I’m Dead in a Zombie Apocalypse.

Next week marks 4 months I’ve been living downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada on my own for the first time in my life. It’s been very exciting, educational, and a giant learning part of my life that I’ve wanted to do for a decade so I’m psyched to be waking up here every day.

10 Years with 1 Car.

A week ago I traded in my car of 10 years.
We spent most of my 20’s together and it was the longest relationship I’ve ever had (aside from family and 2 friends).

Favourite Albums of 2011.

Happy New Year, hello 2012! I’m a bit late but finally had some time and on the first day of 2012 thought I would compile my list of favorite albums of 2011.

Dear Photograph.

My photo was posted on Dear Photograph this week!

Dear Photograph That’s my Grandpa outside of his house in the 70’s. He looks truly happy in the shot. He died about 2 years ago but once I swear I could still feel him around that house.

The picture being posted was very exciting for me. A few months ago Amber Mac had posted about this amazing site and I loved the site and really wanted to participate but didn’t really have anything in mind at the time.

The List.

In 2005 I wrote a list based on a post from the Discovery Channel (Which is now the Travel Channel so I couldn’t find the list, that would be awesome if it still existed!) and pulled it out again after seeing how successful Danny Dover has been on his bucket list and WOW it’s very interesting looking back at that list and what I have accomplished/still have left/need to add to the list.
