I haven’t been blogging much this year. Actually, I feel as though I haven’t done much at all this year. That’s not really true, but that’s how it feels to have a dozen or so projects in the works and nothing complete.
Earlier this year I found myself becoming stressed and overwhelmed with the amount of work I had set out to do, but as my projects edge closer to completion that’s all dissipating. I’ve watched as my friends from nearly every phase in life continue to move toward traditional milestones in society – they get married, divorced, remarried, have kids, buy homes, and so on…and I remain as I am.

I visited Ottawa this past weekend. I had heard good things about the city for the past few years but somehow always missed it on my trips to visit our northern neighbors. The drive to Ottawa was great. Much like driving to Montreal, you get to go through the 1,000 islands (yes, that’s where the salad dressing originated!) And the crossing into Canada takes you over a couple of fantastic suspension bridges. Who doesn’t love that?!
I was staying near the capital region while there and I have to admit the architecture was phenomenal. [More]
Growing up I always thought school was exciting. Not really because of the teachers or lessons, though I won’t lie both could have a huge impact on how much I enjoyed school. I was usually excited to get up and get going because I knew I would see my friends!
That makes me wonder, do kids today know the same excitement? They get to talk to their friends nearly anytime night or day thanks to cellphones. It’s not the same of course, nothing beats face to face communication, but I do wish I could survey some kids and find out how they feel. [More]
