I’ve been noticing more and more lately that there are a few topics that get me ranting. Things I’m passionate about, that I have a lot to say about, and things I think more people need to know about. These are all positive rants and include the following topics:
If I’m in a room with strangers and forced to interact, you can bet it will only take ten minutes or so for me to bring up the fact that I’m Canadian. I don’t even do this on purpose, I just find that it comes up in many conversations. “Oh, actually, I’m not that familiar with state capitals because I’m from Canada”, “Zed, yes, the letter. Oh, right. I mean zee. Sorry, I’m from Canada”, “The coldest weather I’ve ever experienced was minus 50 degrees. Celsius. I don’t know what that is in fahrenheight. I’m Canadian”.
They look scary, but I’m so glad I made myself learn how to use a neti pot last fall! You can overcome colds much faster by using one, relieve allergies, and when used on a day-to-day basis for no reason in particular, you still feel amazing after you’ve used it. The first time I succeeded in pouring water into one nostril and out the other, I felt a ridiculously huge sense of accomplishment.
What? You haven’t tried yoga? Get over your self-confidence issues and do it! No one’s looking at you anyways, they’re all too busy trying not to fall over. This is something anyone at any age, body type, or athletic skill level can do. You’ll feel even better after than that last neti potting.
Different than just talkin’ up Canada. I’d still live in Toronto if it weren’t for my American counterpart. I love the city and think it’s worth a visit to anyone. Last week alone, I convinced two coworkers to plan trips there. I should work for the tourism board!
