A few days ago, I decided to begin the new year by quitting Facebook – deleting my profile, deleting the app from my phone, the works. My husband quickly reminded me that not only would I not be able to...
It is exhausting being worried and stressed out about the state of the world all the time, isn’t it? I have been consumed with news since the beginning of this year, even more so than usual. Between the teachers’ labour...
