Summer is here and so is camping! I love camping so I was shocked that, while planning a weekend trip to Falcon Lake with some friends, only my boyfriend and I wanted to camp. Everyone else wanted to stay in a motel.

Festival season can mean many things to a lot of different people. Universally, it seems to promise good music, fun, and a forum in which you can test the waters by pushing your daily fashion in directions you normally wouldn’t. While for a lot of folks this might mean shirking the casual business attire in favour of a flow-y skirt or some rad shorteralls, some still unfortunately connote freedom and fashion with headdresses and bindis.

Sex, drugs, and dressing up. Most people will agree that these are a huge part of music festivals, whether or not they choose to partake in them. Festivals, especially the ones people camp at, draw a huge party crowd of young adults willing to try new things and push their limits.
Self-deprecation is a Winnipeg trademark. It’s engraved in the city’s character alongside polite small talk about how cold the winter was/is/will be and the quiet fear that one day, Jets fans will riot. Self-deprecation is also the reason that the phrase, “I really like Winnipeg!” comes with a tone of transgression, the careful cadence of an unpopular opinion.
