Loneliness is hard to define because it is premised on a feeling of lack—a lack of contact, of laughter, of connection, of empathy, of dependence. It is a lack that weighs heavy at 8 p.m. on McGill campus as students slowly make their way home—their stomachs growling and vision blurry from hours spent reading under… Keep Reading

The case of the disappearing myCourses class list

On the first day of school this Fall, there was a noticeable sense of unease as students filed into their classrooms.

Three hole-in-the-wall resto-bars to celebrate the end of the semester

Nowhere has the term “hole-in-the-wall” been more applicable than in Montreal’s Plateau-Mont Royal. Every few blocks, in between the Plateau’s signature brownstone apartments, a bar is hiding on the corner of a residential street. Keeping with the area’s welcoming atmosphere, these bars are filled with friends meeting after work, or couples on casual dates. These… Keep Reading

Three foods you hated as a kid—which may not be so bad now

Scientists have found that taste buds evolve—as people grow older, foods that children may have stealthily discarded, become appetizing and intriguing in adulthood. For many children, Brussels sprouts, spinach, and smelly cheese, were on the ‘run-and-hide’ list, and it’s likely that most parents have tried without luck to get their 10 year olds to consume these foods… Keep Reading
