My Best Friend
Why is a dog a man’s best friend? It seems strange. We have cats, birds, and fish as pets, but none of them leave quite the impression on us that dogs do. A dog is there when you need him, quiet when you don’t, and always up for your next move. My family dog, Twister, ...

Lake Country in Interior BC
If you’ve never been, the interior of British Columbia is a must-visit in the summertime. There are lakes, hikes, and wineries everywhere you turn. My girlfriend, Amanda, has a family cabin in Oyama that we visit several times every summer. This year, I was lucky enough to bring my brother up for the long weekend ...

3 Days at Sun Peaks Ski Resort
This past February, I had the chance to spend three days at Sun Peaks Ski Resort in British Columbia, Canada. Sun Peaks is an hour from Kamloops and about a four-hour drive from Vancouver, but it’s definitely worth the trip. Lift passes aren’t nearly as expensive as some of the closer mountains, and the skiing ...

Things I’m Loving
Here are 9 things under (or just over) $10 I’m loving right now. 1. Oprah Chai Tea I stopped putting sweetener and dairy in my coffee last month, AKA I started drinking black coffee. This was a major challenge. While I still drink a cup of coffee once in a while, one of my new ...

The End of My Love Affair With Coffee

The End of My Love Affair With Coffee
It turns out, I actually don’t love coffee. Truth be told, I don’t even really like it. It feels kind of weird to write that. After all, I’m pretty sure in 2014 my Twitter bio said “full-blown coffee addict”. What the hell happened? Well, I’ll tell you what happened – this post would be pretty ...

How I’m Tracking My Goals
“I made a resolution to floss, and I did it. 12:01, January first, BAM! Blood everywhere.” -Michael Scott I had one hell of a January. After a busy Christmas vacation in Central America, I laid out 7 habits that I wanted to establish for myself in the new year. Now that January has come to ...
