    With 2010 wrapping up soon, I needed to post the best experiences I have had so far.

    • The amazing people I worked with at CLCSTC

    • Going to 13+ concerts
    • These Kids Wear Crowns - Knowing about them pre-DisBand, seeing them on DisBand, chilling with them the first time I met them, watching their Disband Discovered episode, seeing them in Vancouver, seeing them open

  2. The WOW Show

    I am not one to write reviews of stuff, unless things totally amaze me (and if they disappoint me, it turns into a rant). That alone should tell you something. What am I reviewing today you ask? ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS I'VE EVER BEEN TO! Yes, I am talking about the WOW show which took place in Toronto on 15 January 2010.

    So lets start out. It was a general admission show so I wound up lining up super early for it. I think I got to the theatre around 1 pm, but that is irrelevant. I had ...

    A piece of me feels like it is missing. That piece of me is the CCM. Wow...I can't believe I have been out of the movement for 2 months now.

    Today during a group meeting for a project for sociology, ...

  4. Why Staffing GT is a rewarding job

    With the deadline for staff apps is fast approaching, I figured I should reflect on my personal experiences of spending two summers staffing Basic/GT at both Albert Head and Penhold.

    In summer 2008, I was selected as a staff cadet at Albert Head. I was extremely upset about this because I REALLY wanted to staff SLC. Well ...

  5. Going Home in 54 days

    This blog post is going to be something other than an album review. I am at a loss for albums to review so I'm taking a break from that for a bit. Think of this as a more traditional blog post.

    I cannot believe that I get to go home in 54 days. This semester is half-over so I'm pretty excited. My step-mom bought me my plane ticket home which I am very grateful for (except I can't call it home now that I am a resident of Manitoba). My mom is supposed to be buying me my one to get back ...
