Guys!! I’m in a teaching competition for the company I work for – and I made it to the top 100!!! I haven’t updated about work in a while, but long story short, I love it. It’s amazing and better than anything I could have hoped for. One of the many reasons for this is … More Top 100 Teachers’ Competition!
As with most of the world, Pokémon Go has taken Canada with full force. I myself downloaded it the day it became available, catching many a Weedle and Rattata here in Chambly. I’ve been hearing all kinds of hilarious stories about places in the world where people have become obsessed with it – my favourite being … More Go Montreal! Pokémon Invasion
So. Been a while. I kind of fell off the radar the last few days, but for good reason. Because it’s also been a while since I could say something else: that I’m an English teacher. But I officially am! Well, officially classes haven’t begun yet (I’m starting in the August semester), but I’ve been hired … More Happy English Teacher
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: positively one of the best reasons to travel is for the food. I may have left Korea fed up with the homogeneous cuisine, but since leaving I’ve craved it real bad. I’ve recreated many meals (often with the help of Ricky), although I’ve found it’s neither … More Kimchi Grilled Cheese: A Food Fusion Love Story
When in Korea, Ricky and I managed to amass a Dungeons and Dragons group. I’d never played D&D before, nor any other Role Playing Game, but I was keen to try. I’m so glad I did. Not only did we find the best Dungeon Master (incidentally one whose wife made the most amazing food that … More Arrival of Pathfinder (Warning: Geeking Ahead)
Welcome to the 401st post! I was keeping such a close eye on when to post up a special 400th piece that I don’t know how this one slipped by. That said, I think yesterday’s Canada Day write up was a very apropos, grounding sort of post to have gotten that honour. So while this is … More 400th (or Rather 401st) Post: How to Keep Going
This past weekend when Andrea, her sister, and I went walking around in hopes of digesting lunch so as to gorge on dinner, we came across a garage sale. I haven’t been to a garage sale in the longest time, so even though the people were packing everything up, we couldn’t say no when they … More For the Times in Between Travels
Chances are when you’re living somewhere for an extended period of time, you’re going to find products or amenities that you feel you can’t live without. Even things of equivalent standard: you just can’t use anything but that particular thing. At first this feeling just comes from the stuff you leave back home when you first move abroad. … More Resupplied, and Becoming a Connoisseur of the World’s Markets
Andrea is back in Montreal as of tonight!! No doubt she’ll be posting about this soon, but as her Brain Twin feeling the psychic waves growing stronger as her plane nears, I couldn’t help but jump the gun and announce this most pleasant of news. Already have plans to hang out this weekend. In other … More Arrival and Beginnings
No I’ve not died some painful, poisonous death while in the land of Oz (though there was a close encounter with a shark. But imma teaser trailer you with that and make you wait to read more about that in a near-future post….). There was, however, a large lack of internet. So while I was … More I’m Back!
