An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield

“Decide in your heart of hearts what really excites and challenges you, and start moving your life in that direction. Every decision you make, from what you eat to what you do with your time tonight, turns you into who you are tomorrow, and the day after that. Look at who you want to be, […]

Power of the Kinesiologist

I’m blatantly biased. After committing the past 5 years of my life studying the science of human movement, Kinesiology as a profession has a profound pool of resources filled with tremendous untapped potential. Forget about personal training, physical therapy, ergonomics, research, or whatever other post-graduate profession Kinesiologists find themselves pursuing. My understanding is that, as […]

Entepreneurial Journal Week 2-6

Note: This entry is unedited, unscripted, and probably uninformative. Read on if you wish. There’s a weird feeling you get when you go through a transition from external to internal motivation for doing something.

Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up!

As a 1st generation Asian-Canadian in a neighbourhood riddled with pockets of low socio-economic status and blue collar workers, I experienced my share of oppression.

Turkey Hunting

We park the truck on the edge of a farmers field. I hold my breath as I open the passenger door, trying to match the silence outside with the artificial silence we’ve created inside. I’m in full camouflage. Grabbing our gear, my eyes begin to adjust to the starlit corn field as we make our way […]

The Fault In Recognizing Patterns

It is easy to draw conclusions based on our emotions. If something or someone makes you feel good, you’re more likely to associate similar future experiences with positive emotions. Conversely, if you’ve come across a situation where you’re put in a defensive, confrontational, or foul mood, you’re equally as likely to associate future experiences with negative […]

On Wasting Time

Every morning for the past 6 months I’ve hit snooze for 2-3hrs in 10 minute intervals after my alarm goes off. I’ve been averaging a total of 12-18 snoozes before I actually make the effort to get up. The feeling of a thousand blankets force their weight on my chest, paralyzing me, preventing me from […]
