I Swear I Can Cook

Can you cook? What’s stopping you from cooking? Too busy to take 1 hour out of the day for yourself and cook a meal? When’s the last time you took the time and really prepared a meal…not just eggs and breakfast.

A friend of mine has been married for over 20 years and typically works 12 hours a day. His wife is a stay at home mom and usually does most of the work around the house. He hadn’t cooked in a decade because “he just didn’t have the time” so it never dawned on him that his children had never seen him cook. True story! Read More

Dressing to Impress

What does it mean to “dress to impress?” What does it entail? Who are you trying to impress and why? These age-old questions have seemingly been voided as fashion and trends transcend over time.

It seems that to impress him/her these days less effort is the secret to success; and I get it. The less effort you have to exert when getting ready shows how much you know yourself and how comfortable you are in your skin and blah blah blah.

Is Monogamy Possible?

Monogamy; is it feasible? Are we fighting evolution by being monogamous? Should the love of your life be the only lover for the rest of your life? Yes or No? Well what do you think? Is marriage just for white people? First things first, when you look at yourself (whether you are a male or female) has monogamy worked for you or have you been unable to stay 110% faithful? Are you a serial cheater? Just a one-time offender?

 

We will certainly all have different responses but my answer is YES monogamy is possible. In 21st century North America however it’s just more difficult. Our culture and lifestyle allows for more chances in which one person could cheat. Visual gratification is pumped through the T.V. and other media channels every second. From a very early age we are thought the importance of looking physically attractive instead of pushing boring old ethics like family values, social etiquette or emotional beauty.

 

Let’s explore this topic in more detail with our friends from the Black Daddies Club of Toronto on Sunday, April 7th from 1pm at Onyx Barbers. We want to here you!!
