Because I Got High

We came back inside after getting high together and sat across from each other at the table. Everything was hilarious; we laughed way more than we should have.

Video Blog: How Do You Talk To Your Friends?

This is a very common piece that I use to interact with students when I speak at various schools.  I spent a lot of time wondering why as friends, we tend to use so much sarcasm and so many insults.

Missing the Friend I Wish I Had

In about an hour I will be leaving to go to an old friend's funeral.  By old friend I mean that we used to be friends.  At the beginning of Grade 10 in particular, he was one of my best friends.  Half way through Grade 10 I switched schools and we mostly lost touch from there.
