5 Ideas For A Quarantine Date Night

Image
The romantic in me has inspired this post. Being stuck at home has been lonely at times. Not being able to meet the people you care about in-person tests relationships. Even though I am single, I can still give good advice. So here are 5 ideas for a quarantine date night. 
Play a video game together: This is an idea that can be applied to all relationships and not just romantic ones. There are tons of multiplayer games couples, or friends can play together. If you do not have a console, there are many games you can play on your computer. You can play games ranging from The Sims to Call of Duty.

Whatever date, time, and place work for you. Charities often run on volunteer support, and by helping them out, you can give your time to a good cause. Heck, take your family or friends with you and …

Alternative Ideas to Defunding The Police

Nowadays when I look at social media all I see are strong opinions and ideas, and to be honest it scares me. The reason why it scares me is because when an idea gets traction, all other possible solutions to the problems we face are barely ever shown or discussed. So I wanted to present some of my ideas about the motion to defund the police in the city of Toronto. 
Being raised in Toronto, I've learned to accept the good with the bad like any city. Even as a child I had run-ins with the authorities which made me feel unsafe or uncomfortable. I have also seen the good that having a strong police system brings. Right now you must be thinking what good could the Toronto police possibly be doing. Well, I wanted to share with you the Youth in Policing initiative. It's an initiative run by the Toronto police service to help bring cops closer to the communities they protect. This initiative is a program that employs students from grades 9-12 in a be a cop for a day type program, but i…
