the whole summer happened

Its been months since I last blogged- what have I been up to? I was in the middle of my last entry and I left it as a draft since April. So the following will be that draft with updates. Why did I get delayed? I wrote my licensing exam in July and passed! I…

IRL Review: Sony MDR-SA5000 headphones

The Sony MDR-SA5000 headphone was their flagship headphone for a number of years, and fought for that title with several headphones that overlapped its release including the MDR-CD3000 (biocellulose diaphragms like the MDR-R10 legend), and the Qualia 010 (which honestly appears quite similar in design, but with some material changes, and tuning changes). It was…

April Updates

We went down to Calgary for the Easter long weekend to visit some grad school friends- it was a nice trip for the fam, as it had been awhile since the last vacay. Couple of good pieces from the trip- our Honda didn’t die on the road, which was a plus- I am fairly certain…

these are my confessions

Yup haven’t blogged in a month now, its been a hella long time. Been pretty busy around the clock in work and parenting but nothing crazy or out of the ordinary. Recent embarkment to the science center at Telus- watched a video on stars, particularly about the sun in this gnarly dome theater. Pretty neat….

going around town

Hitting up lower back right after chest day at the gym. Pretty solid chest day overall, felt solid throughout and didn’t have major wrist problems.  Feels good to do it up without any time restrictions like I have on weekdays. The deadlift was powered by a 4 shot java chip frapp. Probably 500000 calories. Back…

out and about

  H is having a heck of a time hitting everyone and everyone. She has hit her grandmother, her mother, her father, her grandfather, other children, her cousins…lots of limit setting. Today I got to see the Sony RX series at McBain Camera- it was pretty awesome, and I am super psyched because I have…

just chilling

H running around WEM- she’s been really awesome at coming back when I call out to her right away. Lots of positive specific praise/reinforcement for this behavior from me. Happy dad. Really like this pair of Nike Air Maxs but way to pricey for me- upwards of 260 CDN. I love running shoes, but I…

Back to the grind

Waiting in line at Freedom Mobile to switch over another family member from Rogers. It’s almost the last day of the iPhone promo holiday they are running. Bit of a wait but not too bad.  In the end was successful and now were all on Freedom Wireless. I was semi-reemed out at the Source a…

Staring 2018 off right

Hitting up lower back and pizza at Famoso (Sicilian and Funghi) for the night day one .

Vancouver Trip

We took a trip to Vancouver as a mini vacation for our family (the first one we took as a family just to ourselves!) the other weekish ago. It was only for a few days but it was pretty interesting. The most interesting thing for me was battling a terrible cold that mostly left me…

2017 year in review

So obviously this blog isnt getting a lot of love these days, but I’d like to try to change that up this new year. I’m thinking that I’m going to just post regardless of photos because I think its incredibly time consuming to go through photos to post. Or I am just lazy. Anyways, I’d…
