Oh yeah, I have a blog. Yearly update?

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

I guess it’s been quite a while, eh? The Lance is back up and running, has been for a while, I just suck at updating. Felt kind of lazy (very lazy!) to leave that previous post as my last one. I have other blogs (sorry you had to find out this way) that I’ve been […]

Slacking and Updates

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Yes I’ve been slacking on my site here, but I started writing for Windsor Business as of their May 2012 issue. They’re a local business magazine/newspaper that comes out monthly. I’d link to their site, but it’s being overhauled (hasn’t been updated since 2007, oops!) I’m also still doing Communications-type work as well as taking […]

Adding additional skills to the old resume

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Recently I’ve taken up amateur photography. I’ve always enjoyed it, I’ve just never been good at it. Not that I’m super fabulous now, but I like capturing my subject and feel like it’s a great skill to add to my resume. Not only do I provide just about any writing service my clients need, I […]

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 29

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

I don’t often listen to music at home (I’m distracted way too easily), but I enjoy listening to They Might Be Giant’s newest album, Join Us, so it gets to be featured for the last day of February under “something you’re listening to”.

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 28

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

The thing about today’s theme–“money”– is that I never have any on me. I’m always paying with credit cards. I’m a sucker for those points/rewards cards. Above is a photo of my new wallet (Ardenes) and purse (Etsy). They both do a fine job of holding all my cards.

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 27

Monday, February 27th, 2012

I still have a few more gaps to fill in with this photo a day thing, but here’s a little afternoon snack action for today’s photo– “something you ate”. This is a Vita Muffin. It’s okay, kind of bland, but chocolately enough. I like how this photo came out, though.

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 24

Friday, February 24th, 2012

I’ve kind of been dreading this photo. How do I make it creative? Why did the person who came up with this list really want to see all these bathrooms cabinets? Should I move the toilet paper? At any rate, here it is. That little dish there is for the pure acetone next to it, […]

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 18

Friday, February 24th, 2012

With “drink,” I wanted to get all fancy and show off a colourful drink in a fun glass, but let’s be real here– I just drink Diet Pepsi all day. Aspartame makes me stronger!

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 17

Friday, February 24th, 2012

I enjoy when the numbers on a clock are all the same– which is why I was happy when I passed the spare bedroom with my camera in hand and saw it was 3:32. Didn’t have to wait long at all. This clock is pretty spectacular, too. It’s a gift from a friend and it […]

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 16

Friday, February 24th, 2012

“Something new” is today’s theme, and the above key and bunny necklace is indeed new– I just purchased it off eBay with some certificates I had. It’s on a really long chain (we’re talking belly-button territory here), so I’ll probably have to get a new chain for it before I wear it. We’ll see.
