  • NaBloPoMo – Day 30 – Sunset

    Since I started working from home, which I believe was 18,000 months ago, I’ve tried to enjoy a walk after work to mark the distinction between my day job work and my evening (which may or may not involve working on my various other jobs), as well as to get some steps in so that […]?

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 27 – Buy Local

    Today is Black Friday and while I’ve never been one to care much about Black Friday sales (or Boxing Day sales, for that matter), this year, in light of the pandemic, a lot of people are talking about supporting small, local businesses. When everything started to shut down in the early pandemic days, people started […]?

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 17 – The Quay

    A few days ago I blogged about Pier Park. Since I can’t go there right now, when I go out for a walk, it’s typically along the New Westminster Quay. Today I went out for a walk after work but before the night class that I teach on Tuesdays. And I ended up out there […]?

  • Halloween 2020

    As you may recall, I love Halloween. I especially love dressing up for Halloween. And I thought that I’d have to forgo it this year because working from home means no office costume contest and pandemic restrictions means no parties1. But then my gym came to the rescue! My gym’s Halloween costume contest has always […]?

  • On the eight and ninth day of donating…

    I missed doing a blog posting yesterday because I take the red eye to Toronto and then got distracted by seeing my family and going to the movies and also being super tired from taking the red eye. So, for yesterday’s donation, I asked my family for recommendations of a non-profit and my brother-in-common-law suggested […]?

  • On the fifth and sixth day of donating…

    So I got distracted for various reasons yesterday and forgot to do a blog posting. So today I’m writing about two non-profits that I’m donating to for my fifth and sixth day of donating. First up, the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre Society (VAFCS). I went to a fantastic workshop there this year and decided to […]?

  • On the third day of donating…

    Today’s non-profit is Aunt Leah’s Place, an organization that support youth who are “aging out” of the foster care system at 19 years of age, as well as helping mothers keep custody of their children. Aunt Leah’s Place helps prevent children in foster care from becoming homeless and mothers-in-need from losing custody of their children. […]?

  • On the second day of donating…

    BC is in the middle of a housing crisis, not to mention an epidemic of loneliness, and there are so many seniors living in situations of low income and social isolation. So for today’s non-profit, I’m donating to the Senior Services Society. They are located right around the corner from my home and directly across […]?

  • On the first day of donating…

    I enjoyed my 12 days of giving last year so much that I’m doing it again this year! And just like last year, I’m starting with Purpose Society. The Lower Mainland Purpose Society for Youth and Families is “a community-based multi-service organization that delivers a continuum of programs to children, youth and families.” http://www.purposesociety.org/ As […]?

  • Gains

    So I’ve completed the first phase of my training for the powerlifting competition. My training consisted of working each of deadlift, back squat, and bench press to see if I could increase my theoretical 1 rep max. In the first week of this phase, I found my 3 rep max by testing out heavier and […]?
