The first time I read the quote “If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough.” was off a twitter friends feed and it spoke to me right away. It made me think... At that moment I don't think I had a lot going in terms of dreams and... Continue reading

I feel like creativity can easily get lost with the day-to-day/routine aspects of our lives. Wake up, go to work, come home, dinner, chores... with not a lot of time left to be creative. (Unless you are already living your dream and working on your own time, then maybe you... Continue reading

I don't always have something clever/exciting/worthwhile to write about every day, so that is where my little notebook comes in. I carry this thing around with me pretty much wherever I go in case an idea for a post comes to me. Sometimes it is just a single word, the... Continue reading

I have to give Greg credit for inspiring me to do throwback/flashback posts with his Throwback Thursday post yesterday. What a clever way to blog about something you haven't yet that is currently irrelevant but still worth posting about! - pure genius! Awhile ago I did a flashback to the... Continue reading

The world has a major hard-on for Dave Grohl right now, and I don't blame them! He is a super inspiring guy! (And not to mention unbelievably talented!) The following quote of his speaks mountains to me. (And bonus points coming from someone from one of my favorite bands!) "I... Continue reading

I have always wanted to create an iconic rock photograph (or at least have a photograph look like it could potentially become iconic) but I never expected in a million years that I would create an image that nearly a year later I would still love so much. So I... Continue reading

A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS ALREADY GAVE ME FEEDBACK! Last week my blog turned one and I shared my blog goals with you. In summary/short, I'd love to have an overall better blog. So I've put together a short reader survey to help me get a better... Continue reading

Any new music that I have bought lately has pretty much all been on vinyl. I love the quality, the sound, the pure bliss, the moments you share with your friends sitting around just listening to the music - hearing the words, feeling all emotions. (PS guys - we don't... Continue reading

You know when you have a bunch of plans to do on your weekend, but would rather stay in bed until noon and laze around? Yep, that is totally me today and I am surprisingly okay with that. Yeah, I went to look for new winter boots this afternoon but... Continue reading

I've sat and looked at a blank "New Post" screen every day this week, this was even after looking at my prompts I have written in a notebook when I have run out of ideas of what to write. I only typed out the start of a post the other... Continue reading

So now that my blog is a year old and I am still very enthuastic about it, I should probably be setting some goals on how to achieve the growth I want. I started off a year ago with one simple, yet apparently hard to manage goal, hoping to blog... Continue reading

Hanging out/working... same thing really. This weekend I am doing photo and video for Cold Lake band, Realm & Sky in the Sound Extractor studios here in Edmonton.

So it has been 12 hours since my challenge has ended. I am pretty exhausted... (I slept a solid 8 hours again last night to catch up on precious sleep, but just feel mentally exhausted.) You probably know from my instagram/twitter or my previous blog post that I did not... Continue reading

THINKING ABOUT Future plans for something rad. I've briefly mentioned it MONTHS ago on my blog, forgot about it, and now starting the brainstorming process for it to get it started. It's a lot of work/learning but I am in it for the whole adventure. You should hear about it... Continue reading

So this is hour zero of this crazy challenge I had set out for myself! I have thankfully got rid of my lingering headache and tiny allergic reaction. But I am a little bit tired... I stayed up WAY too late last night watching The 100 (OMG SO GOOD!!!) and... Continue reading

Or as you are probably calling it "ARE YOU FREAKIN INSANE?!" or maybe it is ABOUT FLIPPIN TIME YOU ARE GETTING THIS SHIT DONE!!! Both are pretty acceptable in this situation. Anyway, this weekend starting Friday at 6 PM for 24 hours (yep, you read that right. 24 HOURS) I... Continue reading
