountain, met women, validated my ol’ v-card (I DUN’ DID IT, BITCHEZ), said “yes” to everything that came my way, partied hard, got my first real sunburn, went and got myself a high-paying corporate job that’s all paycheques and private jets, drove aimlessly, napped when I wanted, finished a bunch of previously unfinished TV series (Scrubs, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fargo, …), got back into photography, forgave myself for last September, went on dates, sang to someone, made friends, and became an adult.

I’ve never doubted who I am, and I don’t think any amount of “University experience” will change it drastically.   But, after the only person I ever loved/trusted broke my heart, I lost that familiar confidence somewhere.   Now, I’m not saying I’m old Bambi again, but the darkest days are in the rearview mirror now.   I’m ready to meet the universe with open arms… Like I used to.

McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.
The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.

Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:
“I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”
And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:
“[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”
Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:
“To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
“The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”
And guess what? The story gets even better.
After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.
She started crying when he told her:
“There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”
And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.
