I Think I Got You Beat: No Sugar Challenge

Greetings Viewers!

Here we are in December and 2017 is coming to a close. I can’t believe it’s almost 2018!

On a whim I decided to try the No Sugar November Challenge and I knew it was going to be an experience so I kept a daily journal. Now you can watch what it’s like for a sugar addict to give up sugar for a month. Huzzah!

If there’s something you’ve been meaning to do to improve yourself, don’t wait for New Years! Get started now!

The Book Report – Obama Edition

Greetings Viewers!

Here is that Book Report I promised last month.

Wow, it has been a crazy year hasn’t it? Let’s keep being kind to each other, whether you identify as a Republican, a Democrat, or just a concerned International citizen like myself.

You and I might not have the power to change the world, but we can have a major effect on the lives of those around us. Make it positive. ^_^

Halloween is upon us and that means I am crazy busy. Thus, I didn’t have time to do the vlog I had planned to do this week. Instead, please enjoy my ramblings.

Also, I am so bad: I just made a video about trying not to buy anymore stuff and here I go talking about all the stuff I bought in Seoul. T.T But…food and books don’t count, right? ^^;

Seriously, if you’re into sci-fi dystopian fiction, check out Wool by Hugh Howey (the Silo Trilogy).

Shelter Me

Greetings Viewers!

Dogs and cats are not common pets in South Korea, especially in the cities. There are a lot of reasons for this, but the limited living space for most families is a big one. However the attitudes towards these bigger, free-roaming, animals have been changing recently and more and more people are becoming interested in owning a cat or a dog.

But dogs can be challenging, even more so when a person doesn’t know how to take care of one properly, or doesn’t realize just how big their adorable little puppy will eventually grow.

And then those dogs end up in a shelter.

In my city there is a dedicated group of expat and Korean volunteers who help out at the Gwangju Animal Shelter each week. I made this video to promote their amazing efforts in the hopes of recruiting more members to their cause.

If you’re in or around Gwangju and you’d like to volunteer and/or foster a dog please join the Gwangju Animal Shelter Volunteering group on Facebook. Thank you!

One Short Day – Ottawa

Greetings Viewers!

While I was back in Canada I visited Ottawa, our nation’s capital city, for the first time. It was a whirlwind trip and I have many fond memories of my adventures. Some of them were caught on video, as I traipsed around the city gathering footage for a future One Short Day video.

Well the future is now! I’ve been in Korea for just over a month, therefore it’s the perfect time to re-visit those fond memories of Canada and past adventures. ^_^ Unlike previous OSD videos, I took segments from three separate days of filming to create this one. Because a) Canada is a hodgepodge and so is this video, and b) Ottawa has so much to offer that I simply couldn’t do it all in one day.

So sit back, relax, and welcome to Ottawa, eh?
