Kids these days…

November 13th, 2008 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Parenting - (Comments Off on Kids these days…)

I have had many a conversation with my peers about the safety measures parents seem to take in this 21st century.  I have watched a beautiful wood play structure that I enjoyed for my entire childhood disappear in favour of a much shorter plastic one. Though I was never hurt when using that structure – …

Sigh…

November 12th, 2008 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal - (Comments Off on Sigh…)

Last night the hubby and I took a trip to Chapters and in my perusal I saw a book in the reference section that was written to teach it’s reader how to journal. My response to this book was that if you need a book to teach you how to keep a journal you’re doing …

One week to go…

November 4th, 2008 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal - (Comments Off on One week to go…)

I am back to work next Tuesday and I have developed a great desire to start fresh and get back on track. Before the wedding I was getting my exercise, I was paying attention to what I put in my body, I even got somewhat of a handle on my debt. Then my world changed …

I just don't understand…

October 23rd, 2008 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Issues - (Comments Off on I just don't understand…)

Alright, I’m angry. I just read this. I don’t understand why allowing other people who are in love to get married would somehow undermine the meaning of my marriage. I don’t understand how people can argue that gay marriage would undermine the sanctity of marriage in a country with a 50 per cent divorce rate. …

(That’s a Beatles reference) I used to write passionately about things. When I was in journalism school I had the ability to take information and turn it into something that flowed. I loved learning things that I never would have thought of and I would strive to create a story that people would read so …

Tired in more than one way

October 13th, 2008 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal - (Comments Off on Tired in more than one way)

So I’ve been working almost constantly for three months now. I went from living in Montreal working 12 hour days to living at home but working 14 hour days. Now I’m coming to the end of that time and I’ll have a month off, but I’m putting myself out on a limb for that too. …

They told me I would have stories… Man, do I have stories

First there was the old guy who said he didn’t like people who take “soft sciences,” then there was the American who decided, while touring around Montreal, the he wanted to learn all about Canadian politics, but that’s not what this is about… For the month I am living in Montreal, working on a campaign …

An ode to Silvercity

July 19th, 2008 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal - (Comments Off on An ode to Silvercity)

Because I have reached a point in my life when I’m just not going to take it anymore: Last night I lined up with a bunch of friends to see The Dark Knight on Imax at Silvercity. We got there three hours early and were told that the line for the 10:20 show was outside …

My home and native land

June 30th, 2008 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Canadiana | Issues - (Comments Off on My home and native land)

This is my favourite time of year, a time when I am usually (26 out of 27 years) in that national capital region for the greatest celebration this city ever sees. I am Canadian, a fact that makes me very proud (most of the time), and there is nothing I love more than seeing 30,000 …
