Dance mob

It seems like flash mobs are all the craze now! Ever since I saw Improv Everywhere do a frozen flash mob inside New York City’s Grand Central Station, I have always wanted to be a part of one:     Well, last Friday was International Dance Day and a local dance teacher organized a flash dance mob to

Juicy times with Mark and Jennifer

I recently got the chance to go on 103.9 The Juice to talk about my previous blog post on Okanagan slang. I had never been on the radio before. I feel like it's something everyone should do at least once in their lifetime, it's quite the adrenaline rush! Coming from broadcast news, it was really neat watchi

The newsroom is essentially just a mish-mash of desks for each reporter. Some keep their desks meticulous (*cough* Rick We

Happy Christmas Eve!

Christmas is just a few hours away and I can't help but ponder about the things that are distinctly Christmas-y, the things that (for whatever reason) remind me that Christmas is really here: Candy canes! Maybe it's the colours or the different combination of colours on the canes but I know Christmas is here when… Continue reading 

Hi there!

This is the first of (most likely) many posts so I'll keep it short and sweet: thanks for checking out my blog! I will soon be celebrating three months here in the Okanagan and I have to say it's been an adventure so far. I moved here in September to take on the role of… Continue reading
