As some of you may know (or noticed), this July 1st Canada celebrated its 150th anniversary. As a proud Canadian I was over the moon at being able to celebrate this milestone IN CANADA.
So much over the moon that I made the July installment of ITM all about my euphoria. One Five Oh is my love letter to Canada after my 5 year absence. It may not have been 150 years in the making, but I put my heart, my soul, and many, many hours into making this video. I truly hope you enjoy it. ^__^
In this month’s musical installment Kristy basks in the wonders of her local library. Can you imagine? All those books, in English, for FREE! ^__^
Poles Apart by Terry Fallis
The Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
I would highly recommend all of those books. Find them at your library today!
After a rather short video, we’re back with another installment of the musical. Well…she kept putting it off because of her travels, but with nothing new on the horizon Kristy must finally face the inevitable: getting a new job.
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. ^__^
We returned from our Australian vacation last week and the re-adjustment hasn’t exactly gone smoothly. As any international traveller will tell you: Jet lag is an awful consequence to flying around the globe.
January’s musical installment is all about Kristy’s horrible jet lag experience. May you never have such terrible jet lag.
