What you think you need vs what you really need - must love crows

It snowed on Vancouver Island a couple of weekends ago. An east coaster would likely scoff at what accumulated, but throw any amount of the white stuff on the roads here on the west coast, and shit hit’s the fan pretty quickly. None of us are used to driving in it, and...

Why Trying To Finish My Degree Was Bad For My Mental Health - Must Love Crows
Mar
18
My ego is not cool with me admitting this, but it’s happening anyway: I did not finish my degree. I used to be so ashamed of that fact. So much so that I hid it and even lied about it for years. I thought the fact that I didn’t complete my degree meant I was a...

Sucking It Up In The Name Of Self-Care - Must Love Crows
Jan
19
Sometimes you gotta suck it up and let that stupid comment go. You’ve got to ignore the messages from the person who refuses ownership – who refuses to acknowledge their part in what you’re parlaying. And it sucks because in order to be free you need to let some...

I’m going to talk about something no one will admit to doing in this fentanyl-laced society, but a lot of people still do: cocaine. If you do a quick google search you’ll see loads of articles about all the fentanyl deaths due to drug use these days. It’s...
