Truthfully, the only incentive that the anonymous option of AskFM gave was a no-trouble way of delivering hate mail. Which for me, is fine - I've got a very thick skin and can turn it back around as a joke. But I don't want to encourage the idea of this site being a harassment platform, and have that spread to other people who don't react the same way.
If you ever want to ask me a question, you can hit me up on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Reddit, Email, Text, Carrier Pigeon, whatever. I'll do my best to respond to you in a timely manner. For Leafs questions, we'll have the Mailbag on The Leafs Nation every Monday. I might do something similar on my personal site. But this is the end of the road on here.. for now.
Thanks again for reading,
PS: Here are the remaining questions in my Inbox, for those curious.
What are your future goals or where do you see this hockey blogging taking you? What did you take in university or college to get yourself where you are today?
I didn't do post-secondary for a myriad of reasons. Wish my situation was different a few years ago. I'd recommend taking the school route if possible, though.
I'm not sure what my next step is, but I plan on finding out soon.
does the loose skin thing hurt your self esteem? i gained 20lbs my first year of university. ive lost the weight now, but im stuck with the hideous stretch marks. it really bums me out because they never go away. it makes me hate myself for letting myself ever get fat. how do you deal with that
But you know what I would hate more than the loose skin? The fat still being in there. One day it'll go away or I'll be able to afford the surgery. But I brought myself to the best shape of my life. It's a badge of honour until then.
hi former fat, i was just wondering what do you ussally eat in one day. im trying to lose weight
It's the summer, so I alternate between extremely cautious days and snack days. I try to maximize protein though, so I can get a bit of muscle from all of my moving around. For someone trying to lose, watch your calories using myfitnesspal and focus on meats and veggies - they'll fill you up the most relative to calories consumed. As well, avoid drinking your calories.
Dude im sure you know its horrible to be overweight, any tips how to lose weight fast what did you do? And how much weight can someone lose in 4months?
If you're still interested in my response, don't focus on losing weight "fast". Focus on losing it consistently. Dropping a pound a week for a year is easier and likely better for you than losing 50 pounds in 3 months, as long as you make proper lifestyle changes.
Who is the most underrated player in the NHL in your opinion?
How did you become a reporter for the Marlies?
It was a right place right time scenario, really. Almost every person I dealt with at the time is gone and there isn't really a void to fill any more. I can't give direct advice for them, but the in-general advice I can give is to ways you can help someone out before you ask them to help you. Give, at the very least, what you get. Find situations where you can do that.
Would you ever consider dating someone who follows you on social media sites? ... Asking anonymously cause im way to shy
I bought a clarkson t-shirt cuz it was in the sale bin. Should I hand in my leafs fan membership, or just hope he turns it around.
How do you deal with all this relentless hate? Have you just grown a thick skin over the years? Have any tips for a teen being bullied?
Their bullying is temporary (though if you know someone who can help you get it to stop, do it). They'll grow up. Keep doing the things you love doing.
You were in Charlottetown? I live there bro. Being grampa dangs
Will you be buying the note 4? And if you don't mind me asking, would you buy it off contract?
why do you like drake ? hes so overrated tbh
I hate when people act like they can relate to music that is created by people who aren't like them, in an effort to sound cool. But as far as hip hop goes, Drake is a lot more relatable to the average person than the most of the high profile, mainstream part of the genre. If that makes sense.
You're my inspiration to be a journalist.
you seem to really hate lupul, don't you? he's twice the man you'll ever be so you may as well off yourself now.
I just don't like the "strip the C" narrative.
I'm going to stay alive for a while, thanks.
