Pi In The Sky

When the alarm went off this morning, my first thought was Noooooooooooo! And given that the last few days have been packed, and that I woke up about eleventy-billion times worried that I’d overslept and missed my ride to the airport, I begrudgingly found a way to harness the energy needed to lift my carcass…

There And Back Again

Visiting Guelph is fun. Yes, I know I live here, but given that I seem to spend more time away (that’s not a complaint for someone who is constantly wanderlusting), it really does feel that most of my time in Guelph is visiting.

The Great Escape?

After a week of feeling like a giant bag of smashed hammers, I’m happy to say that I feel almost human again. I still have a stupidly annoying cough and the subsequent muscle aches that come from coughing fits, but even those are fortunately fading into a distant memory. Now the next challenge is to…

A Perfect Storm

When I stepped out of the plane last Wednesday, I took a moment to enjoy the fact that I was back in Rigolet. The air, crisp and cold, felt good on my skin.

A Return To Rigolet

After spending an entire day working from Jungle Jim’s in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Nic, Jason, Frazer, and I awoke way too early this morning to make our way to the airport to catch the flight that would deliver us to Rigolet.  This would be my first time back to the community since August of 2018….

Rigolet Bound

In less than 48 hours, I’ll be heading to the airport with Nic as we make our way back to Rigolet. That’s right, folks. I’m ditching our lovely Ontario winter weather to head north for a slightly chillier, and definitely snowier adventure.

The Adventure Continues

It has been well over a month since I boarded a plane. While this might be considered a sure sign of the apocalypse, please rest assured that this lapse in vertical gain will soon be corrected.

The Books Of 2019

Last year I opted to approach my goal of reading for fun without any sort of plan. This meant that most of the books I read were gifted to me, or those that randomly grabbed my attention when I wandered aimlessly through the bookstore. Not a bad method, but also not overly strategic.

The Year That Could Be

Now that 2018 has been filed away under things of the past, it’s time to look to the future and what it could be. More specifically, it’s time for me to write down the things I want to achieve before the clock ushers in yet another new year.

The Year That Was

Considering everything that has dominated the headlines around the world this year, one might best describe 2018 as a glorious dumpster fire fueled by the antics of an orange bloviating toddler and those who would emulate his example (or at least be emboldened by it). And yet, despite all of the awful things we’ve read…

A Year In Pictures

Around this time of year, I typically download my top nine photos from Instagram. While the top nine don’t necessarily align as my favourite photos of the year, they are those that were liked the most often by people who follow my Instagram feed.

That Time My Kitchen Exploded

Some of you may recall that just over six years ago – the day before my 37th birthday – I came home to a flooded condo. To say that it was a mess would be an understatement, what with the waterfall I found pouring over my stairs and into my kitchen when I first opened…

Ottawa Bound

Tomorrow I’m off to Ottawa on my last (I think) work related trip of the year. Unlike almost all other trips this year, this one will be relatively close to home and thus will not require a flight. I know, I’m as shocked as you are.

Around The World, Around The World

If my trusty spreadsheet is correct, my upcoming flight from Vancouver to Toronto will be the 43rd time this year that I will launch myself into the air and safely land somewhere else. And at some time while I’m majestically soaring through the clouds on said flight, I will effectively begin my third lap around…

A Not So Ordinary Day

If you are following me on the Twitters or any of the other various social media that I frequent, you’ll probably already know that yesterday was a rather not so ordinary day. After flying to Vancouver Thursday night, Nic and I were up early Friday morning to head to Maple Ridge.
