Wander Often, Wonder Always

BY JULIA SUN
@ VOL 19 ON JUN 08, 2018

Life is filled with new beginnings, filled with uncertainty. That’s why you need to be curious, and why you need to wonder and wander. Use curiosity to taste new experience, meet different people, and use it to find out what you are passionate about. It’s never too late to experiment and don’t let the fear of unknown stop you from it.

Leading with Your Strengths, Passions, and Values to Live Life to the Fullest

BY KATY BOYCHUK
@ VOL 7 ON SEP 20, 2018

Bouncing from contract to contract was not Katy Boychuk’s idea of a long-term career plan. Last year, she took a purposeful pause to be intentional with her next steps.  She hired a Life Coach to guide her journey, (re)branded herself, and leveraged her resources to explore a new career path. What started as a career development journey, became so much more as she discovered how to lead by her strengths, passions and values, in every aspect of her life.

How I Lost my Sense of Smell but found a Unicorn

BY MATT WESTBROOK
@ VOL 22 ON JUL 18, 2019

10 years ago Matt Westbrook suddenly lost his sense of smell, leaving him also unable to taste. As a keen eater this left him bereft and having to re learn taste, odour and flavour. Of most anxiety though was his inability to access the 'smell memories’ accrued through life. However he soon became intrigued in how this process of searching for lost files could enhance his art practice.
