Doctor Google

by Rhianna on July 23, 2014

A little while ago I found a funny meme on Facebook and added it to our wall. It said something along the lines of: “Googling your symptoms is the quickest way to convince yourself that you are dying” This is absolutely, without a doubt, true. In fact I have done it myself. The positive I

Pay It Forward

by Rhianna on July 17, 2014

I know we are supposed to wake up each day and choose to be happy. I know it can be a conscious decision; we are the ones in charge of our mood and how we decide to feel each day, we have the power. But sometimes you wake up feeling less than great. And making

Documentaries For Your Viewing Pleasure

by Rhianna on July 3, 2014

Sometimes there is nothing better than watching something that stimulates you on an eye opening, intellectual level.

Tell Me Your Story

by Rhianna on June 24, 2014

I remember the precise moment I started to read. I was in grade 2 and there was a new book on the Silent Reading trolley about a dashing fox with 9 tails. Previously I had fought against reading, struggling over the words, wrestling with them one at a time; preferring to memorise a story and

Veggies Without Vitamins?

by Rhianna on February 20, 2014

A friend of mine sent me this article this morning and asked what I thought. I have taken part of it and placed it here for you to read. What do you think? Imagine the surprise of going online and discovering that the vitamin and mineral content of vegetables has drastically dropped. That’s what happened

21st Century Insanity

by Rhianna on February 18, 2014

I feel like I have been a bit bombarded this week with examples of situations in our society that I believe are ridiculous to the point of being insane. As a relatively normal human of average intelligence I find myself asking, “If I think these situations are bonkers, then doesn’t everyone else? And if that’s

GMO or OMG?

by Rhianna on February 13, 2014

Genetic modification has been cropping up a lot for me over the past week (no pun intended). In all different areas I feel like GMO is getting harder and harder to avoid. It started on Sunday when we went for our organic farm tour as part of the Food Prep Intensive Retreat. One of the
