Catching up with the my Atlantic Side

IMG_1524This May (man I am still so far behind in this blogging thing this summer) Meg and I used up some Aeroplan points and flew out to Prince Edward Island for the long weekend. The trip was important for a couple of reasons, first and foremost, it gave Meg and I a chance to get out and see my grandparents who weren't able to make it our wedding in October. A close second was a chance to visit with the rest of my relatives who for various reasons weren't able to make it. Finally, it gave Meg and I chance to enjoy a long weekend away :)

Off to Niagara on the Lake

I'm super behind on blogging, so I'm going to try to catch up on what I've been up to the last three months (that's almost how long it has been since my last post!).

Newspapers, help yourselves...

The newspaper/journalism industry is in an upheaval with the ongoing steady erosion of advertising revenues (some of which are moving to the Internet) and the destruction of classified revenues which have all moved online (eBay, Craiglist, Kijiji, you name your own online classifieds provider).

Household Chores

Man, painting sucks. Meg and I spent our four day Easter weekend putting a "refresher" coat of paint on the rooms in our house. It is of course a tragic use of four days off in the row, but it will help our social lives this summer.

So You Think You Can Dance? Well, I'm Learning :)

Those who attended our wedding in the fall will probably remember that I promised Meg in our wedding vows that I would take Salsa with her. Well, we're almost done our first class, one lesson to go next Wednesday. It's gone pretty well, and I almost feel coordinated doing some of the steps.

GMAT - Check... Applying to Biz School

I wrote my GMAT today. You see, I'm planning on going back to school in the fall to do my MBA. I'd like to do it part-time, but am applying for full-time admission just in case the job goes completely south, I can't find something else and therefor find myself 'underemployed'.

An Evening at the Blacksheep

Continuing on the theme of enjoying the winter a little more, last weekend Meg, some of her friends and I ventured out for the evening to the Blacksheep Inn (worst website ever). The Blacksheep is located in Wakefield, QC, a little less than a half hour drive north of Ottawa.

Enjoying Winter a Little More

Wow, it's nearly the middle of February already, the year is an eighth over. Winter has been passing by a little faster since Christmas as I've taken up a new activity. Well, I suppose I've done it before, back when I was in high school I think, and I did it a couple of times in 2006 with rentals.
