Drive Ontario – In Transition: A Musical

Greetings Viewers!

We’re heading into December and here in Canada it was unseasonably warm until somebody hit that “Winter” switch a few days ago. With the cold weather settling in it will be necessary to drive to places, instead of riding a bike.

I don’t know about you, but driving is not…one of my favourite activities. However Kristy has little choice but to face this harsh reality of life in Ontario. What does she have to look forward to? Watch this month’s installment of ITM to find out!

Tim Hortons

Greetings Viewers!

I’m back in Canada and over the dreaded jet lag. It was a bit of a rush to get this video done because-as you know-I was travelling for a month and I didn’t do any musical work during my trip. But everything is back on track now and it’s full steam ahead!

In this month’s video Kristy is reveling in two Canadian traditions that she loves: Halloween and Tim Hortons. But lakeside living comes with a few challenges Kristy did not foresee. Will she get to enjoy her beloved Timmies? Find out in the next musical installment of In Transition: A Musical!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween. ^__^

Travelling Girl

Greetings Viewers!

September kicks off a whole new Musical from Just Short of Fantastic! This year, I’m moving back to Canada…and I’m making a musical series about it! What new adventures await me as I transition out of expat life and back into…regular (?) life? Watch as I tackle this curious phenomenon called “reverse culture shock”, in a new music video every month from now until August 2017.

Woo hoo!

As always, thanks for accompanying me on this fascinating journey. ^__^

Out of Here

Greetings Viewers!

Here it is: the final installment of my South Korea: A Musical series. I almost can’t believe it.

It has been a wild ride. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself and I hope you all have enjoyed watching these videos. I really hope so, because I’m planning to continue the one music video/month idea for at least the next year. It will follow my transition back to Canada and my experience with Reverse Culture Shock. I’ve already got a few song ideas.

Thank you for all your love and support. I can’t wait to see what the future brings!

Life Overseas

Greetings Viewers!

Last time we saw Kristy she was entering the Adjustment phase in her Korea journey. This month she’s back with her Muses and the Mentor to sing about life overseas: the good and the bad. The “final” stage in the Culture Shock graph is Acceptance. It’s a tough journey.

But it’s worth it.

Thanks again to everyone who made my life overseas a memorable one. I wouldn’t have made it without you. ^_^
