Run One Mile Every Day

Run One Mile Every Day
This past week, I ran. I ran one mile, every day, for seven days in a row. I know what you’re thinking: that’s nothing. A lot of people run seven miles every day. I’m not one of them. For me, running is no fun. It’s boring, it’s uncomfortable, it’s tiring – so I had to ...

Hiking at Garibaldi Provincial Park
On August 23rd of 2015, my girlfriend Amanda convinced me to hike up to Garibaldi, which is located a couple of hours from Vancouver. It’s about a 20km round trip hike, and I figured I would enjoy the challenge. Now that it’s all said and done, I definitely enjoyed it. At the time though, it ...

2 Short Poems and 1 Long Quote I Love
I’m no poet. I did take an Introduction to Poetry course in university, however. So that should be enough to help me figure out the kind of poetry that I like. It turns out, I like inspirational stuff. I recently discovered these two poems, both which have a similar vibe. One of them I found ...

VICELAND Is Awesome

VICELAND Is Awesome
I recently started watching VICELAND, the TV channel by Vice. It’s an interesting mix of programming. Vice airs documentary style shows that focus on fringe culture – drugs, disease, travel, crime, technology. It’s a great mix of topics that are looked at in a slightly different way then you’re used to. So far, I’m invested ...

Experiences Over Things: Colorado Ski Trip
I’ve spent every Christmas for the last 28 years with my family. This year, I broke the trend and spent the day with my girlfriend Amanda’s fam. We had a great day and had a white Christmas in Vancouver instead of a palm tree Christmas in Florida.  Since my family would be apart for the ...

Edmonton in January
Yeah, it’s pretty cold here. I came out to Edmonton on Friday night for a wedding on Saturday. My two old bosses decided to get hitched, so I’m bearing down and trying to survive the -20 Celsius weather. Haven’t had much time here, but I did get my hands on some Seoul Fried Chicken my ...
