The world is upside down these days. You’ve probably noticed things are… quiet. People are keeping their distance. And maybe, like me, you’ve quit taking the bus and leaving your house and have moved your office into your dining room. It’s all very dramatic, but necessary. We’re stopping the spread and flattening the curve, making … Continue reading love in the time of covid-19
Hello, hello? Does anybody out there even read blogs anymore? It’s been a minute since I’ve been here. And what a busy minute it’s been. I recently (finally) graduated. That means I successfully defended my thesis project. And that means I successfully completed a manuscript (yikes!). The last half-year was especially hectic with grading and … Continue reading hi, it’s me, Sarah.
I was walking home and it was late at night and I was drunk, and maybe you heard the uneven clip-clop of my heels against the asphalt as I cantered down the centre of the street. You saw me before I saw you. You were a shape in the shadows that didn’t turn into a … Continue reading To the man who followed me
I was supposed to do work tonight but I can’t. I can’t work because I’m mad. I’m mad because of that Jian Ghomeshi essay. I’m mad because I’m just tired of men abusing their power… and then thinking that they deserve pity when shit goes sideways. I don’t care for empty public apologies or expressions … Continue reading This is an unflattering post about Jian Ghomeshi because he is an abusive dirtbag.
I was brushing my teeth today and I look in the mirror and my face was caught between two panes of glass, a section of my forehead and most of my nose had been swallowed in the crack where the tri-fold doors of my medicine cabinet met. It reminded me of that thing I used … Continue reading How about that fat-shaming Netflix series?
I want to write about what happened to me but I don’t know where to begin. I start. Stop. Start. Stop. Start. Stop. Over and over again. I wonder is this right? Am I getting it right? And sometimes I wonder if I’m even allowed to say what happened, if that story even belongs to … Continue reading F*CK YOU
I realize at this point we are well into the New Year, but I figure it’s never too late to talk about resolutions and reflections and all things NYE. If you know me, you know I love New Year’s Eve. It’s my favourite night of the year–I never want it to end, actually. There’s something about ending … Continue reading Happy (belated) New Year!
It’s been a couple weeks since T-Swift’s newest album was made available on streaming services and I can’t stop listening to it. I’m not sure why. I trash-talked the singles non-stop, and my first listen of the album had me laughing out LOUD, but here I am, listening to it on repeat, singing along, and kind … Continue reading Taylor Swift’s reputation
I’ve been in a battle with my body since I was 10 years old. I looked down at my legs and saw my bulbous calves and thought “This is fat” and fat is bad and I am fat and I am bad. And that circular thinking has plagued me since then, eating away at self-esteem … Continue reading Workin’ on my fitness
I love ice cream in all its forms. In a cone, in a cup, in a milkshake, in a float. Deep-fried. In sandwiches. On a stick. Dipped in chocolate. Whatever way you can conceive of serving ice cream, I’ve probably had it that way and I’ve probably really enjoyed it. I love it all. So … Continue reading National ice cream day
