The Tale of a Recovering Shy Kid

Note: StageCoach has offered Amelia a scholarship for social media coverage, but as always, the opinions are my own. “Would you like something to drink?” our server asked Amelia at a restaurant this summer. She turned to me and said “Chocolate milk” in a...

Life Lessons from Hurricane Dorian

Life Lessons from Hurricane Dorian

I didn’t live in Halifax during Hurricane Juan. I lived in the Maritimes and heard all about it, but I didn’t witness it first-hand. When Hurricane Dorian was announced, it barely hit my radar - at first. By good fortune, my next-door neighbour is aware of my...
