More to the Story – Wyvern Book Launch

Greetings Viewers!

Happy Pride Month!

It is so important to create and promote characters that positively portray the diverse range of identities reflected in our classrooms today. All children and young adults need to see themselves and hear their voices represented in the books and comics that they read, the games they play, and the TV shows and movies that they watch.

If you’re interested, Wyvern: Book One: The Coin by Kyle McGiverin is available to purchase through Amazon and at the Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto. Thank you for your support and understanding.

One Short Day: Disney Cruise


Greetings Viewers!

Come and sail away with me on the Disney Magic, part of the Disney Cruise Line. ^__^ Wheee. So glad I have this video completed because my new job has been putting me through the ringer this month.

Also, please appreciate that I had an hour and 16 minutes worth of footage for this video. Getting it down to 8 minutes was an EXTREMELY difficult task.

Giants in the Sky – Otto and Elise Hampel

Greetings Viewers!

After that tiny bit of a break last month I’m back with more book learning for you! Huzzah, you say! Huzzah!

Well…perhaps not. At any rate I *did* read Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada during my cruise and I was deeply moved by the experience. I couldn’t resist sharing my newfound knowledge with you all and felt that, as April 8th was the Anniversary of the Hampels’ executions, this month’s video would be the best time to do so.

As many people are celebrating Easter this weekend I urge you-Christian or not-to be kind to your fellow humans, now and always.

Take A Break

Greetings Viewers!

Behold: footage of me from Australia! Yes, that’s my nephew (and sister) in the background, and yes, I know he’s adorable. Totally makes the video. Big thanks again to my brother-in-law for the use of the hoverboard and for being my cameraman. ^__^

A lot has been going on recently so I decided to forego making a lengthy and well-thought-out piece this month. Rest assured that the monthly music video is still in the works (I’ve completed filming 98% of it so far) and I am working on lengthier, more thoughtful pieces for the upcoming months.

Until then, enjoy your March!

A Cruise Will Reduce My Tension – In Transition: A Musical

Greetings Viewers!

I had a fabulous trip to Florida and created February’s wonderful music video while I was onboard the Disney Magic. I had a blast making it and I hope you enjoy watching!

An AQ is an Additional Qualification, a teacher course. I’m currently taking ESL Part 1 online as a 6-week course.
Fun story: The two weeks I was away in Florida were Weeks 4 and 5 of my course and I didn’t want to have all that work hanging over my head (because who wants to do SCHOOLWORK when they could be eating their way around the World Showcase? Answer: NO ONE) so I essentially completed 3 weeks worth of work in a week and a half. Before we left. Because I’m awesome (and borderline psychotic?) like that. So the cruise was EXCEPTIONALLY relaxing afterwards. ^__^
