Why I Can’t Quit My Day Job

Why I Can’t Quit My Day Job

When I was a kid–all of 5 years old, or something like that–I had this fascination with leaving my mark wherever possible. I’d stick stickers to the walls, to my bookcases, to the surplus of notebooks I always had. As soon as I learned how to scrawl my initials (also, coincidentally, my nickname) I plastered that all over objects as well, much to the chagrin of my loving parents.  “MO” was found…

I Grew Up Hungry: Why I Give To Child Poverty Charities

I Grew Up Hungry: Why I Give To Child Poverty Charities

When I look at pictures of myself as a kid, I’m always smiling. I have one of those pudding-bowl haircuts and I’m clad in classic 90’s double-denim, and my cheeky grin is peeping out from under my shaggy fringe.

What the pictures don’t convey though, is how very hungry I was. My three sisters and I never had breakfast, and packed lunches were something mythical. They were something that other…

"The Inglorious Fruits": Focusing on Food Waste

“The Inglorious Fruits”: Focusing on Food Waste

A little while ago, I found myself scrolling down my Facebook feed—as is (often) my wont—and I found a video about a supermarket in France who have begun to sell the produce that is usually deemed too unattractive for consumers to buy. The project, called “Les Fruits et Legumes Moche” (or “The Inglorious Fruits”), was set to coincide with the “European Year Against Food Waste”—a movement…
