Notice how the mountains have bald/light green patches in the foliage? That’s because the mountain was on fire a few weeks back... yes, all the patches, at the same time! It’s been wonderful watching the vegetation grow back so rapidly.
“Sometimes, you have to make a leap of faith.”

Life is full of points which present a choice. The choices we make and the decision making process all result in our life's path. There is no destination.
After debating for a few weeks on a choice I had to make, one was finally made. The details, thought process and emotions are all laid out here. Whatever decisions you face in life, take time to evaluate them and own whatever comes of your choice.
A small update about how I've been doing given the rough previous month. It's good to be back on the upswing. Feeling the same optimism as during the first few months when I moved here. This is partially due to the results of a meeting held a few weeks back that really boosted my energy. I share about how my efforts with my new tactic of increasing results from last weeks post, and talk about a new project I want to start for my kids at school! Click below to hear all about it!
There have been some technical issues uploading my audio file for the originally intended post. In the interim, a new post on workplace culture comparison reviews the effects it's having, and the supposed logic behind it here. Maintaining a positive outlook has been challenging. Having goals and a schedule really supports the continued pursuit to achieving them. Thanks for tuning in, I'll keep working on getting my other post up!
It's become obvious to me how much the kids in class sense my interaction with others. They're aware of my rapport and level of engagement, which results in they themselves wanting more attention.
I go on about the extent this kid insists on being the one I spend my time with and how it's backfiring.
Within the past couple weeks, I've been assigned a new class called VIP Get Smart 4, the most advanced English class offered by my school. The VIP portion means the class is longer and occurs twice a week vs. once a week of typical classes.
Two weeks ago, as my student and I read through the portion of the book for that class, I noticed the book mention students should create a questionnaire about who does which chores at home, and have classmates fill it out. Obviously, in my case, it was a single student. As a result, I created the same questionnaire on my ipad and had my student ask the few questions to each person at work at the time (20). Afterwards we reviewed the results and discussed them.
On March 15, 2016 I launched Solo Trip Abroad with the intention of having a record of my travels, adventures and thoughts along the way. This would serve as a way to offer what I learn, provide resources and insight to anyone who is interested in taking action and moving abroad or considering a travel-as-a-lifestyle change.
About 15 years ago, while living in a tiny town, before my parents moved to the East side of the Greater Toronto Area, my family started fostering young children. After moving across the GTA, this continued and the first kids we took in were these two young brothers. Several years after we started fostering them, they were adopted. Having arrived at our home when the younger one was just a few weeks old, and now he's a pre-teen meant I was involved in various parental aspects of their growing up.
