A Big Blog Update!


I mean, hello!

Thanks for finding me here on Nice of you to drop in. Actually, it is nice of me to drop in. I know it has been awhile since my last post and there is good reason for that I swear. 


Since becoming one of the 16 winners of the Big Blog Exchange my life has become a crazy ball of stress. Well, that good kind of stress where you are really busy; not the bad kind of stress where you are backed into a cave about to become a yeti's bride. Anyway, let me tell you about it.

On April 29th they announced the winners of the Big Blog Exchange and lucky for me, my name was one of them and I found out I'm going to Malaysia. Then I was contacted by the media. All the media. CBC television, the Saint John Telegraph-Journal, the Kings County Record, and HI Canada. It was pretty overwhelming, but a lot of fun. Honestly though, I understand why famous people do like to have their privacy.

From there on out, I had to get my travel plans together. I was contacted by Hostel International and given some details about my trip. I had to get some vaccinations and I have been reading everything I can about Malaysia. Also, a very sweet woman named Betty P (I won't use her full name as I'm not sure if she'd want it to be published) reached out to me because she read my story and heard I needed a backpack for my trip. Thanks again Betty! 

Also, I have started a summer job which has kept me busy. In the summers I run the Hampton Pool. I love that job; I've been working there for 9 years and it is awesome! But, it is a lot of work. So far, we don't have water in the pool, but I have been working to set up swimming lessons, staff training sessions, organizing the office, instructing first aid classes, hiring a staff, etc. Long story short, it is a lot of work and little swimming. It is still really fun though and I suggest you should get a job like it.

Also, the blog's editor/my girlfriend decided to take a vacation. So I haven't had anyone to edit my work.

Plus, NHL playoffs have started and I am super excited.

Plus, I have a friend who runs a website call, Honk If You're Nerdy, and he would like me to write for that site as well. (Which I'm super pumped to do and I really have just fallen behind. Sorry Pat, my work is on the way).

Anyway, things are good and busy here. I am still very excited about the trip and getting back to regular blogging.

Thanks for staying with me!

If you haven't had the chance to check out these links, they are pretty fun!

    This is great! I have also been pretty busy in the run up to the date of departure, so I totally get where you're coming from! I enjoyed the interview on CBC Television. Very Cool! Well Done on beating cancer. Can't imagine how that must be like.
    Big high five and chat soon
