When you meet someone new for the first time, one of the first questions asked is “what do you do for a living?” It seems like an innocent enough question to start a conversation with. Right up there along with a comment about the weather we’re having today. But when you’re unemployed this question can hurt. A lot.

It’s no secret that I kind of hate where we live. 5 years ago, my now husband and I moved into a 3 bedroom townhouse, where we started our lives together as a new couple. Within 3 months of moving into our townhouse, however, we discovered mold. And since then, we’ve discovered mold numerous times and in numerous places.

If you are about to graduate high school or are planning to further your education, spring can be a very stressful time of year while you wait for those College and University acceptance (and rejection) letters.

A few months ago, completely out of nowhere, I got an email asking if I’d be interested in selling my blog. My immediate thought was “No. NEVER!” I almost just deleted the email without giving it a second thought. But sure enough, not only did I give it a second thought, but I gave it a third, and fourth, and fifth… Over the next few days, I re-read the email ...

Sleeping is one of my favourite things to do. Even though beating my sleeping problems is something I’ve struggled with for most of my adult life. As a high school and university student, my insomnia got to be so bad that I almost failed an 8 a.m. class or two. Although things are better for me now, my sleeping problems still reappear every couple of months. Like they have been ...

Worrying about money is probably the last thing on your mind. Until you get home, that is… Many people overspend while on vacation. Especially if you use a credit card to help ...

These days, many people have decided that the traditional world of work is simply not going to work for them. Whether the issue is a lack of personal freedom, unimpressive pay, and/or a horrible boss, many people (especially us millennials) have developed an entrepreneurial attitude, and want to start our own businesses. If you’re one of these people, you might be thinking about starting an online business or turning your ...

Today marks the 6th birthday of My Life, I Guess…! Over the last 6 years, a lot has changed in my life. Personally, professionally, and online. In some ways, it feels like this blog has always been a part of my life. Yet at the same time, I can’t believe that it’s already been 6 years. I have been blogging in one form or another since we first got the ...
