Dear Readers – We’re So Close

This shall be a short and sweet post. We are so close to our goal for the Farm To Fork project. At this moment, awesome folks like you have come together and contributed $14007 of our $15000 goal. That means we’ve got $993 left to raise. We can do this. If you have it within…

Dear Readers – I Need Your Help

Dearest Readers, I’m going to phone it in a bit this eve. That’s correct, I’m not going to write a completely different post. Instead, I’m going to modify something that I just posted to Facebook. I hope you’ll forgive me. Anyway, I know I’ve been yammering on a lot in the past few days, weeks, months about Farm To…

Two Thirds To Awesome

I think something might be wrong with me. Ever since Friday I’ve had a ridiculous smile on my face and it doesn’t want to go away. Trust me, even when I’m having a serious moment or pondering all things academic or think-y like, there, just beneath the surface is a giant smile. And every time…

However, given that my training schedule has been weak at best, I’ve opted to run only 21.1 km. I know, right? I’m sooooooooooo lazy. Ha! Honestly, I do…

Last Saturday was an awesome day. Around 8 in the morning my friend Aqleema picked up the slightly hungover version of me, and we started on our trek to Niagara. Our mission – to jump out of a perfectly good plane. For me, this would be my third time skydiving. For Aqleema – her first….
