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).
Someone told me your 20s are when you’ll change the most and I did but I didn’t change my car. It was my consistent in a decade that brought a lot of change and adjustment.
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.
There are big shifts in music going on right now, and with the decline of physical albums and the launch of services like Rdio & Spotify it seems we’re shifting back to a singles and playlists world.
This year there’s been a lot of Canadian music out there that spans the quality and popularity scales. From Arcade Fire winning the Grammy (to some odd initial backlash even though they’re incredible), to Nickeback getting hated on for performing on a giant American holiday, to The Sheepdogs getting the cover of Rolling Stone (Kudos to them, they deserve it!), to Deadmau5 selling out Rogers Center being the 1st Candian artist to do so.
My photo was posted on Dear Photograph this week!
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.
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.
I try to put together my own best of lists, check out the 2008 one here. I missed 2009 but it’s time to put together a 2010 list! Tomorrow is the end of the first decade of the 2000′s – wow it feels like yesterday I was grabbing a hat with “2000″ all over it and the decade is done.
